I had my windshield tinted at a different location, and after experiencing issues with the initial location addressing/fixing the defect in the film, I reached out to the company owner, Mike. Mike, who is probably the most down-to-earth and upstanding guy out there, personally called me to address the issues I was having. Mike had me immediately take my car to the Sunstoppers in SouthEnd, off Clanton Road, so the guys there could put eyes on the problem and see what could be done to fix everything. Once I got there, I met Jeremy, who manages the location. Immediately after looking at the issue, Jeremy agreed with my assessment that the film needed to be replaced, no questions asked. Thinking that I would need to set up an appointment for a later date, we went inside. Jeremy asked for my keys and was dead set on replacing the windshield tint, despite his already packed schedule for the day. Not even an hour later, I got the call that my car was ready. In addition to Jeremy going the extra mile to fix an issue he didn’t even cause, let me tell you, the guy’s tint skills are INSANE! Only minutes after he re-tinted the windshield, it already looked a million times better than the other installers work, which had almost two weeks to cure. There is zero doubt that Mike, Jeremy and the guys at the SouthEnd location have a customer for life. I greatly appreciate them doing it so fast.

“They were super fast and very professional and everyone was very nice and easy to work with. They were ready to go exactly at my appointment time! Good job guys and of course JESSICA!!!”
What are the top benefits of tinting my home, business, or car windows?
There are numerous benefits to tinting building and car windows but the most important benefits are: regulating interior temperatures, preventing eye strain, minimizing fading, blocking UV radiation, and increasing privacy.
Does tinting car windows increase my car’s value?
Tinted windows usually give your car a slight resale boost, though some buyers can be scared away by windows that are darkly tinted. Modifying your vehicle greatly from its original production tends to diminish the pool of potential buyers.
How long does it typically take to tint my car?
The time it takes to tint a car window is dependent on the experience of the person doing the tinting! At Sun Stoppers one tinter can get the job done in an hour. An experienced two-man installation crew can usually tint a 4 door car in less than 45 minutes. We’re proud to say this is much shorter than the two hours it takes an average tinter to complete a 4-door car.
How long is the warranty on window tint?
XPEL window film has a lifetime warranty on automotive and residential applications. Commercial jobs have a 10 year warranty.
What cleaners do you recommend for tinted windows?
With tinted windows, it’s important that your window cleaner is ammonia-free! A few good options are Invisible Glass, and Meguiar’s Glass Cleaner.
I always hear the benefits of tinting my windows - are there any concerns with tinting car or building windows?
There are a few concerns to keep in mind:
Most states have laws concerning how dark your car’s window tint can be. If you don’t check the laws out you may get pulled over for breaking the law.
Window tint that is installed incorrectly can crack, bubble, and peel.
Window tinting that is too dark can limit visibility in certain situations.
Does window film or tinting provide evening privacy when interior lights are on?
No, window tint does not provide privacy at night. If you’re truly interested in full, nighttime privacy, without the use of shades or window coverings, a one-way mirror film with night vision is your only option. (this is not an option for cars, but is available for homes).
Does the window film go on the outside or inside of the glass?
The material is made to go on the inside due to the fact that the elements of weather would cause it to degrade.
Does auto window tint help save money on gas mileage?
Window tint itself doesn’t increase gas mileage – but it helps control the climate in your car. When you run your air conditioner less you can see your miles per gallon improve. This is especially true for electric cars like Teslas that depend on less AC being used to help preserve battery life and extend mileage.
What is the darkest legal tint for my vehicle?
Every state has different laws regarding tint darkness and reflection. If you are crossing state lines and get pulled over for window tint that was legal in your state but NOT in the state you are currently in, you will normally only get a warning. Visit tinting-laws.com to discover the window tinting laws in your state.
Does darker film block more heat?
With older films, you will find higher heat rejection does come with darker shades of window film. However, new technology allows window tint to block large amounts of heat without being dark. In short, the quality of window tint matters as much as the shade of window tint.
What type of light gap is acceptable when you roll down your windows in the car?
There should be a 1/16th” gap at the absolute max – though it should be tighter than that. At Sun Stoppers our professional installers do zero light gap, even on frameless doors.
Does darker window tint cost more than lighter window tint?
Some shops charge more for darker film, but the film manufacturers themselves do not. That means that you shouldn’t be paying more money for a darker tint! At Sun Stoppers our dark tints are no more expensive than our light tints.
