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.

That is why observing May as Skin Cancer Awareness Month is so important. According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, the incidence of this disease reaching epidemic levels. Fortunately, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer. About 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers and 85 percent of melanoma cases are associated with exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. By raising awareness of the dangers of unprotected exposure and encouraging sun-safe habits, we can change behaviors and save lives.


You may wonder why we are sharing this information with you. What does window film have to do with skin cancer prevention? Actually, professionally installed window films are a given the Seal of Recommendation by The Skin Cancer Foundation as a safe and effective sun protection. They warn that ultraviolet radiation can travel through car and home windows, where it can contribute to the daily accumulation of sun exposure that can lead to skin cancer and photoaging. UV-blocking films can not only protect you against this exposure, but can offer other benefits as well. Harmful ultraviolet rays (UVR) are sneaky. Not only can they cause skin cancer and visible signs of aging, they’re also very good at finding you. They can bounce off water, off sand, and they can penetrate glass. Which means that even if you’re inside your car or house, if you’re sitting next to a window with sunlight streaming in, you’re at risk for UV damage. Window film is an increasingly effective solution, offering substantial indoor protection by blocking up to 99.9 percent of UVA radiation.

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.

As a way to honor May as being Skin Cancer Awareness Month, we wanted to share this important information with you. Did you know drivers in the U.S. have a higher rate of skin cancer on their left side due to exposure while driving? Here’s a scientific fact that most people find hard to believe: While it’s rare to get sunburned through your car windows, harmful ultraviolet (UVA) rays that contribute to premature aging and skin cancer can still reach you. UV Window Film for your vehicle can help.


Damage from UVA rays is cumulative as they penetrate deep into the skin and can silently accelerate the aging process, cause wrinkles and even skin cancer. In fact, research shows that drivers in the U.S. have a higher rate of skin cancer on their left side due to exposure while driving. Why put up with this risk when you don’t have to any longer? The LLumar window tint we use at Tint King blocks more than 99% of harmful UV rays* (*wavelengths 300-380nm). It’s why The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends window tint as part of a comprehensive skin care program.
