Tinting windows to keep out harsh light, cool the interior of a home, or protect furniture and flooring are all popular uses of window film, but many people have not considered how window film can increase their home’s security or lend the decorative appearance of etched glass to their windows. If one or more of window film’s benefits appeals to you, it’s time to contact a DC-area Best Pick™ window tinting company.
The most popular use of window film is to block glaring sunlight, and shaded solar control film (that’s what the industry calls it) can keep out up to 95 percent of the sun’s rays, saving you money on cooling costs and saving your furniture and flooring from fading.
Another popular use of window film is more for its decorative possibilities; certain types of films can offer homeowners the appearance of etched glass but without the high cost of the real thing. As an added bonus, one not available with real etched glass, the film can be removed if the homeowner’s tastes change.
And while window tint alone provides security by blocking a possible intruder’s view inside your home, specially made security film actually helps strengthen windows and keeps them from shattering into tiny pieces if broken. In the event of high winds and some forms of direct impact, security film can greatly increase a window’s resilience.
For any of these reasons and more, having window film installed can enhance both the appearance and safety of your home. And by working with a Best Pick DC™ window film company, you can be confident in the quality of the products, installation, and customer service you’ll receive.
