Q & A: Have you ever asked yourself one of these when thinking about getting your windows tinted?

Updated: Apr 29

What are the different tint percentages?

At Cutting Edge, we offer three tiers of film and the brand we carry is Global Film. We offer a standard grade film, a high performance and a nano ceramic. Each of these tiers have three shade options: a 4% (most commonly known as limo), 15%, and 32%. We also carry a nano-ceramic windshield tint that is 70%.


What percentage is the darkest legal tint in Texas?

The darkest visible light transmittance (VLT) you can put on your front two windows in Texas, is 25%. Since windows come with a super light factory tint, we use Global's 32% as the darkest tint for the front two windows. Once it’s all done, it will come out legally.


What is the most popular window tint? The most common request for tint is to have the front two legal (32%) and the back two and windshield to be dark but not limo. The middle shade we use is 15%.


Is 15 or 20 percent tint darker?

The number (percentage) equals the amount of light that comes through the film, so 20% allows that much more sun to come in making it the lighter of the two.


Does the tint go on the outside?

Nope! Tint is installed on the inside of the window to protect it from the elements.


Can you use spray tint on windows? You can. You shouldn’t. In fact, we highly advise against it.
