Ceramic coatings are a popular choice among car enthusiasts today, and if you’ve ever done any research on how to maintain a car, we’re sure you’ve heard about them before (I mean, that’s probably why you’re reading this article right now). You want to know, is a ceramic coating really worth it?
Yes, ceramic coatings can be one of the most expensive options when it comes to protectively coating your car. In a lot of cases, getting a ceramic coating is absolutely worth the price. If you’ve spent a fortune finally getting your dream car, what’s a little more spent on protecting it to the best of your ability? Today, we’ll look at a few reasons why ceramic coatings are worth it.
Ceramic coatings are made to last. While there are four main types of ceramic coatings available on the market, each one can typically last anywhere between two to five years if applied and maintained properly. This amount of time also neatly coincides with how long a car owner will keep a vehicle before trading in.
Better Overall Protection
With a ceramic coating you will have much better surface protection when compared with a regular sealant, or wax. Your vehicle will not suffer from small scratches or dents as easily as it would without any coating. It will also repel dirt, water, bird droppings and prevent UV damage from the sun. On top of that, a ceramic coating will help to prevent swirl marks and marring from washing your car.
Choosing a ceramic coating over other types of coating will result in less routine service and maintenance. Washing a vehicle that has been coated with ceramic is very easy as well. In most cases, the dirt and dust can be rinsed off without any agitation and then the car will be able to be completely dry in minutes.
Your car will pretty much be showroom ready at any moment. Once you apply a ceramic coating your vehicle will have the brilliance and luster of a car that has just been detailed even if you haven’t washed it for a month. This is because of the coating’s hydrophobic properties that help repel dirt away.
Peace of Mind
You can sleep better at night knowing that your most prized investment is protected and safe.
