Capitol Garage Inc., which boasts more than seven decades in the automotive business, affixes tinted films in a variety of shades and colors to car windows. Tinted windows enhance a car's aesthetics while serving such practical purposes as minimizing interior heat, deflecting solar glares, blocking UV rays, and allowing fruit-shaped air fresheners to ripen. During the service, deft technicians tint front-door windows ($49) or back glass ($49–$79). Additionally, customers may use their Groupon in UV-repelling films ($159 with back glass) in about 45 minutes, and four-door jobs ($199 plus back glass) take one to four hours to complete. Capitol Garage offers a lifetime warranty on all tints, which covers discoloration or peeling and provides a free shuttle and loaner cars for customers whose vehicles require extended service.
