Window Tint Removal
Is it time to remove the old tint on your windows?
There are numerous reasons why you would want to have tint applied to your windows, such as for privacy, ultraviolet protection from the sun, and so on.
But at the same time, there are a few reasons why it will eventually be necessary to remove that tint as well. Believe it or not, there are laws on window tinting that need to be followed, and your tint may be starting to bubble or fade away after extended use.
It’s not all uncommon for window tint to begin to fade after around ten years or more, and when that day comes, you will need to hire professional services such as Window Tinting Sarasota to have it removed for you.
Keep in mind, that when window tinting begins to peel and fade, it’s not only less attractive, but it’s also far less resilient against the UV rays of the sun as well. Furthermore, extreme hot and cold temperatures can hasten the separation of the glass from the tint. Once the separation begins, there’s no turning back and you will need to have the tint removed and replaced.
You may certainly be tempted to remove the damaged tint yourself, but the truth is you would be much better served by hiring professionals to do it for you. The primary reason why is because professionals like us here at Window Tinting Sarasota will utilize specialized chemicals to remove the tint and film, and to also ensure that no sticky residue is left behind. We will also utilize a solvent and specialized steamer to completely dissolve the remaining tint and film from the window as well.
The reason why removing tint can be difficult is because it is constructed of two layers. The top layer is always easy to remove, but the second layer has much more adhesive and is, therefore, a bit more difficult to remove. It will tear repeatedly into small strips rather than just coming off in one piece. People who try to remove the tint themselves will often utilize razor blades or a similar sharp edge, but this will only damage the window and hurt the value of your car or home.
In the case of a vehicle, it’s not at all uncommon for people to damage the defroster lines for instance, to the point that the defroster will be rendered completely inoperable until it is repaired.

We will always take special care when removing the tint and will use our professional expertise and experience to ensure that no damage is inflicted to the windows.
