Have you been thinking about getting your car windows tinted? It’s time to get off the fence and get it done, because there are more perks than you can imagine.
Getting those windows tinted isn’t just about improving your ride’s aesthetics, although that’s certainly part of it. It’s also much more affordable than you might think.
Every state has different requirements for window tinting. Some states allow darker, more complete tints than others. No matter where you live in the country, however, it’s a fantastic, safe, and budget-friendly way to make an improvement on your vehicle.
Here are four reasons you should tint your windows — beyond looking good.
1. Sun Protection
You probably know you should apply an SPF of at least 30 to every bit of exposed skin before you leave the house, and reapply every two hours, even if it’s cloudy. But how often does any of us really do all that?
While window tinting is nowhere as effective as SPF, it does provide some sun protection — and some is better than none. Melanoma is serious business, and every bit of UV protection helps.
2. Increased Privacy
This was the original purpose of tinting, but it’s become lost in the shuffle somehow. If you’re regularly stuck in stopped traffic and don’t want the eyes of everyone else on the road checking you out, tinting is a good way to avoid it. It’s worked for celebrities for years.
It also keeps your reputation in check if you want to rock out to the radio.
3. It Improves Re-Sell or Trade-in Value
Tinting is something that’s desirable, and it instantly increases the re-sell or trade-in value of your vehicle. In a way, it will pay for itself, because you’ll likely be able to ask for an increase that matches what you paid for the tinting. When that’s the case, there’s no reason not to get your windows tinted. Plus, you’ll be paying it forward to the next person who owns your car.
4. It Might Reduce Car Break-ins
Thieves are opportunists, and they just can’t resist making a move if they see a purse, shopping bags, or laptop in the backseat. Don’t tempt them! Getting your windows tinted is a great deterrent to make thieves move onto greener pastures.
However, do keep in mind that not all Phoenix tinting services are created equal. Choose a reputable company and you’ll never have to worry about wrinkles, peeling, or chipping down the road.
