Window FIlm Installation and Window Tinting

Wondering whether car window tinting is right for you, and how you should proceed if it is? We’re so glad you asked.

You’re no stranger to car window tinting. Especially in the bright California sun, darkened windows help drivers stay cooler. Plus, they help decrease the blinding glare drivers face on sunny days. Beyond the comfort and safety tinted windows provide, there’s also the aesthetics to consider. Tinted windows don’t just look cool; they are cool.

It’s even become popular for businesses to tint their windows to offer privacy to clients and customers. Many strategically leave one display window clear, protecting the rest of their shop with dark window coatings. Tinted windows block UV rays and prying eyes at the same time.

Are you interested in automotive, residential, or commercial coatings for your own car or building? Then it’s time to find out more today.

Why Get Window Film Installation?

So why is tinting car windows a good idea? For one, tinting cars makes them much more private. For everyday commuters or families, this might not seem like such a big deal. After all, you’ve got nothing to hide. Others, however, routinely carry high-ticket items in their cars and want to keep them safe. For instance, delivery people or traveling salespeople often carry prototypes that cost their companies a lot of money. You can’t afford to make yourself a target by unintentionally putting those goods on display.

These days, though, you can never take too much caution. Many mothers and fathers now prefer not to advertise that they have little ones on board. Tinting the back windows to make car seats harder to see has its upsides. That’s up to personal preference.

Either way, tinting cars can help you accomplish those goals. Plus, if you decide to tint windows, you’ll see many more benefits than that.

What Are the Benefits of Car Window Tinting?

Car window tinting (not to mention other types of tinting) offers a huge range of benefits to help you protect your property, possessions, and people. Among the benefits are:

  • Reduction in glare, ranging from 30 to 80 percent, depending on the needs of the customer.
  • Reduction in energy costs. It takes less energy to cool a room when the sun isn’t flooding in at nearly the same rate. Plus, tinted windows trap heat in during the winter
  • Holding the glass in place when shattered for great safety.
  • Reduction in personal injury and property damage from shattered glass.
  • Reduction in the chances of break-ins from thieves trying to steal objects visible through the glass.
  • Significantly less damage from UV rays, both to people and to property.

For obvious reasons, tinting windows is a good call for any business that sells expensive items or, as mentioned, frequently transports them in the car. Tinted windows don’t cost that much, either. For the benefits they give, they practically pay for themselves within the first year of heightened security and the reduced damage from UV rays.

How Much Does Window Tinting Cost?

The answer is simple: It varies. For smaller cars using the most basic tinting materials, the cost may clock in around a hundred dollars for an entire car. For higher-quality materials, it’s likely more. It’s the same for the significantly larger expanse of glass needing coverage in homes and businesses. What we can tell you: It’s worth it, and we’ll be happy to give you pricing for your specific project.
