I Have A New Car, Should I Get My Car Ceramic Coated?

Yes, brand new vehicles that just came off the lot will most likely need a light polish to remove light swirls. When cars are brought to a dealership, they'll often run them through an automatic car wash, leaving micro- scratches in the paint. Our paint correction removes these.
Once the paint is back to perfection, you should get your car ceramic coated to protect the paint of your new vehicle for years to come. So it'll always look like it just came off the showroom floor.

“Dean did a fantastic job on my F250 and my wife’s Yukon Denali…which is black and anyone that has had a black vehicle knows what I mean. We could not be happier and highly recommended he and his services.”

Rose G.

“Great job Bithell’s Garage. Consistently giving my vehicles what they need. Great service and easy to book. Fair pricing as well. A lot of these places will over charge you for work with less quality. Others will tell you they can do it for cheaper but don’t compare.

5 stars from me.”

David V.

“Dean worked on my 1962 Chevy Impala after a new paint job. My painter is a painter, not a polisher, so I went to Dean to finish the job.

Dean cut and polished the paint and did an amazing job! Got rid of orange peel and swirls and made the paint shiny and clean. Amazing work ethic and was honest with me about me not needing Ceramic coating when he could have recommended it and made more money. Solid guy, and great service. Couldn’t recommend him more.”

Natasha M.

“Great guy and incredible detailed work. My vehicle looks better than when I bought it brand new off the lot.”


Ceramic Coatings, also called Glass Coatings or Quartz Coatings, are the most capable form of protection from UV and Chemical Damage we can utilize. The bonding molecule that provides the protection is SiO2, or Silica Dioxide. A solvent carrier is used to apply the SiO2 to the paint and other surfaces. The solvent evaporates out and leaves the SiO2 behind to cure and bond to the surface.
Unfortunately there is a bit of irresponsible marketing in the Coating world. Coatings are not thick enough nor hard enough to withstand scratches from say a dirty wash mitt, a key, or a rock chip. They do produce a slightly harder surface than the paint itself, but not enough to withstand this type of damage. The 9h Hardness measure that is used describes the Coating’s “vertical hardness”, or its ability to withstand penetration from UV and chemical damage and keep it from reaching the paints finish. That is what we are asking Coatings to do. We coat cars so that they still look good years down the road, and do not suffer from the slow roll of UV and environmental contamination that degrades the finish. Where a Coating can play in to scratch resistance is by producing and extremely repellent and slick surface, so that the surface lets go of loose dirt that you would otherwise move across the paint when washing and minimize the friction between the dirt, your wash mitt, and the paint.
The chemical makeup of Ceramic Coatings does three very important things differently than that of a wax or sealant. Firstly, it is capable of bonding to the surface underneath for a matter of years where we see a few months out of most waxes or sealants. Secondly, the chemical makeup of the Ceramic Coating is able to withstand penetration of UV and harmful environmental contaminants to keep your paints finish from degrading over time due to exposure. Thirdly, the Coating produces a highly repellent surface, where dirt and contaminant is rejected instead of absorbed in to the surface. This keeps the surfaces cleaner longer and makes regular wash maintenance very easy and safe.If you’re interested in booking an automotive ceramic coating from our Queensbury facility, simply select your preferred package above.
The durability of any Ceramic Coating is directly related to two things. First, how and where the vehicle in question lives its life. Is it a California car that sees perfect weather or a Upstate New York car that will see all four seasons? Is it a weekend toy or is it a daily driver? Where the car lives and the environment it is exposed to plays heavily in to any Coatings durability. The more intense the environment it is exposed to the less durability we can expect. The kinder the environment the more durability we can expect. Secondly, is the maintenance program the car enjoys. All Ceramic Paint Coatings require a bit of maintenance. If the car is kept clean where dirt and contaminant is not able to build up on the surface over several weeks or months and the Coating is kept healthy then we will see extended durability. There is no one size fits all and there are no permanent coatings.
Every service has a DIY equivelent. So of course you can do it yourself. Will the results be similar is the real question however. Consumer grade coatings come in a wide range of qualities that don’t need to meet the discerning expectations of professional detailers. They may last less time, or not perform as well in some cases. In other cases the solvents may damage your paint, trim or be hazardous to your health to apply. A larger portion of the process comes down to the quality of prep work performed as well. Results are going to be greatly dependent on how good you can get the paint clean of any surface contamination as well as appearance before sealing it in. If you make mistakes or leave high spots and haze, it may be costly to have that repaired by professional detailer, even more costly than the initial installation would have cost due to needing to remove the coating. Choosing a professional will allow you the peace of mind to know it will be done right the first time and your car will be protected.
