Q: How much money will I save?

That all depends. Every home is different. The size of your home, orientation of the sun, lack or presence of foliage, and the type of window film you choose are all important factors. On average, residential window films save about 10-30% on energy costs each year.


Q: How is the cost of installation determined?

The cost of a window film install is calculated based on the square footage of glass, type of window film, and labor required for installation. More complicated installs tend to take longer and, therefore, are more expensive. The experience of your contractor and the warranty provided on their services are also important factors that determine the cost.


Q: My window film looks cloudy. Is that normal?

Yes, this is normal. The window film is in a curing period and is bonding to the glass. Don’t worry too much about it. It should go away in a few weeks. If 30 days have passed and your window film is still cloudy, give us a call and we’ll come take a look.
