Nothing improves the aesthetic looks and value of a vehicle or structural property quite like window film, and naturally, the difference between premium and cheap tinting is often considered by the purchaser. Often, the differences are not addressed in a total manner leaving the potential purchaser with more questions than answers. The answer to which is better is not quite as simple as pointing to a price tag.
More and more companies that apply a variety of window film all claim to have the lowest cost with the highest quality product. However, this is not always a viable or realistic choice for the purchaser. Sure, cheap tinting would be nice because of the lower price tag, and these days, many people are tightening those purse strings because every penny makes a difference. Yet, getting a low quality application of window film will leave an undesirable bubbling effect on the surface.

The adhesive on any type of window film must be of the highest quality because the type of adhesive used is of vital importance to the longevity of the product. All window films have a tendency to discolor as they get older. However, the bubbling is a sign of poor quality film.
How can a purchaser insure a low price while still maintaining the high quality?
Generally, a reputable company will actually guarantee the products sold. In other words, if there is any problem with the window film such as bubbling, the company will refund the money or even replace the product. A guarantee or warranty is the first thing to look for with a window film company to help insure top quality products. If the company stands behind their products, the product will be sure to please the consumer.
In addition, the manufacture will generally guarantee or warranty the product for so many months or miles after purchase. A manufacture warranty is another great way to insure a better product. The manufacturer is the expert at knowing its own product and what it is capable of. How does the manufacturer address bubbling? What is the warranty timeframe? There are numerous questions to ask to discover the quality of that cheap tinting.
Of course, bad applications happen to the best of people. Luckily, a bad application of poor quality window film is easy to remove. A window film professional will be able to help remove any troublesome applications with ease allowing the higher quality film to be added to the surface. Another benefit of contacting a window film professional is that they will generally have suggestions for high quality and cheap tinting products.

A reputable and reliable company will provide a lot of literature on the product and how the product is made. But the true way to tell if a manufacturer and film company is a good source is to check the warranties, guarantees, and even customer reviews.
