We know investing in window tint is no small thing. You want to make sure you’re getting your money’s worth and that your window film is going to last. Three of the top brands we carry — Huper Optik, SunTek and 3M — come with great warranties. Here’s what you need to know.
Huper Optik window tint products are warranted not to blister, crack, delaminate, discolor or show other signs of damage for as long as the user owns them. This product line is also warranted against glass failure from thermal stress for up to five years. Each treated pane of glass is eligible for two warranty claims for seal failure or glass breakage. Each warranty claim requires a deductible of $25 or 5 percent, whichever is greater. The warranty covers repairs of up to $500 for each glazing unit. The warranty is issued to the original owner only and is non-transferable.
Windows should not be washed for at least 30 days after they are installed, and the cleaning products used should not contain any ammonia or abrasive materials.
Newly installed window film may appear a bit cloudy throughout the drying process, but this is normal and should go away quickly.
This warranty protects against seal failure for up to three years after the film is installed, but only if seal failure is also covered by the window manufacturer. The warranty also covers thermal shock fracture for up to five years after installation and covers repairs of up to $500 for each glazing unit. The deductible for each claim is $25 or 5 percent, whichever is higher. In order to file a window film warranty claim, the customer must keep the original copy of the warranty and the original installation invoice.
Pre-existing instances of glass breakage, thermal fracture or seal failure all void this warranty. The warranty does not cover double- or triple-paned glass, mirrors or patterned and textured glasses.
Customers should be aware that new window tint may look cloudy or that small beads of moisture may appear under the window film at first, but they will fade away as the drying process completes. Users should not wash the film for at least 30 days after installation.
3M’s warranty guarantees that their automotive window tint products will not lose their solar reflective properties for the life of your vehicle or as long as you own it. The warranty further covers against peeling, delaminating or bubbling from the glass. Lastly, the warranty protects the color of the product, assuring that it will never fade to purple.
Customers must not abuse or improperly care for the window tint.
The warranty is provided to the original customer only and cannot be transferred to future owners.
