Rather than turning to your 15-year-old neighbor to install tints on your car windows, you decide to take your car to the shop. At this point, you are ultimately expecting a professional job to be done—one that’ll be worth the price tag. But how do you know that the auto connoisseurs working on your vehicle really are experts?
Prior to leaving the shop with your freshly tinted car, there are a few things you should pay attention to:
Aside from just looking at whether the window tints were applied on all the windows you asked for them to be installed on, you should make sure that the film was accurately cut to cover the entire window glass, from edge to edge. Sometimes, if an auto tint installer gets distracted and/or takes an inaccurate measurement of a window glass’s dimensions, the film installed might not cover the entire glass.
Additionally, you should check whether the window film was applied in one piece on the rear window or if it was cut into several pieces. Great tint shops only apply a single piece and the ends of the tints should be properly attached without any loose film hanging out.
Some shops use blades to cut the film during the application process, which will usually end up leaving scratches on your window glass. Make sure to ask about the shop’s modes of window film installation and look closely at the glass before leaving to see if you spot any damage, in case a sharp tool was used.
Scratch marks can appear on more than just the glass. Make sure to check for scratches on the material of the window gaskets that surround the inside of your vehicle’s doors. You should even look out for scrapes on your vehicle’s exterior paintjob around the windows.
Usually, when you first get your car back after the tints are installed, you’ll spot some minor streaks and what may look like slight discoloration. This is normal, as it’ll take several days before the windows dry and the tints will be totally clear.
However, you should not see any bubbles between the film and the window glass since that’s a sign of a poor tinting job. To prevent causing the formation of bubbles on a clean tinting job, it’s recommended to refrain from rolling down your windows for at least two days after getting your vehicle back.
There are a lot of things you can to do to evade getting a messy window tint job done. Firstly, you should visit a shop and view samples of its work before getting your vehicle tinted. Check how many years it’s been in business and inquire about its window tint selection.
