Tint problems.............again?

Hi everyone,
So I had my tints done beginning of April and noticed I had some white dots on the rear window, so I called the place up and scheduled an appointment. So today I went up and he took off the old tint and replaced it. Everything looked good so I drove back home, 45 minute drive, and let the car sit in the sun. I just went out to check how it was doing and I see them AGAIN! What is causing this, dust? Or should I just wait it out a few days and go from there.
Thanks.

Maybe he just doesn't know how to apply tint? Or isn't cleaning it properly..

I would ask for a refund and take my business elsewhere. Sounds like the guy has no idea what he is doing.

Are they micro bubbles? They might clear up after a while.

They are tiny, but plentiful in one area. So frustrating! On top of that its a 40-45 minute drive to get there. Grrrrrr.

I believe they are bubbles. I had a few when I had mine done, but they went away after a week or so.

Thanks.

Having worked in a recon/tint shop what feels like a decade ago this might be in relation to the prep but have you looked yet today? If they're still present I would head back and see if they can have it re-applied or look for a second opinion!

Thanks for your input Alex, I check just now and they are still there. I believe it might be prep related also. So frustrating.

I had the same thing happen to me when I got my tint placed. I made 2 or 3 trips back to the shop (20-25 min drive) on my last trip the guy told me it could be the humidity (I'm from Texas) and in the days I had my tint placed it was raining. He told me to wait a week and if they were still present to go back. I waited the week and the spots were gone.

I paid for $400 for my tint but i got it at a place with the best reviews and best quality film they offered. I paid 20k for the car i am not going to be cheap when adding stuff to it.

I got my tint done over a year ago and I too have those tiny bubbles. I like to think it's cause the top goes down and messes up the tint with the air but in reality I only paid $100 so you get what you paid for

Anytime-If anything I would still followup with them-If it's persisting especially considering how new the work is I would definitely take it back to them, it shouldn't be like that!

I got my tint done here

Atlanta Window Tinting Service & Tinted Films for Autos | Glass Tiger Tinting

Their score is 4.9 out of 5 on google with 100 reviews.

I also put on the best quality tint film they got in there which is Pana Flex


Our PanaFlex Ceramic Car Window Film Series has been engineered to provide superior heat rejection with "zero" reflectivity. This is our best selling product, simply because it gives you everything that you would expect from a high performance window film. Massive heat reduction, 99% UV protection, and a cool custom look are just a few of the features this film will deliver.

Ceramic films are replacing older outdated "metalized" products and are superior in construction. These films are "signal" friendly, meaning that they will not interfere with electronic devices in your car like older metallic based films can.

This nano-ceramic tinting film is a "state of the art" technological advance in the window film world, and will exceed your expectations on performance. We have an in shop demo that will show you the awesome performance characteristics of this film, and you can actually feel how much heat this window tinting film stops. You will truly be amazed, and we invite you to stop by and see the demonstration.
Outstanding clarity, high infra red heat rejection capability makes this film a winner.
Ceramic Window Film Price Range In Atlanta: $280.00-$500.00


I suggest you find a tint place that offeres this kind of tint with great reviews on google and take your baby there.
