As an investment in your automobile, car window tint is always the right answer. More and more motorists have taken up window tinting as a fail-safe all-round improvement to their vehicle’s safety, look, practicality and maintenance. With the addition of style, tints protect the car’s interiors from fading, and the drivers and passengers from the heat along with shielding them against life-threatening overexposure to UV and infrared radiation. With their increasing interest in making the right move and getting their cars’ windows tinted, there are a few things to consider including an often overlooked factor which is deciding on the best time to get your windows tinted.
When is the best time to have your car windows tinted?
To give you some context, some may consider that this question is a silly one, and that it does not matter when or what time of year you get your car windows tinted, but to the surprise of many, it does matter. There is actually a very good window tint season.
Why does window tint matter?
Tinting car windows requires a meticulous professional application process that is very much affected by the elements. For instance, the amount of time it takes the adhesive material on any car window tint film to dry can take up to 3 to 30 days in order to fully dry or “cure” and laminate. This pretty open window is dependent upon weather conditions. The heat, the cold, the rain, the wind, and the humidity among many factors affect the application and lamination process and contribute to its seamless success or failure.
So when should I get my car’s windows tinted? what is the window tint season?
Given all what we said before, the most optimum time to get your tints done and over with is during the spring or the fall seasons or when the weather is most stable
As a rule of thumb, it is best to avoid any weather extremes when first applying the tints. Spring and fall usually have moderate to low humidity levels and stable temperatures; both of these circumstances help with the application process.
However, if you are in the summer or winter seasons, you do not need to wait it out or despair. Although it is not the best situation, you could still get your windows tinted in these seasons but with special preparations. Which is why it is best to consult a tint expert or your preferred car shop to help with the complexities of the conditions of installation.
While the summer’s humidity levels can lengthen the curing time it takes for the adhesive material to fully dry and may affect the application process, the heat can also contribute to a fast drying process, all depending on the conditions of course.
And despite many motorists avoiding the winter for tinting their cars because it is not a sunny season or in fear or the cold temperatures lengthening the curing process, many car shops offer crazy sales and deals specifically for that reason. So, if you go to a professional tint expert, you may get a great deal and the installer will make it his mission to guarantee you a smooth installation despite any weather circumstances.
