Frequently Asked Questions

How much energy will my window film really save?

Installing Sun-Gard Solar Control Film reduces the amount of solar heat entering your home or property which can result in lower cooling costs in the summer. However, determining exact energy savings can be difficult because many factors contribute to energy use such as the fluctuating cost of fuel, amount of direct sun exposure, type of film installed, type of glass and many others. However, typical payback in energy savings is usually 2 – 5 years, sometimes less for larger currently inefficient buildings.

How do I maintain my windows, after having window tint installed?

Wait 30 days and then simply clean windows as you normally would, using standard window cleaning solution and soft, lint-free cloth. Avoid using abrasive materials that may scratch or damage the film. If possible use non-ammonia based window cleaners.

How long does it take for my window film to "dry"?

Depending on weather conditions and the film type, it can take up to 30 sometimes even 45 days for the film to fully dry and cure. During this time, you may notice small water bubbles and/or a hazy appearance. This is normal and will disappear as the film dries. Once completely dry, your window film will be virtually undetectable and will look great for years to come.

Will solar window film kill my house plants?

No, solar control films will not harm your house plants or anything else on the interior of your home. As a matter of fact, solar window tinting will help protect your flooring and furnishings from fading caused by exposure to UV rays and solar heat.

How long will my new window tint last?

Made with only the highest grade raw materials - our window films are made to last several years. The exact life of the film depends on the film type, the climate and the type of glass in which it is installed. Most residential and commercial applications last in upwards of 10-15 years. There is also a warranty on the film become aged, which varies based on which film you use and where it is installed. Contact us for details.

Will my film turn purple and bubble?

NO - Solar control window tint is a metalized film it is nearly impossible for the films to change to purple in color. Over time you will see some fading/lightening, as you would see with any object exposed to the sun's rays.

How is the window film installed?

Window film is professionally installed by our well-trained installer. Most of our films are designed to be installed on the inside of your windows or glass doors.

The first step is preparation which includes thoroughly cleaning the windows and the immediate surrounding work space – this could require moving furniture, removing window treatments and protecting the flooring below. Then the film is sprayed with a specially formulated mounting solution to allow it to be properly positioned on the glass. Using professional tools and techniques, we will then form the film to the glass surface being sure to remove any excess water. We'll then trim the edges of the film for a perfect fit and complete the process with a final squeegee technique to ensure the film is in place.
