The Correction Detail is quite simply the most comprehensive level of service offered here at Valiant Detailing. Includes multiple stages of machine polishing along with our wheels off upgrade, deep engine bay cleanse & full interior detail. The paint correction element of the package aims to restore paint to near-perfect levels and includes wet sanding stages where required, all paint correction is carried out in a safe and methodical manner and factors in clear coat depths and safe removal rates. Additional benefits of the package include application of a host of industry-leading ceramic coatings to all painted surfaces, trim, wheels, interior surfaces, and glass sections.
The Correction Detail takes a minimum of 7 days to complete but generally, this time frame can extend to the 10-14 day range depending on the starting condition of the vehicle, individual requests and the general scope of the project. Upon completing the detailing works all ceramic coatings and paint protection film installations are cured in our climate-controlled environment for a minimum of 48 hours.
This level of service is hugely labour-intensive and employs an ‘as long as it takes’ approach, the final results are nothing short of transformational. Perfect level of service for those seeking a near-perfect finish. For additional information on the stages & processes involved please see below.
Safe Wash, Decontamination & Preparation Stages
All detailing packages start with a comprehensive multi-stage preparation process.
