Tinting Complicated Rear Windows in Philadelphia

    If you are new to window tinting, then you might be unsure about what to look for in a vehicle that has been tinted properly.  At Car Pretty of Philadelphia, we can help you learn the ins and outs about window tinting so that if you decide to have your own vehicle professionally tinted, you will know exactly what to look for.  One of the reasons that people often become frustrated with vehicle tinting is because tinting the rear windows can often be problematic or time-consuming.  While there are several ways to apply vehicle tint on a rear window, at Car Pretty, we strive for the most simplistic and time-efficient method out there.  

    While applying window tint is a pretty straight-forward process, there still exists a margin for error.  If you are looking for a quality tint job that will not break the bank, then stop in and find out why Car Pretty is the window tint leader for all of Philadelphia.  We can show you how a rear window tint job should look, and then explain the process while you wait.  

    On most cars, the window glass is curved.  This results in the film not having as much likelihood to wrinkle.  In most cases, the film will just remain flat on the glass.  However, some rear car windows actually have what is known as a compound curve.  This makes it more difficult to apply the tint so that it applies smoothly on the glass.  Window tinters are basically left with two options:  apply the tint in smaller stirps, or apply the tint with a single piece of film.  

    Generally speaking, most cars, regardless of the curvature, can be tinted with one sheet of film.  This is undoubtedly the better option, and at Car Pretty of Philadelphia, we do whatever we can to make sure that you receive a quality tint job using this preferred method.  Heat shrinking a single piece allows for a look that is more uniform and attractive.  What’s more, it will also guarantee less probability of peeling further on down the road.  It will also be easier to remove in the future, if you decide to do so.  At Car Pretty, we use a single sheet of tinting film and cut it from the roll so that it fits the width of your window.  We then use a wool glove and press it across the window, then use a heat gun to seal the film.
