It’s best to trust the company you buy the window film from to install it.


Window film is available at most home improvement stores, but there are many important factors to consider when buying and installing window films.


Types of Glass

Surprisingly, not all windows and window glass are the same. There are a few different kinds including, insulated glass units, argon gas-filled units, Low-E coatings, reflective coatings, and spectrally selective coatings.

For window film to be installed correctly and efficiently, you must select a film that works best with your specific window type. You can damage your window if done incorrectly and cause glass breakage or seal failure in multi-pane window units.
