In the punishing desert climate of the Valley, window tinting is essential. Mesa, AZ drivers greatly benefit from the protective features of window tinting, from heat reduction and UV ray blockage that becomes vital during those long summertime commutes to work on the 60 to increased privacy and upholstery protection. However, window tinting eventually needs to be replaced after taking a beating.
When to Replace the Window Tinting on Your Mesa, AZ Vehicle
There are certain signs that your window tinting is no longer performing at its best and needs to be replaced rather than repaired. We’ve outlined a few of these indicators below.
The edges of the window tinting on your Mesa, AZ vehicle will start to peel once the adhesive breaks down, when tint becomes brittle and old. You’ll likely hear a sound like paper crumpling when you roll your windows up or down.
Air Pockets and Bubbles
Whether they develop due to improper application, rolling the windows down too soon, or over time, air pockets are unsightly and reduce the effectiveness of your tint. It’s also illegal under state law to have window tint with air pockets that interfere with your ability to see clearly.
Scratches and Scrapes
Scratches are a part of the normal wear and tear on window tinting. In Mesa, AZ however, our bright and sunny climate can cause minor cuts and scratches in the tint to expand quickly.
If your tint shows these signs, don’t hesitate to replace it. Failing to replace your tint can be dangerous as it can reduce your driving visibility, putting you and your loved ones at risk when you’re out on the road.
