With the nice weather upon us, clients of Mobile Edge in Lehighton are starting to think about our automotive window tint services. Choosing a facility to tint your car or truck windows isn’t an easy task. While many people shop on price alone, getting genuine value for your dollar requires some research. Let’s look at four reasons why you might not want to trust your window tint to the lowest bidder.
Window Tint Film Quality
There are dozens of different window film manufacturers, each with several series of films and different shades. Optical transparency of the polyester base layer, the quality and strength of the adhesive and the type of tint used in the manufacturing process are just a few criteria that determine the quality of a window film.
Premium films use adhesives that resist bubbling and peeling. This ensures the tint remains adhered to the glass. Inexpensive films are prone to bubbling, wrinkling and peeling that makes it difficult to see through the window.
Films use many different materials to block light, UV and IR energy. These include dyed, metallic, carbon, ceramic and nano-technology construction. Each component has different benefits, while some have drawbacks. A reputable window tint installer will explain what each type of film offers during the consultation process.
Tinting your car or truck requires thorough cleaning of your windows. Even the smallest speck of dust or dirt caught between the tint and the glass can result in an unsightly bubble. Preparing a window for tint takes time. Many facilities that offer inexpensive tinting rush the cleaning process.
An important part of our vehicle preparation process here at Mobile Edge includes protecting your vehicle. We use seat covers to keep your car or truck clean. We protect door edges with shipping or masking tape to ensure that your paint won’t be scuffed or scratched as went get in and out of your vehicle. We take care to protect the interior of your vehicle from water damage when we spray the windows with slip agent during the installation process. Our goal is to ensure that your vehicle leaves our facility in pristine condition.
Window Film Warranty
Premium window films are backed by an extended manufacturers warranty to protect against peeling, bubbling, fading and turning purple. Depending on the film you choose, the warranty may vary from one year for a dyed film to a Limited Lifetime warranty our premium nano-technology films. If you plan on keeping your vehicle for more than a couple years, choosing a high-quality window film is a wise investment. Our qualification process helps to ensure you get the right solution for your application.
Proper Installation Facility
When you are shopping for automotive window tint, ask to see their installation facility. Working in a clean environment dramatically reduces the chance of contaminants getting caught under the window film. We see many facilities that tint outdoors. Working outdoors is the ultimate sin when tinting windows and can allow dust, pollen or dirt to contaminate the window surface.
