Whether you are planning to sell your car or simply want to restore its appearance, a paint job can help accomplish either of these goals. A fresh coat is often a complete transformation – from rundown to spruced up in no time. Some drivers are concerned about the details; color-matching, protection and cost. At DaSilva’s Auto Body, we guarantee that our multi-step painting process will be thorough and beyond your expectations.

How do you know when it’s time for a new paint job?

The Paint is Fading

If you don’t have a garage, your car’s paint is more likely to become faded. Fading is the result of too much exposure to the elements. For example, the strength of the sun shining down on the surface of your car can cause it’s shade and lacquer to start deteriorating.

The Paint is Peeling

Peeling paint is often the result of a poor initial paint job. When paint is not properly sealed, it offers little protection from the elements. After a new coat, be sure to have your car waxed regularly to maintain the strength of the sealant.

While some scratches can be wiped away, others are beyond buffering. When the damage goes below the surface, the only way to get rid of it is with a fresh coat of paint. Although we can’t control the actions of others, avoid tight parking spaces and errant shopping carts.

The Paint is Rusted

One of the most unwanted, unsightly blemishes on our cars is rust. Vehicles can become rusted as the result of salted roads in the wintertime, exposed metal and an overall lack of care. This process is irreversible, so rust is a good reason to schedule a new paint job.

Additionally, if you’ve been in an accident, auto painting is a necessary repair. To schedule an appointment with our experienced technicians for a high-quality paint job, contact DaSilva’s Auto Body. We start and finish the job with customer satisfaction in mind.
