 It’s obvious to any educated person that the root cause of problems around that summer at Camp Crystal Lake had everything to do with the heat and glare coming through the cabin windows.

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.

Frequently Asked Window Film Questions Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota

Are window films installed on the inside or outside of the windows?


We typically install on the interior side of the glass. This increases the life expectancy of these films supported by our lifetime warranty.

Consumers are concerned about window film having a perceived tendency to break windows.

 

Advanced Film Solutions represents the finest window film technology manufactured by Eastman Chemicals.

Our expert technicians and sales consultants have decades of experience and we absolutely know our way around a window.bbb

There are films that are specifically built for cars that absorb heat rather than reflect the heat away.  These films can create thermal stress.

 

Unfortunately some car tinting bozo’s will apply this incorrect film on a home or commercial application.

  1. Our films are warranted against glass breakage and we provide a written automatic glass breakage warranty. Optional glass breakage warranties are available that match your existing window warranty for extended periods beyond 5 years.
  2. Our Vista Films are designed for maximum efficiency on IG units. Our Huper Optik non reflective films are also warranted against glass breakage!

Advanced Film Solutions represents Eastman Chemicals LLumar, Vista shatter control films. These meet GSA and DOD specifications.

How does our film compare to 3M Window Film?

The 3M dealer told us that their prestige film blocks 97% of the heat, works better at angles and keeps the home warm in the winter as well as keeping homes cooler in the summer.

Well. .

The key criteria for window film specifications and performance characteristics is the total solar energy rejected or shading coefficient.

These attributes are tested by objective independent laboratories and documented and certified by the NFRC.

Advanced Film Solutions installs NFRC rated films that can be confirmed by this agency for their capabilities.

 

All window films and glass seem to reject heat better when the heat object (SUN!) is at an angle to the glass.

The maximum sun angle is 90 degrees (this is the standard measurement for maximum accuracy) Any representation that an angular measurement improves the heat rejection capabilities of the film is simply ridiculous and disingenuous.
