Auto Painting in Charleston, SC

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

What's the importance of surface repair? You know those chips, scratches, cracks and excessive peeling on your vehicle? If left untreated and exposed to the elements over time, these conditions could ultimately ruin your paint job. Repairing such issues will help your vehicle receive the smoothest finish and highest possible gloss.

At Maaco of Charleston, our estimators examine your vehicle and suggest condition repairs. We offer affordable surface prep options that ensure your MAACOVER looks great. A little surface repair before the paint goes on can ensure it holds that gloss and shine for years to come.

Step 3 - Surface Sealer

Have you ever noticed how some paint jobs fail to hold their shine? It could be a matter of that old paint mixing with the new, creating uneven color and gloss. Sealer plays that all-important role of establishing a barrier between the old and new paint. This ensures consistent color and a higher gloss throughout the entire painted surface.

At Maaco of Charleston, we offer three grades of sealer. The right choice is all about durability, and ultimately the amount of prep work needed for your particular vehicle. When it comes to the durability of your vehicle's paint, sealer helps keep consistent shine long after the job is done.

Step 4 - Paint Services

Maaco offers three paint packages that are designed to your specific needs and budget concerns.

These packages are our Basic, Preferred and Premium paint jobs. Each of these services take two factors into consideration: Longevity of the paint, including warranty and durability, and the appearance of the paint, including gloss and color match.

Paint Services

Basic #MAACOVER

We apply a single-stage enamel paint to refresh your vehicle's appearance. Our Basic service offers a one-year warranty, and gives your car an attractive gloss and accurate color match.

Preferred #MAACOVER

Need to keep your paint job at a reasonable price but want better durability?

The Preferred package is for you! It even comes with a three-year warranty. It consists of a single-stage paint application that utilizes urethane. This ingredient resists chipping and is more resilient than enamel finishes.

Premium #MAACOVER

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.

Platinum #Maacover

Our Platinum #MAACOVER is a package that bundles several of our incredible services that will undoubtedly provide a superb paint job. The service begins with light chip and scratch repair, followed by an initial prep service with priming and block sanding, followed by painting with a urethane sealer. The package also includes a five-year warranty that protects against fade of gloss and peeling.

Step 5 - Protection & Finish

A great paint job deserves great protection. We often apply clear coats to our paint jobs to not only protect the paint, but to ensure an accurate gloss match and an overall seamless repair.

Step 6 - Proper Car Care

Taking the proper car care steps can have a major impact on the durability and appearance a new paint job. Proper maintenance will help your car maintain its color and shine and provide protection from the elements.

Use these tips to protect your new paint job:

  • Wash your car regularly;
  • Park in the shade, but avoid trees;
  • Avoid driving on sand, salt or loose gravel.

WASHING:

Make sure to wash your car regularly to remove unwanted contaminants that can damage your finish such as bird droppings, tree sap or bugs. We recommend hand washing your car twice a month with mild automotive detergent. Use a soft cloth or sponge to clean to avoid scratching the surface of the paint.

Also use this as an opportunity to rinse the underside of your car to remove impurities that can lead to rusting.

WAXING:

After your paint job is completed, we recommend that you wax your car every 3-4 months to protect your new finish. Make sure to use an automotive wax that does not contain abrasive cleaning ingredients like silicone. We recommend Mothers brand wax.

When applying the wax, administer a thin coat of wax using the provided applicator and with short, circular motions. Let the wax to dry completely before removing it. Using a terry cloth towel, apply firm pressure to wipe the wax off using a similar short, circular motion.
