Common sunroof tinting mistakes
- Improper tint installation — applying a tinting film on the front or side windows is a straightforward process, but its application on the sunroof is much trickier. The glass can get scratched or the film may not be applied correctly, causing the sunroof not to open smoothly. That’s why we recommend trusting this job to professional installers.
- The usage of cheap or improper films — it’s best to choose the film that fits the climate of your region. Dark tints retain more heat and are best for those living in cooler places, while lighter hues are better for those living in very hot climates.
- Believing the sunroof tinting myths — tinting a sunroof will not cause it to break, there are many other factors such as road debris or scratches already on the window before the tint was applied. In some cases, the frame of certain cars can put extra stress on the sunroof causing it to break whether it was tinted or not.

The short answer is “no”. There are various rumors online that applying a tinting film over the sunroof will cause it to crack or explode, but those are just myths and they are not based on real facts. Over the years we have installed plenty of sunroof films and the drivers didn’t have any issues. The tinting film itself will not break a glass that is in perfect condition. But if the glass is already cracked, then the tinting can increase the risk of it breaking up. But don’t worry, we will carefully inspect the surface before applying the film, and let you know if there are any tiny cracks or scratches.
