POPULAR WINDOW TINT FAQS

  • What is the installation time?
  • Depending on the vehicle, average time for us is about 3 hours.
  • How do you cut the film?
  • We use a Roland cutting system that cuts out the film according to specific make model and year. We sometimes cut it out custom on certain vehicles depending on client preference.
  • How do you place the film?
  • Very common question believe it or not. The film is first shaped (shrank) on the outside then installed on the inside.
  • When can I wash my car?
  • It’s ok to wash your car right after the film is installed, but we ask that you do not clean inside of the windows for the first week. We clean them prior to installation as well.
  • When will the bubbles go away?
  • Depending on the temperature, and film type, curing time varies. Automotive films should be fully cured from 7-14 days. Commercial and residential films cure anywhere from 30-90 days depending on exposure and temperature. Most of the moisture will be visible from the inside looking out.
  • When can I roll down my windows?
  • We ask that you keep the windows rolled up for at least 24 hours while the film cures.
  • What do I use to clean the film?
  • We recommend using any glass cleaner that has no ammonia, or abrasives. A soft cotton cloth or diaper material is always recommended.
  • Is the window tint scratch proof?
  • There is no film that is scratch proof, but all of our films are scratch resistant and have patented scratch coats on them.
