McDaniel’s Gone Green with Waterborne
The employees and management of McDaniel Paint & Body Shop would like to thank you for partnering with us in our mission to improve the environment. We have made the conscious and strategic decision to invest our resources to convert our operations to the exclusive use of waterborne color. We are proud to be among a very select group of collisions centers around the country who have chosen to go “green”. At McDaniel Paint & Body Shop our goal is to make a positive difference for both you and the environment.
Why is this important to us?
It’s up to everyone to contribute in helping the environment. And we’re doing what we can to lead the way. What does our use of waterborne mean to you? It means an 80% reduction in volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from our basecoat color. That translates into fewer emissions into the atmosphere and better air quality for us all. We believe it’s time for each of us to begin making wise decisions with respect to preserving our way of life and investing in our children’s future. With McDaniel Paint & Body Shop that starts right here, right now.
We know you want the paint color of your repair to match the rest of your car. We do too. 70% of the colors used by auto manufacturers today are waterborne. So now we’re using what they’re using, which enables us to offer you the most accurate color match available.
We won’t get into all the details of how waterborne works, but the advantage is really in the high tech nature of the pigments that are used. The waterborne basecoat combined with clearcoat makes the paint much more durable and resistant to general wear & tear.
Automotive painting and refinishing is truly an art. Properly matching the high tech finishes found on many of today's vehicles requires trained expertise in application techniques. Our painters combine the latest techniques with the keen eye of an artist to create "never been damaged" quality finishes. It is our policy to take every precaution to insure the final finish matches your original paint in both appearance and quality -- to protect and preserve the value of your vehicle. Our automotive section is equipped with a spraybooth and bake oven configuration. This dust-free facility enables us to prepare and refinish your cars quickly and to ensure a long lasting repair. We can mix over 65,000 car colors from straight solid to clear over base metallics and pearlescent micas on our PPG paint mixing machine. With the use of an advanced identification system, we will ensure accurate color matching on all makes of cars.
At McDaniel Paint & Body Shop we make every effort to prepare a correct estimate the first time, occasionally this requires minor disassembly of damaged areas to get a closer look at the "not so obvious" that often happens in an accident. An in-depth estimate helps us and the insurance company insure a smooth flow of the repair process. Our estimate center is open Mon. - Fri. 8 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Our estimate center enables our estimators to bring your vehicle in out of the weather, to get the quality estimate our customers deserve. Our estimate center is equipped with a hydraulic lift so that we can lift your vehicle to look for hidden damages in the under body and frame.
Properly repairing today's complex vehicles requires more expert knowledge and specialized equipment than years past. From major collision damage to minor dings, our skilled personnel have the experience, knowledge, and proper equipment to expertly restore your vehicle to pre-crash condition. Every procedure, from realigning unibody components to installing decorative trim, must meet our demanding high standards of quality. Our state-of-the-art repair techniques assure that you receive the highest quality of body work.
