Common Window Tint Mistakes to Avoid

Common Window Tint Mistakes to Avoid

Window tinting for residential and commercial properties and buildings is something to consider. It reduces up to 85 per cent of the sun’s heat and blocks 99 per cent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. By blocking UV rays, window tint also helps protect furnishings, upholstery, paintings, and tapestries from fading and discolouration. It also helps protect skin and eyes from damage while reducing glare.


Functional tinting helps save money by reducing utility bills. For a business, commercial window tinting is great for creating a professional look. It increases the credibility of the company, the aesthetic value of a property and offers complete privacy during the daytime.


Window tinting has a variety of benefits. However, if the installation is not done professionally, it may end up with worse results. To prevent an unwanted outcome, here are some of the typical window tint mistakes that you need to avoid.


1. NOT sourcing quality window tint


There are different kinds of window tints. While some have proven quality, others are rip-offs of better brands. Before choosing a window tint product, it is best to search for the details of the merchandise first. Find the top brands in the industry and make a comparison in terms of quality, price, and customer service. A quality window tint must be able to resist UV rays and infrared from the sun.

2. NOT making precise measurements before application


One of the worst mistakes that an installer makes is to apply the window film without making the right measurements. Before application, it is imperative to measure the film as precisely as possible. The window film installer must have the proper knowledge in handling the film. It is a highly technical task that requires swiftness and precision. The right pressure must be applied to flatten out the film evenly.


3. NOT reviewing the credibility of the window film supplier or installer


Choosing a window film installer based on the price tag is another thing to avoid. It is more important to review the credibility of the company first instead of the price alone. A reliable window film supplier or installer must have a reputable standing in the industry, so homeowners or business owners must conduct a thorough review. There are available reviews or ratings online that are highly informative. Recommendations from friends, family, or co-workers are also helpful in letting the customer make educated decisions.


4. NOT checking for warranty protection


There are professional window tint companies that guarantee the quality of the product and its installation. It is best to check whether the company assures warranty protection. This gives the customers the confidence that the professional installers stand behind the brand that they are recommending. More importantly, it saves the customers money and hassle in case something goes wrong with the product.


If the window tints are not appropriately installed, warranty protection gives the customer the right to have it redone at no cost. The window tint installers are also obligated to install new films if the final output displays streaks or thumb-marks or is not fitted correctly.
