How to Choose a Window Tinting Shop

Choosing an Edmonton window tinting shop is a crucial decision especially that your vehicle window is at stake. There are a lot of tinting shops in town but it’s difficult to come up with a decision because everyone says they’re the best deal or offers the best tinting service. The best thing we can recommend you is to do a thorough research before making a decision. Why? Because the results might be great or terrible, so you really have to choose the best one.  

Window Tinting Shop

1. Look for References 

Word-of-mouth advices or reviews are the best references you can get instead of just reading through reviews in the internet. If your family or friends have background on window tinting before, ask them where it was done. Inspect their cars for signs of shoddy work.  

If you’re driving around the town and you saw a greatly tinted car, ask the owner what shop she brought her vehicle. If you two have more time, you can take a closer look of the car.  

2. Inspect Cars of Family and Friends 

If you know people who have had window tinting, ask them if you can inspect their cars. Pay attention to the window’s weather stripping. If it’s sliced up, the installer wasn’t careful. Curs and scratches in the paint job is also a sign of poor performance.  

To continue checking up on the cars, look at the tint job closely. If everything’s uniform and smooth, it’s a good sign of a good work.  

3. Read Online Reviews 

After hearing references from family and friends, do a double check about the shop and check some online reviews. You can also directly go to the shop’s webpage. If the shop really shows quality work, they will also show it online. Don’t just rely on the testimonials page of the site too because the admin might have picked the best testimonies to posts. If the website has a comment box/section; the better. You will see genuine reviews there.  

4. Personally Visit the Shops 

When you narrow down your list, visit your prospect shops. Visiting each shop will give you the opportunity to compare the quality and prices they’re asking. The owners or employees will show you around. Check the installation area to see if it’s clean or is located indoors. You can also request to check the tinting materials and samples of their previous work. If they don’t give you this opportunity, erase the shop from your list.  

Aside from checking the physical place, make sure that you ask how long the company has been in the window tinting business. A shop which is running for quite a while tends to be more establishes and professional.  

5. Make Your Decision  

Finally! You’ve deleted a lot of shops in your list and you already found the perfect one. If the shop meets the criteria you’re looking for, then you’re good to go. No matter how pricey it could be, rest assured that you’ll get a quality job from window tinting professionals who does their job perfectly.
