Boulder Paint Correction

Paint correction is the process of removing minor scratches and imperfections found in the vehicles clear coat. Using an electric polisher, a microfiber buffing pad, and a special "cutting" compound (extremely fine abrasive), the detailer will "cut" into the clear coat of a vehicle’s paint till the scratches are leveled or removed.

Boulder Paint Correction

Paint Correction, also referred to as Polishing, involves using a series of very fine abrasive compounds to remove minor scratches and imperfections in your cars clear coat.

Paint Correction Before

These fine scratches in your paints clear coat are responsible for the notorious "swirls" you see when sunlight reflects off your vehicle. These "swirls" are not actually circular scratches, but rather, they are just random scratches that appear as almost holographic swirls when reflecting a point source of light such as the sun, or as seen here, the shop lights.

Paint Correction After

This process also naturally removes all of the oxidation on the surface of your clear coat that dulls the exterior of your vehicle. Depending on the degree of damage, we may have to start with a more aggressive compound to "cut" deeper into the clear coat (sometimes even using fine sand paper), and follow up with another one of two finer "cuts" to restore the gloss of your clear coat.

The result is a gloss and shine that in many cases exceeds the one you remember when your vehicle came off the factory floor (see the before and after pictures below). In fact, many of our customers bring their brand-new vehicles in for a Polish to remove any minor imperfections from the factory prior to receiving a ceramic coating. If you are considering a ceramic coating for your older vehicle, it is wise to consider a paint correction prior to doing so.

I wanted to sell my car and took it to The Works to get it cleaned up for sale. It looked amazing and I quickly sold the car for full asking price. If I ever buy a used car again the first place I will go is The Works to make it feel brand new and just like mine. Thank you!

I cannot rave enough about this place. They were able to get rid of dog hair trapped in places that I wasn't able to get to (and I have all the fancy Miele vacuum heads specific for this kind of detailing.) The guy were friendly, efficient, helpful, and I didn't feel like I was being up sold. Yes, it's expensive, but given the quality of their...

The ceramic tint could not have been more perfect. Leo did an amazing job, he pays a lot of attention to detail, and does not rush. He’s very honest and will guide you in the right direction for whatever you desire! I highly recommend The Works for tint, you will not be disappointed!!
