Professional Tint Over DIY Kits: Installation, Proper Tint, Legal Areas

There are many areas of our world where do-it-yourself (DIY) efforts are both commendable and practical, allowing various tasks or jobs to be completed without any need for spending money on a professional. However, there are also areas where pros are there for a reason, and DIY attempts may include some significant risks — and the world of car window tinting is a great example.

At Pro Tint, we’re proud to offer the very best window tinting services in Utah, carried out exclusively by quality tinting experts who have years of experience applying tint film to vehicles. While there are a number of different “DIY” window tinting kits out there, these come with some major drawbacks compared to simply working with our team of professionals. This two-part blog series will go over all the ways a professional tint is the superior way to go, from the long-term quality of the installation to your overall costs and more.

Installation Quality

It’s important to understand that vehicle window tint isn’t an area where trial and error is really an option. The job needs to be done right the first time, or you’ll end up with a film that doesn’t look good, doesn’t function well and may even start to peel or bubble up after a short period of time.

Simply put, a professional window tint installation is far superior to any DIY kit, because pros have seen it all before, know what they’re dealing with and have the experience to get the job done right. Your installation will be of much higher quality, setting you up with a baseline of quality moving forward.

No Window Damage Risks

When attempting DIY window tinting, you’re putting your windows at risk. If you’re not careful, you may end up with scratches or other damage to your vehicle’s glass. This is another area where a professional tint installation comes out on top — our team takes great care to avoid any window damage, using the best techniques and tools for the job.

The Right Tint Every Time

Another risk of the DIY route: Choosing the wrong window tinting product for your needs. Professionals at our shop guide you through the process of choosing the right window film, whether this is for privacy, heat rejection or some other reason. This ensures that you get exactly what you need, rather than having to compromise with something that may not work well for your situation.

Legal Understanding

In addition, our window tinting pros are always up to date on local laws or regulations regarding window tinting. If you attempt DIY tinting and run into any legal trouble, you’re on your own. With a professional installation, you can avoid any potential issues with the law.
