Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is window tint legal in Missouri?
A: Yes, as described by Missouri State Statute, 307.173. 1. Any person may operate a motor vehicle with front side wing vents or windows located immediately to the left and right of the driver that have a sun screening device, in conjunction with safety glazing material, that has a light transmission of thirty-five percent or more plus or minus three percent and a luminous reflectance of thirty-five percent or less plus or minus three percent. In layman’s terms, this means you can tint your front door windows to a minimum of 32% light transmission. You can also tint the back windows as dark as you would like.
Q: Will my car pass Missouri safety inspection with the front windows tinted?
A: Yes, when Missouri changed the statute governing window tinting in 2001, the removed it from the list of items in a Missouri Vehicle Safety Inspection.
Q: Will window tint keep my car cooler?
A: Definitely, the films we use will block up to 99% of the UV rays and will reduce heat anywhere from 25% to 60%, depending on your film selection.
Q: Can I still use my rear defroster?
A: Yes, Laying film over your rear window defroster will not affect the performance of the defroster and the defroster will not affect the life of the film.
Q: How long will it take to have my windows tinted?
A: Installation time will vary depending on the type of vehicle. However, normal installation times can be as little as 20 minutes for a pair of front door windows to as much as 2 hours or more for tinting all the windows on a four door car.
Q: Do I need to make an appointment?
A: Yes, we do all of our work by appointment only. However, with our very flexible hours, we can schedule appointments during the day, evenings or weekends, many times within 48 hours of the time you call.
Q: Does the tint go on the inside or outside?
A: Window film should always be applied to the inside of the glass. Due to car washing, snow/ice removal and environmental factors, applying film to the outside of a vehicle would dramatically reduce the life of the film.
