Paint Services

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.

Our Paint Performance Guarantee (PPG) at Timbrook Collision

The Lifetime Limited Paint Performance Guarantee covers the area of the vehicle refinished with specified PPG products for as long as the consumers own the car. The refinished area is covered for the following paint failures:
  • Peeling or delamination of the topcoat and/or other layers of paint.
  • Cracking, chalking, or checking.
  • Lost gloss caused by Cracking, chalking, or checking.
  • Any paint failure attributed to defective PPG automotive products which are by the guarantee.

Exclusions to our PPG

  • Paint deterioration caused by bubbles, blusters, or other film degradation to rust or corrosion origination from the substrate.
  • Hazing, chalking, or loss of gloss caused by improper care, abrasive polishes, cleaning agents of heavy-duty pressure washing.
  • Paint deterioration caused by abuse, accidents, acid rain, chemical fallout, stone chipping, any road hazard, or other acts of nature.
  • Accidents, scratchers, or chips (including stone chips), due to normal vehicle use.
  • Customer finishes, exotic finishes, or any finish other approved refinish systems.
  • Finishes on vehicle used for commercial or competitive purposes.
  • Failure resulting from product misuse or abuse.
  • Repairs done over previously refinished area unlines stripped to bare metal or other original substrates (Repairs made over OEM refinished area are covered under this guarantee, without requiring the vehicle to be stripped to bare metal or original substrate).
  • Claims presented without proper guarantee documentation.
  • Failure on finishes where any type of color or clear blend stops before the full panels and leaves an unprotected tapered color or clear coat edge. In the chase of a clear coated color, it would be acceptable to blend the color before the end of the panels, but the clear coat must fully cover the blend edge and extend the ends of the panel..
*This guarantee is not transferable in the event the vehicle is sold or traded to another individual or company.

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.

What Happens if New Paint Isn't Applied

Some people might not care how their vehicle looks from the outside the way other people take pride in the car they drive. In such instances, it’s important to understand how paint provides an important aspect of the car’s continued performance. Paint isn’t just cosmetic. It prevents rust from forming on exposed steel parts or corrosion on parts that aren’t metallic. Paint can also add an aspect of visual appeal the driver can be proud to display. A further issue is how, even though they shouldn’t in theory, police assume there are more problems than the paint job when they see a ragged jalopy driving down the road. A new paint job can prevent such unwanted attention from being drawn to the vehicle.
