If you’re considering automobile window tint, we’ve got years of expertise to help you make the right decision. The top questions regarding window tint tend to fall into the “Why?” and “Where?” categories. So, let’s look at some of the benefits of an automotive film (the why questions), as well as what you should look for when you decide where to have it installed (the where question).


The Why Questions


MORE STYLE


Everybody likes a good looking car, and a vehicle window tinting is an easy way to personalize and add a custom look to your ride. You might have a darker, sleek style tint in mind, or you might want a lighter tint that barely tints the glass but blocks heat. Whether you like a lighter or darker film, you’ll end up with a car that looks and feels more stylish and personalized.


REDUCE VEHICLE INTERNAL TEMPERATURE


You know that feeling you get when you’re driving with the sun at your side, and you end up in an overheating car even when you crank up the AC? The sun’s rays come into your ride and heat it up like a greenhouse, whether your AC is on or not. A window film can reduce the heat streaming through your windows and keep the air cooler and allow your air conditioning to perform better. With newer ceramic technologies, even a light tint can block out and reduce your interior temperature!


DITCH THE GLARE


If you live in a sunny area or drive during a particularly sunny time of day, you’ve probably experienced that dangerous, annoying glare that makes it hard to see the road. A good window film can cut this glare down dramatically, giving you a better line of sight, making you more comfortable and helping you focus on driving safely.


PROTECTION FROM UV RAYS


Anytime we’re exposed to the sun, we are absorbing dangerous UV rays that negatively impact our skin. The same sun you protect yourself from at the beach is still affecting you while you’re driving; UVA rays can penetrate car windows, increasing your risk of cancer and causing premature skin aging. See what The Skin Cancer Foundation has to say about window film’s skin protection capabilities by clicking HERE.


Prolonged exposure to UVA rays can also fade dark colored interiors and fabrics. A modern, UV filtering window film helps protects you and your vehicle interior from these dangerous rays.


The Where Question


If you’ve decided that you want automobile window tint to get these great benefits, your next step is to decide where you’re going to have it installed. Because every state has different laws around window tints, you should first check what the laws in your particular state with this handy chart from AAA located HERE.


Now that you understand the law, here’s what you should be looking for when choosing a window film installation company.


A CLEAN SHOP AREA


A clean workspace is crucial for a good window tint, because if an auto shop is dusty or messy, tiny particles of grease and dirt in the air will end up sticking to your glass during the tint process. This will give you a less than optimal finished product.


MANUFACTURER WARRANTIES


Make sure to ask what the manufacturer and installation company guarantees are regarding the window film being installed on your vehicle. Make sure you understand if you will be on the hook for any costs if something goes wrong with the film.


EXAMPLES OF SHOPS WORK


Nothing speaks to quality of the product and installation like seeing an example of their previous tint jobs. Ask for reference photos or in-person vehicles they’re working on. Take a good look for any bubbles, trapped dirt, lifting edges, etc. A good price is quickly forgotten if you are unhappy with the quality of the installation.

IF YOU NEED TO REDUCE GLARE AND HARSH LIGHT, WINDOW FILM CAN HELP!


Most people think of window film or window tinting primarily as something that helps in the Summer. However, Winter is often the time when glare and harsh light become big issues. Is there a way to reduce glare, harsh light and improve home comfort while maintaining your views? The answer is yes, but first let’s look at why this problem may be worse in the Winter.


There are three reasons this is the case:


- The sun is lower in the sky during these months which means that it is shining more directly into your windows versus from a more overhead position in the Summer months.


- There are no leaves on the trees to block the sun. Many homes and commercial properties have foliage in the Summer that serves to offer some shade. In the Winter, with this gone, they have to deal with glare issue that are not present at other times of the year.


- The refection of the sun off of the snow. When there is a layer of snow on the ground, it acts like a big mirror to reflect the sun’s rays. This can make any harsh light issue even worse at this time of the year as it is actually amplifying the light coming through the glass.


SO, WHAT CAN WINDOW FILM DO?


The window film we offer is likely not like the picture in your head of a darkly tinted car. Technology has enabled current window films to block a great deal of glare as well as heat without restricting your view. In fact, like a high quality pair of sunglasses, the innovative technology found in window film today actually serves to enhance your views. The harsh light and glare is eliminated allowing your eyes to relax and your home or commercial space to become a more comfortable place to be.

There is no doubt that Summer now is a distant memory. The kids are fully engaged back in school and cooler temperatures have begun to arrive. As many people prepare to spend more time indoors, they often consider doing some projects around the house. Fall is a great time to take on a home improvement project.


We recently read an article in the Huffington Post by Sam Cohen titled "Build Superior Homes By Installing Window Films — Valid Reasons To Add Them To Your Windows". We thought it would be great to summarize some of the reasons he lists, along with some of our own, so you might consider window film as a great choice for a Fall home improvement project.


Why Should Window Film Be Your Next Home Improvement Project?


Creates a Comfortable Environment: After window films are installed in your home, they create a comfortable environment by reducing the hot and cold areas of your home often associated with proximity to windows.


Saves Energy: Window film not can improve the appearance of your home, it can also plays a huge role in saving on energy costs. Depending on what type of film you choose, you can save significantly on your energy costs.


Protects Interior Furnishings from UV Damage: Window films can block 99% of the ultraviolet rays of the sun that enters your home. This is important because UV is a major contributor to fading. So, as the window film blocks the UV rays, it also protects upholstery, furnishings, tapestries, paintings from discoloration and fading.


Enhances Security and Safety: Window films also help hold the glass together in the event of breaking of a window. Whether due to an attempted break-in, storm or an accident, the window film can act as a barrier to entry and protection from injury from glass shards.


Reduces Glare: At this time of the year, the sun is lower in the sky and this often creates irritating glare issues that aren't as prevalent in the Summer. Window film can help cut the glare making rooms more comfortable and allow you to see things like television and computer screens more easily.


Improves Your Existing Windows: Rather than deal with the disruption of replacing your windows, window film retrofits to your existing glass and improves the performance. Professional installation can be done quickly with minimal disruption to the daily activities in your home.
