WHAT IS PAINT CORRECTION?

Paint correction is a term commonly used to describe the process of restoring and rejuvenating the paintwork of a vehicle, mostly through the elimination of surface imperfections, that dull, oxidize, or haze the surface. These imperfections include things like swirl marks, scratches, bird dropping etching, acid rain etching, holograms, buffer trails, and random isolated deep scratches.

Proper paint correction is done by 'leveling' the surface rather than temporarily covering up defects with filler-based products. K5 Detail, of course, uses only professional and effective methods and products to correct your vehicles paint.

Our paint correction services start off with a thorough and safe decontamination of your vehicles paint using a strip wash, iron & fall-out removal, and clay bar treatment. This must be performed to properly correct your vehicles paint and will always be included in your 'out-the door' price.

Some scratches or imperfections may be too deep or severe to safely remove without risking removing too much surface paint or clear coat. When this is the case we diligently work to minimize and reduce the appearance of the defect.

The actual correction process requires the use of a buffing machine (type varies by vehicle paint and severity of defects), polishing pads, and abrasive compounds and/or polishes. In some cases wet-sanding may be required to achieve the desired results. 

After the correction process is completed, and we're satisfied with the results, a second hand-wash and hand-dry will be performed to remove any residue or dust from the correction process. We highly recommend protecting your now beautiful paint! We offer a wide range of paint sealants from traditional waxes, synthetic waxes, and ceramic coatings. Click here to learn more.
