How Long Does Tinting Last?

Similar to cars, all tinting film eventually breaks down. When this happens depends
on the quality of the film itself, the amount of exposure to sunlight, and the
workmanship of the tinter who installed the film.

The worst dyed window film can show signs of color fading in the matter of months
under intense sunlight. The average hybrid type film lasts for 5 years, and the best
quality metallized sputtered or deposition window film can last for a decade.

We’ve all seen purple bubbled rear window film on its last legs. This is a classic
example of cheap car tint coming apart under the intense Texas sun. Bubbles have
formed under the film giving it an uneven and splotchy appearance. Additionally,
the dyed window film itself has turned a purplish hue, indicating that cheap dye was
used in the film.

To prevent this type of mistake, buy your tint from a reputable dealer that uses
quality film. They will offer window film warranty of 3-year or lifetime warranty on the
performance and color of the tint. If any problems with the tint develop, you can take
your car back to the shop and get it replaced.
