With the middle of Summer upon us, most of us have a Summer home improvement list we would like to get completed. With that in mind, we are going to give you three reasons why implementing a high quality home window film should be on that list.


Increased Home Comfort – Window films work to block excessive heat and glare from entering your home through the glass. Most homes have some windows that get a lot of sun throughout the day. In these areas of the home, there can be hot spots from the heat entering which is often accompanied by irritating glare. Often, in an effort to keep these areas of the home comfortable, your need to adjust your air conditioning. The problem then becomes that the home is often too cool in other areas where the sun is not shining in. By using window films on these specific windows, you can reduce the heat and glare specifically where the problem lies without covering the window with a blind or drapery.


Reduce Energy Costs – Continuing with the point above, if you have windows that are allowing excessive heat to enter the home, your air conditioning is likely having to work overtime to keep your home comfortable. All that extra running is costing you money. When you reduce the heat entering the home, your air conditioning will not need to work as hard to keep the home comfortable and you will save money on utility bills as a result.


Preserve Floors, Furniture and Furnishings – Our guess if that other things on your home improvement list may be things like new flooring, some furniture, artwork, etc. If that is true, you want to be sure to protect those things from premature fading and sun damage. The primary sources of sun damage and fading are UV, Heat and Visible Light. Window film works to reduce all three of these primary areas of sun damage. In fact, most films reduce over 99% of the sun’s UV rays which accounts for 40% of the total causes of sun damage.


Hopefully these three points have you convinced to place window film on your home improvement list. click HERE and call 317-541-8468 for our Indianapolis store and 317-762-8468 for our Greenwood location. We would be happy to provide a free, no obligation consultation and estimate of implementing window film solution in your home.

No one wants to have a bad automotive window tint job. While most people do not understand all that goes into a good tint job, we all know what a bad one looks like. Recently Brian Cooley from CNET Road Show decided to look into what it takes to avoid an automotive window tinting nightmare. In the article, Brian discusses things to look for to make sure your vehicle gets an great tint job. We wanted to share the top six things mentioned in his article.


When deciding on an automotive window tinting location;


Look For Clean – Automotive Window Tinting starts and ends with cleanliness. Any dust floating around the place will end up permanently stuck to your glass.


Get a Guarantee – A lifetime warranty for the original purchaser on the film and the installation should not be out of the question.


Look at References – Have the shop show you a car they have done. Inspect it for edge to edge coverage, no bubbles or dirt trapped in the film and edges that aren’t lifting.


Don’t Sweat the Wet – Know that the inside of your car is going to a bit wet in the process. It’s OK, it’s less water than it looks like and a good tint shop knows where – and where not – to let water drip.


Let it Cure – It will be anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks, depending on temperature and other factors before you can put the windows down. New tint needs to breathe out all the moisture it was applied with.


Clean it Carefully – Tint is applied on the inside of glass. Once tinted, clean the tinted surfaces with a non-ammonia glass cleaner so you don’t break down the film’s scratch resistant coating.

Residential window tinting can be a very cost-effective way to reduce energy, minimize glare, protect your furnishings and increase the security of your home. The best part is that this film can typically be done as a retrofit to your existing windows with very little disruption to your home. Take a moment to read this excerpt from an article that appeared in How Stuff Works that discussed the top benefits of having your home windows tinted.


Excerpt from an article written by Jessica Brown


“Curtains, furniture and even flooring can fall victim to the effects of the sun. One of the leading culprits in fading your valuables is ultraviolet light. To keep those home furnishings and decorations looking their best, a window film with a high percentage of ultraviolet light rejection would be a good choice. Many films can now block almost 99 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays.


Ultraviolet light can not only fade your furniture, but too much of it can affect your health. Ultraviolet rays are the reason for sunburns and are also seen as one of the risk factors for cancer. According ­to the Report on Carcinogens released by the Department of Health and Human Services, ultraviolet radiation is a known human carcinogen [source: National Institutes of Health]. For working to prevent sun-induced skin damage, several types of window film have even been given the Skin Cancer Foundation‘s Seal of Recommendation [source: The Skin Cancer Foundation].


Some window films offer another benefit in the area of safety: shatter resistance. The film’s shatter resistance comes from its ability to hold glass shards together and act as a barrier between the interior of the home and the glass. Along with the safety benefits, window tinting can also help to reduce the glare on your television when viewing the big game. The percentage of glare reduction is usually related to the visible light transmittance. The lower the amount of light transmitted through the film, the greater the glare reduction inside the home.


While a darker film can offer more glare reduction and privacy, a clearer film offers a more natural view from the window. Darker films can also have higher values for reflectivity. Reflectivity can be beneficial when reflecting the sunlight, but it can be less desirable when the view out of your windows at night includes a shadowed version of the room’s interior.”
