WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PAINT PROTECTION FILM?

Paint Protection Film, also known as clear bra, stone guard, or simply put; PPF is a transparent film that is applied to the painted surfaces of a car to protect the paint from damage caused by rocks, sand, and other road debris. The film is made of a tough and durable urethane material that is nearly invisible once installed, it can also help preserve the appearance and value of your vehicle by keeping the paint looking newer longer.

Here are a few benefits and considerations to keep in mind when choosing to have paint protection film applied on your car:

1. Protects against chips and scratches: One of the main benefits of PPF is that it helps to protect your car’s paint from chips and scratches caused by rocks and other debris. This is especially useful for drivers who frequently drive on our dreaded 400 series highways, visitors to cottage country or areas with a lot of construction.

2. Virtually invisible: When installed by a professional, PPF is very hard to detect on the vehicle surface. Let us elaborate here, when you install PPF on a full panel it is very hard to tell if it is paint or film. However, if it is, you opt to have a partial install completed. There is going to be a line and it will become even more present when the vehicle is dirty.

3. Easy to clean: The film has a smooth surface that is easy to clean and maintain. This means that you can easily remove dirt, grime, and other contaminants from the film without damaging the paint underneath.

4. Durable: PPF is extremely durable and can last for several years with proper care. In fact, many manufacturers offer different film thicknesses. That can fit your driving needs. For example, are you someone that frequently uses the highways to get around? Then you may think to have high impact areas like your front bumper wrapped with a 10 mil PPF. It’s slightly more expensive to have installed, but it works like a charm for heavy highway drivers.

5. Cost consideration: “It’s an investment!” The cost of PPF can vary depending on the size of your vehicle and the amount of coverage you need. Do you want a matte finish? Or maybe something more to your personality, like red? Will it be a custom install or computer-cut patterns? Or even a mix of both? All of these questions and vehicle coverage options will determine the end price for your installation. And while we are on the topic of cost, remember when you’re shopping around. Shops will all have different prices to offer you. As not all shops are created equal, some shops are in areas where rent is high or a number of employees or other reasons as to why their prices are high or low. The key is the number of years of experience the installer or business has and what their service warranty is. (This is clutch!)

6. General Maintenance: While PPF is relatively low maintenance, it is important to know that the film will not just take care of itself. Some general maintenance steps are required to ensure that it remains in good condition for as long as possible. Things like removing bird bombs and bug guts from the surface in a timely manner will ensure the protein will not etch into the film. However, please ensure to only do this when the surface of the film is cool to the touch.

7. Appearance: While the film is nearly invisible once installed, it can sometimes have a slightly different appearance than the paint underneath. This is particularly noticeable in direct sunlight or under certain lighting conditions.

Overall, paint protection film is a great way to protect your car’s paint from chips, scratches, and UV damage. It is a durable, low-maintenance solution that can help preserve the value of your vehicle and keep it looking newer for longer.

Fabian is AMAZING!! On my first visit with my brand new Tesla he noticed a small dent on the fender. He asked me to reach out to Tesla to fix that issue. Without him I wouldn't notice that dent. After Tesla fixed that issue, he noticed that they oversprayed the paint on certain parts of my car. I went back to the body shop to fix everything according to the standard. Fabian is super professional and he is so knowledgeable on what he is doing. He did an amazing job Tint all the windows and PPF. The car looks amazing.  I will definitely come back with my next car purchase.

Fabian came highly recommended by a friend and was excellent to deal with. I had my brand new 2022 Tesla Model Y Performance tinted with PPF applied (partial frontal) and he did an amazing job. Super knowledgeable on types of films, tinting, Tesla in general. Was really helpful, informative and patient while I asked about different types of wraps, etc. Would certainly recommend and revisit with my next vehicle purchase. Everything was handled in a timely manor.

Stopped in during the Spring Time for nice clean up after a messy Winter. Fabian was able to book me in for a light polish with Ceramic hydrate and the Dialed In Interior Detail package. I was very impressed and super happy to see the paint really pop after the service. My car looked and felt brand new again. Fabian noticed a small chip on the rear bumper and corrected that for me. It is alway great when other people comment on how nice the car and the interior look after 4 years of ownership. Highly recommend Fabian for any Films, coatings and detailing. Pricing was great too!

I went to Evelyn Protective Films & Coatings to get my windows tinted and my vehicle detailed and it was simply a great experience! From the extremely intuitive website, to my first phone call with Fabian, I felt confident in my choice. Fabian was patient and thorough in answering my questions, addressing my concerns and providing additional suggestions for me to consider. Once I arrived for my appointment, I was pleasantly surprised with the extreme cleanliness of the facility (because this is usually NOT the case, if we’re being honest!). When my vehicle was ready, Fabian went through the aftercare process, what to expect and followed up within 24 hours to ensure I was satisfied. He’s extremely professional and well versed in his craft. I would definitely recommend Evelyn Protective Films & Coatings!

I brought my new Tesla to Evelyn Protection Films & Coating for PPF installation and interior protection coating. It was my first time doing PPF, so I had no idea what to really expect. Thankfully Fabian is amazing and personable; he's super patient and guided me through the entire process. He also did a fantastic job w/ both the PPF and the coating; the level of craftsmanship of the finished product really speaks for itself (I know because I'm a perfectionist). Also, I've experienced a couple of issues on two separate occasions after the installation. On both accounts, Fabian was very attentive and went above & beyond to help me resolve them. With many business nowadays, I find that what drives them is the underlying monetary transaction. The part I appreciate the most about Fabian is the fact that he is not only about business, he actually cares and makes a conscientious effort in building/maintaining relationships. His values really transcends to the way he manages his business; by focusing on 1) the underlying craftsmanship of the product & service and 2) the entire client journey/experience, including post installation support. I'm really thankful I went w/ Evelyn (and met Fabian) and I can't wait to bring in my next car into the shop! =)

I went with Evelyn Protective Films and Coatings based on google reviews and can now add to the hype of this excellent business. I sought out their services for window tinting and paint protection film. Both turned out great with Fabian's extreme attention to detail, strong history of experience, and excellent customer support. He followed up weeks after service and payment to see how everything was holding up. Not a single complaint, all positive with this business and I strongly believe you will be getting what you pay for here. Thank you Fabian! I will continue to recommend your business to friends and family.
