As the temperatures start to drop, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to protect your vehicle from Jack Frost this winter. And no, winter car protection doesn’t mean brushing snow off your hood and scraping ice from your windshield. While the weather can certainly do damage to your car, salt from snow plows can end up being worse if you aren’t prepared. To truly protect your car, you’ll need to take your vehicle to a body shop for auto painting in Middletown, NJ.
Why paint your car before winter?
There are two main reasons you want to get your car in to a body shop before the first snowfall. First, you want your car painted before the snowplows go out and start spreading road salt all over the place. The road salt will corrode your paint throughout the course of the winter and can eventually eat its way down to the metal and cause rust formation. It goes without saying that rust on your car will seriously diminish the value of your vehicle.
Second, scheduling an appointment for auto painting in Middletown, NJ before it’s cold will be easier. There are only so many hours in a day and only so many bays we have for auto painting. If everyone in town wants their car painted or touched up at the same time, you may be waiting a long time before we can fit you in for an appointment.
What will paint do for my car?
A fresh coat of paint before the winter will ensure the nasty road salt doesn’t have a chance to eat its way down to your car’s metal body frame and start forming rust. The new coat of paint will cover up any previous little chips that would be especially vulnerable to the corrosive road salt. On top of protecting your car, a fresh coat of paint will also make your car look brand new again.
What’s in the paint?
Car paint technology has come a long way over the past few decades. We use PPG Waterborne paint, which is not only a higher quality paint than its solvent-based counterparts—it’s also better for the environment as it doesn’t contain as many volatile organic compounds. The paint we use has a variety of additives that ensure the paint will be long lasting and resistant to minor chips, which can eventually lead to big problems for your overall paint job.
Is there anything else I can do to protect my car?
Yes! In order to keep your car’s new paint job fresh and free from any contaminants, it’s important to clean your car regularly. We understand that cleaning your car regularly is a pain, so that’s why we’ll do it for you! Our full auto detailing service includes cleaning the inside and outside of your car, as well as adding a layer of protective wax to further ensure a happy and attractive car throughout the winter.
