Who we service
Although we specialize in luxury, performance, and exotic vehicles, we don't discriminate. If you have an eye for the details, then you've found the right place.
My name is Braden Schlimme, founder and executive detailer of Attention to Detail Dallas. I am a Lovejoy grad currently attending SMU Cox School of Business. My passion for cars lead me to explore the world of detailing. I fell in love with the art and founded ATD after recognizing a demand for quality details for enthusiasts like myself.
How long does a detail take?Timeline can vary drastically depending upon the condition of the car and the detail package requested. Most exterior details take 2 hours or less. Our platinum detail usually takes between 3-5 hours.
Do you offer mobile details?Currently we do not have a mobile team but it is something we are looking into for the future.
How often should I detail my car?Frequency of car details varies from client to client. Consider how often and how you use your vehicle. Most clients find that a once per month Maintenance Detail keeps their car in the optimal condition. For daily drivers, we recommend considering our bi-weekly Maintenance Detail.
How do I know if my car needs to be polished or waxed?1. Out of direct sunlight, spray your door with water. If the water forms tight bead shaped droplets, you do not need to wax or coat your car. If your paint shows little to no water beading, your paint needs to be waxed. 2. After washing, lightly run your fingertips across the top of your car. It should feel very slick and smooth. If your paint feels rough or grippy, it is likely time for a wax or ceramic coating. Here is an example of a vehicle that does not need to be waxed. This vehicle has our three step Gtechniq ceramic coating applied.
Why should I detail my car rather than take it to the car wash?A proper detail is more than just cleaning a car. Our details preserve the condition of your vehicle and in some cases restore pre existing damage such as paint scratches or swirls often caused by automatic car washes. The mechanical brushes and acidic chemicals used at most car washes damage the clear coat of your vehicle causing scratch marks that are especially visible in direct sunlight.
Can I remove scratches from my paint without repainting my vehicle?Light surface scratches can be removed with either a One Stage or Two Stage Polish. A one step polish is usually ideal for cars that are new or have not been washed at an automatic car wash. Our Two Stage correction is best for vehicles that are a few years old or have been washed at a mechanical car wash.
