The automotive MDs at Tint Doctor hand-cut tinted films to fit snugly on windows and windshields. Drivers can choose from tint levels that range from 5% to 50% and leave their car in the trusted hands of the technicians, who will then cover the glass with high-performance films. Aside from its aesthetic appeal, tinted film blocks harmful UV rays and prevents interior upholsteries from fading, drivers from burning, and bobble-heads from stripping down to their skivvies. The docs can also remove unwanted tints and glue without risk of damaging or scratching the glass.
