With Winter ending, the sun will soon be blazing across Western Branch, Chesapeake, And Portsmouth. As a body shop located in the Western Branch And Portsmouth Area, we understand damage, to any part of a car. Just because the sun is not a 2000 lb Toyota smashing into your side, does not mean it cannot hurt your vehicle. And this damage can hurt you at re-sale or just in your general satisfaction with your car or truck.
In fact from the minute your car’s paint gets exposed to sunlight, the potential for long term sun damage begins. And it is not just the exterior. As heat builds up in the car interior the upholstery fades, cracks, and takes on damage. These all become expensive eye sores that hurt resale value.

A simple remedy to prevent paint damage to the car exterior is to regularly wash and wax your car. This keeps harmful pollutants, dirt and minerals off the paint and insulates it from future damage
