What Is Solar Tint & How Can It Improve Your Car’s Appearance & Resale Value?
When you think of window tinting, you probably picture dark windows that make it tough to see inside the car. While that type of film is standard and highly effective for almost all drivers, it’s not the only one available. Solar tint is a great alternative to traditional car tinting options, but what is solar tint exactly? Let’s dive in.
What Is Solar Tint?
Solar tint is a type of window tinting film that blocks up to 99 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays, just like standard tinting film. But there’s a twist. Solar tint is almost completely clear. This means there’s no visual obstruction or change in the quality of your view out the windows no matter what the driving conditions are like.
Solar Tint and Your Car’s Appearance
Since solar tint is almost completely clear, it lets your car speak for itself. You’ll be able to maintain the clean and crisp lines you loved when you bought your ride without worrying about the way the film changes the impact of your paint job. But the benefits also reach inside your car.
The sun’s rays can fade even the most meticulously maintained interior. For cars with leather seats, this means dry and cracked surfaces and uncomfortable benches. For vinyl and cloth interiors, the color will fade and the material gets stiff and ages prematurely. The end result is a car you’re not proud of. Tinting film helps keep that fade to a minimum and reduces the buildup of heat inside the car, further reducing your risk of cracked interiors, warped plastic, and damaged seats.
It Even Improves Your Resale Value
When people buy cars, they look for units that they’re comfortable in. If your seats are cracked from the heat or the windows let in the full amount of sun and heat possible, it makes your car less tempting. With solar film, your car will be more comfortable for anyone behind the wheel. This makes it more tempting for buyers.
But even if you’re trading it in to a dealership, solar film can help you get a better price. Your interior will be in better shape and show less wear and tear than other models of the same year. When it looks nicer, it sells for a higher price.
