Our Most Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Window Tinting
Below are some of the most common questions we are asked about window tinting.
Can you tint my windows in wet or cold conditions?
Absolutely! With the modern adhesives found in today’s window tinting products, you can tint your vehicle even in the most freezing conditions without having to worry. However, the curing time may be extended during extreme conditions. Our professional installers will ensure that they take more time to apply heat to the edges of the tint to activate and expedite the drying process. Make sure to purchase high quality, name brand products to maximize the life of your tint!
What causes window tinting to bubble and how can I fix it?
UV rays from the sun that are responsible for damaging your cars interior and excessive heat build-up are usually the cause of bubbles forming in the window tint. The bubbles are a result of a failure in the adhesive system. Protect yourself from this potential problem by purchasing a major brand name window tint material. The major window tint manufacturers, in their high performance and metal window tints, have a high temperature adhesive system and 99% of UV protection capabilities, which along with the metalizing technology, allows them to give a manufacture backed guarantee against bubbling of window tinting. These films are available from most reputable dealers such as ourselves.
How durable is the tinting on the windows?
One question asked thousands of times about durability is, “Will my kids tear it up?” We are glad to report this is not a problem. Pets are also a concern but damage is usually confined to smudges that just need to be cleaned. The hard scratch-resistant coating found on quality window tint products do an excellent job protecting window tint from everyday use as well as kids and pets. A word of caution is to remember window tinting is installed on the inside of the glass and is usually coated with a high quality scratch resistant layer for protection. However, the key word is “resistant”. Take care when loading and unloading objects with sharp or hard edges, boxes, sporting equipment, etc. It is possible to tear even the best window tinting material with a sharp or hard object hitting against the tint. Glass without tinting, or with factory window tint; can be damaged in this fashion also. Remember if you accidentally damage a window, the cost of replacing the window tinting material on one window is not that expensive.
