Liner protects your truck bed from damage and is a great investment. There are many different types of liners on the market that you can choose from, including options for DIY and professional application. We’ve already written about the benefits of having a professional apply your bedliner (check that out on our blog), but how can you choose what type of liner to get?
In this article, we’ll focus on the differences between spray-on and roll-on bedliner. We’ve also written about spray-on vs drop-in liners and spray-on liners vs truck bed carpets. In all of these cases, spray-on bed liner is the clear choice.
Here are some reasons why spray-on liner is better than roll-on liner:
Spray-on truck bed liner looks great. It has a rugged appearance while still looking professional. Roll-on liner tends to look more choppy, especially if it is applied as a DIY project. You’ll likely notice roller marks with roll-on liner, whereas the spray is smoother and more uniform.
Additionally, roll-on liner takes longer to dry and during this time, you have to make sure nothing gets on the bed, or it will affect the appearance. For example, insects can fly into the area and get stuck on the roll-on liner. This is not an issue with professional spray-on bedliner.
You’ll need to reapply roll-on bedliner more frequently to maintain its appearance. Our liner, on the other hand, creates a permanent protective seal. It can last for the lifetime of your truck bed and with Rhino Linings, you can take advantage of our Nationwide Limited Lifetime Warranty.*
3. Better Protection
Spray-on liners provide better protection against physical and chemical damage. While the roll-on variety does offer some protection, it is less durable. If you are using your truck to haul cargo often, professional bedliner spray is well worth the investment. Our sprays are engineered to withstand even the toughest conditions and keep your truck bed in top condition.
The textured surface of Rhino liners prevents cargo from slipping around. The surface is more slip-resistant than is the case for roll-on liners. With a roll-on liner, items in your truck bed can slide around and get damaged, or can damage the sides of the bed.
5. Full Coverage
With roll-on liner, it’s easier to miss a spot or two, or to cover an area you don’t intend you. This is especially true if you are applying the liner on your own, which is more common for the roll-on variety. When you choose Rhino Linings, our professional installers will ensure full coverage for your truck bed.
