At Cliff Digital of Los Angeles, we warranty our installations. If your wrapped vehicle is in a car accident, that portion of the wrap can be replaced. However, the vinyl manufacturers warranties cover their vinyl materials and come with their own manufacturer’s warranties.
The best care for your vehicle or car wrap is to have the car garaged and cleaned often. Waxing must be done with a non-Carnauba Wax.
Removing a Vehicle Wrap
The longer the wrap or vinyl lettering is on your vehicle exposed to the sun or extreme cold, the more difficult it is to remove. Generally wraps should be removed every 3 years. They usually come off easier in the summer when it is warm or we use heat to remove them in the winter.
Causes of Vehicle Wrap Damage
Usually factory painted vehicles are completely safe for vinyl wraps and vinyl lettering. Wrapping your vehicle or removing an older car wrap might damage your unbaked non-factory paint job.
The risk of paint peeling off with a vinyl wrap increases with the length of time the wrap was allowed to sit in the sun. Accessory parts of the cars can be affected for example plastic and rubber parts, trim around windows that may be painted, etc. Repeated wrapping and rewrapping can eventually take the paint off over a period of years.
