What Is Satin Auto Paint?

Satin is a low gloss finish.  Between shiny and flat. This type of finish gives your car a modern, sleek, and luxurious look.

Why would you want to have your car painted satin?

If you want to give your car a different look without going too crazy, this custom paint finish is a good idea.  This type of finish requires the same care as a shiny finish.  You’ll want to use products specially formulated for this type of finish and it should last the life of your car.

The Satin Paint Finish Process

Your car will go through all the regular steps of the auto paint process, the only difference is the custom paint finish.  Check out our gallery or before and after pictures here.

“Long overdue review but better late than never! Took my Infiniti G35 sedan here before for a complete paint job since the original clear coat was peeling in several locations and it was time for a refresh. Ended up painting the car satin black. Jaider was more than helpful and had the vehicle complete in a timely manner despite being a busy shop! Great shop, I have several friends that had work done to their vehicles here as well and looked flawless. Would highly recommend getting work done here whether it be insurance or aftermarket/custom related.”

Ourestimates are always free and you are welcome to come by our shop anytime or make an appointment.  We know that many clients like the convenience of sending pictures of their car and request an estimate; but, in reality an estimate by this means is not really reliable.  Why?  Because the estimate will either be too high or too low.  In order to assess the damage and give an estimate, a car needs to be seen by a professional and in person.  This insures that the estimate is as accurate as possible, not too high or too low.  For more information click here.
