Window Tint FAQs

What Are The Benefits Of Window Film?

The many benefits of window film include heat reduction, eye comfort, UV protection, aesthetics, and increased safety, privacy, and energy savings.

What Do The Different Shades Of Film Mean?

Film percentages stand for visual light transmission (VLT), or the amount of light that is allowed through the film. The lower the percentage, the darker the film. With modern advances in window film, you can have great heat rejection with lighter films, no need to have dark window tint to receive the heat rejection benefits.

I Just Had My Windows Tinted, Why Do They Look Hazy?

The moisture that remains between the film and the glass after installation can cause a hazy, streaky, blotchy appearance. It takes several days for the film to completely cure. The remaining moisture will evaporate through the film; depending on the type of film, this process may take a couple of days, or even a couple of months (depending on your climate). When the water evaporates completely, your windows should have excellent clarity.

Is The Tint Applied To The Outside Of The Window?

No. Window film is installed on the inside of the glass. This allows for maximum durability

Do I Need To Wait To Roll My Windows Down?

We recommend that you leave your vehicle windows rolled up for at least 24-36 hours after window film has been installed. This allows the film to cure and adhere to the glass before the window is moved.

Does Blocking UV Rays Help Prevent Fading And Deterioration

Yes. The same sun that brightens your car’s interior can be detrimental to fabrics, leather, dashboard, and other interior surfaces. Ultraviolet rays are the main cause of both fade and deterioration. XPEL window films can screen up to 99% of the damaging UV rays that can fade surfaces.
