Frequently asked questions

Why should I detail my car?

image31

Your car accumulates numerous particles that can harm the finish. Pollutants, mud, salt, dirt, sand, bugs, tar, rain, sun, etc. are extremely harmful to the paint. 

Detailing leaves microscopic layers of fine wax particles that provide a deep shine and forming a clear chemical bond that protects the paint and its original clear coat.

Detailing guarantees longevity to the paint and retains the value of the vehicle. 

Professional detailing is not just a luxury, it is an investment that has become a necessity​


How often do I need to wax or polish my car?

image32

It depends on the environmental elements your car typically endures. If your vehicle is kept garaged on a daily basis, then a polish or wax can last as long as four to six months.

As a general rule of thumb, we recommend that a light colored car be polished and waxed at least every two to three months. 

Dark colored cars on the other hand, will usually require more frequent and specialized attention.


How often should I wash my car?

image33

As often as practical. 

Most enthusiasts wash their vehicles at least once a week. Some folks wash their cars almost every day. 

Washing your car frequently DOES NOT ruin the paint when it is done using the correct products and techniques.


What is paint correction?

Also known as swirl mark removal or machine polishing, paint correction is the reduction or removal of marks in the top layer of paint to produce a more refined finish.

Paint correction can involve either the hand or machine application of varying grades of cleanser, polish or compound. The majority of work is usually done with rotary machine polishers to get the best level of correction.

Good paint correction requires a high degree of skill and concentration, but done properly, it really can transform the look of a car by dealing with (amongst other things); hard water marks, etching caused by bird droppings or insects, swirl marks, scratches and fading.​​

FAQs on Ceramic Coatings

image36

What is a Ceramic Coating?

The easiest way is to understand Ceramic Coatings are to think of them as a second layer of skin, or a sacrificial layer of protection over your car’s clearcoat.

They utilize nanotechnology, which are essentially tiny particles that form a very fine, thin layer completely invisible to the eye. Because these particles are so small, when applied to a surface, they seal all the pores making the surface hydrophobic (water-repellent), but also resistant to UV, scratches, chemicals, extreme heat and even anti-graffiti. This ceramic layer is completely transparent.

What Does a Nano Ceramic Coating Do?

Ceramic coatings are:

  • Hydrophobic
    Otherwise known as being very water repellent. Rain and water bead as opposed to accumulating on the surface. This incredible hydrophobic effect of the coating will cause water to bead up and roll of the surface along with most dirt, grime, or mud (as it has all been unable to bond to your vehicle’s paint)
  • Protection from UV Damage / Oxidization / Rust
    Vehicles often exposed to the sun will start seeing the paint fade and look dull. This is caused by the sun’s ultraviolet sunrays, which causes oxidation to the car’s paint. By adding a layer of Ceramic Coating to your paint, you can dramatically reduce the oxidation.
  • Improved Durability
    Ceramic coatings works much harder at protecting the surface of your vehicle than an ordinary paint job. The new coating bonds with the molecular structure of your car’s paint and can’t be dislodged by vibrations or external force, meaning it lasts years not months. As mentioned earlier in the article, think of it as an added layer of skin on top of your paint.  

Pros and Cons of Ceramic Coatings

Advantages

  • Relatively easy to apply nano ceramics
  • Extremely cost effective paint protection
  • Very visible results

Cons

  • Takes effort to properly prepare a car if paint surface is poor
  • Some companies exaggerating benefits

Ceramic Coating Myths

  • Myth 1: Ceramic Car Coatings Are Scratch Proof

Small scratches can definitely be resisted by a Ceramic Coating and the sacrificial layer the car coating forms will certainly help against minor incidents that would otherwise mar your surface. For examples, driving through brush

  • Myth 2: Nano Coatings for your Car Don’t Require Maintenance

A coating will heavily cut down on the amount of washing and maintenance but not completely eliminate the need for it. The fact is if you are going to drive your car, the road is dirty and the surface is going to gradually get dirtier even with a ceramic coating.

It will still require washing, just with a lot less effort and less frequency. Additionally, it eliminates the need for waxing every few weeks, saving a lot of money over the course of the ceramic coatings lifetime.

  • Myth 3: Car Coatings Are Permanent

Partly, this is true. The nano ceramic coating is actually semi-permanent, as to it bonds with the car surface and cures into a hard and shiny sacrificial layer. 

With a good product and proper application, it should last at least 2 years, however, it is definitely not permanent.

  • Myth 4: They Are Really Easy to Apply

This is actually relatively true. With the new DIY kits becoming available to consumers, the actual application process is relatively easy.

That said, it’s not necessarily simple. Before you can even apply the coating, the surface has to be free of surface blemishes, which applies to even brand new vehicles. The process really depends on the condition of the surface. As the ceramic coating will semi-permanently add a layer over your vehicle’s paint, it’s crucial to do any paint restoration before applying the car coating. It’s up to you to decide, but we do recommend washing the car, claying, buffing, and keeping it pristine prior to applying the coating.

  • Myth 5: Ceramic Coatings Provide More Gloss Than Sealants And Waxes

Not necessarily. The truth is the nano coating for cars doesn’t provide the gloss alone – the prep work done underneath is also crucial. If you have a very faded paint and apply a coating to your car, it will still be faded, with a little bit of shine on top. The same applies for haze or swirl marks, they’ll also be “locked” under the coating if they’re not removed first.

Is it worth it to ceramic coat your car?

Yes, absolutely! for most cars. The marginal investment makes a ceramic car coating well worth purchasing. The upfront cost will pay for itself in savings. A professional application is critical to proper prep and desired results. Especially if you have a high end or show vehicle. 


The important thing is to not expect a magic product that forms a bulletproof force field of protection around your car. What it does do is keep your car looking like its been recently waxed for years, makes dirt fall off super easy, and does a better job of protecting your paint than any wax or sealant.
