How Long Does Vehicle Wrap Usually Last?, Brooklyn, New York

A vehicle wrap can be an eye-catching and cost-effective way to gain exposure for your business or organization. Besides the cost of the initial design and installation work, a vehicle wrap will continue to pay for itself many times over  — as long as it’s installed by a qualified expert. Brooklyn’s DTM Signs and Truck Wraps has years of experience managing the design and installation of a wide range of signage and advertising services. Below, this team of professionals explains how long you should expect your vehicle wrap to last once it’s installed.

Many people assume that vinyl car or truck wraps don’t last very long. The truth is that the lifetime of your vehicle wrap is actually based on how well you care for your vehicle. If your vehicle wrap is well cared for, it can last an average of five to seven years.

If you live in a very hot or cold climate, you may find these extreme temperatures taking a toll on your wrap over time. Additionally, debris and dirt on the road can wear down your vinyl wrap as it ages.

You can help extend the life of your vehicle wrap by being selective with what kind of material you choose for the design. Matte vinyl looks extremely professional, but it also lacks a clear coat that provides additional protection against the elements. Printed, glossy wraps, on the other hand, are sealed with a clear laminate to help keep your design looking impeccable. Additionally, regular car washes and opting to park in shaded spots or parking garages (when possible) are also great at boosting the life span of your vehicle wrap.
