We ask that you keep the windows rolled up for at least 24 hours while the film cures.
Depending on the temperature, and film type, curing time varies. Automotive films should be fully cured from 7-14 days. Commercial and residential films cure anywhere from 30-90 days depending on exposure and temperature. Most of the moisture will be visible from the inside looking out.
It’s ok to wash your car right after the film is installed, but we ask that you do not clean inside of the windows for the first week. We clean them prior to installation as well.
We recommend using any glass cleaner that has no ammonia, or abrasives. A soft cotton cloth or diaper material is always recommended.
Tinting film is usually a very thin layer of clear polyester film with tinting agents such as dyes &/or metal infused onto the film. Once this tinting film is applied to a window, it alters how outside visible light comes through that window. Normal auto glass without any tint applied will reflect around 5%(known as VLA%), and transmit around 90% of visible light (known as VLT%) into the car. When people refer to tint with a particular percentage, they are most likely referring to the tint’s VLT% (Visible Light Transmittance). VLT% tells you how much visible light is allowed to shine into the vehicle, and also indirectly how dark the tint looks (for example, 50% tint allows more visible light through, while 05% (limo) tint which is darker allows less visible light trough). Tinting film doesn’t just block visible light, it also blocks harmful cancer causing ultra-violet (UV-A and UV-B) rays as well as infrared (IR) rays that cause solar heat to accumulate within your vehicle.
With proper tinting, a vehicle’s interior cabin can be up to 60% cooler during hot summer days. But, the biggest difference you will find is during extremely hot days, when you begin to feel your air conditioning cool down your vehicle alot faster than normal and you will also notice that the air conditioning does not have to work as hard to maintain a cool, comfortable environment. This all equates to better driver and passenger comfort as well as some added fuel savings.
Window tint blocks harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun which have been proven to cause skin cancer. Tinting your car can eliminate up to 99% of these damaging rays.
One of the most common causes of physical harm during any vehicle accident is from the explosive glass shattering around you upon impact. Window tint bonds to the glass and may possibly hold the glass together during an accident, shielding the occupants in the vehicle.
Window tint absorbs light from the outside, thus reducing any blinding glare from the sun, snow, water, reflections, as well as from the headlights of other vehicles. This increases driver awareness and reduces driver fatigue, helping you drive more safely.
Common thieves target your vehicle by the contents left in plain sight. Window tint can help hide any of your valuables you may have forgotten in your vehicle.
Excessive solar heat and harmful ultraviolet(uv)rays will cause upholstery to crack and fade over time. Window tint acts as a sunscreen and prolongs the life of your upholstery.
This is entirely up to your personal preference. But will be happy to accommodate whatever shade you choose to have.
Yes. As long as you don’t have any pre-existing night vision problems. Unlike sunglasses that will impair your ability to drive at night, tinting film is designed to reduce glare and not impede night-time driving. Depending on your choice of tint shade you may notice a slight reduction in visibility when there is absolutely no light. But when there is light the tint and the light will be reduced. During daytime driving, you will definitely be able to see outside and you may not need your sunglasses anymore while driving.
Window tint always goes on the inside of the window.
No! Our experienced installation staff will thoroughly clean the interior of every pane of glass that we are tinting.This must be done in order to provide you with the best installation possible.
Yes, but for most part,it’s going to still be hot due to the lack of ventilation that traps the heat within the closed vehicle. The big difference occurs when you attempt to cool down your car with air conditioning. It will cool down much faster and be able to stay cooler inside your vehicle much easier. Also, you will begin to notice that the sunlight that hits your skin is much more bearable than before without any tint.
It normally varies on the type of vehicle and the number of windows you want tinted, but we like to allow 2-3 hours for a complete installation.
Yes, this will occur temporarily after your tint is installed. A thin layer of water will be trapped under the film until it evaporates. We recommend to not poke at water bubbles. Water bubbles are normal for up to two weeks after installation. It could take less time during hot weather.
No! When you have your tint installed by us, your tint is GUARANTEED not to bubble, crack or peel.
This is because poor quality tint was used on the vehicle. Poor quality tint will degrade in color and fade (or turn purple) after prolonged exposure to sunlight. Our Tint which comes with a lifetime warranty, in highest grades of tint, is guaranteed not to fade over the lifetime of your vehicle.
You can clean your windows with any cleaner that does not contain ammonia. Stay away from using any abrasive materials or cheap paper towels to wipe your tint. A soft cloth or squeegee seems to work best.
We recommend that you leave your windows up for at least 3-5 days after tint has been installed. This is because the bond between the window film and the window itself has not yet dried completely. Parking your car in the direct sunlight is a good way to help speed up this drying process.
No, it will not. We tint right over top of it. The defrosters can be used right away without affecting the tint.
Yes, window tinting can be removed at any time after installation. However, the best thing to do is to scrape it off entirely. It is a messy job. Please call us if you require removal. We would be more than happy to assist you.
Dot matrix are small black dots that the factory put. These dots are located around the edge of some windows and along the back glass as a visual cosmetic border. The dots are basically bumps on the glass that cause the film to stick in the dots instead of the window. This will not cause the film to peel but it will seem silver in appearance.
This is normal and will not disappear. Once the film dries it’s sometimes possible to press them down to some degree.
