Large windows can provide your room with an open-air feel, but it can also attract a lot of heat, which is why it needs to be tinted. This is especially important if you live in a hot area. However, applying a tint on to an abnormally large window can be quite a daunting task, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. This is why it’s important to let the professionals do it to avoid damaging the window and to make sure that the job gets done meticulously.
HOW DOES TINTING LARGE WINDOWS BENEFIT YOU?
Untinted windows allow heat to pass through freely, meaning that the heat will come into the room and it just stays there. Your room will heat up very quickly, meaning that your AC will have to work twice as hard to keep the room cool. Large windows only multiply this effect, and it emphasizes why you need to tint them.
While there are available DIY options out there, we don’t recommend that you tint your own windows, especially for these large windows. There’s no guarantee that the films are of high quality and that the tint job will be perfect. We highly advise you hire a team of professionals to deal with all of your tinting needs.
THE UNIQUE PROCESS OF WINDOW TINTING LARGE WINDOWS
The process is mostly the same for large windows, but it can be significantly more difficult in terms of measuring, cutting and installation of the film, particularly if the roll requires multiple parallel strips, to make these flush and not appear on the completed job takes a skilled professional. It will typically require more than one person to complete the process efficiently.
The process of installing large window films is similar to applying a wallpaper. The two vertical sides need to overlap, and then the centre of both of the layers will need to be trimmed with a knife and a ruler. The loose part will then be peeled from the top down, and the excess pieces of film will be discarded from underneath.
The glass will then need to be rewetted before the film is applied slowly and steadily from top to bottom.
Two people are needed for the removal of the liner. One person will face the film and hold it perpendicular to the floor while the other peel the liner off in a smooth and straight motion towards the floor. The glass will then be sprayed wet again before the film is applied.
