"I couldn’t be happier with the results! They paid attention to every detail and my car looks like it came off the showroom floor! Highly recommend!"

Ryan Harrell

"Very professional service and Raul was very accommodating with my schedule. Will definitely recommend to friends and family."

Anup Aryal

"I will start off by saying that I live in Williamsburg but heard that Chavez and Sons is best at installing paint protection film and ceramic coating. I contacted Chavez and Sons on 10/14/22 to receive a quote to install STEK full front paint protection film and apply SB3 Trinity ceramic coating to my 2023 Audi Q7. Raul sent me a detailed invoice, and I was scheduled to drop my car off on 10/24/22. At that time, Raul, the owner, also INSISTED that I come to his garage to see his work. I was able to visit his shop on 10/21/22. The shop is not only EXTREMELY clean and well-lit, but also SECURE. Raul showed me a luxury vehicle that he applied paint protection film, and I was blown away! I could not even see the film on the car. I dropped my car off on 10/24/22 to have the PPF installed, and SB3 Trinity ceramic coating applied. I received numerous updates and could also follow the work being done on social media, but Raul did not post the finished product until after I picked up my vehicle. The surprise was worth the wait. I picked up my car on 10/28/22 and could not believe my eyes! My car looks AMAZING. I was shocked. I expected it to look good, but Raul far exceeded my expectations. When my husband and I picked it up Raul proudly showed us the edges, where he made relief cuts, and everything looks perfect. My car looks better than when I picked it up from the dealership. Thank you so much, Chavez and Sons!"

Tanisha J.

"Top notch service!!! Had ceramic coating done on my new truck. It looks better than when i drove it off the lot. Great experience from beginning to end. Highly recommend!!!"

Mark Janoka

"They really did an awesome job! I was very impressed at the results. The car looks actually better than when it was new! I highly recommend them. Very friendly and courteous too!"

Mark Dorsey

"My car has never been more clean. I feel like I have a whole new vehicle. Very impressed and thankful for their services!"

Terri Douglas

"I have a three year old black SUV that was ceramic coated by the dealership when I purchased it. I had a paint correction and ceramic coating applied, and my car looked 1000% better when these guys were done with it than the day I bought it. Amazing work and attention to detail. Communication during the process was outstanding and clear expectations of what could and could not be accomplished were laid out from the start. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a knowledgeable shop to care for and protect their vehicle!"

Christine Conrad

"A great job was done and I would definitely go back for my truck and other car. Highly recommend to others and it is worth every penny!"

David V

"Phenomenal service! Attention to detail in PPF & ceramic coating brought this Range Rover Sport back to life."

Carl Batiste

"Chavez & Sons are top notch. Raul went above and beyond to accommodate my detailing and PPF needs. They do fantastic work and stand behind it 100%. Thank you Raul, you did an amazing job on my buggy."

Scott Gardner

"I compared many options before I finally decided to bring my new car to Chavez Auto Detailing for paint protection and ceramic coating and I could not be happier with the service I was provided. Their attention to detail sold me. You can see it for yourself in their website, their portfolio, and their videos. You can tell they're proud of the work they do on every car they touch and your car will be the next shining example of their incredible work ethic. I will recommend Chavez Auto Detailing to anyone that asks for my opinion from here on out."

Rob Lamb

"Excellent work and extremely professional. Work was done and completed in a timely manner. Very very happy with the results."

Jamie Sample

"I am very pleased with the finished product of my vehicle. Raul did a great job and it shows! Vehicle looks like glass and better than it did when I received it from the showroom floor!"

Rasool Sutton

"Great family/veteran owned business. I had Chavez and Sons AD apply their STEK PPF to my windshield on my Toyota 4Runner. The quality and clarity of the product they use is phenomenal. They took great pride and care in their service. We WILL be returning for the other services they provide."

Cesar Atalig

"Just picked up my car today and all I can say is it looks awesome. I had level one paint correction, ceramic coating on interior, exterior and glass surfaces. I went there all the way from Virginia Beach because of the quality and the price. I highly recommend using this company and their prices are more than reasonable for the work that they do."

Ed Campbell

"All around great experience. Professional, quick, and amazing results. Would happily use again!"

Lynda Kolumbia McT

"This is my second car I’ve had detailed with Chavez and Sons. They did the ceramic coating on both cars and it’s worth every cent! Absolutely fantastic job on both! They are very professional and easy to work with. I recommend this company to everyone who wants their vehicles to look brand new and stay that way! They go above and beyond!"

Christy Bond

"We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. They are timely, professional, and well worth the price. Our vehicle was as clean as the day we drove it off of the lot (if not cleaner). We will be returning for sure!"

Rae McDowell-Burs

"I entrusted Chavez with my brand new Tesla Y to provide both paint protection film and ceramic coating. They took great care with my car. The workmanship was simply outstanding and the finish is fantastic! The protection film was applied in a fashion that it is invisible, and along with the ceramic coating has significantly improved the appearance of my vehicle. I highly recommend Chavez Auto Detailing and am extremely satisfied with the work that was done."

Clyde Pray

"Service was very thorough. Staff was very kind and professional and made for an overall pleasant experience."

Jacob Comer

"Great and professional service. Was a bit skeptical of the prices at first but Chavez and Sons are masters of their craft and I'm completely satisfied with all aspects of their service. Thank you!"

Rick Metcalf

"Raul detailed my Jeep Patriot that needed some serious love and he did an awesome job! I picked up my car smelling and looking great. He even got some stickers off my window that had been on there for 7+ years. Definitely recommend!"

Miranda Gollnick

"My car was ceramic coated. Dropped off on a friday and picked up on sunday . Absolutely amazing job. Done properly and on time. Also very good at replying and keeping me updated on the status of the job. I had no issues."

Evgeny Korovin

"After searching all over the Hampton Roads area I came upon Chavez Auto Detailing and I’m extremely glad I did! I was looking for a highly rated and very professional detailing service in order to trade in my 2016 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon for ultimate negotiating power. Let me tell you, I strongly believe that by choosing the Sapphire Package and Pet Hair Removal option, I was able to negotiate and receive MUCH more than what was previously appraised by multiple sources! You absolutely won’t regret taking your vehicle here!"

Cruz Sepeda

"Absolutely professional and perfect results. Raul exceeded expectations. My vehicle looks better than the day I bought it new. I got the Trinity ceramic coating, wheels coated, and glass coated. The black paint has a wet look and is a deep crisp black without any haze. The trim and wheels shine. Raul was great at communicating from the beginning with his estimate, during the service, and in accommodating some special requests. He’s flexible and responsive. I will definitely use Chavez Auto Detailing in the future for other services. I highly recommend this veteran owned and operated company. Thanks Raul, couldn’t be happier with your service."

Wilson Hopkins

"Absolutely love the work that Chavez and Sons do. Took my 21 4 Runner in for a ceramic coat, and the vehicle looked better than initially purchasing the vehicle."

Derek Hobbs

"I tried this shop since it was the only authorized Stek PPF installer within a reasonable distance and the reviews looked good. I already had a full body PPF from another installer but needed my lip rewrapped. Raul was courteous, professional and was fair on his pricing. He took care of my lip rewrap and really showed his professionalism when some minor but noticeable imperfections came up on it a few weeks later. If you've had a wrap, you know these things happen...just comes with the territory. It's how the installer deals with them that is more important. Raul excelled here and took care of the problems until we were both satisfied with the results. Oh, and he is very communicative as well. If you need something before or during your service, give him a shout! Highly recommend!"

Zach McNair

"Chavez and Sons did an amazing job on my GoMango Dodge Charger! They gave me a free estimate and when I was ready they made it very easy to schedule a time and day to do a 1 year ceramic coat. My car looks immaculate now and I’m very pleased with the work they did. I will definitely be returning in the future!"

River Fiedler

"Raul from Chavez Auto Detailing did an amazing job with my 2023 BMW X5. The vehicle was attended to with attention, love and care. The PPF applied was amazing and on point. Raul took his time to carefully laid each piece with precision. He also coated the film with two layers of ceramic coating and along with the wheels. The results were outstanding! He explained the entire process and was super attentive to my questions and needs. You definitely won’t be disappointed! Top notch professionalism! And top notch workmanship. Definitely will come back with my next car."

Jay Ch

"Incredibly professional, great customer care, and and got my car to 100!! Highly recommend! Veteran doing it right!"

exterior detailing FAQs

What’s the best way to prevent contaminants?
+

Using sealants that contain SiO2 or Ceramic Coatings, this will help your car become more hydrophobic and resistant to contaminants. Otherwise, the obvious tip is to be mindful where you park your vehicle.

Can I use dishwashing soap instead of car soap?
+

Dishwashing detergents are made to be very strong because they have to break up grease and food materials. They can strip the polymer off the paint surface and accelerate the oxidation process. You’ll want to use a car soap made specifically for cars.

What’s the best way to remove contaminants?
+

First, we recommend using a Decontaminate or "Decon" Soap. This is stronger than regular car soap, as it will help strip your car of waxes and surface contaminants. You can use 1 to 2 ounces per gallon of water. Typically we use 5 ounces for a 5 gallon bucket of water. Next, you’ll want to remove bonded contaminants on the car with a liquid clay bar. You can use a traditional clay bar to remove things like sap, but a liquid clay bar is quicker and more effective.

What are contaminants?
+

Contaminants are things like brake dust, bird droppings, dirt and more that pollute and destroy your paint surface. They sit on top of your clear coat and can potential damage if left on for extended amount of time. Common contaminants include brake dust, industrial fall out, rail dust, iron deposits, bug guts, road salt, tree sap, and bird droppings.

How many buckets should you use?
+

You want to use at least 2 buckets. One with the clean soapy water and the other with clean water. Soap up your mitt, clean a portion of the car, then dip the dirty mitt into the water bucket so you don’t put contaminants into the soapy bucket. Essentially you are ‘rinsing’ your mitt with the water bucket in between cleanings. The standard bucket size is 5 gallons. A grit guard at the bottom of the bucket can help remove more dirt from your mitt or sponge. The dirt will then settle at the bottom keeping your wash water clean.

How should you wash and care for microfiber towels?
+

You’ll want to take special care when washing your towels. You'll need to wash them separately, specific to their use. Don’t wash them with cloth towels or you run the risk of lint from the cloth towel becoming stuck to the microfiber towel. Wash with hot water, detergent and skip the fabric softener. Fabric softener will reduce the effectiveness of the microfiber towel. Dry them on low heat. Once dry, fold them and put in them a plastic container where they are safe from contaminants.

Why should you use microfiber towels over other materials?
+

When it comes time for applying your wax, sealants or drying your car, you’ll want to use microfiber towels. Why? Similar to the sponge we talked about above other materials (like cloth rags, old t-shirts, standard towels) can have dust or dirt embedded in them. Rough materials can damage your paint finish. They are also very helpful for properly buffing the car wax/sealants into the car and removing it. They are great for buffing vehicle surfaces, chrome wheels, metal trim, windows and more. Safe on interior surfaces such as leather, vinyl, plastic, metal, wood and more. The towels we utilize were made specifically for car detailing featuring an edgeless design with no rough edges to scratch your surface. They also have a 2 sided design with longer fibers for buffing and shorter fibers for removing the product. Chamois towels lack knap and possibly scratch your paint with leftover particles when not cared for properly. We find microfiber towels to be more forgiving.

What should you use to wash your vehicle?
+

When most people think of washing a car they think of a traditional sponge. The problem is sponges capture and holds things like dirt and grit in their large pores. Despite your best efforts to wring it out some grit will stay embedded. It becomes like washing your car with sandpaper and can cause small scratches. You must use a microfiber car wash mitt because that grit should fall out when you rinse.
