Typically you can expect your wrap to last up to 5 years. However there are many variables that will dictate the lifespan of your wrap. Much like the car itself, it all depends on how well the vehicle is maintained. The greatest wear to your wrap is UV radiation. Even with UV protection in the laminate, ultimately the sun will win. The vinyl on a car that is garaged will outlive one that is never covered. Avoid high pressure car washes that can potentially lift the vinyl and cause adhesive failure. Hand-washing with mild liquid detergent is the best. There are specially designed products to clean and polish vinyl graphics. Ask us for further details.
We understand the concern about giving up your vehicle for such a radical change over. A properly installed wrap using premium vinyl products will actually protect your car’s paint.
With a professionally installed wrap the vehicle paint will be just as pristine as the day it was installed.
