Houstonians love their trucks. And in Texas, it is not because it’s the “in” thing to have. Many haul and work with their trucks, from hauling lumber to small farm animals. Of course, Houstonians love to use their trucks for playtime, too. A truck is central to many Houstonians’ lives. Because of this, the truck bed takes a lot of use and abuse. This can cause dents and scratches to your truck bed. However, with a spay on bedliner, you can protect your truck bed. Here are 5 benefits of spray on bedliners for your truck.
Protects Against Rust and Corrosion
Normally, your truck’s bed is covered by a layer or two of auto body paint. All it takes is a 2×4 scraping the bottom of the bed to scratch the paint all the way to the metal. That exposed metal can then rust in this Houston humidity. A spray on bed liner completely coats your truck bed’s surface and creates an air and watertight seal. They are meant to be much tougher and stronger than a coat of paint, so you can put whatever you need on the bed of your truck and not worry about creating spots that are going to rust later.
Maintaining Value of Your Truck
Speaking of rust spots, they not only damage the integrity of your truck but chip away at your truck’s value. A majority of truck owners sell or trade-in their trucks to upgrade to a newer truck. A spray on bedliner helps a truck owner keep the most value they can of the existing truck by reducing the risk factor of further wear and tear after using the truck bed.
We have established that the equipment and furniture you haul can damage the truck bed. However, you also have to consider that what you are hauling could be damaged too. Truck beds are inherently slick, making things easy to slide around. Spray on bedliners are non-slip, protecting not only the bed of your truck but the stuff you are hauling as well. As a bonus, you’re creating a safer surface for you or your friends if you ever decide to hop in the bed of the truck, whether it’s for work or play.
Another benefit of getting a spray on bed liner is that it will fit your individual truck bed perfectly. With drop-in liners, you have to take a bunch of measurements in order to get it close to a good fit, and even then, you are probably going to lose some space in your truck’s bed. With spray on bedliner, you get a perfect fit and get to keep your truck’s bed space.
Spay on bedliners is fairly low maintenance. They rarely get damaged. In the rare instance they do, spray on liners can be easily repaired. They do not warp like drop-in bedliners do. Bed liners reduce the amount of repair and maintenance your truck will need overall because you do not have to worry about chips in your paint or rust spots on the bed.
As you can see, there are several benefits of spray on bedliners for your truck. If you’re like many here in Houston and love your truck, one of the best things you can do for your truck is get a spay on bedliner. Your truck will thank you.
