Tint Solutions specializes in tinting the windows of vehicles, residential buildings, and commercial properties. They carry films from name-brand producers and professionally install them to reduce heat, boost privacy, and lower energy bills. Technicians can also detail cars and armor them in a paint-protection film, an invisible shield that reduces nicks and scratches on the finish.
A bad window-tinting job can mean bubbles, cracks, and purple hues. So each professional installer at Sun Stoppers Window Tinting is required to have at least five years of experience. To set their customers’ minds even more at ease, technicians back up their services with a lifetime performance warranty. Their window tinting keeps interiors from overheating, shields passengers from UV rays, and adds an attractive aesthetic to exteriors. Reduced glare helps drivers stay safe, and if an accident happens, the tinting holds shattered glass in place.
The technicians can also shield paint jobs from weather, rogue pebbles, and bugs with 3M paint-protection film. Beyond automotive services, the technicians also tint residential windows and install solar screen shades to protect furnishings from the damaging effects of the ball of fire that grants us life.
Owner Marcy Lanier and her crew of stylists take pride in creating the right cut and color for each of their clients at Willows Dream. During appointments, they apply their collective creative energy to help each person look and feel their best with a hairdo that flatters both their face shape and personality. Meanwhile, the team's aesthetician, Ginger, tends to the rest of the body's beauty needs, performing quick waxing treatments, vegan mani-pedis, and Xtreme Lashes eyelash applications. Her caring, professional touch has resulted in regular clients, and even earned her a spot on Mountain Xpress' Best of WNC 2012 list.
After treatments, guests can peruse the inviting gift boutique, a destination in itself, which is stocked with whimsical accessories, jewelry, local art, and high-quality hair products.
For Tom Tucker, a good car wash is all about the water. Rather than relying on the local supply, he's outfitted Carolina Car Wash with its own well and water-reclamation system, which feeds the wash's jets with purified H2O. This nearly self-sufficient system provides a constant source of water even during periods of drought without impacting Carrboro's supply, fueling Carolina’s five types of car wash, heading off rust and corrosion, and keeping drivers’ backseat waterbeds fluffed. Tom's conservation-minded approach to water use also drives his support of local charities, with whom he collaborates on eco-friendly car-wash fundraisers.
The organic lines of a Maserati. The boxy silhouette of a Cadillac. Rides of every make and model look sharper when polished to a showroom gleam, and the technicians from Kingdom Business Mobile Detailing work around busy schedules to provide a range of one-time and monthly mobile-detailing packages to achieve that. The crew travels directly to driveways, wielding equipment for hand washes, waxes, and clay-bar treatments. They storm through interiors with vacuums and shampoo, banishing evidence that you teach an unlicensed whittling class while you drive and leaving behind nothing but the scent of air freshener.
Soaps, dressings, and protectants rain down on cars from within Pro Shine Car Wash's automatic tunnel while scrubbers busily sweep away smudges. With monthly and annual unlimited-wash packages, drivers can steer their roadsters through the tunnel at the first sign of dirt or seasonal allergies; full-service details are also available for cars requiring more in-depth service. As autos are being bathed, hot cups of Seattle's Best coffee aromatize Pro Shine's in-house Internet lounge, where customers can recline with a cup of joe and a wireless network to scour the web for hood ornaments shaped like jumper cables.
