FAQs

HOW LONG DOES THE WINDOW FILM LAST?


Professionally installed Vista Window Film comes with a lifetime warranty against cracking, peeling, adhesive failure and demetallizing. (Some restrictions and limitations apply. Please see an authorized Vista Window Film dealer for details).


CAN I INSTALL LLUMAR AND VISTA FILM MYSELF?



LLumar and Vista films must be installed by a professional installer using highly specialized equipment and techniques.


DO THE FILMS REQUIRE SPECIAL CARE OR CLEANING?



Not really. While not quite as hard as glass, LLumar films are extremely scratch-resistant and may be cleaned with common household cleaners, non-abrasive paper towels, or cotton cleaning cloths. Caution should be exercised to prevent extreme gouging by hard, sharp, metallic objects.


DOES THE STATE OF MAINE REQUIRE A CERTIFICATE OF COMPLIANCE FOR AUTOMOTIVE WINDOW FILM?



Yes, The State of Maine requires that you obtain a Certificate of Compliance for window tinting material. When you have a professional window film installation at Portland Tint Inc., we provide you with the proper certification.


CAN I ROLL MY WINDOWS DOWN IMMEDIATELY AFTER HAVING AUTOMOTIVE WINDOW FILM INSTALLED?


It takes approximately 3 days for the film to properly cure. During the 3 day period, you will not be able to roll down your windows. We will place a sticker over your window switches to remind you.


WHAT IS THE LAW GOVERNING AUTOMOTIVE WINDOW FILM IN MAINE?


All vehicles, unless otherwise prohibited by law (I.E. a school bus), have unlimited tint applied to the side and rear windows behind the B post (behind the driver and passenger front seats) as long as the vehicle is equipped with two outside rearview mirrors that meet inspection standards. No tint certificate will be required for tinted glass behind the B post of a vehicle meeting this standard.


The driver’s and front seat passenger’s side windows may have tint applied as long as at least 35% of the light passes through the glass after the tint has been applied (the meter must read 35% or above). A tint certificate is required to show compliance for the front side windows.



The top of the windshield to the AS-1 line (if no AS-1 line, then the top 5”) may have unlimited tint applied. No tint certificate will be required for tinted glass on the top of the windshield meeting this standard.


WHAT TYPE OF WARRANTY DO YOU PROVIDE FOR AUTOMOTIVE WINDOW FILM?



When you have LLumar or FormulaOne window film professionally installed at Portland Tint Inc., we provide a national lifetime warranty. This warranty is in effect for as long as you own your vehicle.
