Frequently Asked Paint Correction Questions

Discover our detailing techniques, advantages, and unique features. Obtain all the details you need to maintain the pristine condition of your car and boat detailing.

How is paint correction different from waxing?

Waxing adds a protective layer on top of the paint to enhance its shine and protect it from environmental elements. Paint correction, however, removes imperfections from the paint itself, improving the surface quality before any protective layers like wax or sealants are applied.

How long does paint correction last?

The results can last for several years, depending on factors like the vehicle's maintenance routine, storage conditions, and how frequently it is washed and exposed to the elements. Regular maintenance and protection can extend the lifespan of a paint correction job.

Can paint correction remove all scratches?

Paint correction can remove many surface scratches and imperfections that haven’t penetrated through the paint's clear coat. Deeper scratches that reach the base coat or primer might not be fully correctable without repainting.


How much does paint correction cost?

Costs can vary widely depending on the vehicle's size, the condition of its paint, and the level of correction required. Prices might range from $300 to $3000. Getting a quote from a professional is the best way to understand the potential costs.

How do I maintain my paint after correction?

Regular washing with a gentle, pH-neutral soap, avoiding automatic car washes, applying a wax or sealant regularly, and storing the vehicle in a garage or under a cover can help maintain the corrected paint.

an I perform paint correction myself?

While DIY kits are available, paint correction requires skill, experience, and the right tools to avoid further damage to the paint. It's generally recommended to have it done professionally for the best results.
