Just The Numbers: PPF Vs Respraying

Just the Numbers: PPF vs Respraying

In this post, we do a straight up comparison of the costs of respraying a vehicle that has incurred common road damage with the cost of investing in paint protection film as a preventative measure.

At Tint View, we field questions from clients every day about the value of our products verses the cost of body work on damaged vehicle paint jobs. Sometimes it can seem hard to quantify the value of paint protection films, but a recent side-by-side comparison made by one of our clients shows that it pays huge dividends to protect your paint instead of waiting to repair it once it is damaged.

The Cost of Respraying Rock Chips

After contacting multiple body shops across the Greater Toronto Area we put together an average quote for front end respraying of a compact car that was damaged with rock chips, swirl marks, and general road rash from normal use (no major dents or scrapes). Here is how the respraying costs break down:

Cost of hood respraying: $550
Cost of fender respraying: $350 per side = $700

Total Respraying Cost: $1250

It is important to note that these prices were for a basic black paint job, and adding a metallic or pearl paint colour would increase this price by up to $300.

Cost of Road Guard™ Paint Protection Film

Customers that opt for a Road Guard ™ Paint Protection Film package receive films that are custom cut specifically to the make and model of their vehicle. A standard package will give you coverage on your hood, fenders, mirrors, and headlamps, protecting your most vulnerable areas from rock chips and road rash. Here is how the cost breaks down:

Standard Package For Cars

Invisible protective films covering the hood, fenders, mirrors, and headlamps

Standard Protection Cost: $750

Total Savings From Paint Protection: $500!

This represents a 40% savings for the customer, saves tons of time and energy compared to finding a body shop that can schedule in for a major vehicle repainting, and helps your vehicle to retain its resale value for years to come. Road Guard ™ protective films are washable, wax-able, and even removable with no damage ever done to your paint job. When you break it down, it is such an easy call, especially for a new vehicle.

When it comes to something this important, you need to talk to the experts. Simply give us a call or swing by the shop.
