Why You Should Strongly Consider Getting Window Tint On Your Car

A car window tint involves adding a slightly colored hue on the car's existing windows. Doing such things makes a car more attractive and adds an element of privacy, (since you can see what's going on outside but the outside cannot see what's going with you). This is especially helpful in preventing a possible break-in due to a thief seeing something of value in the back or front seat of your car.

But there are also functional reasons why you should consider getting a car window tint. For example, a proper window tint helps provide protection for your car's interior upholstery. In fact, if you use a window tint, the life of your car's interior will be extended by 60 percent. This means your upholstery will look fresher and cooler for a longer period of time. And the reason this happens is because the window tint helps protect the interior against harmful ultraviolet rays that are emitted through sunlight. Tinting blocks around 99 percent of these rays, offering protection for both your car's interior and even yourself and your passengers. This is especially the case if you are on the road for hours.

Another functional purpose evident with a window tinting is increased window protection should the car get in a bad accident. The tinted windows are more effective at holding together glass, even if it has been shattered. Windows with no window tint would completely break down, while those that do have the window tint would stay up before totally collapsing; if they collapse. This could result in you or your passengers getting minimal if any bodily injury due to broken glass.

Lastly, tinting could help keep your car cooler, since it prevents sunlight from entering in. When you do not get windows tinted, the seats and the wheel can annoyingly hot, especially during warmer weather. Granted, there are some that try to solve this problem through special windshield shades, but the problem with these is that you have to remember to put them up each time you plan on not using your car. If you are in a rush, you may not want to spend an extra couple of minutes getting that together. Yet, with window tinting, nothing needs to be done ever. You can leave the car as soon as you can, and not have to worry about whether or not you'll have to sit in a hot seat when you get back.

To get your windows tinted, you can go to an auto specialty shop. Window tint shops are widely available and offer reasonable prices. But this doesn't mean you should necessarily go with the first shop you see. Shop around and ask a lot of questions before you actually make a commitment financially. You will want to know how their work looks as well as how many windows they have tinted throughout the course of their enterprise. You can also Google in the name of the window tint shop and see if there are any complaints with them on automobile message boards. There is also the option of checking what the Better Business Bureau says about them.

I just got some polarize sunglasses, and it has some kind of crazy reaction to the tint on my windows, and it has rainbow colors and stuff. It's a little distracting.

If you drive a lot in the sun, the UV can really do a number on your skin.

I went to a place, and they put on some tint that was a lot darker than I wanted. Not sure whether to try to get it changed or just to live with it.

Most cars come with tint, so you don't have to worry about it.

The privacy is what I'm really going for. If I want to keep something in the back seat, I don't have to worry about it if would be criminals can't see it to begin with.

Keeping the car from getting too hot also helps to protect your interior surfaces from getting dried out and cracked.
