Body Shop Lafayette
If you are filing an insurance claim for your repair work, we can help you with all of the details that come with it. We can coordinate all of the repair work with every major insurance company. Before any repairs are performed, we will provide you with a detailed repair plan specific to your vehicle.
We are conscious that cost is a big factor, especially in the instances when you are paying for the repairs yourself. The professionals at Maaco will review your initial repair plan and recommend options that will help save you money. Regardless of cost, we will make sure no sacrifices are made in regards to structure or safety of the repair.
At Maaco of Lafayette, we know that you are conscious of the cost. Therefore we offer three price levels when it comes to replacement parts. OEM parts are the highest in cost, but come from the original manufacturer of your vehicle, meaning they ultimately provide the best match for your vehicle.
A more cost effective option is Aftermarket. While new, these parts might not necessarily come from your vehicle's manufacturer. Recycled parts are the most cost-efficient. They come from vehicles no longer considered 'road-ready' but still adhere to safety and function standards. So if parts replacement is necessary, three options provide flexibility to help you proceed with confidence.
A simple touch up can be all you need to turn the car you drive back into the car you love. If your vehicle only needs one or two panels painted, the best and least expensive option can be spot painting.
We'll perform a full vehicle inspection, target the areas in need of a touch up and make sure surrounding areas are cleaned and sanded so that the paint application is flawless. We also use a multiple masking procedure to make sure the new and old paint blend seamlessly.
Removal vs. Mask
Dust. Lint. Dirt. At Maaco of Lafayette, our commitment to perfection in your repair job means we never let such imperfections stand in the way. As part of the spot painting process to your repair job comes our standard finishing work. It is our quality procedure that helps sand, buff and polish away those little imperfections.
It starts with wet sanding, spread evenly over the area and then smoothed out. Next we carefully buff the area using a liquid compound. Then it's onto the polishing, a critical step in restoring that shine to your paint and clear coat and getting that damaged area looking good as new.
It's with our finishing process that your spot painting process is truly finished... and perfect.
