  •  

  • Q: What does the different levels of film or the number mean?

  •  

  • Q: Is the film applied on the outside of the window?

  •  

  • Q: How long does it take to tint a vehicle?
  • A: The amount of time it would take to tint your vehicle depends on the vehicle type and most importantly EXPERIENCE!
  • A complete car can take anywhere from two to four hours. Full-sized trucks generally take about an hour and a half or so. If you are interested in only tinting the two front doors, thirty to forty minutes is usually satisfactory. If your vehicle has old film that needs to be removed, this process adds additional time and cost. These time estimates are for ideal situations; as with anything, things may happen that can extend window film installation time. Please keep this in mind when making your appointment.
  • Q: I just had my windows tinted, why do they look hazy?
  • A: The moisture that remains between the film and the glass after installation can cause a hazy, streaky, blotchy appearance. It takes time for the adhesive/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  hours, days, or even months through the cold winter months.
  • Q: Can I roll my windows down right away after I’ve had film installed?
  • A: We recommend that you leave your vehicle windows rolled up for at least 24 hours after the window film installation. This allows the film to cure and adhere to the glass before the window is moved.
  • Q: What should I use to clean my windows after I’ve had them tinted?
  • A: After window film installation, wait a week before cleaning the inside of the window where the film was installed. We recommend foam cleaners because they do not streak, and are usually ammonia-free.
  • Q: What causes window film to turn purple?
  • A: Cheap dyed films.
  • Q: If my window film is damaged, can it be fixed?
  • A: Damaged window film cannot be repaired, but the damaged piece of film can be removed and the glass can be retinted.
  • Q: Can the front two doors be matched to the vehicle's factory window tint on trucks or suv's?
  • A: Unfortunately not, the Georgia law is 32%. However keep in mind, that is reducing light by 68%!
  • Q: Can I darken vehicle factory window tint?
  • A: Yes. As long as it is factory window tint, we can install window film directly on the glass.  Aftermarket window film also has many more solar benefits than factory window tint. Factory tint only rejects part of the UV rays, and only rejects a small amount of heat. Aftermarket window film rejects 99% of ultraviolet rays and between 35%-60% of heat, depending on the film level used. In addition to these benefits, darkening factory tinted glass will give you more privacy for storing your personal items in the back of the vehicle and on these areas we highly recommend our infra red or ceramic films.

  • Q: Does window film prevent glass from breaking?
  • A: No, window film does not prevent glass from breaking. Window film does increase the safety of the glass; due to a very aggressive adhesive, the film helps to hold the pieces of broken glass together. In the event the glass breaks, due to an auto accident, a person running into it, or an attempted break-in, the glass will shatter, but in most instances, the film will help keep the glass together.
  •  

  • Q: Can window film increase safety and security?
  • A: Yes, window film adds a degree of shatter resistance to the glass areas of your home, building, or vehicle.
  •  

  • Q: Does blocking UV rays help prevent fading and deterioration?
  • A: Yes. The same sun that brightens a room’s interior can be detrimental to your skin, eyes, fabrics, furnishings, artwork, and rugs. Ultraviolet rays are the main cause of both fade and deterioration. Window films can screen out 99% of the damaging UV rays that can fade richly colored furniture, tapestries, and artwork.
  • Q: How does window film lower energy costs?
  • A: In summer, window film reflects the hot sun, reducing heat gain and lowering air conditioning costs. In winter, window film retains heat — up to 15% — to reduce heating costs.
  • Q: Can window film reduce glare?
  • A: Yes. Glare not only causes eye fatigue, but it can also be dangerous when driving. Drawing curtains or closing blinds can make a room feel darker and smaller, and it can increase utility bills due to artificial lighting. Window films allow light through but not glare, and it helps maintain an “open” feeling. Glare can be dangerous when driving as well; window film can reduce glare 50%-90%, allowing for a much safer driving experience.
  • Q: Can window film help with privacy?
  • A: Yes. Window films gives a clear view to the outside. Depending on the degree of privacy desired.
