Residential Safety And Security Window Film
Safety and security film can be used for a couple of purposes in residential settings in Phoenix AZ.
The main reason we use safety and security film on someone’s house is to protect the glass from breaking in areas that could cause lots of damage or injury. For example, if you have very large windows next to a living room area and one of them breaks the glass could fall down into the living room. This is even more dangerous if the glass isn’t tempered. Adding safety and security film to your windows can hold broken glass together. Safety and security film installed in Phoenix, Arizona can reduce the risk of injury, property damage caused by burglars or accidents, or pets scratching your sliding door.
Safety and security film comes in clear, tinted, and reflective (solar) styles. Consequently, the film is rigorously tested to meet or exceed standards (CPSC & US Consumer Product Safety Commission and Underwriters Laboratory).
Residential window tinting costs can vary depending on the film type the customer selects and the number of windows being tinted. Therefore, window film can vary in price depending on the quality and the goal. Solar films typically fall in between $4-$8 sqft. Decorative films have a wider range of designs and can be as low as $6 sqft to over $50 sqft for a custom decorative film.

If you have new glazing units the return on investment is longer than older units.
Residential window tint lasts considerably longer than it used to. The length of time it lasts can vary depending on where it’s located, duration and method of cleaning, and the type of film. However, most manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty on residential solar window film. This lifetime warranty covers defects not negligence.
