Frequently Asked Questions

AUTOMOTIVE TINT

I just had my windows tinted and they look little hazy or have few small bubbles. Is this normal?

Yes, this is completely normal and temporary. For the first few days after your windows are tinted they might appear cloudy or bubbly, and you may see little water pockets forming underneath the film. The amount of time before your new tint will be totally dry and smooth is determined by the amount of sunlight it gets. This time frame can range from 3 days up to a few weeks in extreme cases.

What should I use to clean my tinted windows?

After the tint is installed on your windows, you should wait at least one week before cleaning them. This is so you don’t risk pulling the tint loose before it has a chance to fully stick to your glass. Clean the windows with a soft microfiber towel and any non-ammonia.

Does the tint go on the outside or inside?

The short answer is on the inside. At times, depending on the curvature of the glass, the film may be laid on the outside of the window to shrink the film with a heat gun. This is done precisely for the film to your window before it is installed as usual on the inside.

How long does it take to tint a vehicle?

Installation time ranges from 1.5 – 3 hours depending on how many windows are being tinted and what type of vehicle it is. We will give you an estimated time when you make your appointment.

Should I drop off my vehicle or wait?

You can do what works best with your schedule. We do have a waiting area for customers who choose to stay for the installation.

How long should I keep my windows rolled after I have window tint installed?

We recommend keeping your windows up for at least 3-4 days. If windows are rolled down before that time frame the tint could peel off because it has not had enough time to cure. Also, take care to not let your seatbelt strike the window during this period.
