Huper Optik Ceramic Window Tinting For Tampa, Orlando, Sarasota Prestige Homes

16779293482_c8f04b1f5a_o

The battle for consumer and commercial customers was waged between the ceramic technology of Huper Optik versus the multi-layered optical film from 3M (Prestige) sold at Home Depot kiosks as well as an assortment of window genie window washer agents and reps.

HO 
Huper Optik had the head start in high performance non metallic window films while 3M introduced their film in 2005.

The non reflective window films differ from the classic versions of sputtered metal films in several respects.

These films are not shiny or reflective which suits deed restricted communities and is the preferred aesthetic requirement of many homeowners and businesses.

Huper Optik meets all deed restrictions as well as all HOA rules since your home’s windows are not mirror-like.

Metal films offer privacy and are very effective in their ability to factor out heat, but they can alter the “look” of your glass.

Heat is not reflected, rather the heat reducing can be found in the ability of these films to reject infrared (invisible) heat.

Which film has won this battle?

NFRC Certified Huper Optik!
Huper Optik 30
Huper Optik optical clarity as compared to prestige is a sure winner. Side by side comparisons easily demonstrate that this comparison in clarity is not even close.
3M film is noticeably hazy.

Make certain you are comparing installed prestige films since the 3M film cards do not have their hazy adhesive included on the sample.

Huper Optik film does not alter the hue of the light streaming through the glass.

Prestige has a clearly visible blue-ish shift.

Huper Optik hard coat has superior durability when compared to prestige. 3M adds a dyed coating that is easily scratched off. The color of the film is consistent and can not be easily scratched off.

Huper Optik Ceramic films are multi-layered and patented.

There are a host of single ply films made in Arizona being resold under a number of competitive brand names. 

This includes 3M’s re-boxed single layer ceramic film. The obvious limitations of these single layer films are narrow width and exterior reflectivity.

Price considerations certainly are significant since the knock off 3M film seems to be priced at the same levels as the patented Huper Optik!

We’ll show you why our Huper Optik won the battle in Florida and throughout the USA!

Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota, Selecting Window Tinting Installation

Today’s consumer faces enormous challenges given the conflicting alternatives available in Florida’s window film marketplace.


Here’s some insider advice for you to consider for selecting the dealer and the brand that meets your requirements.

DIY:

   Unless you are extremely handy or have window film installation experience; doing the installation yourself is problematic at best.

The films sold in big box houses like Home Depot and Lowes tend to be lesser quality than the professional grade films used by window film installation professionals.

 

After all your home is your largest investment.


Your windows are essential to maintain ambiance and home value. 

No one wants dyed purple films or bubbles that will block your view or devalue that investment.

Professional window film dealers should be insured and members of their local Better Business Bureau.

Having an A Plus Rating for 11 straight years is a plus!

Certainly a window film business should have a business license and be able to furnish the proper credentials to enter your home.

These stipulations are important when choosing your installation professional if only to differentiate the moonlighter from the pro. 

What is important is your lifetime warranty from the dealer as well as the written guarantee from the film manufacturer.

Brands:

We represent the leading window film brands in the industry.
These suppliers represent more that 90% of the residential and commercial window film sold in the USA. 

Most of these manufacturers have had their films independently tested by labs as part of the NFRC.
Warranty:

Most window film manufacturers offer a lifetime residential warranty. Several offer extended transferable warranty typically for their premium film lines.

Commercial warranties vary depending upon the film selected but generally this warranty is for 10-15 years.

The SMALL BUSINESS ADVANTAGE:

Speaking on behalf of window film dealers across the USA we are typically family owned businesses with deep roots in your local community.

We have a passion for excellence and we take pride in our business and body of work.

Personally I strongly believe in identifying the brand of film and the manufacturer.

The brand lets you know what you are investing in and the specific performance characteristics of that film. Comparing apples to apples like the NFRC ratings takes the mystery out of the buying process.

There are vast differences between these films.

Some are tremendous energy savers using highly reflective films using stable alloys.  Several films are far less reflective from an interior perspective so your night views are protected.

There are certainly consumers who prefer non-reflective films and this is when we would propose nano-ceramic films like VISTA and Huper Optik.

“Caveat Emptor- Buyer Beware!”


We founded our company on meeting and exceeding expectations and in earning word of mouth referrals.
