The best professional will take time to fix your vehicle the right way, and that includes matching the paint color on your car, which is essential to making it look as good as new and creating a repair that lasts.
Tom’s Body & Paint, Inc. is committed to making your car look its best again, which includes exactly matching the existing paint color with any touchups or repainting jobs. Read on to learn more about why paint color matching is such a priority for us:
- Shades are not all the same: While two “black” cars may look like the same color, the exact shade may be very different. It’s important to not just eyeball the color of the car and buy a shade that seems like a “close match.” If it’s not the exact paint match, it won’t blend right. Other shops that cut corners may pick the closest match color that they have in their shop, which will result in a patchy looking paint job.
- Retain your vehicle’s value: Making sure that the paint job is flawless is important in preserving your car’s value. Even the slightest color mismatch will be apparent to prospective buyers and onlookers. Additionally, as the driver who knows where the damage occurred before the fix, you will certainly be able to pinpoint where it’s been repainted. The vehicle will not just look poorly patched up, but it will decrease in value and visual appeal as well.
- DIY color matching often fails: If you’re fixing your car yourself and trying to color match on your own, it’s very likely that you won’t be able to match the color exactly, which will be noticeable not just by you, but by anyone looking at your car.
- Color changes over time: Even if you know the name of your car’s paint, wear and tear and exposure to the elements as well as UV rays, road grime and cleaning products will change the color of your paint over time. It may have faded and lost shine, even if you’ve taken care of your car. This means that even if you purchase the exact paint color from the original manufacturer, you’ll still be able to see where you’ve painted over scratches or dents. A professional will take into account the color changes of your car when matching paint, ensuring a seamless result.
