Why tint just one car window?
Most people tint two, four, or all of the windows of their cars at once. So why would you want to only tint one window? There are various scenarios when this may be appropriate, for example:
- The window’s shade needs to be matched with the other windows
- The old tinting has faded out
- The old tinting has scratches
- The old tinting has started to peel off
- The owner decides to go for a different tint color or shade
If the other tinting films on the rest of the windows are still ok, there is no point in spending money and redoing all of them. You can just do window tinting for the one that needs fixing.
The benefits of one window tinting
Whether you decide to tint just one window or the entire vehicle, the benefits are definitely worth it. These include:
- Protection of the passengers from UV rays
- Protection of the car interior from UV rays
- Reduced glare
- Reduced heat
- Reduced fuel consumption from using the AC less
- Increased privacy during the day
- A more appealing look of the car
By choosing to tint just one window, you will save a lot of money by not having to replace the films on all of the windows. You can also choose a different color or VLT level for a certain window.
A wide variety of tinting solutions
First of all, tinting needs to comply with the local laws of your state. Some allow for less VLT while others do not, so there are plenty of options to choose from whether you want a really dark tint, a lighter one or an invisible film.
You can choose between different colors if you want the tint to match the car paint, especially if you have a racing or show car. Window films also come in different materials, each with its pros and cons.
And last but not least, there are also multiple brands to choose from. To simplify things for you we’ve chosen to work with one of the best brands – Rayno.
The price for one window tinting depends on the chosen type of film, the brand, and the window where it’s placed (front window, back window, windshield, or sunroof).

One window tinting takes around 20 minutes, but the exact time will depend on the size of the window and the brand of your car. Tinting all the windows of your vehicle would take around 2 hours.
All the windows of a car can be tinted, but not to the same degree. The laws are different from one state to another, and in the state of Illinois they allow you to tint:
- Windshield — only the top 6 inches
- Front side windows — up to 35% VLT
- Back side windows — up to 35% VLT
- Rear window — up to 35% VLT
It’s recommended to wait for at least 3 days after the tint has been applied until you roll down the window. This will allow the film to properly adhere to the glass.
