Why DIY Window Tinting is a No-Go

Share the love!

Homeowners love working on DIY projects during the spring and summer months. The daylight lasts longer, and nice weather allows for your workspace to extend into the yard for those messier projects. Popular DIY projects include refurbishing furniture and fire pit construction. But what about window tinting? In this article, we explain why DIY window tinting is a no-go. Some things are just better left to the experts.

Narrow Margin for Error

When applying window film to your windows, you get one shot to get it right. Other DIY projects like painting furniture allow you to experiment a little until you achieve the desired look. With DIY window tinting on the other hand, one wrong move means discarding the entire piece of film.

Experience is Key

Professional window tinting technicians at 3M™ Authorized Dealers like Art of Tint undergo intensive training before they ever touch a client’s windows. Thorough classroom and hands-on training equip them the skills and expertise needed for consistently flawless window film application.

Covered by 3M™’s Comprehensive Warranty

When you choose to forgo a DIY window tinting project and leave it to the experts instead, you reap the benefits of 3M™’s comprehensive warranty. This means that if anything goes awry during or after installation including bubbling, peeling, and discoloration, 3M™ replaces the damaged window film at no cost to you.

DIY projects offer a sense of accomplishment and an opportunity to cut costs. However, when there is a narrow margin for error, a unique skill set is required, and doing it yourself means there is no warranty, it’s best to call in the experts.
