Keeping Your Factory Paint

The Importance of Keeping Your Factory Paint

After a big hail storm, you might walk out to your car and notice dings, scratches, gouges, and maybe even paint chips if the storm was bad enough. Some people chock all of this factory paint damage up as purely cosmetic, but if left untreated, it could present problems down the line. Here are a few reasons why it’s important to keep and protect your factory paint and why you should consider searching “hail repair near me” next time a big storm rolls through.

Factory Paint Protects Your Vehicle

Although a nice, smooth factory finish looks fantastic, it is more than just cosmetic. Your car is just a hunk of metal without your paint, and metal, when exposed to the elements like rain, dirt, and ice, can rust and corrode. Your factory paint protects the structural integrity of your vehicle, which is why it’s crucial to keep it.

It Preserves Value

Some people like buying other people’s projects, but most will always prefer factory, stock condition when buying a vehicle. While you might not see yourself selling your car soon, one day you might, and if you had resprayed your car’s paint at one point and they did a not-so-great job, it can hurt your vehicle’s value. Even if you think paint work is necessary after a hailstorm, you might be surprised what can be done without hurting your paint.

Factory Paint Typically Looks Better

Even after having your auto hail damage repaired by a professional you found when searching “hail repair near me”, the factory paint will typically look better than an aftermarket paint job. The manufacturer uses a pre-mixed paint that is hard to source, and with automated machines doing the spray work, the quality is hard to match in a small paint shop.
