About Paint Correction

Paint correction is the process of removing imperfections in a vehicle, such as swirl marks, scratches, and oxidation, through abrasive polishing and buffing. The goal is to unveil a flawless and glossy surface, bringing back the original luster of the paint.

Our paint correction process not only enhances the vehicle’s visual appeal but also prepares the surface for subsequent protective treatments like waxing or ceramic coating.

About Paint Correction

What Causes Swirl Marks on Car Paint?

Swirl marks are micro-scratches that appear on the surface of a car’s paintwork. They are caused by improper washing and detailing techniques, such as using dirty or abrasive materials, dry wiping, or harsh automatic car washes, leading to fine scratches on the car’s paint surface. To prevent swirl marks, you should adopt gentle washing practices, use high-quality cleaning tools, and be cautious during detailing processes.

Benefits of Paint Correction

Enhanced Appearance

Paint correction removes swirls, scratches, and imperfections, revealing the deep, vibrant shine hidden beneath. It's like giving your car a facelift, restoring its original shine, and turning heads wherever you go.


Compared to a full repaint, paint correction is a fraction of the price while delivering similar results. It's like a targeted upgrade, focusing on specific areas that need attention instead of replacing everything. This makes it a budget-friendly way to improve your car's appearance significantly.

Boost Resale Value
