2. Does the weather affect vehicle wraps?
No. A well-applied vehicle wrap, installed by a professional with the relevant skills and experience, using high-quality vinyl and strong adhesive, won’t be affected by extremes in weather, including hot sun, heavy snow or pouring rain. But, remember, if the vehicle you’re thinking of wrapping is regularly subjected to wet weather, check for major signs of rust. If you do find any, get the area treated before getting the wrap, as vehicle wraps won’t stick properly to rust.
3. Do vehicle wraps affect paintwork?
No. Your vehicle wrap, as long as it’s been properly applied by a professional vehicle wrapping specialist, won’t affect the paintwork of the vehicle, even when the vehicle wrap is eventually removed. In fact, having a vehicle wrap installed goes a long way to protecting the paintwork of the vehicle from minor abrasions caused by stone chips, grit, and other particles your vehicle encounters during everyday use.
4. Can vehicle wraps be washed?
Yes, you can still wash your vehicle if it has a vehicle wrap. If you wash the vehicle regularly however, handwashing would be preferable, as the brushes of automatic carwashes will eventually start lifting the vinyl.
Also, be wary of car polishes after washing your wrapped vehicle, as some polishes contain abrasives that may damage the vinyl. Instead, look out for specialist polishes designed for polishing wrapped vehicles.
5. Can vehicle wraps be repaired?
Yes, vehicle wraps can be repaired, should they get damaged or be suffering from general wear and tear. This is because the wraps are installed in sections which can be easily replaced by a vehicle wrapping professional if required.
