Benefits of Window Tint
Is it worth it?
When retrofitting your home with impact windows and doors it is important to know that impact glass cannot be tinted using aftermarket tint. Placing tinted film on impact glass can retain heat, causing it to crack, as well as voiding the warranty. Impacted glass consists of two layers of annealed or tempered glass bonded to an intermediate layer of a shatter-proof membrane. If a homeowner has chosen to tint his or her impact windows a tinted layer is added to the center during the manufacturing process.
Increased Energy Efficiency:
Tinting your windows reduces the heat and UV transfer, which translates into lower energy bills. This also helps keep rooms climate controlled and comfortable.
Protection from Fading:
While window treatments, i.e. curtains, blinds, etc., are the best protection from UV rays, tint helps filter UV rays, protecting furniture, flooring, and carpets from fading.
As the sunlight shines in your home is can cause glare on electronics and a variety of surface. Much like how sunglasses work when outdoors, tinted impact glass helps cut glare inside your home.
Tinted impact glass comes in a variety of colors and levels of reflectivity. Homeowners can appreciate an unobstructed view of the outdoors while enjoying added privacy.
