What is Paint Correction?

Paint correction (machine buff or machine polishing) is a process of removing or minimizing defects such as swirls, hazing, scratches, etching, water spots, and light oxidation to restore your paint back to it's original condition. Clear coat is removed on a microscopic level to even the surface, The goal is to remove these defects safely, while making sure to preserve the clear coat as much as possible. This level of service is what sets other detailers from the rest.

What causes swirls & scratches?

A number of things could cause swirls & scratches in your vehicles paint: Improper washing techniques & tools, tunnel washes, using brushes to remove snow from the vehicle, using brushes at self-serve car washes. These are just a list of the more common causes for swirls & scratches. There's no 100% to prevent them, but using the correct tools & techniques could minimize them greatly.

What is involved in paint correction?

Paint correction is a extremely time consuming process. One must have an eye and the skill to perfect the art that goes into restoring paint work. A number of polishers, compounds, finishing polishes, pads, and specific lighting is used to be able to complete each task. The key is to remove surface defects safely to restore paint back to it's original condition, while also preserving the clear coat as much as possible. A lot of time, testing, and patients is key when performing any type of paint correction work. Paint correction can range from 6 hours to 20 hours pending on what your goal is. 

Is paint correction right for me?

If you have poor washing drying habits, or love going to  the automatic tunnel washes, we would recommend just sticking to a wash & wax (we care about not only our time, but your time and money as well). To be 100%, there's no true way to avoid swirls and scratches. But following the right washing procedures can hugely reduce the chance of swirls and scratches.
