How Advanced Film Solutions Won The Tampa Window Tinting War

After 16 plus years of running my own company in the fascinating world of Tampa window tinting it may still be premature in declaring victory over competition, but hey; we are getting close!

 The challenge for Advanced Film Solutions and is to consistently execute a superior business plan providing clients with the very best value proposition in window film!

Bar none! 
 
  • Advanced Film Solutions created a winning foundation and competitive advantage leveraging our superior solutions versus the perception of 3M window film superiority.

  • Our VISTA and LLumar combination provides our clients an unmatched selection of choices.  Our VISTA dual reflective films are comparatively inexpensive and offer sustained views particularly during the evening hours.

  • Our Huper Optik ceramic films gave Advanced Film Solutions a quantifiable advantage over the 3M Prestige Film series.
  • Huper Optik has superior optical clarity and they manufacture these films without any dyes.

compare

  • 3M recognized that they needed a ceramic film so they re-boxed another companies film.  This private label film has higher reflectivity than our patented Huper Optik.  They are charging the same or higher for less heat rejection and they are limited to a narrow 5 foot width.

  • Advanced Film Solutions placed focus on energy conserving window films for consumers. That’s why we have exhibited at the Tampa Living Green Expo for five straight years.  

  • Advanced Film Solutions expanded operations into Bradenton and Sarasota.  We expanded into the Orlando region.

  • NFRC ratings separate fact from baloney which is particularly critical when we compete against their prestige series.
 
 
 
 
 

Tampa Bay Window Film Vs. Window Replacement Challenge

Window Film Vs. Window Replacement Myths!

Myths:

Window film is a temporary solution for improving the energy efficiency of windows. The film doesn’t stand up to Florida’s heat and brutal sun.

Window tinting peels or bubbles or turns purple.

Replacement windows (their sales guy says!) is the best thing you can do to replace your single pane windows. Low E and IG units are clearly expensive but well worth it in the long run.

replaceFacts:

Today’s window film is manufactured for performance and durability.

Optically transparent coatings that are warranted for a lifetime and filter out 99.9% of harmful UV rays.

While damaged or deteriorating windows simply have to be replaced,  window tinting provides an affordable alternative to replacement when your goal is to improve energy efficiency. In fact, the cost for quick, professional installation is about one-tenth the cost of replacement windows!

should

These films will last for decades and they won’t peel, bubble or change colors.

Window films have been tested and documented by the NFRC so you get exactly what you are paying for.

Coller

The ROI from our window film installation is the fastest of any home improvement aftermarket solution. Typically payback in two years or less.

Get Energy Efficient Windows without Replacement

Reducing your home’s energy consumption with energy efficient windows not only saves you money, it also helps the environment and can lower your carbon footprint. Replacement low-e windows have 128-267 times the carbon footprint of window film.

Plus, installing new windows leads to more landfill waste while energy saving window film installation has little to no waste.

Most window replacement payback period range from 15-20 years!

So before you invest in new windows think Window Film.

Beating the heat; making your home safer and lowering your monthly electric bill- -Advanced Film Solutions is ready to help!

Let’s look at some recent Case Studies!

Brandon: There have been home burglaries in their community and security film was recommended by a consultant.

 

The homeowner interviewed several window film companies and selected Advanced Film Solutions and our LLumar 8 ML Window Film.

They will have daytime privacy, cut 99.9% of the UV and lowered their monthly electric bill by 20%

New Port Richey:

They have a sun room that has Lexan windows and the heat is incredible.

We are installing a layer of film that is uniquely designed for Lexan and then we will install our Ceramic Film as a second application. Typically a polyester film would fail on plastic, but we found the right solution for our client!

Inverness: This is a beautiful home in a Gated Deed Restricted, Golf Community.

They have west facing windows that get hit by the Sun all afternoon.  Their selection?  Huper Optik 30 Ceramic Film.

Clearwater: Heat again is the problem and it’s the west facing windows that get the application of Vista Luminance 8 ML Safety and Security Film this afternoon!

They also wanted to combine energy cost savings and  protection

Oldsmar:

The entire home will have Vista Terre 31 installed on east, west and south facing glass.

They chose the optical clarity of these films as well as the rebate incentive.  Deed restrictions prevented using any reflective film, and Vista had the perfect answer for them!

Tampa:

Our client wanted a solution that would help lower their electric bills throughout the summer months and winter months.

We installed  Low E Film, the first true Low E solution that transforms single pane glass into dual pane efficiency.

Five homes and choices that match our customers requirements and budget!

 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.

Imagine growing up with all that UV, glare and Sun blasting through your child’s log cabin room glass?

Clearly Mrs. Voorhees never called Advanced Film Solutions and heaven knows the end result of that oversight!

Friday The 13th is much more than a date on the calendar.
