Many folks wonder if they need to drop off there car for window tinting or if they can wait on it.
At Carmeltint.com we try to make things easy for everyone - You and Us.
The typical full car window tint installation will take under 2 hours in most cases. However, if we run into any difficulty at all it will prolong the install time. Therefore, if you are on a tight schedule, you SHOULD consider dropping off your car and picking it up later. We always try to send a text message upon completion so our clients can return at their leisure to pick up their cars.
Consider too, that we will not feel rushed if you do drop off your car. Many times we can get a jump on things if we finish with the car ahead of yours and yours has been dropped off.
If you want to wait, we have a comfortable showroom with WIFI, and a desk so you can do some work while you wait.
In any event, you can decide what works for you and we will work with that decision.
Hope that helps!

Reasons to tint vary from individual to individual. The old reason was because it made a vehicle "look cool". But there are better reasons to do so.
What Film Is Best For Me? How do I choose a window tint film that will fit my particular situation best? With so many choices, How do I know?
Please be advised, there is a major problem with Mercedes rear window defrost wires that are not adhered properly to the rear window of many late model Mercedes vehicles.
Not all models have this problem and we have not seen a lot of this. However, it is widely reported by tint shops all over the internet that these wires will easily come off.
Our video to the right illustrates how just Scotch tape attached to a dealer temporary plate and taped to the rear window took off a wire during removal of the plate.
Be aware that if you bring us a Mercedes to tint and one of more of the wires move, fall off, or come off during the process - WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR IT. This is a manufacturing defect.
Are there any other makers who have fallen victim to the wires not adhering to the back window??
YES! It has been reported that AUDI, and FORD have recently had the same problem.
Therefore, while not every car is a victim of this problem, and we have only seen 2 cars - 2012 Audi A4, and the Mercedes in the video - with it, be advised that it CAN happen to you.

This page clearly outlines what people say about us. We have recorded our recent reviews from Google so you can read for yourself about the job we do.
Here is something we hear a lot these days... "I Have a Truck, So I Only Need the Fronts Done" Is that true?
Yes and NO.
Yes if all you are going for is looks, blending the back of your truck/SUV with the front and comfort from the heat is not a big deal.
NO, if you want protection from the sun and you also want to knock down the heat coming into the vehicle.
If you are tinting strictly for looks and heat rejection is not an issue for you, go with our Color Stable Dyed Film for $99 and be done with it. This film will match very well (although NOTHING MATCHES PERFECT) and you will be happy with the end result.
If you want true HEAT REJECTION though, consider our Nano-Ceramic film and have the whole vehicle tinted in it. You will be wrapped in Ceramic, the comfort level inside the vehicle will soar, and we can match the factory backs so that everything flows aesthetically too.
We even have a Ceramic that is nearly clear that will not alter the look of the rears but still protect.
Be sure to check out our "WOW Box" to confirm everything before you "pull the trigger" and buy Nano-Ceramic film.
