What To Know About Window Tinting For Your New Tampa Home

If you are new to the Tampa Bay area; we wish you a warm welcome. 

Tampa Bay is a terrific place to live!

What you probably won’t enjoy are our endless summers of sultry, humid, hot weather that makes it impossible to open your windows at any time of the day or night.

 
You’ll soon discover that many smart homeowners have window film installed on their glass.



What factors should a Tampa homeowner consider before making any decisions on which window film solution to select?
 
  1. Does your homeowner association restrict the use of reflective films?

Many gated communities have deed restrictions that limit the use of reflective films. This is entirely an aesthetic concern.  Check your homeowner association guidelines under the “window category.”

Advanced Film Solutions has a wide range of non-reflective films that block heat without requiring a metallic look for your glass.  These films are very effective in reducing IR heat and visible light.

Our leading solution is the German manufactured Huper Optik Series.

  • We don’t have a deed restriction?

    If a reflective film is allowed; or you have the freedom of choice for selecting window film you may wish to consider highly effective dual reflective Vista Films.
    Vista Films are reflective when viewing the glass from the exterior perspective.gfrVista designed a lower reflective interior face so your night views are undisturbed.  Vista Films are available in an array of light transmissions that can block nearly 90% of the glare and almost 100% of the UV.How dark, or light you choose is up to you!
  • Wouldn’t it be cheaper to simply replace our windows? 
    glaref
  • Ask your neighbors how much window replacement costs are these days?Advanced Film Solutions takes your existing glass and transforms their ability to factor out heat and glare at a fraction (typically 1/10) the cost of a window replacement.  Our window film has a lifetime warranty that protects your investment.
  • We want an experienced company with a superior record for customer service!

    Advanced Film Solutions has earned the impressive Super Service Award for customer service from Angie’s List for 8 straight years. 

We are Better Business Bureau A Plus Rated and we have completed thousands of projects.bbb

  • You are the expert; is one film a better value than another? Or simply; who makes the best window film?

    Advanced Film Solutions differentiates ourselves from our competition in many important ways.We have more choices and offer more of the world leading brands than any competitor.  There are differences between the popular brand choices.Knowing which film matches our client’s requirements is our focused objective.Budget concerns, aesthetic variations and performance factors all contribute to formulating a customized proposal.
  • Do you give free estimates?Yes
  • Our neighbor said we should get 3M window film. How do you compare?

    We are very attuned to the competitive advantages of our product/solutions portfolio over our 3M competition.Our background (33 years at 3M and formerly National Sales Manager of 3M Window Film.)

    We can state without reservation that there is no 3M solar or solar security window film that can equal the Advanced Film Solutions proposal in terms of aesthetics, clarity, documented heat rejection, choices in light transmissions, rebate acceptable or warranty.

    We encourage this comparison and we are 100% confident that you will recognize the greater value in every critical comparison.
