Cars have a rough life. The fact is that a ton of steel driving outdoors at highway speeds puts a lot of stress on the vehicle. Not every road is as clean as it should be, and litter or debris on the road can damage a car’s finish. Although cosmetic in nature, a paint job is not an easy task. Whether repairing damage to a specific body part or sprucing up an older car’s appearance, painting requires intricate prep work of sanding and covering parts that aren’t to receive paint. The paint itself takes time to dry and properly cure, and if more than one coat is needed, the new paint has to be sanded again to provide an appropriate surface to receive the next coat.

Why a Car Might Need a New Paint Job
The most obvious reason a car might need a new paint job is that it was in an accident. Whether dents can be hammered out or if new body parts are required to complete the repairs, painting is the final step toward making the car “as good as new” again. We prefer at Timbrook Collision Center when a car owner has taken great care of an older car over the years. It runs great, the interior has been kept clean and taken care of, but years of driving in the elements and under normal driving conditions have caused the paint job to fade or become scratched in places. We love cars and like seeing people get the most out of their vehicle investment, and we feel a car should look as nice as it can to maintain such an investment.
