Removing Window Tint Is Easy For The Pros At Tint World®
Whether your window tint is fading, cracking, discoloring, peeling, or you are just ready for something new, tint removal is always best left to the professionals – or you may end up in a sticky situation. Tint World® provides professional window tint removal services which employ specialized chemicals and tools to soften and remove old window tint and film. A special steamer is used, which when combined with a solvent, will completely dissolve the tint film to the point where the technician is able to just wipe off the tint. The difficult thing about removing window tint is that most film is constructed of two layers of tinted film. When removing window tint from the glass, the top layer will usually pull right off, leaving the second and more adhesive layer behind. This second layer will not easily peel off. Instead, it will flake and tear like a stubborn price tag if you try to peel it off by hand. Tint World® professionals are specially trained for removing window tint. We never use razor blades on your vehicle and can remove almost any film without problems or damage to your vehicle.
Tint World® technicians are expertly trained in removing window tint. If you have any specific question about removing tint, please contact your local Tint World®.

Dangers of Removing Window Tint Yourself
In addition to aesthetic damage resulting from incomplete tint removal, removing window tint involves risk of more serious, permanent damage to your vehicle. Attempting to remove window tint yourself will likely damage one or more of your defroster lines, and when this happens, the cut line will disable your defroster. Some cars have radio antennas mounted alongside the defrosters and are made of the same type of material. Be warned, if you damage these while removing window tint, your radio antenna will not work! Both of these things are costly to repair and could have easily been avoidable had you trusted a professional. To avoid the hazards of removing window tint, Tint World® trained technicians are available to affordably remove window tint without causing any damage to these devices.

why should I have a professional remove my tint?
Leaving tint removal to the professionals will save you time, and in some cases, money, if you damage your own vehicle and it ends up needing to be repaired. It can take five times as long to remove tint than to apply it – even for a professional. Tint removal is no easy or small task. To successfully removal old tint, there are expensive tools, equipment, and products involved. Tint World® professional technicians use steamers, solvents, and special tools to get tint off quickly, and get it off right the first time.
How is window tint remove?
At Tint World®, we use a specialized, professional process to effectively remove your tint. First, the tint is heated with steam and then a special solvent is applied that dissolves the film, allowing it to come off easily and without damaging your windows.
What are the most common reasons to remove auto window tint?
There are many reasons why a customer wants his or her window tint removed. In some states, window tint must be within the legal limit for a vehicle to pass inspection. Also, state laws may require tint to be removed and re-applied in a lighter shade.
But the most common reason window tint gets removed is for appearance. Most window tint doesn’t hold its strength past a few years, so often times it has to be reapplied. We have all seen a car driving the road with old tint. It’s peeling, cracking, has turned purple and takes away from the overall appearance of the car. However, ceramic film can hold its strength three to five years longer than the average brand. Ceramic film is more expensive, but most customers find that it is worth the additional investment because of its longevity and durability.
If I started to remove my tint at home, but can't finish it, can a shop do the rest for me?
Yes. Bring your vehicle into Tint World® as-is and we can remove the rest of your tint successfully.
Can I purchase my own steamer for removing tint?
The equipment to remove tint is very specialized and expensive. We recommend that you trust the professionals at Tint World® to remove your tint to save you time, money, and a headache.
Is it safe to remove my own?
Since the solvents required to remove window tint can be dangerous and expensive, we recommend that you have your window tint removed by a professional. Not only is the equipment dangerous, but you could risk damage to your car’s defroster, antennae, or glass..
Does window tint have to be applied after removal?
Window tint does not damage your windows. In fact, the Tint World® process is so good that your windows will look as good as the day you first had your tint installed. While in no way does the tint have to be re-applied, most of our customers have grown accustomed to having their windows tinted and love all of the added benefits such as protection from UV rays, privacy, theft protection, and a cooler interior and choose to have old tint replaced promptly.

Once you have your window tint removed, new tint can be immediately re-applied. Schedule an appointment at your local Tint World® to have your tint removed and new installed in the very sameday!
Customer Story - Tint Removal & Install
Jessica Ortega had a pre-owned Chevy Silverado that came with window tint already installed. She had never owned a vehicle with window tint before and soon fell in love with how it made her vehicle cooler, shielded her eyes from glare, and protected her leather seats. However, shortly after purchasing her truck she noticed that the tine was starting to show signs of aging. The cracking, peeling, fading really took away from the otherwise like-new condition of her vehicle, so she decided it was time to remove the old tint and have it replaced. After searching online for various tint shops in her area, she came across Tint World®. She called to get more information and was impressed that they would be able to both remove her old tint and install new tint the same day as she couldn’t be without her truck for more than a day.
“I had a great experience with Tint World®. I took my truck up to get the factory tint removed and replaced with a better quality tint,” Jessica shares. “It was around Christmas time, but they were still able to get me in pretty quickly. One thing I really liked was that the owner took the time to explain the difference between 18 and 35 degree tint and that 18 is the legal limit here in North Carolina for the front two windows. That made the choice really easy and I feel good about the leather being a bit better protected from the sun by choosing the right tint. Thanks guys, just a little bit of information goes a long ways.”
Customer Story - Tint Removal DYI Gone Wrong
Michael Wilson knew that his tint was past its prime. It had been peeling and cracking for months, and recently it had started to turn purple. He knew that his otherwise pristine looking Infiniti QX30 was being devalued with his less than perfect window tint. One afternoon, he was feeling ambitious and decided he would remove the tint on all four passenger windows and back window himself. The edges were already peeling, so how hard could it be? He started to peel a particularly bad section of tint on his passenger side window, but was quickly disappointed when only a small section of tint the size of postage stamp came off. For a couple hours, he peeled bits and pieces of tint off of the window, but was disappointed again when underneath the tint there was a sticky residue left behind that would not budge. He tried everything to remove the residue with no success. That’s when he gave up and decided to look for a local tint shop in his area and found Tint World®. He made an appointment for the next day to have his tint completely removed. In the time that it took him to remove a small portion of one window, they had completely removed the tint from all four windows and back window. And the best part was that his windows looked like-new.
