The Importance of Hiring a Certified Window Film Installer

There are many different types of film that you can install on your windows. The most common type of film that can be installed is window tint, but there are also films to help protect against vandalism and break-ins or to be used to make a window more decorative. If you are looking to install film on your commercial or residential windows, it is important to hire a certified window film installer. Here are a few of the reasons why.

A Certified Window Film Installer Can Help You Determine What Type of Tint or Film Is Best For Your Building

One of the reasons why it is so important to hire a certified window film installer is because they have the expertise to help you determine what type of film or tint is best for your home or business. There are many different types of films and tints that can be installed, and there are many factors you should consider when selecting a film or tint. A professional can help explain the various options available to you, helping you to select the option that best meets your needs. 

Your Warranty Can Be Voided If the Film is Not Installed By a Certified Professional

One of the lesser-known reasons why it is important to hire a certified window film installer is because the warranty that comes with the film can be voided if the film is not installed by a certified professional. For example, 3M offers a warranty on all of their window tinting films. However, those films have to be installed by a 3M certified window film installer or the warranty is instantly voided. 

A Certified Window Film Installer Can Teach You How to Properly Care For Your Film 

Your window film needs to be properly cleaned and cared for, or it may not last as long as it is designed to. Certain soaps, cleaning products, and abrasive brushes or sponges can damage, discolor or deteriorate the film. Unfortunately, not everyone knows what to use or not use on their films, and different films may have different cleaning and care requirements. A certified professional can tell you how to properly clean and care for your window films. 

Your Tint or Film May Not Last As Long If Not Properly Installed

The last reason why it is important to hire a certified window film installer is that your tint or window film may not last as long if it is not properly installed by a professional. A professional knows how to prepare your windows, has the tools to tightly adhere the film to the window, and knows how to push all of the air bubbles out, ensuring a tight seal. All of this helps the window film to last longer.
