Window tint keeps it bright on the inside of your home, but makes it near impossible for outsiders to see in. This increase in privacy is beneficial for keeping the eyes of your nosey neighbours out, and more importantly will keep your activity and possessions private from any burglar who happens to be casing the area. Burglars take “window shopping” to a whole new level, and window tint is an excellent deterrent.
Window tint improves the comfort of your home by keeping the overall temperature more consistent. It also eliminates uncomfortable hot spots near windows and reduces annoying glare on your TV or computer screen. Your home will remain noticeably more comfortable, which will reduce your dependence on a/c and the related financial and environmental impact of running your air-conditioning during those hot summer months. Simply put, window film makes your home more efficient.
Long-term exposure to solar heat and UV rays will damage your valuables and furnishings. Sunlight will fade anything in its’ path and degrades the life of carpeting, wall coverings, drapes and even precious art and family heirlooms. The sun’s UV rays affect all surfaces, and can cause plastic and wood to crack and peel. Solar films block UV radiation, preserving the interior surfaces of your home.

The adhesive on professionally installed window film can stop shattered glass from flying, protecting your family from injuries. Unexpected weather, sudden storms, a wayward tree branch or baseball, or even an earthquake can be the cause of shattered and broken windows. Window tint will work to hold the parts of your window together in case of emergency. If you are looking for added window strength to stop burglars and protect from blasts, security window films are a perfect option, which we have written about right here.
