What to Consider for a Quality Paint Job

While a paint job looks great, having a quality paint job actually protects your car from grime, dirt, harsh weather, gravel damage, and those fun little dings in the parking lot that seem inevitable. When it’s time for your car to get a little facelift with a new auto paint job, there are a few things you should look out for. 

For one, it’s who you hire to apply your paint, the type of paint they use, and that you find someone with a steady and professional hand to ensure everything goes on smoothly and leaves you with a perfect finish. At Authentic Auto Body, we pride ourselves in our paint and collision repair services, so here are a few things you can expect and look for.

Auto Paint Job Checklist

First things first, it’s important to ensure your car has had all necessary body repairs taken care of prior to painting. Whether you have small dents or bigger dents from an accident, get these taken care of before your paint job. At Authentic Auto, we can handle any collision or bodywork you need, so schedule an appointment today. 

After your bodywork has been completed, here are the next steps you can expect for your paint job:

Paint Matching Your Vehicle 

Making sure the paint matches can be a challenging process, but we use computer-matched paint to make sure we find the perfect paint color. 

Taping Your Car

Preparation is key, and we use extra care to tape up your vehicle with extreme precision to ensure anything that doesn’t require paint is safe. 

Application Of The Paint

You have to have a steady hand when you are painting vehicles, and our experts are the best around. Your paint job will be smooth and have that crystalline finish that makes your car shine. 

Surface sealant 

A surface sealer is an important part of the process, and a sealer helps create a barrier for the new paint to cover your old paint. 

Customized Experience 

Each car requires a custom experience, and we work hard to ensure that each paint job is aligned with your needs, insurance, and other factors that create a better experience for you.

These are the basics for getting a quality paint job, but it also comes down to who you hire, the warranty they offer, and if they have a demonstrated reputation for quality auto care and paint. Whether you have had a collision and need a paint job or you want to freshen up your car’s look, we can help. We offer a full range of services to help your car look and run its best, and we have a long list of happy customers, and we would love to help you. Give us a call to schedule your service.
