Answer: There are several reasons to tint the windows in your automobile, house or commercial property. The most important reason to tint the windows in your car, home or business is window film blocks 99% of the suns harmful UV rays that have been shown to cause skin cancer. Window film also reduces fading or cracking on the interior of your vehicle and helps prevent fading of your furniture or possessions in your home or office. Window tint also helps reduce the suns glare on things like your computer screen or TV. Applying window film to the windows in your home or office will help lower energy costs by retaining heat in winter months and reflecting up to 80% of the suns heat in the summer months. Window tint on your vehicle will save you money on fuel costs by blocking more of the suns heat which means the AC wont have to be run so high. Window tint is an economically friendly answer we all need in hard times like this. Another extremely important reason to have window film applied to your windows is security. If a window has been broken the window tint will, in most cases, hold the window in place giving you added protection against injuries from broken glass.

3.What is the legal limit of tint in the state of Florida?

4.How long does applying window film to the windows in my car, home or office take?
Answer: Tinting the windows in your automobile takes about 1 1/2 - 2 hours with an appointment. Compared to other shops who will need the car most of the day. We never compromise quality for time so rest assured you will have a clean install and a professional job. You will be in the comfort of your own home, or Working at your place of work.
Applying window film to the windows in your house or place of business takes about 1 hour for 6 windows depending on size and accessibility. For example the windows in a bedroom would take the typical amount of time versus skylights which are a little more difficult to get to which requires more time.
5.Does window tint go on the outside or inside?
Answer:Window film goes on the inside of the window. We fit the film on the outside of the vehicle to ensure no damage is done to the interior. Then once the film is ready for application it is installed on the inside of the window.
6.How long do I have to wait to roll down my windows once I have window tint applied?
Answer: It is very important you wait 3 days before you roll your windows down.
7.Will the windows in my car bubble, blister or turn purple if I get my car windows tinted?
Answer: We use top of the line products and carry films that are guaranteed never to bubble, blister, peel or fade to purple for as long as you own the vehicle. Bubbling, and fading of window tint is caused by poor applications, very low quality film, using the wrong cleaning solutions, extreme temperatures or it could be just because it's a very old film.
8.Will window tint affect or damage the defrosters in my vehicle?
Answer: Window film does not damage or affect the defrosters on your vehicle, we apply the window film right over top of them. However, we do recommend you wait at least 24 hours before using the defrosters.
9.Can window tint be removed and is it something I can do myself?
Answer: Yes, window tint can be removed. It can be a difficult task depending on how long the film has been on the vehicle. We recommend you leave it to a professional. Otherwise you risk damaging the glass and defrosters. We have specific methods we use to ensure we don't cause any type of damage to your windows or your vehicle and in most cases can save the rear defroster.
10.What types of warranties come with window film applications?
Answer: We carry window films for your vehicle that come with a lifetime warranty for as long as you own your vehicle. However, if you sell the vehicle the warranty does not transfer over to the new owner. Residential and Commercial window films come with a 10-12 year warranty. With our expert installation your windows will likely last for over 15 years.
