It’s understandable that when a business invests in vehicle wraps in MA that they might be concerned about its well-being in harsh New England weather. Not only do they want to ensure their money was well spent and that it looks great enough to represent their brand.
The short answer for if the ice and snow will impact your wrap is no, if your cover stays well maintained. With so much technology put into improving wraps, vinyl is known to stand up well to the conditions of the road, including salt. That said, you have the potential of damaging your vehicle by using sharp objects to get rid of the snow and ice.
Instead of using shovels or scrapers, which can scratch your vinyl, it’s often suggested to use a soft cloth to remove these items. The best way to avoid ice and snow build up is to park your business vehicles under a structure or in a garage. In general, this a great practice for your car to maintain its paint, but it also applies to wraps.
It’s also important to keep up with your vehicle in the winter the same way you do in spring, summer, and fall. Create and stick to a specific cleaning schedule to avoid accumulation of salt and other elements on your vinyl. Vinyl is resistant to the properties of road salt, but with time salt can impact its integrity if left on for too long.
To summarize, you have little to fear in general when it comes to weather and the safety of your wraps and truck lettering in MA as long as you keep up with it. Much like anything in life, leaving it unattended for too long can create problems sooner rather than later.
