Vancouver Signs l How long will my vehicle wrap last?

 

truck wrapThere are lots of questions you need to consider before purchasing a vehicle wrap but probably the most important is how long will it last?  Like most things, quality matters so we have put together a few things for you to consider:

Material -Vehicle wrap comes in a a variety of qualities.  Inexpensive materials are known as calendared and don't conform as well to contours or last as long as more expensive cast materials.

Ask about warranties.  Quality cast vinyls come with a guarantee of at least five years and will stand up to our tough climate.

Lamination - Your vehicle wrap is part of a team.  The vinyl is the flashy quarterback while the laminate is the unsung hero of the team that makes it all work.  Laminates are a clear layer that is applied to the laminate to protect your wrap from UV rays and weather.  Like wrap vinyl, laminates come in a variety of qualities. 

Installation - You've probably hear this before but the quality of your installation will greatly impact how long your vehicle wrap will last.  Things such as overlapping seams to prevent lifting, installing door handles and understanding the nuances of window perf installations will ensure your wrap will last as long as its warranty. What's the point on spending good money for a material with a 5 year guarantee only to find seams are lifting after a year.

Care - Like all things automotive, car wraps need to be treated property. I've covered this in a previous post so I'll let you take a look.

So, let's cut to the chase.  If you purchase a good quality wrap, made from good materials and well installed it should last at least 5 years. It may cost a little more but its worth it.
