Common questions regarding window tinting
  • Q: How long does it take to tint a vehicle?

    At Tinting Motors we respect your busy schedule and understand that your time is most valuable. We do not rush through our tinting process, however, because we take pride in our work and insist on the highest quality standards. Accordingly, the tinting process takes approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours, depending on the year, make, and model of your vehicle.

  • Q: What can I use to clean my windows after they are tinted?

    It is important to keep your tinted windows clean in order to maintain visibility at all times, for safety as well as aesthetical purposes. You must wait 3-10 days for the window film to set before attempting to clean the windows. Use a soft paper towel that will not leave any streaks or marks on your delicate glass window. Any ammonia-free glass cleaner will work well on your tinted windows. But remember, make sure that your glass cleaner must not contain ammonia.

  • Q: Why does my new tint have water marks in it?

    Water marks occur frequently in association with various weather conditions; they are, however, temporary thanks to the professional standards of care employed here at Tinting Motors. Typically, it takes three to ten days for window film to cure fully, depending on the ambient weather conditions (e.g., humidity, precipitation, etc.)
