Car window tint is popular for many reasons. It can help reduce the glare from the sun and city lights, protect your interior from UV damage, and help keep the inside of the car cool during sweltering summer weather. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what you should pay for tint without looking at several factors.
Type of Car
The type of car you have will have a big effect on the overall price. While you can find complete window tinting service for anywhere from $100 to $500, the cost can go up based on the car. The larger the vehicle, the more tint will need to be used. Sport utility vehicles will carry a higher cost than a compact car for this reason. Some styles of cars are harder to tint because of curved windows. If you have a VW Beetle you will likely have to pay more than if you have a Camry.
Type of Tint
The type of tint you choose will have a lot to do with the overall cost. If you are looking for a cheap tint just for aesthetic purposes, you will pay quite a bit less. Just remember you get what you pay for. The cheapest tints may not carry the UV protection, and may not have warranties against bubbling and peeling.
