FAQ’s For Window Tinting

There is no shortage of businesses and individuals that claim to be window tint professionals, but that doesn’t mean that they are or that you should go with a company just because they claim so. The fact of the matter is that not all window tint professionals are the same. You should not be afraid to ask difficult questions about their window tint service and history. It’s your money and you have a right to know if they really want your business.

Here are some questions that you better ask before choosing a window tint professional:


Before you commit to the service you better be clear on what it will cost you. This includes the service, warranty, the window tint film itself as well as any hidden fees that they may try to squeeze in. Make sure they know that you don’t want anything extra done and that they should ask you before doing any extra service that will cost you, no matter what it is.

Another thing, don’t be afraid to ask about specials or coupons. If you don’t ask for it but they offer it then chances are they won’t just give it to you. It’s your job to be informed by asking. It’s your money, so you need to be responsible with it and see how much you can save.

Window Tint Heat Protection

The window tint heat protection is something that you need to consider, especially if you live in a warmer climate like Texas or Arizona. A typical window tint film will provide anywhere from 20%-65% heat protection, but you need to ask and make sure at what percentage you will have protection from the window tint that you are having installed. You don’t want to waste the time and money of getting window installed that isn’t going to do exactly what you want it to do.


Most reputable companies that stand by their product and service will offer a warranty. Any company that does not offer a warranty you should be weary of. With this in mind remember, the longer the warranty, the more legitimate the company.

I always recommend buying the warranty if it comes at an extra cost. It’s not worth the risk for me not to invest in a warranty. And you have to remember that window tint, even when installed correctly can eventually peel or begin to bubble up. If you can get this fixed without extra charge then why not?

With any business that you do business with you should take time and do your research. I live in Dallas, but I chose an Austin window tint company for my car because of reviews and products. To me it was worth the drive to get what I needed. In another instance I used to drive 30 minutes just to get a cup of my favorite coffee because it felt like a waste of money to buy a cup from somewhere else if I wasn’t pleased with the taste or service. The point is that you should get what you pay for be it coffee or window tint.
