Tampa Window Tinting DIY, Vs. Advanced Film Solutions

You’re ambitious, frugal and handy

 AND. .

Tired of that glare, heat and fading.


You’ve heard of tinting for your car and when you walked past the Home Depot display for window tinting; you couldn’t resist buying a roll, or two of Gila Film.

So far- -so good?
 


Advanced Film Solutions has performed more than 19,000 home installations since we launched our company in early 2007.

Quite a few (too many to mention) were fix up installations.

We were called in to rip off these tints and do it right. . .the second time with Vista, Huper Optik or LLumar Film.

We’ve seen our share of installers over the years.

Guys and ladies who actually do this type of work for a living; and there is a wide gap in installation skill sets and ability.

 
  • Bubbles: Too much water, or too little.
  • Gaps: The glass area between the window frame and the film. A novice leaves wide gaps that let sunlight in and look horrible!
  • Straight cuts: We use film handlers to get a factory edge novice DIY tint amateurs do free hand cuts.
  • Lines and creases: When our installers do a project there are no lines or creases. That’s because they have developed the skill over thousands of installations to do outstanding work.
  • The film itself: The film you buy for DIY installations is typically very limited in variety, durability and aesthetics. Of course; you might be a big fan of purple tint??
  • Warranty: We provide a written lifetime warranty and our Vista, LLumar and Huper Optik warranty is one time transferable to the next homeowner. When you do it yourself; there isn’t any warranty.
Had enough?

Ceramic Advanced Window Tinting Prevents UV Damage Tampa, Orlando, Bradenton

There are several misconceptions related to window film. 

Some consumers think that films have to be dark or shiny to protect their furnishings, wood floors and carpets from UV damage.

The facts are quite surprising.

Faded furnishings, wood floors that get lighter and brittle are the result of UV damage! 

Window film like Huper Optik nano ceramic film blocks 99.9% of the UV without altering the ambiance of your home.

Certainly darker reflective films have a place when you are looking for privacy and dramatic heat rejection of nearly 80%.

Eye Strain- Headaches-Discomfort

 
The heat is on for most commercial office buildings and retail stores.
 
rees
 
 
  • Glare makes it difficult to read computer screens. Fatigue and eye strain lead to headaches and employee complaints.

  • Cold spots and hot spots in the building add to the discomfort. Our cooling systems are ill equipped to handle winter months and employees complain about feeling sick while freezing or melting to death.
  • Fading of office furnishings, carpets and paintings. Damage is costly in a bottom line sense as well as in the impression your company offers to important management and visitors.

  • The curb appeal of your offices are compromised. Boxes and files are visible from the street.
  • Electric costs to heat or cool a large commercial office building are prohibitive. This affects your profitability and tenant satisfaction if these costs are deferred to your clients.

  •  Safety and security: certainly commercial and retail offices are prone to smash and grab crime, vandalism.

     
    Advanced Film Solutions  delivers energy savings, comfort and a balanced interior climate. 

When the employees were advised that their days of glare and eye strain were soon to be ended- -they applauded!
