Paint Correction at Autostyle

Paint correction is the process of restoring a car’s paint to its original condition. It involves polishing and refining the paint to remove swirl marks, oxidation, and other imperfections. The result is a smooth, glossy finish that looks like new. Paint correction can also improve the overall appearance of a car by making it look more vibrant and attractive. Paint correction is an important part of car maintenance as it helps to protect your vehicle from further damage. By removing any existing imperfections in the paintwork, you can ensure that your car looks its best for years to come. With careful attention to detail, paint correction can help restore your car’s original shine and beauty.

Paint correction can be simply described as enhancing the cars paintwork, reducing and removing unsightly defects, swirls, scratches through a series of stages and professional techniques.

A single stage of correction is for vehicles requiring the least amount of polishing to remove defects. A dual stage correction requires two stages of corrective work, starting off with a cutting compound to reduce heavier defects and finishing on softer refining polishes resulting in beautiful paintwork.

The scuffs, swirls, and scratches that we remove during the paint correction process are permanently gone. However, it is absolutely still possible to damage your paint again. That’s why we recommend having your car professionally detailed on a regular basis and even consider getting a ceramic coating so you can enjoy a beautiful-looking car for even longer.

Paint correction is a service that is used to repair small scratches, swirling, flaws, or damage on your vehicle’s exterior. The damage can be caused by a number of factors, including excessive weather exposure, lack of paint protection, or normal vehicle usage. 

Paint protection is the practice of utilising a range of products and materials as preventative tools, including sealant, wax, and ceramic coating to preserve one’s vehicle life span.
