About Us

Our founders, Damon Tilbe and Dan Vahl, along with their tint team have been successful in the Window Film industry for over 20 years.

Your time is valuable.

20 years ago, film was applied by unrolling the roll of film across each window and use a skilled artistic technician to trace a pattern from the actual glass. As you can probably imagine, this was quite time consuming. Your time expectation was to drop the car off for a full day. Since then, most companies have advanced to a digital cutting plotter and computer cut software that allows us to cut any vehicle window ever made precisely to the manufacturer specifications within 3-5 minutes.

Despite this huge improvement in cutting efficiency, most window tint installers in the area still have you waiting a full day for an installation process that doesn't take more than an hour.
