5 Questions You Should Ask Before Tinting Your Car

5 Questions You Should Ask Before Tinting Your Car

Car tints look great, and if you are considering this step, there are a few questions you should ask beforehand, including the following:

Why do you want to Tint Your Vehicle?

  • Block UV rays. Ultraviolet light will damage and fade your interior finishes. For some, skin cancer is a serious consideration that window tint helps prevent.
  • Cut down the strain of bright sunshine and headlights.
  • Reduce heat by reflecting and blocking sunlight.
  • Privacy 
  • Looks great.

1. How much will this cost? 

Pricing will always be a deciding factor, so this should be a consideration. While tinting your windows will not require you to empty your bank account, you should still consider your budget to ensure you can handle this cost. You will come across lower-end tints with low price points but remember that these may look cheap and under perform in the areas that matter. Just remember a quality product and quality installation gives you a long-term benefit. Paying a little more will provide professional results, so determine the cost and how much you are willing to pay. 

2. Is the tint high-quality? 

Quality matters, so you need to ask about this aspect. Quality will show, so consider this step an investment. People will be able to tell between a cheap tint and a quality one, and you don't want your car to be known as the one with the tacky additions. The right tint will last years as opposed to just a few months and spending a little extra will ensure you are not disappointed.

3. Do tints come with a warranty?  

Ensure your tint comes with a warranty because protection will provide peace of mind. A tint warranty should cover all time and material necessary to fix a problem. A company that has been around for some years and has a solid track record should be high on your list of where to have your car tinted.

4. Is technology included in the tint? 

Technology has come a long way. Any tint to be used on your vehicle must have a UV protection and a scratch resistant inner finish. Tints using carbon to block the light are the standard. If heat is a primary concern upgrade to a ceramic film. Note however there are hybrid ceramics and pure ceramic tints. A pure ceramic will be about 2.5 times the price of a carbon tint All tints will offer the additional benefit of protection from glass shattering. There are security window films that require multiple hits with a sledgehammer to break through if that is a priority for you.

5. Are there different tint brands? 

Yes, there are different brands of tints, so you need to determine which is best. Top brands will provide you with quality and performance, so read reviews and do your research before buying tint. You need to find a brand you feel comfortable with so that you are satisfied with your purchase.
