Is it possible for a tint shop to produce a perfect window tint installation? Some people think so or even demand it. But, is such a thing even possible?
Some have asked... "Can I get a ticket for window tint that I have done in Indiana when I travel into other states that have stricter laws on window tint?"
This is a concern of some who do a lot of traveling between home and other states.
Could you get a ticket? Doubtful. Why? It's because of something called the "Interstate Law".
By tinting your vehicle according to the Indiana state law you are LEGAL for INDIANA and thus governed by INDIANA law. Traveling through another state is not supposed to affect the legality.
Can an over zealous cop write you a ticket? Sure. Will he? Doubtful
If this were an issue. NO ONE would tint their cars because as soon as they crossed the state line, troopers would be waiting to write tickets.
In the 30 years we have been in business, this has NOT been an issue. We have NEVER had one client tagged out of state because their INDIANA LEGAL tint was not legal in (fill in your choice of state here).
Hope that answers your question!
"Keep Calm and Tint On"
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.
