 Paint Protection Kiawah Island, SC

In today's hectic, always-on-the-go world, having a car is essential for transportation around the city. It's hard to imagine life without a car. Without them, you wouldn't be able to make it to work, the grocery store, the laundromat, or important events like your children's sports events. Having a vehicle is a necessity these days because we use them so much, but many car owners don't make strides to protect their investment or what might be inside that investment.

Aside from purchasing an extended warranty for your car, one of the best ways to protect your car is with professional vehicle window tinting in Kiawah Island, SC. What a warranty won't do, however, is boost curb appeal, reduce sun glare, block harmful radiation, protect your valuables, and provide privacy 24-hours a day.

At Troop Films LLC, we specialize in the finest ceramic window tints and certified paint protection films in South Carolina. We have been installing tints and paint protection film for several years and are always improving our techniques. As true window tinting experts, we have had the pleasure of working on so many different types of vehicles - from multi-million-dollar sports cars to junkers barely worth a grand. Doing so has allowed owner and certified installer Stephon Troop to refine his window tinting game and master techniques like clear bra installation. Today, he has a full-service team behind him, ready and waiting to serve loyal customers just like you.

Unlike some of our competitors, we take meticulous steps to ensure we provide the best work possible on your vehicle. We don't believe in taking shortcuts just to save a few cents. Instead, we go the extra mile to ensure all our customers are satisfied, whether it's completing special request projects or simply taking the time to ensure our work is done right. Whether you own a vintage Ferrari or a busted-up Ford, we aim to provide the highest quality car window tinting around.

When we say we're detail-oriented, we mean it. Here are just a few reasons why customers choose Troop Films for their car window tinting in South Carolina:

  • We remove vehicle parts like blinker covers to ensure dirt and grime aren't trapped.
  • We use computers to make sure your tint or coating is installed properly and precisely.
  • We remove emblems and badges so that we can wrap underneath them, giving your car more protection.
  • We wrap all edges of our ceramic window tints, so your job is seamless, and your tint remains effective year-round.

Curious about how we protect so many cars in South Carolina and the metro Kiawah Island area? Expertise, customer service, and affordable prices are just the start. Our excellence starts at the top - here are a few words from Troop Films owner, Stephon Troop.

Meet Your Certified Vehicle Window Tinting Installer

Stephon and his wife, both originally from the chilly state of Pennsylvania, moved to Kiawah Island, SC, for the warm beach weather and friendly Lowcountry residents.

Though Stephon now has many years of car window tinting under his belt, his training was completed under one of the best car window tint installers in the United States. Installing window tints, paint protection films, and ceramic coatings alongside during this time helped Stephon learn all the techniques and tricks needed to succeed. After training up north, Stephon continued to learn in Texas, where he became a certified paint protection and window tint installer. Since that time, Stephon has mastered even more car protection techniques to offer his customers a comprehensive list of services.

Car Window Tinting
in Kiawah Island, SC

Here is a simple truth: not all vehicle window tinting services are equal. Sure, you could spend a few bucks on a DIY window tinting kit, but going this route almost guarantees trouble. From unsightly fading to film bubbles, these offer the bare minimum in protection. With subpar quality, these kits also peel very quickly, causing you to spend more money to re-apply or have your tint professionally installed.

Speaking of window tinting services, few companies in South Carolina combine professional applications with the highest quality window tint film available. That's what sets Troop Films apart from other window tinting businesses - quality film, expert application, meticulous attention to detail, and the best customer service available.

Unlike some of our competitors, we use SunTek ceramic window tinting film, which is among the best in the industry. This technologically advanced product line provides outstanding, top-of-the-line films. With ceramic technology, infrared rejection and solar performance are enhanced, resulting in a non-metal construction that doesn't cause interference with portable or onboard electronic devices.

Our SunTek ceramic tint options come in a range of nine darkness levels. Each shade of tint has an ultra-attractive appearance, is non-reflective, and helps prevent color changes. With this fantastic film, you, your passengers, and your vehicle's interior are protected from 99% of UV rays from the sun. With outstanding infrared and heat rejection properties, your vehicle's interior comfort remains cooler and more comfortable all year long.

Most Common Reasons to Tint
Your Vehicle's Windows

Here are just a few of the most common reasons why South Carolina vehicle owners choose Troop Films for window tinting:

Privacy

Privacy

When we ask our customers why they want to tint their windows, privacy is often first on their list. When you begin to think about it, it makes sense. Why allow other drivers to invade your privacy when you can keep prying eyes off of your identity and personal belongings? It's not unreasonable to want privacy for you and your family while you're driving. You never know who you will pull up next to at a red light, and with our vehicle window tinting services in Kiawah Island, SC, they don't have to know you either.

Style

Style

There's something inherently cool about having your windows tinted. Even if you're not trying to impress anyone with your car, having your windows tinted helps give it a refined, modern look, which enhances curb appeal. If you're getting tired of the way your car or truck's exterior looks, spice it up a little and bring it into Troop Films for professional window tinting. We think you will be happy with the results.

Comfort

Comfort

Have you ever sat down in your vehicle in the middle of summer, after it's been sitting outside all day? It feels like your car has turned into an oven. Sometimes, it can get so hot in your car that it's hard to grip the steering wheel. As you probably already know, summers in South Carolina can be brutal. When the temperatures heat up in the Lowcountry, your vehicle traps most of that heat, causing interior temperatures to reach unsafe levels. But when you have your windows tinted with Troop Films, your car will stay cooler in the spring and summer. With ceramic film, glare from headlights and streetlights is also reduced, meaning you can see easier without having to strain your eyes. More comfort and more safety - what's not to love?

Health and Safety

Health and Safety

When you think about car window tinting, most folks don't think about the health and safety benefits involved. But when it comes to you and your passengers, safety should be top of your list. High temps in your vehicle, usually caused by UV rays, are a safety concern not only for your skin and eyes but for your car's safety mechanisms. This is especially true for your airbags, which can be damaged and left inoperable when interior temperatures are high enough. Obviously, that's a huge safety risk.

Fading Dashboard

Fading Dashboard

Over time, your vehicle's dashboard will take a beating when your car is left out in the sun. The combo of harmful UV rays and high heat can ruin dashboard materials, leaving them cracked, faded, and in need of repair. Fixing your dashboard can be a costly endeavor. However, doing so can be avoided with high-quality ceramic tints from Troop Films.

Benefits of Vehicle Window Tinting
in Kiawah Island, SC

If you're still on the fence about ceramic window tinting for your vehicle, consider
the following benefits of our SunTek films:

The Ultimate Protection: Car
Window Tinting and Paint
Protection Film in Kiawah Island, SC

They say the first cut is always the deepest, and that's certainly true when it comes to your vehicle. Few things are as frustrating as getting out of your car, only to realize that a stray rock has dented your favorite car or truck. Dents and scratches from road debris like rocks and even acids from bugs all take their toll on your vehicle's overall appearance and value. Along with UV rays, "road rash" from winter salt, sand, rocks, pebbles, branches, and more will compromise your vehicle's integrity and can mean lower resale value.

If you're looking for total protection from heat and UV rays as well as road debris, we recommend car window tinting in Kiawah Island, SC along with our paint protection film application. Paint protection film, also called your vehicle's clear bra, provides a shield of protection from road rash, preserves your car's paint job, increases its longevity, and can increase its resale value. Paint protection film is very useful for everyday use, especially if you're driving on the highway or simply want to protect your favorite car. Clear bras are also helpful for work vehicles, which often receive dents and scratches due to the nature of their work.

At Troop Film, our SunTek paint protection film is among the highest quality films in the industry. Common application areas include:

  • Vehicle Paint
  • Door Handles
  • Headlights
  • Rear Fenders
  • Front Bumpers
  • Mirrors
  • Hoods
 PPF Kiawah Island, SC

Our paint protection films are completely reinvented products that merge the hydrophobicity of ceramic with premium, self-healing paint protection film. Common benefits of having your vehicle protected with paint film include:

01

Endurance

Your car's finish will stay flawless and fresh with our car protection films, which shield against salt, rocks, insects, and other debris.

02

Resistance

Our HydroResist top-coat protection boosts your vehicle's stain resistance by limiting dirt and water accumulation on your protection film's surface.

03

Self-Healing

It sounds too good to be true, but our films really do heal themselves by using the heat from the sun or your vehicle's engine.

04

Look Great

Our paint protection films are available in high gloss and matte finishes, leaving your car with outstanding optics and clarity.

Have Questions? We've Got Answers!

It’s high time you added this Lowcountry destination to your beach bucket list.

Follow winding, oak-shaded roads 25 miles southwest of downtown Charleston's cobblestone streets and celebrated restaurant scene, and you'll find yourself on Kiawah Island. Carved by the Kiawah River on one side and fronting the Atlantic Ocean on the other, the barrier island is a true escape. Here, nature reigns supreme: ten miles of beaches roll out along the Atlantic; cicadas form their own sort of soundtrack; and lights-out is often determined by the sea turtles' nesting season. Even so, there's plenty to do for travelers who like their time in nature punctuated with good food, luxurious creature comforts, and a frozen drink in hand. Here are seven things to do in Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

Stay Like a Local

For access to all of Kiawah's amenities, from bike rentals to pools, you'll have to stay on the island. For an experience that's luxurious but unpretentious, book a room at The Sanctuary, an oceanfront hotel known for its five-star service and elevated onsite dining. For families who want a little room to spread out (or a kitchen), villa and home rentals are a smart choice; reserve through the resort directly, or book through a site like VRBO or Airbnb.

Spend a Day on the Sand

On the west end of the island, Beachwalker Park is Kiawah's only public beach access feels like a hidden gem, thanks to its wide, unspoiled expanses of sand. It offers the best of both worlds too: in addition to the ocean frontage, you can also score views of the Kiawah River here.

Hit the Links

Five state-of-the-art golf courses are open to the public. For avid fans of the sport, the Ocean Course alone makes Kiawah worth the trip. Host to two PGA Championships, the 18-hole course is not for the faint of heart. Raised above the dunes to capitalize on the expansive shore views, golfers are also subjected to ocean breezes (which don't exactly make for an easy or predictable trip around the green). Try Cougar Point for marsh views and a slightly less technical experience.

Go for a Cruise

One of the best ways to explore the island is to leave the car in park and take a beach cruiser for a spin (you can reserve them through the resort or bring your own). Between 30 miles of paved trails and 10 miles of hard-packed beach, there's no shortage of routes to explore. Ask for directions to the Marsh View Tower, an observation deck primed for birdwatching and soaking in the marsh and river scenery.

Visit Heron Park Nature Center

The naturalists here will school you in many of the species who call the island home, from bobcats and white-tailed deer to loggerhead sea turtles and American alligators. Sign up for a guided tour, like "Back Island Birding", "Marsh Kayaking," or "Ocean Seining and Beach Combing," or ask for their recommendations for the best nature-spotting places in the area.

Explore Freshfields Village

Built around a lush lawn, Freshfields Village has plenty of restaurants and shops to explore, plus a boutique stay, the Andell Inn. Pick up a beach read at Indigo Books; snag treats for your four-legged friends at Dolitte's; and gear up for island adventures SeaCoast Sports and Outfitters. Start the morning with coffee and a breakfast sandwich from Java Java; settle in for grilled cheese and a milkshake at retro Vincent's Drugstore & Soda Fountain; or cap off the day with house-made frosé from newly opened The Co-Op. Check their calendar for seasonal events, like summertime's "Music on the Green" concert series and farmer's market.

Venture to Bohicket Marina & Market

Make the short drive to neighboring Seabrook Island for a taste of the area's salty maritime culture. Snag a umbrella-shaded table on the upper deck at Salty Dog Café for fresh catch, a cold beer, and riverfront views of the boats coming and going from the marina.

The PGA Tour called on Congaree Golf Club in South Carolina to fill a hole in its 2021 schedule and will do the same this fall.

The Tour needed a replacement tournament for The CJ Cup — usually played in Korea — and will turn to Congaree Golf Club, the private club located in northern Jasper County a few miles off Interstate 95 near Ridgeland. The news was announced Wednesday morning.

The Congaree tournament in 2022 will be called The CJ Cup in South Carolina. Dates are Oct. 16-23, with tournament play Oct. 20-23. Information regarding tickets and volunteer opportunities will be released soon, according to organizers.

“The PGA Tour is thrilled to bring The CJ Cup in South Carolina to the United States this October,” Christian Hardy, the PGA Tour’s senior vice president for international, said in a statement. “This event has provided a great platform on which to showcase golf’s top Korean players, and we are confident that Congaree will once again serve as a fantastic venue for hosting one of the Tour’s premier tournaments.”

The PGA Tour is going into the final months of its wrap-around schedule that ends in the fall, and the 2022-23 slate has not been announced. The previous five CJ Cups have been played in October. Due to the pandemic, the CJ Cup moved out of South Korea to Las Vegas the past two years.

The CJ Cup in South Carolina will have a 78-man field that includes five Korea Professional Golfers’ Association players plus the top three Korean players in the Official World Golf Ranking. The rest of the field will be built from the 2021-22 FedExCup points list and sponsor exemptions. The event will not have a 36-hole cut.

Congaree staged the Palmetto Championship at Congaree in June 2021 when the Tour needed a stop-gap event to replace the RBC Canadian Open, which was canceled by travel restrictions from the coronavirus outbreak.

The CJ Cup will be the state’s second event on the PGA Tour schedule. The annual RBC Heritage tournament will take place in Hilton Head in April of 2023.

The state of South Carolina stepped in and provided $6 million in sponsorship funds and created what CBS announcer Jim Nantz dubbed the South Carolina swing — the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head Island, the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island and the Palmetto Championship.

Duane Parrish, who heads the state of South Carolina’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, spearheaded the effort to bring the 2021 tournament to the state. He took the idea to Gov. Henry McMaster, who approved the expenditure, and similar arrangements — the state providing sponsorship money — are expected on the 2022 tournament.

“For media exposure, we will have 16 (advertising spots) on the Golf Channel on Thursday and Friday and 16 on CBS on Saturday and Sunday,” Parrish said in discussing the 2021 Palmetto Championship at Congaree. “The media exposure includes the social media prior to the tournament. . . . Every time they say ‘South Carolina’ is an advertising spot. We’re not talking about just one area; we’re talking about the entire state.

“Golfers can’t just walk up and play Congaree; it’s a private club,” Parris said. “But the media coverage will illustrate just how much South Carolina has to offer in golf and in tourism. What we get out of the Heritage every year would cost a lot more than $6 million. You just can’t buy that kind of coverage, and we’re targeting a golf audience.”

The Golf Channel has been the primary television outlet in the United States for the PGA Tour’s fall events.

The founders of Congaree, Dan Friedkin and the late Bob McNair, sough to create a new philanthropic model with the course that unites “ambassadors” with a shared purpose to impact positively the lives of young people, locally and around the world, by providing education and vocational opportunities through golf.

Famed architect Tom Fazio designed the course that received rave reviews, and the owners made no secret of big-time ambitions. Their first dealings with the PGA Tour involved bidding to host the 2025 Presidents Cup, which moved to 2026 by the pandemic. Insiders say Congaree made an impressive presentation, but the PGA Tour ultimately chose Medinah No. 3 near Chicago.

The next available Presidents Cup date in the U.S. will be in 2030. Ryder Cup sites in this country have been selected through 2033.

Garrick Higgo, a native of South Africa making his second PGA Tour start, won the Palmetto Championship at Congaree after leader Chesson Hadley lost a two-shot lead with bogeys on his final three holes.

From the beginning, the Palmetto Championship would be a one-time deal, cobbled together at the 11th hour to replace the RBC Canadian Open that returned in 2022.

The Palmetto “is a first step,” Ty Votaw, then the PGA Tour’s executive vice president, said in previewing the 2021 tourney at Congaree. “Whether we have another opportunity, we’ll have to see. We’re fortunate to have a full schedule. But if something comes up and Congaree has a willingness.

“Whether it’s an annual thing or it’s once every four, five, six, seven years, whatever it is, we’re open to it because, again, their commitment to excellence makes it an easy call.”

? The RBC Heritage tournament in Hilton Head will be played April 13-16, 2023

? The CJ Cup will be played at Congaree Golf Club on Oct. 20-23, 2022

A new oceanfront condominium development on Kiawah Island recently sold out months ahead of schedule because of high demand.

Colorado-based developer East West Partners, which has an office in Charleston, said all 78 units in six buildings overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in The Cape on Kiawah fetched more than $284 million, an average price of $3.64 million each.

The 14-acre development, expected to be completed in 2023, extends across 1,000 feet of beachfront property where the Kiawah River meets the ocean in the West Beach community on the upscale resort island south of Charleston.

The condominiums are the first whole ownership luxury residences on the island in 40 years, according to the developer.

“East West Partners is devoted to creating homeowner experiences that combine a desirable location, luxury amenities, strong community aspect, turnkey living, sustainably-driven design and connection to nature,” said Miller Harper, managing partner of East West Partners’ Charleston developments.

“The sales success has been incredible, and we see long-term interest continuing strong, namely with luxury living in the Lowcountry area in such high demand,” he said.

East West launched Phase I, offering 40 units, in June 2021. After stronger-than-expected demand, the developer accelerated the project for the second phase with an additional 38 residences.

East West Hospitality will be onsite to offer owners maintenance and concierge services during the move-in period. Owners also will have access to The Cape Club, a new oceanfront beach club. It will be operated by the Kiawah Island Club and feature an infinity pool, sun deck, al fresco food and beverages at the property’s outdoor bar and grill, fitness center and array of watersports.

The Cape Club will also be home to Kiawah Island Club owned-and-operated guest cottages available for rent by members and their guests.

Owners at The Cape will enjoy a private rooftop deck, sand rooms with owner storage, grand lawn for games and gathering, outdoor showers, outdoor pet washing stations, bike racks, electric vehicle charging stations, a dune garden and oceanfront boardwalks.

Homebuyers also can purchase a membership to the exclusive Kiawah Island Club, a private membership club on the island that offers access to amenities such as two championship golf courses and luxurious clubhouses, six pools, The Beach Club, Marsh House, a 9,000-square-foot sports pavilion with tennis, squash and pickleball courts, weight training center, Olympic pool, spa and sporting club for shooting clays and skeet.

Residences at The Cape on Kiawah in Charleston County will only be available for long-term rental of 45 days and over.

A prominent coastal retail center in the Charleston area is now under new ownership for the third time in its 17-year history.

Columbia-based Edens, a national retail real estate owner, operator and developer, announced June 15 it has acquired Freshfields Village between Kiawah and Seabrook islands at the south end of Betsy Kerrison Parkway.

The new owner paid just under $125 million for the retail center, according to Charleston County land records.

The 191,850-square-foot shopping center, anchored by Harris Teeter supermarket, last changed hands for $59.8 million in 2013, when Northwood Investors of New York City acquired the roughly 23-acre property from Kiawah Partners.

“We are honored and excited to become the stewards of Freshfields Village,” said Edens’ CEO Jodie W. McLean. “Through its thoughtful curation of programming and public space activation, this iconic property has earned its reputation as a place where lasting memories and connections are made — an ethos that very much aligns with our mission to enrich community.”

She called Freshfields a “pillar of the Lowcountry” and noted her bullishness about the shopping center business.

“I’ve never been more optimistic about brick-and-mortar retail than I am today,” McLean said. “I think we will still have some rightsizing of retail in this country, but our foot traffic is way up since pre-Covid numbers. ... Stores that are embedded in neighborhoods that are designed where people come together are in high demand. We think Freshfields fits that model to a tee.”

The shopping center, with 99 percent occupancy, is home to more than 70 retailers, restaurants and service-oriented businesses. It also is the site of more than 80 public events throughout the year.

The merchant mix at Freshfields includes national, regional and Lowcountry businesses such as Lululemon, Faherty, Bluemercury, Johnny Was, Vineyard Vines, Las Olas, GDC Home and The Co-Op. Several big banks also operate branches at the property.

Edens was founded in the Palmetto State capital in 1966 and now has a portfolio of 110 properties through the U.S. in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Charlotte, Dallas, Denver, Hartford, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C.

Almost all of the company’s retail centers are open-air shopping destinations.

In South Carolina, Edens’ holdings include Trenholm Plaza, Crosshill Shopping Center and Columbiana Station, all in Columbia.
