Bud's Paint & Body Shop uses water soluble paints that are more durable and environmentally friendly than traditional automotive paints. Water soluble paints have better coverage and we are able to better match vehicle paint colors to your original factory color. With less clean up time and faster drying time, we can get your car back to you that much more quickly.
When we built our state of the art facility we planned for a new ground source heat pump to be more energy efficient. We also recycle all possible materials including cardboard, metal and trash.
