Apr 23

You just got your windows tinted. Now you are all set to show your friends. Then you realize you can't roll them all the way down! You don't have to worry about this, it is a common concern at Cutting Edge Window Tinting.

This article will describe what happens to your window if it is not rolled down after tinting, and how you can fix it.

What's Window Tint?

Window tint is a thin coating that is applied to car windows. It is usually made from polyester, but it can also be made from other synthetic materials. Tinting your windows can help reduce glare and block UV rays. It also keeps your car cool in summer.

Tinting your windows involves applying the film to the glass's interior and heating it. The process can take from 30 minutes up to an hour depending on what tint you use and how large your windows are.

It is impossible to roll down windows after the tint has dried. The time required to cure a window tint depends on its type, but typically it takes 24-48 hours.

What Does Window Tinting Cost?

Window tinting prices can vary depending upon the type of film used, the size of the car and the number of windows being tinted. A standard-sized car will cost between $100 and $200.

The price of a premium film will go up if you want extra privacy tints or UV protection. For a premium tint job, expect to spend $200-$400.

Different Types of Window Tinting Films

There are many window tinting films available on the marketplace, each offering its own set of benefits. Most popular are carbon, ceramic, or metallic.

The cheapest option is metallic window film. It offers both heat and UV protection. Ceramic window film is more costly but has better heat resistance properties. Carbon window film is the most costly option, but it blocks out most heat. You can get the best results by choosing the right type of film to suit your budget and needs.

Window Tinting

Window tinting can be done in three steps. First, clean the window and prepare it for the film. The film is cut to the required size and then applied to the window. Finally, the film must be trimmed and sealed at the edges.

Window Tinting Benefits

Window tinting offers many benefits such as reducing glare and blocking ultraviolet rays. It also rejects heat. It can help to keep your car cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Tinted windows offer privacy and security, as it is difficult for other people to see into your car.
