Caveman Tinting, Inc.


Generally speaking, the most common reasons why individuals seek out window tinting are for appearance and/or glare & heat reduction. However, often times, prospective window tint customers are not truly aware of the full spectrum of benefits that tinted glass provides. Whether automotive, marine, or commercial/residential, the advantages of tinted glass when compared to 'naked' glass are multifold. Below is a list of such benefits.

 

Benefit Automotive Commercial / Residential
Enhanced Looks Window tinting enhances the look of your vehicle by adding a chic & sporty dynamic to the glass. Furthermore, it can even add to the resale value of your vehicle. While the primary purpose of solar window film is not a decorative function, it can make your home look better from the outside. Curb appeal is important to most homeowners. Solar window film comes in many colors and shades as well so it can not only complement, but enhance the style of your home.
Heat Reduction Avoid overheating: The interior of your vehicle can be up to 60% cooler during hot summer days with proper tinting. Since the window tint will keep your car cooler, you will be able to save significantly on gas by utilizing less gas-guzzling air-conditioning. Solar window film decreases the heat & glare that comes in to your home from the exterior making it easier and cheaper to keep your home cool during the summer. Furthermore, during the cold winter months, window film acts as an insulator which aids in effectively reradiating the heat already present in your home and drastically prevents heat loss while decreasing your electrical usage. Also, in an effort to spur energy efficiency, the federal government is offering a tax credit for home window tint. Consumers who purchases qualifying energy control window film for residential use are eligible for 2014 tax credit up to $500 per taxpayer*. See the Residential Tinting section for more details.
Protection From Harmful UV Rays Excessive exposure to direct sunlight is just bad for you and your belongings. In humans, it can cause deterioration of the skin which leads to premature aging. It can also cause dry skin which involves itchiness and rashes, not to mention the increased chance of skin cancer. Much like your skin, direct exposure to UV light (and heat) on your furnishings & interiors can rapidly increase fading, drying, and cracking. Window tint blocks 99% of the ultraviolet light that causes such damage while keeping interior temperatures cool. Excessive exposure to direct sunlight is just bad for you and your belongings.

Accident Protection

Window Tint provides an additional layer of safety in the unfortunate event of an accident. Upon impact, certain types of vehicular glass are designed to shatter in hundreds of little pieces. At high rates, these pieces can act as projectiles. Window tint significantly reduces the chance of injury due to such projectiles by utilizing an incredibly durable laminate & adhesive which keeps the shattered glass intact.

 
Privacy & Theft Deterrent Thieves will not steal what they cannot see. Window tint adds a level of privacy to your vehicle which significantly impairs the ability of potential thieves to view your contents including electronics, tools, furnishings and more. Privacy matters, but why would you want to keep your shades pulled down all the time? Home window tint ensures that privacy during the day and it does not impair your view! Home window tint comes in many different types and offers a wide array of aesthetic/privacy options.
Safety Window tint can also give you a safer ride since it can reduce glare from the sun, snow, headlights, and other bright distractions which will help you drive safer.

Glass can be the weakest link in severe weather and storms. When unprotected glass breaks, shards can be sent flying, causing severe injury to people and major damage to property. During a disaster, certain window films help hold the glass together to maintain the integrity of your home or business. This also helps to keep flying glass from harming inhabitants and, in many circumstances, helps keep out wind and rain.
