5 Questions to Ask When Choosing a Window Tint Installer

5 Questions to Ask When Choosing a Window Tint Installer

Questions help us understand the world around us.

Or, more exactly, the answers to those questions help us understand.

Unfortunately, coming up with the right questions, or any questions at all, can be somewhat of a challenge. Especially, if you’re at a total loss for information.

But not to worry.

Here are 5 questions to ask when choosing a car window installer.

Don’t be shy and ask before you buy your tints!

  1. What percentage is allowed in my state?

If you know the answer already, this is a great way to test the installer on basic knowledge.

If you don’t know, this is a great way to check whether the installer doesn’t either.

You want an installer that is knowledgeable about the field of window tints. Because, you want someone who can advise you and offer the best options.

Not to mention, keep you straight within the law.

  1. What materials do you use for your tint?

The answer better be “high quality” before you agree to buy anything from the installer.

Aside from that, it’s important to know what materials the window tints are actually made of. Typically, the higher quality tints are made from a thin ceramic film.

There are tons of tint manufacturers out there. Some good, and some not as good. So, ask what brand the installer uses and look up reviews online.

  1. How much do you charge per tint?

Or: How much do you charge per set of tints?

If we’re being real- price is important. And, it makes a big impact in our decision to choose one tint over the other, or one tint installer over another.

It’s a good idea to set a budget for yourself in advance. Ask yourself, what’s the highest you’re willing to spend? Then set the bar a little lower. When talking face to face with salesmen, it’s easy to get influenced. But, if you set your high price just a tad lower, you’re giving yourself wiggle room just in case you fold under pressure.

This way, even if you go over budget- you’re still right on track.

And don’t forget to haggle!

  1. What if my tints break?

What this question is essentially saying in the nicest of terms is “what are you going to do for me if my tints break. And, are you going to take responsibility?”

No matter how high-quality something is, there’s always the chance that it might break.

After all, accidents happen.

And when that accident happens, you want to be sure that your tint installer is going to help.

A responsible tint installer will offer some type of warranty for their tints or tint installation.

  1. What technology do you use to cut and install?

There’s no use in picking a top-quality window tint just to have it installed incorrectly.

Even if there is a warranty.

Ask about what technology the installer uses to cut the tints precisely to your windows. How can the tint installer guarantee accuracy? Then ask about the installer’s method for adhering the tint film to the inside of your window.

A good installation job can truly make or break the whole window tint experience.

How Window Tints Can Protect You From UV Rays

How Window Tints Can Protect You from UV Rays

Before we get started with blocking and preventing UV rays from harming us, let’s go through why they are bad to begin with.

What’s really so bad about UV rays?

“UV” is an abbreviation for ultraviolet light. As the sun sends down its miraculous rays of light that let us see where we’re going and give us our daily percentages of vitamin D, it also sends down ultraviolet light rays.

UV rays are invisible to the naked eye, being smaller than visible light rays and they pack a powerful punch. Because, they are actually a form of radiation.

And as we know from the atom bomb, radiation is not a good thing.  Obviously, the sun’s radiation that hits us is not as strong as a bomb, but it still does its own measure of damage. Over long periods of exposure, UV rays can severely harm our skin, causing skin damage, skin cancer, and more.

The worst part is, we don’t see the damage until it’s too late.

How can window tints protect you from harmful UV rays?

Luckily, there are ways to prevent skin damage from UV radiation.

The first preventative measure is to wear sun screen. Rain or shine, sunscreen can be a life saver. Literally.

But if you’re someone who spends hours in the car each day, you may want a little more protection than just sunscreen. Because, full disclosure, UV radiation can go through clear glass. Even safety glass.

Car window tints can protect from up to 99% of UV rays.

Even if you’re someone who wears sunscreen 24/7, it can never hurt to have a little extra protection. And, if you’re someone who never wears sunscreen or often forgets to put it on- getting window tints installed in your car is definitely a good safety precaution.

Are window tints a good solution for skin protection?

Yes!

Window tints are an easy and efficient way to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV light rays.

First of all, car window tints are affordable. Finding low cost window tints is an easy feat. And, many window tint installers offer cheaper deals if you just ask.

Second, window tints are a quick solution.  Choose your installer, choose your tint, and then you’re good to go. It doesn’t take long to get window tints installed, and it doesn’t take long for them to dry and cure.

As opposed to sunscreen which you have to remember to put on every single day, multiple times a day- window tints are a one-time ordeal. Once you get them installed, you never have to think twice about them.

Your new tints will always be there, right beside you, protecting you from non-visible radiation.

Where to buy window tints that block out UV rays?

You owe it to yourself to take care of your health and safety.

For that reason, it’s important to choose a high-quality tint AND a professional, responsible tint installer.

Here at Car Pretty Window Tinting, we offer guidance and advice so you can find the best tint for you. And we don’t stop there. Once you’ve chosen the perfect tint, we use our top of the line technology to precisely measure, cut, and install your window tints.
