How Long Will The Vinyl Last On My Car?

When it comes to promoting your brand, you can never go wrong with vinyl vehicle wraps. Vehicle wraps are an affordable and effective way to advertise your business. Not only are they creative, they are also easy to install, remove, and replace. They can leave a very memorable mark in spreading your business’s message to lots of people.

Because of this marketing tool’s effectiveness and affordability, many business owners have opted for vehicle wraps. However, before doing so, there will always be questions about vehicle wraps. One of the most common yet also most important is: how long will the vinyl wrap last on the car?

Typically, vinyl car wraps can last for up to 7 years—given that it is well taken care of. Some last up to 4 to 5 years. The life of your vinyl will solely depend on the brand or the quality of the vinyl, the installation process, the exposure—basically on how you manage the vehicle itself.

Factors Affecting the Longevity of Vehicle Wrap

  • Installation – whether the vehicle wrap was installed professionally or by you yourself (DIY), it affects how long your vehicle wrap will last because mishaps like bubbles, creases, and dirt can cause the wrap to lift away from your car and peel, and this usually happens when not installed professionally
  • Exposure to Sunlight – the heat of the sun can be devastating to your vehicle wrap; although these vehicles are actually supposed to drive all day long, it is important to minimize the exposure especially when you live in hot and humid places
  • Exterior Maintenance – although vehicle wraps protects the original paint of your vehicle, they should still be regularly cleaned to avoid dirt, debris, and precipitation seeping into the seams and cause warping or discoloration

Taking care of your vinyl vehicle wrap is not so difficult when you really want it to last long. After all, they are designed to withstand a variety of temperatures, climates, and weather patterns. You just have to choose the right brand and quality of vehicle wrap. In addition, their longevity is increased with proper exterior maintenance and under normal driving conditions to avoid scratching or damaging the vinyl. Park your vehicle safely and away from direct sunlight when you intend to let it stay long. Follow these, and you will have a return on investment with these vehicle wraps!
