How much to tint car windows?
Price is almost always a consideration, so let’s start here. Window tints are not prohibitively expensive, even for higher-end brands like the one we use at Tintix. Average prices range from $100 – $400 to tint your whole car. But be honest with yourself and your budget before you purchase. If you’re only willing to spend $100 or less for a full car window tint, you may be better off spending that money elsewhere (like on 100 burgers at dollar burger night). Lower end tints are cheap — but they look cheap too, which totally defeats the purpose.
Here at Tintix we have special going on at $99 for car windows tint. Comes with lifetime warranty!
How long will my car’s window tint last?
The lifetime of window films are dependent on many factors including product type and quality, the climate, and the amount of direct sunlight your car is exposed to. Generally, most professionally installed automotive films are designed to last much longer than the typical owner will keep the vehicle; many films will perform well past 10 years.
If you buy tint without a warranty, and they start to peel and crack the first time a seagull decides to use your car as a toilet, you’re not going to be happy. And god forbid a pelican takes aim at your windshield. Those things are savage. Many window tint brands offer a warranty at no extra cost. Buying warrantied tints not only covers you for faulty materials, it gives you confidence that the tints you’re buying are high-quality. After all, businesses don’t like losing money. If they offer a warranty, like us (Lifetime Warranty!!) that likely means they are confident in their product – and you can be too.
Most quality products come with a limited lifetime warranty. However, you should confirm the exact warranty length and stipulations prior to purchasing any film. Also, make sure you receive a manufacturer’s warranty that is completely filled out by your installer (We give that at Tintix), so you’re covered even if by chance your installer ever goes out of business.
It is important that you abide by all state and local tint laws. Most warranties will be void if your film installation is illegal. The local installing dealer should know all current tint laws that apply to you.
What level of technology does the tint shop use?
Technology is amazing these days. You can press a button on your phone and 30 minutes later, someone shows up at your door to bring you something — food, beer, a ride to the party. Car Window tint has technology too. Not “I can post to Instagram by tapping my windshield” technology (yet), but important technology nonetheless. Some tint offers UV protection that help make your car literally cool, so you can ease up on the gas-guzzling air conditioner. Some offer precision machine-cutting to ensure your tint is perfectly placed on your car windows. And some even offer protection from glass shattering during an attempted theft, or from those rotten neighborhood teenagers pelting your car with a rock.
Here at Tintix, We use a technology-based, 100% precision-cut system, enabling us to install your tint fast and with total accuracy, as well as produce amazing custom tint designs!
How long does it take to tint car windows?
Depending upon how many windows you are tinting, car window tints usually only take 1 – 3 hours to install. The time frame also depends on the kind of car you are tinting. If you cannot wait couple of hours, ask if you can drop the vehicle off and return later, or the following day.

How many windows are you going to tint?
You should ask yourself which windows you’d like to get tinted. Do you want the back window and windshield tinted, too? Or do you just want the rear windows tinted? Once you know which ones you’re going to tint, you can determine how much the process will cost you. Some shops may offer a bundle deal if you decide to get all the windows as well as the windshield done at once.
Will there be gaps at the top of Roll-Down windows?
Unlike Tintix, some shops don’t apply tint at the very top of the automatic windows your cars carry. The reason is fairly simple; when you roll down these windows, it applies friction to the top, and such force can compromise your tint’s
integrity. Making sure the tint covers the whole window requires a lot more finesse.
Ask if a shop follows this policy; some will, for an extra cost, go all the way up on the window. You can decide if you prefer that or if you will accept tinting with that tiny gap.
