VINYL WRAP FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What is a wrap?
Vinyl wrapping, also referred to as a "color change”, is the process of applying a thin PVC based self adhesive film to the painted surface of your vehicle. It is important to note that a vinyl wrap is NOT a substitute for a paint job where restoration is required.
2. What is the benefit of wrapping my vehicle?
Vinyl wraps are a cost effective, removable alternative to customizing your vehicles color and finish. High quality vinyl wrap films can meet, and in some cases, exceed the depth and finish of modern paint.
3. Will the wrap damage my paint?
No. Removal of quality wrap film will not damage the OEM paint.
4. How long does it last?
With good care you can expect 3+ years. Good care entails regular cleaning, and use of a polymer based sealant and/or upkeep with a spray wax.
5. Can the wrap be removed?
Yes. The underlying OEM paint will be just as it was before installation.
6. How much does vehicle wrap cost?
This is determined by the vehicle size and the amount of coverage being requested. There are various types of vinyl finishes (i.e. gloss, satin, matte, brushed, carbon fiber, and chrome) that can affect the cost as well. Contact us for a vehicle specific estimate.
7. Will there be visible seams?
We make every attempt for a clean and flawless installation. However, depending on how favorable the body lines of the vehicle are and the limitations of the material (allowing up to 10-15% of stretch before affecting the finish) we may be required to inlay pieces into complex areas to increase durability.
8. How long does the process take?
Typically expect 24-72 hours depending on the extent of the coverage and the nature of the material that is being used (textured and chrome films take more time).
9. Is there a warranty?
We warrant our installations for 1-2 years from the installation date. Outside of this time frame the wraps durability is too subject to owner neglect.
10. How do I care for my wrap?
It is recommended that your vehicle be hand-washed. Automatic car washes can damage the wrap. NEVER use a pressure washer on wrapped surfaces. We do recommend using a polymer based sealer and upkeep with a spray wax or polymer based detail spray. We recommend Sonax, Avery, and Croftgate product lines.
