About Elite Window Tinting
Elite Window Tinting is a local business serving the Northwest (Portland & Milwaukie) since 2000. While small enough to offer personalized service, we have recently expanded to two locations to better serve our growing clientele. We have over 30 years of combined experience in window tinting and paint protection, and our considerable excellence in the field is reflected in our numerous client testimonials. We are committed to providing the highest quality products available, and we take pride in offering honesty and dependability with all of our work.
About The Owners
Nortwest native and lifelong automobile enthusiast, Tad Ogland began his training in window tinting in 1993, working for a tint shop in Vancouver, Washington. After several years of perfecting the craft, he developed a reputation for excellence as well as a wide clientele base throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington. Ultimately, this led to his founding the original Elite Window Tinting in Milwaukie, Oregon in 2000. Now, with fifteen years under his tool belt, Tad's knowledge and experience in window and paint protection films is unparalleled in the region, and his name has virtually become synonymous with quality.
Zachary Hanks also got his start by working in a tint shop, but in the competitive sunbelt area of Santa Fe, New Mexico. He began his apprenticeship in 1994, and after working his way up to the lead installer in two years, he moved to Vancouver, Washington. It was here that he received advanced factory training from one of the worlds largest film manufacturers, training which helped earn him the reputation of being "the guy that tints the windows that others cannot." Zac also met and worked along side Tad in 1998, which led to him offering his prodigious installation expertise to Elite Window Tinting in 2003, and ultimately becoming partners with Tad to open Elite Window Tinting II LLC in Portland, Oregon in 2008.
Tad and Zac estimate that between the two of them, they have tinted more than 35,000 cars, trucks, vans, RVs and boats.
All of our 3M window films are backed with a lifetime warranty.
