The ultimate choice of paint protection from rock chips, scratches, and more.
The streets of Houstons are not kind to vehicles. Potholes, construction, and flying debris, there’s always a high chance something is going to hit your vehicle.
On top of that, you have people rubbing against your car in a parking lot, bird droppings, road tar, and so much more.
Want to protect your car’s paint from all of that? The best option is going to be paint protection film (PPF) or sometimes referred to as a clear bra.
PPF is a transparent film that is installed on the exterior of your vehicle. It’s flexible, durable, and does an amazing job at protecting your paint.
Are you interested in changing the color of your vehicle? Car wrapping may be the better option for you.
(will vary based on coverage. This process will assume a full vehicle coverage)
Clean the wheels, tires, and fender wells
Thorough hand wash of the paintwork and clean out the emblems, grille, and vents
Ensure the iron particles from your paint are removed via chemical decontamination
Next is to mechanically decontaminate the paint with a clay bar. We’ll go over the entire vehicle to make sure the surface is completely clean.
Using an air blower and microfiber towels, we’ll dry every surface of the vehicle.
Paint will be corrected and polished to remove swirls, then wiped down with isopropyl alcohol to remove any wax or polish residue
Using a soapy-water mix, a squeegee and heat gun, we’ll install the PPF and wrap the edges where possible
Before picking up your vehicle, we’ll inspect the panels and edges to make sure the PPF has been installed to our standards.
Price is based on size, condition, and the type of coverage you’d like on your vehicle. We can work with what you specifically want!
Ceramic coating is a great choice to add gloss and protection, but if you compare it to PPF, it’s a night and day difference. The PPF will be able to withstand rock chips, bird droppings, and other potential damages from impacting your paint work. A ceramic coating will add an intense gloss and hydrophobic properties but cannot stop a rock from damaging your paint.
If your main goal is to protect and preserve your paint, PPF is going to be the best option for your vehicle.
Ideally, you’d want to get PPF on your vehicle and then a ceramic coating applied on top. This will give you the ultimate form of protection while adding the highest form of gloss.
It depends on a few factors; the condition of the vehicle, the type of PPF, and the amount of coverage you want on your vehicle. It can range from $250 to $2,500 and more. For instance, getting your hood done versus the hood, front bumper, fenders, and roof are two completely different scenarios (and results in a completely different price).
It really comes down to personal preference! If you’d like to keep your paint in the best form that it can, then PPF will be the best option for you. Imagine you’re driving down the highway and rocks go flying to your vehicle. The only way to keep your vehicle protected from that is PPF. If you see the value in that, PPF is the way to go!
It can take between a few hours to a few days! I know that’s a wide range, but it really depends on your vehicle (a large truck versus a small sedan), the panels you want wrapped (the hood versus the whole vehicle), and the amount of prep work we have to do before the installation. If you solely want the hood done, that can take a few hours. If you want the entire vehicle wrapped, that can take a whole week.
