1. What kind of tint are they using?
It seems so obvious, but I’m shocked at how often customers overlook -or don’t even care about – the kind of tint they’re getting on their car.
Mistakenly, they think that all tint its created equal. Well, they’re not.
If you’re getting a tint job that costs less than $200 for 7 windows, most likely the film is flimsy, doesn’t adhere properly, or it’s just a basic dye polyester material.
So you want to ask them what kind of tint they’re using.
Generally, carbon, ceramic, sputtered, and high quality dye polyester films are a safe bet.
Stick with brands like 3M, Solar Guard, Lumar and Suntek. (our favorite)
But most importantly?
You need to make sure the tint they’re using comes with, not just a warranty, but a ‘full coverage’ lifetime warranty against peels, bubbles, fading, or turning purple.
Sometimes warranties don’t cover everything I mentioned, so asking if it’s ‘full coverage’ is vital.
