Window Tinting: Why?

Why should you get window tinting?

We talk alot about the different kinds of window tinting you can get and how to use them in the most effective way. But we’ve never fully gone over why you should consider window tints. Well, there are many reasons. Here are just a few:

Efficiency: Window tinting can make your windows more efficient by helping control how much of the sun’s heat enters your home. Making it easier to control the climate in your home and lowering your heating and cooling bills. Window tints work in the summer by blocking the sun’s heat, but it can also keep heat from escaping in the winter. Your window tinting will always be working for you to keep your home more efficient.

Privacy: Much the way auto tinting can give you privacy while you drive, home window tinting can also provide you with privacy. Darker tinted windows can provide much indoor privacy but you can also get decorative window tinting that will let you enjoy your privacy in style!

Protection: Window films are applied by sandwiching the window between two tough layers of film. This has the added benefit of increasing the strength of the window. It won’t become bulletproof, but it will take more force to shatter a filmed window than a regular one. The film will create a barrier that keep the shattered glass from spraying out, much the way a car windshield protects the driver. A burglar will have a hard time smashing a tinted window in one go, and it’s more likely to scare them off if they can’t get in quickly. If you’re interested in the security benefits, there’s even some tinting, called security film, specifically designed with this in mind.

Window Tinting: Stained Glass window tinting?

Have you heard about stained glass window tinting?

Adding a unique flavor to your home can be challenging. If you have a classic or rustic feeling home it can be even harder. If you’ve always loved the look of stained glass windows but where put off because they can be inefficient and expensive, then we may have a solution. That solution is stained glass window tinting. What is that? It’s a type of decorative window tinting that turns your regular, highly efficiency window into a stained glass beauty.

This tint is stretched over the window much like a standard window film, but the design on it mimics that of more expensive stained glass. You don’t have to remove the window, or go shopping for the right panes, just have the film made and get it installed by professionals (or yourself if you’ve got the DIY know-how).

A stained glass window can add a beautiful look to any home, but to make the best use of it it should be placed somewhere where it can be best viewed and appreciated. Most stained glass windows are places in or around a front door or in a bathroom for a colorful privacy window. Indoor porches, sunrooms, or any areas with a skylight are also great ideas for a stained glass window tinting. Anywhere where the patterns can be viewed and admired easily.

Stained glass windows can get expensive quick. Pre-made stained glass can run up to $150 per panel and can go as high as $10,000 dollars for a larger panel. If you want it custom made, it gets even more expensive. An artist may charge up to $1,000 for a single pane of custom stained glass. Ouch!
