Car & Truck Ceramic Coating

Why get a Ceramic Coating applied to your vehicle's paint?


Ceramic Coatings provide the highest level of gloss along with the longest lasting protection currently available today. Ceramic Coatings keep that “New Paint Job” look for years. A Ceramic Coating also means you will never have to wax your vehicle again! With the self-cleaning properties, not only will your vehicle stay cleaner much longer, it makes the maintenance and cleaning of your vehicle much easier due to Ceramic’s hydrophobic properties. Cleaning your vehicle after Ceramic Coating is installed is as simple as rinsing with hose pressure water. Another huge plus is the hardness of the coating that minimizes the risk of scratching or marring your vehicle’s paint.

Due to the strength of the coating, a ceramic coating offers extreme resistance from environmental impacts from chemicals, both high and low on the PH spectrum. A Ceramic Coating protects against bird droppings, tree sap, UV rays, harsh cleaning chemicals, overspray, and more. A Ceramic Coating’s strong UV protection blocks nearly all of the UV spectrum from reaching your vehicle’s clear coat. Due to this protection, your vehicle’s paint will retain that rich and shiny gloss for years. A Ceramic Coating truly lasts for years as it bonds to your vehicle’s paint at the molecular level giving you long lasting protection!

Tired of Getting Your Car Detailed Every Three Months to Keep The Shine?

A ceramic coating gives extended protection, far better than wax. It protects your vehicle from the Sun’s Harmful UV Rays that eat away at the clear coat, Bug Damage, & Scratches. Protect your investment now, rather than wait, and be stuck with a huge bill from the body shop.

Ceramic Coating Application Process

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. That being

said, we strive to get the vehicle’s paint back to as new as possible. Upon completion of the cutting compound, we follow it up with a finishing polish to give the vehicle’s paint that final pop and shine. An alcohol wash is the last step before coating, to ensure all compounds and waxes are completely clear from the pores of the clear coat. This essentially guarantees a strong bond.

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 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. Don’t need the interior detailed? No worries, just let us know, and we can mitigate some costs from the package.
