So, you have made the right decision and decided to head to get your windows tinted. Not only will you get a bang for your back, but also a great return on every penny you invested in the entire process. Window tints preserve your car’s interior’s longevity and looks. As it protects them from fading. They also protect you personally as they limit the harmful effect of UV and infrared rays that they can have on your skin. Not to mention, window tints keep your car cool, both metaphorically and literally, as they give your car a stylish and aesthetic look while also lowering its temperature. But there are a few things you need to consider before heading to get your tints installed. The most important of these things yet often neglected, is your window tint warranties.
Head to The Right Place
First of all, you need to know where you are heading for your professional tint installation. Only reputable and professional car shops or tint experts offer high quality products and a high quality installation process. They seal the deal with warranties both on the tint film itself, and on the process of installation, making you guarantee the level of service that they offer and the help you may need along the line. Pop-up shops are a bad idea to guarantee your warranty is being fulfilled, as by the time you may need a fix, they might have just packed up and left.
So, make sure to do your proper and thorough research, and do not be afraid to ask your tint expert or car shop for their warranties and terms and conditions to guarantee your rights and make an informed decision. You can consult a tint expert when it comes to making your decision.
Know What Warranties Usually Cover
Usually, tint experts, providers, and car shops offer warranty policies that cover the manufacturer’s defects. Among these defects are delamination, adhesive failure, glazing, cracking, peeling, unusual discoloration, bubbling or any sign of premature deterioration. Some are also so confident in their abilities that they offer warranty policies for the process of the application itself or any damage resulting from it.
Can window Tint Warranties be Voided?
Simple answer, yes they can. On normal occasions, the warranty given lasts for a long time; some tinting services offer warranties for commercial tints that last up to 10 years. But they can only remain valid and benefit you as long as you abide by the terms and conditions. For example, your warranty coverage is considered null and void if the damage was caused by your usage, like abrasive cleaning, or improper film care.
It is also important to note that warranties do not cover glass breaking nor any damage to the actual glass that then causes damage to the tints. The warranty is for the tints, not the glass, and it serves the purpose of assurance for the customer so that they would not worry about paying extra for maintenance and upkeep.
