Being exposed to direct sunlight for an extended period of time can be very dangerous. Not only does it increase the chance of skin cancer, but it can also cause accelerated aging through excess skin damage. Another unwanted side effect of direct sunlight is that it can cause dry skin, leading to rashes and general itchiness.

Residential window tint creates a light barrier that effectively blocks up to 99% of ultraviolet light (i.e. the bad kind). Controlling the amount of exposure to direct sunlight that you and your family receive is always a good idea. With tint, you are always protected from the sun’s harmful rays wherever you are inside your house.

Residential window tint – also called solar window film – is applied to the inside surface of the window and has many direct benefits for you and your home. Because it is placed on the interior of the glass, installing residential window tint is generally quick and easy to accomplish. Here are some of the reasons people tint home windows.


The natural heat from sunlight that enters your house is one of the main causes of fading carpets, furniture, and drapes. Sunlight can also cause warping of wood and shortens the lifespan of digital products and electronics.

Solar window film also both reflects and absorbs heat passively, which prevents up to 70% of incoming solar from ever making its way into the house. This means that inevitable damage from natural factors becomes much less of an issue, as it protects your furniture and other material goods from the worst natural element of them all.


Do you find yourself always getting into arguments with your spouse or significant other over energy costs at the end of the month? Is the person paying your utility bills always “on your back” even when you only use luxuries like air conditioning when it’s absolutely necessary? The solution is simple: residential window tint!

Because solar window film reduces the amount of heat that enters your house from outside, it is much cheap and easier to keep yourself and the house cool during the hotter months.

And it works the other way, too. Due to the film’s insulating effect, heat from inside the house stays inside the house in the colder winter months, which similarly saves money by lessening the need for electrical heating.


Everyone needs a certain level of privacy in their homes, but having to draw your blinds or pull your shades down constantly is bothersome and ends up blocking the view of your outdoor areas. Maintain your privacy easily with residential window tint, and ensure that your garden or yard is visible at all times during the day.

There are many different varieties of residential window tint available to suit your privacy needs. For the best in privacy, a more reflective tint should be chosen, which lets you see outside without being seen from the other side. Keep in mind that the reflective quality is reversed at night time, so you will still need to draw your blinds once the sun goes down. This shouldn’t be an issue, however, since there is rarely much to see outside when it is dark!
