Is all window tint the same?
Answer: Most definitely not! There are actually a ton of different film types out there, each with different looks, quality levels, heat rejection capabilities, etc. We’re very picky about the films we apply, and have all of them displayed for you to see and feel the differences. We definitely do not use any metalized film, so there will be no problems with your radio or cell phone reception.
Will my tint turn purple and bubble up?
Answer: Not Extreme Audio’s window tint jobs! We’ve all seen them, a car driving down the road with purple tint and the entire back window full of bubbles. When the glass is properly cleaned and prepped for the tint to be applied, and a quality film is used, this will NEVER happen. Just say no to dyed films and cheap tint jobs, it may look fine to start with, but don’t you want it to look just as good years down the road??
What if my tint does bubble, or peel, down the road?
Answer: In the HIGHLY unlikely case that this were to happen…”Never fear, Extreme Audio is here.” Ok so that was a bit cheesy, but seriously, all of Extreme Audio’s window tint is covered by a lifetime nationwide warranty. If you have a problem with it, it’s taken care of!
I just had my windows tinted, why do they look hazy and have spots?
Answer: Don’t worry, this is normal and definitely a temporary thing. There is a bit of moisture that will still be behind the window film, until the sun can bake and evaporate it out. This process can vary quite a bit based on the weather conditions for that time of year. If it’s hot and sunny it will probably only take a day or two, if it’s cold and overcast it could take quite a bit longer.
Will you come to my house or work to tint my vehicle?
Answer: Sorry, we don’t do “mobile” tinting. Window film needs to be applied in a calm, clean environment. Tinting a vehicle outdoors never turns out as nice as doing so in a clean indoor environment that keeps dust and debris from contaminating the film.
I’ve heard there are specific cleaners I have to buy for my windows?
Answer: While there are certainly some great window cleaning products out there (we love our 3M spray), there is not a specific type you have to get for window film. There is however one you should avoid, and that’s anything with ammonia in it. Many popular and great window cleaners have ammonia as one of the active ingredients, and this can definitely harm a film over time. As a rule of thumb, avoid the blue ones!
How long does it take to tint my windows?
Answer: This is something that will vary a good bit from one vehicle to another. Some have very curved rear glass which can take a bit longer to “shrink” to the proper size. Others may require excessive cleaning to make sure the film adheres properly. The best bet when possible is to plan on dropping the vehicle off with us. That way our technicians have all the time they need to be the perfectionists that they are, guaranteeing you’re car will look great!
Does the film go on the inside or the outside of my windows?
Answer: It goes on the inside of the glass, so it will be protected from the harsh outdoor environment. You may sometimes see a tint technician working on the outside of the glass, but that is only to assist in making sure the film is sized exactly right before permanently adhering it on the inside.
Does the film affect my rear window defrost?
Answer: Nope, the rear defrost will work just like it always did before. Since we use non metal films, if you also have your stereo antenna in the rear window, if will work just fine too
