Northwest Burbs IL - Tint

Hello all,

Seems that there is a following of us chi-towners. I was curious to know if any of you can recommend a place for me to get my windows tinted for a fair price. Seems like my old window tinting place went out of business. Thanks in advance.

I've heard very good things about "Shaded Days" in Lake Bluff.

I used a place in Milwaukee called Blackout Window Tint but that may be a bit far to drive. Had the fronts done a month or so ago 35%. Cost $89.00 as a reference on the cost.

We picked up a Dark Cherry 2013 MDX with Technology a couple of weeks ago. Got the front 2 windows tinted with Llumar 20% and the windshield with Llumar Air Blue 80%. The 20% matchs the rear windows perfectly. Also added the Xpel Advance clear bra for some chip protection in the front. Hard to tell it's even on there.
