Most people tint two, four, or all of the windows of their car at once. So why would you want to only tint one window? There are various scenarios when this may happen, for example:

  • When the old tinting has faded out
  • When the old tinting has scratches
  • When the old tinting started to peel off
  • If you decided to change color or tinting intensity

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 one window tinting for the one that is not ok anymore.

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 against UV rays
  • Protection of the car interior against UV rays
  • Reduced glare
  • Reduced heat
  • Reduced fuel consumption because of using the AC less
  • Increased privacy during the day
  • A more appealing look of the car

By choosing to tint just one window (if that is the case), you will save a lot of money by not having to replace all of 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 also choose between different colors if you want the tint to match with the car paint, especially if you have a racing or a show car. Window films also come made of different materials, each one with its pros and cons. 

And last but not least, there are also multiple brands to choose from. To simplify things for you, we chose two of the best to work with, and these are 3M and 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). 

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to tint one window?

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.

How many windows do you tint on a car?

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

How long should I wait to roll down the window after tinting?

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.
