PPF is a Solid Investment
A small investment in PPF will have you reaping the rewards down the road.
No one understands the love and pride you feel for your vehicle better than we do. Unfortunately, despite your best efforts in keeping your vehicle away from harm, your vehicle is still exposed to numerous external environmental factors every day. Even the most careful river in the world can’t guarantee that their car won’t fall victim to an errant rock or out-of-control grocery cart. So what is there to do? When ultimate vehicle protection is the question, paint protection films are the answer.
Is PPF a Good Investment?
With the huge number of aftermarket vehicle modifications out there, we know that it’s important to separate the ones that will improve your car and increase its value, and the ones that area. Waste of your time and money. Here are 7 reasons why we think it’s a good idea to invest in paint protection films
Chemical damage is one of the worst assailants that your car must endure on a day-to-day basis. Things like tree sap, bird droppings, falling berries, and acid rain are all acidic and will break down your paint. PPF is resistant to chemical damage meaning that, where film has been applied, your paint can’t be harmed by these agents.
Adding such a strong layer of protection will also help your car resist abrasion, chips, and dings. If your car encounters a flying chunk of road debris, the PPF will absorb the impact and keep your paint safe. That is why we recommend having it applied to the areas of your car must vulnerable to this type of damage.
Self Healing Options
Many high-end paint protection films have self healing properties. That means that when exposed to heat, minor scuffs and scratches will vanish before your eyes. Different self-healing films require different types of heat; some only need to be taken outside on a warm day, some can be activated with a hair dryer or hot water, just make sure you ask your installer what option is right for your film.
PPF proves its value in two main ways. First, consider the cost of respraying a damaged body panel. When comparing the cost of a respray with the cost of installing PPF before the damage happened, the choice is obvious.
Secondly, consider that some day you might want to sell your car. On the used market, a car with a flawless exterior will command a much higher price than a car that is dinged and damaged. When the outside of your car looks beautiful, potential buyers will know that the entire vehicle was maintained to the same standard.
A surprising amount of the damage caused to most cars comes from washing. When your vehicle is protected by PPF, you don’t have to worry about causing swirl marks or other damage on the protected areas. Not only does PPF protect your car’s paint from damage, but it will also make the maintenance process easier.
Peace of Mind
Do you get a knot in your stomach when driving past a construction zone? Or when the last couple kilometres of your road trip end up being on a gravel road? With PPF, you won’t have to worry any more. PPF will protect your vehicle from the type of damage that happens as you drive through areas with high levels of road debris.
When you choose the right installer, they can guarantee that the films will be custom cut and fit to every curve, swoop, and bend of your vehicle. Modern films are incredibly flexible, so you don’t have to worry about creasing or pleating. One of the best parts about PPF is that you will probably forget it’s even there.
High quality films last a long time. That means that once you get PPF installed, you can rely on that protection for 5 to 10 years. That’s a whole lot of confidence to have for an entire decade. To make sure you get the most out of your paint protection films, make sure that you choose an experienced installer that only uses top quality products.
