The first step to a good tint job is to find a good tint shop, but it can be hard to find one as there are several options. You can get recommendations from friends, relatives or colleagues who have tinted cars. You can also scan the Yellow Pages or, to be more convenient, use an online quote service.
In any case, you need to consider a few things before selecting a car tint shop, like history of the business, the products and warranties they offer, customer service, and so on. Of course, none of these would be as important as actually seeing samples of their work.
After all, no matter how great everything about them sounds, if you don’t like how they tint cars, you won’t want to use them. That means you should go to the shop and take a look at some samples – in person.
Discovering The Truth About Wraps
Even a few minutes in a car tint shop is enough to give you an idea of the type of business in front of you. Once you get there, request them to show you a car that they have tinted. Check the rear window. The film should be in a single piece instead of cut or in strips. Professional tinters always do it this way. Should the car have any ‘frit’ edges, the film should extend far enough to include them as well.
The Essential Laws of Automobiles Explained
Observe the surroundings – is everything clean and organized? Are the tools and window films and tools laid out carefully and expertly? Outdoor work areas must be totally avoided, as window tinting should only be done indoor where it is dust-free.
Now move around and focus on the side window tint. The film has to covers the inner side of the window and be tight around the edges. Inspect the window film very, very closely and look for bubbles of air or spots where the film isn’t sitting tight against the window. These two indicate a poor tint job, and they are exactly what professional tint shops avoid at all costs. On the other hand, if the film looks streaky or discolored, worry not as it normally takes weeks for it to dry and clear up.
While you’re doing all these, keep in mind the type and color of the film you like to use. Don’t settle for something the dealer offers if they don’t have what you actually want. As mentioned, there are so many car tint shops today, and it’s all a matter of finding the right one for you. Of course, it will take time and patience, but you’ll thank yourself for being wise in your choice.
