About the Process
Our fiberglass and gelcoat repair process depends heavily on the severity of the damage. A full repair is generally a six step process. For severe damage we must first remove any excess fiberglass from the damaged area by grinding it out. This ensures proper bonding and a repair that will hold up to the test of time. Once the excessive fiberglass has been removed we fill the region with a marine grade fiberglass resin. We take our time when color matching your gelcoat to make sure the repair isn’t noticeable. Once the color has been sprayed it is time to add the coat of gel to protect the freshly sprayed color. The final step of our process is wet sanding and buffing the surface to make it look as if there was never any damage in the first place.
