You need to know the best time of the year to tint your car windows in Las Vegas. UV protection is a necessity with the Nevada sun. It not only protects you and your passengers but also prevents your car interiors from getting bleached. This reduces the amount of damage to car seats and armrests, which adds years of life to your car.
Many drivers need to know that normal car windows and exteriors don’t protect them from UV rays. Auto glass is transparent and refracts the light that enters or exits the car. They won’t prevent the 229 days of Nevada sun from burning your skin or reduce the glare. You need to add an extra layer of window tinting to filter out the UV rays appropriately.
After you get a tinting job, it is best to keep the windows up for a week afterward and do not clean them during this interim. Thus, you want to avoid tinting them with rain, snow, or sleet, if it is possible. Heat or humidity can cause the curing time, or the time it takes for the window film to adhere, to expand significantly.
Las Vegas is in the desert, with no snow during the winter. It gets a few cool days in the winter, which will drop to 50 degrees Fahrenheit at the coldest. Peak temperatures can include 103 degrees Fahrenheit. There is a short “monsoon season” in the summer with less than five inches of rainwater on average.
We recommend getting your tinting done during the fall and winter in Las Vegas. Because the region doesn’t receive snow and is less likely to receive rain during these months, the humidity is extremely low at this time. So are the temperatures. You’ll have to wait for a smaller amount of time for the tinting to affix itself to the windows easily.
Car window tinting is best to do in the spring or in the fall if you live in other regions when there are temperate seasons. You want to ensure that the heat and humidity are low. That way the tint can adhere properly and not risk any bubbles or other issues.
With that said, you should get your windows tinted as soon as you can. You simply need to wait longer than a week in the summer, and a specialized shop will have appropriate temperature conditions during the tinting process. Sun protection is no joke for your skin or your vehicle. You can increase your car’s lifespan and create an investment in the long run.
