A little bit of research goes a long way. When it comes to making a big purchase, it is always recommended to know your purchase. I think we all can settle on one thing. Cars are a big purchase. So before you invest in one, know where you are putting your money.
There is a ton of other supplies and parts that come with owning and maintaining a car. So along with the high-in stereo system you should consider installing car window tints on the interior of your car. If you do not know what it is, then to keep it short, it is a thin film of tint which is installed on all the windows and windshield of the car.
It has a number of benefits including shatter proof properties provided you invest in some high quality tint. Other than that, it helps keep your car warm during winters and cooler during the summers. It can also help protect your car from damage due to sitting under the sun too long.
The material used in manufacturing car tints is polyester. It is durable and also it doesn’t make the screen hazy in anyway, so the clarity of the windows and windshield is uncompromised.
There are a bunch of tints available on the market. You just need to know the difference between them and then pick out whichever fits your budget and needs perfectly.
1. Dyed film – if you want to give your ride the sleek sharp black look, then this is what you are looking for. It is dyed which is why it is not the most lasting quality available on the market. It works well with reducing the sun in your face but not so well with heat reduction.
2. Carbon film – this variety is better quality that dyed film and look pretty much just like it. It reduces infrared by an astonishing 40 percent and it is more long-term than its fellow dyed film kind.
3. Crystalline film – it is much more expensive than any other kind of car tint. The thickness is less than that of your regular paper but that does not affect its efficiency in any way. It reduces heat gain by 60 percent and infrared by 97 percent. The clarity of the screen is another feature to marvel upon. Needless to say, you have to pay good money for what is known as the best tint for cars.
4. Ceramic tint – if you want the hip look but without any kind of compromise of UV and heat reduction, then this is also a great choice. It has other benefits too that you can expect from installing car tint but the downside being that this kind of tint fades quicker than you would like.
Tinted windows have a good number of advantages and the costs incurred in installing the tint is only a small price to pay. Car tints usually last for five years but if the quality of your tint is high, then you can also expect it to last 10 years. Of course, the case of accidents and impacts being an exception.
Installing car tint is also an expense of a sort. If you go to a regular tint shop, then you might get a deal nearing a $100 but if you go to high-end place that provides quality service then you can expect a bill nearing $400 or so. But keep in mind that this is a one-off cost in the span of 5 to 10 years.
With that said, you should ask around what kind of tint people recommend before you make your mind and reap the benefits soon.
