4 Signs Your Car Wrap Needs to be Replaced

4 Signs Your Car Wrap Needs to be Replaced brand it wrap it

No matter what type of wrap you have, it is important to know the common signs of wear and tear

Many businesses use vehicle wraps for advertising their products and standing out from the competition. Car wraps are a great way to bring in customers without breaking the bank. No matter what type of wrap you have, it is important to know the common signs of wear and tear. Recognizing these signs of damage is the best way to determine when it is time to replace your vinyl wrap. Here are some signs that indicate your car wrap needs to be replaced.

Your Car Wrap is Fading

Over time, the colors on a vinyl wrap may fade if exposed to consistent harsh sunlight or heat. Parking under cover or in the shade can reduce damage, but some fading is still likely to occur due to driving around daily. A faded or spotty wrap can negatively impact your customers’ impression of your business and make text difficult to read. If you notice signs of fading, it may be worth repairing or replacing the wrap.

The Vinyl is Peeling

If the vinyl wrap on your car is lifting, peeling, or curling, then it needs to be repaired or replaced. Vinyl installed on cars might peel or lift due to the vinyl being overstretched. Poor installation can cause the adhesive to fail. Improper washing with a pressure washer or high-pressure car wash can also cause your wrap to peel, so it is important only to use recommended cleaning methods.  Therefore, it is essential to take your car to see your wrap installer and ask them to fix it.


Another sign that your car wrap needs replacing is that bubbles begin to form under the vinyl. Bubbles are usually a result of improper installation. The wrap did not adhere to the car properly, and air pockets developed under the vinyl.

Stains on Your Car Wrap

Any liquids, such as oil, juice, coffee, etc., spilled on your vehicle wrap need to be cleaned up immediately. If not, this may cause stains. Stains can also occur due to insects or birds if they are not removed from a car right away. Once stains set in, they can be challenging to remove. If a large stain appears on your vinyl wrap, you may need to repair or replace the entire thing.
