3 Steps to Expect From Vehicle Wrap Repairs, Brooklyn, New York

A vinyl vehicle wrap is an effective way to market your business while you’re on the go. However, accidents happen, and the material can get scratched, torn, or otherwise damaged during everyday travel. Taking care of this right away is essential, as it can quickly worsen and require more extensive repairs or even a full replacement. Here’s what you should do, and what to expect, when your vehicle wrap needs repair.

What Happens During Vehicle Wrap Repairs?

1. Evaluating the Damage

If your vehicle wrap only has minor damage, such as a small scratch caused by a shopping cart, it can usually be repaired quickly using a patch. More extensive damage, such as that caused by an accident, might require additional repairs or even a partial replacement. That said, if the vehicle needs to be repainted, you may need to wait for it to cure before applying the new wrap or patch.

2. Cleaning & Repairing

vehicle wrapBefore a vehicle wrap patch can be applied, the entire area must be cleaned thoroughly to remove debris, wax, and grease. Your technician will use a microfiber towel and cleaning solution, and then sand down the affected area, so the vinyl patch is smooth. In the case of a deep scratch or gouge that went through the wrap to the paint, the professional will fill it in and create a flat surface.

3. Applying the Patch

Vehicle wraps can be repaired with a patch that matches the rest of the design perfectly. If you’ve had the wrap on your vehicle for some time, your technician may need to do some color correction on the patch to account for fading. Once it’s ready, and the damaged section will be removed, the new piece will be carefully placed and adhered with heat. When done properly, the repaired section should blend in perfectly and be unnoticeable.
