What are the benefits of Tinting Your Windows?

Tinting your windows can provide additional privacy by reducing the amount of light that enters your vehicle all while reducing glare and making it easier to see out. It offers excellent thermal rejection by blocking up to 85% of the heat normally produced through the windows, as well as blocking 99% of the harmful UV rays that can lead to skin cancer. From a safety standpoint, in the event of a collision or glass breakage, the film will hold the glass together to reduce your chances of injury.

Whats the Difference Between Dyed Films and Nano Films?

Dyed films offer a really nice charcoal look to your vehicle, more privacy, and a little heat rejection up to 30%

Nano Ceramic Films offer that same look of a charcoal dyed film and privacy while giving you the added benefit of increased clarity, and heat rejection up to 85%.

How Do I Care For My New Window Tint?

We will ask you not to roll your windows down for 3 days. Because the film was just applied you need a couple days for the film to set up so the in window gaskets don?t peel the fresh film off.

You will notice small bubbles, cloudiness, haziness, and distortion for up to 30 days. Commonly, they don?t last longer than 2 weeks. The film is applied with a mild soap and water solution and the windows need time for the moisture to evaporate out through the film. It will go away once the film has fully cured.

How long does the installation take?

We ask that we have your vehicle for 2 hours. Every vehicle is different and typically takes less time than that.
