To many drivers, a car paint repair is seen as a complete refinishing covering multiple panels of a vehicle. The desired result is having a finish looking as if it just came out of the factory. And, in many cases that is exactly what is done, especially when the repair is done in a body shop.
The reality is the finish your car has when delivered had better be preserved in a photo, because there is a chance it will never quite look like that again in Madison WI.
Types of Car Paint Repair
The perfect paint repair for a vehicle has a different definition depending on the owner.
The equation for a perfect repair is as follows – Owner’s circumstance + a chosen type of repair = perfect repair. This differs from a single, insurance driven body shop repair. At AutoColor the definition of a proper car paint repair is up to the vehicle owner.
Car paint repair options available for car owners depend on the amount of damage and how the damage was incurred. The list below shows the most common types of car paint repair and how the damage generally occurs –
Touch up – Most of the time, stone chips from roads account for chipped paint or occasionally from doors in parking lots.
Scratch Reduction – Key marks around door handles, scratches from parking lots – people bumping into your car with bags or boxes, zippers and other clothing related accessories cause most scratches.
Spot Blending Paint – is scuffed or scratched so the finish is “broken”. Damage is on one panel of the vehicle and only partial refinishing is required. This refinishing is usually within one panel of the car. Most likely a body shop will shy away from a repair like this because it is too small. AutoColor excels at these car paint repairs.
Traditional Refinishing – Can be a larger area damaged needing restructuring or replacement. The repair area involves one or multiple panels where the complete panel is refinished which is often the repair of choice at a body shop – which can be done more economically at AutoColor.
