Window tinting isn’t something that anyone is surprised by anymore. From soccer moms’ minivans to mid-life crisis dudes’ sleek sports cars, privacy on the road is the norm these days. But most of us don’t ever think about window tinting — Los Angeles car dealers sell almost all of their cars with pre-tinted windows. So why waste any neurons on the idea in the first place? Simple: not all window films are the same. Some are higher quality and last longer, others don’t. Some are made for slightly different purposes — anti-UV window tintings might not be as dark as those intended specifically to insure privacy. Window films designed to ward off the Los Angeles heat may be too slivery and not as awesomely blackish-blue as the cut of your car’s jib would match. The basic reasons to get your windows tinted are pretty straightforward:
It just plain looks sweet
The best car tint in Los Angeles will be able to do all four without costing a significant percentage of your car’s net value. If you can’t get all four at once (most likely because of a color-matching issue between the tint and your paint job), consider that in most cases, privacy is less of an issue than you might think. It’s better to be comfortable during your commute and avoid skin cancer than it is to hide your profile from the guy driving next to you. The Critical Element The most important part about any window tinting isn’t on that list above. That’s because it’s not actually about the tinting itself — it’s about the company that does the tinting. You want your tinting done by a company that offers a quality guarantee. It’s easy for even the best window films to end up messy because of air bubbles or particulate caught under the film — and it’s not only ugly, but it shortens the lifespan of your window tinting. Los Angeles has plenty of high-quality operations that are willing to back up their work with a lifetime guarantee. Don’t be satisfied with anything less.
