As the owners and the installers, we take great pride in all of our window tinting installations. So, our installations take a little longer then other shops that typically “turn and burn”. We take our time to guarantee the best possible installation for each of our clients, no matter what type of car you drive. Our installations are handcrafted to each window to fit precisely, we do not use patterns. We heat form every back window and windshield to ensure a proper fit and install it seamlessly. We finish all door windows with a shaved beveled edge which gives the appearance of factory tinted windows. In order to help prevent contamination, all door windows with felted gaskets are taped to ensure clean “felt free” installations.

The benefits of automotive window tinting…
Blocks UV Rays
Ultra Violet rays from the sun can cause serious damage to the skin. These same rays increase fading on your vehicles interior, such as, cloth or leather seats, dashboards, door panels, and carpeting. By installing Window Film you help to reduce the level of interior fading and protect your skin by blocking up to 99.9% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. As a result, you protect yourself while prolonging the life of your vehicle’s interior.
Of course a vehicle can get extremely hot when it sits in the sun for an extended period of time. The solar control properties found in window film can greatly reduce the level of heat gain inside of a vehicle, as a result, providing more comfort for the driver and passengers. Additionally, this heat reduction will lead to better fuel efficiency because car owners can rely less on air conditioning to provide the comfort needed during hot summer months.
The presence of glare while driving is not only a distraction, but can be dangerous as well. Window Tinting does an excellent job at minimizing the level of annoying glare entering a car window. Therefore, helping to improve vision and safety preventing added strain on the eyes.
Window Film adds a degree of shatter resistance when applied to the glass in your vehicle. Due to a very aggressive adhesive, window film helps to hold the pieces of broken glass together if the vehicle were to be in a collision. Most of all, tinted windows help to decrease visibility of your valuables located inside the car deterring the chance of a break-in.
In addition to its other benefits, applying window film to your vehicle increases its visual appeal. Window Tinting gives your vehicle a sharp, clean appearance on the exterior. Plus helps to protect the interior upholstery, keeping your vehicle looking great inside and out for many years to come.
