How the Spring Season Can Damage Your Car Paint

How the Spring Season Can Damage Your Car Paint

Springtime is a very beautiful time. After the snow and cold, the sun is refreshing and warming. For drivers, its a pleasant time. After spending months driving in the cold, having to deal with snowy roads, for a break you want to enjoy some warmth. Apart from the colorful flowers, birds chirping and clear skies, spring ushers in some paint damaging forces.

If you want to keep up the immaculate painting of your car, you’ll have to know those forces that act to damage your car’s paint. Let’s consider some common signs of spring you should be wary of.

Pavement Debris

Race Car, Race Track, Dirt Road, Car, Racing Car, Fast

This is quite common in areas that experience a lot of snow. Due to frequent use of road plows and salt, some spots on the pavement may become loose. This rough debris can be picked up by the tires of moving vehicles and shot to your car hoods or bumpers. This will cause chipping, flaking, or even worse body corrosion.

To prevent this, you have to act fast. Once you notice a chip, use a matching touch up paint from a dealership to conceal it. Before using the paint, make sure the surface is clean. So clean any dust or dirt on the surface of the spot you want to paint on. You can only do this a few times. If the chipping is on several parts of the car, then the touch up begins to look tacky. It’s time you take your car to an auto repairs shop and get the finish smooth again.

Tree Sap

During spring, trees drip sap. If you park your car under one and it drips sap on it. You should get it off quickly with some alcohol. If you leave it on the car, and the sun bakes it, it then crystallizes on the car’s surface leaving that spot unpleasant.

The only way to get is off is by using alcohol and rubbing it off with a microfiber. You should also consider not parking your car under a tree if you can help it.

Bugs and Bird Droppings

Flying bugs can get splattered on your car and ruin your car finish. These bugs contain acids and when it’s splattered on your car and is baked by the sun, can corrode your car finish. To prevent this, wash off the splatter as soon as possible with soapy water and then rinse it off.

Bugs are not the only flying creatures that could ruin your car paint, birds do too. Or rather, bird droppings. Bird droppings contains some things like uric acid and residues that can discolor your car. Don’t leave them on your car, clean them off as soon as possible using damp cloth.

Pollen

Spring, Tree, Flowers, Meadow, Tree Trunk, Sunlight

They appear harmless but they aren’t to your car. They can scratch your car paint. Because they are very tiny, they can get into your car’s pores and settle. If this continues for a while, they deposited pollen can release acids and this results in color fading. To get rid of this, wash your car with warm soapy water and rinse the car.

If you’ve been dealing with these problems and it telling on your car’s finish, simply get it to an auto repair shop. Sam auto body and paint is happy to help you with this. We are qualified to get your paint back to factory condition, so you’d enjoy your ride this spring.

Why Does My Car Paint Peel?

Tags : 

Car Paint Peels: What Causes it?

Cars get us where we want to be. Well, some places we want to be. I mean,  you cannot drive to the Bahamas, except you’re in the Bahamas.

I own a convertible and I absolutely love my baby. I’m sure you love yours too. You wash and wax it faithfully. If there are some scratches on the painted body, you get some touch-up paint to cover it up.

All is good until you notice some peels on the car body, now you’re really concerned. You feel betrayed, you take such good care of your car, why would the paint peel? To under why this happens, you need to know about the different layers that form your car finish.

Layers that Form Your Car Finish

Your car’s finish was formed by different layers of coating:

The Primer

This is also called undercoat. This is the first coating applied to the surface of your car body. It gets the surface ready for further coatings. It protects the surface and ensures that other coatings stick to the surface of the metal.

The Base Coat

This coating is applied after the primer. It is the main paint. It gives the car it’s characteristic color. The base coat could be metallic, pearlescent, or solid paint.

The Clear Coat

This is a transparent and glossy coating. It is the final coating for your car. This coating helps to protect the car from abrasion and UV rays.

Now you know what forms your car finish and how each coating functions to protect the car body. What causes the paint to peel or delaminate?

Why does Delamination occur?

This occurs when a layer of coating or all layers of coating stop adhering to the metal surface of the car. This results in the flaking and eventual peeling of the paint. Some of factors contribute to this problem are:

  1. Improper Preparation of the Painted Surface: This usually occurs if the painting was done properly.  It could be as a result of uneven application of one of the coatings. It could also be caused by improper finishing of the metal panel of the car. If any of the aforementioned is the culprit, then after a while the paint may no longer adhere to the surface causing it to peel or delaminate.
  2. A Break in Paint Seal: A scratch or peel on the car paint can deteriorate to delamination. This is possible because an exposure caused by a chip or scratch on the coatings may allow moisture to get in thereby causing rust formation. This reduces the adhesive strength of the coatings and gives way to delamination. Under some external influence like high-pressure washing,  a chip may be totally blown off leaving a larger area exposed for delamination to occur.

Can Parts Affected by Delamination be Repaired?

Paint peeling cannot be completely avoided. It’s important you pay attention to observe the paint peels in time for repairs. Some factors will determine the if the damage can be repaired.

It’s important to know how serious the damage is, a light scratch could be repaired with a touch-up paint. But in case of serious peels, the affected area has to be repainted.

The size of the damage should be considered too. If it’s a coin sized damage, it can be easily retouched but if the damage is on different parts of the car body,  it will be best to repaint the whole body of the car.

If your car has unsightly peels it may be best you get it to an expert for repairs. Even if it is a little touch-up or body repainting, an expert is in the position to take care of that. At Sam’s Auto Body and Paint, we have experienced technicians with the right facilities to restore your vehicle’s finish back to appropriate conditions.

5 Reasons Why You Should Use this Free Ad Medium

Tags : 

Thinking about getting your business vehicle a new coat of paint? Or maybe not?

You should though. And we will tell you why.

But if you are thinking about doing it:

Sam’s Auto body and Paint would be honored to help keep the body of your work vehicle in top shape and we’d be honored to help spread the word of your business with decals, custom paint jobs, and more.

It is Probably Time to Spruce up the Old Business Car or Truck

Today we’d like to talk a little bit about why you should choose us for your auto body and paint work for your company car, as well as why it might be a good idea to spruce up the old truck, car, or SUV you use to advertise and transport yourself, clients, and employees.

1. Pride

Show that you have pride in your business and that you are a successful company with beautiful paint and auto body work for your company vehicle. This goes for town cars used by the company to transport clients, a car your company has given you to travel, or a vehicle you and your other employees use to get to the job. Keeping this vehicle clean, running smooth, and looking new is a great way to boost morale as well as the clients’ confidence in choosing you.

2. Free advertising

Once your company name, logo, phone number, or more are on your vehicle, people will take notice. People stuck in traffic may see your car or truck nearby and think “yes, I need that service in my life, I’ll have to remember their name,” and your car parked in parking lots, at your home, or even at your place of business will draw attention as well. Mobile marketing works!

3. Improve your image

If you can afford a car specifically for your company (personal vehicle you use to advertise, trucks or cars to transport employees, etc) then customers will take notice. You will look more professional! No one wants to hire gardeners, cleaning companies, or locksmiths in unmarked vans or trucks, do they?

4. Efficiency

If you have vehicles your employees use to get to and from the job, it’ll be easy to keep track of how much money you are using for gas, how often you travel, and more. Keeping these vehicles in top shape, dent free, scratch free, and with long-lasting paint will be one less thing you have to worry about—leaving you free to worry about other things.

5. We work with insurance companies

Be it your personal auto insurance or your company insurance, if your vehicle is insured we will work with you and the insurance company to get your vehicle back on the road, looking great!

Paint Matching: Help Your Car Get Over Its Horrible Past

Tags : 

It’s always funny to see a car with mismatching paint. From a certain perspective, it’ll look like a futuristic attempt at car body paint art. But when you look closely, you see it for what it is: a bad paint job.

Sometimes this happens to a vehicle that has been through a collision. That’s fine, even the best of drivers can find themselves in a collision. But it’s better to leave it where it belongs – in the past. Don’t let your vehicle scream: “I was in a collision!”

Paint Matching

So your car has suffered some superficial damage that needs fixing. No matter if it stood in the way of a rogue shopping cart at the mall, or if you were paying too much attention to your phone and your eyes were not exactly on the road, you can count on us to fix the damage and restore your car to its former glory. In our experience, there are not many auto body shops that find paint matching to be an important thing, but we are here to argue against that.

Paint matching can also be done when the car is not in for a full paint job. These are the cases when only a certain area or certain areas need some touching up. If we would be talking about a full paint job, then paint matching would have actually been useless, because the chances of you noticing the different shade would be slim to none.

WOW! Looks brand new!

However, given the fact that we are only talking about minor scratches in some areas of the car, paint matching is crucial. Otherwise, if the auto body shop you are entrusting your vehicle with, skips this step, you would end up owning a car that is too – shaded. It is obvious that if the new paint is noticeably different from the old one, the work done by the repair technician is also visible. Your car will not be looking as new. Instead, it would look like it has been patched up, and that is not a desirable look at all.

Now, if you want to make sure that your car ends up in the right hands then you should definitely give us a call. Sam’s Auto Body & Shop has years of experience in working with damaged cars and in fixing all types of dents and scratches. We always make sure that our work is of the highest quality. We pride ourselves on always being able to perfectly match any type of paint. In some cases, we even end up contacting the manufacturer. This is how dedicated we are to making your car look like new again.

Don’t let your car live in the past, give a  fresh coat of paint – full body paint job that matches of course. It makes your car look new, like the collision or those rough times never happened at all. With Sam’s Auto Body and Paint, your car will be restored to its shiny glossy state.

Auto Body Paint: What is Paint Blending?

Tags : 

Have you heard of Paint blending? You probably have but most people are not quite clear on what that is. If you are one of them and you want to know what it is before you pay for it, you are in the right place.

What is Paint Blending?

Most vehicles are made of separate sections that professionals call panels. All these are welded or bolted together to form a single motorized unit. If there are scattered damages to an auto body such as dents from hailstones, paint blending has to be used.

No matter how insignificant the damage, you should always have your car looked at by a professional. A professional will not overlook Paint blending.

Thankfully, Sam’s Auto Body & Paint is here to give you a helping hand and to make your car look just like new. We pride ourselves on having the highest quality services in town. And we work with the most experienced and professional experts in the field.

Paint jobs: New look or refurbishment

No matter if you have decided to completely change the look of your car, or if you simply want to cover up some scratches, there is a very important step in every paint job process. This step should never be ignored because otherwise, the car might end up looking less than ideal. Of course, we are talking about paint blending. This step basically ensures the fact that the paint job is not visible and that your car does not look patched up.

Paint Blending

Even if you are fortunate enough to come across a highly professional auto body shop that gives special attention to perfectly match the color and the shade of the paint, the paint blending process is still important. Even if you do have the same color, there might still be some well-defined edges and ridges. If not attended to properly, they will give away the fact that the car has been painted. This is exactly why the paint job needs to be done professionally. That is only where paint technicians are able to perfectly hide these ridges and rough edges. This way, your vehicle will look just like new and the work done will not be noticeable at all.

Where to find Paint Blending Professionals?

Now that you know just how important the paint blending process is, you should also make the right decision and have your car looked at by a professional. In case you were wondering, the best paint blending experts are working at Sam’s Auto Body & Paint. There is no other auto body shop capable to do paint jobs as amazing as the ones done here.

Car Paint Job Phoenix: All about Auto body beauty

Tags : 

auto paint and bodyWe love painting cars, making them look newer, repairing any discoloration or other paint problems. We also love custom paint jobs which help show the individuality of the driver. In a perfect world, everyone could afford (and would like to have) a custom paint job. Your vehicle is a great way to express yourself, not just a way to get from point A to point B.

Why not help your car-loving friends express their love of their car and their individuality by paying for a custom paint job through Sam’s Auto Body and Paint? We’d love to help your loved ones have the car of their dreams! Paying for some touch-up work on an older car that’s seen better days can boost the morale of your loved ones. Adding some special touches like stripes, hood paintings, decals, and other smaller changes can make it harder to lose a car in the parking lots while adding a little flare. Young people with their first car may want a new paint job to show off their ride to their friends—making an old car look cooler.

Why you should repaint your car

Some of us neglect to get our cars repainted because “what’s the point?” The point is, fresh paint can actually be a good thing to do for your car. Paint does more than make the car look a certain way, the right paint job will also help protect the body of the car. This isn’t to say that a fresh paint job will keep dents from happening, but it can decrease the chance of rust spots and other problems. We’ve all seen faded spots on our cars and the texture changes. When left unchecked, these spots can lead to other damage like corrosion, rust, and more.

Paint job for your Car Body: Keep it shiny

Tags : 

When people show off their cars, the shiny body is one of the most attractive features of the car. I mean, these days, if your car can’t throw off a very sharp reflection, then there’s probably a problem with the paint job. You can easily tell if a car is brand new from how shiny the body is. And the same goes for a car that has been repainted. You can spot a bad paint job from a mile away.

If you care for your car body and you want it to shine all year round, you should read this post. It’ll be cool to say there’s a secret to it, but there really isn’t. In fact, we’re giving this away to our blog readers for free. Read on.

Paint job for your Car Body: Keep it shiny

This is exactly why our suggestion would be for them to show their love by trying Sam’s Auto Body & Paint’s auto painting services. It would be the makeover their car needs and since their car only deserves what is best, then it would be only fitting to ask our team of experts for help.

auto painting

Although auto painting does not seem to be such a big deal, it is highly important for it to be done right, by a professional and with the right kind of products. If done right, an auto painting may even spare the owner of ever having to take the car to an auto body shop for the same type of treatment in the future. This is mainly because most of the paint brands we use here at Sam’s Auto Body & Paint offer a lifetime warranty. When this lifetime warranty is combined with our extremely knowledgeable and highly skilled technicians, it leads to some of the best paint jobs in Phoenix, Arizona.

Reasons to do Auto Painting

There are countless various reasons why someone would take their car to an auto body shop for auto painting. The most obvious reason would, of course, be the fact that the car is the lucky survivor of a collision and it needs some touching up. When it comes to scratching and areas with chipped paint, auto painting becomes really tricky. First of all, we need to match the color of your car.

Paint Blending

This means that most of the times we even have to contact the manufacturer so that we can order the same type of paint. Second of all, in auto painting, there is a technique that is called paint blending, a technique that seems to be ignored by most auto painting shops. Basically, a skilled technician would make sure that the new coat of paint doesn’t have harsh lines or defined edges. These harsh lines make the paint job incredibly obvious, whereas if the paint is properly blended, the car will look as good as new.

Weather damage

One other reason why people resort to auto painting for their cars is weather damage. When a car spends most of its time outside in the sun and rain, its paint can fade and lose shine. However, there is no need to feel sorry for it, because it can be fixed by our amazing auto painting technicians. No matter why or how you want to change the paint on your car, all you need to do is give us a call and we will take care of the rest!
