What is Paint Correction?

Paint correction is the craft of creating the sharpest reflection possible without hiding or masking defects while removing the least amount of paint possible through the use of safe, modern and proper polishes and techniques. This service is what separates the true professionals from the rest, a skill set that is master by very few.

When Do I need Paint Correction?

The Ceramic Pro line of products is formulated by a qualified chemist with a high level of experience in the industrial protective coating field, Ceramic Pro has been specifically formulated for Automotive substrates and is always undergoing extensive testing for new and improved versions to take the coating industry to new levels.

The paintwork on a car is exposed to many environmental challenges on a daily basis, things like bird droppings, road grime, water spots, car wash tunnels, the use of poor detailing techniques and or products, etc. Unfortunately, all of these things can ruin the finish of a car and leave it looking dull, faded and with lots of swirls and scratches. The accumulation of these things will not only take away from your vehicle’s appearance but it will reduce the resale value of the car as well.

Don’t Let Others Polish Your Car

Dealerships, car washes and unskilled detailers are some of the people who offer paint correction or polishing. BUYER BEWARE!!!. This places are NOT qualified, properly trained and lack the necessary skills to perform such service. Many things can and will go wrong, such as: introduce swirl marks on your vehicle, burn paint on the edges, burn delicate plastic trim, cause premature clearcoat failure due to too much clear coat removal (many places use very harsh compounds to polish cars), just to mention a few. At First Impression we are constantly fixing work that was performed incorrectly by unskilled “detailers”, bodyshops and prep departments at dealerships. Avoid the risks and the hassle by coming to us.

When done professionaly, paint correction is entirely safe and it will not cause any damage to your paint

Choose Your Paint Correction Services

These are our most popular Paint Correction services.

Multiple Stage Paint Correction

When you step up to multi stage paint correction, you’re significantly improving the finish by removing all of the swirls, and all but the heaviest of scratches and defects. This process starts with a heavy compounding machine polishing stage to remove the worst defects, and then followed by a secondary polishing stage to refine the finish and improve the gloss and clarity. Due to the different paint types, condition, and size of vehicles, the rate for the Multi Stage Paint Correction varies, but we consult with each customer to provide a more precise quote. The paint type and condition also dictates the level of correction, but typically this service will get rid of 75-95% of all defects. Pretty close to that of a brand new car.

    Single Stage Paint Correction

    This level of paint correction utilizes just one stage of machine polishing. While not considered a “perfection detail” given the single stage process , a significant transformation in the condition of the paint can be achieved. We can usually remove 50-70% of swirls, and light defects on softer paints (like Lexus, Toyota), whereas on harder paints (like Mercedes Benz, BMW) this could be a 30-50%. There are different variables that can dictate just how much correction you can safely achieve in a single stage correction process.
