Automotive Window Tinting FAQ

We’ve had it!! The rumor mill is out of control and we’re ready to answer the questions that we hear from our clients most often … so, here you go — Automotive Window Tinting FAQ from The Master at Tintmaster!

Although the automotive industry has seen several trends come and go over the years, window tinting has consistently remained a sought-after service among people across the globe for many years and continues to do so to this day. However, despite the widespread popularity of automotive-based window tinting, many questions still surround the installation process thus spawning several misconceptions among potential consumers.

To remedy this, we have comprised a list of some of the most frequently asked questions and concerns regarding automotive window tinting, in an attempt to answer some of these questions and set the record straight!

Setting The Record Straight: Automotive Window Tinting FAQ

Q: What is Window Film?

A: Comprised of polyethylene terephthalate, window film is a thin polyester film material that is applied to interior surface of the glass window in your car. The reasons for doing so can vary from aesthetic purposes, to increased privacy, to reducing the amount of heat and UV rays allowed to enter your windows. Window film can come in a variety of tints, shades, and colors, to be altered to suit the intended needs and desires of the consumer.

Q: How long does the installation process take?

A: The installation process typically requires two or three hours to complete in its entirety; however, this can vary depending on the type of vehicle in question, as well as the number of windows being tinted.

Q: Is the tinting film installed on the inside or the outside?

A: Although the film is initially hand-cut and trimmed on the outer side of the windows, the film is then installed INSIDE the car’s windows, thereby achieving the desired effect.

Q: Can I wash my car after having my windows tinted?

A: Yes, A car CAN be washed after having its windows tinted, so long as only the outside of window is cleaned and not the inside. Once the installation process is finished, we highly recommend that you wait at least one week prior to washing the inside of your windows, and that you use a foam based, ammonia-free cleaning product to do so. Additionally, it would probably be best to use a cloth hand towel to clean the newly tinted glass as harder materials may scratch or damage the film.

Q: Can I roll down my windows after having them tinted?

A: No! Not right away! Once the tinting film has been applied to the glass, you should wait a minimum of at least three to five days in order to allow the film’s adhesive to fully take to the glass.

Q: Why does window tint sometimes bubble or fade?

A: Unfortunately, this is the result of the film’s adhesive failing and while there a couple of factors that may cause this, it usually boils down to three things:

  1. Not giving the film enough time to settle before rolling the windows down
  2. Washing them too soon
  3. Using inadequate tinting materials.

The latter case is typically the result of DIY window tinting kits that are sometimes sold at automotive retail stores. Although DYI tinting kits are relatively inexpensive, the cumbersome tinting film that they use cannot deliver the same type of quality that a professional grade tinting can.

Q: How dark are windows legally allowed to be?

A: This is a question that may vary depending on what state you live in, as different states have deferent regulations regarding the percentage of tint that can be applied to specific windows. California State Law for instance, permits that while any percentage of tint can be used for the back-side windows and rear windows of a car, the driver and passenger windows cannot be any darker than 70%, and only non-reflective tint can be applied to the windshield.

Commercial Building Window Tint: A Wise Choice

Now that you’ve decided to get commercial building window tint for your business, there are 5 things we’d like you to consider.

As the owner of an office building, there are a number of things to take into consideration, and certainly many difficult decisions that you will have to make. However, the decision to invest in commercial building window tint has not been a hard choice for many business owners in the past, as the practical and aesthetic advantages that tinted windows offer are staggering to say the least!

Commercial Building Window Tint: 5 Things to Consider

If you have made the decision to have the windows of your office tinted, obviously we believe you have made a very good decision that will prove its worth for many years to come. That being said, there are several things to consider prior to the application process. Although tinting film is commonly thought to all be the same, in fact there are a number of differences in the various types of tinting, all of which can have a significant impact on the final product and how it functions.

Style & Contrast:

First and foremost, you need to explicitly decide what purpose that you want the tint to serve. Obviously having blinding rays of sunlight blasting through your office windows day after day can certainly cause major distractions and swelling temperatures. In this scenario, you would certainly want a type of tinting film designed to reduce glare and reject heat. On the other hand, perhaps you have a privacy concern and require tint that prevents those on the outside from seeing into your building, thus requiring a mirror styled tint for less-translucent effect.

Coloration:

Commercial building window tint can come in a variety of different shades and colors, that can be used to give your establishment a desirable appearance. This can be an effective tool for marketing as a unique or distinct look can play a major role in helping your business stand out.

Durability:

With multiple brands and types of tinting film, the thickness of the material will vary from one to the next. Additionally, thicker material may be more effective in blocking out heat, as well as retaining heat during the cooler months.

Cost:

The cost may vary depending on a number of factors including the type of film used as well as the number of major light sources your office has. If you are on a limited budget, then this is certainly something that you should take into consideration!

Installation Process:

In addition to cost, the installation process can also play a major role in making one’s decision, and while the process isn’t particularly long or painstaking, it does take a certain amount of time for the application to fully complete. However, keep in mind that this is an investment, and like any investment it requires time to reach its fruition.

Sacramento Residential Window Tinting: Add Another Layer of Protection to Your Home

Your Home, Your Sanctuary

As many people would probably agree, your home is much more than just a house, your home is your own personal sanctuary! If this sounds unfamiliar, then a quick search via a search engine will inform you that a sanctuary is “a place of refuge, rest, or safety” which is something every home ideally should be. Providing you with a place of comfort and safety is the hallmark of any great home, and while your home will never ask for anything in return, there is something fantastic that you can do for your home that will better protect it, while allowing it to continue to provide sanctuary for both you and your family!

Residential Tinting: A Veil of Protection

Although basic window tinting is certainly not the newest service on the market today, modern residential window tinting has developed far beyond its initial conception and has now become a highly sought-after commodity amongst homeowners nationwide. To some people, the probable explanation for this rise in popularity would be the tinting film’s ability to shield the occupant’s eyes from the bright rays of sunlight that can be a bit of a nuisance on sunny days. While this is certainly true, as a growing number of homeowners are beginning to realize, are the benefits offered by window tinting and the protection it can offer your home in a number of different ways.

Home Security

As mentioned earlier, as a homeowner the safety and security of you, your loved ones, and your property are always your top priorities. Therefore, by obscuring the interior of you home from the outside, you are taking a proactive step in preventing your home from attracting the attention of any potential prowlers.  Additionally, tinted windows will not only allow you to keep your personal property hidden from public view but will also allow you to protect the privacy and sanctity of your family’s home from the unwelcome presence of gawkers or looky-loos.

Furniture/Interior Protection

Obviously furnishing a home isn’t exactly a cheap endeavor, and with that being the case when you purchase new furniture, it’s certainly your hope that it will last a long time. Unfortunately, this is not always the case as many folks have discovered bright UV rays streaming through panes of glass can be very hard on furniture, carpet, and cabinet, especially over an extended period of time. This often leads to these household amenities fading and discoloring, thus forcing the homeowner to replace them long before they normally would need to. However, by applying window tint to the major light sources in your home, you can avoid this issue and prolong your furniture’s lifespan, ultimately saving yourself a considerable amount of money.

Save Energy

While this may come as bit of a surprise at first, another (less obvious) way in which residential tinting can save you money is the fact that it is certain to make your home much more energy efficient. Although seldom acknowledged, tinting film has the unique ability to minimize heating and cooling loss. This allows your home to conserve heat during the wintertime, while simultaneously repelling heat during the summer! This valuable benefit offered by tinted windows is almost certain to not only cut down on energy costs, but also to make your home much more comfortable in those uncertain summer and winter months.

Commercial Tinting Film: Six Advantages for Your Business

More Than an Office!

Owning your own building or office space is both a lucrative and rewarding endeavor that gives you the freedom to select who you wish to surround yourself with and create an environment that is both positive and productive. However, as it’s been said before, “With great power comes great responsibility” and when owning your own office, this phrase certainly rings true! Obviously keeping your tenants happy is a major concern and while there’s only so much you can control; a safe comfortable environment is something you can provide!

Commercial Tinting Film   

As surely, you’ve heard, window tinting is the practice of applying tinting film to all the major windows or sources of natural light within a building or residence, with the purpose of reducing the amount of sunlight allowed to enter the dwelling.  While protection from excess sunlight is an obvious reason for the application of tinting film, there are multiple benefits offered by commercial tinting film; many of which can be highly beneficial for both the tenants of the building as well as the actual building itself.

Six Advantages of Window Tint

  1. Comfortable Climate: As mentioned previously, if you have hot, blinding rays of sunlight beaming down on you throughout the day, you are almost certain to be miserable! Fortunately, window tinting can resolve this as tinting film both rejects the sun’s heat and humidity from entering through your windows, as well as significantly reducing the glare caused by excessive natural light. Conversely, the weather resistant film material also provides additional insulation for your building, during those cold winter months. Read more here about the advantages of making your work zone comfortable.
  2. Increased Security: As much as we may love our beautiful city of Sacramento, let’s be honest here; break ins happen all the time! Fortunately, by applying commercial tinting film to your building’s windows, the glass will become shatter resistant, and thereby much harder to penetrate. However, keep in mind that while the window may no longer shatter, the glass can still be cracked or broken upon significant impact, thus intruders can sill break in if they are determined enough.
  3. Improved Safety: Safety is very important and certainly your tenants always want to feel as though they are in a safe environment. Therefore, the fact that tinting film strengthens and reinforces glass is certain to provide the staff with a bit of relief as they will indeed be much safer from any outside hazards such as accidents, intruders, or even natural disasters.
  4. Save Energy: Obviously utility bills can be a bit pricey at times, and with a consistent influx of hot or cold air seeping through your windows on a daily basis, these costs are almost guaranteed to skyrocket! This can be reduced by window tinting; however, as by eliminating hot or cold air from entering the building, the occupants may keep their work space at a comfortable temperature without having to contend with outside interference. This in turn, will significantly reduce the overall amount of energy used, thereby cutting down on energy costs regardless of the outside climate, and assuredly save you money!
  5. Added Privacy: While privacy might not seem like a major concern for an office, the additional veil of privacy may enable the office staff to conduct business without any outside distractions or interruptions, thus encouraging a more productive atmosphere.
  6. Alter Interior Lighting: By adjusting the light entering your building, you will not only make better use of its natural light, you will also be able to direct the sunlight away from sensitive furnishings or equipment. When furniture and appliances are repeatedly exposed to the sun’s harsh UV rays over a period of time, the materials may sustain damage or begin to fade and become discolored. Obviously replacing such items is likely to be time consuming and of course costly, by simply redirecting your light sources through tinting film you can avoid such a scenario.

The advantages of having a residential window tinting are numerous and can have a significant impact on variety of different aspects of one’s life. In addition to increased privacy and aesthetic appeal, here are some of the additional benefits you can expect If you have your home’s windows tinted.

Comfortable Temperature: By restricting the amount of sunlight allowed to enter your windows, any excess heat that would accompany the sunlight would be significantly reduced. By applying window tint, the temperature of your home will become much easier to control, thereby allowing you to adjust the climate of your home to your own level of comfort.

This includes carpet, furniture, artwork, woodwork, and anything else the sun’s rays may reach. Fortunately, by applying tinting film to each of your windows, you will protect not only your home’s interior, but spare yourself the aggravation and expense of having to re-furnish and replace the items within your home.

Read more about how residential window tinting can save you money, here.

Cons:

While the positive aspects of residential tinting certainly outweigh any negatives, there are a few potential drawbacks to consider prior to tinting your home’s windows.

Not Unbreakable: This is a common misconception that has persisted over the years and continues to do so. So please remember, while the tinting film DOES increase the strength and durability of your windows, it DOES NOT make the glass unbreakable.

Reduced Night-time Efficiency: Having the inside of your home visible for all to see is an ideal situation, and while window tinting will provide a great veil of privacy during the daytime, if lights are left on at night it will still be possible to see inside. If this is a concern of yours, we recommend curtains or blinds for nighttime usage.

Auto Tinting: We Busted 5 Automotive Window Tinting Myths

Automotive Window Tinting: By Popular Demand

By providing protection from excess sunlight, in addition to offering an increased veil of privacy as well as other aesthetic benefits, there is little wonder as to why automotive window tinting has become such a sought-after commodity in recent years. However, despite its overwhelming popularity, rumors and falsehoods continue to surround the aspect of tinting cars windows, often leading to misconceptions. Therefore, in the section below we will address some of the most common myths surrounding auto tinting in hopes of busting some of these myths once and for all!

Auto Tinting: Five Myths Busted!

Myth: It’s illegal to tint your car’s windows

Busted: To put it bluntly; it is NOT illegal to have your car’s windows tinted. However, there ARE specific state laws and regulations on the shade (or darkness) of the auto tinting allowed, and these laws DO vary from one state to the next. This is very important to keep in mind if you are planning to tint your car’s windows yourself, as failure to adhere to your state’s laws will likely result in hefty fines and requiring you to remove the tinting film. This of course is one of many reasons why many people choose to have their windows tinted by professionals such as our technicians at TintMaster, who are well-versed on state requirements and will ensure you receive the desired result.

Myth: It’s very expensive to have your windows tinted

Busted: While window tinting is not always the cheapest endeavor, the idea that having your windows tinted is excessively expensive is not necessarily true either. If you choose to purchase a DIY window tinting kit and apply the tinting film yourself, the cost of the materials will likely be cheaper as opposed to having the glass professionally tinted. However, if you attempt to tint your windows yourself, you are taking a bit of a risk as the application process is difficult and the tinting materials are of a lower quality. If the process is botched or incorrectly preformed, you may actually find yourself spending MORE on removing the material and replacing it, than you would have on a professional service.

Myth: Window tinting impairs a driver’s vision

Busted: Auto tinting comes in many different shades, and there ARE some shades that can affect visibility, however windows that have been tinted within LEGAL limits shouldn’t impair a driver’s vision. Again, this why it so important to research all aspects of window tinting if you plan on applying the tinting material yourself as tint that is too dark is not only illegal but can be unsafe as well. 

Myth: Window tinting makes glass unbreakable

Busted: While auto tinting does protect your car in the sense of reducing the amount of sunlight that may damage the interior and preventing potential thieves from seeing what’s inside, it does not make the glass unbreakable. If struck with enough force and velocity, tinted glass will certainly break. However, tinted glass will not shatter into tiny shards like regular glass due to the tinting film altering the glass’s overall quality, thus making it slightly more durable.

Myth: Tinting is impermanent and will bubble and fade over time

Busted: Although somewhat common in belief, the idea that tinted windows will inevitably bubble up or start to discolor over a given period of time is false. While certainly a quick image search will yield numerous pictures of disastrous tinting attempts, keep in mind that this is often someone who has attempted to apply the material themselves and not the work of an experienced professional. If correctly administered by professional technician, your car’s tint should last for years without any issues.
