Most Frequent Questions and Answers
  • Can I get privacy at night with a window film?

    Unfortunately, window films can’t provide privacy at night because the light from inside your home is visible. But you can get a blackout or frosted film that will provide privacy as well as energy savings. Talk to us about the best options for your home.

  • Do residential tints go on the inside or the outside?

    Most residential window films are usually installed on the inside of your window, although they can be applied to the outside as well. It depends on the film, the type of window you have, and how you want it to look.

  • How do you install window film?

    Installing window film is a multi-step process, which includes: measuring the windows, cutting and trimming the film to size, applying an adhesive solution on the glass surface, then pressing the cut film onto it. For more details about our residential window tinting service, please contact us today!

  • How long does residential window film take to dry?

    Typically, window film takes about 24 hours to fully cure and dry. However, it can take up to two weeks for the tinting to reach its full-color intensity. Of course, this depends on a couple of factors, like the temperature and humidity of the room and the climate where the window film is being applied.
  • Is window film scratch-proof?

    The window films we use are resistant to scratches, so you can rest assured that your windows will stay looking great for a long time. There are no completely scratchproof films though, so it’s important to take care when cleaning or applying window film.

  • Can residential window films be applied to textured or patterned glass?

    Yes, window films can be applied to textured or patterned glass. However, the film won’t adhere as well and may have a slightly different look than when applied to smooth glass. It depends on the type of textured or patterned glass you have and the film being used. Ask our experts for more information.
