Why You Should Invest in a Ceramic Coating

It may be easy to understand why upgrading your car’s sound system or repairing the rip in your driver’s seat upholstery would be a good way to spend money, but there are other great ways to cover your car and your investment that may not be as common. Investing in a ceramic coating provides an extra layer of shine and protection and is a visible way to make your car look great. Pitt Stop can provide this great service with all the care and attention to detail we give to all of our customers.

What is a Ceramic Coating?

A ceramic coating is like a beefed up version of the wax you may receive on a more regular basis. By using a liquid polymer or quartz, you are guaranteed even more benefits of what your wax usually covers. Water will bead up and roll off the surface of your car, meaning less water spots and smudges on your clean vehicle. Additionally, while we cannot prevent dust, grime, and dirt from impacting your car, we can assure you that the ceramic coating will stop the microscopic damage that they cause.

Who Needs One?

Everyone could benefit from a ceramic coating unless you have had one from our team in the past year or so, even that being said, some ceramic coatings can last up to five years, depending on what we have used. New cars don’t frequently come with the extra protection of the coating and you will want your car to look “just drove off the lot” new for as long as it can. Cars that have been driven a little more can benefit from a ceramic coating as their owner is looking to extend the life of the paint job on the vehicle. Even older cars can benefit from a ceramic coating, although we may also recommend a deep clean, a clay bar treatment, or paint correction before applying this seal.

How Do I Schedule Mine?

Any time of year is a great time to get a ceramic coating applied. Our area gets a fair amount of sun and a ceramic coating will protect your paint from harmful UV rays. It could be nice to have your car in tip top shape before the holidays and you look to visit family, friends, and loved ones. By calling our team, we will discuss what your needs are and when we can schedule a time for you to leave your vehicle. We can help make sure your day is disrupted as little as possible and will take care of your car, truck, or SUV while it is left in our hands. If you are looking for a full detail, so the inside gleams as well, we can take care of that while we are working on the outside.

To schedule your vehicle for a ceramic coating or to gift one to your favorite person, call Pitt Stop Auto today. We have a variety of services we can provide for you and will treat your car like it is one of our own. Rely on our expertise and care so your car will come looking out like new.
