Having earned the trust of many dealerships in the area we have become known for both our exceptional quality of work and remarkable professionalism. One of the contributing factors is our dedication to only using top of the line films that are backed by a lifetime warranty that is valid in all 50 states, where ever Suntek film is installed.

Choosing to offer only top-quality films does increase initial costs but we see the difference in the number of customers that return to us & refer their friends and family.

Suntek Window Film is the most advanced film on the market offering superior heat rejection, UV protection and enhanced privacy. All Suntek Window Films are exclusively manufactured in the United States at their world-class facility in Martinsville, Virginia.

Important Things to Know Before You Tint

Choosing an installer/ location to have your windows tinted may seem like a cut & dry decision but there are many factors to think about before you decide.

1. WHAT TYPE OF FILM IS USED?

Choosing the right type of film is one of the most important factors when it comes to the lifetime of your installation. Over time a cheap film will turn purple, begin to crack, bubble, fade and peel. This not only effects the appearance of your vehicle, but it also increases the cost when you need to get your windows re-tinted in the future. Most installers will charge between $50 - $200 just to remove the cheap film and adhesive. A good film will last the lifetime of your vehicle without changing.

2. WHAT TYPE OF WARRANTY IS OFFERED?

Choosing a brand that offers a lifetime warranty is just as important as the film itself. If the company or installer only offers a 5-year warranty, then what does that say about the film they are using? We offer a lifetime warranty on all installations. This means that should your film be defective and begin to fade, crack, bubble, or peel we will gladly replace it at no cost to you for the time that you own the vehicle.

3. ENVIRONMENT

If you choose the right type of film with a lifetime warranty then you need to make sure the environment is kept clean, dust free, and separate from other automotive services. The smallest particle of dust, dirt, or hair becomes very visible once the film is applied. Be cautious of mobile tinters.. Although their skills can be just as good as those who work in a shop, they have no control over the environment. Regardless of how good they are or how many references they carry it is essential to tint in a clean and dust free environment. Here at Highline Customs, we take pride in the cleanliness of our shop. We take all measures to ensure that dust, dirt, and other particles do not come between the glass and the film; though a small dust speck here or there is to be expected. We will inspect your vehicle before, during, and after the installation with you to make sure you leave with a flawless installation.

4. WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE INSTALL

You will need to leave your window up for 3-5 days. This allows the film to begin the curing process. Most modern frameless windows have a “kick-down” feature. You do not need to worry about this during the curing process, as we will compensate for that when we install the film. There will be moisture in between the film and the glass. This moisture is soaked into the adhesive and will draw together into small water bubbles. These opaque water bubble will evaporate out over time. We’ve seen it take up to 4 weeks for total evaporation.
