Myths About Tinting Your Car Windows

 Are you thinking about getting your car or truck windows tinted and trying to separate fact from fiction? Capital Mobile Tint and Customs is here to educate you on the many benefits of tinting your vehicle’s windows, but first, let’s talk about a few common misconceptions:

Myth #1: Window Tinting is Easy to Do Yourself

Trying to apply tint yourself will often lead to bubbling. Not only that, but some people end up totally destroying their tints in the process. It’s just not easy for most of us because it’s not something we do every day. Trusting a professional to handle your tinting will ensure that it gets done right, and the work will be guaranteed.

Myth #2: Tinted Windows Will Eventually Bubble Up

See myth number one. Tinting is more likely to bubble when you do it yourself. Another cause of bubbling is using cheap materials. Going through a reputable company will ensure that you are getting a quality product. Limo tint, ceramic tint, and carbon XP are examples of some high-quality options available nowadays.

Myth #3: Window Tinting is Just for Looks

We all know that tinted windows look cool, but did you know that tinted windows also feel cool? Tints block up to 56% of the sun’s heat. No more getting into a ridiculously hot car that takes forever to cool down. Glare reduction is yet another benefit because it minimizes that blinding affect when you’re facing toward the sunset. And, of course, tints help preserve your vehicle’s interior.

Myth #4: Window Tinting Will Decrease the Value of Your Vehicle

Although some buyers may not like tinted windows, the converse is also true. Many buyers actually prefer them. Anything is possible, but for the majority of vehicles, tints do not decrease the value. Often, buyers will think of tinted windows as an upgrade that they don’t have to get done themselves. When it comes time to sell, chances are good that you’ll find a buyer who loves tinted windows as much as you do.

Myth #5: Tinted Windows Are Illegal

There is no blanket law against tinting windows. But rather, regulations vary from state to state. For example, in Nevada, up to 35% tint darkness is allowed. Any auto tinting company will be aware of local tint laws, so that’s yet another reason to have your tinting done professionally.

Benefits of Window Tinting

  • Blocks harmful UV rays
  • Helps keep upholstery from fading
  • Helps with solar heat rejection, keeping your car cooler
  • Increases Privacy and Security–Thieves don’t notice items left in your car
  • Looks awesome!

As you can see, window tinting has many benefits. It blocks up to 99% of harmful UV rays and can keep your upholstery from fading. Although getting your windows tinted won’t make them unbreakable (another common myth,) it will give you some much-needed privacy, make your ride look custom, and keep your interior cool.
