If you have not tinted a vehicle before and the window goes up and down, you will want to contact us for a quote. We can help with removal and matching the tint to the existing tint on the car. You can save yourself some labor cost if you remove the tint, but if you don't do a good job with the razor, it may require further cleaning of the window if not all of the previous tint is removed.
The older the tint job, in general, the more difficult it is to remove. Dont' forget that tint is tucked into the felt, and that also needs to be removed with a razor.
2. Faded tint on a 10 year old car.
If you bought a used car recently, maybe the tint is faded and it is now 'a bad tint job,' although I'm sure at one point it looked great 8-10 years ago. There is not fix for this, the tint will need to be removed and new tint will need to be installed. Contact us for a quote with your specific make and model. We do not recommend you try to fix this without a professional. As the first 10 times you tint a window that rolls up and down, it will likely catch and ruin the tint you just cut, sprayed, and glued onto the window.
Or, if you don't want tint, you can possibly remove all the tint on your own. Just be prepared with several flat razors. Faded tint means it's old tint, and remember, old tint will not peel off cleanly most of the time. It will take some 'elbow grease' to get it all off. No, your razor should not scratch the glass, and you can use regular glass cleaner to clean the window after. And the tint is in the inside of the car in case you weren't sure ;)
3. The tint / visor is too low or high on the front windshield. Or, a rock hits your windshield and needs to be replaced.
Again, no simple fix. You might think if it is too low that you could simply cut off the bottom, but there's not possible way to keep this level nor looking good. Each windshield is shaped differently. You will have to peel it off, and ask a professional to install a new one. We may recommend going with a darker shade here as lighter shades may not prevent the glare of the sun when driving down a bright mountain road during sunrise or sunset.
One fun fact you should know is that if you are getting all of your windows tinted, that the tinting company may include the visor complimentary (they can usually save some of the tinting materials so that there is not additional material costs and only labor cost for that windshield).
