Installing Outside Window Graphics in Hot Weather

by Sheldon Rayman on July 9, 2015

Installing window graphics is fairly straightforward, especially if you live in a temperate climate where it doesn’t feel like a furnace when you step outside.

However, we live in Las Vegas, where certain days can overwhelm you with the heat. So applying window graphics either to a car or a storefront can have its own special issues. It’s not a problem once the graphics have been installed. We just need to make sure the glass isn’t too hot, and the installers actually know what they’re doing.

Therefore, it must be installed on a cooler day, or early on in the day when the outside temperatures are not quite as high. Our installers have an easier time placing vinyl graphics on vehicle windows over storefront windows due to their portability.

If it gets too hot outside, installers can always move the vehicle to a temperature-controlled garage where the air is much cooler and the window graphics vinyl won’t melt.

That being said, the best time to install new window graphics is right when a store opens. That new store needs advertising from the very beginning. That means, if you’re opening a store in the middle of summer, we’ll find a way to put the graphics on, even if it means working very early in the morning.
