Helpful Tips For Choosing Your Home’s Window Tint

Helpful Tips for Choosing Your Home's Window Tint

Residential window tinting comes in various designs, shades, tints, and films, with additional features.

When you think about tinted windows, the odds are good that car windows are the first thing that comes to mind. Car windows are great candidates for window tinting, but they’re not the only ones. Window tinting is also incredibly popular for commercial buildings and homes. If you’re planning to invest in residential window tinting for your home, here are some great tips for choosing the right tint.

Check Window Types

First, you want to determine which windows you wish to be tinted in your home. Residential window film works on most windows, but some are less suited for window tinting. If you have windows that exceed ten years old or they are more than 3/8″ thick of clear glass, the film might not adhere as well. Your manufacturer or installer can help you navigate the needs of your windows so that you get the best product for your needs.

Determine Your Budget

Before making any decisions, you have to establish your budget. There is a wide range of costs, extras, and dealer add-ons that any home-improvement project could come up against; the best security against spending beyond your means for a window tint installation is to establish a budget from the beginning and stick to it.

Establish Your Goals

What is the main reason you are considering residential window tinting? If your main goal is UV blocking, you could opt for window tinting that provides UV protection. If your goal is privacy, you’ll likely want the darkest tint possible, and if you’re going for a tint that’s more aesthetically pleasing than anything else, a decorative film might be the way to go. Your film installer should be able to discuss the pros and cons of the various tints and films available on the market. 

Review Available Options

It’s always advised to consider all options and make informed decisions when shopping for residential window tinting. Calling or visiting an installer or dealer in your area, such as American Solar Tinting, can provide you with professional advice. They can accommodate your needs by informing you of window tinting options that best serve your needs, including designs, shades, tints, films, and additional features.
