Seven essential facts about window tinting

Window tinting offers a variety of benefits to help maintain your car and keep you safe while driving, but there are a few things you should know.

Window tinting can add elegance and uniqueness to any car. It protects you from the hot sun and maintains privacy. Tinted cars show less interior cracking and fading of upholstery.

Why tint your windows at all?

Are you wondering why to invest money in tinting windows in a difficult economy? Tinting has many benefits. It protects your car windows; helps keep your car cool and avoid overheating; protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays; and it provides accident protection by holding shattered glass together, thus protecting the inside occupants. Tinting can also reduce harmful rays from the sun and other car headlights, helping you drive safely. In addition, it protects your privacy and contents within a car, and it prevents cracking and fading of car upholstery due to harmful UV rays.

Choosing the right tinting is essential. Below are few tips for choosing a car window tinting that gives both style and elegance to your car.

Familiarize yourself with various options.

The more information you have about various tinting options, the better it is for you. You can visit a window tinting shop to learn more about the options.

Get the best quality.

What quality to choose depends on your budget and usage of car. Top tier tints are long-lasting and appealing, but costly. Average tints are less costly but need replacement after few years.

Think of buying UV-reflecting tints.

Extended exposure of your skin to UV rays can lead to skin cancer. UV window tinting deflects UV rays by almost 99 percent. It also ensures the sun’s rays and energy are not trapped inside the car to make it hot.

Learn state tinting laws.

To find out about car tinting regulations in your state, you can contact a local car tint applier or search online. Most states have specific regulations for tinted windows. A dark tinted window makes it difficult for law enforcement to identify hit and run culprits or criminal suspects during traffic stops. Hence, it is necessary to find about your state’s tinting laws before you set out to make a purchase.

Let the tinting be done by a professional.

It is always better when a professional does the tinting. It will definitely cost more, but it will be worth it.

Know where to tint.

It is important to know where to do tinting. For example, the side mirror and rear mirror should not be tinted. Lighter shades of window tint will be safer on rear and side windows since darker shades can obscure windows, making it difficult to see other vehicles on the road.

Know how to maintain your window tints.

Once the tinting is complete, wait for a few days before cleaning and rolling down windows. After applying tint the installer usually cleans the window. It is advisable to use a soft towel or ammonia-free soap cleaner.

Protect your car from overheating and fading. Surely your car will look stylish with a solid tinting job, just be sure to be well-informed before getting it installed.

To say detailers need to be cautious when dealing with a car’s paint finish is an understatement. It is a constant disappointment to me when I visit detail operations around the country and the world to see how they are correcting, polishing or protecting paint finishes. In many cases it is downright frightening when you consider the cost of a paint finish on a Mercedes, BMW, Porsche or most luxury and exotic vehicles could cost as much as 10% of the vehicle’s value or more.
