3 Ways to Protect Your Car From Sun Damage

To safeguard your car and avoid incurring unnecessary expenses, here are 3 ways you can protect your vehicle against sun damage, and how the experts at Horizon Auto Glass & Tint can help!

 Light Window Tint

Horizon Auto Glass & Tint can apply a light tint to your car’s windows to minimize premature aging of leather and upholstery caused by sun exposure. A lighter tint shade also helps you control your car’s indoor temperature, keeping you cooler in the summer. A light tint can also be applied to your windshield to safeguard your dashboard from sun damage. The state allows up to 50% tints for windshields to ensure there’s enough protection from the sun’s glare as well as sufficient visibility for the driver. Trust Horizon Auto Glass & Tint to help determine what tint is right for you.

Dark Window Tint

A darker tint is also available to apply to your vehicle’s windows to protect it from damage. This shade provided by the tint completely blocks out UV rays and keeps your vehicle cool. Keep in mind that a darker tint blocks out more solar energy, so you will have better sun protection compared to using a lighter tint shade. Both light and dark tint shades are designed to last without tearing or peeling off, so you don’t have to worry about compromising your vehicle’s protection from the sun. Horizon Auto Glass & Tint will help you choose the right tint for your vehicle, as well as for your specific needs.
