What you should know about film from your hardware store.

Bad Film Installation

Above: The work of an untrained film installer.

Big box and hardware stores have started selling window film for the do-it-yourself installer. The difference between the film you can buy, and that bought by the professionals is significant. The window film industry ensures that the film they sell is installed by qualified installers, with training and know-how. Professional film comes with a 5 year to lifetime warranty when installed by a professional installer. They warranty not only the film, but the window that its applied to.

Fact: Not all window film can be installed on your windows. Some films can cause serious damage to your windows. Improperly installed or incompatible film is difficult to remove and can result in seal failure on your thermal window panes or cracking of glass, leading to an expensive window repair.

The quality of film sold at your DIY store is not the same film installed by professionals. Many of these store bought films use old adhesive technology which can yellow over time.

Before you install film from your local store, please give us a call, and ensure that what you are installing is compatible with your glass. No strings (or film) attached.
