About Windshield s
Most newer vehicles on the road today DO Not Have a blue shade band any longer....  some may have the option to have it when replacing your windshield.  If available we always quote the one with the shade band...

If not we would recommend having a Tint Company installing a shade band for you after your windshield has fully cured which is around two weeks. 

Does my vehicle have a shade band?

Looking at your windshield, if there is a 3”-6” strip of darker tinted glass at the top of the windshield where it meets the roof, then your vehicle has a shade band. Because this feature of the car or truck is not mandatory for driving on the road, take note if your vehicle has one, as they are not standard.
The purpose of a shade band is to provide protection from the glare drivers see from the sun. This sun visor strip is placed below the roof and just above your interior windshield visor. The goal of the strip is to block the sun while not obstructing your view.
How does the shade band help me when I’m driving?
Windshields are not completely clear and are often tinted to diminish the intensity of sunlight on your eyes when driving. The shade band, also known as the sun strip, is there to diffuse the sunlight in your eyes on a sunny day and especially just before sundown.

The shade band does not completely block out the light, as nothing should never fully obstruct your view of the road ahead. Depending on the auto maker, colors vary from gray to green to blue and many other sun-reducing shades.
