Class A vs. Elective Repairs
We can help you handle all of the details if you need to file an insurance claim for your repair work. We will coordinate all of the repairs and we work with every major insurance company. We will also provide you with a detailed repair plan for your unique vehicle.
If you are paying for repair work yourself, we fully appreciate that cost is a big factor. We will review your initial repair plan and offer some options that will help cut down on cost. We will do this while also ensuring no sacrifice is made to the quality of the repairs.
At Maaco of Silver Spring, 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
At Maaco of Silver Spring, we never let dust, dirt or lint get in the way of a flawless paint job. Following any spot painting, we'll perform our standard finishing work. This entails any necessary sanding, buffing and polishing to get rid of any remaining imperfections.
This process begins with wet sanding, which is evenly spread over the surface and then smoothed out. Next, we use a liquid compound to carefully buff the area. The final step of polishing will restore the shine to your paint and clear coat.
Our finishing process ensures any spot painting is complete and perfect.
