Window Tinting Services in Pensacola, FL
Window tinting offers a variety of advantages for your vehicle, home, or business. By reducing the sun exposure to the inside of your car or building, you reduce the amount of sun damage to your seats or furniture.
Darkened windows makes it harder for people to see inside your car or home, and reduces the visibility of any possessions that may be inside. Additional, window tinting also helps reduce energy costs, keeping you from running your heating or air conditioning as much due window tinting's reflective properties.

About Window Tinting
There are a lot of factors to consider when contracting a window tinting service for your vehicle, home, office, boat, or anything else with glass. We guarantee to give you the best value. This means that we may not be the CHEAPEST, but, I personally guarantee to deliver the best service, best installation and only the best and highest performing materials available and that makes us the best deal every time! Let’s examine some of those factors so that you will be informed and comfortable in making your decision
Tint does more than just shade the window! Technology has improved greatly, especially in the last decade and not all films are created equal. Higher-performing films typically come with a much greater cost and in some cases are harder to use and install. Some factors to pay attention to are the percentage of total heat rejection, infrared heat rejection, and also asking questions about what the film is made of and its expected lifespan. Even though some films may start off reducing a good amount of heat, they may begin to break down after exposure to the sun.
We realize that some people are on a budget. However, shopping for the lowest price is the last thing you want to do when selecting a window tinting company. Prices are usually dictated by multiple factors including the skill of the installer/installation, quality of service, brand of film, and performance of film installed. and even the local economy. Sadly, you can overpay. We see it all the time. Some tinters will deliver a decent install with basic-level films and charge top dollar. Although we feel this is unethical, it’s important for you to do your research and even meet PERSONALLY with your tinter and get a feel for them and their service!
Just as all window films are not created equal, the same holds true for the installation of window films. In any given market, there may be many registered window tinters or tinting companies and only a small handful that are expert level in their quality of installation. Some pride themselves on speed while the main qualities to look for are how clean and debris free is the installation? How clean are the cuts and lines? Is the gap on the edge of the window within a nice tolerance to the edge of the glass?
We offer several great lines of film.
It is my belief that we should only offer the best to our customers. And we do.
I also know that not everyone can afford some of our product lines and I don’t want anyone to have to settle and not get the most for their hard-earned money. So, we do have entry-level or economy priced packages. These packages may cost a few dollars more than what some other companies may offer, but they still come with our industry leading installation, warranty, and service!
What am I looking at? What does this “tint” do?
How is your film made? Is it going to last?
%TSER - The percentage of total solar energy rejected. This is a formulation of several factors and perhaps one of the main numbers to take into account when looking for a film that will actually reject solar energy before it enters your car, home, office space, etc. With higher quality films, this number will still be pretty high, even when a film is very light or even clear to the eye.
IRER - Infrared Energy Rejection. This is a broad measurement of the infrared heat that is measured. This number is generally less than SIRR because is is more broad.
SIRR - Selective Infrared Rejection. This measurement is the most popularly associated with the heat you feel coming through the window. Infrared heat accounts for over 50% of the heat you feel from the sun. If you are looking into this number in reference to a certain film, be certain to look and see which range they take their measurement between.
VLT - Visible Light Transmission. This is the amount of light that the film allows to pass through a window. A 5% VLT will allow 5% of the light to pass through, which will be a very dark film, and 90% VLT will allow almost all of the light and it will appear clear.
Visible Light Reflectance - Usually seen as reflectivity. Measured as the percentage of light that is reflected. In automotive film, it will be a gauge as to how reflective the film will appear from the outside of the vehicle. Films that are mirrored or metalized have a higher reflectivity and will appear shiny. In commercial and residential film, consider both the interior and exterior reflectivity.
UV - Almost all films offer 99% UV protection! Unfortunately, we have seen people that were sold on the fact that their tint blocked 99% of UV rays. It is important to block UV Rays, but even the cheapest films offer some level of UV protection. It is important to make sure you dig deeper and look at more factors about the film and its performance.
(This is a general description. So, please, if there are any more questions, I ask you to please stop by and I will personally walk you through!)
The most common terms you will see out there are: dyed films, multi-layer dyed, metalized, ceramic, color-stable, nano-ceramic, nano, and other variations thereof.
We do not carry any dyed films. Dyed films generally do not last long in our climate and a lot of these tint jobs you see where the film is faded or turning different colors is a good indication of a cheap, dyed film. Some multi-layer have heavy-dye layer that will last a little longer.
Another type of film that is decently effective at heat control compared to their dyed counterparts is metalized or high-performance (HP) films. Some of these films are a little more durable than a standard, dyed film but consist of a metallic layer covered by a heavy dye layer to give it a less reflective look.
Ceramic films usually consist of multiple metallic layers which are excellent for heat control. However, regardless of what may be said, it can sometimes still interfere with certain signals. These films are usually higher quality but beware that some of the cheaper made ceramic films will degrade faster and deliver far less heat protection over time.
Our films of choice are color stable, nano-ceramic and 3M crystalline, which utilize 3M’s nano technology for a completely metal free, long lasting, heat rejection film. The color stable is just that: color stable. It is guaranteed not to change or lose its color. 3M color stable film also boasts extra heat rejection in comparison to our normal color stable film.
We also offer a nano-ceramic film that absolutely has no interference and out performs all other films in terms of longevity and heat rejection in comparison to all films on the market, as well as crystalline product.
