When driving, it’s important to have a good view out so you can see where you’re driving and the objects in front of you. Glare on your windshield can make this difficult. Glare is created when the sunlight is reflected off an asphalt road.

There are many ways that you can reduce the glass, one of which is wearing sunglasses. You can also have your windshield tinted but before you opt in for that option there are a few things you need to think about and do first. Here are a few useful tips on how to prepare your windshield for tinting.

Windshield repairs

When you tint your windshield, the dark film is applied directly to the windshield. And in order for it to properly adhere to the auto glass, the surface must be smooth and without any cracks or ships. In case you have some chips on cracks on your windshield you need to have them repaired first. Once this is taken care of, the tinted film will adhere to the surface flat and will look great!

Smoothen your windshield

Now fixing chips and cracks is one thing. But if your windshield is not smooth, that will also need to be fixed. When driving, debris and dirt will hit your windshield and stick to it or cause pitting on the auto glass. The pitting might not cause chips or cracks, but nonetheless, it needs to be repaired.

There’s a simply way to determine if your windshield is smooth or not. When you run your hands and if you feel that the surface is uneven, lumpy it’s most likely pitted. Luckily there’s an easy fix to this. You can stop buy at Auto Glass Express and have your windshield sanded.

Windshield tinting is one of the most effective ways to reduce glare. However, as mentioned before, before tinting, you need to make sure that your windshield is free from any damage (so fix all chips and cracks) and that it’s perfectly even (remove any pitting).
