Why Window Tinting in San Diego is Essential

At El Cajon Window Tinting, we offer premier window tinting (you could probably guess that, given our name!). Our window tint installation is done by the best in the industry, our products are top-of-the-line, and we offer some of the best prices in town. We consider it the trifecta of window tinting.

But none of this matters if you don’t understand the true benefits of window tint. If you think window tinting is purely for cosmetic purposes, then you - and more importantly, your vehicle - are missing out on a lot of other great benefits. Below, we highlight the top reasons we believe window tinting in San Diego is critical for every driver.


Get a break from the hot sun

Here in southern California, we’re no strangers to the hot sun. It’s part of what makes living in San Diego so enjoyable. However, driving around at any time when the sun is up can be problematic, as the glare is very strong, even with the darkest of sunglasses. With proper car window tint installation, window glare will no longer be a problem and you can drive with confidence to your next destination. Many drivers with car window tint have also reported that their car gets better gas mileage, since it takes less energy to cool their vehicles with windows that have been treated.


Better privacy

If you’re the type of person that constantly forgets items - including valuables - in your vehicle (no judgment here), car window tinting may be the perfect solution for you. Or, in another scenario, maybe you have a sweet car audio system that you don’t want would-be thieves spotting through your windows.

Car window tinting has become especially popular for those that want some privacy from nosy people (we all know they exist!). With the darker tint of window film, the view into your car is obscured, regardless of whether you’re parked or in motion.

We’ve also heard from parents that they’ve found window tinting to be especially handy when they have their babies in the car, as the tint protects littles from the glaring sun. No more messing with those annoying roll-up window shades that never fit right and won’t stay put.


Window tinting improves safety

We all know that, no matter how safe of a driver you are, accidents just happen. That’s why they’re called accidents. Another added benefit of window tinting is that, if a window breaks, the glass will stay in place and not shatter all over the car. Because window tint film has an adhesive side that helps it stay in place against your windows, shattered pieces of glass will also remain stuck to the film in the unfortunate event of an accident. This ensures that you and any passengers won’t suffer multiple cuts from glass shards flying all over the car.

And, in the event of a break-in, cleanup will be much easier and safer without having to pick up thousands of tiny pieces of shattered glass.


How much does window tinting cost?

Obviously, the price of window tinting differs depending on what you want, as well as what kind of vehicle you own. If you have a relatively small vehicle, or you only want a couple windows tinted, a basic tint will cost a few hundred dollars for the entire car. If you’re looking for higher-quality materials, or want tint for a larger vehicle, then the price will go up accordingly.

In the long run, car window tint installation in San Diego will pay for itself. Being able to drive safely and comfortably, and without issues like sun glare, are priceless. Saving money at the pump will always put you in a better mood, and keeping cool will make everyone riding in your vehicle happier. Plus, anyone who rides in your vehicle will feel at ease knowing that they’re protected inside your vehicle thanks to greater privacy and safety afforded you by window tinting.
