Window Films

Window films is an excellent multi-functional product that can be conveniently applied onto any glass surface.

Window film is becoming a popular product among owners of residential and commercial buildings in the U.S. One of the reasons for its increasing popularity is because of the availability of many designs and patterns. The current manufacturing technology had also improved a lot. Different types of window film serves different function and home owners can easily source for those that suit them.

Window films are made of vinyl material that is few millimetres thick. They can be stick to glass window. There are in general, two types of vinyl window films – the adhesive-based type and the adhesive-free type. In the past, adhesive-based type window films are the most popular type of window film because they are the only type that is available.

The adhesive-based window film will require adhesive to attach itself to the glass window. The adhesive sometimes come with the window film itself and is covered by a backing paper. When the backing paper is removed, it can then stick to the glass. Those that do not come with adhesive would require that you apply a layer of adhesive on it. As the window film will attach to glass immediately when it touches the glass, applying an adhesive-based window film may be quite a task.

As with all other home appliances and accessories, window films have limited life-span and when it has reached the end of its life-span, it may turn yellow in color. Removing the adhesive-based window film is another difficult task. Each day, many home owners are looking for ways on how they could remove their window film that is permanently stuck to the glass window.

With the advent of the window adhesive film, things have become much easier. The adhesive-free window films are easy to install and easy to remove. Just like the adhesive-based type, these type of window films also come with a backing paper but it does not stick to the glass immediately when in contact with glass.

 

To install the adhesive-free window films, you will need the following tools: a spray bottle filled with soapy solution, a squeegee and a utility knife. That’s about all the tools that you need. First you have to thoroughly clean the glass window with any normal window cleansing solution. You may need a scrapper to remove any paint remnants on the glass surface.

Once the glass surface is clean, spray the glass surface with the soapy solution. The soapy solution may be prepared with any glass cleansing shampoo or detergent. Then, carefully remove the backing paper off the window film. Be careful not to allow the window film to touch anything as it may pick up dust. Place the vinyl film on the glass surface and allow it to “float”. Carefully adjust the window film to its position. You do not need to be too particular about getting it to the actual final position at this moment.

Use the squeegee to squeeze out all the soapy solution behind the vinyl film. Make sure that no air bubbles are trapped behind the vinyl film. As you squeeze out all the air bubbles and soapy solution from the film, the vinyl film will stick itself on the window. Now, you can use a utility knife to trim off any excess window film and trim to shape. Be careful that you do not damage any of the window rubber seal.

When it comes to designs and patterns, there are many choices available to consumers. Choose your window films according to your need. Do not just be tempted by the designs. For example, many home owners are looking for window film that could make their window opaque. In this case, opaque window film works best. There are many types of window films that can make your window opaque.

The most popular opaque window film that is chosen by home owners to opaque window is the frosted window film. The faux frosted window film works excellent as a privacy window film. If what you need is just semi-opaque, then you can try the Lite Frost. Adding privacy to a window does not mean that you just limit yourself to the opaque window film. There are many other choices that you can consider, such as using other etched glass film designs and stained glass films.

As window films can withstand heat and moisture, it is suitable to be installed on bathroom windows and shower doors. Experiment with various combination such as using stained glass window film on the bathroom windows and using etched glass film on the shower door.

Many home owners uses window glass films not just for the purpose of adding privacy or reducing heat that comes into the room, they use them for decorative purposes too. Stained glass films are popular choices among home owners. There are many stained glass designs that is available in the market.

In the past, whenever the word stained glass is mentioned, everyone will immediately relate them to window designs in churches. This is no longer so today. Stained glass window films are not just limited to designs with religious faith as its center theme. Repeating patterns such as the Rhapsody stained glass window films are popular thanks to the works by Frank Lloyd Wright. He inspired the Rhapsody designs.

Since the Victorian era, many homes began to adopt stained glass window films for their windows. To use stained glass window films for your home, you first need to decide on the best location to install them. Certainly, you do not want to install them on every single window in your house, unless you want it to look like a church.

A good window to install stained glass window film is those that get plenty of attention, such as those at the living room or dining room. For large pane window, you may want to choose those window films with Center-piece theme such as the Lost Lake image. If you have a glass door that leads out to a garden, you would want to choose those designs that is close to nature, such as the Biscayne stained glass window films, perhaps.

If you are installing colored window tint on your kitchen window, be sure to leave some part of the window as clear glass. Kitchen window film looks great but having some clear glass will allow you to look out of the window when you need to. Stained glass films also look nice on storm doors and side lookouts. During the daytime, light that comes into the room is controlled and create a beautiful piece of pictorial art within your house. At night, the light from within your house will illuminate the window film and will create a beautiful piece of art when your neighbour drive past. That is why stained glass is called illuminated wall painting.

In the past, window films are not that popular partly because all window films are tinting film that makes the room dark. After all, everyone thought that this is the best way to reduce heat and glare that comes into the room. The disadvantage about this is that most houses have to turn on their lights even during the day.

Window films can be in clear form or with pattern and it has work wonderfully to prevent heat from entering the house while being translucent. Most translucent window films are also UV-rated up to 90%. UV ray is the spectrum of the sun that causes your upholstery, carpets and furnitures to fade in color. That is why, when you use UV window films on glass windows, your furniture and upholstery can last longer too.

Window films also cut down the amount of heat that can come into your house. During summer and daytime, you do not need to turn up your air-conditioning all the time and in winter, the films also help to retain heat within the house and hence you do not need to turn up the heater. Either season, you will have plenty of energy saving options.

You can easily buy window films from hardware shop, DIY stores or even online. Check the reputation of the window films merchant before buying from them. Not all home window tinting film are created equal and you should also check if the company has been around for some years and do they have many customer’s testimonial to attest the quality of their products.

Different merchant will provide different duration of warrantee for the window films. Most of them will be able to provide you with 3 to 5 years of warrantee. The longer the warrantee, the higher the cost. It is also important to note that most window films can easily last twice as long as its warrantee period. This means that, if you think that you will redecorate your house every 5 or 7 years, you may want to go for those that provide you with only 3 years of warrantee and save a bit on its cost.

If you are using adhesive-free window films, then removing them is very easy when it comes to redecorating. You just need to peel it off. Some window films can even be reused on other windows as long as its shelf life has not been exceeded. You may even store the window film in your storage area until such time when you want to reuse it again.
