How Much Does Ceramic Coating Cost? (And Why)
Updated: Mar 13
This question is searched more often than "What is Ceramic Coating" - crazy right? I guess if you are already in the market for a Ceramic Coating you likely have an idea of what a Ceramic Coating is supposed to do.
Diving right in, I can only speak to our Cost of Ceramic Coating at Kings Valet. Kings Valet is the Premier Installer of Ceramic Coating in Northern Indiana / Southern Michigan. Our base package is called the "Triple P" which is short for Prep, Polish, Paint.
The "Triple P" - LIFETIME Ceramic Coating Package:
The Prep Stage is a full exterior detail which includes, pH neutral hand wash, iron removal, clay bar + a detailed focus on rims, undercarriage and more. Our Polish Stage includes a buffer applied polish done in a crosshatch pattern on all exterior paint. This is designed to add shine prior to coating application. This step also includes an alcohol bath to remove any grease or oil left on the surface. The better the prep, the better the result! Finally, the Paint Stage is the application of your LIFETIME Ceramic Coating to all exterior paint. This package takes about 10 hours to complete for a single installer (Usually this is Stephen as I make him do all the hard work... Props of being the big brother 😅).
The Triple P starts at $1175 for sedan sized vehicles and caps at $1395 for Larger Trucks and SUVs. We offer an add-on Full Exterior Package that covers plastics, glass and rims. We also offer a Full Interior Package that covers plastics, leather, textile and carpet. All of these coatings in the Add-ons are covered under Kings Valet's Lifetime Program as well - most other companies will only cover these coatings for 1 year!
We only offer 2 everyday discounts at Kings Valet. The first is a Military Discount - 12% off total invoice. Nearly our entire family has served and we cannot thank those who have served enough for the freedoms we enjoy today. The only other daily discount we offer is for Multi-Vehicle Discount. This is 12% off every additional vehicle booked with-in 30 days of the first vehicle being serviced. First vehicle will be at retail price. (Yes - we know, you have 10 vehicles you are definitely going to have done with us 😉)
We DO allow stacking of these discounts if you are military. Again - thank you for your service.
Summary: Kings Valet has a goal of delivering more value at every fork in the road. If you are a price driven shopper - we are likely not a good fit. Kings Valet is not (nor intends to be) the cheapest in town. Do you want peace of mind? That peace of mind won't come from an uninsured guy showing up in your garage to install a consumer grade coating he had you purchase. Ceramic Coatings are something where you will get exactly what you pay for...
