Car Paint Or Car Foil? Find Out What’s Best For You!
Are you planning to change the presence of your personal/company vehicle? You have two choices. You can either repaint your vehicle or get a vehicle wrap. What’s better for your vehicle, painting or wrapping? The two alternatives have a few favorable circumstances and a few downsides. In this article, we will go over the most significant differences between vehicle wraps and vehicle paint.
Repainting a car properly might take you between 3-4 weeks. With regards to vehicle wraps, the entire procedure takes substantially less time. Generally speaking, wrapping a vehicle shouldn't take over 3 days.
If you decide to paint your car, there’s no going back. Vehicle wraps, on the other hand, are easily removable and great if you own a company vehicle and want to implement new marketing campaigns through your transport vehicles. Furthermore, a good vehicle wrap won't harm the paint underneath and will keep the car’s original paint protected. We always recommend using a quality foil like 3M, MACTAC or others. You can contact us to know which brand is the best for you.
Repainting a vehicle can negatively affect its resale price. Wrapping a vehicle will enable you to change the vehicle's appearance while keeping the OEM paint flawless, bringing about a higher resale rate.
With regards to painting your vehicle, you could get a low-quality paint work for about 1500 AED but for higher-quality paint work, it may cost you somewhere in the range of 3,500 AED to 18,000 AED or more. The costs of properly installed vehicle wraps extend from 5,000 AED to 18,000 AED. The good news is, TransTech provides this service at a fraction of the cost without sacrificing quality.
Note: The costs above expect a full paint or wrap. The expense can be much lower contingent upon what needs to be fixed.
The longevity of paint work may rely upon the quality of paint utilized. Lower-end paint work will last two or three years. Good quality paint work can survive forever when done right and taken proper care of.
A vehicle wrap will last somewhere in the range of 4 and 10 years without harming the first paint. However, in the unfortunate case of someone scratching your car, you will have to replace the foil unlike paint, which can easily be buffed and polished off.
Painted vehicles require a considerable amount of care to keep the paint looking gleaming and new. It's important to wash and wax the vehicle all the time.
With a vehicle wrap, you'll invest significantly less energy maintaining it. The main thing you must do is keep the surface clean. You can simply wipe it with a wet microfiber cloth. Regardless of whether you decide to do this or not, no major harm will be made to the foil.
If your vehicle’s body is in a bad condition, wrapping your vehicle with foil will not hide these defects. Instead they might seem more prominent. In this case, you must repaint the vehicle first, making sure there are no dents or deep scratches.
In every other case, we prescribe vehicle wraps. It requires significantly less investment to have your vehicle wrapped than to have it repainted. Moreover, the wrap will keep the OEM paint flawless and you can always change your mind and go for a new color.
