Frequently asked questions about Ceramic Coatings and Detailing
What is the process to detail a car?
We look at your vehicle and determine what process and products will be required to provide the highest level of gloss.
For cars: we begin the induction process by washing the vehicle with a wax remover, then we clay bar the paint. We wash the vehicle again and blow the water off of the vehicle with a blower, then pull the vehicle into our facility for polishing. We use several types of compounds and polishes under corrected lighting to remove scratches and swirl marks. If we are applying ceramic, we wipe the car with vehicle safe cleaners to remove any oil and finger prints. We are constantly refining the finish to be as perfect as possible before we apply the ceramic. After the ceramic is applied, we level and and review each section as we go for the most perfect application under our high intensity lighting. The vehicle stays in our secure facility overnight and is rechecked before delivery to you.
Do you offer ceramic coatings?
Yes we do. We offer vehicle and marine grade ceramic from Ceramic Pro. Coating your vehicle or boat in ceramic requires our five step process. When it is applied, your vehicle or boat will have a "candy-like" finish that will last for years. We offer 6 month, 2 year, 5 year, and lifetime finishes.
I had my boat detailed by another company several months ago and the oxidation returned, why did this happen?
Unfortunately, many companies send their detailers out without first discussing your boat. Those detailers show up and use "cleaner waxes" on your boat which does nothing to remove oxidation, it simply penetrates with the carnuba wax and petrolium. After a few weeks, the sun and heat deteriates the wax and the oxidation returns.
We offer several packages. If your boat does not need oxidation removal, we can wash and wax. However, we often find boats need our two or three step process wihich requires compounding, or possible wet sanding following by sealants.
We offer waxes, sealants,, and Ceramic finishes.
