Professional SLC Tint Over DIY Kits: Time, Money, Service, Value

Friday, January 21st, 2022

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the basics on why it pays to go with professional window tinting services rather than DIY kits. While there are certain areas of our world where do-it-yourself projects are entirely realistic and will save you both time and money, tinting your vehicle’s windows is simply not one of these – for several reasons.

At Pro Tint, we’re proud to offer the best window tinting services in Salt Lake City and other parts of Utah, ensuring that your tint is of the highest quality possible for any of your needs. While you may see a variety of window tinting kits out there, there are several reasons why we strongly recommend steering clear of these and working with our professionals for the ultimate value and experience. Here are a few other major reasons why our services stand head and shoulders above any of these DIY kits in terms of your time, money and other factors.

Saving Time and Money

While many people carry out DIY jobs specifically to save time or money, you’re highly unlikely to manage either with a DIY window tinting kit. While their directions may claim they’re “made for beginners” or some similar language, this is almost always false.

Rather, it’s a virtual guarantee that you’ll spend more time on a DIY kit than you would simply waiting for our team to perform professional window tint installation. Even if you’re following the directions perfectly, these kits require great care – and it’s very easy to make mistakes that set you back.

And down similar lines, even a single mistake made during this process could cost you significantly. Window tint is an intricate product, one that requires care and skill to install. Instead of relying on your own set of non-professional skills, lean on pros who know what they’re doing – it will save you money in the long run as well.

Service Guarantees

Another major benefit of working with the pros for your window tint is a guarantee of service. If your tint has any kind of issue after being installed by our pros (an extremely rare occurrence to begin with), we’ll immediately resolve it for no additional cost as part of our guarantee to you.

With a DIY kit, on the other hand, you’re simply out of luck if something goes wrong. You’ll likely have to buy a new kit and start all over, and that’s as long as you haven’t damaged the vehicle or windows in any way.

No Lost Value

Speaking of damage to your vehicle, it will never take place when you work with professional window tinters. That’s in stark contrast to DIY kits, which involve several components that may damage windows or other vehicle areas if they aren’t handled properly.
