Common Misconceptions About Car Wraps

Though vinyl car wraps have been a cost-effective and viable option for many years, there are several lingering myths and misconceptions that deter vehicle owners from choosing one. Whether it is a concern about longevity or window visibility, there are many common misconceptions about car wraps.

That is why we have compiled a list of 4 of the most common car wrap myths to debunk them and demonstrate how beneficial car wraps can be for personal and business use.

Car Wrap Myths

Should you choose a partial or full wrap?

4 Common Car Wrap Myths

The following statements are some of the most common misconceptions surrounding car wraps:

1. Car Wraps do not Last Long

The lifespan of a vehicle wrap will depend on how well it is maintained and the frequency at which it is exposed to extreme weather conditions. In most cases, car wraps can last anywhere from five to nine years, making them a durable and lasting option for most vehicles.

2. Vinyl Wraps Damage the Car’s Paint

A properly installed vinyl wrap will not damage the car’s underlying paint so long as the paint has fully cured and is in good condition. Before applying a vinyl wrap, make sure that any new paint has had at least 90 days to cure and that there are no bubbles or other damage in the paint.

3. Car Wraps Require Extensive Maintenance

In most cases, a high-quality vinyl car wrap will require less maintenance than paint. To keep your vinyl wrap in pristine condition, you will simply need to clean it regularly with a soft washcloth and a gentle cleaner. It is also highly recommended to avoid pressure washers and automated car washes, as the pressurized water can damage the wrap.

4. It is Unsafe to Wrap a Window

While many people are concerned that applying vinyl wrap to windows will impair the driver’s vision, vinyl vehicle wraps are perforated with tiny holes in the areas where they cover window glass. These holes allow the driver to see through the glass as well as they would be able to if the window was not wrapped.
