5 Common Questions About Residential Window Tinting

5 Common Questions About Residential Window Tinting

If you’re thinking about having window tint installed in your home, here are some answers to questions you may have!

You’ve probably seen solar tinting in office buildings or vehicles, but what about on homes? With the increasing number of residential window tinting customers, we’d like to address questions we hear often. So if you’re thinking about having window tint installed in your home, here are some answers to questions you may have! 

What are the Benefits of Solar Tinting?

There is a reason that more and more customers are asking for residential window tinting! Just a few benefits of window tinting are: 

  1. Decreased UV exposure: This will protect your furniture, artwork, wooden floors, and carpeting from discoloration or fading from UV rays. 
  2. Decrease the glare from the sun: Glare can be particularly irritating if you spend a lot of time working from home on your computer or if your children are trying to watch TV in the afternoon. Solar tinting can help decrease glare while still enjoying the sunshine in your home. 
  3. Privacy from passersby and trespassers: Tinting means you can still enjoy your beautiful view, but anyone outside can’t see inside.
  4. Extra protection from breaking glass: Our tint is firmly bonded to the glass, so in the event where a window might be broken, like during a storm, an attempted break-in, or a stray baseball from the neighborhood game, the tint can hold the shards together. 

Can Tinting Help With My Energy Costs?

Absolutely! Residential window tinting can help regulate the temperature in your home. Solar tinting can block up to 80% of the heat from the sun, meaning you don’t need to crank the AC in your home in the summer. It also traps heat in your house during the winter, which will save on your heating bills as well! 

Does Tinting Damage Windows?

Not at all! As long as your window tinting is installed correctly, it will protect your windows. We recommend always working with a professional to ensure your window film lasts. 

Will Tint Make My House Look Like an Office Building?

Not at all! We carry a selection of solar control and decorative window films, so you can choose which options fit your home’s aesthetic best. 

Which Windows Can I Have Tinted in my Home?

Virtually any windows or glass in your home are good opportunities for residential window tinting! Solar tinting is great for big picture windows, and decorative film can be great for accent windows, skylights, or front doors.
