I have seen tinted windows that have bubbles and are purple in color. Why is this?

This happens for several reasons. First, many tint shops use inferior and cheap window films that can bubble and fade over time. We offer the top line of 3M window films that will last for years to come.

Second reason for bubbling window tint is that many so called professional shops do not know how to properly install your window film or they rush the job, resulting in a poor installation. Rest assured that Sunshadow Tinting has the experience and knowledge to tint your windows with the highest possible quality.
