  • What is a Ceramic Coating?
    If you're looking for a more effective way to protect your car's paint from the elements, a ceramic coating might be just what you need. Unlike wax or other polymers, a ceramic coating leverages advanced silica technology to create a hydrophobic barrier that chemically bonds with your factory clear coat. The result is a layer of protection that is not only more permanent and resilient but also provides a stunningly glossy finish that enhances the overall appearance of your vehicle.
  • Are all Ceramic Coatings the same?
    Ceramic coatings are not created equal and can vary significantly based on the manufacturer and installer. At Rabuck Detailing, we only use Owner's Pride Ceramic Coatings, a trusted and reputable brand in the industry. These coatings are designed to provide maximum protection, durability, and longevity to your vehicle's paint. Additionally, our coatings come with an optional warranty, giving you peace of mind that your investment is protected. Our certified installers are expertly trained and skilled to ensure that your coating is applied correctly and will perform at its best. With a national network of certified installers, you can trust Rabuck Detailing to provide you with the highest quality ceramic coating services available.
  • Can I purchase my own Ceramic Coating and have it installed?
    At Rabuck Detailing, we place great emphasis on ensuring that our customers are completely satisfied with their installations. To achieve this, we exclusively use top-of-the-line products and employ certified experts with a wealth of knowledge and experience to deliver outstanding results. We kindly ask that you refrain from providing your own ceramic coating, as the installation process can vary significantly, and we aim to attain the highest possible standard of installation.
  • Will a ceramic coating increase my resale value?
    The ceramic coating not only safeguards your car from harmful fallout, but it also preserves its stunning shine for a considerable period. The result is an elevated level of excellence, taking your car's condition to the next level. Opting for a warranty will further enhance your peace of mind, as the ceramic coating will be linked to your car's VIN and reflected on your Carfax report.
  • How long does a detail last?
    Regular detailing can help maintain the appearance and condition of your vehicle, but the effects usually last for a period of 4-6 months. However, if you opt for a warrantied ceramic coating, the benefits of detailing can be extended for up to seven years. This coating acts as a protective layer that shields your vehicle's paint from the elements and prevents dirt and grime from sticking to the surface. It also adds a glossy finish and enhances the color of your vehicle, making it look brand new for longer. Investing in a warrantied ceramic coating can save you money in the long run, as you won't have to spend on frequent detailing sessions.
  • How long does detailing take?
    The time it takes to detail a vehicle can vary depending on the level of service required. On average, a basic detail can take around 2-5 hours to complete. However, if a vehicle requires special attention or has excessive dirt and grime buildup, the detailing process can take up to 12 hours to ensure that the vehicle is thoroughly cleaned and restored to its original condition. It's important to note that the length of time required for detailing services can also vary depending on the size and type of vehicle being serviced.
  • Is detailing worth the cost?
    Regular maintenance of your vehicle by a reliable detailer can significantly boost the resale value of your car by as much as 20 percent. By entrusting your car to a skilled detailer, you can ensure that it is kept in excellent condition, free from dirt, grime, and other contaminants that could otherwise cause damage. This not only enhances your car's aesthetic appeal but also prolongs its lifespan, making it a more attractive prospect for potential buyers when it's time to sell.

    At Rabuck Detailing, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with a premium experience. Our spacious waiting room is designed with your comfort in mind, featuring modern workstations, clean and well-maintained restrooms, high-speed Wi-Fi, a large-screen TV, and a variety of complimentary snacks and beverages to keep you refreshed.

  • Should I prep my vehicle prior to detailing?
    To ensure a safe and enjoyable visit, we kindly request that our guests take some time to prepare prior to arrival. We recommend removing any child seats or valuable belongings from your vehicle before entering the premises. This will help to prevent any potential damage or loss and ensure that you have a stress-free experience. Thank you for your cooperation.
  • What are the cons of detailing?
