How dark should your Home Window Tinting be?

How dark should your window tinting be?

Window tinting has many benefits. Some of these benefits we’ve already covered. If you’ve decided to get some tinting done for your home there’s one decision you need to keep in mind, how dark should your windows be. Window Tinting comes in various shades from very light to almost completely black. What you want will often determine how dark the tinting will be. So, how do you know the shade your getting will suit what you want? Formula One has a handy little guide to help you out.

If you want more privacy: If your tinting your windows to try and add some privacy to an office or meeting room, then a darker, more reflective tint is what you want to look for. The reflective tint will cut down the glare for those inside while making it harder for people from the outside. You won’t want to do this if atmosphere is a concern as the darker tint will cut down the natural light drastically. This reduction will leave the room feeling gloomy.

For more natural views: If privacy is not a main concern but you still want to gain the benefits of window tinting, you can invest in invisible window tinting that will lower the heat of the room without cutting down on the level of sunlight in the room.

For Security: If your looking to add a little security to your home, then security film might be the way to go. Security film provides a screen that will keep the glass from shattering when hit with a blunt force. This means burglars will have a much harder time getting in. They are also available in darker tints to help maintain privacy.

2 Reasons To Hire A Professional For Residential Window Tinting

Residential Window Tinting: A Do-It-Yourself Project Or A Do-Not?

There seems to be a lot of hype online these days with the “do-it-yourself” crowd. Everyone thinks “oh, I can do that” about many things, but the fact is not everyone can do everything. Does a fish climb a tree? No. Don’t be silly. In all seriousness we encourage people to judge their true ability before attempting a seemingly simple project like residential window tinting. While it may seem like an easy enough thing to do on your own, it’s a little more involved than you may realize.

Today, we’d like to provide you with a few reasons why you should hire a professional for your residential window tinting.

#1: Professionals Have The Inside Scoop On Various Options.

Many of the window films available in home improvement stores are thinner and less durable than brands offered by a professional company. There are many types of residential window tinting materials and styles that could be used. Having a professional on your side means having someone to bounce your ideas off of and get feedback about what might function best for what you desire.

#2: Professionals Can Get The Job Done Right.

You may start your project with intention to go slowly and get everything perfect only to realize that there are air bubbles in the tinting. Who wants that look? Yikes! Although applying residential window tinting may seem easy there’s a lot that could go wrong in DIY the process. Professionals will be able to complete the job right the first time. They’ll cover all the bases from precisely cutting each piece of window film to size, cleaning the windows prior to adhesion, and applying the tinting without bubbling.

When you choose to hire a professional for residential window tinting you’re guaranteeing quality results without the hassle of trying to figure it out by yourself.

4 Reasons To Consider Window Tinting For Your Home

There are many significant reasons to choose residential window tinting in addition to or instead of drapes or mini-blinds. In part one of this series we talked about 4 of those reasons. Aside from the fact that FormulaOne has been providing high quality service since 1973, we have a few more compelling reasons you should consider residential window tinting for your next window treatment project.

1.) Window tinting has a lifetime warranty.
This one may be limited to our company only, of course! What we mean by this window tinting warranty is that a limited warranty coverage may be transferred from the original purchaser(s) to subsequent owner(s) of the home in which the manufacturer’s products were installed.

2.) Window tinting adds home value.
As mentioned in the previous reason, the lifetime warranty is transferable. We’d like to think this adds an extra value to the home in the fact that the new owner will have the warranty and the all the benefits that window tinting has to offer, too!

3.) Window tinting is safe.
Should you decide to go with only window tinting in place of blinds or drapes you won’t have to worry about dangling cords or strings that your children can get tangled up in. This makes window tinting a safer alternative than blinds or drapes for families with small children and babies.

4.) Window tinting can be aesthetically pleasing.
You may imagine that all window tinting is dark, but that’s not the case. Our window tinting can actually do everything we’ve mentioned (throughout part 1 and 2 of this blog series) without giving off that dark or mirrored look, because if you’d like you can choose to have a frosted glass look.

4 Reasons To Consider Window Tinting For Your Home

Window tinting can offer a custom function to any home depending on the type of tint you choose. This is especially true of a Vista® window film that is manufactured by the largest manufacturer of window film in the world. In case you’ve been thinking about it, but you just aren’t sold on the idea, we’re going to list 4 reasons you should consider residential window tinting.

1.) Window tinting is durable.
With the Vista® window film you get he only product available with a dry distortion-free adhesive system. This system is not just taped to the surface of the glass, but bonds with the glass. This means you will not get the distortion, haziness or bubbling that other products have. With this system, you also get a much cleaner installation and it’ll last longer than some of the other materials.

2.) Window tinting offers privacy.
Window tinting works to keep those prying eyes out, but allows you to still see outside. This allows you to maintain your privacy as well as being able to peer outside without straining your eyes.

3.) Window tinting is an energy saver.
Window tinting is a wonderful choice for an extra source of insulation. Your energy bills will be lower during the times when you’re keeping the warm sunlight out during the summer. In the winter, the window film also provides an added layer of insulation to keep the cold out.

4.) Window tinting reduces glares.
Saving energy is one thing, saving your furniture, carpet, and flooring is another. Window tinting makes it possible to reduce the glaring rays of sun that cause fading on your furniture, carpet, or flooring.
