How Long Do Car Wraps Last?

June 15, 2020

When people are thinking about using car wrapping services, one of the questions that arise frequently is "how long do wrapping services last?"

 

 
The answer to this question, we reply that car wraps are durable and can last from five to seven years.

However, some factors can impact how long you can expect your car wrap to last.

Vinyl Quality - Using a high-quality vinyl base can help minimize fading in custom car wraps. Like many other materials, car wraps with extended exposure to UV rays can fade over time. Choosing a vinyl wrap that features additional UV protection can protect the integrity of your custom wrap.

Care - While you don't have to worry about scratched or faded paint on your vehicle once you have a car wrap installed, it still requires care. Keeping it washed helps to keep vinyl car wraps in the best shape. When cleaning, be sure to remove corrosive materials, bird droppings, and dead insects from the exterior as quickly as possible.

Steps You Can Take To Preserve Your Vehicle Wrap

When you notice any small damages to the wrap, the sooner you can schedule a repair, the better. In doing so, you can avert a more extensive repair or the need to replace the entire vinyl vehicle wrap.

Generally, the more the vehicle gets exposed to the elements, the higher the chances are for damages such as fading. One potential risk of too much sun exposure is having the wrap "bake" into the original paint.

Try to use covered or shaded parking as much as possible to help protect your wrapped car from extended exposure to the potentially damaging and hot rays of the sun.

The Advantages Of Car Wrapping Services

Vehicle wrapping services are ideal for individuals and business owners alike.

Individuals can add personal style to their vehicles, and reap the benefit of protecting their original paint from fading, scratches, and hail damage. If you always dreamed of having a purple car, applying a vinyl car wrap is a way to do it without investing in a giant paint job.

Business owners can use vinyl vehicle wraps strategically to advertise and promote their businesses. Also, they can benefit from using a company car that qualifies for tax write-offs and deductions.

Regardless if driven for business or pleasure, anyone who leases a vehicle can help protect against exterior damage by installing a car wrap. When it's time to turn the car back in, remove the wrap.
