Here are some FAQ about window tinting. Please contact us if you have additional questions. We are always happy to provide information.


Q: Does the window tint go on the outside or inside of my car?
A: Window tint goes on the inside of the vehicle. We may cut the film on the outside of the window but after cleaning the glass we put it on the inside.

Q: What kind of warranty do I get?
A: For all legal installations we offer a manufacturers limited lifetime warranty. For as long as you own your car, if the film should go bad, ie: bubbles up, peels, gets blurry, our manufacturer will pay us to redo your film. If you are no longer in our area, call the 1-800 number on the back of your warranty card and they will send you to one of their authorized tinters to redo your vehicle. The only reason your warranty would not cover your film would be if you scratch the film. The film has a scratch resistant coating but it's not scratch proof.

Q: What is the legal limit for window tint in Florida?
A: Darkness of tint is measured by Visible Light Transmittance (VLT%). In Florida, this percentage refers to the percentage of visible light allowed in through the combination of film and the window.

Q: I have a medical condition that makes me very sensitive to the sun. Can I get dark window tint?
A: A medical exemption form is available from the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles website. You must fill out the form, have a doctor sign it, and send $6.65 with the form to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles. They will send you a certificate that you can carry in your vehicle.

Q: I have defroster lines on my back window. Will it mess up the tint?
A: No. The quality of the window tint is way better than it was in the past. The film is designed to absorb a lot of heat, way more than most defroster lines produce.

Q: How long will it take to tint my car?
A: It usually takes our technicians under two hours to tint most vehicles but we usually like a vehicle for at least half a day. That way the vehicle can dry in the sun before the customer gets their car back.
