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?
These are all very good questions that many of our clients wonder about after looking over our website.
We try to over deliver and provide our clients with as much information as possible to for them to make an informed decision. The problem is, sometimes, we end up confusing folks.
First, let us apologize to you if you are one of those who feels overwhelmed with all the information on our site. We will try to help with this page.
The answer here is going to be different for each individual. The best way to answer this question is to think about exactly what you are trying to accomplish by having your vehicle tinted.
For example - Ask yourself "Am I tinting my car solely for LOOKS?"
If so, you might want to consider our Lifetime Color Stable Film.
These films definitely LOOK great and they are what most "Tint Shops" in town are offering. However, even though they will last a very long time and will give you that cool traditional "LOOK" of tinted windows, they are very limited in rejecting heat - UNLESS YOU GO REALLY DARK, AND BREAK THE LAW.
Traditional Dyed Films are OLD Technology. They work strictly by absorbing a small percentage of heat (the same way dark clothing absorbs heat from the sun in the winter, keeping us warmer). As the vehicle passes through the air, the air pulls some of the heat away from the glass.
This is why you see so many extremely dark tinted vehicles on the road. The driver has chosen the oldest, least expensive and least effective film. In order to get it to block out a lot of heat, he HAD to go DARK.
Go with a good Color Stable Dyed Film and save some money!
This is especially true if you have a truck, and all you are trying to do is match up the fronts with the factory tint in the rears and comfort is not the reason for tinting
But, if you're like most people, you want to stop the sun!
In determining "What Film Is Best For Me" you should definitely consider comfort as well as "LOOKS".
Window films have come so far in recent years that the average driver can effective block out up to 98% of the Sun's Infra-red heat, while also protecting the occupants from Skin Cancer causing UV rays.
If you want cool "LOOKS" as well as HIGH HEAT REJECTION resulting in maximum comfort, Go with a NanoCarbon at least.
Both will blow your mind and change how you look at window tint and the reputable shops that install it.
