The first step to getting a good tint job is to use a good tint shop, but it can be a feat to find one, considering there are tons of options. You can get recommendations from friends, relatives or colleagues who have tinted cars. You can check the Yellow Pages too or use an online quote service for convenience.
In any case, you need to consider a few things before selecting a car tint shop, like history of the business, the products and warranties they offer, customer service, and so on. But of course, none would be so important as being able to inspect samples of their actual work.
After all, even if they sound so great, you won’t use them if you’re not impressed with their work. That means you’ll have to visit the shop and personally take a look at a few cars they’ve tinted.
What Do You Know About Wraps
A few quick minutes in a car tint shop is typically enough to give you some vibes on the type of business you’re dealing with. When you get there, ask them to show you a car they have already been tinted. Inspect the rear window. The film should be in a single piece instead of cut or in strips. Professional tinters always do it this way. If the car has any ‘frit’ edges, check closely to make sure that the film extends far enough to include them too.

Look all around you – everything should be clean and organized. Are the tools and window films and tools laid out carefully and expertly? Outdoor work areas must avoided at all costs because window tinting should be done in an indoor area that is free of dust.
Now move around and focus on the side window tint. The film should cover the window’s inside and it should be tight on the edges. Look at the window film very, very closely and see if there are air bubbles or any parts that aren’t very tight against the window. These two are signs of a lazy tint job, and they are exact what good tint shops avoid by all means. On the other hand, if you notice that the film is a little discolored or streaky, don’t worry as it does take weeks to fully dry a film and clear it up.
While you’re doing all these, keep in mind the type and color of the film you like to use. Don’t settle for something the dealer offers if they don’t have what you actually want. As mentioned earlier, there’s a lot of car tint shops these days, and it’s just an issue of finding the right one. Certainly, it will take some patience and time, but you’ll thank yourself for not rushing into a decision.
