What You Should Know After Windshield Tinting
The first few days after having your windshield tinted are critical if you want it to look pristine. Even the smallest mistakes can damage a perfect application. So if you’ve just had your windshield tinting in Winslow, AZ done by Diamond Auto Glass, here are a few things you might want to know.
Window Tint Bubbles Disappear
One of the worst things you can see after your windshield tinting services appointment is bubbling of the film. However, this is not really a cause for concern as these tint bubbles are usually caused by moisture and will evaporate within a few days.
Avoid the Car Wash
Although tint is generally applied on the inside of your vehicle, going through a car wash can blast both cold and hot temperatures on your windshield. The moisture can not only impede the drying process but also cause bubbling mentioned above. Wait a few days until your car window tinting has completely dried before having your car washed.
Allow the Film to Dry
Keep in mind that the tint is most vulnerable while the adhesives dry, so refrain from tampering with the tint during this period. This takes patience and it can be much more taxing during the cold and rainy months, which can prolong the cure time to as long as a month. If you are not doing so purely for cosmetic purposes, it is best to have window tinting repair or similar services done during the warm, dry months.
A Few Tips
You’d need to wait for three to four days after window tinting replacement before you can roll down your windows. So generally speaking, your window tint should be completely dry within four days of application. Make sure to ask the installer about the timeline after it is complete as it may vary depending on the weather.
