They don't offer any kind of protection from the wind or cold weather like tar paper would , its just for looks if thats what you your looking for . The one thing I'd be worried about is if water got behind the wrap and kept the wood wet and damp for long periods

Oh I had no expectation to use it for anything other than making the box look cool! I was just wondering if anyone thought they may just fade out and fall off. Good point about the water, though. I'm afraid it may not let the wood breathe properly. Any thoughts if it may adversely affect the heat either staying or leaving the box?

You would still need to paint the box since the plastic would keep the wood wet. I see zero functional benefits although the aesthetics look great.
