Paint Correction & Polishing
Paint correction is a term professional detailers use to describe the removal of scratches, light scratches, swirl marks, water spots, holograms and the refinement of painted surfaces. Thus bringing the paint back to a defect free deep gloss finish. Luxury details achieves this by utilizing nano technology abrasives (compounds & polishes) combined with safe, modern and perfected buffing techniques. The combination of proper polishes, compounds, pads, pressure and speed of the buffer is what sets a true professional apart from your average detailer. This is were Luxury details delivers and produces results that are rare to come by. Paint correction and polishing is a tedious and time consuming job when done correctly and truly is a form of art. This process can also be very damaging when being done by someone that is not educated properly on thickness of paints, clear coats, pads, polishers and compounds. Luxury details offers a few different packages to meet different customer needs. Do you just want your paint to have that gloss and depth back to it? Or do you want as many imperfections out of the paint as possible? Either way, we have you covered.

Single-stage Paint Correction:
While this is our entry level paint correction/polishing service, great improvements can be achieved. There are a lot of variables that dictate the level of correction that can be achieved with a one step process. Due to different hardness of paints, and the starting condition of the paint are the main factors. Usually German brands tend to have hard paint, on these a one step process would normaly remove 30-65% of surface defects. Where on a vehicle with softer paint (Honda) possibly up to 75-80%. We assess the vehicle type and budget given, and from there use the correct approach to maximize the resuts.
