Auto Glass Tinting Basics

Last updated 6 years ago

It’s no surprise that window tinting is an extremely popular windshield upgrade. After all, new window tint can make your vehicle more comfortable and attractive. Brush up on the basics of auto tinting and decide if this upgrade is right for your car. 

  • Tinting Installation: Windshield repair professionals use high-quality materials and advanced tools to permanently darken your vehicle’s windows. The process starts with matching a super-thin window tint film to your vehicle. The film is fitted directly to the dimensions of your vehicle with an ultra-precise factory blade. Next, professionals will attach the film with a permanent industrial seal. Finally, special smoothing machines ensure that the window film lies flawlessly on your original windshield.
  • Tinting Benefits: UV protection is one of the most important benefits of tinted windows. The reduction in UV penetration protects your vehicle’s interior from color fading and material warping. A tinted windshield also helps to keep your vehicle’s interior cooler by reflecting sunlight away from the inside of your car. Finally, many car owners greatly appreciate the extra privacy and security that window tints provide.
  • Tinting Restrictions: Ultra-dark tinting shades can obscure visibility and put drivers in danger. That’s why state laws pass strict restrictions on the darkness and type of tinting performed on auto glass. For example, California laws require that windshield and driver mirrors allow in 70% of sunlight. In addition, non-reflective tint can only be installed in the top four inches of the windshield. A certified and experienced windshield repair team will guarantee that your windshield tint is completely legal.
