Feb 3

The most frequently asked question with regards to purchasing tinted car tint windows San Diego is how the process will take. There are many factors to consider so there is no definitive answer. Let's look at just a few.


How Many Tinted Windows Are There?


The more windows there is the more time it takes as with everything else in life. It is important to consider the number of windows you have in your car, and how many you'd like to tint. This will affect how long it will take to tint the windows. A standard four-door sedan may take between 90 and two hours to tint the windows, while minivans and SUVs can take four hours or longer. Tinting smaller vehicles can take longer if they have bigger windows or are difficult to reach.


The Windows Have Been Tinted Previously

If your car's windows are already tinted, and you're switching to another tint or replacing damaged or scratched tinting film, the tinting process may take a bit longer than normal. The tint installers have to remove the old tint and then clean the glass to ensure that the adhesive residue has been removed. When the glass is dry and clean, they can start adding the new tint. It will depend on the condition of the tint and the number of windows that have to be tinted.


Seasonal Aspects

Even if you work in an enclosed or covered area, the time needed to tint your car's windows can depend on the season. Spring and autumn are the best times to tint your automobile windows, depending on the location you live in. This is because of the lower humidity and cooler temperatures. Window tints aren't as difficult to apply in high temperatures. It's just more straightforward to do it when there is a lot of humidity and freezing temperatures. There are two factors that affect the curing time for freshly applied window tints The first one is a curing time right after the film is installed, meaning that you'll need to wait a couple of minutes before driving your vehicle.


The next step is to leave the film in place for two or three days. You are able to drive around while the film cures, but you should not open windows with new tints. If it is cold, the curing times may increase and you'll have to be patient for a longer time before you are able to drive your vehicle. Also, you won't be permitted to open your windows for more than 3 consecutive days. It's not a problem to tint your windows during the middle or the middle of summer. This means that you need to allow more time for the installation.
