The Small Shop Advantage for a Quality Paint Job
Quite often a production shop will hire young, inexperienced workers at minimum wage to do the tedious labor needed to get a car ready for painting and quite often don’t give them the time to do the best job possible. At Richland Collision services the best, most experienced painter in the house will be doing much of the prep work and working alongside the less experienced workers making sure it’s done right and done well. That’s the advantage of working with a smaller, lower volume shop. The best painter in a higher volume shop has his expertise spread out over several cars so most of the work gets done by the rookies, if the most experienced guy even gets involved with the prep work. He may have his hands full just being behind the spray gun all day long.
A Quality Paint Job Requires Quality Prep Work
Any auto painting or body shop will tell you the thing that makes the biggest difference in your paint job is not what you see when the job is done. What makes the biggest difference is the work that goes into your paint job before the paint is applied, whether it be getting every last bit of rust removed or making sure the body filler is sanded even with the undamaged metal and is sanded in such a way as to not leave sanding marks that can show through the paint.
At Richland Collision Services we have our best workers doing the prep work as well as applying the paint. That’s your small shop advantage for getting a quality paint job for your car.
