What Are The Different Levels of Paint Correction?

At The Detail Doc we want to provide you as much information as possible to help you make an educated buying decision. A commonly asked question we get is, "What are the differences in paint correction?" So we are addressing this question. Here is also a short video explaining the difference between a paint enhancement vs a correction is.

A paint enhancement is exactly that. We are still performing a level of polishing that removes a very thin layer of the clear coat. However, our goal here is to enhance the paint. We are simply following a process without chasing down defects or aiming for a certain amount of defect removal. We are using one pad and product combination with one pass to clean as much of the paint up as we can, but at the same time leave behind a great finish.

Here at The Detail Doc we also offer two stage or multistage paint corrections. This is where we get much more serious about the level of correction and defect removal we are aiming for. As the names implies there are more than one stage of polishing going on. Typically it is a heavy cutting step followed by a finishing step. For a multistage correction we will bust out the sandpaper and chase down scratches. There is a catch though, we don't recommend this level of correction for every vehicle or application. If the vehicle is daily driven and used for work, an enhancement is going to be a great choice. But if you have a weekend car, show car, or you absolutely love a defect free car then a more rigorous correction may be for you.

At The Detail Doc we want to be as transparent as possible. If you are ever looking for paint correction to be done make sure to ask your detailer a lot of questions. If they just throw, "yes we do paint correction," make sure to ask what level of correction they are doing. Ultimately the detailer should be asking you the majority of the questions and providing a solution for what fits you best. Make sure to research your detailer and more importantly find one you trust.

If you are interested in having paint correction done or have any further questions, feel free to contact The Detail Doc.
