Solar Art did a home window tinting installation in Portola Valley, California! This homeowners had window film installed to several rooms throughout the home years ago and they weren’t happy with it anymore. It has been weathered over time and isn’t performing as well as they would like it to. The homeowners is having a real problem with the windows facing the south as they have direct sunlight coming through those windows at all hours of the day. Unfortunately, they are having the trifecta of problems. Heat, glare and sun fading. They like the idea of window film because they do like the one they had, it just didn’t perform the way they needed it to. The homeowners liked the fact that window film doesn’t cover up their glass and they don’t lose their beautiful views of the trees. They also liked how with window film you still get natural light coming in. With that being said, they were also looking for a window film that isn’t going to drastically change the look of the home or the aesthetics. They aren’t looking to install the window film to all the glass in the house, only the problematic ones. They didn’t want their home to have a different look in each room. The company that did their original installation is out of business, so they searched for window film companies near them, when they found Solar Art’s website. They called us up to see if they could have an estimator meet with them at the house! Just like you’ve seen in many of our past case studies, our sales estimator met with the customer at their home and brought different solar film samples with them for the customer to see. When it comes to home window tinting, a lot of customers are looking for the same things as this homeowner, so our sales representative showed them some of the most popular solar films we install to homes.
He showed them samples that aren’t going to change the look of the home, but will significantly help with the three issues they are having. As you can see from the photos, they have large glass windows and doors and you can actually see the light and glare coming through them. It makes these rooms really hot and uncomfortable. The homeowners are also really concerned about sun fading. They have noticed a discoloration in their hardwood floors and furniture in these problematic rooms that get a lot of sun. They spent a lot of money on their floors and furniture and didn’t want to have to replace them every so often because of sun fading. After seeing all of the different home window tinting samples, the customer decided they liked 3M Prestige 50 the best. This home window tint blocks 56% of heat, 44% of glare and 99% of UVA and UVB rays. As you can imagine, blocking this amount of heat and glare is going to make a significant change in the comfort of these problematic rooms. UVA and UVB rays are the leading cause of sun fading, so this home window tint is going to extend the life of the homeowners furnishings and floors. The home window tint has low reflectivity, which means the aesthetics of the home aren’t going to drastically change and their beautiful views are going to stay in tact. The customer decided this is the best window film for their home and wanted to get it installed. Our installation crew went onsite and removed the the old window film and replaced it with the Prestige 50. The customer was really happy with the results of the installation and the performance of the new home window tint as it checked off all their boxes. In addition to home window tinting and solar film, Solar Art also services decorative window film, custom graphics, anti graffiti film, window security film and exterior building wraps.
