3 Reasons why you should have your Office Windows Tinted

When returning home, you should be stepping into a place of comfort and relaxation – a place where you’re completely at ease. The outside world can’t get you here. Even while the rain pours, you’re protected in your home, warm and dry. Although the rain can’t touch you while you’re indoors, the sun can. And although the natural lighting can certainly be pleasant, it’s important for you to protect yourself from the dangerous effects of the sun.

Why not consider window tints? By applying some protective film to your windows, you won’t only be protected from the rain. Here are three reasons to tint the windows of your home:

 

It extends the lifespan of your furnishings

Did you know that the sun can damage your furniture, drapes, carpets, and more? Chances are you spent a lot on that luxurious rug and that comfortable sofa. Don’t let the sun damage your investment and force you to repair or replace it faster than you should.

When sunlight comes through your glass windows or doors, it fades cloth-covered furniture and other fabrics you may have inside your home. In fact, a couple of months could leave you with a fabric colour that is completely different from what it was before! Not only does the sun affect the aesthetic quality of your belongings but it weakens it and reduces its lifespan. Professional window film will keep the damaging sunlight out so you can enjoy an extended lifespan for your furnishings.

 

It protects your flooring

Although you may think that your hardwood floors are safe from the sun, it isn’t. One of the most expensive parts of a home is the flooring. However, great hardwood floors also look incredible and add quite a bit of functional and aesthetic appeal to your space.

To keep your hardwood floors from fading, have film applied to your windows. This will ensure that your floors continue to look brand-new for years!

 

It keeps you safe from UV rays

The beautiful sunlight that shines through your windows and lights up your home also comes with some damaging effects. Aside from damaging your furnishings and your flooring, it also harms you. It isn’t enough to feel comfortable inside your air-conditioned home. You need to know that your skin and body is protected from those UV rays.

Don’t think that you’re safe from sunlight just because you’re indoors. When the sun enters your home, it can still burn and damage your skin if you aren’t protecting yourself. Sure, you could apply (and constantly re-apply) sunscreen every morning, but would that really be the best use of your time and money? You deserve to feel comfortable and safe within your home even without sunscreen.

This is why you should install window tint. Regardless of whether you choose a decorative texture or a standard transparent film, you’ll be protecting your health as well as your assets. Get in touch with us today for high-quality, affordable window tint installation.

Window Tinting For your Home – Our Ultimate Guide

Thinking of outfitting your windows with some film? Whether you know exactly what you want or you’re just trying to find out what window tint can do for you, you’re in the right place.

Without further ado, here’s Window Tinting 101!

What’s window tinting?

Window films are thin sheets of durable polyester laminate that is treated in different ways to improve the capabilities of regular glass windows. They are made to adhere to the glass on one side and are made to be scratch-resistant on the other. Most of the time, window films are applied to the inside of the glass. There are two main ways that you can get window film. First, you could look for a certified dealer and have him or her source and install it for you. Second, you could purchase a DIY kit at the local home center and install it on your own.

In this article, we’ll be focusing on professionally-installed windows.

What can window film do for me?

You may think that window tints are what celebrities put on their windows to keep people from seeing inside. Although window film can certainly do that, anyone can benefit from installing the material on their windows. The average home is made of 15% glass. Since glass is a very poor insulator, that means that quite a bit of heat is being lost through your glass every single day. Just by adding a layer of extra insulation to your windows, you can drop your energy bills by up to 50%!

Aside from saving money on utility bills, window film is able to fortify the strength of your windows, keep harmful UV rays at bay, reduce glare, and protect your furniture and carpeting from sun-related damage. This means that you can live in a healthier home just by adding some tint! The extra protection that film provides even has the potential to save your life in the case of a storm or an attempted burglary.

 

What are the types of window film I can choose from?

Window film has taken the market by storm and it’s no surprise that there are plenty of options to choose from. Before you settle on a window film, be sure to ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Why do you need window film? What is the primary benefit you are looking to take advantage of? (reduce my energy bill, keep my home cooler, protect against UV rays, etc.)
  2. Is there any certain type of aesthetic look that I’m looking for in my film? (transparent, patterned, reflective, bronze, stained glass, etc.)
  3. On which windows do I wish to install these films?
  4. How much am I willing to spend?

After you’ve considered these four questions, you’ll be at a much better place to be choosing a window film. Now all that’s left is to choose an installer!
