Can you have window tinting applied to your windows in wet or cold weather?

Yes! With the modern adhesive systems found on today's window tinting products, it is possible to have your car windows tinted even in freezing weather. However, the curing time may be extended in adverse conditions. Professional installers take the weather into consideration during installation, allowing more time to apply heat to the edges of the tint to activate the drying process. Be sure to purchase name brand high performance or metal window tinting products to insure high quality adhesives.

How will window-tinting affect my defroster performance?

Window tinting actually helps to insulate the window and helps the defroster clear the glass of frost and fog quicker.

How do I clean my windows to ensure it lasts as long as possible?

We recommend a non-ammonia cleaner and a soft cloth, such as a T-shirt. Vinegar and water (1 part vinegar to 10 parts water), or Windex with vinegar available at any store. Be sure to read the label that it does not contain ammonia. If you use a professional window cleaner let them know which windows are tinted.

What causes window tinting to bubble?

UV rays from the sun that are responsible for damaging your cars interior and excessive heat build-up are usually the cause of bubbles forming in the window tint. The bubbles are a result of a failure in the adhesive system. Protect yourself from this potential problem by purchasing a major brand name window tint material. The major window tint manufacturers, in their high performance and metal window tints, have a high temperature adhesive system and 99% of UV protection capabilities, which along with the metalizing technology, allows them to give a manufacture backed guarantee against bubbling of window tinting. These films are available from most reputable dealers.
