The auto and audio techs at Unique Car Sound and Security enhance car owners’ driving experiences by installing aftermarket touches such as window tinting and souped-up stereos. The films used in their window tinting are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation to help block potentially harmful UV rays. They also install video appliances and alarm systems, and all products come with a nationwide warranty, with installation guaranteed for the life of the vehicle.
Serving Garland and Dallas areas for more than 30 years, American Tint doesn't limit itself to darkening automotive glass. Instead, the company's SolarGard film coats everything from windshields to office buildings to windows in the home. The durable film helps ward off damage from the sun, which can fade fabrics and give carpets uneven tans. The technicians of American Tint are so confident in their handiwork that they back tinting jobs with a lifetime guarantee.
