A sleek white Ferrari purrs in the parking lot, and suddenly the opaque window rolls down to reveal Kim Kardashian behind the wheel, beaming with joy at her new custom-tinted windows. Fresh Window Tint’s owner Junior Ayala smiles, knowing he has satisfied yet another customer. Since his father and uncle opened the first location in 1990, Junior has expanded their automotive empire to include three locations, each of which cares for clients personally with custom window tinting and other services.

Using only premium products with at least a 20-year history, which includes Llumar protective window tint, insured technicians wrap windowpanes to reduce heat, solar glare, and up to 99.9% of UV rays. They also protect cars’ bodies with vinyl vehicle wrap or enhance headlights with 3M products. Like wallpaper made from dictionary pages, tinted windows are also stylish and practical for residences and businesses, allowing owners to save up to 40% on energy costs. Customers who live in the Santa Clarita/Valencia area may take advantage of Fresh Window Tint's pickup and drop-off service. Customers visiting from farther-flung locations can relax on the lounge’s plush leather sofas, enjoy snacks and beverages, and watch TV while their cars are being armored against heat and the blinding glare reflected off glass-bottom airplanes.
