Frequently Asked Questions
For most passenger cars, the install usually can be completed in 2 hours or less. This of course depends on the complexity of the car or truck and how many windows there are to be tinted. Some vans or SUVS that have pop out windows can take longer, depending on how the windows are constructed. Older cars take longer to clean and require more labor to do a proper install. Please do not expect miracles on a 76 Silverado that has been in a barn for 20 years. It’s not going to happen. Older vehicles present individual problems that we are uniquely qualified to deal with. Give us a 2011 Camaro though, and look out…..
Aftermarket window tint is a completely different installation process from what you see from the factory. Factory tinted glass is actually dyed glass that has minimal protection properties. It is also made under extreme clean conditions. Car manufacturers are also very proud of their “tinted glass”, and this is reflected in the price you pay for the vehicle. Window film is a fraction of the cost. Buy your new car or truck without factory tinted glass and use the difference to put a child through school. Well, maybe you will not save that much, but you get the picture. The skill of the technician that applies the window film is your greatest asset in assuring a good, clean install. Do expect some minor imperfections however; it is nearly impossible to do this type of work with zero defects. Here at Hi-Line Window Tint, we have the most experienced installers and sales force in Rochester. No other company installs window film better. We're not bragging, we're just real familiar with our competition.
Automobile window tinting is an art form that requires skill and precision. There is a huge difference in the quality of the tint work performed by the “pros” and all the other guys. Here at Hi-Line Window Tint, Inc. we take our time to do the best job possible the first time. We do not need you to come back for a touch up. We make sure that the film installed on your vehicle is good to go when it leaves our shop. With gas prices the way they are, who has the time and money to be driving back and forth for something that should have been done right the first time. I am sure you have heard the old expression; “You get what you pay for”. A poor window film installation can make an otherwise beautiful vehicle look less attractive. It can change the vehicles focal point. Basically it sticks out like a sore thumb. Your friends may make fun of you. It makes a bad impression on the first date. The difference in the price we charge is due to the quality of work you are receiving. Be aware of all the hacks that have popped up in this business; believe us, there are lots of them. Even if you don’t select our company to do your installation, don’t go with the lowest price that you can find. Experienced technicians make all the difference, and it shows in the finished product. After all, you should only have to pay for this work one time. Make sure that you have a true professional do the work. Don’t let a hack touch your car, causing you to get your car re-tinted by a professional afterwards.
At Hi-Line Window Tint Inc. we primarily use hand cut patterns. Our Installers have more than 10 Years of experience so we know what we are doing. We also cut with a plotter through a Computer Cut System. Film is feed through a plotter and cut using a small blade. Film is not cut with a laser this does not exist. Our customers love our hand cut patterns because there is no gap at the top of your roll down windows. See picture below. We also DO NOT cut out the third break light.
Absolutely, we will be more than happy to come to your home or office, measure all the glass to be tinted and make a recommendation that will suit your needs and provide a solution to a problem that you may be experiencing.

There is nothing worse than hearing a story of how one of our guys was being chased down the street by a German Shepard. We hate bad press.
