Which ceramic coating (length or brand) should I choose? – FAQ

Which ceramic coating (length or brand) should I choose?

The short answer is quite simple: only buy what you will use. 

Harker Heights Ceramic Coatings’ business philosophy is that we only advise clients to spend money that makes sense to spend. That goes for our clear bra packages, our ceramic coating packages, or paint enhancement/correction. 

We tell clients all the time not to waste money on something they don’t need, and we have told people not to buy clear bra if we don’t think it would be worth it (usually for vehicles that have a lot of rock chips on their bumper and the installation would look bad). 

We could easily try to upsell our clients into buying expensive packages or spending more money, but the little bit of extra money we would get is not worth the trust we can build by just being honest.

Most major brands of ceramic coating, much like major brands of clear bra/paint protection film, are quality brands. We are certified with many different brands of coating – Ceramic Pro, SB3, System X, R1, just to name a few. You likely will not notice a difference between brands, which is why we don’t even advertise what ceramic coating brand we use. We simply pick the best one for the application and apply it!

Our pricing model is structured so that the longer-lasting warranties are more expensive really only to account for more expensive materials – not additional profit. We only install single-layer systems now, so these layered systems where you have layer upon layer of the same type of ceramic coating, designed for maximum profit for each layer – we don’t use. 

The average car owner only keeps their vehicle for approximately four years, and the average age of vehicles on the road is about ten years.

So what should we get?

If you are the type of person that keeps a car forever until the wheels fall off – get the ten year. If you trade in your vehicle frequently, get the ceramic coating length that makes sense for the length of time you typically own a vehicle.

So, if I get an X year coating, does that mean I don't have to wash it for that time?

No! You still must care for the vehicle, decontaminate the paint regularly, and take care of it overall. Unfortunately, ceramic coatings are not the death of car washing – they just make the clean up a lot easier!
