PAINT CORRECTION FAQ'S
What is paint correction?
Paint correction is a meticulous process that involves restoring and rejuvenating the paintwork of a vehicle. It aims to remove imperfections such as scratches, swirl marks, water spots, and oxidation, resulting in a flawless and glossy finish.
Paint correction is necessary to enhance the overall appearance of your vehicle’s paint. The paint can develop various imperfections due to factors like environmental pollutants, improper washing techniques, and regular wear and tear. Paint correction restores the paint to its original glory, improving its clarity, depth, and shine.
Paint correction is a multi-step process that involves careful assessment, machine polishing, and refinement. Skilled technicians use specialized abrasive compounds, polishers, and pads to remove a thin layer of clear coat and eliminate imperfections. This process smooths out the surface, corrects defects, and enhances the paint’s gloss and clarity.
Paint correction can effectively address a range of imperfections, including swirl marks, light to moderate scratches, holograms, oxidation, water spots, bird droppings etching, and other minor paint defects. It helps to restore the paint’s smoothness and eliminates blemishes.
The duration of a paint correction process depends on the condition of the vehicle’s paint and the extent of correction required. It can take anywhere from several hours to a couple of days. Our expert technicians will assess your vehicle and provide an estimate of the timeframe based on its specific needs.
Yes, paint correction, when performed by skilled and trained professionals, is safe for your vehicle’s paint. Our technicians utilize industry-leading techniques, tools, and products to ensure the highest level of safety during the correction process. It’s important to note that excessive or improper paint correction can potentially damage the paint, which is why it’s crucial to rely on experienced professionals.
Yes, paint correction is designed to address various types of scratches. By carefully removing a thin layer of clear coat, our technicians can effectively minimize and, in some cases, eliminate light to moderate scratches. Deep or severe scratches that penetrate the paint layers may require additional treatments like touch-up paint or professional refinishing.
Absolutely! Paint correction is particularly effective in eliminating swirl marks, which are commonly caused by improper washing techniques or automatic car washes. Through meticulous machine polishing, our technicians can level out the paint’s surface, effectively removing swirl marks and restoring a smooth, swirl-free finish.
Paint correction and traditional car waxing are two distinct processes that address different aspects of your vehicle’s paint. Traditional car waxing involves applying a protective layer of wax to the paint surface, which enhances the shine and provides temporary protection against environmental elements. On the other hand, paint correction is a more comprehensive process aimed at restoring the paint’s clarity and removing imperfections such as swirl marks, scratches, and oxidation. It involves the use of specialized tools and techniques to level the paint surface, resulting in a smoother and more reflective finish.
Yes, paint correction can effectively remove water spots from your vehicle’s paint surface. Water spots are often caused by mineral deposits left behind after water evaporates, and they can mar the appearance of your paint. Through the meticulous process of paint correction, these water spots can be carefully addressed and eliminated, restoring the clarity and smoothness of the paint.
While paint correction can significantly improve the appearance of your vehicle’s paint, it may not necessarily make it look brand new. Paint correction focuses on removing imperfections such as swirl marks, scratches, and other surface defects to restore the paint’s clarity and smoothness. It cannot reverse deep scratches or damage that has penetrated the clear coat or base layers. Nonetheless, paint correction can achieve a remarkable transformation, making your vehicle’s paint look significantly rejuvenated and more appealing.
Yes, paint correction can indeed enhance the resale value of your car. A well-maintained and visually appealing paint finish is a crucial factor that potential buyers consider when evaluating a used vehicle. By undergoing paint correction, you can remove or minimize imperfections that may detract from the overall appearance, giving your car a more polished and well-cared-for look. This can positively impact the perceived value of your vehicle, making it more desirable in the eyes of prospective buyers.
Paint correction is a highly skilled and meticulous process that requires expertise, specialized tools, and knowledge of different paint types and correction techniques. While there are DIY products available, achieving professional-grade results can be challenging for an inexperienced individual. Hiring a professional paint correction specialist is recommended to ensure the best possible outcome. They have the necessary training, experience, and equipment to assess your vehicle’s paint condition accurately and perform the correction process safely and effectively.
The frequency of paint correction depends on various factors, including your vehicle’s paint condition, usage, and maintenance routine. It is not necessary to undergo paint correction frequently unless your paint develops noticeable imperfections or signs of deterioration. Regularly washing and maintaining your vehicle’s paint with appropriate techniques and products can help prolong the need for paint correction. If you desire to maintain an impeccable and flawless paint finish, periodic paint correction sessions every 1-2 years may be beneficial.
Yes, paint correction is an effective method for removing oxidation from the paint surface. Oxidation occurs over time due to exposure to sunlight, environmental pollutants, and other factors, resulting in a dull and faded appearance. By carefully removing the oxidized layer of paint through paint correction, the underlying vibrant paint color can be restored. The extent of the oxidation and the condition of the paint will determine the level of correction required, but professional paint correction can significantly improve the look of oxidized paint.
Paint correction can help address paint transfer from other objects to some extent, depending on the severity and depth of the transfer. Paint transfer usually occurs when another object, such as a car or a wall, comes into contact with your vehicle’s paint and leaves behind a layer of transferred paint. With the appropriate techniques and products, paint correction specialists can often minimize or eliminate paint transfer marks, restoring the affected area to its original appearance. Deep or heavily transferred paint may require additional touch-ups or repairs beyond paint correction.
The difference between a one-step and a multi-step paint correction lies in the level of correction and refinement performed on the paint surface. A one-step paint correction typically involves a single polishing step to remove light to moderate imperfections and restore the gloss and clarity of the paint. It is a more efficient and cost-effective option when dealing with relatively minor paint issues.
A multi-step paint correction involves multiple polishing stages, each utilizing different abrasive compounds and pads to address a range of imperfections systematically. This method is suitable for heavily damaged or neglected paint, as it allows for more comprehensive correction and refinement. Multi-step paint correction achieves a higher level of perfection and is recommended for vehicles with severe swirl marks, deep scratches, or heavily oxidized paint.
Both approaches have their merits and are tailored to specific paint conditions, so it is advisable to consult with a professional to determine the most appropriate paint correction process for your vehicle.

Our experts can assess the specific stains on your vehicle and recommend the best course of action to achieve the desired results.

CERAMIC COATING FAQ'S
What is the ceramic coating?
Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that is applied to the exterior surfaces of vehicles to provide long-lasting protection and enhance their appearance. It creates a transparent, protective layer that bonds with the paintwork, forming a durable shield against various environmental contaminants.

At Shine On Automotive Detailing & Ceramic Coatings, we cater to a wide range of vehicles, including cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, boats, and more. Our skilled technicians have experience working on various vehicle makes and models, from everyday vehicles to luxury and exotic cars. We strive to accommodate the detailing and ceramic coating needs of all our customers, regardless of the type of vehicle they own.
We understand the importance of trust and take the utmost care when handling customers’ vehicles. While incidents of damage or theft are extremely rare, we have a comprehensive policy in place to address such situations. In the unlikely event that any items are damaged or stolen during our service, we will take full responsibility and work with the customer to rectify the situation, whether it involves repairing or replacing the damaged item.
While we strive to provide accurate estimates for our services, it is difficult to provide an exact quote without assessing the vehicle’s condition in person. Each vehicle is unique, and factors such as size, condition, and the customer’s specific requirements can affect the pricing. We recommend scheduling an appointment or visiting our facility for a detailed evaluation. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to provide you with an accurate estimate once we have assessed your vehicle’s needs.
Before scheduling an appointment, it is important to note that our services are in high demand, and availability may vary. We recommend contacting us in advance to secure a suitable appointment time. We advise customers to remove any valuable or personal items from their vehicles before bringing them in for detailing or ceramic coating. While we take every precaution to ensure the safety of your belongings, it is always best to minimize any potential risks.
