VANDAL SCRATCHES FAQs

If you have a question that is not covered here, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us via the contact us page.

Scratches on your car can be unsightly and, if left unrepaired, can lead to more long-term problems such as rust and corrosion. Revive! technicians can repair paint scratches at your home or workplace in just a matter of hours.

Your Revive! technician will first prepare the scratched area for paintwork, which includes assessing the damage and masking around the damaged area before sanding and priming the panel.

The technician will then mix their paint to match the colour of your car to achieve a quality finish. A spray gun is used to apply the paint to the damaged area, blending so that the repair is contained to the smallest area possible.

Paint repairs typically take just a few hours. In the past, deep scratches could have resulted in the entire panel being replaced. Thanks to improvements in technology, it is now possible to have the repair carried out specifically on the affected area to get your vehicle back to showroom condition in no time at all.

If the damage is only surface level, it should come out with a buff and polish. Buffing out scratches is a faster and cheaper solution than a paint repair, but will only work if the damage has not broken the surface of the paint.

You can usually tell if a scratch has broken the surface of the paint by running your fingernail over the scratch. If your fingernail catches, then the scratch is probably too deep to buff out.
