 Paint Protection Mount Pleasant, 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 Mount Pleasant, 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 Mount Pleasant 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 Mount Pleasant, 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.

in Mount Pleasant, 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 Mount Pleasant, 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 Mount Pleasant, 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 Mount Pleasant, 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 Mount Pleasant, 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 Mount Pleasant, 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.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD)- Dirty hallways, smelly staircases and overflowing trash dumpsters are some of the issues that a family at The Boulevard apartments in Mount Pleasant are complaining about.

The family moved into their unit in February and noticed the issues shortly after.

“I just makes me feel very upset,” said Isla Clair, who lives at the complex. “We are paying a higher amount of rent to live here.”

Stains, urine, trash, vomit, dead bugs, and standing water can be found in the hallways according to Clair. Her family has gotten sick frequently since moving in.

“It made us sick just smelling it. It gave us headaches. It made my mother very nauseated,” said Clair. “It is constantly trashed around here. There’s a lack of maintenance that cleans up.”

Outside of the buildings, the trash dumpsters are overflowing.

“I do not see a trash truck very often here,” said Clair.

There is also a lack of security. According to Clair some of the exterior doors are not locked.

“Anyone can come in from the street, open the door and access our apartment building,” said Clair.

On the sidewalks along Coleman Boulevard there is more trash that poses a safety risk.

“There’s broken glass on the sidewalks where we walk our dogs,” said Clair. “I’ve even seen small children around here which concerns me as well with the glass on the ground.”

  • Clair and her parents are reaching a boiling point and say that The Boulevard’s management has been ignoring their service requests.

    “They seem to blow us off. They seem to sweep it under the rug whenever we complain. When we let them know of an issue they say that they’re going to take care of it then they don’t,” said Clair.

    Other livability issues are present at the complex. When the Clairs moved in, many of their appliances malfunctioned and the family has not had cold running water in their unit.

    If the complex’s management does not power wash the halls and clean up the trash then the Clairs will find another place to live.

    “I want them to look into the issues here or we are going to look into cutting our lease,” said Clair.

    MOUNT PLEASANT — A national specialty outdoor gear retailer plans to move into a former supermarket space in the state’s fourth-largest city, bringing its third outpost to South Carolina.

    Recreational Equipment Inc., or REI Co-op, announced June 6 it will take over the 21,535-square-foot space GreenWise Market that Publix vacated in 2020 in Indigo Square Shopping Center off U.S. Highway 17. The company plans to hire about 50 workers.

    Washington-based REI plans to open in the fall and stock an assortment of apparel, gear and expertise for camping, cycling, running, fitness, hiking, paddling, climbing and other outdoor activities. It also will include a full-service bike shop staffed by certified mechanics.

    The self-proclaimed largest consumer cooperative in the nation offers members who join a range of benefits, including a used gear trade-in program, discounts on experiences, rentals and shop services, a share of the co-op’s annual profits based on qualifying purchases and other perks.

    REI also partners with nonprofits to help maintain local trails and public lands.

    In South Carolina, the co-op has invested nearly $184,000 in South Carolina-based land agencies and nonprofit partners since 2017. Recent recipients include Anne Springs Close Greenway, Conestee Foundation Inc., Friends of Harbison State Forest, Friends of Paris Mountain, Friends of Sesqui and Palmetto Trail-parent Palmetto Conservation Foundation.

    The recreational equipment and gear retailer will be positioned about two miles north of competitor Dick’s Sporting Goods, which opened in 2015 near Highway 17 and Bowman Road. Other East Cooper businesses that could be affected by the newcomer include Haddrell’s Point Tackle & Supply, Henry’s Sporting Goods, Timeout Sport & Ski and Half-Moon Outfitters.

    Billy Richardson of Play It Again Sports said REI’s entry into the market may help his business more than hurt.

    “We have one category that crosses with REI, and that’s bikes,” Richardson said. “The majority of ours are lower end of $400 or less, and theirs are probably mostly boutique brands. I don’t think it will cross over too much with us, and it might help our business with people doing more trade-ins.”

    Beezer Molten, CEO of Half-Moon Outfitters, said REI’s move into the region wasn’t unexpected.

    “Anytime a big competitor moves into your marketplace, you are going to have some concerns,” Molten said. “I’m not surprised, not alarmed and not particularly worried. ... If you are intentionally trying to build a business, you try to come in under a big-box retailer and that requires more thoughtful urban infill decisions.”

    REI also will be vying for business with big-box outdoor rival Sportsman’s Warehouse near Tanger Outlets in North Charleston.

    In Mount Pleasant, the company is expanding to an affluent, fast-growing town with a population approaching 100,000, a median household income of about $105,000 and a median sales price for a single-family home of $820,000 as of April.

    REI’s two other stores in the Palmetto State are in Greenville and Columbia.

    The chain was founded in 1938 when a group of 23 climbing friends, united by their love for the outdoors, decided to source quality and affordable gear for their adventures. The retailer now has 175 locations in 41 states and the District of Columbia and employs 15,000 workers.

    Elijah Paige Could Be The Key To Notre Dame's 2023 Offensive Line Class

Alleman offensive tackle Charles Jagusah on Thursday, Notre Dame has solidified a dynamic five-man offensive line class in Harry Hiestand’s return to the staff.It’s hard to get better than a group of Jagusah, Sullivan Absher, Sam Pendleton, Elijah Paige and Joe Otting.The cl...

    With the commitment of Rock Island (Ill.) Alleman offensive tackle Charles Jagusah on Thursday, Notre Dame has solidified a dynamic five-man offensive line class in Harry Hiestand’s return to the staff.

    It’s hard to get better than a group of Jagusah, Sullivan Absher, Sam Pendleton, Elijah Paige and Joe Otting.

    The class is even more appealing when you project how favorably the group should be able to play together. From left tackle all the way to right, this group has outstanding upside and potential. Of course, left tackle is the position that most people talk most about up front, and for good reason.

    With the evolution of the spread offense the importance of the left and right tackle have become less and less separated. Still, that blindside protector trumps all, especially with Notre Dame's more pro-style oriented pass attack. For a long time, Mount Pleasant (S.C.) Oceanside Collegiate Academy standout Monroe Freeling was viewed as the ideal left tackle recruit for the Irish. With that fit becoming less and less likely, the commitment of Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle offensive tackle Elijah Paige becomes even more important.

    The 6-6, 300-pound offensive tackle is criminally underrated from a recruiting rankings perspective. He ranks as high as the No. 223 overall player and No. 23 offensive tackle in the 2023 recruiting class. Along with Rivals, those are the only two recruiting platforms that currently award him four-star status. That is, frankly, inexcusable.

    The talent is easy to spot on film. Boasting ideal size for the position, including outstanding length and foot quickness, there is an argument that Paige could have potentially the highest upside of any offensive lineman in the 2023 class, and one of the highest nationally.

    He was once viewed inappropriately as a “throw in” recruit in this class, almost holding a label as a depth piece. That drastically undersells the caliber of football player Paige is. Out of the five 2023 offensive line commits, he also projects most favorably to the left tackle position.

    Strength has been the main question mark with Paige, needing to add some weight to his frame, which is typically the case for most juniors in high school. Early indications are that he did just that this off-season.

    If the strength takes a huge jump then there is little to nitpick in Paige’s game. He also could be due for a massive jump in the recruiting rankings.

    His technique was already advanced for an offensive lineman his age. Paige also clearly already had every trait you would want from a premier offensive tackle. That makes him close to as complete a package as you will find.

    Notre Dame obviously needs that type of player in this class and Paige looks like he definitely provides that upside at the left tackle position. Paige quickly went from an outstanding member in the 2023 offensive line group to arguably the most important one in a hurry.
