Our Gallery

We’re proud of our work – and take pride in the quality of every project we undertake. Our team believes that professional auto detailing is more than just a shine. It’s a lifestyle.

Have Questions? We have Answers

What is the Legal Window Tint in Charlotte, NC?

The State of North Carolina window tint laws were established in 2001. They determine the darkeness or the VLT – also known as visible light transmission (or the percentage of light that shines through the tint). 

While each window has unqiue rules – generally, windows tint can’t exceed 35% VLT on most windows. 

There are exceptions. And the team at Lasting Impressions will be happy to walk you through your window tint options in Charlotte. 

How Much Should PPF Cost in Charlotte NC?

PPF in Charlotte is a growing trend in full vehicle protection. It’s a thermoplastic polymer sheet that is applied on top of automotive paintjobs, and protects the vehicle from road debris – such as rock chips, tree branches, gravel, and more.

A paint protection film is much better than a ceramic coating with regards to being able to protect the cars paintjob from scratches and other damage. However, that level of protection comes with an extra cost.

Generally, a full vehicle PPF installation job in Charlotte is going to cost more than $5,000. However, there are smart ways to infuse paint protection film along with Next Generation ceramic coatings to offer a lifetime of protection against everything the road and environment can throw at your car.

What is the Real Cost of Ceramic Coating in Charlotte NC?

There are a lot of ceramic coating products on the market today. Some of them are DIY ceramic coating sprays, others like Ceramic Pro nanoceramic coatings offer a lifetime of protection.

When you live in Charlotte, NC, your vehicle is constantly exposed to environmental contaminants, like UV Rays, Bug Splatter, Bird Droppings, Tree Sap, Pollen, and more. If these natural toxins sit on your car’s paintjob, the clear coat will slowly begin to breakdown.

Eventually, you’ll need to repaint the vehicle – or resell the vehicle for less than true market value. By having the Lasting Impressions team install a professional-grade nanoceramic coating on your vehicle, you’re saving thousands of dollars in the short and long term.
