Frequently Asked Questions about Window Tint King
1. What are the benefits of tinting my car’s windows?
Window film protects both you and your car from the damaging effects of the sun. With the ever-increasing breakdown of our ozone layer, dermatologists warn against over exposure to the sun. Polarized sunglasses protect the eyes, sunblock protects the skin, and window film protects the interior of your car.
Answer: Window film is made up of alternating layers of a polyester polymer and a laminating adhesive. Depending of the specific type of film, the polyester layer may be dyed, carbon fiber, ceramic, coated with an ultra violet inhibitor, or simply added for additional strength. Dyes are added to give the film it’s characteristic color.
3. What do I use to clean my tinted windows?
Answer: Warm water or a glass cleaner called Sprayway and a soft cloth. Never use Windex.
4. How dark can I legally tint my windows?
Answer: Oregon’s tint law is pretty clear, 35% is the legal limit of cars, vans and suv’s can go darker on the back of the vehicle. If you have a skin condition you can go darker with a doctors prescription. Click here to see what Oregon’s window tint laws are.
5. How long does it take to have tint installed?
Answer: Generally, about 4 hours depending on how many windows need to be tinted and to allow for clean up and dry time.
6. Can it ever be removed?
Answer: Yes. As a tint professional I can remove tint if you ever want to do that. For example, if you lease a car and want to remove it at the end of the lease before returning it to the dealership.
7. Why is your warranty better than everyone else’s?
Answer: I perform the warranty work for you and I deal with the factory instead of asking you to. My warranty covers labor and materials if the tint bubbles or falls off the glass for any reason. The warranty does not cover scratches, tears or any other damage. No film manufacturer provides a warranty for darker than legal limit installs.
8. Why do I see bubbled or purple tint on cars?
Answer: The tint is either very old or of poor quality. If our tint ever bubbles, we will replace it at no additional cost to you.

12. Will the tint damage my rear defroster?
Answer: No it will not. We tint right over the top of it. Damage from water to any electronics left in your vehicle is not covered. If you must leave a cell phone, laptop or any other electronic device in the vehicle, you must let us know before you leave your vehicle. We are not responsible for water damage if you decide to leave them.
13. Will you come to my location?
