When you want to achieve the best results 

For newer vehicles and primary vehicles, a touch-up kit won’t deliver the results that you expect. The car paint used by professionals is of high quality. The color and tint are precisely matched to your make and model. Certified collision repair facilities are able to apply the paint so that the finish matches your car perfectly and it restores that ‘new car’ look.

When you need extensive paintwork done 

Certified collision repair shops have special equipment for vehicle painting which makes the job more efficient and effective. When the damage is extensive, there is also a high probability that there is another damage under the surface, to the car’s body, components, or chassis. DIYers risk letting this more serious damage go unnoticed. When you take the car to a professional, technicians will verify the safety of the vehicle, check the extent of the damage, and make the repairs needed.

When you want to preserve the value of the vehicle

A good paint job can actually boost the resale value when it comes time to sell the vehicle. Professional paint adds value by protecting the auto body components from gravel and debris and helping to prevent corrosion and rust. Certified collision repair technicians have the training and experience needed to perform seamless spot painting and full-body applications that will safeguard the car for years to come. Additionally, if your vehicle has been in an accident and you need to match the paint exactly, only certified collision repair centres have access to manufacturer paints. 

It is very important to have your car’s paint touched up by a professional after you have been in a collision. If you are looking for more information about this, we encourage you to get in touch with a Pfaff Autoworks representative.
