Origination Of Frederick Window Tinting
My journey began in the automotive electronics industry. As a teenager I was instilled with the practice of “doing it yourself” from my father. “Why pay someone else to do something you can figure out on your own”, he would say. After several hours, I figured out how to install my first car stereo.
After that monumental accomplishment, car audio swiftly became my passion and I pursued a career with Best Buy. After a brief period with them, I wanted to do more custom work like I saw on the tv show “Pimp My Ride”. That desire took me to a local customizing shop and I was able to satisfy my itch of being a part of the automotive customizing scene.
In addition to electronics, that shop also installed window film. I was mesmerized by the process and after some time, I pursued learning how to “do it myself”. After several frustrating months, I had learned the concept and acquired the skills needed to tint windows.
I spent some time installing both electronics and tint but swiftly fell in love with the instant gratification that installing window film provided. One moment a car acting as a fishbowl was in front of me and about an hour or so later the car was tinted and looked AMAZING! Needless to say, I was hooked and it wasn’t long before I wanted nothing to do with electronics.
As the years went on, I had moved from one shop to another picking up different techniques from each along the way. I also learned what not to do, far too often the customers were and are taken advantage of and that goes against the grain my up bringing. For that reason I decided to start my own company.
Formerly known as “No Gimmicks Window Tint”, I started a mobile automotive window tint service that quickly grew to what it is today. I now have a static location in one of the most popular cities in MD. Upon settling in to just one location I changed the name to Germantown Window Tinting. I still offer a “gimmick” free experience but felt the name change was relevant to accompany the additional services that are now offered i.e. residential and commercial.
I firmly believe if you take care of people and forget about how much money can be made, you’ll end up making more than enough and can go to sleep at night without any guilt. I am a God-fearing, Bible believing, born again Christian and hold tight to the truths of Scripture. I don’t believe in “karma” or “what goes around comes around’, but rather, that I am to mimic my Savior Jesus Christ. Life’s biggest problem has already been solved for me through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. All of my sins have been forgiven because of Him. While I remain on this earth, I am called to share my faith, love God and love my neighbors. I assure you, your in good hands by coming to Frederick Window Tinting!
