Orlando Window Tint Specialists Share How to Avoid a Tinting Nightmare

orlando window tint specialists

As Orlando window tint specialists, here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting, we have plenty of experience tinting car windows. Unfortunately, we also have experience in fixing the car windows of people who have gone with less than reputable companies for their window tinting. So today we want to share advice on how to avoid this kind of window tinting nightmare!

Orlando Window Tint Specialists Share How to Avoid a Window Tinting Nightmare!

Don’t Do It Yourself

Do it yourself car window tinting is never a good option. Not only do you lack the experience to properly fit window tint film yourself, but the tints that you purchase in-store are far from the professional tints available at professional shops. These “over-the-counter” films are not cut specifically to fit your car windows which means that they aren’t a perfect fit. So, not only are you getting window tint films that aren’t ideal for your vehicle, but you are also going to experience difficulties like bubbling and wrinkling of the tint if you don’t know what you are doing during installation.

Don’t Go With Cheap Window Tint Film

Whether you do your own installation or whether you have a window tint shop do the installation for you, don’t go with cheap window tint film! Reputable Orlando Window Tint specialists will invest only in high-quality window tint film so if the shop you choose carries only cheap window tint film or even offers such film, turn tail and run! Whatever you do, don’t go with a cheap film just because it’s the only option, it’s the cheapest option, or because you’re “already there”. These cheap tints will not only look terrible on your windows, but they will cost money to remove when you realize how awful they look!

Research Orlando Window Tint Specialists Before You Go!

Before you make an appointment to get your car windows tinted, do your research. Research local shops to get an idea of experiences others have had at the shop, look at any photographs that are shared by customers of the shop, find out what type of window tint film is offered by the shop and research the types of film to determine which high-quality film is right for you.

After doing your research, don’t be afraid to go down to a window tint shop that you are considering and look around. Ask any questions that you have about window tinting and your needs. Take a look at work that is being done currently and take the time to decide whether you are happy with the work that the shop performs.

Know What You Are Looking For in Window Tint

When you go to get your car windows tinted, know what you want from your window tint film. Knowing what you’re looking for will make sure that you don’t settle for less when you visit local shops. Are you looking for protection against UV rays? Are you looking for privacy? Are you looking for the whole nine yards?

Look For a Shop with Experience

When looking for Orlando window tint specialists, look for a shop with experience. How long has the shop been in business? Newer shops aren’t necessarily bad news – sometimes they just move location! – but shops that have been established for a longer period of time are more likely to be a trusted part of the community. Shops that have been set up overnight are more likely to be fly by night businesses or businesses that have poor service.

Ask Questions and Know the Answers

When it comes to window tint, there are laws in effect that govern how dark window tint can legally be. These laws differ by state and it’s important that technicians working on your car window tint are familiar with local laws. A shop that is not familiar with local laws is not a shop that you should trust with your car. Know your local laws before visiting a car window tinting shop and ask questions when you get there to verify that the shop you have chosen is knowledgeable.

Find Out How Their Window Tint Film is Cut

When researching shops for your car window tint, make sure to find out how the shop cuts their film. A shop that does not offer computer cutting of their films is a shop that you should be wary of. Here at Flying Window Tinting Orlando, we use a computer to cut all of our window tinting films to be sure that your films fit your exact windows. Other types of cutting can lead to misfitting films, mistakes in cutting, uneven cuts, and other errors. You can’t afford to invest in ill-fitting car window tint films, make sure that your tint films are cut to order and not pre-cut in a factory in the middle of nowhere.

Don’t Get Pressured into Anything by Anyone

When you choose to get your car windows tinted it’s your choice. That means that you control the situation. You determine what type of film you get, you determine when you get it installed, and you determine who installs it. Here at Flying Window Tinting Orlando we don’t believe in high pressure sales pitches. We believe that you have the right to choose what, when, and who and we’re more than happy to give you the information that you need to make that decision. Don’t let other companies pressure you into products or services that you aren’t fully comfortable with, let your purchase be your choice!

Heat Blocking Window Tint: What You Should Know About Llumar Air Blue 80

heat blocking window tint

Heat blocking window tint is a real blessing for drivers in Florida. It not only helps to reduce heat damage to the interior of your car, but it also takes some of the workload off your car’s air conditioning system especially during the summer months! If you have decided to or are in the process of deciding to invest in heat blocking window tint for your car though, it’s important to know exactly what you’re investing in. You don’t just want a reputable shop to install your heat blocking car window tint, you also want a top-quality window tint film that will last. Here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting, we use one of the best heat rejection window tints and today we want to tell you a little bit about it!

Heat Blocking Window Tint for Cars: Llumar Air Blue 80

At Orlando Flying Window Tinting we know that when you pay to have your car windows tinted, you are making an investment and like any investment, you want it to pay off. So how does a car window tint “pay off”? That depends on the window tinting film you use. We choose to use LLumar brand window tinting film because it doesn’t just do the job it excels at the job and it outlasts competing window tint brands.

There is a variety of different window tints available through Llumar and we have most of them in stock, but today we want to focus on Llumar Air Blue 80.

Llumar Air Blue 80, the Heat Blocking Window Tint Film

Llumar Air Blue 80 is a clear window tint film that is designed to protect against heat and UV rays without the added tint of colored films. The lack of color in Llumar Air Blue heat blocking window tint film is particularly important because it allows you to cover your windshield without breaking any laws against windshield tinting and it doesn’t impair your view as a driver.

Llumar Air Blue 80 heat blocking window tint is a ceramic technology film that is both non-metalized and non-conductive and it incorporates maximum ultra-violet rejection, rejecting 99% of harmful UV rays! With 43% heat rejection, Llumar Air Blue 80 is micro-thin and can even be installed on factory tinted windows. The lack of tint in this heat blocking window tint film provides excellent clarity for driving in all conditions and scratch-resistant and corrosion-resistant properties give it a much longer life than other window tinting films.

The Skin Cancer Foundation Recommends Llumar Heat Blocking Window Tint!

The technical specs for Llumar Air Blue 80 are important, but if they’re a little over your head and you’re looking for information in terms that are easy to understand, know that Llumar heat blocking window tint is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. Granted to sun protection products that meet the specific criteria set out by an independent photobiology committee, the Skin Cancer Foundation’s seal of recommendation lets you know that a product is safe and effective in protecting against UV ray exposure.

How Does Llumar Heat Blocking Window Tint Work?

According to Llumar their clear window film can reduce interior surface temperatures by at least 26° F when a car is parked on an asphalt lot or driving on a warm, sunny day. So, how does Llumar heat blocking window tint work to protect you against UV ray exposure and provide heat rejection properties?

The nature of your car’s windshield means that it doesn’t just allow a large field of vision, but it also lets in incredible amounts of light, heat, and UV rays. While the large field of vision is great for safe driving and the light is important for being able to see through that large windshield, the heat and UV rays that come with that light aren’t necessarily welcome.

Clear window tint for your car works by filtering out heat generating wavelengths from the sun’s rays. Filtering radiation from the sun, heat blocking window tint is able to keep temperatures inside your car cooler while still allowing the permeation of wavelengths that create light to pass through the window. In short, this means that you can still enjoy the great field of vision offered by your windshield and benefit from the light that it allows in. It also means that your skin and the interior of your car are better protected against UV rays that can cause skin cancer and that cause unnecessary wear and tear to your car’s interior.

How Much Heat Does a Heat Blocking Window Tint Film Block?

This is a question we hear frequently, but the truth is that it greatly varies depending on a range of factors. The best way to find out how much heat is rejected by a particular window tint is to ask your car window tint installer. In the case of Llumar Air Blue 80, 43% of the heat that hits your windshield will be rejected leading to drastic reductions in the interior temperature of your vehicle.

What Are the Benefits of Heat Blocking Window Tint?

Heat blocking car window tint like the Llumar Air Blue 80 that we use here at Flying Window Tinting Orlando offers many benefits including:

  • Decreased risk of developing skin cancer
  • Decreased risk of sunburn while driving
  • Decreased risk of overheating while waiting in traffic.
  • No tint means no distortion of your field of vision and no possibility of breaking state laws pertaining to legal tint percentage.
  • Heat rejection properties also protect the interior of your car from damage from the sun’s rays. If you have leather seats, this means less cracking and if you have fabric seats, this means less fading!
  • Shatter resistance is another benefit that comes with adding any high-quality window tint film to your car, making accidents and fender benders safer for everyone!
  • Heat blocking window tint also means that the air conditioning system in your car doesn’t have to work as hard to keep the car cool and that saves you plenty in gas bills and in maintenance fees!

7 Interesting Facts You Should Know About Car Window Tinting

car window tinting

If you’ve been considering car window tinting, then you’ve likely been trying to find out as much as you can about the car window tinting process. Well, today we’re dropping by with some interesting window tinting facts that we thought you’d find interesting!

7 Car Window Tinting Facts You Should Know!

1. Spray On Window Tinting Was a “Thing”

From around the time of World War II, all the way through until the 1960’s the only method of “at home” window tinting was a spray on window tint. Designed to emulate the window tint offered by automobile manufacturers, these aerosol solutions were a more affordable means for car owners to get that “factory tint”. The problem was, however, that these sprays were messy and didn’t begin to measure up to a professionally tinted glass. The even bigger problem was the extremely dark tint that spray tinting gave windows and the fact that spray tinting always resulted in uneven and blotchy tint!

2. 1966 Saw the Introduction of Window Tinting Film

It wasn’t until 1966 that window tinting film made its first debut and even then, the tint that was introduced had absolutely no resemblance to the window tint films we use today! It actually absorbed heat into the vehicle it was used on rather than helped to keep the vehicle cooler!

3. The First Car Window Tint Film Was a Disaster!

The first window tinting films that were introduced in 1966 were dye-based tints. This caused more than a few problems when it began changing color once exposed to the sun. In no time at all, window tint would turn from black to purple and it would even begin to bubble and peel off the windows! Needless to say, this type of film didn’t have a very long lifespan at all and many owners found themselves taking off what was left of the film not long after they’d put it on!

4. Car Window Tint Film Version 2.0 Was Also Dye-Based

Despite being a disaster the first time it was released, the second version of car window tinting film also dye-based. Unlike its predecessor, however, the second incarnation of car window tint film also contained metallic particles. Released in the 1990’s, car window tinting film version 2.0 was more of a success than its predecessor based solely on the fact that the metallic particles stopped so much heat from being absorbed into the vehicle. This new film actually absorbed 50% of the sun’s heat and kept cars significantly cooler!

5. Car Window Tinting Film Version 2.0 Wasn’t Perfect, Though

Although the metallic particles in the new version of car window tinting film did reduce the amount of heat that was entering the vehicle, they also sometimes caused interference with electronic signals. This meant that people were experiencing trouble with their GPS units and cell phones.

6. The Newest Car Window Tinting Film Has Made Great Strides!

The newest version of car window tinting film took version 2.0 and improved upon it once again. A few tweaks here and there and car window tinting film version 3.0 brought much more to the table. Not only did this new version offer reduced heat absorption inside the vehicle, it also did not interfere with electronic signals the way that version 2.0 did. Plus, a few more tweaks and this version also offered UV ray protection, so it absorbed UV rays rather than letting them pass through to the interior of the car – great news for your skin as well as your car’s interior!

7. State Laws Governing the Tint Percentage of Car Window Tint Film

The newest version of car window tinting film varies considerably in terms of the darkness of the film itself. The darkness of car window tint soon became something of a status symbol. It became “cool” to have car window film tinted so dark that it was impossible to see inside the car. This pushed states to create laws governing the visible light transmission of car window tinting film.

Visible light transmission (or VLT) refers to the amount of light that is able to pass through the tinted car window. If a tinting film is so dark that very little light is able to pass through the window, it becomes a serious hazard both to the driver of the car and those around them. Not only does very dark window tinting film make night driving particularly difficult for the driver, but it makes it much more difficult for law enforcement to see through the windows of cars and identify drivers. This isn’t just a problem when a car’s driver has committed a crime, it’s equally problematic when patrolling law enforcement are unable to spot drivers who may pose a threat to the community i.e. drivers who are acting suspiciously.

To combat the complications that result from car window tinting that is too dark, various states enacted state-specific laws that determine what percentage of visible light transmission a tint must have to still be considered safe for that state. There is considerable variance in the VLT percentages that are acceptable for each state, for example in Washington State window tinting film has a low VLT of 24% where in California, window tinting film should have a VLT of 88%! In addition, in some states different VLT percentages are permissible for different windows of the car! This is just one reason why you should never allow someone who is inexperienced to apply your car window tint film. A professional and experienced installer is conscious of state regulations and will never put your safety at risk by bypassing those regulations.

Why Get the Headlight Restoration Orlando Flying Window Tinting Offers?

headlight restoration Orlando

Why should you invest in the headlight restoration Orlando Flying Window Tinting offers? There are many benefits to having your car headlights restored and today we’re going to touch on a few of them as well as tell you about the headlight restoration process.

About the Headlight Restoration Orlando Flying Window Tinting Offers

It’s a natural process for your car headlights to become cloudy or oxidized over time if you don’t faithfully care for them. In some cases even when you regularly clean and care for your car headlights, you may experience clouding of your headlight casing. Go to a body shop and they will tell you that your headlight casing needs replacing – a costly investment or they will charge you through the nose for headlight restoration.

Here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting, we offer headlight restoration Orlando can count on without taking every dollar you have. We don’t believe that you should have to fork over everything just to be able to travel safely which is why we can restore your car’s headlights at a reasonable price with professional precision.

What Are the Benefits of Headlight Restoration Orlando Flying Window Tinting Offers?

Orlando Flying Window Tinting offers headlight restoration services you can afford, but what are the benefits of investing in this process? Is it worth investing in at all?

YES!

Let us tell you why…

Dim Headlights Impede Your Night Driving

When you’re driving at night there are a million and one hazards to be aware of but the dullness of your headlights shouldn’t be one of them.

When your car headlights are dim it makes night driving exceptionally difficult because now you are not only contending with the usual night driving concerns, but you are making them harder to spot.

That deer by the side of the road that was nearly impossible to spot? It’s even harder to spot when your headlights are dull.

The shredded truck tire in the middle of the road? With dull headlights, the chances are that you’re not going to spot that in time to switch lanes either.

Restoring your headlights will improve your night driving vision by projecting clear and bright light onto the road making your night travel much safer!

Dim Headlights Are a Danger to Other Drivers

Night driving with dim headlights isn’t just a danger to you as a driver, but it’s also a danger to other drivers on the road at night.

Your car’s headlights are a safety mechanism that warns you of oncoming obstacles and dangers, but it also warns other drivers of your approach.

When your car’s headlights are dimmed, it can be much harder for other drivers to see you coming and this can lead to a number of problems.

  • Other drivers can fail to see you when switching lanes and result in an accident.
  • Oncoming drivers can fail to see you when deciding to cross the road to overtake a car in front of them resulting in an accident.
  • Drivers may not see you behind them and stop suddenly to avoid hitting an animal crossing the road resulting in you rear-ending their car.

All of the above situations don’t just result in damage to your car, but they can also seriously injure you, your family, and other drivers on the road.

Dim Headlights Take Away From the Aesthetics of Your Car

Another reason why you should consider having your car headlights restored is the aesthetics of your car. Of course, the aesthetics of your car aren’t nearly as important as the safety of you, your family, and other drivers, but it is still a good reason to get your headlights restored!

When your car has dim and cloudy headlights it makes it look older, less pleasing to the eye, and takes away from the value of your car if you are considering selling it at any point soon.

There are many other benefits to headlight restoration too, these include:

  • Saving money by avoiding complete headlight replacement.
  • Headlight restoration can remove scratches on your headlight lenses too!
  • Headlight restoration also allows you to keep the original headlights in your car which can prevent devaluation of your car due to replacement headlight units!

Can You Just Purchase a Do It Yourself Headlight Restoration Kit?

You could…but the results you will get from a DIY headlight restoration kit will be a far cry from the professional restoration services that we offer here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting.

DIY kits are designed to remove residue from your headlight housing and create a brighter appearance. While this may work, the results are going to be minimal and you will only see residue removal. When you have your headlights professionally restored, you don’t just get more residue removed from your headlight housing due to the use of more powerful equipment, but you will also see scratches buffed out. This combination of residue removal and buffing out of scratches will leave your headlights looking much cleaner and improve the overall value of your car if you’re looking to sell.

Buffing out of scratches when having your headlights restored also has an added benefit of creating a more secure housing for your headlights. With deep scratches, it’s possible for cracks to occur over time. These cracks will contribute to severe dimming of your headlights as well as allowing water to enter the headlight housing. When this happens you have no choice but to pay for the complete replacement of your car headlights and that is a pricey investment!

Car Window Tint Kit Vs Professional Car Window Tinting

car window tint kit

Thinking that a car window tinting kit might be a good choice for your vehicle because it’ll save you on cost? Wondering what benefits there are to professional car window tinting? Just want to know the differences between using a car window tint kit and professional car window tinting so you can decide for yourself? Then you’re in luck because today we’re covering all of these topics and then some.

What is a Car Window Tint Kit and how does it Compare to Professional Car Window Tinting?

A car window tint kit is a kit that you can purchase online and in some auto stores and megastores. The kits come with basic window tinting film for your car windows and sometimes they also include the tools needed to apply the film too. If the kit doesn’t come with the tools you need for application, you can purchase these separately in a small toolkit. Each car window tint kit also comes with instructions on how to install the tint on your car windows. Depending on the type of kit you purchase, you may or may not get laser cut tint films that are made for your particular vehicle.

In comparison, professional car window tinting is done at a specialty window tint shop and at some auto shops. As a service, professional car window tinting does not rely on “kits”, they use specialty films, professional tools, and their experience to install tints on your car windows.

Essentially, the difference between the car window tint kit and professional car window tinting is that one is a DIY solution where the other is a professional service. How do they compare? Let’s take a look…

The Pro’s of the Car Window Tint Kit

  •  The DIY nature of the car window tint kit makes it an affordable solution for everyone.
  • You can get your car window tint kit in hours at a range of stores and apply it ASAP.

The Pro’s of Professional Car Window Tinting

  • Window films are professional quality films.
  • Films and service from a professional car window tinting shop are almost always covered by a warranty.
  • Professional application of window film means that each window is covered properly and fully.
  • There is more selection in car window tint when you utilize professional car window tinting services.
  • You have the opportunity to talk to someone who is educated in window film application and the different available tints so that you can decide which tint is right for your needs and have that tint applied without creases or bubbles.
  • Having a professional install your car window tint film means that you also have a professional who can take off any old film so that you don’t have to!
  • A professional technician at a car window tinting shop is aware of laws that govern car window film tint in the state where they operate. This means that you won’t end up with a tint that is so dark that you get pulled over and fined for illegal window tint in your state.
  • It doesn’t matter what type of car you have, a professional installer can make sure that your tints are cut to fit your car make and model.

The Cons of the Car Window Tint Kit

  • The DIY nature of the car window tint kit makes it easy to improperly install films on your windows so that they look bad and don’t function properly.
  • These kits rarely come with a warranty and if they do, it’s an extremely limited one.
  • Many professional quality window tint films are not sold to retail customers which means only cheaper, lower quality films are available to purchase yourself in car window tint kits.
  • Cheaper window tint films in this kit often yellow in color or peel soon after application.
  • You have limited access to resources that can help you to decide which tint is right for you.
  • In addition to being cheap, car window tint films often look cheap in comparison to professional quality films.
  • Applying your own car window tint film without any experience can often lead to bubbles, creases, and other aesthetically poor qualities.
  • If your car already has tint on the windows that needs removing, you’ll need to remove this tint yourself before applying any new tint.
  • Doing your own window tinting with a car window tint kit can result in you purchasing and applying tints that are too dark for your state. If this happens, you will not only be ordered to remove the tints by local authorities, but you will likely have to pay a fine after being pulled over by the police!
  • These tint films are usually “cut your own” films but if they are available in precut films, you can only find popular car makes and models.

The Cons of Professional Car Window Tinting

  • Professional car window tinting is a more expensive option than a car window tint kit.
  • You’ll have to leave your car for a few hours to have the films applied to your windows.
  • You may have to wait to get an appointment to have your windows professionally tinted.

Window Tinting Florida Experts Share What You Need to Know Before You Tint

window tinting Florida

Here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting, our window tinting Florida experts know everything there is to know about tinting your car windows. If you are thinking about getting your car windows tinted in Florida, we want to make sure that you know everything you need to know before you get started too. That’s why we’ve put together a quick post to help guide you through everything you need to know about car window tinting.

Window Tinting Florida Experts Share What You Need to Know Before Tinting

Are You Investing in the Best Quality Window Tints?

When it comes to window tinting your car in Florida it’s important that you invest in the best tints possible. Of course, everyone wants the best, but here in Florida it’s even more important that you get top quality tints so that they will serve their purpose as well as last a good period of time. When you buy the cheapest window tints you will notice that the Florida heat soon takes its toll and your investment winds up leaving your car looking terrible!

Here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting we only use the best quality window tints from Llumar because it’s the only brand we trust in our own vehicles!

Is the Florida Car Window Tinting Company You Are Hiring a Reputable One?

There are more car window tinting companies than you can count here in Orlando, but with so many companies it’s important that you hire a reputable one. That means not choosing the cheapest company on the block or simply hiring a company because they are located close to your office. Putting tint on your car windows requires precision and knowledge and hiring the wrong company can lead to a lot of expense as you try to fix what went wrong during your installation.

So, how do you know if the company you are hiring is a reputable one? The first thing you should look at is how long that business has been operating. Is the company you are considering a “new guy on the block” or have they been around long enough to build a reputation? Orlando Flying Window Tinting has been in business since 1987 and we don’t plan on going anywhere anytime soon. Ask around and see what our previous customers have to say and you’ll see why we are the number one company for Orlando window tinting!

Why Do You Want Tinted Windows on Your Car?

Most car owners here in Florida get their windows tinted to help reduce the wear and tear on their vehicle’s AC unit. Quality tinting with UV protection filters out sunlight and helps to keep the interior temperature of your car lower. Adding quality tint also helps to keep the temperature of your car down when your engine isn’t running by increasing the time it takes for the inside of your car to heat up.

If you aren’t looking to keep the interior of your car cooler, you might want to consider clear tint instead. This type of tint is designed to filter out UV rays, protecting your family from sun exposure without the dark tint.

Worried about getting good reception on your electronic devices? You can invest in a ceramic tint that reduces interference with your electronic devices while also filtering out sunlight.

Before you head in to get your car windows tinted decide what you want from your tint so you can decide which tint is best for your needs.

Do You Know How to Maintain Your Window Tint?

When you invest in window tint for your car it’s important that you know how to properly maintain it. Without proper care and maintenance you risk damaging the tint on your car windows and blowing your investment.

Once you have found a reputable window tinting company to do your tint for you, spend time talking to them about how to properly maintain your tint. If the company you are hiring isn’t prepared to tell you how to properly care for your window tint or if they don’t know how to properly care for your tint once they have installed it, run! A good company knows everything there is to know about their product and they’ll be happy to help you to maintain your investment.

Don’t Be Tempted to DIY

It’s much cheaper to buy window tint yourself and do the install job on your own but there’s a reason why professional installers charge for their labor. Window tint films that are available to the public are of much lower caliber than the films that are available to professional installers.

Not only are the window films you buy much poorer quality, but having to install them yourself means that you have minimal tools to ensure that the installation goes well. When a professional does your installation they have access to professional tools and have years of experience under their belt. When you do your own car window tint installation job you are doing little more than following instructions on a packet and those instructions are broad, vague, and don’t include what to do if something goes wrong. When a professional does your installation, nothing does go wrong because the films are top quality and the service is too!

5 Things to Consider When Getting Window Tint Florida Services

Window Tint Florida

When purchasing window tint Florida services for your car, it’s important that you know exactly what it is that you’re looking for before you head down to your installation expert. That’s why today we want to cover a few of these points so that you can be ready to answer any questions on installation day!

5 Considerations When Getting Window Tint Florida Services

1. What is Your Budget?

The most important thing you need to consider when you make an appointment to get your vehicle windows tinted is your budget! What type of budget are you working with? Does that budget allow you to get a quality window tinting job done or does it require you to cut corners? Can you afford to get the type of window tint that you want to get?

Obviously, it’s important to stay within your budget, you never want to overstretch your finances. If you aren’t sure what type of cost you are looking at for window tinting, call your installation company and ask for general pricing information. This will give you a ballpark figure so that you can plan ahead.

Does your budget allow for you to get the quality window tinting or are you cutting corners and going with a less than reputable installer or a subpar type of tint? If you find yourself in either of these situations we always recommend waiting a little longer to get your windows tinted so that you can save for a top quality install job instead!

Can you afford to get the type of window tint that you want to get? If you really want the top of the line window tint with all the “bells and whistles” can your budget comfortably afford it? If not and you’re settling for something less than what you want, wait a little while longer until you can afford the option you prefer or you’ll end up regretting it.

2. Why Are You Getting Your Windows Tinted?

Consider why you are getting your windows tinted. Why you are getting your windows tinted is an important factor in determining what type of window tint you should get since different tints offer different benefits.

Here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting, we specialize in Llumar tints and have three categories of tint available. Each of these categories has its own benefits and will help you to determine which is best for your needs.

Our dyed window tints are our most affordable tinting option and they provide the basic anti-glare and privacy characteristics that most car owners are looking for when they tint their car windows.

Our Metallized window tints offer the anti-glare and privacy options of our dyed window tints but they also provide climate control. This is our most popular window tint option here in Florida because it reduces the wear and tear on your car’s AC system and keeps your car much cooler even when your engine is off!

Lastly, our ceramic window tint is our top of the line window tinting option, it offers all of the benefits of our other window tints but it also utilizes nano-technology to prevent signal interference with your digital devices.

3. What Are Your State Laws in Regard to Car Window Tinting?

If you are getting your car windows tinted in a state other than your home state make sure that you know the laws in your home state as they pertain to window tinting. Each state has their own laws pertaining to window tinting and these laws stipulate what tint percentage is permitted in that state. If you are getting your windows tinted in another state make sure that your installer is aware of the laws in your home state so that your window tint is legal when you return home.

Don’t expect a window tint installer in Florida to know the laws in New York, it’s your job to ensure that your tint is legal in your state!

4. Do You Already Have Tint on Your Windows?

If your car already has window tint film installed that film will need to be removed before any new tint film can be applied. You should always have a professional tint installer remove your old tint for you to ensure that it’s done correctly. There is a small charge for the removal of old tint, but it’s worth the cost to have it done quickly and effectively without damaging your car windows or rear defroster.

It is also possible to apply tint film to factory tinted windows HOWEVER this results in a darker tint which may not be legal in all states! If you have factory tinted windows and want to darken your tint by adding tint film it’s best to pay your installer a visit to discuss your needs.

5. Where Do You Want Tinted?

Yes, we know you want your windows tinted but which windows and what percentage of tint do you want on those windows? For example, some vehicle owners decide not to tint their windshield because they are afraid that it will interfere with their ability to see while driving. These drivers wind up getting only the remaining windows of their car tinted. This isn’t necessary when you use a high-quality window tint installation company. When installed properly and with the right degree of tint, it’s perfectly safe to tint your windshield as well as your other windows. Still concerned? You can opt to have a clear UV tint on your windshield and tint the rest of your windows with a darker tint. It’s all up to you (and your state law of course!) so many sure that you put some thought into what you want before you make your window tinting appointment!

Cheap Window Tinting Orlando: Buyer Beware, You Get What You Pay For

Cheap Window Tinting Orlando

Cheap window tinting Orlando businesses are a dime a dozen, but as a consumer, it’s crucial that you research a company before you entrust them with your business. Why? Because when a deal seems too good to be true, it usually is. When it comes to window tinting in Orlando, you get what you pay for.

Does that mean that you have to pay a fortune to get your car windows tinted professionally? Not necessarily. Although cheap window tinting Orlando services should be a warning sign, quality services like those we offer at Orlando Flying Window Tinting are a great investment for a reasonable price.

What can go wrong when you hire the cheapest company around? Let’s take a look…

Why You Shouldn’t Pay For Cheap Window Tinting Orlando Services

Because Window Tinting Can Be Illegal…

Here in Florida, there are specific laws that govern the percentage of tint that can be applied to car windows. These laws also differ based on other states.

What does this have to do with cheap window tinting Orlando businesses?

Well, quality businesses that utilize professional window tint supplies aren’t only familiar with the law in our state, but they only utilize products that are produced under the specific requirements of the state law. Here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting, we utilize Llumar tints and Llumar only allows a trusted dealer network to utilize their products.

When you hire the cheapest window tinting company in Orlando, however, you are hiring a company with questionable knowledge of state laws and individuals who utilize the cheapest products on the market. How do we know that? Because it’s simply impossible to offer quality products at such low prices. So, when you have these companies tint your car windows you not only run the risk of having illegally tinted windows, but you are also knowingly paying someone to install a less than optimal product in your car. Why would you do that?

Use a reputable installation company who use reputable and quality products and you won’t run the risk of being pulled over by the police for having illegally tinted windows that don’t pass statewide tinting laws. Avoid those fines by trusting someone who knows exactly what they are doing with your window tint installation.

Because You Can Get Ripped Off…and You Probably Will

When hiring the cheapest company available for a service like window tinting you already know that you’re not getting the best product on the market, but you’re not getting the best service either. We don’t just mean that you will notice imperfections with your tint installation, but you might just get taken for a ride.

For a company that offers any type of service to be considered trustworthy, it’s important to be able to establish their reputation. One of the best ways to do this is to look at just how long that business has been serving the community. Small fly by night companies that are able to offer such incredibly low prices are always young businesses. These businesses set up shop and lure you in with the best prices only to leave you with a subpar product while they take off with your money. Try going back to get the problem fixed or to ask for a refund and you’ll find that the company no longer exists.

How can you avoid this? Research the company that you are hiring to tint your windows and be prepared to spend a little more. Here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting, we have been providing the Orlando area with quality window tinting services since 1987! As a family operated business with roots in our community, it’s important to us to provide quality service – our reputation and our livelihood depend on it!

You Won’t Get a Guarantee

When you hire those cheap window tinting Orlando services you will pay minimal fees for minimal service and that means that you aren’t likely to get any type of guarantee on the product or service you pay for. Why don’t these guys offer a guarantee? Firstly because they know that the products they are using are of poor quality. Offering a guarantee on a low-quality product would only result in that company losing money! Secondly, these companies know that their labor service is subpar. Rushing through installations and using technicians with minimal experience means that your window tinting will have bubbles, creases, and look just terrible. If these guys offered you a guarantee on this type of service they’d never make a profit!

When you hire a truly professional company like Orlando Flying Window Tinting, however, you not only get a quality product and quality service, but you also get a guarantee. That’s right, we offer ALL of our clients a lifetime warranty through Llumar window tint. That guarantee, backed by Llumar, means that if, at any time, your window tint becomes compromised, you are fully covered. So why wouldn’t you invest in a quality product the first time and get a lifetime warranty too?

9 Reasons Florida Window Tinting is a Must

Florida Window Tinting

Florida window tinting isn’t a new concept in the Sunshine State, but why do so many cars have that mysterious dark tint on their windows? There are actually a number of really great reasons why so many car owners tint their auto windows and today we want to talk about nine of them.

9 Reasons Florida Window Tinting is a Must For Your Car

1. Skin Protection

Many people don’t consider the risks of sun exposure when they’re driving around town in their car. The truth is, though, that even when you’re cruising town with your windows up, the sun’s harmful UV rays can still damage your skin. Using professional Florida window tinting like the LlLlumar Air Blue films we offer here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting, protects against these harmful ultraviolet rays. How much of those UV rays are filtered out with this type of film? An impressive 99.9%! We even carry clear UV protection film so that you can protect your family from dangerous UV rays without the privacy tint that many families find a little too out of character for them!

2. Protection For the Interior of Your Car

Just as UV rays can damage delicate skin, they can also damage the interior of your car. Whether we’re talking about cracks in your leather or fading on your dashboard, those UV rays are destructive. By investing in window tinting films like those we mentioned above, you can extend the life of the interior components of your car and that means that your vehicle will hold its value much longer too!

3. Less Wear and Tear on Your Car’s AC!

We all know that the weather here in Florida can be unbearable in the Summertime, but do you know just how much wear and tear it has on your car’s AC system to run it at the max constantly? Did you know that using a metallized window tint helps to block heat? That means that when you are running all of those errands during hot summer days, hopping in and out of your car, your car remains cooler for much longer and you don’t have to crank your AC quite as hard.

4. Florida Window Tinting Can Eliminate Signal Interference

Here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting, our premium line of tints feature nano-technology that is designed to eliminate signal interference. That means that whether you are using your GPS, your smartphone (hands-free, of course!), satellite radio, keyless entry, or any other device, you are going to get a clearer signal and better reception than you did without tinted windows!

5. Glare Reduction

Glare isn’t just painful on the eyes, but it’s dangerous for drivers. You know the feeling, driving up the road only to be met with the glare of the evening sun as it starts to set. You squint, you flail for the visor, you grab for your sunglasses, you do everything you can to remain in control while you’re driving. Adding tint to your car windows, however, can filter out a significant amount of that glare allowing you to keep control of your car at all times while you are on the road.

6. Reduction of Light Sensitivity

There are plenty of reasons why people suffer photophobia or light sensitivity, and if you are one of these people then you know just how painful it can be to be met head-on by the midday sun. If you have a medical condition that results in your eyes being exceptionally sensitive to light exposure then window tinting shouldn’t be an option for you, it should be a necessity. By filtering out light through window tints, you will find yourself squinting less, your eyes will water less, and you’ll have much fewer migraines when you get back into the comfort of your shaded home!

7. Window Tint Offers Privacy

Most people don’t think about their privacy when they’re driving down the road in their car, but for some people maintaining their privacy is a necessary part of their life. Whether you’re an actor trying to take a little family time away from the fans, a high profile attorney heading to dinner after a big day in court, a well-known athlete just trying to get home after the game…tinted windows offer the privacy that you need. By eliminating the ability for others to peer into your car as you drive by, you avoid those aggressive fans, paparazzi, and news anchors (or at least prevent them from getting a candid photo!) as you go about your everyday life.

8. Scratch Resistance

The Florida window tinting options that we offer here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting are designed to add an extra scratch-proof layer to your windows. This means that not only do you get privacy and protection against the heat and glare, but you also have an added layer over your window glass to eliminate the chance of smaller scratches destroying the integrity of your car windows.

9. Security

If you have a habit of leaving your gadgets in view inside your car or if you just installed a new top of the line stereo in your car and you want to ensure that it stays there, window tinting is a great security feature. With darker window tints, it’s next to impossible for anyone to scout out your car as a target because criminals can’t see what you have inside or, indeed, how protected your car is against theft. Even with the lighter window tints, it’s much more difficult for criminals to see what you have inside your car. With these lighter tints, thieves have to get up close and personal with your car to scout out their target and by the time they get that close to your tinted windows, they have already drawn more attention to themselves than they want.
