Choosing the Right Window Tint for your Car

Know your tint level limitations

Suntamers is an experienced car window tinting company, and if we’ve learned anything in our 45 years as a business it’s this: the sun is out to get all of us.
Knowing this, you may be inclined to choose the darkest tint available for your car, but did you know that dark window tint can make it harder to see at night? Additionally, state laws regulate tint levels, so you will need to check before choosing your tint level. Or you could just skip the hassle and have a professional auto window tint company  do the work.

Don’t tint outdoors

You know how you need to clean the screen on your smartphone before applying the screen protector, and even then, you end up with little bits of fuzz under there? That’s because you’re working in an uncontrolled environment.

Privacy window film prevents those outside your home from looking in, while still letting you enjoy the views from inside your home. One thing to be aware of is that one way daytime privacy film is what it says it is: privacy film for the daytime. If you turn a light on inside your home after dark you may be visible.
