Here at Rodz Tint Shop, we understand that you depend on your car to go about your daily routine, so you need to keep it in good working order. On top of that, you most likely care about how your car looks and want to keep it looking great for years to come. If you want to preserve your car’s shine, one step you can take is to have paint protection film applied. In this article, our team will go over more about this product and how it works in order to show you why it’s a worthwhile investment.
What is Paint Protection Film?
Paint protection film consists of a thin, transparent polymer or polyurethane sheet that is applied to your car’s body panels. As the name states, this film is designed to protect the car’s body and paint from a wide variety of damaging forces, including scratches from rocks and other road debris, as well as more gradual damage in the form of UV fading.
How Much Does Paint Protection Film Cost?
When it comes to prices, the paint protection film itself and the tools to apply it will typically run you just a few hundred dollars. For best results, however, our team recommends against taking a DIY approach, and instead having the job done by professionals who have experience with the process. Depending on how much of the vehicle you want to protect, you can expect to pay anywhere from $1,300 for just the clear bra (the front bumper, rear bumper, side mirrors, and the hood) to $7,000 for the whole car.
Is Paint Protection Film Worth It?
While it is definitely a serious investment for some, in our experience, paint protection film is definitely worth the cost. Although the upfront cost seems high, the film itself can help prevent thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to your car over the next several years. On top of that, it adds value to your car should you decide to sell it, making it a wise investment all around.
