Are you Price-Shopping?

There are four primary considerations when price shopping for a correction and paint protection company. We’re always available to provide free consultations. Let’s make your vehicle look amazing today!

The Technician

How qualified and experienced is the technician working your car? Trainee? Hourly employee? Seasoned car pro? The technician is the most critical part of the service. Don't settle for less!

Vehicle Type

Pricing also depends on car size, type, and condition. Large and oversized vehicles require more product, prep work, and time. Exotic vehicles have more curves and are more challenging.

Car Condition

The car's condition directly impacts paint correction pricing as more work and time lead to higher pricing. Factors include the car's age, the paint type, and the severity of the damage.


The level of paint correction required is subjective. Most clients are perfectly happy with a 1-Step Correction. Others desire near perfection. Let us show you some options and you decide.

Not only is he professional and affordable, but he buffed out the scratches leaving my car looking new..."

Will My Car's Scratches Buff Out?

Our auto detailing technicians excel in car paint correction with their expertise and top-notch auto detail tools and equipment. Get in touch with us for an amazing result.

The Fingernail Test

The fingernail test can help determine the severity of scratches on your car's paint. Begin by selecting the worst of the scratches. Then run your fingernail over that scratch. If your fingernail easily glides over the scratch, it is likely a light or superficial defect that correction will remove. If your fingernail gets caught in the scratch, it may be a deeper scratch that requires more extensive repairs. The fingernail test is helpful but not definitive and should not be the sole determining factor. Instead, let us evaluate your vehicle to determine the best service option to repair the damage.

Our Paint Correction Process

Our 15-step procedure includes specialized techniques, products, and tools to ensure that every exterior detail meets our discerning standards. Depending on the level of repair requested, this may consist of some or all of the following steps.

1: Evaluate

We examine your car for swirl marks, deep scratches, and etching from bird droppings. Identifying the type of defect allows us to consult with you properly.

2: Estimate

We determine the most efficient approach by sectioning off a damaged area and restoring it. We then estimate the total work time and provide a quote.

3: Car Wash

We thoroughly wash your vehicle's exterior surfaces using a specialized soap to strip away any waxes and polishing oils. Our washing techniques avoid new damage to the paint job.

4: Clay

We use a detailing clay bar to remove wax residue and above-surface contaminants embedded in the paintwork, creating a smooth finish and preparing the surface for the next step.

5: Wheels

We clean wheel faces, lug nuts, outer barrels, and outer lips of brake dust residue. Then, we enhance their appearance by applying a synthetic spray wax that provides shine and protection.

6: Tires

We clean and degrease tires and wheel wells using a scrub brush and pressurized water, then finish with a water-based dressing for a clean, matte look.

7: Dry

We thoroughly dry your car with a professional air blower, as water interferes with the compounding and polishing process by diluting these defect removal products.

8: Mask

We protect edges and vulnerable areas using masking tape to prevent damage during the procedure. Masking allows us to focus on the intended paint surfaces.

9: Wet Sand*

*If necessary, we wet sand to remove severe surface imperfections that compounding can not. Our technicians are highly skilled, meticulous, and experienced.

10: Compound

We machine-compound the paint to remove surface scratches, oxidation, and swirl marks. Compounding requires skill and precision to avoid creating new damage to the car paint job.

11: Polish

We finalize your vehicle's painted surfaces to remove any haze left behind by compounding, significantly enhancing the paint's gloss, clarity, and depth.

12: Prep

We use special chemicals to remove compounding dust and polishing oils from our work. We may wash and dry the vehicle again if necessary.

13: Windows

We clean windows and mirrors perfectly by removing dirt, grime, grease, and film with professional-grade cleaners to achieve a streak-free, crystal-clear finish.

14: Protect

We recommend our graphene ceramic. Pro-grade coatings provide a durable layer of protection, enhanced gloss, and ease of maintenance to the newly corrected surfaces.

15: Inspect

We inspect your freshly paint-corrected car to ensure it meets our standards. This final detail confirms your vehicle's impeccable appearance, making it a source of pride.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee

Our Guarantee is simple. We want to provide you with great customer service and for you to be delighted with your car. If, for any reason, you are not, please let us know, and we will do everything we can to make it right.

Paint Correction FAQs

This is a process that removes imperfections from a car’s paint. These imperfections may include scratches, swirl marks, and oxidation. We use polisher machines and various grades of abrasive compounds and polishes. The goal is to revitalize the paint to its original factory finish.

A test spot is a small section of a vehicle’s paint that is corrected using the intended process, products, and tools before working on the entire car. It provides a preview of the expected results, allows us to assess the paint’s condition, and adjust the correction process as necessary.

The test spot also allows us to identify any excessive issues with the paint that may require additional attention. This step helps us determine the level of correction achievable, the necessary steps to reach the desired level of restoration, and the amount of time needed to finish the service.

Lastly, a test spot helps us find the least aggressive method to achieve the desired results while maintaining the thickness and integrity of the clear-coated paint. This process ensures the best possible results and minimizes the paint damage risk.

This is a process used to restore and enhance the appearance of a vehicle’s paintwork by removing imperfections such as swirl marks, scratches, oxidation, and other surface defects. It involves two main steps, each targeting different levels of paint imperfections.

The first step is compounding, which involves using an abrasive compound and a cutting or polishing pad on a dual-action or rotary polisher. The abrasive compound removes a thin layer of clear coat and surface imperfections. Compounding targets deeper scratches, swirl marks, and other more pronounced defects. The result is a more even, but still slightly hazy, finish. Compounding is more aggressive, so it’s essential to be cautious and not remove too much clear coat.

The second step in the process is polishing. Polishing involves using a light polish and a softer pad. This step focuses on refining the paint surface, removing any remaining haze or minor imperfections created during the compounding stage. Polishing enhances the gloss and depth of the paint, resulting in a smooth, swirl-free, and high-gloss finish.

After completing the two-step paint correction process, it is crucial to ensure proper paint protection, such as applying a sealant, wax, or ceramic coating, to maintain the paint’s appearance and protect it from future damage.

Wet sanding is a method that removes deeper surface imperfections that cannot be removed by compounding alone. It involves sanding clear-coated paint with wet sandpaper while keeping the surface damp to prevent further damage.

The process requires sandpaper of varying grits and a soapy solution to minimize friction. The result is a smoother surface that prepares it for the compounding and polishing stages. Very few vehicles require this step.

Our Graphene Ceramic Coating, other coatings, or paint protection film are an excellent way to protect the newly revitalized finish of your car. We include a sealant for protection as part of the service. Still, we highly recommend our graphene ceramic coatings, as they will preserve your newly paint-corrected car for up to 10 years.

Ceramic coatings are a highly effective way to protect your vehicle’s paint from environmental contaminants, UV rays, and light road debris, providing long-term protection for your investment. It also makes maintaining your car’s cleanliness easier, reducing the frequency of future correction work.

Installing a ceramic coating is a substantial upfront cost. Still, the durability of the coating is an intelligent investment in your vehicle’s long-term appearance and protection. As a courtesy, we offer promotional discounts when you purchase our graphene ceramic coating with any of our paint correction options.
