    Default Horrible tint job

    Have had my 15% tint on for about 2 months, went outside this morning and the front passenger window had about a 3 inch bubble surrounded by other small ones and all the other windows had minor ones. We were recovering from a very humid hot and rainy 2 days and my windows had been cracked allowing a little moisture in but still, a good installation would have prevented this. Now I have to go to the guy and tell him to take it off and re-do it for free (hopefully).

    Hopefully you have a good installer who stands behind his work! The shop I use for all my vehicles gives a lifetime warrenty.

    If youi used a "reputable" installer, he should cover itl I have gone to the same place for my last few vehicles. I've never had a problem, but you never know. Good luck!

    I've had my driver window retinted before, and the shop did it for free because of a small bubble. I would be pissed in your situation if they didnt retint for free. But then agian i kinda wouldnt be surprised if this happened to alot of people locally for you that went to that tint shop as well
