Window Film, How Does it Help Protect your Home?

It’s impossible to predict when someone will break into your home. With the aid of window security film, you can make a burglar’s plans to break in much more difficult. Security film protects the inside and outside of your house. When someone attempts to break in through the window, window film affixed with Hi-Impact caulking will hold the broken glass in place.

Not only is window film capable of deterring criminals from entering your home, but it can also stop tree limbs and other flying debris from crashing through your windows during storms. The film also makes your home much safer for children. If your child should accidentally runs into the window, causing it to break, window film will save them from falling out.

Why Should Home Owners Consider Window Film?

There are numerous reasons to consider this protection for your home. Not only is it capable of preventing burglaries, protecting reckless children and stopping flying objects, but it will also protect your property from U.V. rays. Carpeting and furniture will fade over the years from exposure to U.V. rays, but window laminate helps to filter them.

If you are looking to save some extra cash, window laminate film can also help with that. During the summer months, window film will prevent the cool air from seeping out, while during the winter, window film will keep the heat inside of your home.

How Window Film Works

Window laminate adheres to the inside of glass surfaces and can be used on homes, automobiles and business buildings. Essentially, the protective film acts as a sunscreen. Not only will it detect when radiation touches it, but it will also regulate the heat passing through the window.

How to Clean your Window

Once window film has been applied, you may notice tiny pockets of water. It might also seem somewhat hazy after installation. This is all a part of the curing process, which can take up to one month to complete. If you install a heavy security laminate, it will take longer for the water to evaporate through the film.

After the curing process, the best way to clean your window is to use water with a little soap. When you wipe down your window, use overlapping strokes as you would if you were cleaning your car windows. You can also use glass cleaning solutions but avoid industrial glass cleaners.

How long does it take to Install? What is the cost?

In most cases, dependent on the area covered, it only takes a few hours to install the protective film. The cost to supply window laminate film, affix and secure with Hi-Impact caulking can range from$ 8.99 to $16.99 per square foot. Window laminate comes in various thicknesses, translating to various price points.

film for windows has quickly become a one-solution-cures-all for various factors! Whether you have a family to protect or want to add security while living alone, the protective film can help increase your defence against burglars.
