Some Do-It-Yourself Installations Gone Bad!

The Quality of the Window Tinting Film Matters

There is a common saying when making most purchases, “You get what you pay for.” This absolutely applies to window film, especially auto tint. The quality of tint can range from very low quality to very high quality. Most do it yourself kits are very inexpensive, which makes the project of attempt to tint your vehicle yourself very appealing, but the quality of that film is usually very low. You do not want your tint to peel or fade and turn purple just because it is a bit cheaper than having a professional tint your vehicle. Professional tint shops use high quality materials and are not going to install and put their reputation on the line for cheap low quality films that will fade and turn an ugly purple color.

Professionals Guarantee Their Work

Professionals often warranty their work. When you do the job yourself, there’s no one to back the work should it bubble, peel or change color over time. Professional grade tint products are usually backed by warranty’s that ensuring their longevity. Companies that produce the tint are not afraid to guarantee their products when they know an experienced professional installed them. If they trust them, you should too!

Professional Window Tinting Saves You Money In the Long Run

This adds up because DIY kits do not send extra or scrap pieces of film to account for mistakes that are easily made with installation. Improper installation can also cost you in the long run. If you install tint yourself and a year down the road it needs to be removed, because of bubbling or turning purple, it can cost you twice as much. The cost of removing old tint can become very expensive and you risk causing extra and unnecessary damage to the glass and your rear defroster lines. After all that, assuming you want your vehicle tinted again, you have to pay a professional to do all that work when it could have been done right the first time.
