A Craft Few Have Perfected

Remember how good your car’s finish looked when you first saw it on the showroom floor? The depth and gloss of the paint are what made you fall in love with the car in the first place, and it is precisely that which draws the most attention. Sure your car’s finish may still shine, but shine means nothing without the depth and clarity that only comes from proper machine polishing performed by an Advanced Paint Correction Specialist (like ESOTERIC).

Paint correction (swirl removal), is a labor-intensive process utilizing nano-technology abrasives (compounds and polishes). The art of safe, modern, and proper buffing techniques is what separates the true professional detailer from all the rest, and it is a skill-set that is mastered by very few. At ESOTERIC, we not only teach the latest techniques and processes to other professional detailers from around the world, but we also spend a lot of time fixing work that was done incorrectly by unskilled buffer operators from other detailers, body shops, manufacturers, and dealership prep departments.

In addition to all of the detailing packages listed below, we highly recommend the addition of one of our Protective Coatings application to help maintain your new finish for an extended period!

To give a few examples of the before and after difference of proper paint correction, please refer to the photos below:

Paint Correction Packages

The ESOTERIC – Single Stage Paint Correction

Most Popular 

$800/$1,000 (SUV & Exotics)

As the name suggests, this level of paint correction utilizes just one stage of machine polishing (also referred to as one-step polishing). While not considered a “perfection detail” given the single stage process, a big transformation in the condition of the paint can be achieved. On softer paints, we can usually remove 50-80% of all swirls, haze, and light defects, whereas, on harder paints, this could be 40-60%. There are a lot of different variables that dictate just how much correction that you can safely achieve in a one-step process, and we approach each car and paint system accordingly to maximize results for the given budget or goals. There is no one system or product that works for all vehicles, and we are well-versed in all the modern polishes and techniques so that each vehicle can be tailored to accordingly.

  • The Signature Hand Wash
  • Single Stage Paint Correction is performed using a dual action (D/A) random orbital and polish. Extensive testing goes into each car to identify the optimal combination that will deliver the highest-quality results.
  • Hand-applied German-made premium paint sealant. In lieu of paint sealant, the customer can upgrade to one of our durable coating services for an additional charge.

The ESOTERIC Premier – Multi-Stage Paint Correction

Starting at $1,500/ $3000 (SUV & Exotics)

When you step up to the realm of multi-stage paint correction, you’re significantly improving the finish by removing all of the swirls, and all but the heaviest of scratches and defects. The photo examples above (before and after images) are of the multi-stage process and as you can see, the transformation is significant. This process starts with a heavy compounding machine polishing stage to remove the defects and then followed by a secondary polishing stage to refine the finish and increase gloss and clarity. Given the differences in paint types, condition, and size of vehicles, the rate for the Multi-Stage Paint Correction varies, but we will consult with each vehicle owner to provide a more precise pricing structure. The paint type and condition will also dictate the level of correction, but typically this process on most cars will get rid of 85-95% of all defects. And at this level of correction, you’re getting very close to that of a brand new vehicle without the expense of a re-paint!
