  • What is Paintless Dent Repair? (PDR)
    Paintless Dent Repair is the process of removing dents from vehicles without the use of paint. PDR is the insurance-preferred method for hail damage repairs as it maintains the vehicle's factory original paint and doesn't include any bondo or filler. PDR can also be utilized in the repair and removal of door dings and other complex dents depending on factors such as size, location, and accessibility.

  • What is Ceramic Coating?
    Ceramic coating is a special kind of liquid that you can put on your car or other vehicles to help protect the paint and make it look really shiny. It is a very tough and strong shield that helps to prevent scratches and damage from things like the sun, rain, and dirt. When you apply ceramic coating, it forms a hard layer that makes your car look extra glossy and cool. It's like putting on a super-powered suit of armor for your car!
  • What is Paint Correction?
    Paint Correction is the first step to a professional ceramic application. Automotive paint correction is the process of fixing the surface of a car's paint job to make it look shiny and new again. Over time, a car's paint can get scratches, swirl marks, or other imperfections, which can make the car look dull or less attractive. To correct the paint, a professional uses special tools and techniques to remove a very thin layer of the car's paint. This removes the imperfections on the surface and reveals a fresh, shiny layer of paint underneath. After the correction process, the car's paint will look smooth, shiny, and free of any scratches or marks. Paint correction can be a great way to restore the look of a car and make it look like new again. It's important to note that paint correction is a very precise and technical process, and should only be done by a professional with the right training and experience.
  • How Long Does a Ceramic Application Take?
    Our turnaround time for ceramic application is usually around 36 hours. For example, if you drop off your vehicle on a Thursday morning, it would be ready to pick up Friday at the end of the day! As an extra bonus, all of our customers have the option to use one of our courtesy vehicles. We don't want anyone put out with scheduling and a means of transportation while their vehicle is at our shop!
  • How Much Does Ceramic Coating Cost?
    Our premium ceramic coatings start at $1,500 for a 3 year application and $2,000 for a 4 year application. Prices vary depending on the size of the vehicle. All ceramic coatings include a 3 stage paint correction to ensure the best possible application.
