Length of time required for a tint job

On average, most vehicles will take approximately 3-4 hours to complete. The size, number of windows and type of vehicle will impact the time required for installation.

Drying time of window tint

Please refrain from lowering tinted windows for at least 2-3 days. Upon completion of the installation, you may notice a hazy, patchy and uneven appearance. Please allow approximately 2-3 weeks for the moisture to completely evaporate. Drying times will vary depending on the weather.

Legality of window tint

British Columbia - No film is permitted on the driver's compartment, right and left. Any film may be installed on the side windows behind the driver. Any film may be applied to the rear window, provided the vehicle has 2 exterior rear view mirrors.

Imperfections in window tint

Our highly experienced installers take great care to provide the best window film application results each and every time. However, due to the nature of the film application, please note that a very minor degree of dust particles will be present in every installation. The amount of dust present in a job is directly related to the age and cleanliness of the vehicle.

Black dots and lines at the edge of windows

These black dots, also referred to as dot matrix can be found on some windows. These raised dots are made of a Teflon type material that is applied by the vehicle manufacture. Purely cosmetic, they are used to hide the edges of trim panels and glass. These raised areas make window film applications challenging, as the film is designed to adhere directly to the glass. These dotted areas will appear white or hazy appearance once tint is applied and are unavoidable and completely normal. If you are concerned about the appearance of the tint due to the dot matrix, please speak with one of our staff members for alternative suggestions.

Tinting in wet or cold weather

Some people may falsely believe that it is not good to have their car tinted on a cold or rainy day. With today's advanced adhesive technology combined with our special drying techniques, there is no need to worry. Any time of year is suitable for tinting at NMotion.

Cleaning and care of window film

For maintenance of your window film, we recommend a mild glass cleaner that does not contain ammonia. Do not use abrasive agents or tools on window films.
