Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to tint my vehicle?
The amount of time varies, depending on your type of vehicle. A complete car can take 2 to 4 hours. Full-sized trucks generally take between an hour and an hour and a half. A set of front doors usually only takes 30-45 minutes. If old aftermarket film has to be removed, that can add anywhere from 30 minutes to half a day.

The percent of visible light allowed through your car windows is called VLT: Visible Light Transmission.

How long do I need to wait before rolling down my windows?
We recommend that you leave your vehicle windows rolled up for at least 24-48 hours after window film has been installed. This allows the film to cure and adhere to the glass before the window is moved.
Can I have tint installed over the factory tinted glass?
Yes you can. we can install window film directly on the factory tinted glass making it darker. The factory tinted glass is a pigment in the glass giving its color.
Aftermarket window film 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.
Are you guys mobile or do I have to bring it to your location?
We only install window film on vehicles inside our clean, air-conditioned facility. This way we have complete control over the environment we install window film in. This is how we control the quality of the install.
We do not recommend any kind of mobile service due to the quality of the installs and the inability to get warranty service if needed.
Why do I see little bubbles or patchiness soon after installation?
This is very normal. Water is used to activate the adhesive and to allow us to move the film around and position it for a perfect installation. Although we squeegee out as much of the water as possible, some small amount remains between the glass and the film. As this water evaporates through the film you may see some little bubbles or foggy patches. These should go away within a few days or up to two weeks(during the colder months of the year.) Never poke, prod, or pop these bubbles, they will go away on their own.
Can I have my 2 front doors tinted to match the rear factory tinted glass?
Yes. However, having this level of window film on front doors is not legal in Georgia. Factory tinted glass is usually 15%-22% V.L.T. Georgia window tint law requires that the front doors be no darker than 32% net(Film & Glass ), which is lighter than the rear window of your factory tinted vehicle.
Can window film ever be removed?
Yes, Window Film can be removed at any time after the installation. As a tint professional we know all the tips and tricks on proper tint removal. Please call us if you require a removal. It is a very tough and messy job, not recommended for beginners.
What do I use to clean my tinted windows?
We recommend using any glass cleaner that is ammonia-free and soft paper towels or a microfiber cloth. Always clean your windows in the shades and use a dry cloth for final drying to prevent streaks.
Why do I see bubbled or purple tint on cars?
Unfortunately, there are companies out there that use low-quality products and are inexperienced in the proper installation of window films. All the window films we offer come with a full lifetime warranty for materials and labor from the manufacturer. We register this warranty for you so you will always be protected. If a problem ever arises all you need to do is return for warranty service or call the 1-800 # on your warranty card.
