Tinting our windows can effectively eliminate glare from bothering you ever again.

Additional Security

Did you know that tinting your house can provide you with more security? Using a product called Security Film, your home will be more protected from a break-in. The way the technology works is that we install the very thick film (security film) on the window and seal it. Once set, it will serve as a deterrent to a break-in. Someone attempts to break the window, the security film will keep all the broken glass in place, making it very difficult to get through. It can take anywhere from a minute to one minute and thirty seconds to get through. Alternatively, security film can be used in other settings to keep you and your family safe. For instance, having security film reduces the chance of shattered glass flying and causing potential harm if something does happen to be flying into your window.
