Tinting car windows by yourself, can be a real hassle, selecting the right brand, shade, 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 that suits you.
- Our uniformed staff will arrive, only needing access to power.
- We then clean the vehicle windows with 100% filtered water to clear away any dirt or microscopic debris previous to tinting them.
- We might need to remove door cards to gain access to the entirety of the window. This is done to the best professional standard.
- Once the windows have been tinted, we believe its best that you do not use the windows for at least a week so that they can dry fully, this protects the edge of the tint.
- We are then able to take payment by, bank transfer, cash, or card.
Which window tint shade is the right choice for your vehicle?
Choosing the right tint shade can be tricky. Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Would this tint be for style and looks?
- Is it to protect children or animals from things like heat & UV rays?
- Is it cover up valuables from view?
Based on your answers to the questions our trained professionals are able to help you to select the right shade. These are the 3 main shades to choose from:
Light tint – This is a subtle tint offering protection from UV rays but allowing for total visibility even in darkness.
Medium tint – This is a factory tinted look, it offers protection from UV rays, heat and does add a little privacy.
Blackout tint – This tint is our most popular, it protects from heat, UV rays and offers absolute privacy.
Which car windows can we tint?
We are asked this question many times. To start with, let us explain how tint is measured.
The percentage produced for a tint defines how much of the light is allowed through. Therefore a 20% tint makes it possible for 20% of light to pass through.
The allowed legal limit on each of the driver’s & the front passenger’s window is 70%. The windscreen is 75%. Which means the front windows must let 70-75% of the light through any installed tint. The vast majority of vehicles produced today come with tinted glass that is already at (or close to) the 70-75% limit. Although to some it doesn’t seem to be tinted, it really is.
If you go ahead and have your front windows tinted your penalties range from (click here for more details):
- A ‘prohibition notice’ banning your vehicle being used on the UK road network until you have the extra tint removed.
- A penalty notice and a summons by the court system.
Also, another factor to think about is your car insurance. By illegally tinting your front windows, it’s possible to invalidate your insurance.
It is also illegal to an illegally install tint to a cars front windows, with heavy penalties & fines. Vision Tints is a respectable, reliable and trustworthy business that all clients rely on and because of this we choose not to disobey the law. So we will not tint any front windows over the legal limit.
We always use a tint meter to ensure everything is legal when installing any 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 install?
Not every window tint meets our standards! The types of window tint available are:
This tends to be the cheapest tint available to the market, it fades, bubbles, and will likely go a blue or purple colour eventually. Its really not great, and we do not recommend it.
This tint is also often very cheap. It is regularly affected by the rear window heater lines, which cause it to bubble. It can also disturb radio reception. This is not first class, and, will not last.
Carbon or Charcoal
Top industry-standard tint. We choose to use this at Vision Tints, as it provides great colour, its long lasting, is not affected by heater lines and doesn’t affect the radio signals.
The finest tint we can buy, offered as our premium service. It has great longevity/colour, the heater lines do not affect it, won’t affect radio signals and provides the best UV/temperature protection.
Having said that, not all tint manufacturers offer the same, after many years in the industry, we have chosen what we have found to be the best brand available, and what is more, it is manufactured in Great Britain, which means that when you choose our services you are actually supporting two UK businesses.
