A look through time

Solar Art was founded in 1985. The original owner, Chris Sugai, had a goal of taking the window film business to the next level with a superior level of service and professionalism that the industry had never seen. In 2010 the company sold to entrepreneur Matthew Darienzo, whose mission was to build on what Chris had established but expand the company like no other in its industry. His vision was to do this by building the right team with the right culture and acquire independent window tint shops across the country. Each time learning from the knowledge and experience of the owner while bringing most of them along for the ride. With 7 locations all along the US, 83 employees, and plans to continue to go across the country, Solar Art is just getting started. Look for us in a market near you soon!

Oscar G. came over to my residence to tint my sliding doors. He is courteous and his work is impeccable. I'm extremely please with what he has done, and will definitely use him and his company again.

This team was easy to work with and were prompt on the day of install. They worked cleanly with little disruption to our working environment. We also had a last minute request to frost two additional windows in our conference room and they accommodated as best they could with time permitting (they were able to get those two added windows covered while they were here). I would recommend working with ABC Sun Control to anyone that has window covering needs, either tinting or frosting.”

Solar art was professional, personable, and easy to work with. What I enjoyed about my experience, is the accountability they held. I’m very pleased with the mural they installed at my yoga studio. I highest recommend them for any of the services they offer. Yay! :)

Paola Patel

These guys are terrific. I feel like they give me really honest advice, recommend what's best for me (not necessarily for them), do their work with pride (carefully and efficiently), and stretch to make things convenient for me in my very narrow time constraints. We've had them do a lot of windows for us in various treatments depending on the requirements for different windows. I wholeheartedly recommend them to you.”

Sandy Lillie
San Francisco, CA

Had a great experience with the Solar Art team! From the prompt communication to the quick frosting installation on my companies conference room windows. My manager was hesitant to get the installation, and didn't have time to do his research on Solar Art, so he left the ball in my hand. Literally every employee in our office made a compliment on our frosting, and my manager now wants to frost additional conference rooms and offices in our new suite.”

Apriana Phelps
Orange County, CA

We are very happy with the service we received! The individual that gave us the consultation gave us great advice and recommendations. We were planning to tint other windows but he recommended that it wouldn't make much of a difference because of where they were located. We really appreciated the honest of suggestions. The work they did was fast, clean and done in a timely matter.
