Why: To have your car or truck undercoated means having a layer of protection sprayed onto the undercarriage of your vehicle, including the floorboards, wheel wells, and frame. Since the underside of your vehicle is not washed during regular maintenance, and is not even rinsed by regular rainwater, it is important to protect the exposed parts from rust and corrosion.
How: Applying an undercoating to a vehicle is a very straightforward procedure. It is something we can have finished in one day when the weather is dry, or done overnight if the vehicle needs to be stored indoors to help it cure in rainy weather.
First we completely clean the undercarriage of the vehicle, making sure any oil, grease, or gasoline is removed to make sure the undercoating sticks evenly. Once everything is clean and dry we move onto spraying.
The undercoating that we use is a very thick, rubberized and texturized compound that adheres to the frame of the vehicle like paint but covers like a thick rubber coating. Some people try to perform undercoatings at home using over the counter spray cans, and it is definitely possible, but getting the room underneath your vehicle safely at home can be difficult, and producing an even coating can be even tougher. We use professional grade applicators and experienced technicians to apply a very thick, even undercoat that will last for the life of your vehicle without needing replacement under average use.
