5 Signs That You Need New Window Tint For Your Car

By improving privacy, lowering the interior temperature, and shielding the interior of your car from the sun’s damaging UV rays, having your car’s windows tinted can help make driving more pleasurable. The window tint will ultimately need to be replaced since, like many other parts of your car, it will eventually become damaged from use and wear. However, how will you know when it’s time to tint your car’s windows once more?


Several variables, including sunlight exposure, environmental conditions, the quality of the tint used, and how the tinting was maintained, will all affect how long window tinting lasts, thus there isn’t a set rule as to how long it will last. Fortunately, when your car’s tint has to be updated, it will probably be noticeable because it will start to exhibit indications of aging. Here are just a few of the warning signals that the window tint on your car needs to be replaced.



The existence of air bubbles and bulges between the glass and the tint film on your car is one of the most obvious symptoms that it needs to have its tint updated. Bubbling, which can emerge months or even days after installation, is frequently a sign that low-quality film was employed. If the windows are not well cleaned before installing the tint, grease, dust, and other pollutants may get caught between the glass and the tint film, generating air pockets that will enlarge when the tint is exposed to the sun. This can also result in the formation of these bubbles.


Sadly, in addition to being unsightly, these bubbles can seriously impair the effectiveness of your tint job, and you will probably start to notice further issues soon after the bubbles emerge. When bubbles start to emerge, you should then make plans to have your car’s tinting replaced as soon as feasible. If your tint job is quite recent, you might want to find out if the installation was covered by a warranty. In either case, it’s crucial to choose a high-quality film for your next tint job, and you should also find out how the installer prepares the window’s surface.



If you’ve observed that the color of your car’s tint has started to change, it is a clear indication that it needs to be replaced soon because it is getting older. Even the greatest tints will eventually fade with time and frequent sun exposure, frequently turning dark gray tints a light shade of purple. Your windows may start to develop dark and light spots as a result of this fading, which will probably happen gradually and may even proceed at an uneven rate. This fading is a blatant sign that the tint film in your automobile has to be updated right away if you want to continue protecting the interior of your car. If you felt your tint did not last very long, keep in mind that superior tints typically hold their color better over time.



If your window tinting has started to peel, this is another telltale sign that it needs to be replaced. It is not unusual for tint film to start ripping away from the window after years of being subjected to heat and the sun’s damaging UV rays; this is typically due to the film’s adhesive beginning to degrade. As window tint ages, you could notice that the tint slowly starts to peel away at the corners and edges where it formerly flushed against the surface of your window.


You might also hear screeching sounds when rolling down your windows as the tint starts to peel more; in fact, sliding down your windows could speed up the peeling. You must immediately have your tint professionally removed and replaced at this time. While it may be tempting to remove the tint on your own to save money, this method is more difficult than it may seem, and you risk causing more damage than good. Have the outdated tinting professionally removed to save time, money, and stress.



The ability of window tint to prevent the sun’s harmful UV rays helps keep the interior of your car cooler during the summer, which is one of the main advantages of having tinted windows. Nevertheless, after years of exposure to the sun, you might discover that your window tint is no longer as effective at keeping out the summer heat. Your tint film may have deteriorated and should be replaced if you’ve observed that your car feels substantially hotter inside than usual when you first get in it or that your air conditioning no longer seems to keep you cool. Naturally, if there are no obvious visual issues with your tinting, you may want to start by having your car’s AC checked to make sure it is operating properly. If that is not the problem, you should probably think about getting your windows re-tinted.



If you have seen sun damage on the interior of your automobile, it is perhaps the clearest indication that it needs to be re-tinted. One of the main purposes of window tinting is to shield the interior of your automobile from the sun’s UV radiation. Your car’s upholstery would probably deteriorate without window tinting, and on really hot days, plastic fittings might even fracture. It’s time to have your window tinting replaced if you have tinted windows and you continue to notice minute indicators of inside damage to your car. This is a sign that your car’s tint film has degraded and is no longer shielding it from the sun.


It’s critical to watch out for warning indications that it’s time to change the window tinting on your automobile to protect it from the sun’s damaging UV rays. Please feel free to get in touch with us if the tinting on your car has started to deteriorate and ask about having it replaced.
