Expert paint correction by DPM Auto Pros

At DPM Auto Pros, paint correction is like giving your car a time machine ride back to its more beautiful days. It’s not just about making your car shiny, it’s about correcting those little imperfections that life on the road throws at it. Here’s what makes our service stand out.

First up, our team is made up of true professionals when it comes to paint correction. We assess each vehicle to make the best paint correction plan, targeting everything from swirl marks and scratches to etchings and oxidation that dull your car’s finish. Using only the best tools and products, we gently polish away the blemishes, restoring the paint to a state that’s often better than when it first rolled off the lot. 

But what really sets DPM Auto Pros apart is our attention to detail and the care we take with each car. We treat your vehicle like it’s our own, ensuring that when we’re done, it’s not just corrected, it’s transformed.

Choosing DPM Auto Pros for paint correction services and car detailing means saying goodbye to those annoying imperfections and hello to a beautiful finish that makes your car look brand new once more. It’s an investment in your car’s beauty and value, handled by pros who know exactly how to bring out the best in your ride. You may also want to consider getting a paint protection fIlm (PPF), since preventing a problem may cost you less in the long run.

Why is car paint correction necessary before ceramic coating?

Before you dress up your car with a ceramic coating, getting paint correction services beforehand is important. Here’s the lowdown on why car paint correction is a must-do before ceramic coating:

  1. Corrects Imperfections. Car paint correction is all about getting rid of those tiny nuisances on your car’s surface – we’re talking swirl marks, scratches, and etchings. It ensures your car’s paint is as smooth as glass.
  2. Enhances Shine and Clarity. This process brings back that showroom shine by restoring the paint’s original clarity and color depth. 
  3. Ensures Better Coating Adhesion. Ceramic coatings bond best with perfectly smooth surfaces. Auto paint correction ensures that the coating adheres evenly and effectively, maximizing protection and longevity.
  4. Longer Lasting Results. With a properly corrected surface, your ceramic coating won’t just look better, it’ll also last longer. 
  5. Increases Vehicle Value. A well-maintained, scratch-free, and glossy vehicle not only turns heads but also retains its value better over time. In case you’re tired of people turning heads in your direction – think of window tinting. A bit more of privacy never hurts, right?
  6. Costs. What about the car paint correction cost? Prices vary, but at DPM Auto Pros we are all about affordability. That’s why our vehicle paint correction starts at $149.

Skipping paint correction in Northbrook, IL before applying a ceramic coating is like painting over dirt on a wall – it might look okay from afar, but up close, the flaws will stand out. Ensuring your car’s paint is perfect before sealing it with a ceramic coating means you’ll see that reflective finish everyone desires, and your car gets the protection it deserves.

Frequently Asked Questions

The time required for paint correction can vary significantly depending on the vehicle’s size, the condition of the paint, and the level of correction desired. Typically, it can take anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days to complete a thorough paint correction process.

Paint correction has a lot of variables that make up its price. Generally the lightest paint corrections start at around $149 and go into the thousands for high level paint correction or if wet sanding is needed.

Paint correction can remove a significant amount of surface imperfections, including fine scratches and swirl marks. However, deep scratches that have penetrated the paint’s clear coat may require more intensive treatments, such as touch-up painting or panel replacement.

The frequency of paint correction depends on various factors, including how the vehicle is used, stored, and maintained. Typically, a full paint correction might only be necessary every few years if the vehicle is well-maintained. To keep the paint looking its best, regular maintenance and protective treatments are recommended.

When performed by experienced professionals, paint correction is a safe and effective way to enhance your vehicle’s appearance without damaging the paint. Our team uses the latest techniques and high-quality products to ensure the best results.

If there was something bad to say about this place I would but from my experience there they were nothing but excellent. The only somewhat annoying issue is that waze take you to the wrong place and it is tucked away so it is a bit tricky to find but they had the best quote for a ceramic coating and even extended a sale they quoted me even though it had just pasted when I came back to schedule, and for the work I will admit it is hard for me to compare since this was my first ceramic coating but the car looked even better than when I got it new. I will try to update this review as the coat ages and they do washes but from my experience so far I really don’t think they could’ve done a better job between pricing, availability, customer service, and the quality of their service. Overall if you’re looking to get your car detailed or get a ceramic coating come here for a quote before going anywhere else

David and his team did a great job with my car. Had a full detail and a ceramic coat installed. Car looked brand new when I picked it up. Got off marks I thought were permanent and would never come off. Could not be happier. He also had the best price around by far.

David of DPM Auto Pros has the best customer service a car enthusiasts can have. He sent me updates of the Ceramic Coating of my brand new Model Y performance. He even went above and beyond to install my accessories for free. The ceramic coat he used is the best in the industry and quality work too. Highly recommended!

After doing much research and getting quotes from various places in the Chicagoland area, I decided to go with DPM Auto Pros. I'm blown away by the professionalism and attention to detail that David and his team provided. I brought my Audi Q8 in for ceramic coating to include the complete wheel and brake calipers. I was provided updates with pictures and videos throughout the entire process. DPM exceeded my expectations when I went and picked up my vehicle. David provided me with a very fair price compared to some other outrageously priced companies. I would highly recommend DPM Auto Pros for your vehicle needs.

Let me tell you, these guys do great work. Have had the pleasure of working with David and his amazing crew to get all of my vehicles done at DPM Auto Pros. The experience is always amazing and comes at a unbeatable price. Have had all my vehicles ceramic coated, tuned, got aftermarket wheels, tinted, Glassparency treatments, and more. Since day one I have been a supporter and their work only seems to improve. Will be sending my other cars here and will be sending cars next door to Rays hand wash. The guys are truly amazing and I appreciate you working with me.
