3 Window Tinting Myths Busted

If you are trying to decide whether you want to tint the windows in your vehicle, you probably have come across a lot of information on the Internet. Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions when it comes to car window tint installation. We would like to clear up three of these misunderstandings.

Myth #1 – My Aftermarket Car Window Tint Will Eventually Bubble

If by eventually you mean like 20 years from now, sure. But most people don’t keep a car even close to that long. If you see someone driving around with bubbles in their aftermarket tint job, that person either installed the tint personally or didn’t go to the right shop.

Myth #2 – Tinting Car Windows Is Merely for Cosmetic Purposes

Of course, window tinting does look really cool, but there are many practical benefits as well. For example, tinting your car’s windows can:

  • Keep the inside of the car cooler
  • Provide privacy
  • Add security since thieves can’t see in
  • Reduce fading of car interior
  • Improve A/C efficiency (since your air doesn’t have to fight the sun as hard)

Myth #3 – Tinted Windows Won’t Break

Unfortunately, window tint doesn’t make the glass any stronger. This misconception probably comes from the idea that the tint should hold glass shards together if the window does break. So there is the potential for some added protection as long as the sheet of tint holds when the window breaks. However, you shouldn’t rely on the tinted glass for extra safety in this way.
