If you are a person who loves your car, then it can be an eyesore when you see any dirt on the window, scratch on the bumper or even food debris on your car seat. And when you see that the window tinting of your car starts to peel off, you’d probably want to head straight for repair. 

But before you do, some signs can show if your window tinting is already in a state of disrepair. This will help you decide whether you need to repair or replace your window tint. Here are some telltale signs. 


Air Pockets and Bulges

When you start to see air pockets under the window tint, or you see bulges on the window, then this is a sign that your window tinting needs replacement and repair. Bubbles are usually signs that the window tinting has not been really installed properly or you may have rolled down your window too soon after installing the tint. But even so, these air pockets can make your car look old.

So the best way to prevent air pockets and bulges is to have your window tinting installed by professionals. They have the right skills and experience to get the job done.


Peeling Edges

Peeling happens when the adhesive used during the tint installation is inadequate or if you have not followed the proper setup steps. This can also occur because it ages. You may hear cracking sounds when you roll your windows up and down because the adhesive has already become brittle. When this happens, then this is a sign that your window tinting needs repair and replacement.


Darker Tint

Most cars already have a standard factory tint. Sometimes, after a few years, the window tint can darken more than it is supposed to. This is because the heat of the sun can cause some window tints to darken.

In this case, it is best to replace it with a new one, even if it still looks good.


Punctured Tint

A tint puncture can be caused by sharp objects like a key, a nail or a screw. This can happen, especially if you live in an area where you can’t really control who is on your street. The best prevention for punctured tint is to position your car in a garage or in a parking lot whenever you can, especially when you have to leave it for a long period of time.



Scratches are the first sign of wear and tear. This can happen if you have driven your car for a long time on gravel or dirt roads. You can also get scratches on your window tint if you accidentally run your car across a concrete wall. 



Window tinting was designed to protect your car and eyes from UV rays. However, even the most expensive window tinting can wear off over time. So if you find signs that your car’s window tinting needs repair and replacement, you better head over to a professional window tinting repair shop.
