Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to install film on my car?
It all depends on the number of windows that need tint as well as the type of car. As long as you use a qualified, professional Ottawa window Tinting installer, the job will usually take anywhere from 1.5 to 4.5 hours.

Is automotive window film installed on the inside or the outside of the glass?
Window film is always applied to the inside of the automotive glass. Installers simply use the outside of the window to cut & heat shrink the window film for a proper fit.

What film is legal for my car?
Laws pertaining to how dark you can tint your car windows vary from province to province. Here in Ontario the Law says this:

The Police officer must see the driver from outside the tinted window. To understand what that meant I talked to one Police Officer and he explained to me that : "if you want to know if your tint is legal or not, take your driver's license and from inside your car hold it against the tinted window, if the driver's license is readable from the outside you're in the legal zone. If not, your tint is illegal. However don't worry, we will let you know if the tint you choose is legal or not.

Will window film stop all interior fading?
No. Window film will not completely eliminate fading from occurring. Depending on the type of window film that is applied, window film can reduce fading by up to 70%. Its important to note there are multiple causes for fading UV rays, solar heat and visible light and window film can combat all of these threats.

Will window film damage my residential dual pane windows?
As long as your professional installer uses the right type of window film, your dual pane windows should not be affected. FYI, Johnson Window Films provides How to Avoid Glass Breakage support materials to all of their dealers.

Does security film prevent the glass from breaking?
No. Security film does an excellent job at holding broken glass together but it cannot prevent the window from breaking if it comes in contact with a severe force (e.g. hurricane, baseball bat blow).

Safety & security films can be found anyplace where glass breakage poses a threat - homes, commercial buildings, retail stores, government buildings and even cars. They are available in a variety of thickness sizes depending on the level of protection needed, and you can choose either a clear film, if you dont want the look of window film, or a shaded version if you are looking for added solar protection.

Another popular protection film is anti-graffiti. This clear film was created to protect glass and other non-porous surfaces from accidental scratches and acts of vandalism.

Yes, we can tint the front doors for you at a reasonable price and make it legal , of course.

We provide many payment options to better serve you.
