How to Tell if Your Office Window Film Needs Replacement

As the sun’s UV rays penetrate your office windows, it’s important to know when to replace your window film. Window film helps protect furnishings, flooring and artwork from fading, providing privacy and reducing glare. Here are seven ways to tell if your office window film needs replacement:

1. Age

If you need to figure out when you put window film on your windows, it’s probably been a while since it was installed. It’s generally recommended that you replace window film after five to ten years, so if you can’t recall when you put it up, it’s time to get a new one.

2. Discoloration

The ultraviolet rays from the sun can have a damaging effect on window film, causing it to discolour and fade. If the film has taken on a yellowish tint, it may signify that it is time to replace it.

3. Bubbling or Separation

If you notice any distension or detachment, it’s time to switch out the film. If the window tinting is not fixed securely to the glass, it can start to come away from the surface.

4. Warping or Curling

If the window film has become warped or bent out of shape, it’s time to change it for a new one. The film should be firmly and evenly attached to the window.

5. Loss of Adhesion

The window film may have ended its usefulness if it’s no longer sticking on the window. This is likely because of the age of the film or possibly because of overexposure to sunlight. When this happens, it’s time to get a new film to cover the window.

6. Loss of Clarity

If you see any blurriness or haziness in the view through the window, it’s time to install a new window film. A clear window film should provide a sharp, undistorted view.

7. Unsatisfactory Performance

If the window film you have installed no longer meets your needs, it might be time to switch it out and get a new one.

How to Get the Best Window Film for Your Office

Window films are a great way to increase privacy, reduce glare, and even save energy. But with so many options, how do you know which one is right for you? Think about how much privacy you need, what type of glare you’re dealing with, and how energy-efficient you want your windows to be.

Window films can be tricky to install, so choosing a professional installation service is important. Not only will they ensure the film is installed properly, but they can also advise on the best type of film for your office.
