Two Ways to Tint Car Windows

A lot of people like to have their car windows tinted; it could be that they are sensitive to light and they don't want to have a lot of in their car, or they don't want a lot of ultraviolet (UV) damage to the interior of the car. It could also be that the car's owner wants to make sure that they have as much privacy as possible when they are out and driving around. For example, you see a lot of window tinting in executive level cars provided by car services. There are different ways that the windows can be tinted. 

Integrated Tint

One way that the windows can be tinted during the manufacturing process. When the glass itself is being made, the tinting dyes can be added in. That means that the finished glass is going to be tinted to the correct degree. The glass can be tinted to different darknesses, depending on the specifications. This glass is generally installed in cars during the manufacturing process or as part of a customized order. If you want to have tinted windows, you can also go to an auto glass shop. They can order tinted glass for you and install the windows at any point. 

Tinted Film

Another way that you can get your car's windows tinted is to use tinted film. This is a very, very thin film that has been tinted to different degrees. It gets applied to the windows and adheres to it. It looks as if the window was always tinted and is usually very difficult to take off the windows without the proper tools—that is, as long as the film has been installed correctly. It is something that you can do yourself, but if you do, you are going to have to be very careful because you want to make sure that the film is placed in exactly the right place and that there are no air bubbles under the film which could cause the film to not stay the way that it should. A better option is to take your car to an auto shop that offers tinting services. They will have better tinted film than you could get, and they will have better tools to apply it. This means you should have no problems with it staying on the car's windows for as long as you have the car. 

As you can see, there are a lot of reasons why you may want to have your auto's windows tinted. Contact a company like City  Glass for more information.
