AUTO WINDOW TINTING PEORIA

Add window tinting to your vehicle to update the look and increase comfort.

The common misconception about tint is this: Many people think you need to have really dark tint in order to achieve high heat rejection in your vehicle. This just simply isn't true. With today's technologies, manufacturers are able to produce window films that are nearly clear, yet block as much heat as some of the darkest shades. You can still keep your visibility while driving AND have a high heat rejecting tint. In order to know which films have a high heat rejection, be sure to view what the published TSER rating is from the manufacturer. Most tint companies will be able to provide this to you via a brochure or wall display board, or you can typically search for it on each manufacturer's website.

Key words know about before getting window tinting:

VLT

= Visible Light Transmission. This is the percentage of light that will STILL be coming through your window with tint installed. For example, if you have the AZ legal limit on your driver's side door, it would be a 35% shading, meaning 35% of the light is coming through while 65% of the light is being blocked out. The smaller the VLT number, the darker the film appears on your vehicle. Limo, or 5% film, is the darkest shade offered by most manufacturers.

TSER

= Total Solar Energy Rejected. This is the percentage of heat that will be BLOCKED by the tint. The higher the TSER number is, the less heat will be coming through your windows. Choosing a film with a higher TSER will make you more comfortable in your vehicle. (We choose to recommend films that start around 40% TSER and go up from there. Anything starting in the range of 20% to low 30% will most likely leave your car too hot in the Arizona summer.)

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Window Tint?

Window Tint or Window Film is a product, typically made out of polyester, designed to coat the glass of your vehicle or home to filter, reflect, and/or absorb the heat and harmful rays of the sun.

How long does Clear Bra last?

With proper care and maintenance, clear bras should last the term length of the corresponding manufacturer’s warranty. We have seen a number of our customer’s cars a few years beyond the length of the warranty with the film still being in great shape. Again, it depends on how you maintenance it.
The current industry standard warranty period for clear bra is 5 years, and a few films offer 10 years of warranty coverage, depending on the product installed. Be sure to ask what the warranty period is and what the warranty covers before having any clear bra added to your vehicle.

What do I need to know after having window tint installed on my vehicle?

  • Please keep the windows rolled up for 24 hours after your appointment to allow the film time to cure.
  • You initially may see some fogginess and/or streaking, as well as some little water beads. This is due to the film being installed with a water solution. Rest assured that it is just part of the drying process and it will all go away. The manufacturers state that it could take up to 30 days to dry out, but in our hot Arizona climate it will be dry within a week or even faster (depending on the current temperatures outside). The more you can leave the vehicle in the direct sun, the faster the window tint will cure and dry out.
  • We will clean your windows after installing the window tint. Please don’t wash the interior of your windows for approx. 72 hours. This will allow time for the adhesive to cure. After that, you can use a soft towel (microfiber is best) and water.

What do I need to know after having a clear bra installed on my vehicle?

  • Please do not wash your vehicle for 72 hours after the installation. We will clean the areas of your vehicle that we work on before giving it back to you so that you won’t have the urge to wash it right away.
  • Like tint, paint protection films are installed with a water solution, and you may initially see some small water beads under the film. These are part of the drying process and they will go away within 30 days of the installation (or faster).
  • High pressure spraying the area where the clear bra is installed is not recommended. This can cause the edge of the film to lift or tear, and potentially allow dirt to collect on the adhesive, which will leave an uneven edge or a dirty spot in the film which could lead to that piece of film needing to be replaced. High pressure spray damage is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
  • Please refer to the care instructions on the warranty card given to you.  We are always happy to answer any additional questions you have regarding caring for your paint protection film.

How long will it take to have Window Tint installed?

The process varies from vehicle to vehicle. The average amount of time is 2-3 hours. The time frame needed depends on the vehicle year/make/model, and the cleanliness of the windows and seals.

Is the tint applied to the outside of the glass?

Tint is formed and cut to fit each window on the exterior of the vehicle, and is then installed to the interior side of the glass.

Will having my back window tinted cause the defroster not to work?

Adding tint to your vehicle will NOT cause your defroster to stop working.

If I choose to have my Window Tint removed, is that possible?

Window tint can be removed if you no longer wish for it to be there.

Why do some vehicles have a purple colored tint or have bubbles in the window?

Purpling and bubbling are the result of window tint failure. Low quality window tint/films tend to fail the quickest. When this happens, it creates poor visibility when driving and can make it very dangerous for some drivers. Failing window film should be removed at first sign of product failure. Consumer Tip: Be sure to get a film with a manufacturer’s lifetime warranty and ask what the warranty actually covers (short term warranties are not enough!). The most important part – KEEP THE WARRANTY CARD! This will allow for you to have the tint removed and replaced (in the case of film failure) at the manufacturer’s expense, not yours.

I’ve seen cars with Clear Bras that have turned yellow – will this happen to my car?

There are a number of reasons why a clear bra can turn yellow. Yellowing is most commonly caused by lack of material maintenance, film failure, certain climate conditions, or solvents that contaminate or stain the material. Although we don’t see it often, it does happen. A high quality clear bra product will be backed by the manufacturer against turning yellow. Be sure you get a manufacturer’s warranty card issued at the time of install, and most importantly – KEEP THE WARRANTY CARD. The current industry standard warranty period for clear bra is 5 years, and a few films offer 10 years of warranty coverage, depending on the product installed. Be sure to ask what the warranty period is and what the warranty covers before having any clear bra added to your vehicle.

What areas of my vehicle should I have Clear Bra on?

Clear bra material can be applied to any painted surface. It is not recommended for chrome, un-painted plastics, certain matte-finishes, or acrylic surfaces. Always ask your installation company about what can be covered on your specific vehicle.

What is a Frequency Friendly Film?

Most late model cars and trucks have antennas and censors located on the glass surfaces. Older technology metallized films will cause disruption to these signals, creating issues within the electronic features such as radios and GPS. To avoid this from happening, manufacturers offer frequency friendly films. Nano technology films are an excellent choice and are safe to use on late model cars. They contain zero metal, yet still offer high heat rejection. When in doubt, an experienced tint professional can help you choose a product that will be safe to use on your specific vehicle.

What are the benefits of Window Tint?

Adding window tint to your auto or home provides UV protection, heat rejection, and sometimes privacy or security depending on the product that is used.

Can I get a ticket in other states for my window tint?

You cannot get a ticket in another state if you are within the legal limit for the state that your car is registered to. If your tint is NOT legal in your home state, then yes, you are able to be ticketed in any other state as well.

What is a good cleaner for my window tint?

Any glass cleaner works well, just be sure to use a soft cloth. Dry or dirty towels may scratch the tint and cause damage to the film.
