So you decided to tint your car windows, and we dare say that you must be enjoying the fantastic benefits car window tinting offers. But, like many other things, your window tint won’t last forever.
Over time, your tint’s effectiveness reduces, and you’ll need to replace it. Now, you’re probably asking, “how do I tell it’s time to replace my car window tint?” Here are tell-tale signs to watch out for.
#1. The tint is fading
As window tint shields you and the interior of the car from the effects of UV rays, it bears the brunt of the damage, with its pigment or dye breaking down as a result. Although compared to cheap, low-quality materials, premium tints take a long time before they fade or change color. If you notice your window tint fading or having a purple hue, it’s time to get a replacement.
#2. You notice bubbles
Take a look at the windows. Do you notice bubbles? Then it’s time to replace the tint. Aside from detracting from the beauty of the tint, and hence, your car, bubbles indicate a loss of adhesion, which makes the tint less effective.
Bubbles and blisters mostly form when your window tinting begins to age. Sometimes, the bubbles may be caused by an improper installation. Other reasons include exposure to extreme temperatures, such as heat, or the use of inferior window film and adhesive.
#3. There is damage to your car's interior
One of the benefits of window tinting is an interior protected from cracking and fading. If your car interior begins to fade and the beautiful leather starts to crack, your window tinting could have lost its effectiveness, necessitating a replacement.
#4. Peeling tint edges and scratches
Peeling that occurs days or a few months after installation is probably the result of an amateur job. Sometimes, it may be natural wear and tear due to frequent exposure to heat or low-quality materials. Whatever the cause of the defects, replace your window tint immediately before the issues become bigger.
