Should you get PPF for your Tesla?
If you are looking for best protection for your Tesla, paint protection will extend the life of the resale value as well as give it a whole new look. The Tesla community knows how important it is to keep your Tesla looking new and save you money in the long run. PPF should be a priority upgrade after purchasing and receiving delivery of your new Tesla. The quality of the paint is unfortunately not as top knotch as the car itself. Although this paint is thin and comes with issues like chipping, there are measures that can be taken to mitigate them. The most common thing seen with the paint on Tesla’s is the tendency to rock chips at a faster rate than other manufacturers. Here are the benefits of applying paint protection film to your Tesla.
Benefits of Paint Protection Film-Reasons why you should protect your Tesla with PPF
Applying paint protection to your Tesla will keep it looking newer for longer. We recommend applying paint protection film to your Tesla as soon as you get the car. Often Tesla owners see damage to the paint due to the type of paint that is applied. It is best if the car is brand new to avoid any paint chips that might be visible after the PPF is applied. Once the damage is caused to the vehicle after it has been driven unprotected, the paint chips will need to be repaired before starting the application process. The blemish will then be noticeable and we cannot guarantee that the marks won’t be visible after the PPF has been applied. If the car is brand new when the PPF is applied, your Tesla will hold its resale value for longer and keep it looking new for an extended period of time.
With proper care, paint protection film is durable and can last for years. A simple wash and hand dry will help keep the PPF intact and maintained. It is resistant to yellowing which is a typical problem with traditional wax. Your paint protection film comes with a 10 year warranty, covering any defects or issues that you may come across. This gives our clients peace of mind knowing that their investment is protected in the long run.It will be cheaper in the long run. Although paint protection film will come as an added cost, applying could save you money down the road. Applying PPF to your Tesla will eliminate the need to frequently repaint or get paint correction done. PPF provides long term protection, reducing maintenance time and other expenses to the exterior of your Tesla. A typical paint job can range from 5k-10k depending on the damage. PPF application will save you money in the long run.
Paint protection film is not permanent. PPF can be removed if you change your mind or wish to change the color of your vehicle. Similar to tint removal, it can be easily removed. Since the paint protection film isn’t chemically bonded to the paint of your Tesla, it can be removed by one of our certified installers. It can also be removed even if you have ceramic applied to the surface.
Protect your Tesla against scratches. A great way to prevent scratches and swirl marks on the paint of your Tesla is to get paint protection film applied. PPF has self-healing properties that protect against minor scratches and swirls. Taking these preventive measures is less expensive and proven more effective than removing blemishes once the paint is damaged. When the sun’s rays heat it up or warm water is poured on it it will activate the self-healing properties of this technology. Paint protection film is versatile in that it can be applied to various parts of the car such as the mirrors, door handles, headlights, and door edges maintaining the luster of the original paint color.
Prevent fading from long exposure to the sun. Unless your car is always in a garage, exposure to the sun is inevitable which will eventually cause the paint on your car to fade. You do not always have control over where you park and the paint may not fade evenly. Down the road, the paint will need to be corrected or even repainted. Paint protection film has a chemical property the resist UV radiation which will give you longer protection from fading. Along with protecting it from UV rays, it can also keep rain, especially acid rain, away from your paint. Acid rain can corrode your paint and potentially the metal that lies underneath. This is another important reason why you should get PPF applied to your Tesla, to not just protect the exterior of your car from fading but also corrosion.
Stealth is available. Looking for a matte finish? If you would like to change the look and texture of your vehicle but still have the protection of your paint, we also carry Stealth PPF which is a matte finish. It holds the same properties as the Ultimate without the shiny finish. If you car is a bit older and has some blemishes that cannot be removed with a new paint job, stealth could potentially minimize those defects and protect your vehicle from further damage.
The edges are tucked in for a more seamless look. Our certified installers have cracked the code on a “seamless” look. They are experts in tucking in the PPF so that the joints and edges are not left with a line that could eventually build up dirt and leave a “seam.”
