There are several options to choose from when deciding which type of window film you want for your home. The type of film you choose depends on what type of look you want for your home as well as the purpose you want it to serve. Here are four types of residential window films to help make your decision easier.
Solar Control Film
If you are looking for extra protection from the sun’s harsh rays, a solar control window film is the option for your. These residential window films are designed to block out UV rays, protecting not only you, but your furniture and decor as well. Solar control film makes your home more energy efficient, saving you some money on those expensive energy bills.
Security window film typically comes tinted to give your home some privacy and discourage people from trying to break in. In addition to this, these window films actually make your window shatter resistant. While it won’t keep it from breaking altogether upon impact, it holds the pieces together, making it hard for anyone to break in. It also makes your windows safer if they do accidentally break because the glass pieces won’t fly outward.
These residential window films are for decorative purposes and add a unique look to your home. There are several styles of decorative film to choose from, so it really just depends on your personal style. Decorative film also adds an extra layer of protection to your windows, making them harder to see through. Frosted films in particular make it hard to see through the window, but still allows natural light in.
This is a good idea if you have young kids in your home. Anti-graffiti window film makes the window resistant to any paint or pen graffiti. If anyone tries to write on your windows, it will be on the film rather than the window itself, making it really easy to scrub off.
