A-1 Wash & Detail does not use automotive products that are meant for clear coat or gel-coated boats. We use only the finest professional marine and RV products available used to erase salt water particles and some chalkiness off your Boat/RV while protecting your gel-coat. The simplest form of maintenance is having your boat and/or RV washed and protected regularly.
Compound & High-Speed Polishing – compound removes light oxidation, chalkiness and faded gel coats. This polish will restore your faded color to its original luster. Each compound process is determined by the age of the gel coat and condition. Some boats and/or RVs may need a light compound, as others will require a medium to heavy duty compound. A-1 Wash & Detail uses a 2-3 step process to bring your gel coat to its original condition.
Oxidation Removal – For gel or clear coats that have been neglected, even the most aggressive compounds will not completely remove heavy oxidation and/or scratches. A-1 Wash & Detail uses a 3-4 step process of wet-sanding the gel coat removing all oxidation and most scratches. We follow that by a 2-3 step process of compounding, to bring back the gloss. Then we polish your gel or clear coat which removes most scratches or imperfections and prepares the surface to be sealed. The process is finished with the application of a professional marine grade caranuba wax (3 months of protection with the proper care) or a ceramic coating (EGC), which is a hybrid of a chemically bonding hard inorganic base coat and highly dirt and water repellent organic top coat. Select ceramic coating provides up to 1 year of protection and amazing shine for your investment. This service truly brings boat detailing to a whole new level.
