Tinting the windows in your own home, on the other hand, is probably not the best option unless you have previous expertise with home improvement projects and are looking for a challenge that will put your abilities to the test. Make sure you have read the instructions all the way through before beginning since they are described below.
Step 1: Cleaning
Before you install your tint, make sure your windows are clean. Each of the windows that you intend to tint needs to be meticulously cleaned. Dust and streaks will remain even after the tinting film has been applied.
Step 2: Measure the Window and Cut the Film
Take measurements of the window. To ensure the accuracy of your results, measure twice.
After you have finished measuring, gently cut the tinting film. To account for the additional space, add one inch to each of the four measurements. Don’t take the film off just yet.
Step 3: Peeling Off the Backing
Step 3 is easier with a helper. When you remove the tint’s backing and expose the adhesive, it sticks to itself. You can avoid this with help. One person can remove the backing while another holds the film flat.
Step 4: Attaching the Tint
Most window tint adhesives are triggered by water; check your tint’s directions.
Before attaching the window and film, sprinkle both with water. Carefully apply the window tint. This is the hardest part of window tinting.
Step 5: Remove Bubbles
Once the film is on the window, bubbles and defects may appear. Pushing air to the edges removes them. You can do this with your fingers, but a squeegee works better.
Step 6: Trim the Edges
Following step 2, in which you added an inch all the way around, you should now have extra window tint. After the air bubbles have been removed, the edges should be trimmed. Viola! Finished!
