Windshield Tint in Chicago: Affordable Prices, Best Films, Fast Work

What is the windshield tint?

The dangerous UV rays not only heat up the car, and cause the paint and the upholstery to fade. They interfere with the comfort of driving and can drastically affect the health of a driver and his passengers. The windshield tinting can reduce sunlight damage and make the ride more comfortable and safe. A vinyl film is applied to the upper part of a windshield, adding a protective layer, and reducing the heat and glare.

The main benefits of windshield tinting are:

  • Reduced heat
  • Reduced exposure to UV rays
  • Reduced glare
  • Increased comfort
  • Increased safety

Besides these obvious benefits, windshield tints do reduce the risk of accidents, as many of them happen due to exposure to the direct sun’s rays.

The whole windshield is not allowed to be tinted in most of the world. For example, in Illinois, only a visor strip of 6 inches wide can be added to the topmost part of the windshield.

Window tint darkness

The VLT (visible light transmission) measures the amount of light that passes through the window (it can be any type of window, whether of a car or a building). So a 90% VLT will allow 90% of the light to pass through. The lower the percentage, the darker the film. For example, the darkest that you can get is 5% which is legally allowed only on limousines and other special vehicles.

Is it legal to tint your windshield?

There are no federal windshield tint regulations — each state has its own rules. The general rule is: that the windshield can only be tinted on the upmost side (a stripe, or a visor). In the state of Illinois, the windshield is only allowed to be tinted with a 6-inch 5% VLT stripe, while the rear window can have any darkness of tint. The front 2 windows can be tinted to 35% if the windows behind the driver are not darker than 35%, or 50% if the windows behind the driver are darker than 35%.

Which windshield protection film is the best?

When it comes to windshield tint, Rayno is one of the top manufacturers, offering the best products in the industry. We have been using films produced by this brand for over 8 years. Window tinting films produced by Rayno come with a lifetime warranty against peeling, bubbling, or fading.

Types of windshield tint films

Based on the materials they are made of there are 4 categories out there in the market: dyed, metalized, carbon fiber tint films, and ceramic films. But here at Tinting Chicago we only work with the latter two as in our experience they provide the highest quality.

How much does windshield tint cost?

The prices in our shops differ based on the type of vehicle (size and brand), the type of film used, and also on the windows that are tinted. For the windshield, the prices can range between $149 and $339. Luxe, rare vehicles are more difficult to tint compared to others, so there might be an extra fee of $50-100 or more.

Feel free to contact us and tell us more about your vehicle and the protection you are looking for, and we will give you an estimated price.

Asked Questions

How much does windshield tinting last?

The tinting films we use are from Rayno and 3M, and they come with a lifetime warranty against peeling, bubbling, or fading. But obviously, the tinting film will get the usual wear and tear after many years, or it can get scratched. As long as you take good care of it, you can benefit from the tinting films for many years to come.

Can I tint my whole windshield?

No. The tinting laws are different from one state to another, so it depends on where you live. For residents of Chicago and the state of Illinois, non-reflective tinting is allowed only on the top 6 inches of the windshield. But even though you can’t tint your entire windscreen, you can still benefit from the protection it gives.

What percent is factory tint?

As you may already know, most new cars do not come with any tint at all. But the cars that do come with an existing protection film, have a factory tint of around 80% (which is not that much). We can offer you shades ranging from 5% to 90% and it is up to you to decide if you keep it within the legal limits or not. Our company is not liable for any tickets if you choose to go lower than the legal tint percentage.
