Convertible Roof Cleaning & Restoration
Our Specialist cabriolet hood restoration service has been developed over 15 years into a process which can restore and protect your cabriolet hood, removing mould and lichen and replacing the hydrophobic coating.
Cabriolet/Convertible roofs are tough to keep clean and prone to fading . Fabric hoods usually attract mould and moss. Without protection you can expect an unmaintained convertible hood on a cabriolet to last on average around 6-8 years before it will need replacing.
Convertible Hood Cleaning
& Restoration Specialists
The majority of people usually come to us because their convertible roofs have been neglected, not maintained or cleaned for a considerable period of time. This neglect generally leads to the hood becoming covered in green algae, moss, mould or lichen and when left untreated to the elements the fabric can deteriorate rapidly. Unfortunately IF left unmaintained the rotting process begins and when reaching a point of no return it will create further problems such as water leaks and functional issues. Therefore, recovery and restoration of the existing hood will no longer be possible and will inevitably lead to an expensive convertible hood replacement costing anything between £500 - £3000. in order to avoid costly hood replacements, regular cleaning, protection and maintenance is advised.
Weather Protection & Fabric Hood Proofing
Weather protection with **Renovo Ultra Proofer** & **Max Protect UFC Proofer**
All brand new fabric soft tops come with an invisible 'weather proofer' already applied and over time this special coating deteriorates and needs replacing leaving your soft top roof unprotected from the elements becoming weak and more prone to damage.
We offer a varied range of convertible hood protection products including Renovo® Ultra Proofer & Max Protect UFC Proofer. These dedicated convertible hood products protect your convertible/cabriolet hood by creating an invisible chemical and waterproof barriers. These barriers prevent discolouration from ingrained dirt, tree sap, bird droppings, road salts and much more from penetrating into the fibres and doing damage to the convertible hood material.
These hood protection products have a specially developed formula which contains Ultra Violet (UV) inhibitors and agents to prevent mould and mildew and prolongs the life of your soft top whilst maintaining the value of your car.
Our Cleaning Process.
Before Ultra Proofer is applied, your convertible hood is washed and brushed using a variety of specialist tools and hood cleaning products and then the convertible hood is then dried. Your car will also be given a quick wash so that you won't be collecting a dirty car with a clean roof. This level of service is ideal for most cars that are no more than a few years old where the hood is reasonably free from mould, moss and lichen and for the older, dirtier hoods you may also require a Hood Machine Clean.
Your hood is cleaned, dried, re-proofed and then dried again and so in normal circumstances you will be required to leave your car with us for a minimum 4 hours. Please be mindful to allow extra time if the weather is unfavourable and experiencing rain as it is vitally important that the hood is properly dried before returning the car to you.
We can also provide a two stage protective and hydrophobic coating which contains antimicrobial agents. The nano partials coat the fibres of your fabric hood providing extended durability.
