Sunguard Window Tinting
Tried using this company for a commercial renovation with an absolute deadline. Made arrangements directly with the owner two weeks before commencement. Called when the glass was ready and was guaranteed to have it done the next day. The last available day for the project. The following day they backed out at the last minute on their spoken guarantee because "an employee called in sick". Then told me that they never promised to get the work done on short notice. Unreliable with a lack of integrity.

After-Hours Window Tinting
Went to this tinting store and wow how amazing my mustang looks now. I was recommended to this store by a friend and i am sooooo happy i came in. I checked around town before coming in and they have the best prices around. The guy who runs this place really knows what he is doing and took his time to explain the differences in the different tints he had. My car is way cooler and looks so sharp. Janet, the girl in the front kept me company while i was waiting. She is really warm and made the time fly. The before and afters are incredible and i could not be happier with the job done. I will definitely be passing their info on

Horrible Experience! They tinted my windows and broke my rear view mirror-when I went back to ask them to please fix it-they denied they broke it!! It was fine before they worked on my car! Not an honest business.

STAY AWAY! WORTH THE LONG READ! I brought my vehicle to Chris in October of 2014 to have my windows tinted. When I saw the work he did, I was quite disappointed. I gave him the benefit of the doubt when he said the excessive bubbles would go away. They didn't. Over a week later, there were still bubbles - some of which had small pieces of dirt under them! There were also gaps along the window edges where the outside light was noticeably shining in the vehicle. When I brought my truck to him and showed him the problems, he concurred that the work was unacceptable and told me if I came back the next Monday at 9am, he would remove the tint and refund my money. Chris called and left me a voicemail Monday morning at 8am saying "I am shutting down my shop, you will not be able to contact me and I will not be refunding your money." I somehow managed to reach him one last time and since he refused to refund my money, just asked him to remove the tint, which he did not do. This was the last time I was able to get a hold of him. I had accepted the fact I would never see that money again ($180). Oh, and I had to pay someone else to remove the tint and redo it ($15/window + the new tint job). The issue was left at this for about 7 months, as I was about to move out of town.Yesterday, May 18th, 2015, I happened to be in Lafayette running errands with a friend and saw his shop was open again. I had my friend stop there (who, by the way, witnessed every bit of the following) so I could talk with Chris about the situation. When questioned, he admitted to remembering that he messed up and owed me money. He told me to come back the next day and he'd have my money for me. I asked him to please give my my money right then and there, as he lied to me back in October and as a result, didn't trust him and because I was already there. He refused to refund me...at first. I then refused to leave the shop until he gave me a refund. The situation escalated to an extreme I was not expecting and definitely not prepared for. He began to scream at me saying this such as "Get the f*** out of my shop!", "You have 5 seconds to get out or you're going to see what happens!" Chris told me to go wait outside for 5 minutes and he'd bring me the money. I didn't believe him, so I still refused. HE then ordered his receptionist to call the cops on ME! I was a paying customer! Chris then reached behind the counter and pulled out a METAL BASEBALL BAT, started bumping chests with me screaming "You are not as bad as me!" Literally threatening with with a baseball bat in his place of work! I then decided to walk outside, and believe it or not, he did come outside with the cash a few moments later. Chris was full of excuses when he finally gave me my money. I took my money and left. The man clearly has serious anger issues and needless to say, conducts his business far more unprofessional & immature than that of a 6 year old. Also, he expresses identical traits of a drug addict, perhaps that fuels the fire in his angry, irrational, small and simple little mind. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO STAY FAR FAR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE! TERRIBLE WORK AND TERRIBLE BUSINESS!

Sunguard Window Tinting
Horrible! The owner and all of his employees are extremely rude and arrogant. At first the price was supposed to be around 130.. AFTER I had already dropped off my car, got a ride back to work and they had already began working on the car, then they call me to tell me how it's going to be over $200.. That conversation was not pleasant and I should have known from that point what troubles would lie ahead. I go to pick my car up and it will not start. I tried everything I could on the spot, replaced the battery, checked spark, etc. I had to pay a tow truck $80 in order for it to be towed. I had to pay a mechanic $75 for my cluster gauges to be fixed and I had to buy a $550 ABS module that was shorted out at some point while the car was in their hands. I get the car fixed and running again, and the weekend after all this happened I decide to wash the car. In the process of washing my car I discover that one of my window mirror mouldings has been broken. Doesn't seem like I big deal right? Wrong! The problem is that the moulding is part of the mirror and the mirrors are powered. So now I have to buy a $150 mirror with a motor in it. Then I have to get it primed and painted so that it matches my cars paint. I went to Sunguard on my lunch break in the beginning of the next week. Immediately I am blown off and told that they did nothing with the outside of the windows. Yeah Right! I showed him that the driver side rubber moulding next to the mirror had been tampered with and he told me that was not them. I asked him to please speak with the owner, he said he wasn't there, took my number and said he would call me. Weeks pass by and no call. I stop by again and still no owner. The woman at the counter tells me that she is not affiliated with Sunguard and that she is the owner of rhino lining. She again takes down my number and tells me that the owner will call me. A week or two passes and finally he calls me. He immediately begins to tell me how he worked on the car himself and how they don't ever touch the outside of the windows. He says that I didn't call until the next week after they worked on it and that someone must have tried to break into it. He asked me to bring the car, so I did immediately. I show him the busted passenger side plastic moulding and all he wants to do is look at the driver side where the rubber peice had been tampered with (by them.) He shows me an SUV and says I promise you we never do anything with the outside of the windows and begins to tell me how long his company has been there.. After arguing a bit he tells me to leave and that he is not going to fix the little rubber moulding on the driver side. I told him that I was not concerned about the rubber, and that I am concerned about having to replace my mirror after everything else that I already had to pay for. I told him that I can fix the rubber myself and that I left it as evidence to show him that his installers did do something with the mouldings on the outside of the windows. Some woman comes out to scream in my face and he told me to leave again so I said that I'd see him in court. Beware they will upsale you and then try to push you around when THEY mess something up!
Tips & Advices
Window tint film is typically applied to the inside of your car window. The film is first laid across the outside of the car window, and it's cut to fit the window's dimensions. Then the trimmed piece of tint film is installed on the inside of the car window.
Tinted windows offer several benefits. They can reduce the amount of heat in a car's cabin by as much as 50 percent, and this can lighten your fuel bill by making you less reliant on air conditioning in hot weather. Tinted windows block UV light, and this can protect drivers and passengers  from sunburn and skin cancer. Also, tinted windows protect the components of a car's cabin from being faded by the sun.
Ceramic tint is a type of film used to darken windows. Ceramic tint is a high-quality product, and it's typically the most expensive type of film tint on the market. This type of tint contains a ceramic particle that nonconductive and nonmetallic, and it can reduce solar heat within your car's cabin by as much as 50 percent.
A limo tint is one of the darkest tints available on the market. A limo tint has a VLT of just 5 percent. This means that the tint allows just 5 percent of exterior light to enter the car's cabin. A limo tint on the front side windows is illegal in all states except Michigan.
Window tinting percentages refer to the amount of light that a tint allows into a vehicle's cabin. This is known as the tint's visible light transference, or VLT. The higher the VLT, the lighter the tint of the window. For example, a window with a VLT of 30 percent would be much darker than a window with a VLT of 70 percent.
