Tinting your car windows yourself, can be a real hassle, selecting the best shade, brand, and also just lining it up on the glass and applying it, can be problematic!

What we do
- You book a time slot and a location convenient to you.
- Our uniformed crew will arrive, only requiring access to a power point.
- We then wash the car windows with 100% filtered water to eliminate any dirt or unseen debris previous to tinting them.
- We might need to remove door cards to gain access to the workings of the window. This is done to the best professional standard.
- When the windows have been tinted, we request you don’t use the windows for around 7 days so that they can completely dry, this preserves the edge of the tint.
- We’re then able to take payment by, card, bank transfer, or cash.
Which window tint shade is the right choice for your car?
Selecting the correct tint shade can be difficult. Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Is the tint to make you car look great?
- Is it to look after children or animals from heat or UV rays?
- Is it to conceal valuables out of view?
From your responses to these questions our trained specialists are able to help you to pick the right shade. These are the 3 main shades to choose from:
Light tint – This is a subtle tint providing protection from UV rays but allowing for full visibility even at night.
Medium tint – This is the same as the factory provides for many cars, it offers a safeguard from UV rays, heat & does add some privacy.
Blackout tint – This tint is our most commonly selected, it protects from heat, UV rays and offers total privacy.
Which car windows can we tint?
We are asked this question many times. Firstly, let’s explain how tint is measured.
The percentage given for a tint defines how much of the light is allowed through. So, a 20% tint permits 20% of light to pass through.
The allowed legal limit on each of the driver’s and the front passenger’s window is 70%. The windscreen is 75%. Meaning the glass at the front have to let 70-75% of the light through. Most of vehicles the come from the factory today have tinted glass that is already at (or nearly) the 70-75% maximum. Even though to some it doesn’t look tinted, it really is.
If you go ahead and get your front windows tinted your penalties range from (click here for more details):
- A ‘prohibition notice’ banning your vehicle being used on the road unless you remove the extra tint.
- A penalty notice and a summons by the court system.
Also, another factor to consider is your car insurance. By unlawfully tinting your front windows, it’s possible to invalidate your insurance.
It’s also illegal to an illegally install tint to the front windows, with hefty penalties & fines. Vision Tints is a reliable, trustworthy & respected business that all clients rely on and because of this we choose not to disobey the law. So we will not tint front windows over the allowed limit.
We always use a tint meter to make sure your car’s windows are legal when applying tint on front windows.
We will happily tint any rear windows as dark as you wish, as there is no legal limit on rear window tints.
Which of the available tints do you use?
Not every window tint meets our standards! The window tints available are:
This is often found be the least expensive tint on the market, it fades, bubbles, and normally goes a blue or purple colour eventually. Its really not great, and we do not recommend it.
This tint is also cheap. It is regularly damaged by the rear window heater lines, making it bubble. It can also disturb radio signals. This isn’t a premium tint, and, won’t last.
Carbon or Charcoal
Premium industry-standard tint. We choose to use this at Vision Tints, as it provides great colour, its long lasting, does not get affected by heater lines and does not affect the radio reception.
The best tint money can buy, provided as our premium service. It provides the best longevity/colour, isn’t affected by heater lines, won’t affect radio signal and gives the best UV/temperature protection.
Having said that, not all manufacturers of tint are the same, after many years of experience, we have selected what we have found to be the best brand available, and even better, it is manufactured in the UK, which means that when you hire our services you are actually supporting two UK companies.
