Trust the Professionals - My Car Detail Chicago

Since we have already established what car window tint is, we’ll start off by the what the types of car window tint are. There are two major distinctions: metallic film and non-reflectorized. Metallic films reflect the sunlight to protect the cabin from potential heat damage and the occupants from hot temperatures.

The disadvantage to this is since it is a metallic reflective material, it can possibly interfere with signals and other EM waves such as those used by Wi-Fi, cellphones, etcetera. Meanwhile, non-reflectorized, owing to what is said on the tin, is non-reflective, choosing instead to absorb the incoming rays of sunshine, providing more vision and overall quality, however not as effective as metallic films in protecting against heat.

Importance of Tint Percentage

An important step in car window tints is knowing which percent of tint to use. Too light can offer little protection but can go well if you just want that, and too dark tints can make you seem suspicious and are sometimes not allowed by laws because enforcers and patrolling policemen can’t check on the occupants if they are abiding by safety regulations. Usually, only limos and other vehicles needing maximum privacy employ the use of really dark tints. So, carefully do research on what you want and what suits you when choosing the amount of tint to be applied.

Another tip to note is if it is your complete first time and without any prior practice, do not attempt to apply the tint all by yourself! Unless you are really certain with your own skill, doing it by yourself in your first try can often lead to mistakes and imperfections which can be visually seen and have an uneven or bad effectiveness to your car.

Do research on a reputable tinting shop and a professional before availing their services. You can save a lot by DIY-ing it, however with a reputable tinting shop and a professional, you are assured that they are going to do a professional job of applying the window tint.

Proper Window Tint Maintenance

Once the tint is applied, you will need to know how to take proper maintenance so it lasts a long time. First tip is to let it dry and stick there for a while and don’t use the raise or lower the windows often. Mind your distance from the newly-tinted windows when carrying around anything that can make a dent on it. When cleaning it, make sure to use soft microfiber cleaners and as much as possible, use mild or organic cleaners; those newly-fitted films are still delicate and will take some time to get used to being applied!

Finally, check with your provider if they have a warranty for the tint job to maximize what you can get from it. If there is going to be any compromise in quality or craft or workmanship by your service provider, then knowing a warranty is issued will definitely be handy in having it replaced and refitted it properly this time!
