Protective Films VS Repainting Costs
Which represents a better value? A Case Study

At Diversity Auto Films, we field questions from clients every day about the value of our services verses the cost of body work on damaged vehicle paint jobs. Sometimes it can seem hard to quantify its value, but a recent side by side comparison made by one of our clients shows that it pays huge dividends to protect your paint instead of waiting to repair it once it is damaged.

The cost of respraying rock chips

After calling multiple body shops in the Victoria area we put together an average quote for front end respraying of a compact car that was damaged with rock chips, swirl marks, and general road rash from normal use (no major dents or scrapes). Here is how the respraying costs break down:

Cost of hood respraying: $550
Cost of fender respraying: $350 per side = $700

Total Respraying Cost: $1250

It is important to note that these prices were for a basic black paint job, and adding a metallic or pearl paint colour would increase this price by up to $300.

Cost of Stone Guard™ Paint Protection Film

Customers that opt for a Stone Guard ™ Paint Protection Film package receive films that are custom cut specifically to the make and model of their vehicle. Our “Highway Package” gives you coverage on your hood, fenders, mirrors, and headlamps, protecting your most vulnerable areas from rock chips and road rash. Here is how the cost breaks down:

“Standard Package” For Cars

Invisible protective films covering the
Hood, Fenders, Mirrors, and Headlamps

Total Protection Cost: $750

Total Savings From Paint Protection: $500!

This represents a 40% savings for the customer, saves tons of time and energy compared to finding a body shop that can schedule in for a major vehicle repainting, and helps your vehicle to retain its resale value for years to come. Stone Guard ™ protective films are washable, waxable, and even removable with no damage ever done to your paint job. When you break it down, it is such an easy call, especially for a new vehicle.
