Solar Art installed 3M window tint to a home in Gig Harbor, Washington! As you can see from the photo, this homeowner has beautiful views of the water. The entire back side of the home is comprised of large glass windows to utilize the views as much as possible. While the homeowner obviously loved these views, they were hit with the trifecta of problems glass windows can create. The house gets really warm, glare reflects off the TV screens and their furniture and wood floors are being faded from the sun. While the homeowner wanted to fix these problems, they weren’t willing to compromise their views. They didn’t want to install blinds or shades because they want to be able to utilize the views at all times during the day, and they thought blinds and shades would shrink the rooms and make them dark and uninviting. With that being said, they had heard about window film and were curious to learn more about it, so they did some research and came across Solar Art’s website. They learned that some of the benefits of window film are blocking heat, glare and ultraviolet rays so they gave us a call to learn more about it!
After hearing about the problems the homeowner was having, our sales representative brought different solar films for the customer to look through. When it comes to solar film, some reduce more heat and glare and some have more of a tint to it. Our sales representative showed the customer the different window film samples and explained the benefits of each and how they would look in the home. After looking through the different window film samples, the customer decided they liked a 3M window tint the best. The 3M window tint they chose is called Prestige 70. This window film blocks 50% of heat, 23% of glare and 99.9% of harmful UVA and UVB rays. Blocking 50% of heat from entering the home is going to make a significant difference in the temperature. The homeowner will feel the home is cooler and this will ultimately result in a lower electricity bill. Blocking 23% of glare is going to help with the sun reflecting off of TV screens. It's going to make the home more comfortable and enjoyable for everyone. Those UVA and UVB rays are the leading culprit of sun fading. Blocking 99.9% of them is going to extend the life of the homeowner’s furnishings and wood floors. Not to mention, the 3M window tint the homeowner chose contains no metals and has low reflection which means their views aren’t going to be compromised at all! The customer was really happy because they found a window film that would reduce heat, glare, and ultraviolet rays and they didn’t have to lose their views at all! They decided to have the window film installed to glass throughout the entire home. In addition to 3M window tint, Solar Art also services decorative window film, custom graphics, anti graffiti film, window security film and building wraps throughout California and Washington State.
