Window Tint Guides & FAQs

Window tinting is not a job for the faint of heart but is definitely doable by anyone with a little bit of patience. Best of all, you can save yourself hundreds of dollars if you tint your windows yourself so read on and find out how.

More than Just Another Accessory

Window tinting is one of the most common automotive modifications and is so commonplace that most people don't even consider it an aftermarket upgrade. In fact, automotive glass tint is so pervasive and in such demand that most people can't imagine driving a vehicle without having all or most of their auto glass tinted and for good reason; not only does window tint help you get the best possible visibility when it's applied as a sun visor strip on your front windshield but it can also lengthen the life of all of your interior parts and upholstery by protecting them from damaging UV rays. In addition to protecting things, the same tint can shield you and your loved ones from the carcinogenic rays of the sun...a feat not many other auto accessories can boast.

Window tint is more than just a cosmetic accessory to add to your car or truck — in many parts of the country and world it's an absolute necessity. But, as anyone who owns a vehicle knows, it can be downright expensive to have your windows tinted by a shop. Still, the reason that professional tinters get paid so much is because window tinting is not as simple as slapping on a bumper sticker.
