A lot of consumers purchase road hazard protection for their tires, but they don’t worry about getting that same type of protection for the rest of their vehicle. Objectively, that doesn’t make a lot of sense since the painted surfaces can cost quite a bit to repair. Small rocks, trash, debris and the salt and chemicals that are used on the roads during winter weather can all be hard on the paint of any vehicle. Even though the tires are the first point of contact, these road hazards are often tossed up onto the paint from the tires’ rotating motion. However, paint protection is available to keep your car looking brand new!
One of the most problematic types of road hazard involves trees and their branches. Not only can smaller branches in the roadway scratch the paint as they are moved around by the tires, but low-hanging trees and those that extend into narrow roadways can scratch the paint on nearly any vehicle that doesn’t have proper protection. Just like the right type of window film can keep the interior of your car looking new and unfaded, good quality paint protection can help your vehicle keep that great-looking, shiny finish.
There are all types of reasons that metal can end up in the road. It can be everything from a screw or nail that came from a construction site to a piece that came off of another vehicle or even out of the back of a pickup or garbage truck. But with the right paint protection kit, you can reduce the chances of those pieces of metal harming your vehicle. Small, light scratches can be easily buffed out, while deeper scratches and chips are going to be much more noticeable. Cars that lack paint protection often end up chipped and dinged — ultimately making them look older and in bad shape well before their time.
Metal and trees aren’t the only concerns for drivers who navigate the roadways. Many different kinds of various trash can end up in the road, and even something that seems light and relatively harmless can scratch your vehicle if you don’t have paint protection. Wood, plastic and even the salt that is used on the roads when they’re icy and snowy can cause harm to a car’s paint. By using paint protection, avoiding road hazards as much as possible and keeping your vehicle clean, especially in the winter months, you can keep your car’s tires and painted surfaces looking great.
