If you’ve just driven your new car off the lot, it’s probably looking pretty great. That fancy new paint job shines in the sun, looks glossy, and makes a statement about the kind of person you are; the kind of person that buys new cars. Overtime, though, small rocks, road debris and bugs will eat away at your paint job. There’s nothing much you can do except apply some touch ups and hope no one notices. However, there is a different way.
A protective car film will keep all of this from happening. If applied before the road debris ruins your day by chipping your paint, a clear car cover, like a bra, will prevent those chips from happening in the first place. The best protective films have to ability to provide defense from things as heavy as rocks.
In terms of your paint job, bugs can also be a problem. They’re absolutely unavoidable and if you drive your car at all, you’re bound to hit a few. The acid in most bugs will erode your paint and if you ignore it, you’re bound to see some damage. Obviously there are products that will remove dead bugs from your car but wouldn’t it be easier to buy a protective film that keeps them off your paint to begin with?
Not only do you want your car to look as new as possible for as long as possible, but keeping your paint job pristine will up the resale value. Most people keep their cars for roughly five years before trading up. If you want to get the most for your money, keep your car looking great. One of the best ways to do this is by being preventative and keeping the paint as clean as possible. Protective films do that.
Car covers are readily available and generally inexpensive. Indeed, they’re much less expensive than a new paint job. The good ones come with a guarantee and are pre-cut to fit your specific car or truck. No one likes getting a full sheet of laminate they have to cut themselves. The benefits of a product like this are huge. They provide a clear, protective barrier that can not only deflect small rocks and road debris but will also keep things like bugs from ruining your paint job. If you ever want to resale your car, it’s definitely a smart idea to consider a protective film.
