We love the look of a hot ride. Usually, dark tinted windows are a part of that vision. Plus, as you can see from many of the other blogs on our site, auto window tint is not just for good looks. Auto tinting is good for your health, your comfort, and your wallet.

We here at Tint Tech, the best car window tint shop in Calgary, fully understand.

- What Kind of Benefits, and What Kind of Performance Am I Looking For?
The first thing you need to consider is why you are getting your car windows tinted. Be honest. Are you doing it just because you want the car to look great, just pure aesthetics? That is a perfectly legitimate desire. Of course, you may be in the market for auto window tint because you want UV protection, heat reduction, or glare reduction – or all of the above.
The old adage “you get what you pay for” really applies here. There are different types of window tint to match the different reasons you have for tinting your car. If you are just going for looks, then you can actually save money by getting a less expensive tint, one that is not as highly engineered for other purposes. On the other hand, you can get an increased level of quality and performance if you are looking for window film that has UV protection, infrared protection, and heat reduction qualities. So, there is a window film that suits your specific needs.
- What is the Experience of the Window Tint Installer?
Without question, you will want the best car window tint job done right the first time. So, the quality of your tint installer is key.
Indeed, the experience of your tint installer will make all the difference in the end result. A professional, seasoned window tint installer can take even medium quality tint and make it look great with precision installation. By the same token, an inexperienced installer can take the finest window tint film and make the tint job not worthy of your car because of shortcuts and flaws in the install.
You can get a better guarantee on the end result of your window tint by confirming the installer company’s experience level. It is also appropriate to inquire as to whether the installer has certain certifications, and to ask to see examples of their work.
- Are There Any Warranties I Can Rely On?
In a perfect world, everything would work as it should. But, unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world. Sometimes a product does not turn out the way we expect it to, or it has a flaw that is not indicative of the product overall. That is when the “rubber meets the road,” so to speak, on how good the warranty is on the window film product that was installed, and how much the installer will back up his or her work.
With the best car window tint installers, you should receive a warranty card that is connected to the product that was installed on your windows. If an installer is not ready to provide you with that type of warranty card or other assurances, then you may want to look elsewhere.
- What About Auto Window Tinting Prices?
Of course, most things come down to money. Auto window tinting prices vary, as you would expect. Yet, you definitely need to have the price conversation with a window tint shop to be able to weigh all the pros and cons.
Among basic auto window tinting prices, for a compact car, using standard window film, you might find a $99 price for the entire car. The higher quality tints, however, might have auto window tinting prices that range from $199 to $399 for the whole car. A big price driver is the amount of heat reduction that a window film provides.
