Things to Keep In Mind Before Getting Your Car Windows Tinted

If you’ve recently purchased a new car, the next step you should take is getting your windows tinted. However, getting a car window tint is not as simple as you might think. There are a lot of things you have to consider when choosing the right one for your car. Here are some things that you need to take into account:

Know Your Tinting Levels
Having the right tinting levels is important for your safety, particularly if you spend a lot of time in your car each day. There is also a legal maximum tint level that you have to consider as well, depending on the city you live in. Typically, maximum levels for the side windows range between 25% to 35% while the rear windows only get up to 5% of tint.

Different Types of Tint
There are three styles of tinting that you can choose from based on your budget and how long you want it to last, including dyed, hybrid, and metalized. The least expensive type of tinting is dyed tint. However, the quality may not be as great as the color will eventually turn to purple and the film will bubble. For the highest quality, a metalized tint is your best bet as it has the best heat protection. It also often comes with a lifetime warranty. As for the most popular type, a hybrid tint is your perfect option as it is the combination of the two styles.

Film Maintenance
Another aspect that you need to consider is the maintenance of your window tint. Window film should be well-cared for if you expect it to last long. You will need to clean your windows with the right cleaning materials. Avoid using ammonia as it can remove your tint and render your investment useless. You can clean your tinted windows with ammonia-free cleaner or just soap and water. Here are some maintenance tips for you to keep in mind after you installed your residential window film:

// Cleaning
It is critical that you wait at least one week after installing your window film before you clean your windows. As mentioned, you can do your own cleaning by using a soft cloth soaked with either an ammonia-free window cleaner or foam cleanser. To avoid scratching or damaging your window film, make sure that you don’t use any sharp tools or harsh chemicals.

// Cured Window
Curing is the process where your film is settling in. You need to avoid any contact before it dries completely. The moisture can build up between the film and the window, which can make your window film to appear cloudy. This is normal and you should not attempt to clean it. Give your windows some time to dry and cure completely before you do any cleaning.

// Damaged Film
Keep in mind that damaged film cannot be repaired, and you have to remove your entire film and get it replaced again. There are usually warranties on window film for when this kind of situation happens. Although the cost of replacement is covered, it is only for a period of time. This is why you should do whatever you can to prevent your window film from being damaged in the first place.

We had a large window downstairs in our kitchen that got full sun. It really got the full heat of the day. Since tinting it, it has made a huge difference to our temperature in the house. We also had an upstairs window to do. The tint is installed on the inside, the job was done super quickly and the technician was excellent. very helpful.
