The Executive Detail is the first in our line of full interior and exterior details and usually takes 5-7 hours to complete. On the interior the car is cleaned from the carpets to the headliner and everywhere in between. On the exterior, the vehicle is hand washed and machine polished and waxed with a carnauba wax leaving behind 3-6 months of protection. This package is going to get the interior of your vehicle back looking the way it should and is going to rejuvenate the exterior of your vehicle, leaving it feeling smooth and looking glossy. This is a also a great package for those trying to sell a vehicle.
The Signature Detail is our version of what a detail should be and typically takes us a full day to complete.
This package is for those who truly care about their vehicles and want to keep them protected for many months to come.
This package includes all of the features of the Executive detail package with a few additions.
On the inside, all leather is cleaned and conditioned with a ph balanced leather cleanser and conditioner and all interior surfaces are cleaned and conditioned with a UV protecting interior product.
On the outside, the vehicle gets a decontamination wash with a product that removes materials embedded in the clear coat such as small rust spots and embedded brake particles. After the wash, the outside of the car is clay barred to smooth out the surface before our polishing process. A dedicated one-stage polish is then performed to remove 60-80% of swirl marks and defects in the vehicles paint restoring both gloss and clarity to the finish.
After the polishing step we then apply a layer of our favorite resin based paint sealant.
The sealant is allowed to cure for one hour before being buffed off leaving behind a layer of serious gloss and protection.
Water will bead off of the car for up to the next year depending on how the vehicle is cared for and will make the vehicle much easier to keep clean and maintain. Exhaust tips are then polished and all exterior trim is dressed in our longest lasting trim treatment. We’re not selling snake oil here, this is truly a great detail package that will leave your vehicle protected inside and out.
This sealant is in a class of it’s own when it comes to long term protection. However, for those looking for more, additional layers of gloss and SiiO2 protection can be stacked on top for this sealant for an added $20. If you are looking for an even deeper one-step polish to remove 80+% of defects let us know and we can usually work something out.
The Showroom detail package is our top of the line detail package and is for those looking to restore the exterior of their vehicle to like-new condition.
This process usually takes 1-2 days to complete. Please call for more pricing.
In addition to all of the aspects of our Signature detail we are going to perform an additional compounding step on the exterior of the vehicle to remove 95-99% of all swirl marks and as many paint defects as we are able.
This is a long process that takes time and skill. The compounding step is then finished with a fine polish to restore gloss and clarity to the paint finish leaving the vehicle with an incredible shine.
We then follow up the paint correction with a layer of our favorite resin based paint sealant (allowing it to cure for one hour) to lock in the new finish with an incredible layer of gloss and protection.
The resin based paint sealant can also be substituted for a ceramic coating that can last anywhere from 3-5 years for an additional fee. We also perform the showroom detail as an exterior-only package.
Details about Ceramic Coatings and our exterior packages can be found under “Exterior Packages”.
The Interior Detail Package is a full interior detail and typically takes anywhere from 3 to 5 hours to complete depending on the vehicle. The interior of the vehicle is cleaned from the carpets to headliner and everywhere in between.
The Executive exterior detail typically takes anywhere from 2 to 3 hours to complete depending on the vehicle. The process begins with a special foam bath to loosen up surface contaminants, bugs, and tar on the vehicles surface. As the presoak process takes place the wheels, wheel wells and tires are cleaned. The vehicle is then hand washed, rinsed, aired and toweled dry. We then clay bar the vehicle to remove embedded surface contaminants to to smooth the surface of the paint before waxing. The tires, wheel wells and all exterior trim are dressed and darkened. The vehicle is then lightly polished and waxed with a carnauba cleaner wax to restore surface clarity and leave a layer of carnauba protection.
The Signature exterior detail typically takes around 4-5 hours to complete. This detail package includes all of the aspects of the “Exterior” detail package and then some. After the wash process (which include a deep dish wheel cleaning) and clay barring the car, we perform a dedicated one-stage polish to remove about 60-70% of swirl marks, defects and light scratches, restoring gloss and greatly improving the look of the exterior. This dedicated polishing step is then followed up by our favorite resin-based paint sealant which is allowed to cure for one hour on the vehicle before being buffed off. This creates a serious layer of protection and gloss that will last up to a year depending on how the vehicle is maintained. Exhaust tips are polished and all trim is treated and darkened with our longest lasting trim shine. If you are looking for an even deeper one-step polish to remove 80+% of defects let us know and we can usually work something out.
The Showroom Exterior Detail Package is our finest detail package and is for those looking for a truly exceptional finish for the exterior of their vehicle. This package typically takes 1-2 days to complete. Over time and in large part a cause of drive-through car washes and improper car washing techniques, a vehicles finish can become dull and the clear coat can become swirled with paint defects. The Showroom Detail Package is designed to safely remove these defects from your vehicles surface and to restore your vehicles finish as closely as possible (and oftentimes even better than) to the day you purchased it. After washing and clay barring the vehicle, license plates are removed, critical areas are taped off, and all non swirl-related scratches are lightly sanded down in hopes of removal during the compounding process. The vehicle is then compounded with a heavy cutting compound to remove 95-100% of swirl marks and as many scratches as we are able. Following the compounding process, the vehicles exterior is polished with a fine polish to restore clarity and gloss to the finish. Lastly, our favorite resin-based paint sealant is applied and allowed to cure for 1 hour before removal, enhancing gloss and protecting the vehicle for a year after application. You may also substitute a ceramic coating in place of our sealant for an additional fee.
If you have just purchased a new car and would like to keep it that way, our New Car Preservation Package is the best way to do so. This package includes a thorough hand wash, clay bar and one step polish with our favorite polish to ensure removal of any paint defects that may have been caused in transit or at the dealership. Once the surface is properly prepped, a layer of one of our favorite ceramic coatings is applied and allowed to cure before being removed leaving behind incredible gloss and 3-5 years of protection.
Ceramic coatings come in a variety of levels, feel free to give us a call for an explanation and for pricing.
