What’s the difference between a wax and paint correction?

Historically, wax was the top shelf choice to enhance your vehicle’s shine while also protecting your paint from environmental elements like rain, bird poo, bug guts, dirt, etc…

Fast forward 20 years, scientists work their magic, and we now have an unmatched alternative for paint protection: ceramic coatings.

As a brief analogy: The wax is like a tent protecting you in a forest. The ceramic coating is like a brick house in the forest. Both can get the job done but one is nowhere near like the other in strength, durability and gloss.

How long does the service take to complete?

It all depends on the condition of the vehicle at hand. Generally speaking, it can take between 4 to 8 hours. We’ve worked on coupes that’s taken 8 hours due to the vehicle being extremely swirled. On the other hand, we’ve completed an SUV in 4 hours since it was in an average condition. Furthermore, multiple stage paint corrections may take up to 1 or 2 days to complete as the prep and workload is quite intensive.

How long do the results last?

This answer depends on how you maintain and care for your vehicle after the paint correction. After the paint is buffed, if you take it through a quick machine or gas station car wash, you can easily get back to the swirled condition in a matter of weeks. However, if you properly wash and dry your vehicle, the results will stay for a much longer period of time.

After the paint is polished, the next step is proper maintenance. You have to routinely wash and dry your vehicle with proper techniques moving forward to maintain the swirl-free finish of your paint. If not, you’re back to a swirl disaster on your vehicle
