Mobile Window Tinting VS Professional Window Tinting Shop

professional window tinting

Perhaps the time it takes driving to a reputable professional window tinting shop and waiting for your vehicle to be tinted is not worth your precious time. Especially if it’s a long drive from home. You’d rather just stay indoors together with the comforts of home and hope that someone is tinting your vehicle.

Well you’re in luck, some shops send their installers to your house or anywhere you prefer to do such that while you carry on with your business. Also, start-up tinting services start from these services as well. Although the start-up ones are more common. This type of service is what we call mobile window tinting.
Cool right?

The installers will come directly to you while you sip your coffee and go on with your life. While this option may seem appealing, it also has its pros and cons as compared to professional window tinting in a professional auto tinting shop. Read on about the pros and cons of mobile window tinting to get some insights.

Pros of Mobile Window Tinting:

1. All for your convenience

How awesome it would be to have your vehicle tinted without even having to leave your house? Access to this service as a go-to option gives you great convenience and removes the hassle associated with long drives to the auto tinting shop and waiting awkwardly at their lounges while they finish the job.

Our installers will come directly to you or anywhere you prefer, allowing you to indulge yourself with all the comforts of your house while we tint your vehicle. Sit back and watch our experts at work.

2. Your schedule will not be affected

While your schedule for the week and subsequent weeks are already set in stone, you can still squeeze in tinting your vehicle without affecting your schedule. You can schedule anytime you prefer without the lingering thought of whether adjusting your meeting on the morning to lunch, whatsoever.

Chances are, you even have other nagging worries that needs your full attention and time and professional window tinting doesn’t have to be one of those worries. Let us worry about window tinting your vehicle. Our team of experts and installers is more than willing to go directly to your house for your convenience.

3. Experts come to you

Seeing the experts hard at work at your house gives you a sense of ease that comes only when you’re guaranteed a professional window tinting job. During which, you can observe and mingle with them — ask questions and know a thing or two about their job.

What happens here is beneficial for both parties since the presence of the customer affects the performance of the installer positively. Plus, the customer has a hands-on perspective of the job whereas at the shop, the job is usually done at closed-door without access to customers.

Cons of Mobile Window Tinting:

1. Lack of specialized tools and equipment

Expert installers can only bring a limited amount of tools and equipment. They can’t bring the whole container tool, that’s absurd. Which is why it is important for shops to send experts to handle such a handicapped situation.

But despite this, there are instances when a professional window tinting job is done badly and they have to return some other day to rectify it. In other words, installers have little to no room for mistakes. But if they did commit mistakes, the window tinting job will be prolonged significantly as they will have to return to their shop and fix the situation accordingly.

Start-up tinting services on the other hand usually have no capital investments on specialized tools and equipment. They rather rely on old-fashioned and improvised tools to get by. So don’t expect a high-quality professional window tinting job. But we’re not doing them justice when we already assumed they’re bad. They aren’t necessarily so bad in a sense they’re detested but they aren’t so good either.

2. Low-quality window tint films used

Most mobile window tinting services are start-ups so naturally, they don’t have enough capital to invest for a high-quality window tint film. Expect low-quality dyed or metallic window tint film from them.

Which is better?

Mobile window tinting may seem more appealing. The perks of not having to drive at an auto tinting shop is luxury within our reach. However, the risk of low-quality tinting job is very high and in part, becomes a stigma of mobile window tinting. In fact, most mobile tinting services result in defects in the long run.

A glimmer of hope however is that a small percentage of having an acceptable tinting job from mobile tinting is still possible. Nevertheless, it all turns out on how you weigh your options. If you’re willing to risk your vehicle to a mobile window tinting service while you’re cozy at home, then so be it. If you’re not willing to take risks, you can opt for a professional auto tinting shop and be inconvenienced in other aspects of your life.

Get Vent Visor Shades At Flying Window Tinting

vent visors

All types of drivers, from the moist and muggy weather of Florida to the rainy Northwest, love the comfort and style provided by a set of vent visors, and for good reasons. Don’t you just hate it when you’re driving and it’s raining hard outside, making the interior hot and moist? You can’t just simply open the windows for fresh air because you and the interior will get wet. A set of vent visors take care of this conundrum.
A vent visor or commonly known as a rain visor, window deflector, or rain guard protects you and the interior of your car from inclement weather. It does this by deflecting rain, snow, or hail away from the windows of your car. Plus, they add style to your car’s exterior look, whether you drive a sedan or a full-sized truck.
We Flying window  Tinting have outlined some relevant information about vent visors to help you accustom yourself with the right information so that you can come up with a decision backed with reliable information.

Types of Vent Visors

When it comes to vent visors, there is one burning question always asked aside from the usual ones: How do In-Channel Vent Visors and Tape-On Vent Visors differ from each other, and which style is better? These two are different types of vent visors and differ only in installation processes and other small practical benefits. Keep reading to get insights.
Tape-On Vent Visors: This type of vent visor is considered classic and is around for a long time now. It’s designed to adhere over the frame of your car’s windows via strips of pre-applied, automotive-grade tape. This tape are strong adhesives which usually last for many years. They are also custom designed for each model type car to fit snugly in place, without any need for cutting and drilling.
In-Channel Vent Visors: This type of vent visor on the other hand, does not require any adhesive. Instead, it mounts up into your car’s window channels just like a tongue and groove connection without, any need for cutting and drilling.

Benefits of Installing Vent Visors

Ease of installation: The only prep work you need to do is clean the window frame thoroughly. While the actual work done only requires peeling off the tape backing and sticking the vent visors properly to the window frame.
Water intrusion protection: Because vent visors are situated outside the windows, it deflects incoming water, mostly from rain, so they provide additional shelter around the entire window channel. This allows you so open your windows even while it’s raining for a much needed cool air.
Stylish looks: Vent visors obviously make the window look more sleek and stylish because they add more design to the overall look of the car.
Improves gas mileage: Vent visors help you save on fuel costs because you don’t have to open the air-conditioning unit to keep yourself comfortable each time it rains, especially during summer. We all know that summer rains make the interior of the car moist and humid. Also, vent visors improves the aerodynamics of the car by minimizing wind resistance or drag that hinders the forward movement of your car, resulting to less fuel consumption.
What to Look for when Buying a Vent Visor Kit?
It goes without saying that every planned purchase needs careful planning and research, and vent visors are no exception. If you’re planning to buy a vent visor kit, this is what you should look for:
Durability: You should look for vent visors made from aerospace-grade acrylic because they are considered scratch-resistant and virtually indestructible. Anything less than that will cause you and your car more harm than good, and not get your money’s worth.
Warranty: A high-quality vent visor comes with a lifetime warranty. Anything less than that are considered mediocre quality.
A sleek, low-profile design: A low-profile design is a design that considers the aerodynamics of the car. Vent visors with low-profile design protrudes slightly from the window channel and has a section that helps improves air flow, reducing drag.
Custom fit: Vent visor kits come with many shapes and sizes which are customizable for every car model type. Choosing yours that is designed for your specific car will work and look much better than a universal one.
How to Install a Vent Visor?
Vent visors can be installed by skilled installers or DIY. But whichever the case,.

This Step-by-Step Installation Process

Step 1: Inspect your kit.
Before going in and installing the pieces, make sure that you have all the pieces you need. If you have a four-door car, ensure that the kit have two lefts and two rights. Or if you have a two-door car, ensure that you have a left and right. All pieces must be labeled which side and window they go on.
Step 2: Read the installation instruction, thoroughly.
Reading the instructions not only gives you the insight on what to do but also gives you the heads up for what to prepare.
Step 3: Test fit each vent visor.
For tape-on: Check to make sure each visor lines up with the window channel it mounts on. This will also give you an idea how the vent visors will look on your car, or whether they will fit snugly right in. Doing so prevents the problem of prematurely removing the tape backing without the right fit.
For in-channel: For in-channels, you should roll the windows down to have more working space. Slide the visor up to the top starting in the middle of the window to see how it fits. Also, take note when slipping the blade of the front window visor to the rear-view window mount. This part is tricky because the blade may not fit in right away, allowing you to force the blade to slip it in and risking damage to the rear-view window mount. Once you’ve test-fitted each vent visor, you can now install them.
Step 4: Clean and prep the mounting surface.
For tape-on: Clean the window channel where the vent visor will adhere into by using alcohol pads that are included with your vent visor kit. Remember, the cleaner the face the vent visor will adhere into, the stronger the adhesion between the two would be. Also, clean all the windows all at once to allow them to dry at the same time.
For in-channel: Use the alcohol pads included in your vent visor kit to clean the insides of your window channels.
Step 5: Prep the vent visor.
For tape-on: Peel-off the tape backing of the vent visor and fold it so both ends of the tape backing will stick out, giving you a protruding tape backing that you will remove all the way on the next step.
For in-channel: Peel the backing of the tape on the back of the vent visor.
Step 6: Install the vent visor.
For tape-on: Lift the vent visor into position and line it up. Once you have it initially in place, stick both ends of the vent visor and check its alignment from afar and many angles. If it’s correctly in place just how you want it, remove all the tape backing all throughout and press it down to make sure the tape is attached along its entire length.
For in-channel: Slip the ends of the vent visor into the window channel and carefully put it in place up to the top of the window. Pull the visor towards the top corner of the window to ensure a snug fit. Once it’s in position, just like the way you want it, press the tape into the side of the channel and ensure it’s sticking along the length of the window channel. Then slowly raise the windows and check whether it’s hitting the visor.

Computer Cut Window Tinting Flying Windows Tint

How Does It Work?

In contrary to manual cutting, computer cut tinting requires the use of a special software and plotter. The installer must input the specifications of cut based on the window module of the vehicle. 

What makes this convenient for us is we can make templates of cut for various types of vehicle. For instance, if a Toyota Corolla E210s suites up for window tinting, its specs can be stored in our database which can then be used in making a distinct template of cut suitable for all Toyota Corolla E210s out there. This capability can be extended to all types of vehicle in the future which makes us more efficient in our operations by having readily available templates of cut. 

In other words, we can store all possible templates of cut for every vehicle which can further reduce the service turnaround duration.  

Once inputted, the plotter will cut the window film to specifications with an accuracy of 99.8%. The installer will then install the computer cut window tinting by using a squeegee and heat gun. 

Gone are the days of the laborious and tedious task of manually cutting the window film to sections which are material inefficient and prone to mistakes.

What to look for in a quality window tinting installation

Quality window tinting

What Is A High Quality Window Tinting  Installation?

Despite being the nicest looking vehicle around complete with customized hoods, mufflers, stickers and everything, it only takes a bad window tinting job to spoil its whole look. The obvious and very noticeable output of a bad window tinting job is apparent, especially to car enthusiasts. 

More importantly, it can affect some aspects of its performance in blocking theharmful effects of sunlight. Plus, the likelihood of premature peeling and bubbling is high which have negative effects in its appearance and performance. 

So it’s important to know whether your vehicle has undergone a good or bad window tinting job. If proven that the latter is the case, you must protest your claims at the auto tinting shop that serviced you and have them replace it immediately, without additional cost. 

Here are the telltale signs to look at to determine whether you have a bad window tinting job:

What to look for in a quality window tinting installation Flying Windows Tint

Evident Gap and Uneven Lines

The first thing to look at is the window edges. Check for big gaps between the window films and the line of cut of the film. If big gaps are present and the line of cut are uneven, it only means a bad window tinting job due to poor workmanship. 

Also, the line of cut of the window film must be seamless enough without ragged cuts and should fit the window section snugly.

Purple Tint

Purple tint appear only in low-quality window tint films due to UV exposure. Seeing a purple-ish window tint film suggests that your auto tinting shop had used an inferior material.

Appearance id Bubbles

The appearance of bubbles is caused by two reasons, both of which concerns the workmanship of installation and quality of window films used. 

In terms of workmanship, bubbling only appears if the prep work on the windows is not done properly. A good prep work must remove all dirt and foreign material as to provide a suitable adhesion surface for the window film. Even though you have the best window films to be installed, a bad prep work will always guarantee appearance of bubbles. 

In terms of quality, bubbles will appear when low-quality window films’ adhesive starts to break down prematurely. When this happens, air will enter the gap which will bulge even more — forming unsightly bubbles.

Window Film Failure To Stick To Dot Matrix 

The dot matrix are basically textured surface for the shade band to stick to the front windshield. This textured surface however is difficult for window tint films to adhere to. A good auto tinting shop will have ways to overcome this issue and install the window films with ease. 

If the window film isn’t installed properly, you will notice broken lines and bubbles at the dot matrix.

Bubbling at Defroster Wires

Just like the dot matrix, defroster bars are also textured in a way that it’s elevated from the surface of the rear window. This window feature makes it difficult for window tint films to adhere to. However, reputable auto tinting shops have no problems installing window films at defroster bars. 

If the window film isn’t installed properly, there will be gaps at the defroster bar without adhesive. These gaps are the places where bubbles form and becomes larger over time. 

Find Your Own Reputable Auto Tinting Shop

You’re maybe wondering, if I’m guaranteed a good window tinting job from reputable auto tinting shop, I won’t be doing any of those things outlined above. That’s true, but it’s always better to know more. Knowing more gives you certain advantages given different circumstances. 

However, if you do are looking for a reputable auto tinting shop, we at Flying Window Tinting can guarantee a good window tinting job, removing the likelihood of you inconvenienced by bad window tinting job.
