What is detailing?
Detailing is not just a wash. It is the process by which a car is thoroughly cleaned, polished, and protected, both inside and out, to produce a show-quality appearance. Where exterior details focus on bringing back the shine and gloss to the car’s paintwork, an interior detail deep cleans all of the normal carpeted areas. You can go so far as to deep clean the engine to reach that as new show-quality clean many enthusiasts strive for.
How are my services different from what others offer?
When Vital was started, its owners were focused on one goal: to offer a place that will take care of amazing vehicles, as well as the owners, do themselves. We take pride in our work and it shows in the reflection of every car we touch.
How long does it take?
There is no single answer to this question. We will give you an estimated completion time for the detail. Hyper and Ultra services are usually same-day turnaround, Steampunk and our Legendary line of polishing details usually take a couple of days depending on the scope.
How much does it cost?
As all of our details are more than just a "wash" each vehicle is different and each owner has a different "need" out of the detail, all pricing listed on the Pricing Tables page is general starting prices in a best-case scenario for the detail. If the car has an excessive amount of contaminants or has paint that needs special attention to get the desired results. The price for Your vehicle will differ based on YOUR needs, please Contact Us to schedule a consultation.
What are paint ceramic coating systems?
Coating systems are permanent or semi-permanent coatings for your vehicle surfaces typically developed from SiO2/Ti02 or "Ceramic Glass". They offer far more protection from the elements than waxes and sealants and have incredible gloss when desired. VAS uses Ceramic Pro as their Coating system and has upgrades available for just about ALL of our details. From 1 year to Lifetime protection!
What is clay bar?
Clay bar is an engineered putty used to remove contaminants from paint, metal, or glass surfaces. We use this to prepare the surface for polishing or a fresh coat of wax. If your paint no longer feels like glass, then it is time to clay.
What is paint correction/restoration?
It is the process in which the imperfections in the car’s paint are to be removed. This process removes swirls, etching, oxidation, and other day-to-day external pollutants from the paint’s finish. Unlike many of the “swirl remover” products that exist, we use only the products that can actually fix the problem, not just fill them in temporarily. Because we do not fill surface defects, but actually level the flaws with micro-abrasive polishes and clean quality pads, the surface will stay looking great for a very long time, as long as it is kept clean the right way.
What products do you use?
While we primarily use KocheChemie & Shine Supply products for detailing and Ceramic Pro or Feynlab for ceramic or self-healing coatings, we also use a large selection of products from the following manufacturers: American Detailer Garage, Autofiber, Meguiar's, Menzerna, Pinnacle, Sonax, 3M, Cobra, Lake Country, Leatherique, Poorboy's, Flex, Porter-Cable and more.
