Step 1 - Body Repair

Worried about those small dents and unsightly scratches ruining your paint job?

No need to worry. As part of your vehicle's MAACOVER, our body repair technicians have mastered the method of eliminating those blemishes down to a Five-Step Process to ensure that your finish is free from those small dents and unsightly scratches.

Step 2 - Surface Preparation

Don't overlook the importance of surface repairs. Notice any cracks, scratches, chips or excessive peeling on your vehicle? If you leave these imperfections exposed to the elements without treating, your paint job could seriously suffer. Make sure you repair these issues as soon as possible to give your vehicle a paint job with the smoothest and glossiest finish possible.

The trusted estimators at Maaco Columbia, will examine your vehicle and recommend condition repairs. Our surface prep options are affordable and will ensure your MAACOVER looks amazing. Repairing any surface issues before painting will allow the paint job to maintain a shiny finish for a long time.

Step 3 - Surface Sealer

Some paint jobs fail to hold their shine, even if it hasn't been that long since they were completed. This may be because of the reaction between old and new paint mixing, which can result in uneven color and gloss. To establish a barrier between the old and new paint, Maaco painters will apply sealer.

We offer three grades of sealer at Maaco of Columbia. The correct choice factors in durability and the amount of prep work needed for your individual vehicle. Sealers helps keep consistent shine long after the job is complete.

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.

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

Proper car care can have a major impact on the durability and appearance of your new paint. The right maintenance can help your car hold its color and shine, as well as provide protection from the elements.

When possible, try to:

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

WASHING:

Washing your car is a great way to remove unwanted contaminants that may be damaging your finish such as tree sap, bird droppings or bugs. It's recommended that you hand wash your car twice a month with mild automotive detergent. Use a soft cloth or sponge to avoid scratching the surface of the paint.

Be sure to use this as an opportunity to rinse the undercarriage of your car to remove dirt, salt or other chemicals that promote rust.

WAXING:

Four to six weeks following your paint job, we recommend that you wax your car every 3-4 months to protect your new finish. Make sure to use an automotive wax, like Mothers, that does not contain abrasive cleaning agents, such as silicone.

Apply a thin coat of wax using the provided applicator and with short, circular motions apply it to the entire car. Allow the wax to dry completely before removing it. Using a terry cloth towel, apply firm pressure to wipe the wax off using the same short, circular motion.
