Window tinting has so many benefits for homes and businesses alike. They cut down on the harmful effects of UV rays, boost your energy savings, and even bolster security by preventing burglary. But too many business owners are put off from making this investment due to not knowing how long commercial window tinting will last. Today, we’ll teach you what you need to know.
Tinting Lasts Longer than It Used To
Let’s get this out of the way: there’s no simple answer for how long your commercial window tinting will last. Its lifespan will depend upon a couple factors. One of the most significant is the quality of the film.
If you’re accustomed to the solar films of yesteryear, you may have been disappointed by their lifespan in the past. Don’t let this discourage you from investing in a more modern product. The science of window tinting has progressed quite a bit in just the past decade. Among numerous improvements, such as the capacity to block more light, it has also become much longer-lasting.
There are other factors that will impact the lifespan of your commercial window tints, too. Here are a few you should be aware of:
>Quality of the film
>Professional vs. DIY installation
>Hours and intensity of sunlight
We know—you probably came here for a simpler answer than what we’ve given you so far. Although there are no absolutes, we’ll provide you with one anyway: well cared for, you can expect your films to last 10 years or more.
Getting the Most Out of Your Commercial Window Tinting
Window tinting is an investment. To get the most out of it—and to ensure a long lifespan—you’ll have to protect it. Fortunately, this will require very little on your part.
Maintenance of window tinting is as simple as can be. Simply wipe them down every week or so from the outside using a microfiber cloth. Just water will get much of the job done, but for a deep clean, opt for a mild detergent. Ammonia-based detergents will do more harm than good, so be sure to pick one consisting of natural components.
Keep in mind that window films that receive fewer hours of direct sunlight per day will generally last longer than those that receive more.
If you keep these maintenance tips in mind, you’ll be able to enjoy your commercial window tinting for years to come.
