It’s entirely right that almost all the technical tasks we want to do could be watched and learned on YouTube. If you are also lucky, you can find full videos on the social media sites. So, DIY methods are now really trendy amongst the people who either don’t trust the pros, don’t have enough money to hire them, or they just want to experience the fun.
This pattern is similarly observed in window tinting for vehicles. More and more people are resorting to DIY window tinting solutions because they think that it’s cheaper than hiring a mobile tint service. However, there are plenty of reasons why you should not choose the DIY window tinting method for your vehicle. Here are some that you may want to consider:
The Task Is Hard to Perfect
If this is your first time to do a DIY window tinting to your car or any other vehicle, give yourself a favor and don’t do it. Installing window tints to car windows is difficult. Without proper experience, you might just end up repeating the application several times, wasting a lot of your time, money, and effort.
It Requires a Clean Area for Application
The application of films on your car windows requires a clean workspace. The room must be free from flying dust. You have to consider if your place is neat or clean enough before starting the DIY window tinting. Otherwise, the dust floating in the air can land between the films and your window during the installation. You don’t want that to happen, do you?
You Have to Check the Rules First
When you decide to do a DIY window tinting method for your vehicle, it automatically means that you are claiming responsibility for your vehicle’s tints. Did you know that every state and city have their own rules and regulations about the use of window tints on cars? They have included these in the traffic rules and safety purposes section.
Apparently, each state or city regulates the degree of the tint. So, before the police pulls you over because of your “cool” window tint, think very carefully about doing the DIY method. It’s still safer to leave it to the professionals.
It’s Much Cheaper. Really?
DIY window tinting kits typically cost under 100 dollars. If you think about it, it’s much cheaper than hiring a professional tinting service. However, the task requires precision and accuracy. You cannot expect to accomplish the task correctly just because someone on YouTube taught you the hacks, the right materials to use, and considered all factors. It will still come down to your skills, the condition of the workplace, the type of your car, the materials you use, and your luck. So, it still much better if you just call the pros and leave the work to them. At least, there’s always money back if they messed up.
