Paint Correction Rochester, Minnesota

Welcome to Med City Detail in Rochester, Minnesota – your industry leader for comprehensive Paint Corrections. Our years of experience and top-notch equipment ensure a perfect balance between safety and effectiveness. We’re committed to helping you make your car the showstopper you’ve always wanted it to be.

How do we accomplish this?


Our process involves three core stages:


Inspection and Decontamination: Before any correction equipment touches your vehicle, we carry out an extensive inspection followed by an exterior decontamination. This process ensures that your paint is entirely free of waxes or filling products, essentially making it a blank canvas.


Paint Measurement: We then measure your paint thickness using our electronic paint depth gauge. This meticulous approach sets us apart and underlines our commitment to safeguarding the integrity of your vehicle’s paintwork.


Use of Rhopoint DOI Meter: We stand out in the industry by utilizing the Rhopoint DOI Meter in our paint corrections. This advanced device removes any guesswork, allowing us to identify the precise corrections required in the paint. Factors like Haze, Reflected Image Quality, Distinctiveness of Image, and Orange Peel are measured both before and after the correction process. This way, we can provide clear, quantifiable data about the improvements we’ve achieved.

/ Single Stage Correction

After initial prep and measurements, we run a test section to determine the best combination of pads and polish to rectify defects and finish cleanly. The DOI meter helps us detect minor changes hard for the human eye to notice. On average, we can achieve a 70% correction rate depending on paint hardness. Once completed, we apply a one-year ceramic coating, which can be upgraded to a three-year or lifetime coating at your discretion.

/ Multi-stage Correction

Vehicles with deeper scratches and swirls may require our Two-Stage Paint Correction. This service typically yields a 95%+ correction rate. After the initial prep, we perform a compounding stage using a dual-action non-forced rotation polisher, followed by a final polishing stage. Given that every vehicle’s paint is unique, we recommend consulting with us before providing an estimate.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is automotive paint correction and why might my vehicle need it?

Automotive paint correction is a process that involves removing imperfections in a vehicle’s paintwork, such as swirl marks, scratches, oxidation, and other blemishes. It’s typically recommended for vehicles with paintwork that has lost its luster or has minor surface damage that detracts from its appearance.

How does paint correction differ from a simple polish or wax?

Paint correction is a more thorough and restorative process compared to a standard polish or wax. While polishing or waxing can temporarily improve the shine and offer some protection, paint correction aims to remove imperfections from the paint’s surface, resulting in a more permanent improvement in the vehicle’s finish.

Can all scratches and blemishes be removed with paint correction?

Paint correction can remove a wide range of imperfections, especially those that haven’t penetrated the clear coat of the paint. Deeper scratches that go through the clear coat may not be fully correctable, but our team at Med City Detail can assess the damage and suggest the best course of action.

How long does paint correction take?

The time it takes to complete paint correction can vary significantly based on the size of the vehicle and the severity of the imperfections. It’s a meticulous process that shouldn’t be rushed. Generally, it could take anywhere from 1-5 days to complete.

Is paint correction a one-time process or will it need to be repeated?

Paint correction is typically a one-time process. However, the longevity of the results will depend on how the vehicle is maintained, the environment it’s exposed to, and how it’s used. To maintain the finish, regular washes and protective treatments like wax or ceramic coatings are recommended.

Will paint correction change the color of my paint?

No, paint correction will not change the color of your vehicle. It will remove imperfections and restore the original color and clarity of the paint, often making it brighter and more vibrant due to the removal of oxidation and scratches.

How should I maintain my car after getting paint correction done?

Post-paint correction, it’s important to maintain your vehicle with regular washing and by applying a protective wax or sealant. Avoid automatic car washes with abrasive brushes and opt for hand washing or touchless options to keep the finish looking its best.
