WINDOW TINTING FOR YOUR HOME
Many people don’t realise the benefits of tinting their house windows.
Window film is a very cost effective way to reduce the heat and glare coming through glass.
It also gives you excellent daytime privacy and increases the safety and security of your windows.
If you are considering window treatments such as curtains, blinds, awnings or shutters, you really should look at the benefits of window tinting first.
Most tinting is put on the inside of the glass. The installer will clean the glass and wipe around the edges before installing the film. It is a good idea to make sure your window frames and tracks are clean before the installer arrives.
In my many years of tinting in houses, I’ve noticed a few things that are common to most jobs:
You can feel the difference straight away!
As the tinting is done, you notice how much glare is reduced and you can feel there is not as much heat coming into the room.
You get privacy, so you can leave your curtains open and enjoy the view!
Many people have blinds, curtains and lace curtains that are kept closed all day to reduce heat and for privacy. After I tint the windows the customer will often get rid of the lace curtains and even the blinds, leaving just the curtains that they can close at night.
Everyone asks how to clean the window film!
Luckily, the film doesn’t get dirty as quickly as glass does. The surface of the film is actually smoother than glass and it seems to reject dirt and dust. The best way to clean it is with a microfiber cloth. You can also use soapy water or an ammonia free glass cleaner. To remove stubborn marks, you can also use methylated spirits on a rag.
