It’s a brand new year, and like many people, we believe 2021 is a time for change in celebration of the new year! So, for our New Year’s resolution we have decided to set the record straight on some window film myths we hear time and time again. This is because we want possible customers to understand just how effective window film is and exactly what it does and doesn’t do. Read on to learn some of the common misconceptions about window tinting and what actually is or isn’t true about this spectacular technology.
Why Film Misconceptions Vs. Reality
Window Film Myth: Window Film Is Permanent
Window Film Fact: Window film is easy to put on and just as simple to remove. It is also incredibly non-toxic. It is put on with an easy water-soluble adhesive and in most cases can be both applied and removed in one day!
Window Film Myth: Window Film Will Harm Windows
Window Film Fact: Since window film is put on using a non-toxic water-based adhesive– it literally peels right off when you need it to. So when you decide you no longer want window film, or when it is time for a new film, you can easily upgrade your existing window film. Simply call a certified window film professional like us and have us remove it leaving no signs it was ever there.
Window Film Myth: Window Film Will Darken Windows
Window Film Fact: Window film technology has evolved over the years. In fact, the days of dark, gaudy metallic films that darken windows and obscure views are gone. Conversely, the new era is one of perfect clarity. Today’s window films are made of new cutting-edge materials (like ceramic) that absorb the harmful rays of the sun rather than block them. These films let through as much visible light as you choose and leave your windows crystal clear.
Window Film Myth: Window Film Is Very Expensive
Window Film Fact: When it comes to justifying an ROI– dollar for dollar window film is one of the most cost-effective home improvements to invest in. It tends to pay for itself in as little as three years because it saves you up to 30% in utilities monthly. Add to this the preservation of your HVAC systems and greatly increased comfort in your home and the already low cost of window film on your Dallas home is totally worth it.
