Dusyk & Barlow  - COVID-19 continued service plan for the health and safety of staff and customers


Dear Dusyk & Barlow clients


We have been working diligently to develop plans for our offices in preparation for the potential impacts of COVID-19.  We are constantly referencing and utilizing the information available from World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Health Canada to create and update these plans as needed.


Using the information currently available, we have implemented various staff safety protocols including:

  • requirements that employees remain at home if they or an immediate member of their household are not feeling well and have symptoms of an illness, until the symptoms have passed. 

  • those experiencing flu-like symptoms, are required to consult a doctor or call the health line to seek medical care/advice.  

  • Staff who are in positions that allow remote work will be able to do so if they find themselves in a quarantine situation that allows for such an option. We are working to ensure we are properly set-up for work from home options.  

  • we have implemented a ban on business travel and are encouraging staff to change out of office appointments of more than 10 people, even here in the city, to telephone appointments.


We have ramped up daily office cleaning routines including regularly wiping down and sanitizing workspace and counter areas. 

We encourage both our employees and clients to maintain good health practices including: 

  • washing hands properly and regularly; 

  • using hand sanitizer whenever possible; 

  • maintaining a healthy lifestyle (ex. proper diet, sleep and exercise) to help keep the immune system strong; 

  • respecting social distances when appropriate (ex. 2 meter distance; respect choice to not shake hands).


Although we prefer to deal with our clients face-to-face, we are in a business where most of our services can still be effectively provided in a socially distanced fashion such as via telephone or email.  As such, we ask that our clients observe the same protocols we are asking of our staff. For the good of all in the community, we ask that clients please remain home if they, or anyone they have been in close contact with, are experiencing any symptoms listed above.  If those experiencing symptoms do require our services, rest assured we will do so via telephone, email or fax.


We want to protect the health and well-being of our employees and clients and, if need be, will amend plans accordingly by continuing to monitor recommendations through the noted health agencies.

CAN BERGENS AUTO BODY GUARANTEE PAINT MATCHING?


Q: WILL THE PAINT MATCH ON MY VEHICLE AFTER MY AUTO BODY / COLLISION REPAIRS ARE DONE?

So you need to get you car fixed after an accident or collision. A safe repair is most important to the customers of our body shop in Regina, SK   but most consumers of newer vehicles are really concerned that the vehicle gets returned to its factory appearance. There are many techniques we employ to make a color match exactly to the rest of the factory paint on the car, such as blending and tinting. As auto body repair professionals we are faced with many challenges in matching the factory paint, so we thought we would share the process and challenges with you.

First challenge: The Factory Standard

The first challenge is the factory standard. Today, the average paint code has between three to seven alternates that are worth formulating. There is actually more but the auto paint manufacturers have narrowed them to down to keep the databases simple to use.

So why do the car manufacturers have so many variances?

Most manufacturers have three major paint suppliers. The manufacturer decides on a standard color for production and submits a painted sample to their suppliers. The paint manufacturer then produces a formula for the “standard sample” and is allowed a tolerance of plus or minus 5% when they deliver the paint.

Second challenge: Manufacturers geographical variance

The plant in the east coast may be getting a 5% shade greener on a blue metallic standard and the plant in the west coast may be getting a 5% shade violet on the same blue metallic standard. When compared side by side, they look like a completely different colour. This is the reason the paint manufacturers usually have the standard formula followed by two alternates. If the alternates are not available, the painter in the body shop usually mixes the standard formula and tints it accordingly.

The second reason for variances in paint colours is the metallic colour applications. The metallic colours are now classified in 7 categories. Extra fine, fine, medium, medium coarse, coarse, and extra coarse. The metallic colours control the value (lightness and darkness) of the color similar to what white does in a pastel color.



Metallic colors will cause variances in color when applied. Temperature, paint film thickness, flash off time between coats, fluid tip sizes, speed of the spray gun, surface type (Plastic or Metal) and humidity will all cause the color to shift lighter or darker.

The rule of thumb: the longer it takes to dry, the darker the color will change as it dries. This is caused by pigment flotation. The metallic flakes will settle down to the bottom of the paint film and push the pigment up causing the color to shift darker.

Yet despite these challenges, a good auto body painter can match your factory paint, using manufacturers’ paint codes, spray panel testing, and here at Bergens we have decades of good old-fashioned experience. 

So the answer is yes, the paint will match if you are using a reputable body shop like Bergens.
