How window tinting protects you

Window tints are one of the most underappreciated features in our cars. You may not think about it, but these tints are protecting us in so many ways. Window tints are especially designed to make our vehicles not only more stylish, but safer too. It doesn’t matter if its bright lights, the sun’s harmful rays or even prying eyes; your windows tints will keep it all out.

To learn about some of the ways that window tinting can protect you, please read the list below:

  • Window tint protects you from the sun’s harmful rays – Sunshine isn’t all bad, but it isn’t all good either. UV rays have been linked to cancers and many other skin conditions, so it is good to limit your exposure to the sun when possible. In this case, window tinting essentially acts like sunscreen. This will help keep you and your passengers safe and sunburn free. This UV protection will save not only you, but your interior as well. Sun fading is the most common way that car interiors deteriorate, and tinted windows will limit the damages your interior incurs from the sun’s rays.


  • Vehicles with tinted windows stay cooler – In the same way that they protect you from UV rays, your tinted windows will keep your car cooler in those blistering summer months. Nothing’s worse than getting into a car and burning your legs and arms on the seemingly 1000 degree interior. If you’re looking to avoid painful situations like this, then tinted windows are the answer to your problem.


  • Your cars windows will be less likely to shatter – Your new window tint will also add an additional layer of protection and structure to your cars windows. This will make them less likely to chip or shatter.

  • Window tint makes your vehicle more private – With tinted windows, you’ll no longer have to make uncomfortable eye contact with strangers when you’re stuck in traffic or parked at a red light. Now, of course there are laws regulating just how dark you can make your car’s windows. But we all love our privacy, and tinted windows are one sure way to make your car feel more private. 

  • Cars with tinted windows just look better – Ever wonder why nearly all the higher end cars have tinted windows? If you feel like investing in your car’s appearance, then tinted windows are the way to go. Not only are they functional, but they will leave your car with a sleek and newer look.

  • Window tint reduces the reflectivity of your car’s windows – Tinted windows not only make your car more comfortable, but they will make it safer too. Reflections on the road are a constant hazard, especially near sunset. Tinted windows reduce the reflectivity of your car’s windows, and will reduce the amount of bright reflections on our roads.

How to know if I need paint correction?

If you’ve noticed that your car’s paint job has started to look dingy, scratched and otherwise dull then you might want to consider taking it to get paint correction. Paint correction is a simple process that will remove the scratches, swirling, and imperfections from your car’s paint. It is not a necessary part of your car’s maintenance, but it will certainly improve the appearance of your vehicle astronomically.

How does paint correction work?

To remove minor scratches and other imperfections from your vehicle, a professional detailer will utilize an electric polisher, a microfiber buffing pad and a special cutting compound to level out the clear coat of your paint. It can be quite a slow process, as the detailer must take great care so as to not cut too deep. This could damage your car’s clear coat. But, when done correctly by a seasoned professional, this process can leave your car looking as good as new.

If you want to know if your car could benefit from paint correction then pay attention to these signs listed below.


  • Your car is noticeably scratched – Let’s start with an easy one. If you’re annoyed by the scratches on your vehicle, but it hasn’t gotten to the point where it needs a totally new paint job yet, then paint corrections might be just the answer that you’ve been looking for. Now, it is important to consider that paint correction will not work on all scratches. Because of the way paint correction works, it can only correct imperfections in the clear coat itself. Any major deep gouges require a different method of correction altogether.


  • You notice swirl marks when light shines on your car – These infamous swirl marks are a tell tale sign that your car could certainly benefit from a paint correction. These marks are caused by micro scratches that are usually caused from improper car washing techniques (often from using towels that are too rough). They are unattractive and especially noticeable on black vehicles. If your car has these swirl marks, then paint correction may be the solution for you. To prevent swirl marks on your car from coming back after receiving paint correction, be sure to alway use the right tools for the job when washing your car. And when in doubt, hire a professional detail service. 


  • You have an important event or are going to a car show – The best time to get a paint correction is just before a major event like a wedding, vacation or important work trip. A well executed paint correction can make even older model vehicles look nearly brand new. An even better reason to get a paint correction would be if you plan on entering your car into a show or competition. The attention to detail will certainly make your car stand out on the line up.
