Home Window Tinting
Many people are not aware of house window film, much less the benefits involved with making this upgrade to your house windows. So often people think window tinting is limited to vehicles or businesses, but there are so many useful reasons a homeowner will also fall for the idea of a new house window film upgrade.
First of all, what is house window film?
House window film is a strong sheet of polyester laminate treated to improve the aesthetics and performance of existing windows. One side of the film has a scratch-resistant surface and the other side has an adhesive bond that attaches the film to your glass.
There are a plethora of reasons to upgrade your windows. Many homeowners and even renters can benefit from lower heating and cooling bills simply by installing window film due to their ability to block solar heat and ultraviolet rays from entering the home. This can help regulate temperatures year round, which is a definite positive to homeowners as it greatly helps save energy throughout the year. A wonderful benefit for those who are seeking a more environmental approach to home energy options.
Window tinting can also help prevent furniture and flooring discoloration due to sun stains which is a great benefit many people often overlook. Not only does that lower costs associated with repairing floors or replacing furniture, but it makes your home feel much cozier as well.
One of the more obvious window tinting benefits is that it aids in maintaining privacy. This is a definite bonus for homeowners who live in more populated areas. Sometimes you want to keep your blinds or curtains open without allowing others to peer into your life and window tinting provides a perfect way for you to let more light in while also maintaining privacy. There’s also the option of covering windows with one-way mirror film, great for observation rooms in businesses, but also useful for homeowners in some cases.
For maximum privacy, you can choose to cover your windows with blackout window tint film, which prevents from being able to see both in and out of the windows. This can be a great option for businesses or for homeowners who want to black out light from a movie room or anywhere you feel too much light comes in. It’s a much better option than blackout blinds or curtains as it truly seals out all sunlight, but for those who wish to occasionally have light seep through the window (like a bedroom), this wouldn’t be the best option.
The white matte film is similar to the blackout film in that it adds an opaque layer to windows, but you can still see through the white matte film a bit. There’s definitely some added privacy with white matte film as well, but it’s much brighter and still has a bit of a translucent quality, especially when standing close. White matte film is also a wonderful option for creatives or businesses who want to create unique patterns, logos, words, or cutouts on windows for any reason. Both the white matte and blackout films are used more for decorative purposes while still maintaining the benefits of traditional window tinting. These are not the most common choices for homeowners. There are also many other decorative options outside of white matte and blackout film. Really, the possibilities are endless, but again, not the most popular choices for residential owners.
Yet another benefit to house window film is the ability to hold window shards together if the glass shatters for any reason, which makes for a much easier cleaning process and, of course, a less dangerous situation if anyone happens to be unexpectedly involved. Imagine a baseball hitting your window while you’re sitting near it or something like that. This film would prevent it from shattering and causing injury. House window films have also been known to decrease burglary instances due to the inability to see into the house.
As you can see, there are many benefits to choosing this upgrade on your home windows. Many people assume window tinting is exclusive to vehicles or businesses, but it’s simply not the case. As we have illustrated here there are many positive aspects to adding house window film to your windows even as a residential owner.
The most important thing to consider when selecting house window film is quality. There are many cheap options splattered across the internet and you will quickly realize why quality makes a difference. Often cheaper versions claim to add privacy when really they don’t. Some are much thicker than others to the point of looking unprofessional and much too noticeable and many people end up installing these types only to later take them down due to the aesthetic.
A nice high-quality house window film is crucial to experiencing the final result you’re seeking. Whether you’re looking for privacy, energy cost reduction, temperature regulation, or simply a decorative window for home or business, a high-quality film is absolutely essential to achieving a professional end result. All of these things can be achieved successfully even with self-installation so long as the quality of the film is professional.
