window_film_heatWindow Tinting Provides Heat Protection – The summer sun’s heat can be brutal. Did you know that windows are the number one cause of heat gain in most of today’s homes?

With an industry-leading selection of window film products, we’re able to provide free consultations and samples for even the most extreme situations.

window_film_glareTinting Your Window Reduces Glare – The second most common reason to tint your windows is to get rid of annoying glare. Our window film was specifically created to reduce glare while enhancing the views from your home windows. Unfortunately, when the sun hits glass it causes refraction and light displacement, decreasing your comfort, making the television unwatchable, and destroying your windows’ views. Your home windows are meant to be looked out of and enjoyed, not covered by blinds and drapes just to be able to get some work done on the computer.


window-film-fadingTinting Windows Reduces Fading – Also known as the silent destroyer, the sun’s UV rays are on a constant mission to fade your interior furnishings. Don’t be fooled, fading is real and probably happening right now! Almost all home window tints promote 99.9% UV protection. However, what you may not know is that light and heat actually impact how window film controls and reduces fading. Whether it’s a leather couch or beautiful original wood flooring you’re looking to protect, your local Genie is glad to explain the fading chart and walk you through which home window film will be the best for your fading prevention needs.


window-film-securityWindow Tinting Can Enhance Security – When the event is a natural disaster, vandalism, or accidental damage, you want to know flying debris and broken glass aren’t going to cause injuries or result in a dangerous mess. Window tinting helps damaged glass hold together, much like a car windshield. Security window films are designed to protect windows from shattering and keep out the bad guys, all while adding an extra level of safety to your glass. Window Genie of W Austin San Marcos and Dripping Springs offers a wide range of security window films from clear to shaded and custom designs.


window-film-decorationTint Windows for Decoration & Privacy – Decorative window film is rising in popularity. Stained, privacy, or etched glass can be very expensive. Decorative window film is a very cost-effective way to add privacy and style to your windows while delivering on the above additional perks. For example, installing frosted film on a ground-floor bathroom window allows for complete privacy without sacrificing the inflow of natural light with blinds or curtains. With hundreds of styles and designs to choose from, Window Genie can source and apply the right window film for your home and office.

Choosing the Right Window Film for Tinting:

When considering a window film for your home and office, you want to look at your needs and price points. Now that we have the reasons for applying window film, let’s look at the technologies which are used to create it. Most window film installers will break down their window film products into three (3) categories. These three categories represent the most common technologies and chemical make-ups of home window films.

Good –Your typical “good” window film is what is called a metalized or “dual-reflective” film. This type of window film is composed of microscopic pieces of metal which reflect and bounce heat and glare off a window in the same manner as a mirror. They are safe to apply on most windows because of their reflective properties. This type of window film is highly efficient and will greatly reduce heat and glare which lowers utility bills and creates a better view from the inside looking out. The one caveat with this film is that it lacks the external aesthetics and style most customers want in their homes. Having windows look like mirrors aren’t at the top of most customers’ minds when they think about heat and glare reduction.

Better – The next and most common home window film applied is called a dyed, pigment, or hybrid window film. This type of window film uses a special blend of dyes and pigments to absorb the sun’s heat and UV rays. The main reason for its popularity is reduced reflectivity and a more natural look from both inside and outside. However, in extremely hot or sunny situations, this type of window film may not be the right choice. This style of window film causes more strain on windows because of the absorbing properties and can cause added stress on your glass. It is also slightly less efficient than a metalized film as the reflective properties from the metalized films do a much better job at rejecting heat and glare as opposed to a dyed film’s absorption of the heat.

Best – Window film technology has come a long way over the past years. Today’s premium window film is made from ceramic and fine metals. Ceramic is one of the most durable and heat-absorbent materials available. It is used as the insulator on spacecraft, power lines, and your toilet! Where dyed and pigment window films fall short, ceramic can be the answer. With properties better than metalized window films and unmatched clarity, ceramic home window films are the answer to any shopper who wants all the benefits of what window film can do without changing your views. Most premium ceramic window films will actually reduce your windows’ natural reflective properties and enhance your view.
