Frequently Asked Questions

Drying Time

Your new window film will take about 3  to 5 days to fully dry, sometimes a lot longer depending on film brand,  type, and weather conditions.

Until this time your tinted windows may  appear hazy or lumpy, and it may seem to have water bubbles. Do not roll  your tinted windows down until dry!


Window film may be cleaned with a soft  clean cloth and alcohol based cleaner or plain water. Ammonia products  should not be used.

Black dotted edges

Most cars have a black ceramic ‘frit’  edge on the rear window. Sometimes this ceramic edge is straight and  flat, sometimes it will have a dotted edge. These black ceramic dots are  quite thick on most cars and prevent the window film from sticking to  the area between the dots.

This results in a whitish looking strip  trimming the glass. Typically this isn’t very noticeable, however some  cars have a wide band of dots trimming the top of the rear window.

This area is so wide that the whitish looking area created is more pronounced. Unfortunately, the effect is unavoidable.

Seat Belt Chips

Caution should be used when releasing  seat belts. Small chips can be made in the window film due to the seat  belt hitting the glass as it is released, THIS IS NOT COVERED BY  WARRANTY.


Though we strive for perfection in our  installations, due to the nature of the product, some degree of dust  contamination and or minor imperfections are present in every window  film application, also pre-existing flaws or scratches and metal  deposits on the glass are often much more noticeable after the windows  are tinted.

Small silvery looking spots or ‘metal  rubs’ on some windows are usually found in station wagons or other  utillity vehicles, and are caused by a metalic object (such as a baby  stroller handle) rubbing against the inner surface of the glass during  travel.

This rubbing deposits metal onto the  glass creating a silver or grey stain. Usually these these metal rubs  aren’t very noticeable and often aren’t noticed until the windows become  tinted.

Night Time Defogger Distortion

At night you may notice that the light from headlights will reflect  off of the defogger lines. This is caused by the film having to bend  slightly around the raised defogger line, it varies from car to car, and  there is nothing that can be done about it
