If you are restoring your vehicle or just updating its look, you may decide to have window tint installed. Tint can offer multiple benefits. Here are a few:

UV Protection

As you drive or ride in your vehicle, your skin can be damaged by the ultraviolet rays of the sun. In fact, research shows that people who drive in the U.S. have a higher incidence of skin cancer on their left side due to UV exposure from driving. Nevertheless, some window tint can block up to 99 percent of harmful UV rays.

Just as skin can be damaged by the ultraviolet rays of the sun if left unprotected, the interior of your car can be damaged. Fabrics can become faded and discolored, and leather can crack and harden. Even the covering of your steering wheel can begin to show signs of damage, such as peeling and fading. Reupholstering your vehicle can be costly. However, according to CostHelper.com, tinting the windows of a passenger car will typically cost between $100 and $600. CostHelper readers paid an average of $194 for car window tinting.

Reduced Glare

Glare from the sun can become a safety hazard, as it makes it difficult to see as you drive. Window tint can be applied to filter the sun's rays and block dangerous glare. You can select the color and depth of your tint to ensure that it effectively eliminate blinding glare. 

Improved Appearance

Window tint is an attractive enhancement for your car. If you currently have cracking, peeling or discolored tint on your car windows or if your car windows are untinted, having new window tint installed will immediately improve the look of your automobile. Window tint is often used by people who restore cars to increase the appeal of a vehicle.

Reduced Heat

The interior of your car gets progressively hotter when the vehicle is exposed to the sun. Some car owners purchase window shades to help divert the heat. However, window tint can help keep the inside of your car cool by shading your car's interior.

Resale Value

Every upgrade to an automobile does not necessarily increase the car's value. However, according to Bankrate.com, legal window tint improves the resale value of your vehicle.
