Window Tinting Basics

Have you ever wished for greater privacy or security from your windows? Do you want more protection from UV rays? Do you hope to reduce the heat coming through your windows? Do you want all of these without reducing the amount of light coming through your windows? If so, window tinting is the answer for you.

Window Tinting Basics

Window tinting is the application of a thin laminate film to glass. It can be applied to glass installed in vehicles, homes, commercial properties, and boats. Each film is specific to its usage. Auto tinting is different from residential window tinting, just as marine film differs from commercial window film. And depending on where the tint is applied, there are several varieties and properties to choose from, such as:

  • Shade of tint
  • Levels of privacy
  • Glare control
  • Security
  • Safety
  • Energy efficiency
  • Heat reduction
  • Decoration

While you can apply the window tinting yourself, we recommend that you hire professionals to do the work for you. Professional installers have the knowledge to achieve the best method for adhesion and will not leave creases or bubbles on the windows.

Window tinting does not permanently change the window. If you want to change the existing film because it is too dark, has faded, or has become damaged, you can have it professionally removed. Professional removal guarantees complete removal without damaging your windows.
