Whether you want to increase your car’s resale value or you just want to restore the appearance of your car, a respray can give your vehicle a shiny and brand-new look. A huge benefit of a car respray is that you can re-establish that old sparkle and shine, however, it also gives you a much greater resale value when the time comes to sell your car.
Some people may attempt their own DIY respray, however, this is strongly advised against and you may find yourself seeking the help of professionals in the extremely likely event that you make a mistake. Visiting a professional for a car respray will give you a professional finish as we use high-quality materials and paint to give you a clean colour match. Car spray paint is also very harmful and toxic, so it’s highly recommended that you avoid carrying this out yourself!
If you’d like to find out more about car respraying, explore whether or not it’s the best option for you, or if you can’t decide between a respray or wrap, we have got you covered.
What Are the Benefits of a Car Respray?
A car respray can give your car a brand new refresh and is ideal for when the bodywork is slightly damaged or faded from sun damage. Respraying would also help make the car look like it’s in factory condition and brand new!
Not only does a car respray look great, but it is also long-lasting and durable. It can also increase your resale value, prevent rust and even repair scratches and marks
A respray can cost more than wrapping. However, you can save more money by having panels sprayed (if only some panels need bodywork repairing), instead of getting it completely wrapped or purchasing a new car altogether.
For older used cars, bubbling and peeling can often occur as well as scuffs or scratches. This is often the reason why many drivers choose to have their car resprayed.
Respray VS Wrapping
When comparing your bodywork options, another thing to consider is whether wrapping is more suitable. For damage to the paintwork or scratches of all sizes, a respray is far more suitable as you focus on the areas that need attention. Whereas, with wrapping, you would need to get the entire panel wrapped. When repairing cosmetic damage to the paintwork, a respray can not only look better but can generally last much longer than a car wrap.
While a respray is for more permanent and long-term use, wrapping is designed for short-term use and can eventually peel or bubble over time. If the vinyl wrap isn’t fitted properly, it can even rip off the paintwork underneath, which is why you should only go to a reputable workshop that uses high-quality vinyl wrap.
While car wraps are not designed to fix your paint, vinyl wrap is still a fantastic option and can give you the opportunity to experiment with a variety of textures and finishes.
If your paintwork is bad, we strongly advise you to have a respray, otherwise, your car may not accept a vinyl wrap and paint imperfections will show through. If you eventually decide to peel the wrap off, then it’s extremely likely that the paint will peel off along with the wrap.
How Much Does it Cost to Respray a Car?
The cost to have your car resprayed can vary depending on the model, accessibility of products, and whether it’s a full respray or just one panel. Typically, a car respray can start from just £500
Most customers tend to only have the damaged parts of their car repainted, so it usually comes out as the cheaper option, compared to a wrap.
If you are looking to have your car resprayed, you must ensure that the car is free of scratches, chips and dents, otherwise, we would need to remove these and repair the bodywork beforehand.
