Car films offer a range of benefits that make them a popular choice among vehicle owners who prioritize protection and aesthetics. Here are some of the key advantages of using protective films for cars:

  1. Protection against weather damage: car protective films are designed to withstand weather conditions such as rain, snow, hail, and harmful UV rays. This helps prevent the deterioration of the bodywork over time.
  2. Scratch and debris damage prevention: Car films create a protective layer that helps prevent scratches and damage caused by stones, insects, tree resin, and other debris and substances, acidic or not, that can damage the vehicle’s surface during driving.
  3. Enhancement of car aesthetics: Generally, car films are transparent, and once applied, they give a super glossy effect to the paint, enhancing its overall aesthetics.

Installation of car protective films: DIY or Professional?

An important decision to make is whether to install protective car films yourself or rely on a professional. While DIY installation may seem like a cheaper option, it’s important to consider some factors before deciding.

Installing protective car films requires a certain level of experience and skill to achieve optimal results. If you lack experience in applying films or don’t have the right equipment, you could incur costly damage, including:

  • Improper removal of the film may damage parts due to its strong adhesive.
  • Failure to prepare the surface carefully may result in leaving debris under the film or bubbles that would damage the final result.
  • Proper application of car films requires removing some protruding parts of the vehicle such as emblems, handles… Without the skills or experience, you could damage something.

On the other hand, relying on a professional specialized in the installation of protective films can guarantee high-quality results. Professionals have the experience and skills necessary to apply the films evenly and without defects, ensuring optimal protection for your vehicle.

Furthermore, many professionals like us offer warranties on the installation of films, providing additional peace of mind and protection in case of any issues.

Warranty and Maintenance of Car Films

[back to table of contents]

Many  car protective films offer a limited warranty to protect consumers from manufacturing defects and installation problems. The duration and terms of the warranty may vary depending on the manufacturer and the type of protective film. It’s important to carefully read the warranty details before making a purchase.

As for the maintenance of car films, it’s advisable to follow the manufacturer’s or installer’s instructions to ensure optimal film lifespan. Here’s one of the fundamental maintenance tips for car films:

  • Hand washing: Avoid using a pressure washer to clean your car, as the high pressure acting on the edges and corners of the car could peel off pieces of film. Also, as mentioned earlier, car films get much less dirty, ensuring a reduction in the number of washes and faster cleaning; a damp cloth will suffice!
