Ceramic Coating Price vs Traditional Waxing & Sealants
We’ve all heard the buzz on the latest technology called Ceramic Coatings that is better than waxes and sealants in almost every way. Ceramic coating is harder, more durable, more heat tolerant, and lasts much longer for protecting your exterior paint than traditional wax or polishes, but is Ceramic Coating price affordable?
First, let’s understand what causes the paint to fade. The UV light from the sun is invisible but very powerful. When it comes in contact with the surface of the paint, that object’s
molecules receive a jolt of energy. This jolt results in molecular bonds breaking. Paint becomes less reflective and duller, transmitting less light outward that we see as color. There’s no way to reverse this from happening, so preventative care is the best approach.
A typical Wash and Wax for an average sized vehicle can cost between $100 – $300, depending on your location and the type of services you request. That is 10 – 20 % of the cost of
installing a Ceramic Coating. So! Why spend the extra money to install Ceramic Coating?
An average hand Wax will typically last on average one – three months depending on where you live and your climate. The sun’s UV rays are brutal to exterior paint, causing fading. Wax
offers minimal protection and needs a reapplication of the Wax every three months to continue protecting your exterior paint throughout the year. So, that’s an average cost of say $200, times four, that brings it to a price of $800 per year to protect your cars paint with a conventional Wax. The average person keeps their vehicle on average, six years, so, $800 times six equals $4,80
Now let's take a look at Ceramic Coating Price Advantages
Professionally installed Ceramic Coating such as Ceramic Pro 9H is essentially permanent if maintained correctly. It can only be removed by abrasion. It should require a single application over the average lifetime of ownership of your vehicle.
A one-time expense. Think of the
money you would save. Just a one-time investment of $1500 for a premium Ceramic
Coating, installation, you will save $3,300 over six years.
Let’s take a look at the comparison of Wax vs Ceramic Coating
Ceramic Paint Coatings are infinitely superior to waxes or sealants for protecting your vehicle’s exterior paint. The initial cost is higher than traditional waxing, but it will save you money in the long run over the lifetime of ownership of your vehicle.
