Hey guys,

Just got my windows tinted last week and I have noticed approximately 2-3 small "bubbles" (?) in each window. They are about the size of a pin-head and hardly noticeable unless you are looking for them.

Since this is the first time I have ever had tinted windows, I was wondering if a "few" minor imperfections like this is normal and to be expected??

OR...should one expect a "perfect" job with NO bubbles or imperfections whatsoever? What do you guys that have had several cars tinted in the past normally experience in this regard?

Any input is greatly appreciated!

NO bubbles what so ever. I have had cars that start out with little bubbles and they turn into BIG ones all over the place. You tint company should know better.

FYI I have had tinted windows on my cars for 35 years and have seen very small "bubbles" you are describing actually go away after a few weeks. I would make the installer aware of the issue any way in case they get worse or don't go away.

Mine also had VERY tiny bubbles that went away after a few days. They told me that was normal. If they dont go away take it back and get it redone.

If there is a tiny spec of "dirt" in there, the bubble probably won't go away. I had one window with several of them that remained and after a month or so, I took it back and the installer redid that window. It is normal for there to be bubbles that will evaporate after several days or so.

WOW - thanks for all the input guys!!!

I will give the windows a couple more weeks to "cure" then. If the bubbles remain after that, I will take it back and have them redone.

Thanks again!

Hey JFF.

Just to add to what everyone else is saying under most circumstances that is not normal. Installers...good installers :wink1: ...do their best to get all of the bubbles out while they're installing which is why they apply heat to it. It's normal to be left with "some" moisture bubbles. If you had them done last week, and your weather is good and hot, that moisture under the film should be gone by the end of this week. If it's not I would take it back. If they're legit at all they will immediately want to fix it because that is absolute taboo for a tinter. I have the same issue right now as I have two windows of the five I had done that have probably 5-8 bubbles apiece that are the size of maybe a ball-point pen tip if that makes sense. This guy has tinted four cars for me now and this work was just flat out sloppy. I just haven't had the chance to go in. Good luck.
