About the basics of tinting a home or business. The one thing to remember on tinting a home or business is, when you cut your pattern, make sure you have the clear film liner facing the window.

Is there a tint that provides privacy day and night for my home or business?
During the day, but not at night. There are ways to limit the visibility such as turning the lights off inside at night or installing blinds.

Window film is only reflective on the side that the light is on.
Can I use dark automotive tint on my home or business windows?
Not Recommended. Applying a dark, charcoal or black colored tint to a double paned glass can blow the seals on the glass which will cause window fogging. Large commercial windows that directly face the sun and are not tempered, have been known to crack due to high heat absorption. ?I only recommend residential / commercial film for these types of applications.If you are considering any non-reflective film for this type of application, please call us so we can discuss your best options.
Are the films scratch resistant?
Yes. This is not even a option. Window films without a scratch resistant hard coat have little value.
