Window Tinting in Crystal City

Window tinting in Crystal City should always be done by professionals.  You can really mess up laying out your own film and your vehicle's appearance and performance will suffer as a result.  Letting professionals do the job may cost a bit more, but it's less expensive than doing it wrong and paying for it twice.  Tinting your windows with an aftermarket product is a great way to increase the value of the car and how much enjoyment you get out of it.

Why people tint vehicle windows

Aftermarket window tinting serves a lot of purposes.  It provides privacy for drivers that don't want to be seen on the roadways.  You can know that people aren't looking at you and examining your car for valuables that they can steal.  Your privacy will be increased with a good window tint.

UV protection is the second reason.  The interior of a vehicle will last much longer with window tinting because of the reduction in UV rays.  Leather and fabric interiors last far longer without the sun beating down on them.

A third reason is heat reduction.  You can cut up to 70% of the heat in your car with a good window tinting.  In a hot St. Louis summer that can make all the difference between a stifling hot car and a comfortable ride.

In an accident, the fourth reason is that the adhesive of the tint helps keep the glass together.  Fewer shards of sharp glass flying around are always safer.


Why You Should Care About Window Tinting

Tinting windows may or may not help with the resale of a vehicle. It depends on if the tint was done early enough in the ownership of the car to protect the interior, which is a primary consideration for someone looking to purchase a used vehicle. It also depends on if the tint is legal in the state that the purchaser lives in. Another consideration was the method used to tint the windows. If a DIY tint has lots of bubbles or looks shoddy, it’s not going to be perceived as an asset. Lastly, it comes down to personal preference of the buyer. While the current owner of the vehicle might have loved the aftermarket tint, a prospective buyer might not. It is important to note that neither Kelley Blue Book or Edmunds list window tint in their estimates of car sale values.
