Thinking of having your vehicle tinted? This can be one of the best upgrades for your vehicle if you avoid the pitfalls. Here are 3 car window tint tips to help you get a job you will love.
Car Window Tint Tips To Avoid a Bad Tint Job
- Ask To Stop By The Shop To See Some Installations – A reputable shop will be happy to have a potential customer stop by and see the quality of their work. No matter what someone says, there is no way to fake the quality of installation. Look at the edges of roll down windows and for excessive dirt, bubbles or creases in the window tint. If you are not happy with the samples they show you, chances are you will not be happy with the installation on your vehicle.
- Ask About The Performance Characteristics of the Window Tint Being Used – Reputable tinting companies will be installing quality window tint films. Most companies offer multiple lines of window film that have differing performance characteristics at a variety of price points. Request the details about the construction, appearance and performance of the window films you are considering. Make sure when comparing two different tint installation companies that you are comparing apples to apples regarding the tint quality they are quoting. One may have a lower price, but it may be for a less expensive, lower performing window film.
- Ask About The Tint Warranty – Make sure you ask about the warranty of the tint you’re considering and what exactly is covered by that warranty. Many modern window tint films come with a lifetime warranty on the original purchaser, and some offer transferrable warranties. Again, make sure you are comparing apples to apples when considering two different window tint options.
As a final note, make sure you understand the window tint laws in your area. A reputable shop will be able to explain the law to you and how the tint you are considering compares to that law.
