Tint brands

Has anyone heard of Johnson window film? If so, is it any good? The guy I used last time uses suntek carbon xp. Anyways, my neighbor across the street has a mobile guy coming this weekend to tint some of his vehicles, heís trying to get me to tint my truck as well. Supposedly for just over $200 the guy will install Johnson ceramic with a 5 year warranty. Is Johnson actually legitimate film? Iíve seen the tinters work and it looks good, however, the price is making me leery along with never hearing of Johnson. The guy Iíve previously used offers a lifetime warranty but is a good bit higher on price, $610. Both prices are for both sides (crew cab), front, rear, and sunroof.

Thanks,

Sure sounds like a "you get what you pay for".

Honestly right now that’s where I’m at... however my neighbors truck looks good. Just don’t know about the longevity of the film.

Yeah, 5 year warranty isnt that comforting, most are lifetime. But again, you're paying a quarter the price. Maybe someone who has actually had long term experience with it will post up.

As stated, you get what you pay for, will the guy be around in a year if a problem arrises? Once he takes his expenses out how can he do it for that price unless he is paying next to nothing for the film?

Thats another thing, if I just have to redo it, might as well go with the known.

Who knows honestly. Iím more of a buy once cry once vs pay for the same thing twice. The price is just enticing.

If you don't damage it the tint will last a long time. You could have it done two more times for what the lifetime warranty guy wants.

I looked up that brand and it doesn't sound terrible. They do have different films so you might want to find out wich one he would be using. Maybe he just doesn't put much value on his time.

And then theres this haha...Johnson Window Films is the ďOfficial Window Tint of West Coast CustomsĒ.

These tint brand threads crack me up. Find a guy whoís work you can see that someone you know has used for multiple vehicles. Damn the brand and the cost. My guy has done about 15 vehicles for me and my friends. He charges around $210 for a full sedan and $250 for a full truck. He just did 2 front windows in my Equinox for $65. His work is impeccable. Iíve had him tint the windows in my home and a buddyís house as well. I have no idea what brand film he uses. Every vehicle he has done has been kept for 3-7 years with never a problem. It looks perfect at install and perfect when we get rid of it. No way I would not use someone cause they only charge $200 if they come recommended by anyone whose opinion I value.

I've used Johnson Films Insulatir Ceramic on two vehicles now with zero complaints. Johnson is a reputable brand and has been around for a while. Any tint is only as good as the installer. Ceramic does transmit less heat, which I definitely notice.
