Windows tinting is a great way to make your car look more stylish, while also blocking out the harmful UV rays of the sun. It’s an easy and cost-efficient way to improve your vehicle. But before you take the plunge and get your windows tinted, you may have some questions. Let’s go over some of the most frequently asked questions about window tint so that you can make an informed decision.
What Is Window Tint?
Window tint is a thin film that is applied to the interior side of glass car windows for two primary purposes: protection from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays and a more stylish look for your vehicle. The film blocks out up to 99% of UV rays, making it easier and safer for passengers inside the vehicle by reducing glare and providing insulation from heat. Different types of tints are available with varying levels of darkness, UV protection, and insulation materials.
How Do I Know Which Window Tint Is Right For Me?
The type of window tint that’s right for you depends on what you need it for. If style is your top priority, then you may opt for darker tints which provide greater privacy but less visibility at night or in poor weather conditions. For maximum protection from UV rays, choose a window tint with higher VLT (visible light transmission). If heat insulation is important to you, then consider window tints made from ceramic material which has better thermal insulation properties than metallic tints or dyed films.
Can I Install Window Tint Myself?
It’s not recommended that you install window tint yourself unless you are an experienced installer with all the necessary tools and equipment to do it safely and correctly. DIY installation can result in bubbles or creases in the film that can be difficult to remove without damaging it further. Professional installation ensures that your window tint will last longer without any wrinkles or bubbling caused by improper installation techniques used by inexperienced installers.
Window tinting offers many benefits such as improved style and better protection from harmful UV rays. However, before getting your windows tinted, there are factors to consider such as which type of film would best suit your needs and whether professional installation is preferred over DIY installation.
