If you’ve been thinking about getting your windows tinted, it’s likely that you have researched online for reviews and Q&As about window tinting. If that’s the case, you may have read some myths that left you confused. Before you invest in window tint, let us help you by breaking down these misconceptions…

Myth #1 – Window Tinting Will Change Color and Bubble Over Time

While this may be true of cheap, unprofessionally installed tinting, this is not the case for professionally installed tint. Do-it-yourself tint may turn purple, bubble, and lose effectiveness over times as they were not made to last forever. However, professionally installed tint should last up to the lifetime of the vehicle! Our experience combined with the high quality films we use, will give you a tint that will last for many years.

Myth #2 – Window Tint Will Make The Interior Of My Car Very Dark

Tint comes in several shades and even the darkest still allows some light to come into your car. You’ll find that tint is rated using percentages. The higher the percentage, the more light that will shine through. Tint can be almost as clear as glass, serving as UV and heat barrier, or you can opt for something darker. Review your state’s laws and consult a professional installer before you settle on a preferred shade of tint.

Myth #3 – Window Tint Is For Looks Only and Serves No Other Purpose 

While window tint does serve a cosmetic purpose and many people choose to tint their windows to improve the look of their  vehicles, that is not its sole purpose. One of the biggest perks of getting your windows tinted is that tint blocks out heat and damaging UV rays. This will protect the interior of your car as well as your skin. Not to mention, window tint blocks the glare from the sun which makes driving safer. It also helps to keep your car cool on hot days.

Myth #4 – Tinting Your Windows Will Keep Them From Breaking

You’ve learned that window tint can protect yourself and your vehicle from UV rays. It also limits the ability of people outside the vehicle to see in, which prevents theft. Window tinting will not keep your windows from breaking. While it cannot make your glass indestructible, it can reduce the amount of glass that breaks into fragments if the window film remains intact.

Myth #5 – Getting Your Windows Tinted is Expensive

Not all window tint is expensive. There are several variables that go into the cost of having your windows tinted… 1) The cost of the film itself, 2) who you hire to do the job, 3) the amount of windows you are having tinted and 4) the darkness of the shade you prefer. With these in mind, you are still likely find that it is not as expensive as you anticipated.
