Knowledge is power but it is often knowing the right questions to ask that is just as important as the answer that you get – especially when you have zero knowledge on a subject.
Keeping this in mind, there are 5 important questions that you should be asking an installer before getting your car windows tinted:
1. What Tint Percentage Is Legal In My State?
This question is not just to find out the state regulations for window tinting but also to provide you with more knowledge about your tint installer and their knowledge of their trade and the industry.
If they don’t know the answer, their knowledge of window tinting is probably limited. If they do know the answer, then they likely have greater expertise in their field. However, it is a good idea to look up the percentage and come armed with the answer in case the installer is just making a number up.
Of course, it is also important to ensure that your tints meet with the state-required regulations.
2. What Tint Materials Do You Use?
First and foremost, the answer to this question should be “high quality”.
It is of course also important to know what kind of tint material is being used. Higher quality tints are commonly made from extremely thin ceramic film.
There are a great number of different tint manufacturers – some providing high quality products and others lower quality. Do a little online research into the different brands to find out which manufacturers provide quality materials and check these against the brand the tint installer is using.
3. How Much Do You Charge For Tinting?
Generally, installers charge per tint or per set of tints. When it comes down to it, cost always plays an important role in choosing a specific brand or tint material and installer.
Keep a number in mind of how much you are willing to pay for your tints. Knock a few dollars of this amount to give you some room for negotiation. It can be very easy to be influenced by an eager salesperson who will push you to pay more than you wanted to. Setting a lower price will mean that you will probably end up paying what you intended even if you fold under pressure.
Also, keep in mind that you can also negotiate for a lower price.
4. What Happens If My Tints Break?
This is basically a nice way of asking the installer if they will be taking responsibility should your tints break. Even if you opt for the highest quality product, there is still a chance that something can go wrong.
You need to be sure that the installer will replace the tints if something does go wrong. A professional installer should provide you with a warranty for both the tints and the installation as part of their service.
5. What Cut And Install Technology Are You Using?
It doesn’t make much sense to choose a high-quality tint product just to have it poorly installed, even if it is under warranty.
Ask your installer about the type of technology they are using to accurately cut the tints to fit a specific car window precisely. Also, ask about the technique for adhering the tint to the window.
A good installation can make all the difference to your window tints.
