Window Tinting

At T&T Window Tinting, we strive to provide a swift and hassle-free tinting experience for your vehicle. We operate by appointment, and the tinting process for most vehicles typically takes just one hour.

Film Removal

Removing old window film can be a time-consuming task. Occasionally, the film peels off cleanly, leaving minimal adhesive residue on the glass. However, some cases, especially on rear windows with defroster/antenna lines, can be more challenging.

While no tint shop can guarantee that defroster/antenna lines won’t be damaged, they remain unharmed throughout the process around 90% of the time.

Window Film Options

Our window film options are available in three different degrees of darkness: 35%, 20%, and 5%. These degrees of tint offer various benefits while adhering to state-specific regulations.

State Tinting Regulations

Tinting laws vary by state, dictating how dark window tint can be applied and on which parts of the vehicle. In Virginia, for example:

  • Front doors on all vehicles are allowed up to 50% tint.
  • Passenger cars can have up to 35% tint on the back windows.
  • Trucks, Vans, and SUVs have more flexibility, typically allowing darker tinting for rear windows.

Our selection of 35%, 20%, and 5% tints allows you to choose the appropriate level of darkness while ensuring compliance with Virginia’s tinting regulations.

Choosing the Right Window Film for Your Car: Metalized vs. Non-Metalized Tints

When it comes to enhancing your car’s comfort and protection, it’s essential to understand the key differences between the two primary types of window film: Metalized and Non-Metalized tints.

Metalized Films
These films offer a subtle metallic sheen that varies in intensity. What sets them apart is their exceptional ability to repel heat and harmful UV rays, which are notorious for causing upholstery and dashboard damage. Metalized films act as a shield, reflecting the sun’s rays away from your vehicle.
Non-Metalized Films
While Non-Metalized films also provide heat and UV protection, they offer a more understated appearance with no reflective sheen. Their flat look complements various vehicle styles while still safeguarding your car’s interior from the sun’s harmful effects.

Caring for Your New Window Tint Film

To ensure the longevity and quality of the window tint, we recommend following these tips for window maintenance.

Window Operation
After tinting, keep your windows rolled up for 48 hours to allow the film to properly adhere to the glass, preventing peeling when they are finally rolled down.
Drying Period
Initially, your tinted windows may appear cloudy, hazy, or develop water pockets. This is normal and part of the drying process. Squeegeeing can only remove so much moisture between the film and glass. The remaining water will evaporate, and the drying time depends on sunlight exposure, with sunny weather speeding up the process.
Cleaning
Wait a couple of days before cleaning your tinted windows to avoid loosening the film. Use a soft paper towel and a non-ammonia cleaner (avoid blue-colored cleaners with ammonia). Suitable options include Vinegar Windex (Green), citrus-based Windex, or tint-safe cleaners like Eagle One’s 20/20. You can also use a mixture of soap and water or vinegar and water.
Seat Belt Chips
Be cautious when exiting the car and removing the seat belt to avoid causing chips or damage to the window film, especially when the seat belt snaps against the glass. Such damage is not covered by the warranty.
Dot Matrix Issues
Many modern vehicles have black ceramic dotted edges that window film may not adhere to, creating a whitish appearance. After the film dries, you can gently press around the edges from the inside to remove air bubbles. For thicker dots at the top of the rear window, the film may be trimmed back for better adhesion. If you have concerns, contact us for solutions.
Scratches
Older vehicles may have scratches on windows that roll down due to debris between the gasket and glass. Tinting can make these scratches more visible. Unfortunately, there’s no remedy for pre-existing scratches. Some debris may also scratch the film, and this is not covered by our warranty. In rare cases, if you replace the gaskets, we may replace the tint once free of charge. However, gasket replacement is the most effective solution.

Used TNT for tinting the windows for both our cars. We first got our Model 3 windows tinted and at the time (3+ years ago) they were the best price around. The windows still look fresh as the first day but we thought we might get a price better somewhere else for our Model Y so we shopped around. Pointless! They still had the best price by far (some shops quoting us 2x the price!). With the great experience and service we had and the best price, this became an easy decision. They estimated 1.5-2 hours and let us schedule a convenient day/time. Since it's not near us, we decided to stay nearby and try a bar across the street. They finished up just under 1.5 hours and the results were wonderful. There were a couple very small bubbles near the bottom of two windows they said would be gone in a few days and they were. Very satisfied with the service and results and the price is unbeatable. Would recommend to anyone and would return if needed without checking around again!

Got the two front windows tinted to match the factory in the back of my Jeep Grand Cherokee L. Thirty minutes into an episode of Ozark they were done. Had time to make a Costco haul and pick up the kids from school. Thanks guys!

Good work, good price. I showed up without an appointment and Javier took the time to give me a good honest quote. I got to see their work, several cars in the shop and in the parking area before I made any decisions. He made me an appointment a couple days out and they stuck to it. They have a very convenient location, easy to get in and out, plenty of parking, and you can wait on site. I brought them an old 60's Wagoneer with lots of manual crank windows and they took care of it in less than an hour. Thanks Javier and team. Good business experience.
