Will A Car Wrap Hide Hail Damage And Scratches?

If you are going to invest time and money into a car wrap for your business, you will want to keep it free from damage and scratches to the body as well as the paint on the vehicle. Thankfully, vehicle wraps can be applied over a car even if it has suffered any type of hail damage or scratches. This includes hail damage and scratches in the paint of the vehicle. Automotive wraps can be applied over the scratches and hail damage as they are designed to shrink down and form a tight contour around the hull no matter the current condition of the vehicle. While a car wrap can be placed over damage and scratches in the hull of the vehicle, there is a good chance that the damage will show through the vinyl wrap. In fact, the vinyl wrap attaches so closely to the hull that it can make hail damage and scratches even more noticeable to the public. Automotive wraps adhere so closely to the vehicle that it will eventually conform to the groove in the vehicle created by the damage.

Should My Car Be Repaired Before Applying The Vehicle Wrap?

Here are the reasons your car should be repaired before vehicle wraps are applied:

  • A vinyl vehicle wrap is really just a big sticker. Car paint scratches are often visible under car wraps since they follow the contour of the car including any scratches or hail damage. You don’t want the damage under automotive wraps to catch the attention of customers.
  • A vehicle that has peeling paint can be a challenge for vinyl vehicle wraps as the peeling paint can cause the wrap to not properly stick to the vehicle. This can result in air pockets and wrinkles in the vinyl vehicle wrap.
  • Once a vinyl vehicle wrap is professionally installed on a car, it will prevent the vehicle from suffering any future damage by protecting the original paint job from any further dents or scratches.

Automotive Wraps Will Protect Your Vehicle

Automotive wraps protect a vehicle from outside forces such as dirt, dust, oil, road debris and hail damage that can stain a vehicle as well as dent or scratch its exterior. In addition, vehicle wraps help to keep the resale value of the car from decreasing thanks to the protection it provides the vehicle from dents and scratches on the original paint job of the vehicle. Once the decision is made to remove the car wrap, the appearance of the vehicle under a car wrap will be in the same condition it was when the automotive wrap was placed over the exterior of the vehicle.
