Corpus Christi is a unique environment for automotive care. Not only do you have an above-average level of sunlight to manage, but you also have more precipitation events that can impact your vehicle.
When you add in the salty film that can form on your vehicle’s glass, it can be a high-maintenance experience to own a car, truck, van, or SUV.
Thankfully, one product offers a comprehensive solution. When you apply automotive window tinting to your glass, it provides several protective advantages without an extensive investment.
What Are the Window Tinting Laws in Texas?
Texas permits several window tinting shades for your vehicle. As long as your installer follows the application rules, you can benefit from this investment without worrying about getting pulled over.
Four different conditions must be met to have a legal automotive tinting application.
-All tinting devices must be above the AS-1 line on the vehicle or end five inches below the top of your windshield.
-Vehicular tinting in Corpus Christi cannot be blue, amber, or red.
-Untinted or transparent UV film is permitted without a medical exemption on all windows.
-Tinting products must have light transmittance and luminous reflectance values of 25% or less.
Front side windows must allow more than 25% of the available light into the car. A rear window can use window tint 70 (or any darkness) with side outside mirrors. Backside windows permit any tinting darkness level.
Your doctor can prescribe a darker window tint than what Texas law allows. You would need to provide this documentation to your professional installer as part of the estimation process.
Why Choose to Install Automotive Tinting Products?
Several advantages are possible when you install a legal window tint on your Texas vehicle.
1. It reduces glare.
You can see better when driving in the early morning and late afternoon hours with vehicular tinting. Even when the darkness levels are light, the product's reflective qualities make it easier to stay on the road.
2. It offers cabin preservation.
Although standard vehicular glass does block some UV exposure, it doesn’t compare well to tinted windows. You can prevent fading and discoloration for your vehicle’s interior significantly with a professional installation.
3. It makes driving more comfortable.
Have you ever opened your car after it baked in the Texas sun for a while? That blast of heat can sometimes make you sweat instantly! Automotive tinting creates a more controlled environment to reduce temperature buildup.
4. It improves your privacy.
You never know who may be watching you with dash cams and other recording devices. If you park somewhere while running errands, someone might want to peer into your car to see what might be worth stealing. Adding window tint provides more privacy in both situations.
Although vehicle owners could apply a window tint product themselves, hiring a professional team ensures your car, truck, van, or SUV remains legal while reducing the risk of bubbles and cutting errors.
