Tinting Benefits

Window tinting adds style and beauty to your vehicle. And is one of the cheapest ways to change the appearance of your car.

Blocks UV Rays
Ultraviolet rays crack and fade your vehicles interior, as well as harming your skin.

What thieves cannot see they usually will leave alone.

Window film holds glass together in the event of breakage, preventing flying shards.

Reduces Glare
The suns glare can make it difficult to see at times. Tinting the windows can help this.

Reduces Heat
During summer months window tint blocks a large percentage of the suns rays, making your air conditioner much more efficient.

Retains Heat
During winter months window film holds heat inside the vehicle making it more comfortable for passengers.

Lowers Energy Costs
By allowing you to turn your air conditioner down, window tint saves you gasoline.



There are 2 primary types of window film. They are Metalized and Non-Metalized. Metalized films have a metallic "sheen" to them. Some are very slight, while others are more noticeable. They tend to hold out a lot more heat and UV (ultraviolet light which is what cracks and fades upholstery, dashboards, etc...) because they reflect the suns rays back out of the vehicle. Non-Metalized films also hold out heat, and UV, but they have no reflective "sheen", and have a more "flat" look to them.

When you come in for your appointment, you will be shown all the different types, and degrees of tinting. We will explain all the laws, and make recommendations based on the color of your vehicle, and years of experience in what looks best on certain vehicles. Pictured below are some of the most popular colors, but we do carry other films (bronze, green, etc...)

Smoke Grey (Non-Metalized)

Platinum (Metalized)

Graphite High Performance (Metalized)

Charcoal High Performance (Metalized)

Window film comes in 4 basic degrees as represented above. They are, from left to right, 50%, 35%, 20%, and 5%. Each state has their own set of laws regarding window film, as to what can be tinted, and how dark. VA state law is 50% on the front doors (all vehicles), and 35% around the back area (passenger cars), Trucks, Vans, and SUV's are allowed anything they want in the rear area.

* Window tinting laws throughout the country are constantly changing, therefore it is suggested that this link to the IWFA's (International Window Film Association) window tint law chart be consulted.

Commercial / Residential
Commercial and residential glass pricing is based on the square footage of the job. It can range considerably depending on the situation. Some jobs have obstacles that inhibit access to the glass, and others may require visitor passes, or security screenings. All of things can effect the overall price of a job due to the time, and materials needed. We ask that you call for details and prices.
Film Removal
Removal of old window film is in most cases a long and tedious task. Every so often you will come across a vehicle that the film comes off relatively clean. Leaving little to none of the old glue on the glass. In other cases the film will be much harder to remove, particularly on the rear glass that has defroster/antenna lines on it. Therefore the prices can vary, but they generally will fall between $39.00 for film that is not too bad to remove, and $99.00 for harder more time consuming removals. Actual prices are given once we see the vehicle, and determine how hard it is going to be. While no tint shop anywhere can guarantee that the defroster/antenna lines will not be damaged when removing old film, about 90% of the time they will survive the process unharmed.

Film Care

Caring for new window film
  • Rolling windows down: We recommend that you leave your windows up for 48 hours (2 days) after they are tinted. This will allow the film time to adhere to the glass so it will not peel when it is finally rolled down.
  • Drying time: For the first few days after your windows are tinted they will be cloudy, hazy, and you may see little water pockets forming in the tint. This is normal! When windows are tinted, the squeegee can only remove a certain amount of the water from between the film, and the glass. As the film dries, the remaining water will form little pockets. These will simply evaporate and go away by themselves. The amount of time before your new tint will be totally dry is determined by the amount of sunlight it gets. If it's cloudy and overcast outside, it will take longer, if it's hot and sunny, then the film dries very quickly.
  • Cleaning: After your windows are tinted, you need to wait a couple of days to clean them. Basically, you do not want to risk pulling the tint loose, before it has a chance to dry. Once your vehicle has been tinted the windows will have been lightly wiped down, but will probably need a proper cleaning. A soft paper towel and any non-ammonia cleaner (do not use the blue "Windex with ammonia D", or any blue colored cleaners because they usually have ammonia in them). You can use: Vinegar Windex (Green), or any of the citrus Windex's,. There are other cleaners made specifically for tinted windows such as Eagle One's 20/20. which are very good. In addition you can use soap and water, vinegar and water, or really anything without ammonia or abrasives.
Things to know
  • Seat belt chips: Care should be used when exiting the car, and removing the seat belt. In some cars the seat belt will "snap" into the glass and cause little chips in the window film. This is not covered in the warranty!
  • Dot Matrix Issues: Most modern vehicles have a black ceramic dotted edge around them, as well as at the top of the rear window. Window film as a rule does not stick to this. the dots hold the film away from from the glass causing a "whitish" look, after the film has dried, you can simply take a finger and run around the edge on the inside. Most of the time this will press the air out. At the top of the rear glass the dots are much thicker, and in most cases the window film will be cut back off of these. This is to make sure the film has actual glass to stick to, rather than ceramic. On some vehicles this may be bothersome to have the top couple inches not tinted. There is a way to black the area out after the film has totally dried. Give us a call for details.
  • Scratches in the glass and/or film: Vehicles older than a year or so will generally have scratches that run up and down on the windows that roll down. This is caused by little pieces of sand and debris that get lodged in between the outside gasket, and the glass. The window going up, and down, creates tiny scratches that most people never even notice are there. Until they have window film installed on the inside. Installing tint behind these surface scratches makes them stand out more than they did before the vehicle was tinted. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done about them. They are simply the effects of time on the vehicle. In some cases (especially vehicles that frequent sandy, or muddy conditions) these grains of sand/dirt will become lodged between the inside gasket and the film, and cause scratches in it. We do not cover this sort of thing in the warranty. Simply because, short of replacing the gasket with a new/clean one, there is no way to cause it from happening again, and again. Keep in mind that this same sand scratches the glass itself, so it will certainly scratch window film. If you have this problem, and replace the gasket(s), we will generally replace the tint free of charge the first time.
