About Window Treatments And Paint Protection Film

Paint protection film has been around for a while, but in recent years, it has acquired a reputation in the automobile and window treatment industry for its advanced quality and high performance. However, while choosing suitable paint protection for your window or vehicle, you may have a ton of questions about the types of films available, functioning, cleaning methods, etc., but may find answers difficult to come by. 

To ensure you have all your doubts cleared and are armed with the most accurate information available, Tint Squad has answered some of the most frequently asked questions about window treatments and paint protection film.

1. How does paint protection film work?

Paint Protection is a clear film that is applied over the paint to protect it. It helps with scratches, rock chips, salt damage, etc.  It comes with self-healing properties, so when it gets damaged, the sunlight or heat from your motor activates the self-healing properties.  This layer of film will ensure your paint looks great!

2. Does the film go on the inside or outside?

It goes on the inside of the glass for all vehicles. Most houses have interior films, but the exterior film is also available for homes.

3. How do I clean my film after install?

To clean any window film, you MUST use something ammonia free and a soft cloth. If you use anything with ammonia, it voids your warranty.

4. How many days do I have to wait to roll down my windows?

That depends on the season. In the winter, we recommend five to seven days. In the spring/fall, we suggest three to four days and summer you can wait for around twenty-four hours.

5. Can I wash my car?

Yes, you can wash your car. It doesn’t affect your newly installed film at all.

6. Are all window films the same?

No, new technology in window film has come a long way. We now offer dye free films that give forty to eighty percent heat rejection. Carbon and ceramic films also give the best performance for their value.

7. Will tinting my home really make a difference?

Yes, most home window films give at least forty-five percent heat rejection, which saves on AC cost over the summer. Window film in the winter also helps in reducing heating cost by stopping the cold air from coming through the windows.
