The paint and refinishing processes is the most visible and noticeable step of the vehicle repair process. The quality of the paint materials used is as important as the quality of the painter’s preparation and application.

At Innovative Restorations we use quality materials made my BASF and have an in-house mixing system and color database with new and antique factory color code information. If a custom color is something that you are looking for we can create whatever it is you have in mind.

Scheduling an appointment is easy. We start with just a few questions to understand your issue and contact you within one business day to schedule service.

We look forward to hearing from you. Contact us or give us a call today!

“I brought my car in to have the alternator replaced. They provided me with a reasonable, detailed estimate very quickly. I liked that they told me what had to be fixed right away, vs what will need to be fixed in the future. They took the time to explain the repair to me which I appreciated. I had my car back within one day of dropping it off which was great. Very well organized and professional, I would definitely recommend and go back for future mechanical needs. Great to deal with, thanks again guys!”

I am extremely satisfied with Adam and his crew at innovative restorations. Adam is one of the few business owners that will go out of his way to ensure that his clients understand the process of restoration and all of their options. He is up front, honest and performs top of the line work. I would highly recommend innovative restorations for your basic day to day maintenance or the highest level of automobile restoration.

Highly recommend Adam and his team when you have issues with your car or even if you have a question. Adam is very knowledgeable, patient, and is willing to work with your concerns.

Nikki Scoffone

Just had Adam and his team put a rear diffuser on my car and they did some great work. The car looks great and they did a check on my entire car. Thank you for the great service. No one gives that kind of detail to their work done.

Amanda Fainer

Adam and the guys worked on a vehicle of mine and the workmanship was perfect! He also dealt with the insurance company so I didn’t have to which was great. It was nice having someone I could trust to deal with that. He also showed me around his immaculately clean shop. You could tell by the vehicles in there that people have trust in him and the company with the high quality of classic vehicles in the shop. I would recommend this company to anyone.

Emily Viola

Adam and his team did a excellet job completing the mechanical upgrades and paint work on my classic Ford. Having had a bad experience with a previous shop that was incompetent and ill-equipped to perform the work, I knew from my initial meeting with Adam that they are a professional and extremely knowledgeable shop. My expectations were more than met with the quality and attention to detail that was shown on my project. I’m​ now a long lasting customer and would without hesitation highly recommend Innovative for all your automotive needs. You’ll be in good hands there! – Chris

Had some custom work done on my ’48 Desoto here and I am very happy. Very knowledgeable and can do it all start to finish. Also had them restore an old Murray pedal car for my daughter that came out amazing. Just picked up a second pedal car and will definitely have them restore this one as well.
