Window Film


How expensive is it?

For the material and installation our premium film is approx. $18.00 per sq. ft. but most of our standard films range from $7-10 per Sq. ft. + tax.

Do you have anything that people won’t see in?

Film will reflect the light where the light is the brightest. Therefore it works great in the day-light but at night you will want a blind if privacy is your main concern. If you notice office buildings with reflective glass during the day, at night when the lights are on you can see right in.

Interior application: Need a 2:1 ratio of light for it to work the best, in the case of privacy required for privacy of an office from a showroom. For example, the show room light should be brighter than the office that you want privacy for but still be able to see into showroom. SL-180 works well because it has grey on one side and silver on the glue side.

How is it applied?

It is a clean application as we clean the windows first with mild soapy water. Remove a backing sheet to expose a water sensitive glue that is on the film, position it carefully on the glass squeegee most of the water out and trim and clean up any water and the window sills.

Will it stop fading?

3 things generally cause fading, U.V light, heat, and visible light. Our films will eliminate 99% of the U.V. This is 40% of your fading. As soon as you add some tint to the film you are eliminating more of the visible light and heat and have a further reduction of fading.

How do you clean it?

Clean it like you would your windows with glass cleaner and a non-abrasive cloth like paper towels.

How long will it last?

Most of our films will perform well for 15-20 years. Our residential films are warranted for as long as you own your home.

Can I do it myself?

We strongly suggest a professional installation. We have found that some people who have tried it themselves are not satisfied with the end result. Having said that we have had some people successfully do it themselves. Please keep in mind that we do not offer any type of warranty on do-it-your-self installs.

I want to reduce the heat but I don’t want a film that people can see!

Our clear film will reduce the U.V. by 99%. Your best solution is a film with a mild tint to it in order to perform to reduce heat while providing optical clarity. Our customers find that the film actually enhances the view by reducing some of the glare as well.

Will it affect my plants?

Some plants may have an adjustment period to different light levels like they would to the changing seasons. Some plants will benefit and even flourish if the sun’s intensity has been too harsh for them.

How do I get tape glue off the window film?

A product like Goo Gone (home hardware carries it) works best to break down some of the glue. You want a minimum of wiping to reduce any possible scratching. It is best to avoid taping anything on the film.

Can I hang posters on it?

Most customers have found hanging posters from suction cups or drop down wire works best.

Do you have that sand blasted glass?

We have a film that is applied to glass that gives it the sandblasted appearance. It is easier to do /less expensive/ and easier to clean.


Blinds


What kind of blinds do you carry?

We carry numerous manufacture blinds as well as make several types ourselves.

Do you have the kind of blinds that I can see out and people can’t see in?

Our sunscreen and sunshade blinds offer outward visibility during the day but people can see in at night.

Are your blinds custom made?

All of our blinds are custom made. We do not carry stock sizes.

How do I clean a sunscreen?

Wiping with a damp cloth usually works best.

How do I clean a sunshade?

The material scratches quite easily so dusting with a soft non-abrasive cloth while hanging is recommended. When dusting is not enough, use a window cleaner and soft cloth.
