Ceramic Nano Coating Actual Benefit

Ceramic Coatings are far and away the best and most sophisticated automotive surface protection invented. Here are the common benefits many ceramic coatings provide to vehicles if installed properly:

  • Greatly Increased UV Protection

  • Enhanced Chemical Protection

  • Scratch Resistance to Wash Induced Friction (greatly varies on the coating formulation)

  • Increased Visual Gloss

  • A Self Cleaning Effect (If the surface is regularly maintained and not contaminated)

  • Ease of Maintenance due to Hydrophobic Properties

What Ceramic Nano Coatings Are NOT

Ceramic Coatings are not a solve-all solution for surfaces. The will not provide a set-it-and-forget-it type of protection as seen by a star wars death star type force field. While some coating companies will go through great lengths to overtly claim extreme protection, it is not a reality.

Ceramic Coatings Do Not:

  • Provide Real Protection against Accidental Scratching or Road Impact Collisions (Rock Chips or door dings)

  • Make a Vehicle Immune to Regular Car Washing

  • Protect a Vehicle from Graffiti, Flame Throwers, or Other Non-Real world Situations

About me


As an entrepreneur, I am results driven and look for creating solutions in life. My start as an entrepreneur began at 17 as a mobile DJ working with my dad.

My detailing expertise comes from the mentorship of Kevin Brown. He's one of the top three detailers teaching others the proper steps and techniques for high level detailing. The Auto Salon Works name came from the trip taken in the past to the Tokyo Auto Salon. Seeing companies like Bozz Speed and Cusco prep their cars for TAS, showed me what the highest level of meticulous attention to detail and showmanship looked like.

"People don't know what they want until they know what they can have...and they don't know what they can have until you make it available to them."

I used to work in the corporate world in the semiconductor industry for several years. Shooting for excellence in my work is my standard that you will see in my portfolio. In the past, I have worked in and out of the automotive industry for almost 10+ years dealing with aftermarket performance and modifications. 

I like taking pictures when I am out and about as one of my hobbies, eating good food, and getting good exercise all with my wife.

Andrew is fantastic! My black 911 had pretty beat up paintwork, swirls and scratches ... including an unfortunate encounter with a sunshade that blew up off the freeway. Dropped the car off with Andrew for a couple of days for polish/paint correction and Ceramic Pro. Couldn't believe it when I came to pick it up. The car was totally transformed and looked as good as the day I got it. I'll let the write up speak for itself.

Andrew worked a miracle on my Tesla S. I had several cheaper options for the Ceramic Pro application but I am convinced that no one can do the paint prep/restoration like Andrew.  The results are awesome.  This man has the experience, skills, and is willing to do the hard work to make your vehicle look amazing!

I purchased a 2013 SL550 lease return from a local dealer who had sent the vehicle out to be "detailed" before offering it up for sale.  The detail job was amateurish at best.  They left wax residue around the hood and doorsills, scuffs and stains on the door panels, etc.  Basically they just ran it through a car wash and applied a quick coat of wax - which they didn't bother to completely remove and buff.The car was 3 years old and while in good condition, the paint was showing its age. I brought it to Andrew for paint correction and Opti Gloss Coat.  All I can say is WOW!…
