Car Window TintingHow the Window Tinting Process Works

The length of the window tinting process will vary based on the size of your vehicle. On average, the window tinting process for all the windows on the car can take anywhere from two to four hours to complete. If you are only having your tow front door windows tinted, you can expect that to take around thirty to forty minutes.

The window tinting process begins with cleaning the windows both inside and outside. The film is then cut to size to match the car window. Our expert installer will place the film on the window and use a squeegee to remove all bubbles and wrinkles while checking to ensure a perfect fit. While this part of the process takes less than a day, the window tint will need to cure for about three days in ideal weather conditions. Do not roll up or roll down the windows during this time.

Factors such as humidity and temperature can affect the curing time, which is why certain times of the year are better than others for window tinting.

Why Spring and Fall are Great Times for Window Tinting

At Three Rivers Auto Glass, we recommend having your windows tinted in the spring or the fall. These two seasons have low humidity and mild temperatures that allow the tint to properly adhere to the window. In the spring season, rain and humidity can become an issue, and hotter temperatures may occur in the fall season, but generally, these are great seasons for window tinting.
