Home Window Tinting In Marina Del Rey

Windows are an integral part of any home. They let in light from the outside. They let you view the surrounding outdoor areas. They also help keep out the summer heat and repeal the winter cold.

By the very nature of their transparency, however, glass windows can also create problems for the homeowner. One of these annoyances is the excessive glare caused by unfiltered sunlight that occurs within the home.

If you’ve ever tried to watch a television movie in a room bathed in sunlight during the day, you know how the outside glare can make the viewing experience a poor one. For televised night scenes, glare can totally blank out the action.

There is a solution to the home glare problem that is fairly simple to apply at a reasonable cost: window glare film.

Glare-reducing film not only prevents television and computer screens from being washed out, but they also block out up to 99 percent of harmful UV rays. This self-adhesive film is applied directly to the window glass. For single-pane window, it is applied to the inside. For double pane glass, the film is applied to the outside.

Applying Window Tint to Your Home

1 – Clean your glass panes with a solution of a teaspoon of baby shampoo added to one gallon of water. Cleaners that contain vinegar or ammonia should never be used as they can damage the film.

2 – Measure each pane, than cut the film to match. Leave an extra inch along each side as you make the cuts..

3 – Using the same liquid you used to clean the windows, spray the windows with a liberal coating. Spray some of the liquid on your hands in order to avoid leaving your fingerprints on the film.

4 – Remove the film backing. One trick to make this easy is to use transparent tape to peel back the first inch or so. Once you had exposed the small strip of film, spray the entire film backing and remove using your hands

5 – Beginning at the top, stick the film to the glass and work your way down to the bottom. Once the film has been applied and the backing peeled off, adjust the film so that it is perfectly centered.

6 – Using a window squeegee, smooth out any bubbles to the sides. It’s important to keep the film surface wet so the squeegee will pull easily.

7 – Use a utility knife and trim the film edges within 1/16-inches window edge.

8 – When finished, spray the film surface one more time to squeegee out any remaining bubbles through the tiny gap you left along the edges.

9 – Wait at least 30 days before cleaning your home windows from the inside. Allow four to eight weeks for the window film before the curing process is complete.

Once your windows have been glare-proofed with home window film, you should see an immense improvement in the interior lighting in your home. Not only are do light reflections no longer interfere with your television viewing, but you should notice a more subtle and calming environment throughout the interior rooms.
