Window film is popular for residential and business properties for a number of reasons. Many people buy their window film because the decorative styles look great, but there is so much more to love about window film than the aesthetic enhancement it offers! Read on to learn 5 benefits of residential or commercial window film.
Customize to your lifestyle needs.
Window film comes in a wide range of styles and uses. You can opt for a darker, shaded window film, or a clearer style. Each has its own pros and cons. For example, the darker film can provide the homeowner with more privacy and glare reduction, while a clearer film will complement the natural outdoor view rather than altering it.
Darker films can also have a higher degree of reflectivity, which can be good or bad depending on your personal preferences. Reflectivity keeps the sun at bay, but can distort your view at night by showing a shadowed picture of your home’s interior in the pane.
Keep your family safe from harmful sun rays.

Protect your home from unwanted intruders.
Security film is made using technology based off of that used to protect government buildings from shattered glass in the event of bomb blasts. Scaled down slightly for business and residential use, our protective window film will stop burglars in their tracks, turning vulnerable window portals into sticky webs of glass shards that won’t be bypassed by anyone. The window film not only strengthens your glass, but holds damaged glass together in a similar style to that seen with car windows. Imagine the effort it would take to break through a car window, and you can quickly see why so many thieves are deterred after their first hit, not wanting to draw attention with a loud and dedicated smashing effort.
Additionally, window film will discourage intruders by hiding the interior of your home from sight. This will make criminals less likely to risk arrest, since they are not guaranteed a worthwhile prize. Odds are they will move on to some place more vulnerable, with expensive items in full view.
Window film can actually start to pay you back over time. Cooling costs are reduced by about 30%, which translates directly into savings on your energy bills each month. Within a couple years, you will have likely paid back the cost of your window film installation and even started to profit from the investment!
