Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long will it take to install window tint on my vehicle?

A: Installation time ranges from 1 to 4 hours depending on how many windows are being tinted and what type of vehicle

it is.

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

A: We recommend keeping your windows up for at least 4-7 days, depending on the time of year. If windows are rolled down before that time frame the tint often peels off because it has not had enough time to cure. Should this happen we can redo your window at a low cost, but it is not covered under the warranty.

Q: I just had my windows tinted and they look a little hazy. Is this normal?

A: Yes, this is completely normal and temporary. For the first few days after your windows are tinted they might appear cloudy, hazy, and you may see little water pockets forming underneath the film. This is very typical. When windows are tinted, the squeegee can only remove a certain amount of the water from between the film and the glass. As the film dries, the remaining water will form little pockets. Window film is a porous material that allows water to evaporate, so these water pockets will simply evaporate and go away by themselves as the film fully adheres to the glass. The amount of time before your new tint will be totally dry is determined by the amount of sunlight it gets. If it's cloudy and overcast outside, it will take longer, if it's hot and sunny, then the film dries very quickly. This time frame can range from 2 days, up to 1 month

Q: How do black dots and lines at the edge of a window on newer cars affect window tinting?

A: The black dots, or matrix patters, as well as the lines at the top of some windows are made of a Teflon material that is applied at the factory. Purely cosmetic, they hide trim lines and edges on different styles of autos. The thickness of these Teflon-type areas makes them incredibly difficult when applying window tint. Window tint is designed to adhere directly to the glass. The black lines across the top of some windows can prevent window tint from sticking and cannot be covered. When black dots are encountered, the window tint sticks to the slightly raised dot. This can give, depending on the thickness of the material, a lighter or different look in the area of the black matrix dots. This poses no risk of peeling. In some cases, the dot pattern or lines usually put at the top of some windows are so thick that it makes it impossible for the tint to stick at all.

Q: Does the tint go on the outside or inside?  

A: The short answer is on the inside. First, the film is laid on the outside of the car's windows and cut out to fit. Those pieces are then placed on a large piece of glass and trimmed before being installed on the inside of the windows. 

Q: Does the film effect my window demisters ?

A: No the window film will not effect the window demisters it will work as it should, in fact having them on while the film is drying it will help the curing process.

Please be aware that if we have had to remove any window stickers or old film in order to install your new window film then this can damage the heater lines as the adhesive can remove the conductive coating on the heater lines, while we will take every precaution to remove them as best as possible we cannot be held responsible for any damage this may cause. It is always better if you could take the time to remove any stickers or old film before your installation.

Q: How do you make it dust free ?

A:the short answer is that we can`t ! while we work in a controlled environment to minimise the risk of dust or contamination getting on to the film unfortunately there is always dust in the air, on our clothes and in the vehicle so inevitably there will always be some underneath the film although this is kept to a minimum and is hardly noticeable. Think of it as putting a screen protector on your phone but on a much bigger scale !!
