Why You Should Not Be Tinting Your Own Windows

It is the pandemic season, and you are stuck at home. You may think of doing some DIY to pass your time, but if you are thinking about tinting your own windows, think no further! The chances of it backfiring are almost certain. Air bubbles will form; there will be peeling, flaking and damage to your car’s image. If you are still adamant and researching on how to DIY auto tinting, do have a read on what to expect if you continue with your endeavor.

1. The damage it brings to your windows

One of the most obvious reasons to let professionals tint your car windows is that you can seriously and permanently damage the window with self-application. The damage usually occurs when too much pressure is applied and/or during the removal and re-do process. Car owners will often accidentally scratch, etch, crack, break, or damage their windows in the process. In the end, you may need to replace your damaged windows at your own expense.

2. Risking a car accident

Your car windows are key safety features for the driver and passengers. Any visual obstruction, such as air bubbles or scratches, due to misapplied film or a damaged window increases the odds of getting in a car accident. It is highly not recommended to tint your windows yourself as it could lead to fatal results not only for you, but for people around you as well.

3. Your car value (along with your car image) will drop 

Professionally applied window tint can enhance your car’s aesthetics, which elevates its value – especially if you have chosen a high-quality window tint. The reverse is also true.

Horrible and obviously DIY window tint jobs can result in bubbling, peeling, or changing colors. Instead of giving it a sleek and classy look, it will be ugly and distracting, and not to mention that it will devalue your car in the process.  

4. You Are Not A Trained To Do It

Professional window film installers are trained and experienced in applying window tints. They have an incredible level of patience, know, and follow careful and methodical instructions and processes, and put great attention to detail. No matter how meticulous you may be, the bottom line is that a professional can do the job faster, better and safer, while doing it yourself can risk the job going poorly.
