Window Tint in the Winter
Thinking about getting your windows tinted but not sure if winter is the time of year to do it? We get this question a lot and yes, you can definitely get window tint in the winter weather.
Benefits of Window Tint (Year Round)
- It blocks the sun’s harmful UV rays. While UV exposure is the greatest in the summer, it isn’t nonexistent in the winter. UV rays reach Earth every day of the year, and snow can reflect 85 – 90% of those rays too.
- Tint reduces glare, helping with driver visibility. The sun’s glare can be a nuisance any time of year, but it’s often worse when it’s reflecting off snow. Window tint can drastically reduce glare, making it safer and easier for you to drive.
- Window tint protects the car’s interior. You already know it can keep our UV rays, but that also means it can keep your vehicle’s interior from fading. This will keep your interior looking newer for longer. No matter what time of year it is, you never want your interior to fade.
- It can deter theft. A burglar is less likely to break into your car if they can’t see what you’ve got inside. Window tint makes it harder to see into the vehicle from the outside, keeping your personal contents hidden and protected.
- Tint film strengthens the windows if the glass breaks. The film keeps the shards together, preventing shattering which can be even more dangerous.
- It provides a layer of insulation for the vehicle. This helps keep your vehicle’s interior cooler in the summer, and warmer in the winter. On cold mornings, window tint can actually help your vehicle warm up faster, so you can get on the road quicker.
- Window Tint adds flair and custom style to any ride. With 4 films to choose from and many darkness shades available, we can customize your tint to your ride. Go as light or as dark as you want to get that special look that’s just yours.
Understanding the Process
The window tinting process starts with us cleaning your windows inside and out. Then, the film is cut to the exact size of the car’s window. Our trained installers will place the film on the window and then work to remove any bubbles, wrinkles, or other imperfections, all while making sure it’s a perfect fit. After this, the film needs time to set and cure. For best results, we recommend avoiding rolling your windows up and down for a few days after install just to be safe.
Now you might be wondering how weather and time of year can affect the window tint install…
The spring brings rain, summer has high humidity, and the winter has ice and freezing temps, but if your install is done inside, away from the elements, it will turn out just fine! We bring your vehicle into our climate controlled garage, let it warm up to room temperature, and then install the film. This guarantees that no matter what time of year it is, or what the weather is like, you’ll be getting a professional window tint installation.
