One of the most common questions we get is, How long can I expect my wrap to last?
This question varies depending on several factors, but the short answer is, about 5 years.
The factors we usually mention are if the surface is vertical or horizontal.
Let’s say that they surface is vertical, that means that once a day the surface receives the full force of the sun, but if you have a horizontal surface, the sun spends a large amount of the day on this surface causing more damage to this surface than the vertical surfaces. This means that surfaces like the hood and roof usually last a little less time.
Another thing that can cause the wrap to falter sooner is less/compromised material, such as window perf. This material gives the appearance from the outside of the window of a solid piece of material, but in reality, you can see through from the inside with the small holes. This essential makes it that there is about half the material. This causes the material to wear sooner.
Another thing that can cause the wrap to age faster is not washing the wrap regularly. When the dirt gets baked on with the sun, it can damage the vinyl.
Even with the fact that the wrap technically won’t last forever, it is still an amazing advertising investment. With how effective the wrap will prove to be, you will want to take care of it and your new advertising investment!
