Performance HQ provides customers with various custom vehicle modifications that enhance vehicle performance, audio quality, visual effect and cosmetic updates and repairs. One of the most common requests we assist with is window tinting, mostly for those who are interested in the visual appeal and who do not know all the ways tinted windows actually improves their ride.
Window tinting may seem like a young man’s game, but there are many reasons tinting windows will keep you safe and save money. At Performance HQ, our San Antonio custom car shop uses quality products on the vehicle you love to protect you, your family, and, of course, your car. Here are the top five reasons you should consider tinting your windows today.
Tinted windows are safer in the event of a car accident
The sounds of a collision often end with broken glass. Windows and windshield are particularly vulnerable, but the extra coating of window tint, no matter the shade, strengthens the glass and keeps it in place. Though the glass may still break, the shards are less likely to come apart from the window and enter the cabin to harm passengers.
Window tinting stops glare
The Texas sun is a lovely view, but it can create vicious glare for drivers. Glare is dangerous driving hazard, and sun visors and even some sunglasses don’t do enough to stop or reduce the glare. The only option to remedy this hazard is tinting windows. You’ll notice a difference at even the lowest shade, so any window tinting will bring relief to glare-suffering drivers.
Save money on interior and upholstery maintenance
UV light penetrates your car windows and windshield, which damages and fades your interior. Window tinting blocks those harmful rays from attacking your dashboard, seats and steering wheel. You’ll notice a cooler temperature too, since the UVA and UVB rays bring the heat. Not to mention that UV rays are also harmful to human skin, and for those who love the drive, window tinting is another way to help keep them safe.
Protect valuables with tinted windows
Between adventures, parties, commutes, family trips and everyday driving, people use their cars for many reasons, and some people nearly live in their vehicles. With all this driving, we bring items into and out of our cars constantly, and some things, such as GPS and navigational units, DVDs and DVD players, tablets, e-readers, computers and all kinds of valuable items, find permanent homes in the car. Prying eyes scan vehicle interiors for quick and expensive objects that can be nabbed quickly. Darkened windows help to conceal any valuables and personal items stored or left in the vehicle, preventing break-ins.
In addition to the safety and money-saving reasons, window tinting just plain looks good. Though it seems like a common modification for teenagers and young drivers who want to look like street extras in The Fast and the Furious movies, adding window tint on most cars adds and enhances a luxury feel. And because there are different grades of window tint, you can choose the shade that most suits your vehicle.
