Our ceramic coating service provides extreme paint protection, deep gloss shine and hydrophobic properties for your vehicle.
Ceramic protective coating, also sometimes called nano ceramic coating, is a permanent or semi-permanent solution to your worries depending upon the coating and type of polymer used. Due to its chemically intrinsic properties, it does not break down in normal atmospheric conditions like rain or summer.
We will start off with a pressure wash & foam bath, ensuring that we remove all loose dirt and grime from all your painted services. Then, we follow up with a detailed hand wash. Next, all painted services will be clayed to remove all impurities from the paint, prepping the paint to be compounded and polished.
After the clay bar, we compound, buff, and polish the clear coat with a fine cutting compound and a Dual Action buffer. We want the paint to look perfect before we seal it in with an extended protection coating. Once the vehicle’s paint is clean and smooth, we remove any scratches and swirl marks that are visible. In some cases, scratches that are too deep can’t be removed unless the vehicle gets repainted or wet sanded. However, when we are done, they will be far less visible.
Now it’s time to apply the Ceramic Coating. This process is very tedious, which we make sure and take our time to ensure we cover all areas evenly without high spots. The coatings we use last anywhere from 3-5 years depending on the package you select. The 5 year package has extra coats of ceramic, ensuring a much longer lasting finish.
As an added bonus, a full interior detail is included with all of our Car & Truck Ceramic Pro Coating Packages. The interior detail includes each crack, crevice, and compartment is blown out and vacuumed including the trunk! All rubber, vinyl, and leather areas are cleaned and conditioned. Finally, the windows and rear view mirror are cleaned, as well as the door handles & door jambs.
