Have you been thinking about having your car’s windows tinted but just aren’t sure when to do it? Window tinting is a great way to block UV rays, decrease glare and protect visibility for the driver. At Car Pretty, we provide high-quality window tinting for all customers in Philadelphia and the surrounding area who want to experience a safe driving experience. We can also help you decide how to choose the best season for window tinting.
Window tinting begins with cleaning both the inside and the outside of your windows. Then, the window film is cut to the correct size for the vehicle. At Car Pretty, one of our installation experts will place the film on your windows using a squeegee so that all of the bubbles and wrinkles are smoothed out. The entire process can be completed in a day, but we always recommend allowing the window tint time to set.
The amount of time required for your window tint job to set varies, depending on the climate. You can’t roll the windows up or down during this period, and humidity can affect the time that it takes for the process to complete, as well. Most people opt to have their windows tinted in either the spring or the fall since the temperatures are generally mild and the humidity is usually low. Although rain can be an issue in the spring, and heat can rise in some areas during fall, these are still the most popular tinting seasons.
If you decide to have your windows tinted in either the summer or the fall, you’ll need to take in a few considerations. For one, high humidity can make the process harder for the installation technicians. In the winter, window tinting can become challenging because the cold weather dramatically increases the set time. Some shops aren’t even equipped to do a winter window tinting job at all.
If you find a shop that has a climate-controlled environment, the window tinting isn’t an issue. However, in many cases, it’s usually best to simply wait until spring or fall to have your windows tinted. If you’re interested in having your windows tinted, then contact Car Pretty to find out what we can do to be of assistance. Our quality window film lasts many years and our installation techniques are excellent.
