What to know about Auto Tinting


Sunlight and glare in our eyes can really impair our driving while on the road or highway. That’s why many people opt to install window tinting on all of their car’s windows. For some, tint brings about a certain elegance to our vehicles and makes them private. Window tinting has been around for years and many don’t go without it. If you live in a sunny area, window tint is probably a highly needed accessory to your car. Tint is known to block nearly 99 percent of the sun’s rays which can impact not only us but our passengers. If you are thinking about adding tint to your car, consider these tips.


Familiarize yourself with window tinting and how it works, then do as much research as you can.

No one wants to walk away thinking they got a great deal, only to look at it two days later and everything is bubbling. The more you know about the procedure, the better. It’s also smart to simply make a trip to a window tinting business and ask a list of questions. There are many different types of tints that you may not realize are available.

High or Low-end

If you are looking to spend some money, then you probably want to go with a high-end level tint job. It also depends on how you use your car. If you are in an industry where privacy is a huge concern, then a cheap tint job is not the way to go. You can still get a lower end tint job and has your car looking nice. It really comes down to how much you want to spend.


We all know someone who has tried to do this task on their own. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t work out for everyone and you will have to give in and call a professional. A bad tint job is not pretty on any car. Most tint experts know and understand how to tint a car and bring out it’s true beauty. It may make sense to spend a little extra, so a professional can work some magic with their tinting talents.


It is extremely important that you know where you want your tint to be. There are areas on your car where tint simply should not be. That said, do not tint a side mirror or a rear mirror. You also should always put a lighter tint shade on the side and rear windows. If you go too dark with your tint, you will make if very difficult to see. For some states, dark tint is against the law, so understand the tint laws and what is allowed before spending your money. If you ignore this, you run the risk of getting multiple tickets until you simple have to redo all of your windows.
