Window Tinting

Auto Salon at Leschi offers window tinting service. Often times, you may own or have bought a used car that wasn’t ordered with tinted windows. Window tint allows you privacy and interior protection from heat and UV rays. So, why apply tinting film to your existing windows and windshield ?


Window tinting our vehicles is great because it blocks thermal rays that overheat your car interior. We’ve all had the feeling of being slow-cooked in our own drivers seat. Thermal rejection film blocks those pesky thermal rays so you can drive comfortably without blasting the AC and wasting gas and energy.


UV rays are a known danger of the sun, resulting in sun burns and skin cancer. We spend a lot of time in our cars, but for some reason the average person doesn’t think UV exposure counts while we’re on the road. It does, however, and though some vehicles’ factory windows block some UV rays, you’ll need UV blocking window tint for 100% protection in most cases.


Though not designed for vehicle security, window tint adds a layer of protection between the inside of your vehicle and a car thief. Typically thieves can quickly smash a side window, gain entry, or snatch valuables. If your windows are tinted, the glass is not only harder to break, but broken glass remains in one solid piece attached to the film. Car thieves don’t usually have a lot of time on their hands, and will probably buzz off rather than wrestle with a sheet of shattered glass and window film.


Glare from a half-set sun is distracting, and while you fumble with the flip-down mirror/shade you’re running risk of an accident. Window tint can cut glare so you can enjoy late afternoon drives and keep your eyes on the road.

So the next time you think of vehicle window tinting, remember it’s not just for looks. Consider all the functional benefits of window tinting.  – though it is pretty functional when it comes to looking cool. Auto Salon at Leschi provides the highest quality film and installation in the Seattle area.
