Step 1 - Body Repair
Concerned about dents or scratches that are diminishing the appearance of your vehicle's paint job?
No need to worry! Our body repair technicians can perform a complete MAACOVER to eliminate any imperfections. Our trusted professionals use a Five-Step Process to make sure your new finish is perfect.
Step 2 - Surface Preparation
Surface repair is a crucial step in caring for your vehicle.Chips, scratches, cracks and excessive peeling can ruin your paint job entirely if left untreated. Don't leave these imperfections exposed to the elements for long. Correcting these issues will restore your vehicle's paint job to a smooth and glossy finish.
The professional estimators at Maaco Schererville will fully inspect your vehicle and recommend any necessary repairs. Our surface prep options are cost-effective and will guarantee your MAACOVER is flawless. Performing surface repairs before the final paint job will ensure that your vehicle maintains a glossy finish for years.
Step 3 - Surface Sealer
You may have noticed that some paint jobs just can't seem to hold their shine. This may be from the uneven color and gloss that sometimes comes from mixing old and new paint. Sealer performs the important task of providing a barrier between old and new paint.This allows for even color application and more gloss throughout the paint job.
Maaco of Schererville offers three different grades of sealer. The choice of which grade of sealer to use depends on desired durability and the amount of prep work your vehicle needs. Sealer will help your vehicle keep a shiny finish long after the paint job is done.
Step 4 - Paint Services
The three different paint packages that Maaco of Schererville offers are the Basic, Preferred and Premium packages. Each is tailored to your vehicle's specific needs and your budget. Each service is unique in their degree of longevity and appearance. Longevity of the paint includes warranty/durability and appearance includes gloss, color match and metallic appearance.
Our Basic #MAACOVER includes an application of a single-stage enamel paint to revive your vehicle's paint job. This service also includes a one-year warranty, along with a glossy finish and accurate color match.
Looking for greater durability, but need to stay at an affordable price?
Our Preferred service is your best bet and comes with a three-year warranty. This single-stage application uses urethane, which resists chipping and is much more resilient than enamel finishes.
When it comes to the best look and performance, there is no topping our two-stage Premium service. Complete with a five-year warranty, this service offers the highest level of durability, best possible glossy finish and superb color match that you will want to show off for years.
Step 5 - Protection & Finish
After investing in a quality paint job, make sure to take the steps to protect it. AT Maaco, we often apply clear coats after painting to not only protect the fresh paint job, but to also ensure gloss match and an overall seamless repair.
Step 6 - Proper Car Care
Making sure the durability and appearance of your new paint last a long time requires proper car care. Proper maintenance will enable your car to better hold its color and shine and provide protection from the environment.
Try to do the following:
- Avoid driving on sand, salt or loose gravel;
- Park in the shade, but avoid trees;
- Wash your car regularly.
Remove unwanted contaminants that may be damaging your finish by washing your car regularly. Elements such as tree sap, bird droppings or bugs can damage your car's finish. We recommended that you hand wash your car twice a month with mild automotive detergent. Avoid scratching the surface of the paint by using a soft cloth or sponge.
Also make sure to rinse underneath your car to remove salt, dirt, or other chemicals that can cause rusting.
Four to six weeks following your paint job, we recommend that you start waxing your vehicle every 3-4 months to protect the new finish. Make sure to use an automotive wax that does not contain abrasive cleaning agents, such as silicone.
Apply a thin coat of wax to the entire car using the provided applicator and with short, circular motions. Allow the wax to dry completely before removing it. Apply firm pressure and use the same circular motion with a terry cloth towel to wipe the wax off.
