The Top 6 Reasons to Tint your Car

Tinted windows are great way to get noticed. A quality window film can take your vehicle from ordinary to sleek and stylish, but it does more than elevate the appearance. Window tinting has many benefits, including increased safety, security and comfort. Here are the top six reasons to tint your car.


Safer driving

Summer is now quickly approaching here in Wilmington, and with summer comes more sun. While the sun may have us feeling happy and rejuvenated after a long winter, more sun means more glare. Glare while driving is not only annoying, it’s also dangerous. Window film will help shield and protect your eyes and prevent glare, keeping you safer while on the road.


Added Privacy

As we approach the fun and festive summer holidays and traveling, the chances of theft are going to increase. Tinting your windows keeps your vehicle and the important things inside safe from prying eyes.


Shatterproof and scratch-resistant

In case of an accident, the film adhesive in window tinting minimizes shattering. This helps protect the driver and the rest of the vehicle from damage caused by shards of glass.


Protects upholstery

Dashboards and seats can become damaged after years of baking in the sun. This not only decreases the look and feel of your car, but also its value. Window tint will help block those UV rays that cause irreparable damage and discoloration to your vehicle’s interior.


Helps beat the heat

Summers in southeastern North Carolina can be ruthless, taking no mercy on anyone—or anything. These high temperatures can create uncomfortable and even dangerous situations. However, a quality tint can reduce heat inside your car by 60%. That means more comfort for you and a safer environment for family and pets.


Keeps you healthy

We know it’s important to use sunscreen when at the beach or as we sit on the ball field, but what we don’t realize is that millions of Americans receive a large portion of their sun exposure when they’re hardly aware of it- in their car. Recent studies have shown that driving is linked to approximately 53% of skin cancers in the U.S. on the left side of the body. Professional window tints can block up to 99% of UV rays, keeping your skin healthy.
