Residential Window Tinting & Films
Your windows are an important part of your home. They allow the sun to shine in, as well as let you enjoy a view of the outdoors. Your windows, however, can also be a source of problems. If too much direct sunlight continually enters your house, the temperature of your house will be needlessly hot. Additionally, your upholstery, carpet and furniture can fade if exposed to too much directly sunlight.
When it’s hot or cold outside, your utility bills can be a significant expense. There are all sorts of ways you can insulate your home, but one of the most effective is the application of window films. Window films are a transparent, optically clear covering which reflects sunlight. Your home will be kept cool in warm weather and warm in cool weather.
Window Films Take the Burden off Your Thermostat
3M Sun Control Films are a great way to protect your home from the sun. These window films are professionally applied to your windows. This multi-layered optical film reflects solar energy. The result is less heat enters the home, which results in less need for your cooling systems. The overall result is lower power bills for you and your family.
The 3M Sun Control Films is made of a 28 micro-layered, tear-resistant Ultra safety film. Professionally installed, the film lets in 70% of all visible light, yet blocks up to 97% of the sun’s harmful infrared rays. The film also rejects up to 99.9% of damaging UV rays. This is all accomplished with a metal coating which is expertly applied to the film.
Just as the Sun Control Films keep heat outside when the weather is warm, the 3M Low E Film keeps it warm inside your home when the weather outside is cold. No matter which type you select, all of the 3M Window Films are a great way to insulate and protect your entire house, as well as control specific “hot spots” and “cold spots” throughout your home.
Windows aren’t just vulnerable to heat loss; they’re also vulnerable to breakage. In fact, your windows are the most vulnerable points in your home! Severe weather such as rain, snow, hail and wind damage can break your windows, which can even lead to damage inside your home.
Additionally, windows are a prime entry point for burglars. Fortunately, the 3M Window Films have Safety-Shield, a shatter-resistant technology which adds a layer of security to any window.
Even though the Safety-Shield is strong, it doesn’t affect visibility. Plus, the Prestige Series provides security without changing the look of your home, and has a lower than glass reflexivity.
Easy to Maintain and Long-Lasting
The 3M line of window films are always installed by a professional, 3M-approved technician. Once installed, the film needs to set for 30 days, but then it can be easily cleaned with household cleaners such as Windex.
3M Window Films have an abrasion-resistant coating, which ensures a durability. Addition
