Too many people are under the impression that window tinting is suitable for a DIY job. This could be a big mistake. While you may know some people who have successfully tinted a car’s windows on their own, residential window tinting is a whole other story that requires far more expertise. If you’re in the Maryland, Virginia, or Washington DC areas, you can count on the folks at American Solar Tinting for professional window tinting. Here is why residential window tinting should be left in the hands of professionals.
Perfectly and Professionally Cut
One of the telltale signs of someone who opted for DIY instead of professional window tinting is the presence of gaps between the edges of the films and the windows. It’s easy for someone who doesn’t have years of experience cutting films to make this mistake. Professional window tinting companies will use digital technology to ensure that it is cut precisely to the shape of your window.
Another common window tinting mistake is allowing bubbles to form under the film. You may notice these shortly after application. If these bubbles don’t go away in a week or two, this results from an error in application that professionals would have avoided.
If you notice that the bubbles under your window film aren’t going away, then in all likelihood the surface was not properly cleaned prior to application.
Long-Lasting and Effective Films
American Solar Tinting specializes in the installation of some of the highest quality window films in the Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC areas. People who choose to DIY their residential window tinting often don’t have easy access to films of the quality that we stock here.
High quality, professional window tinting will last longer than a DIY job. More than that, it will be more effective. Not all window films are equal. Ours will block UV light, and you’ll notice instant benefits. Say goodbye to sun damage on your artwork and furniture, or an obnoxious glare on your television screens. Over time, you can expect significant savings on your energy bill—especially if you use a lot of AC in the summer.
Window tinting is an investment. Leave it in the hands of professionals, and you will reap the rewards for years to come.
