Ceramic Coatings | Bellingham Washington | Gtechniq | Crystal Serum Ultra
Honestly, Gtechniq’s ceramic coatings are the best protection products I’ve ever used and the only protection used to on my own vehicles; ceramic coatings make maintenance incredibly easy, while keeping a car looking better for much longer. Crystal Serum Ultra seriously makes me smile every time I put it on a car. It’s simply an amazing product!
A lot of people ask what exactly a ceramic coating is and how it’s applied. I’m no movie producer, nor do I enjoy being in front of a camera, but below is a little video to show just how the coating is applied to a vehicle one section at a time by a professional accredited detailer. As seen, it’s relatively boring (and I don’t make it any more interesting), but there is a very definitive process that must be taken to achieve the proper results or major issues present themselves; having a professional application done by a properly trained shop is highly recommend. This was done after a full paint correction and surface prep to ensure the best bond possible.
So, there’s a lot of bad stuff out there that can harm your car’s finish and slowly remove the reflective, glossy shine it once had - and that’s if you don’t take it through the dreadful tunnel car washes which just cause more issues. Waxes and sealants help to protect, but they only do so much and are short-term solutions that need often reapplication. However, ceramic coatings are far superior in every facet, and I believe Gtechniq’s Crystal Serum Ultra is the best option available. It is an extraordinarily hydrophobic, extremely slick, high-gloss, very durable layer of protection. It creates amazing looks, amazing protection, and amazingly easy maintenance!!
***ALL PRICES AND PACKAGES LISTED BELOW ARE FOR THE CERAMIC COATING SERVICES ONLY AND MUST BE PAIRED WITH A MNIMUM OF THE STAGE 2 DETAIL (if you have a brand new car, we can discuss other options).
All ceramic coatings come with a maintenance care bucket ($100+ value) to aid in properly caring for your coating.
Starts at $1250 on Coupes
For those that don't want to have to worry about what to add on and what to leave unprotected, this protection package takes care of it all. Every square inch of the exterior of your vehicle is left with at least one layer of Gtechniq ceramic coatings. It starts with our exclusive Crystal Serum Ultra and that is topped with EXO ceramic coating for even more protection and hydrophobic properties on all painted surfaces, headlights, taillights, smooth trim, and exhaust tips. All wheels get a healthy dose of C5 Wheel Armour, all windows are protected with G1 Smart Glass (3 coats on the windshield) and any porous trim gets C4 Trim Restorer and Protection. If you want it all and want the best protection, this is it.
Starts at $800 on Coupes
All paint, headlights, taillights, exhaust tips, and smooth trim is ceramic coated with our exclusive Crystal Serum Ultra - which I truly believe to be the best coating available on the market.. The windshield also receives three layers of G1 glass coating to protect it and make it extremely hydrophobic.
Starts at $300 on Coupes
All paint, headlights, taillights, exhaust tips and smooth trim is ceramic coated with Gtechniq EXO. It is our shorter term introductory ceramic coating that creates exceptional hydrophobic properties (how well it beads water), while providing excellent protection - far better than any wax or sealant. If washed using proper methods (i.e. no drive-thru car washes, proper kinds of soaps) then you should be able to see up to two years of longevity out of it.
C5 Wheel Armour
Starts at $150+
Wheel Armour chemically bonds to your wheels creating an extremely durable coat of protection that effectively repels brake dust and makes keeping your wheels clean much easier. Prices vary based on the size and complexity of the wheel design. Basic designs are $150 to prep and apply the coating to all four wheel faces; more intricate designs and over-sized wheels may range up to $200. For inner barrels along with faces, an extra $100+ and wheels must be brought in off of the vehicle. Lasts roughly two years.
G1 Smart Glass
$75 for the windshield (3 coats)
Price varies for extra windows depending on size and quantity
Protecting and keeping your windshield in as close to "like-new" condition may be one of the most important aspects of car maintenance as improved visibility always makes for safer driving. This glass-specific coating forms a bond with your windshield or other glass surfaces that is extremely hydrophobic (water beads up very easily) allowing water to fly off at speeds as low as 30 mph. It is extremely durable and lasts at least a year, often more and needs no additional maintenance. $75 to clean and apply to one windshield (3 coats), if other windows or sunroofs are desired, prices are based off of the number and size of the windows.
C4 Trim Restorer
Price varies based on the amount of trim
C4 utilizes a covalent or chemical bond to become an extension of the plastic molecule it's protecting; it swaps part of its molecular structure with the surface molecules of your car's trim. What this means is that you now have a protective coating of unparalleled durability. C4 is an exceptionally thin, optically clear film which means that it does not add an unattractive gloss film to the surface; instead it restores all but the most faded trim to an as new condition. You can expect 18-24 months of durability from a single application.
