If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your car’s exterior, you will usually think about repainting the entire body. However, repainting a car can take a long time to dry (it can take weeks to dry completely), not to mention the cost is quite expensive. Even so, there are some limitations on what can be done.
If you want to change the exterior appearance of your car but don’t want to repaint then an alternative solution is car wrap houston.
What is a car wrap? Car wrapping is a treatment for the exterior of your car that can provide a more attractive exterior appearance while eliminating the faded impression of old paint. A wrap is a large vinyl or sticker image applied directly over the original vehicle paint. The application of car wrapping allows you to change the appearance of the vehicle in a very short time. The car wrap allows you to remove the wrapping at any time and return the vehicle to its original state if needed.
How is the car wrapping process?
Car and vehicle wraps, including bus wraps and fleet wraps, consist of three stages. The first phase is the design phase which includes getting accurate measurements for the vehicle and the graphic design that will be applied. Then the second phase is the production phase where the graphic is printed and then laminated to protect the vinyl from scuffs and UV rays which can cause the graphic to fade over time. The final phase or the third phase is the installation / application of vinyl car wrap houston to your vehicle. In some cases there may even be a fourth phase, i.e. deletion of graphics on request.
Car wrapping can be done with full or partial wrapping. The half partial wrapping usually covers the entire rear and half of the vehicle, and includes the hood logo. The three-quarter partial car wrapping usually covers the entire rear of the vehicle and most of the vehicle, and includes the hood logo. Usually, full wrap covers the entire surface of the vehicle. Not included in the package is the roof, roof covering is additional.
JUst like any other paint job, the details of a vinyl car wrap definitely require proper care if it wishes to remain as dazzling as painted. We recommend that you wash car wraps by hand, at least once a week, using a cleaning agent that is specially adapted to vinyl wrap. Automatic washing is not recommended for wrapped cars as automatic washing can cause irreversible damage. Car wrapping is a huge and time-consuming job, but it is invaluable for keeping the car’s appearance new.
Car wrapping can last a very long time if cared for properly. If done professionally and diligently cared for, car wrapping work can last for about 7 years. Typically, customers begin to see a difference in quality in about 4 to 5 years; colors, sparkles and shades are starting to show their age. However, this is only a minor and natural problem, in contrast to the scars of an ugly craft, such as bubbles, creases, and the wrapping is lifting prematurely due to dirt. Overall, car wrapping is a great investment made to last.
