After researching Window tinters for quiet some time, I decided to drive around and get some prices. I wanted to get the windows tinted on my 2008 VW GTI, and I wanted a quality job. The first place I headed to was Tomball Tinters. I walked into the store, and right away was put off by all the dirt and grime that was everywhere. I walked to the counter and the lady working there clearly saw me enter, and decided to take another 5 minutes before asking us what we wanted. She went out and quoted our car for $145 and that they can do it in 45 minutes the next day. We took her card and headed to the VW dearlership. They gave us diretions to All-Start Auto tinting, which we went to next. Right as we walked in, there was a significant difference! Everything was very clean and neat, and looked very professional. We were instantly kindly greated by the lady working there, and she explained all our questions about the tinting opitions (color, heat rejection, difference btw. dyed and metallic). The Metallic was $224, but also comes with a lifetime manufactures warranty. It was very clear that we were going to go with All-Star Auto tinting. Since the GTI has curved windows, it is more challenging of a job to do. However, they years of experience and expertice clearly showed in a superb professional job! I was so amazed and the great work that was done and was glad to pay a little extra, because it's worth it! If I would have went to the other place, they would have slapped on some poorly done job in 45 minutes and it would look horrible. Here I have no worries with the nationwide lifetime warranty. There is no doubt in my mind that All-Start Auto Tiniting are the best Window Tinters around in the area, and I just can't stress what for a immaculate job they did! You will not regret going here! Just overall amazing friendly service, backed with the expertise and craftsmanship from experience.
"Bubba" and the receptionist are very friendly- I felt welcome in the office my first few steps in. It cost $170 for all around tinting on my 08' Sebring Covertible (3yr warranty)- and they were especially careful when handling it because the windows move up and down when the doors are opened due to it being a convertible. They took their time making sure everything was right and had it sit and cure for a bit afterwards before letting me drive off. The wait wasn't long - I was expecting it to take about 3 hours and it took exactly that- very good work and it didn't take away from my entire day. The building is a little tricky to find- it's on a little road before Ace hardware on the right (if you're coming from the steeplechase/harvest bend area). Behind the gathering of little shops when you first turn in. Overall I'm incredibly satisfied with the work done, time taken, and respect shown towards me as a customer- 5 stars all around :) Will be recommending All Star to others. Thank you!
