You’ve likely seen a bad tint job before.
Perhaps the tint was bubbling or peeling off the car that passed you, giving it a less-than-desirable look. As is often the case, you get what you pay for — and auto window tinting is no exception.
DIY tint kits, which typically cost under $100 and less than professional tinting services, are available to buy online, but applying tint requires precision and skill.
“A lot of people lay film down properly on the glass and it looks good at first, but within a year it starts to come off the glass,” says Kyle Bushaw, owner of the Tint Factory in Madison, WI “And secondly, trying to get a hold of the film [can be difficult].”
Cost to tint car windows
There are a number of businesses on across the state of Wisconsin that offer tint services for just about any vehicle.
Most places typically charge $25 to $50 per window, but offers discounts for tinting the entire car, which typically takes about two hours for a standard car and longer for larger vehicles.
A basic tint for an average-sized car using standard film may cost $99 for the entire vehicle at some places. However, when looking at these costs are you really getting a professional? Most shops, especially in Madison are run by someone who is not a professional, who then turns around and hires more help that has no experience. Without referrals, without dealerships, without valuable customers giving them business, they turn to selling CHEAP TINT at CHEAP PRICES with POOR QUALITY and the finished look reflects this and bad things start to happen.
The proper way to tint a vehicle is right here at The Tint Factory. We are using higher quality tint which costs between $199 to $400 for the entire vehicle on average, depending on several factors. That’s the price for heat rejection tints and a quality install. The more heat rejection it has, the price goes up. Prices also vary depending on the type of vehicle, how many windows it has and whether dyed, metalized or ceramic tint is used.
We only offer tint that has high heat rejection, and isn’t going to fade. We then back up our products by the most experienced staff in the State.
Benefits of window tinting
It’s estimated that window tinting blocks up to 99 percent of UV rays and cools the car down by 60 percent or more, which protects people from the sun and your car’s interior from fading or cracking.
A lot of people have their cars tinted because they want to block the heat and some want it for privacy, too.
Another benefit to having a professional tint your car is reputable companies should know the law when it comes to local or state regulations regarding tint and how dark windows are allowed to be. States have different laws, and it’s important to check your state’s law before getting your windows tinted.
Professionals like Kyle and his staff at The Tint Factory also use higher quality film and guarantee the tint is applied evenly without any bubbles or debris. It’s a skilled labor that’s typically done with a heat gun that contours the film to the glass. There’s a chance someone with less experience can scratch the glass or damage the car’s paint.
“The benefits of having a professional installation done primarily is the warranty and secondarily the quality of the installation,” Bushaw says. “Most manufacturers offers a lifetime warranty against color change, bubbling and peeling with proof of purchase from an authorized installer.”
