5 Questions to Consider for the Tint Shop

5 Questions to Consider for the Tint Shop




1) How long will it take to tint my car?

The average time it takes to tint a 2 or 4 door car is approximately 1 to 1.5 hours; we recommend dropping off your car when

possible to allow plenty of time to get the best possible result.

This time includes: cleaning the windows before installing the film, actually tinting the car, drying time, and making sure your

car is ready for you to take home and start enjoying your window tinting.


2) What does window tinting cost?

Often, a new or unscrupulous window tinting company will offer a very low bait price

however; window tinting should range for an average 2 or 4 door car approximately $150 to $250 depending on the type of

film you choose. Trucks might be slightly less and SUV’s slightly more dependent on the vehicle.


3) What should I do before my appointment to ensure the best possible window tinting job?

The cleaner the car, the better the install — so make sure to wash the outside of your vehicle before bringing it to the shop.

Store personal items in the trunk or remove from the car — the installer must climb in the car to install the film.


4) What if I am late for my appointment?

We block out a certain amount of time for each customer’s vehicle in order to provide the best customer service.  Therefore, if

you are more than 10 minutes late for your appointment you may have to reschedule.

*If you miss your appointment a deposit of $50 will be required before another appointment can be scheduled.


5) What should I expect after my car is tinted?

You must leave your windows rolled up for two days after the windows are tinted because water, used to install the film, often

sits just below the lower seals on the inside of the car for a day or two before drying.  The window tint will also look wet,

hazing, lumpy, etc., for 7 to 14 days depending on the weather and the type of film installed.
