If you have looked through a lot of sites offering Automotive
Window Tinting in Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Sacramento or Auburn CA you have across a common theme. “We are the probably come Making The Right Choicee best” or “We have been in business the longest” or “Our film is better than those other guys!”. You get what I am saying. After a while they all look and feel the same. So how do you choose a company to do business with? Maybe you are looking to go with a local
What are you willing to pay? As you may have already found out by calling around, there are a wide range of prices, and this is all depending on what company you have contacted, what window films they try to sell you, and how much their overhead is. Then it all boils down to what installer is tasked to tint your car, and the experience and care that this person can bring to the table. This may be the most important factor. Is this installer going to pull out all the stops and do the best work that he is capable of?company. That will help you to make a decision based on distance. There are only about 10 companies in the entire Roseville and Sacramento areas that I would consider using. I feel this way because I have been here since 1993. I know who provides quality service in this town.
It’s a toss up really, unless you have a referral from someone you know that has done business with a particular tint shop. I have seen work from companies that I am very familiar with that runs the gauntlet from exceptional, to poor and everything in between. Maybe they were pushed for time to complete their schedule and simply couldn’t give their best effort. What if the installer was in a bad mood that day? It could be that they had a new guy and this was the best that he could do. Many factors weigh into the final results.
It is important for you to realize that someone that cares about their work is going to do the best install on your car. There are technicians that have been doing this work for more than 10 years that never really got the hang of it or developed the pride of quality workmanship, and it is something that continuously amazes me. My reputation is all I have to go on, and it is something that I do my best to carefully safeguard in order to continue to get great reviews and repeat customers coming to me year end and year out.
That is why previous customers keep coming back.
What about film selection? There are more than 200 different automotive films on the market today. Of those available, there are really only a handful of companies that make a truly professional product. There are tons of cheap low grade films that are coming from overseas and you will find these films offered in the Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Sacramento and Auburn areas. Surprise surprise… You get what you pay for.
One word of caution: The price that you pay for your install is directly proportionate to the quality of the film used. The low price category is where the poor quality films dominate. Don’t short change yourself and put an inferior product on your auto based on price. A quality window film should last as long as you own your car.
If I had one comment to pass on to you that I feel is very relevant about this subject, it is this: Unless your cars air conditioning is working at peak performance, you probably won’t notice the difference between a “high performance film” and a “standard film”.
The problem with some of the high performance films available is the fact that they aren’t really attractive looking. They have a high level of reflective properties, and simply don’t look good with some color combinations.
I prefer to match good looks with good performance. After all, window film should compliment your cars over all appearance not take away from the look.
You can end up paying to much for automotive window tinting. My pricing is middle of the road I guess you could say. I’m not the cheapest, but not the most expensive either. I won’t try to sell you something that is not a great value, and will give your car the time needed to do the work properly, and provide a high degree of quality workmanship.
