Tint Tech is one of Calgary’s top window tinting shops. So, you might think that we’re going to take this opportunity, when talking about “how to get the best window tinting in Calgary,” to gloat about the best qualities and amazing service at Tint Tech.
Well, we’re not going to do that . . . well, not just yet anyway.
No, this blog will be devoted to helping you – as objectively as possible – think about the important factors to consider when shopping for window tinting products in Calgary, and in the surrounding region. Of course, we know that once you are familiar with the key considerations on finding the best window tinting film in Calgary, you will naturally see that Tint Tech is the way to go for all of your window tinting needs.
But before we get there, let’s get down into the nitty-gritty of what to watch for when window-tint shopping. There’s a lot to think about.
1. Where There’s a Warranty, There’s a Way
Almost every top-quality window tint film comes with a limited lifetime warranty. That said, you should make sure to find out the exact warranty length, and find out whether there are any requirements that come along with the film.
For example, certain types of auto window film require that it be professionally installed in order to take advantage of the warranty. Indeed, installing it yourself could automatically void the warranty. As another example, a perfectly good warranty will be considered null if the tint you install is too dark under the prevailing law.
In sum, warranties are great. But, be careful of the requirements surrounding them, so you don’t mistakenly do something that takes away your chance to enjoy the warranty you thought you had.
2. Enjoy the Install
The installation of automotive window tinting can be very specific. In fact, our specialists at Tint Tech receive a good deal of training to make sure that the installation of tint is done once, and done right.
Depending on the size of the project (number of windows, type of tint product), it could take between one hour and a several hours to complete the installation.
Don’t be surprised, however, if a professional installer wants to keep your car for a half a day, or longer, to make sure that the job is finished and the window film has completely dried.
3. The Tint of a Lifetime
One of the primary things you need to watch out for when finding the best window tinting in Calgary is how long the window film will last. Remember though, the life of your car will vary based upon the age of your car. If your vehicle has ‘been around the block a few times,’ then a “lifetime” for your vehicle could be considerably shorter than if you had a new vehicle.
That difference in longevity could help you save a little money when deciding on a tint product.
By the same token, you also may want to think about the amount you drive, and the conditions in which you typically drive. Driving in a region that gets a lot of sunlight means that you need a particularly strong auto tint film to avoid aging, fading, and discoloration. If, however, you keep your prized pocket rocket in the garage, and take it out only infrequently, then that will dictate the type of quality you will need.
In the aggregate, you can expect that most auto window film will last about 10 years. That could be enough for most vehicles.
