Ceramic Coating-Non DIY Product?

I think I am going to break down and get a black truck (2019 Sierra Denali) - always have had white.

Being I am OCD/Anal, I think I am going to spring for a professional (non DIY) ceramic coating.

Are their certain brands that are better? I searched local detailers and they all brag about the different brands they use.

A bit confused with all the information overload so any advice is greatly appreciated!

PS....I have done my research on the truck so don’t need to hear Ford/Toyota arguments from Aric (lol)

Look for brands that will allow you to apply multiple coats. Not all do. One such brand is Ceramic Pro.

Always name dropping lol. I’ve been very intrigued by the ceramic coating but I’ve never been brave enough to buy a black truck. I’d like to do my platinum with the coating so I’m following this one, even though the truck is pearl white.

Hope you like washing your truck. I bought black after many white ones. Seems like I wash it twice a week.

Yep....not too excited about washing it so I may have to join the wash club. My wife and three kids told me it is time to live a little.

My last six vehicles:

White Suburban 4wd
White F250
White F250
White F150
Silver GMC Sierra (stepped out a bit)
White GMC Sierra

By the way, the above list is over the course of 20 years - not one year Aric (lol).

Black N Green - are you saying Ceramic Pro does or does not allow multiple coats?

Thanks for the replies gentlemen!

There's a reason UPS trucks are brown.

Forget running you truck through a normal car wash as it voids the warranty for Ceramic Pro, you can only use touchless car washes.

Wow! Many thanks for pointing that out Dave. I just googled and just as you said, many places will not warrant if you use any wash that touches your car (including the "soft touch" washes).

Maybe I will just stick to having it professionally detailed a few times a year. Too late to back out of the black....

Thanks again for pointing that out Dave.

No problem, I looked hard into this product but there are so many things they can void the warranty on. It just didn't make sense to me.

Then the warranty is only good if you spend XXX dollars for a touch up each year. Im not really sure what the warranty is used for because it does require this yearly touch up.

You could get someone to do a sealant on your car that would last about 6 months and would be similar to a ceramic coating in a sense.
