Window Tinting FAQs
You have questions. We have answers.
Q: How do you install window films?
A: We have courteous and professional staff that will custom cut films at your home to ensure a perfect fit. The film, a nontoxic slip solution, will be applied to the interior of your windows. Our only request of homeowners is to remove all furniture from the window area and clean dust and pet hair previous to treatment.
Q: Could window films cause my windows to break?
A: Window films do affect the thermal stress of a pane of glass; however, there are strict application guidelines within our industry that can eliminate risk of breakage when properly installed. So, while windows do break due to stress, including thermal, a professionally applied film should not cause your windows to break.
Q: What is a BTU Meter?
A: A BTU Meter is an inexpensive way to measure how hot your room really is at that moment. AAA can test your windows to see just how hot it really is! Click here to see our very own Dean Randall testing a Huper Optik ceramic 40 with a BTU Meter.
