Four Factors That Impact How Long Window Tint Last

Four Factors That Impact How Long Window Tint Last

Window tinting is a popular and beneficial feature added to homes. So it’s important to know how various factors can impact its longevity.

Window tinting is a very popular addition to both residential and commercial properties, even cars. This is because of the many benefits of commercial and residential window tinting. Home window tinting can help homeowners in any area, especially areas with warm climates, because it helps regulate the temperature in your home. Window tint can also add additional privacy. But if you’re going to invest in window tinting, you want it to last. Continue reading to learn more about four factors that impact how long window tint will last on your home windows.

Type Of Tint

The different types of window tints on the market have different prices and qualities. While you won’t necessarily get the longest life out of the most expensive film, you likely will have a significantly shorter life with the least expensive ones. Discuss your needs for tinting (blocking glare, blocking heat, simply dimming the sunlight, etc.) with a professional installer.

Quality Of Installation

Part of getting the longest life possible out of your window film is going to come down to the residential window tinting company that you choose. Not all companies out there offer the same level of professional service. When tint is applied to your window, your professional team will assess the windows to determine the best product and then use the appropriate adhesive. While it might feel like self-installing saves you money upfront, you lose that advantage quickly over time, especially if you have to replace the window films prematurely.

Brand Of Tint

While brand name doesn’t always mean high-quality, it does at least play a role in some cases. Choosing a known brand is a good way to help ensure the longevity of your window tints. Choose a brand that advertises the longevity of its tints. 

External Factors

There are also external factors that affect the longevity of the window films. The climate you live in and the degree of maintenance you do are some of the most significant factors. Climates where temperatures are routinely hot, and the sun is very intense may find that their window clings have shorter lives. Likewise, if you aren’t routinely cleaning any dirt off the window clings, they may wear out sooner. Don’t use any cleaners that are harsh or abrasive.
