Paint correction, also known as paint polishing, is the act of leveling paint to remove defects, ​including wash induced swirls, light scratches, hard water spots, bird dropping etchings, and scuffs via machine buffing.

 

Through machine polishing we are also able to drastically improve the gloss of a vehicle’s paintwork. With a TLC Auto Detail paint correction, the defects will be actually removed, ​not just hidden like many other detail shops offer.

  Benefits of Paint Correction  

HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED PAINT CORRECTION?

If your vehicle's paint shows signs of swirl marks, fine scratches, dullness, or uneven texture, it may benefit from paint correction. These imperfections are often caused by improper washing, environmental factors, or aging. Consulting with a TLC Auto Detail professional can help assess the condition of your vehicle's paint and determine if paint correction is necessary.

HOW LONG WILL A PAINT CORRECTION TAKE?

The duration of paint correction depends on several factors, including the size of the vehicle, the severity of paint defects, and the desired level of correction. It can range from a few hours for minor corrections to multiple days for extensive paint restoration projects. It is best to consult with one of our professional detailers for a more accurate estimate based on your specific needs and the condition of your vehicle's paint.

CAN SWIRLS AND SCRATCHES BE REMOVED COMPLETELY?

In many cases, paint correction can significantly reduce the appearance of swirl marks and scratches, making them less noticeable or even completely removing them. However, the extent to which they can be eliminated depends on various factors, such as the severity of the imperfections, the thickness of the clear coat, and the overall condition of the paint. Deep or severe scratches that have penetrated the base layer of paint may require more extensive repair methods or touch-up work. It's recommended to consult with one of our professionals for an accurate assessment and realistic expectations regarding your vehicle's specific paint imperfections.
