Window Tinting FAQs:
Q: What types of window film do I need?
A: There are two main categories of window films: Low E Glass and High Performance Films.
Low E glass is great if you want to add some extra insulation to your home, but it does not provide as much protection against heat gain as high performance films.
High performance films are made specifically for thermal control and energy efficiency purposes. They are designed to block up to 99% of visible light and they reflect up to 90% of infrared radiation. These films also reduce glare by reducing reflections off of other surfaces such as roadways and water.
High performance films are typically used in commercial buildings where there is a lot of heat gain through windows.
Q: How long should my windows be covered before applying a new film?
A: The answer depends on how much heat is being transferred into your home. If you live in an area that gets very cold during the winter months, we recommend covering your windows within 4 weeks of installation.
During this time period, any condensation that forms on the inside of the film could freeze and cause damage to the film.
Q: Can I apply my own window film?
A: Yes, you can apply your own window film yourself, however, we highly suggest hiring a professional installer who has experience working with these products.
You may find that you get better results when using a trained technician because they know exactly what type of film you need.
Q: Do I need to remove my existing window film first?
A: No, you don’t need to remove your old film prior to installing a new one. You just need to make sure that you clean your windows thoroughly.
Make sure to use a cleaning solution that does not contain ammonia or bleach.
Q: Will my current window film affect my new film?
A : Most often, no. In fact, most window films are formulated to work well together.
However, there are certain cases where the combination of films might create issues. For example, if you have a low e glass film installed over a high performance film, the low e glass film might interfere with the reflective properties of the high performance film.
In this case, you would need to replace the high performance film with a different product.
