Window tint for your vehicle is something not many people give a second thought to. While you may know that you want it done, how much research have you done to ensure that you will be happy with the overall result? Unfortunately, most people only notice a window tint job when one is done improperly or the window tint has gone bad. Fortunately, these are easy pitfalls to avoid, so we wanted to give you three things to consider before you get your vehicle tinted.

Do you only want the look or do you want performance too? – Just like most other items you can purchase for your vehicle, there are numerous levels of window tint quality and performance. You first need to determine if you only want the look of tinted windows or if you actually would like some noticeable heat and UV rejection as well. While an inexpensive film might make your windows look the way you want, it may barely reject any heat at all. The good news is that with the latest generations of window tint you can have great looks and tremendous performance. Spend some time discussing your options with our team at Colorado Glass Tinting so that you can make the right choice to give you the combination of desired look and heat and UV rejecting performance.

How experienced is the installer? – Many of the modifications done to a vehicle can be done by individuals with a variety of skill levels without drastically effecting the end result. However, window tint is quite different. An experienced installer can make all the difference between you have a great looking tint job that you can be proud of or an eyesore not worthy of your vehicle. A good installer can make an even average window tint look great based on the quality of their installation. Likewise, an inexperienced installer can take the best window film available and get a substandard result based on flaws in the installation. To have a tint job that will last and that you can be proud of, make sure to verify a company’s experience level and ask to see some examples of their work.

Who is standing behind the product and installation? – We would all love to live in a world where things did not go wrong. Unfortunately, things can and do sometimes turn out different than we would like. Just like any other product you might purchase, there can be situations where a window tint will fail and need to be replaced. It is when this happens that the company standing behind the film that was installed and the shop that did the installation become very important. At Tint King, we use only top quality film from Llumar and we have been servicing the greater Indianapolis, Indiana area for over 25 years.

Any quality window tint job should come with a warranty card from the manufacturer that spells out the terms of the warranty and the process to get something corrected if there is ever an issue. If a shop does not tell you what brand of window tint is being installed or provide you with a warranty card, that should be a red flag to look elsewhere for your installation.

I hope that these three basic questions to consider help you to make a more informed decision the next time you get your vehicle tinted.
