Discover why more people are swearing off spray on bed liners and choosing the DualLiner instead.
Problems with Spray On Bedliners Appearance
The quicker an installer can spray your liner on, the quicker they can move on to their next job and make a profit. As a result of this attitude of sprayers, quality suffers greatly and varies from shop to shop. When speed is their first concern, they skip over important prep steps or just skip the process entirely.
Common liner problems related to poor prep work:
- Flaking and Peeling
- Thin Spots
- Voids in Coverage
Those are problems with spray on bedliners themselves, but it can go way beyond a bad looking bed liner. Some “technicians” don’t take the masking-off process seriously enough and you can imagine the results from those guys! Many people with spray in liners report overspray on the rear window, the outer sides of the bed, and covered plugs/holes in the bed that shouldn’t be sprayed in the first place.
Think the warranty will cover any damages to your truck or the liner itself? Wrong! Manufacturers, as well as dealers & installers, of the spray in liners are notorious for pointing the finger of blame in someone else’s direction. The manufacturer will call it a dealer problem and vice versa.
Disappointing Results, Even When Done Right…
That’s not to say that good prep work for spray in liners is any better. To properly get the truck bed ready for the liner, the tech will have to thoroughly “clean” the truck bed — “cleaning” the truck bed usually means using harsh chemicals or a sanding that results in major damage to your factory paint job. When prep work ruins the paint underneath the liner, you can count on your paint warranty being voided and getting stuck with an awful looking truck bed when the liner comes off.
Even when all goes well and the spray in liner is properly applied, don’t expect spectacular results. Spray in liners usually show visible signs of fading within the first year and they are a very temporary product. The only thing that’s really permanent about spray in liners is the residue and remnants they leave behind after you try for hours to remove them.
