How long does a vinyl wrap last?
You should expect your car wrap to last roughly five to seven years, depending on the finish and proper maintenance. This of course can depend on a number of factors that contribute to wear and tear.
Wraps do not last as long on vehicles that are out on the road every day and in the sun a lot. With heavy wear and tear like this, the life expectancy may be as short as a few years. However, even something as simple as parking in the shade could increase the life expectancy of your vehicle wrap dramatically, to around three or four years. Vehicles that experience lighter use can often have wraps that last seven years or more. Under normal conditions, the average lifespan of a vehicle wrap is about five years.
Another factor that can impact wrap lifespan is the quality of the installation. A wrap that’s not properly installed can start showing signs of early wear, bubbling and edges coming unwrapped.
What are the Benefits of a Vinyl Wrap?
Vinyl car wraps protect your OEM paint and are 100% removable.
Warranties and/or lease agreements remain valid. Painting can void warranties, increase the cost of insurance, and is not even an option with a lease.
Cost for a vinyl vehicle wrap is considerably less than a comparable paint job. Vinyl car wraps wear as well as paint when properly maintained. The vinyl can protect the paint underneath.
Vinyl car wraps can come in any color, even custom designed and can have a matte, semi-gloss, gloss, carbon fiber, metallic flake, finishes.
Affordably customize parts of your car. You do not have to wrap your entire car; just your hood, roof, mirrors, stripes, etc.
In the event that repairs are needed, the part that was damaged can be easily replaced, providing a perfect match.
Can you wrap a car with paint scratches, dents or rust?
Vinyl wrap film is thin and flexible, which allows it to conform beautifully to the contours of your vehicle. So while it can be applied over imperfections, like paint chips, be aware that it will conform to them – not cover them. Before spending the time and money to wrap a damaged or rusted vehicle, we recommend repairing it first.
Another thing to consider is that wrap vinyl will not properly adhere to unpainted surfaces, plastic and rubber.
When I am ready to remove my vehicle wrap, will it damage or pull up the vehicles paint?
When properly installed, removing your wrap should not damage an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) paint finish upon removal, however there are some circumstances where removing a wrap could affect the underlying paint job, such as...
- Low quality after market paint job.
- Improperly painted clear coat
Do I have to wash my vehicle before installation?
Yes. All vehicles have to be free of dust, mud, pollen, and other agents that may interfere with adhesion or cause bubbling to occur after installation.
