All the "good" tint shops I know of, are in Prince Wm. County.
I used to have this one fella tint my cars, over two decades worth of cars! He went strictly comercial (buldings) now and in his old shop, is a place called the Tint Shoppe (on Rt.1 across from Checkers Burgers about 1.5 miles s. of Rt 123) They actually get the tint work from the wheel/tire place behind the Potomac Mills Mall (near IKEA) and do a nice job. 98% good, they are WAY Better than any others I have seen/used personally.
If you have framed windows, ask how close to the top edge they tint. Mine are less than 1/8" from the top. Micro edges cost more, and may peel.
Also, if you have black dots around parts of your rear glass, be advised your tint will look terrible if that area isn't sanded away. They will do this right if you ask, no gurantees though they will want to do it - it akes a LONG TIME.
Does this help?
