What Factors Should You Consider When Selecting Auto Window Tint?

There are numerous benefits associated with tinting your auto windows. Tinting your windows can help to keep your car cooler in the summer months, can help reduce sunlight glare, can help to prevent thieves from seeing into your vehicle and can help to reduce fading and heat damage to the interior of your car caused by the sun’s heat. Both an autobody repair shop and window tinting shop can tint your windows, but you must first select the type of tint you want installed. Here are a few of the factors that you should consider when selecting auto window tint. 

The Type of Auto Tint

One of the factors that you need to consider when you are selecting auto window tint is the type of auto tint. Many people do not realize that there are different types of materials that can be used to tint your windows. Some of the most common materials for tinting automobile windows includes dyed window tint, metalized window tint, hybrid window tint, ceramic tint, and carbon tinting film. Each type of window tinting materials has its own unique benefits, so it is important to research the various options when deciding which one may be ideal for your automobile. 

The Features of the Auto Tint

Another important factor to consider as you go about selecting auto tint for your vehicle are the features of the specific auto tint you are looking at. Various types of auto tint have different features, including the color of the tint, the clarity of the tint, the solar control of the tint and the heat control of the tint. As you consider these features, also keep in mind any legal rules and laws in regards to window tint in the state that you reside in. California has rules that regulate how much light the tint must allow in. The percentage of light that is allowed in varies based on where the tint will be applied, such as the windshield, auto windows or back windows. 

The Lifespan and Warranty of the Window Tint

The last factor that you need to consider as you select window tint for your vehicle is the estimated lifespan of the window tint and any warranty that the window tint may come with. The brand of window tint can affect the estimated lifespan, as well as the length of the warranty that is offered with the tint. A knowledgeable installer can explain the lifespan of various window tints to you based on the driving and weather conditions where you frequently drive.
