A common concern heard from people considering all of the ways a vinyl wrap can help your business and your vehicle is how long until the color starts to fade? This and the more general question, how long will my vinyl wrap last, are all over forums and trade magazines. While the exact answer depends on a number of factors, we’re here to set the record straight on what you can expect through the life of a vinyl car wrap.
Protect Your Paint
To start, let’s talk about one of the biggest concerns people have. It’s a common myth that a wrap will damage the paint on your vehicle. In fact, a vinyl wrap will protect your car’s paint from chips, scratches, and fading since the paint won’t be exposed to the elements.
How Long Does a Wrap Last?
The average lifespan of a vinyl wrap is five to seven years, but that depends on a few things. The quality of the wrap and installation will make a big difference, but how you care for your wrap will affect how long it lasts too. There are other reasons your wrap might come off before the five year mark. Maybe you need an upgrade to your commercial graphics or your wrap has been damaged.
Will It Fade?
No! High quality wraps will keep their color for the entire life of the wrap. High temperatures and UV rays are not a concern with a high quality wrap. Always discuss the material your wrap company uses and ask to see pictures of work they’ve done to make sure you’re getting a quality wrap and a great installation.
