Window tinting can be a great way for your car to look better and protect your privacy. It can keep your car warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

Window tinting can be complicated, especially if this is your first attempt. We will guide you through how to put window tint on your car like an expert!

What's Window Tint?

Window tint is thin film that is applied on the windows of your car. It is available in various colors and shades. You can choose to have it opaque or clear.

Window tinting offers many benefits, such as:

  • Reduced glare of the sun
  • Reduced UV exposure
  • Privacy is being increased
  • Improved aesthetics

How to Tint Your Car Windows as a Pro

Follow these steps to tint your car windows like professionals.

Step 1: Clean the Glass thoroughly

You must clean the glass before applying the tint. The tint won't stick well to the glass and it will look streaky or messy.

Clean the glass with a glass cleaner. Use a squeegee after you are done to remove any water droplets and streaks.

Second Step: Size the Tint

Once you have cleaned the glass, you can cut the tint to your desired size. This is a critical step as any mistake could cause the whole process to fail. Cut the tint with a razor or sharp knife and apply it to your window.

Step Three: Remove Any bubbles

Once you have applied the tint, use your squeegee or a sponge to get rid of any air bubbles. Begin at the center of the bubble. Work your way outwards.

Fourth Step: Trim excess Tint

Once all the bubbles have been removed, you can use a razor to trim excess tint around the window's edges. Don't cut too deep, as this could cause damage to the glass.

What to Keep in Mind

  • Make sure you use a sharp knife when cutting tint.
  • Use a squeegee if you find bubbles in your tint.
  • With a razor blade, trim any excess tint around the edges.
  • Trimming the tint should not cause damage to the glass.

Difference between Tinted Glass and Untinted Glass

  • Tinted glass has a thin coating of film that blocks sunlight and heat from entering.
  • Untinted glasses do not have this film so more light and heat can pass through.
  • Tinted glass saves energy because it blocks some sun rays.
  • It can also be used to cool your car during summer.
  • Because it doesn’t block out as many of the sun’s rays, untinted glasses is less energy-efficient.
  • Tinted glass can be helpful if your climate is hot.


There are two main types: dyed and metallic.

  • The addition of a color to the film creates dyed tints.
  • This type of tint can fade quickly and is less expensive.
  • Metalized tints are films that have a thin metal layer.
  • This tint is more expensive but lasts longer and doesn't fade as quickly.

Choosing the right tint

  • Your needs and your budget should guide the choice of tint.
  • Dyed tints offer an economical option that won't fade over time.
  • Metalized tints are a better option if you're looking for something more durable that won’t fade.
  • Consider the climate in which you live when selecting a tint.
  • Metalized tints work better in hot climates because they won’t fade as easily.
  • Dyed tints work better in cold climates because they aren't as likely to crack.


That's it! This is how you can put window tint on your car. Follow these steps to achieve perfect results every time. Thank you for reading! We hope that this helped. Cutting Edge Window Tinting can be reached at any time.
