$699 Deal FAQUpdated 6 months ago

Quick Q&A about the Undrdog $699 coating deal

The Undrdog $699 Deal includes a professional wash, paint decontamination, and installation of a protective coating. 

Do I really need the coating?

Yes, you do need it. It will reduce your maintenance by at least 50% and protect your vehicle from incidents that occur through day-to-day driving like bird droppings, bug accumulation, acid rain, and other things of that nature. A coating adds a layer of protection between your car and the elements. 

Is Undrdog Pro like a ceramic coating?

Yes, it's similar: it beads water, is glossy, and offers protection from the elements. However, as we listen to the market and adapt to fix the most critical pain points, we made it way easier to install, which in turn makes it more affordable for both the installer and you. 

How long does it take for the coating to be applied?

Usually, the turnaround time is about 2.5 to 3 hours, but it could take as long as 4 hours, depending on how big your vehicle is and what your demands are. 

Can Undrdog Pro be applied to my interior?

Yes, it can. Undrdog Pro protects well all surfaces including leather, plastics, metal, and glass. This is an additional service to discuss with your detailer. 

How often do I have to reapply this coating?

This is totally dependent on the wear and tear that your vehicle experiences and how well you take care of it. Most users see multiple years before needing to reapply, but again it is completely dependent on aftercare. 

How long will my car be protected?

The coating will last for multiple years, depending on how you take care of the vehicle. The best way to do that is to bucket wash it once a week. If you can’t bucket wash it, use a touchless drive-through car wash, and if neither of those two is an option for you, then a contact drive-through car wash is also ok, just expect a reduction in the coating’s longevity. 

Is there specific maintenance that I need to keep doing or is it just set-it-and-forget-it?

It can definitely be a set-it-and-forget-it, however, to get the maximum performance and longevity, the following is recommended:

  1. Regular car washes with our Soap
  2. Regular usage of our Quick Detail, a product that can add some slickness and hydrophobicity for those looking to get the most out of their coating. 

What happens if my coating gets damaged?

You can take it back to the detailer and get another layer applied. 

What is decontamination?

Paint decontamination is basically a deep cleaning process where we use a series of chemicals and clays to remove any embedded metals or contaminants that have worked their way into the paint through the manufacturing or the shipping process, or just from day-to-day driving. 

Can we do this without decontamination?

You can, but it’ll last a lot longer if it is decontaminated. We also advise against coating over any existing contaminants, as it can interfere with the coating's bond to the paint. 

On the $699 Deal, what is the coating being used and can I choose a different one?

We only sell one coating for cars and that is Undrdog Pro, which is the best bang for your buck. Being easy to apply, it makes it affordable for the installer which, in turn, makes it affordable for you. 

Does the $699 Deal cover trucks and SUVs?

The $699 covers vehicles and mid-sized SUVs. Large trucks and SUVs are priced at $899. 

On the $699 Deal, are they coating windows, chromes, and plastic?

Typically yes, but that will be something you’d want to discuss with the detailer. The 699 Deal includes all paint and trimmings, but wheels and windshields are left to the detailer’s discretion. 

How do I know which detailer should I select?

You can utilize our map, it will show you who is the closest to you, so you can pick them first. But, you have the opportunity to choose any of our participating partners, which are highlighted in pink. 

The other, blue ones, offer and install our products, but they do not offer the $699 Deal, which is exclusive to our trusted and verified installers only. 

What if I want my paint corrected?

That is definitely something you can discuss with the detailer at the time of booking. All of our detailers are experts in paint correction and they will recommend the best package for you. Typically, you’ll either get one of these two packages:
  1. an enhancement polish, which will add a lot of gloss and remove a lot of swirl marks, but it will not remove every single scratch
  2. full-blown paint correction package, where the detailer will chase every deep scratch, to give you that showroom finish.
