Window tinting provides a beautiful and streamlined look to your car, but window tinting isn’t just for aesthetic purposes. Although it’s a beautiful addition to a vehicle, it also plays a significant role in protection.

Although Mercer Island and Seattle aren’t the sunniest of places, but we are still exposed to UV rays. Window tint provides protection not only to the vehicle but also to the driver and passengers. Keep your skin safe from harmful UV rays while preventing your interior from premature aging. Tinted windows help block dangerous UV Rays which are greatly attributed to skin cancer and deterioration of eye health. Considering how many hours of our lives we spend in our cars, whether it’s our daily work commute, transporting children, or the occasional family road trip, UV exposure isn’t something to take lightly. A good window tint also helps reduce glare while driving and provides added privacy, which is necessary especially when parking in the city. Contact us today for a free quote!

We Use The Best Quality Film Out There

Tint is an easy way to give your vehicle a better flare. More importantly, window tinting protects you and your car from the sun.

In addition to blocking harmful UV Rays, window tint reduces heat and glare. This allows for a more comfortable interior vehicle temperature and a safer drive. In Washington, we don’t always experience the sunniest days, but glare is still an issue. Glare causes dangerous visual obstruction to the driver and increases the risk for an accident to occur. UV rays can take a toll on a vehicle’s interior. Leather, cloth and plastics can become faded and damaged from the UV rays and heat. This is easily prevented with window tint. Another important protection feature is window shatter prevention. Window tint adds an extra layer of protection to your windows, increases the strength of windows and can help prevent shattering in the case of an unexpected event. We all value our privacy but unfortunately not everyone respects it. Tinted windows block the view of wandering eyes and helps keep your personal belongings protected when you’re away from your vehicle.

Washington Laws on Window Tinting

You’re probably wondering how much tint is legally allowed on your car. In regards to the windshield, the top six inches can be coated with non-reflective tint. The front side windows must allow more than 24% of light and the rear window and back side windows must also allow more than 24% of light in. The same rules apply for your rear window.

Ceramic vs. Carbon: Let’s Compare

We are proud to offer two premium brands of window tint: SunTek and STEK.

Both Ceramic and Carbon Tint offer great protective benefits. Carbon film does not contain any metal, so you will have no issues with cell phone and radio transmission. The carbon content in this window film blocks about 40% of infrared light that enters through your windows. It is great at regulating interior temperatures taking the strain off of your air conditioning and heater.

Ceramic film is usually pricier because of its incredible quality. It contains neither metal, dye, or carbon. Instad it contains a ceramic particle that is both nonconductive and  nonmetallic. It is a newer technology but it has already proven itself in terms of performance. It cuts around 45% to 50% of the solar heat that enters though your windows. Ceramic film allows maximum efficiency in the functioning of radios, cell phones, and GPS systems and provides shatter-proof properties.
