Getting your windows tinted offers both aesthetic and health benefits. If installed properly, your ride or residential/commercial window tints will not only stand out, but they’ll last longer, too. Before going into the process of getting your windows tinted, you should consider asking the following questions to assure your satisfaction with the results.
There are several types of window tints that can differ depending on which ones your window tint installer has available. For example, for automotive tinting, Team Acme offers Carbon Series (SunTek Carbon) and Carbon Nano Hybrid (SunTek CXP) options—each of which offer superior quality for a high-end finish.
For all types of window tinting, you should make sure that your windows are thoroughly cleaned before getting them tinted. Having a clean car or residential window will allow you to get a cleaner installation. The vehicle tint installer will also clean the glass and its surroundings before installing your tints.
You should ask yourself which windows you’d like to get tinted. Do you want the back window and windshield tinted, too? Or do you just want the rear windows tinted? Once you know which ones you’re going to tint, you can determine how much the process will cost you.
Every state sets its own regulations for tinting; meaning the various pieces of glass on your car can each be at a specific degree of darkness. In Nevada, for example, the front doors must allow 35% of sunlight into the vehicle, while the windows behind the driver’s seat are not regulated.
Another important question to ask is how durable window tints are. The scratch resistant coating that comes on high-quality window tint films today makes it easier to protect the tints from damage that can be caused from child’s play, pets, and weather conditions. You should also ask if your tints have a warranty.
Depending on how many windows you’re tinting, vehicle window tints generally just take a few hours to install; specifically one to three hours. This is also dependent on the type of vehicle you’re tinting, too. If you can’t wait that long, ask if you have the option to drop off the vehicle and come back later or the next day.
This may sound like a question you would ask after getting your windows tinted, but some people get so excited to see their fresh new tints, they forget to wait before rolling down the windows. Most of the time, it can just be a reflex to roll down the windows and test how well the tints were installed.
Rolling down windows too early can cause damage such as peeling before the curing process is complete. You should keep your windows up for 2-4 days after they’re installed.
