Since Puerto Rico is near the equator, the UV rays are intense, which damages your skin, the skin of passengers, and the car interior. Therefore, it is worthwhile and highly recommend to have window tint installed in your vehicle. Puerto Rico Newcomer has done a great deal of legwork to help you decide where to get your tint installed. Be sure to have high quality tint installed, so it is less likely to fade, turn purple, or develop bubbles.
What you want to look for is an installer that will give you a WRITTEN LIFETIME WARRANTY FROM THE MANUFACTURER, not just from the installation company. You don’t want a warranty from the only from the installer, since many tint shops won’t be around in a few years. What good is a warranty from ABC Auto Tint, once they go out of business? That’s why the manufacturer warranty is so important, so that if ABC Auto Tint goes out of business, you can take your vehicle to another shop that uses that same window tint. Don’t waste your time with a shop that only offers 1, 3, or 5 years on a warranty. If the warranty is so short, that should tell you about the durability and quality of the tint not being high.
