A lot of us like being able to relax in our homes and look out our windows. Our modern lifestyles require us to spend so much time inside, so it’s nice to be able to have access to the outdoors. At the same time, being totally visible to creepy neighbors or pesky door-to-door salesmen can be…well, rather unsettling.

The solution? Dual-reflective window film. Fort Collins homeowners like yourself can install dual-reflective tint to obtain privacy without blocking off outdoor views. Here’s how it works.

What Is Dual Reflective Film and How Does It Work?

Dual reflective window film is a type of polyester laminate that’s adhered to glass areas like patio doors and windows to create privacy. The exterior side of the film is highly reflective, almost to the point where it mirrors its outdoor surroundings, while the inner layer has very low reflectivity.

Why It’s Perfect for Creating Privacy

If you’re someone who cherishes your views of the outdoors, dual-reflective window film is perfect for you. Because only the outer layer of the film is reflective, it creates privacy without blocking your views. Standard privacy films are reflective on both sides, so you end up looking at an image of yourself when you gaze at your windows. But dual-reflective films allow you to see out, while preventing outsiders from seeing in.

Where to Get Window Tint for your Home

You can buy window film for your Fort Collins home online, but be aware, it’s pretty difficult to install on your own. The best way to ensure a long lasting tint application is to have a professional install it. Find a local tinting contractor in your area and check out some of their portfolio pieces or read their reviews. Remember, cheaper isn’t always better. It’s worth it to pay a few extra bucks and not end up with a botched tint job.
