The Power of Protection – What Residential Window Film Can Do

October 29, 2015

A home is the epitome of protection, but even the strongest house can fall victim to damage from the sun and the elements. Windows are a glaring weak point as the sun’s harmful rays, rain, wind and storm debris can frequently break in.

To safeguard you, your family and everything else inside your house, it’s important to add a form of defense to your windows. At Tint World®, many of our customers and franchise owners themselves have taken a cue from the automotive styling world to install residential window film on their home’s windows as a form of protection.

Below are just a few benefits of installing residential window tint in your home:

  • Storm Protection: During hurricane season or in other storm-prone regions, debris and wind can break the seal between your family and the dangers outside. By adding storm security window film, you can double your protection by turning your windows into shatter-proof safety glass, similar to a car’s front windshield.
  • Break-in Protection: Approximately 60 percent of burglaries are forced entries, meaning your home’s windows are at risk. With residential window film strengthens your windows, reducing the chances of a crook breaking-in.
  • Furniture Protection: The sun can wreak havoc on your home’s furniture, from discoloration to cracking. With window film, harmful ultraviolet light is blocked, prolonging the life of your furniture, wood floors and other decorations inside.
  • Skin Protection: Too much sunshine can also put you and your loved ones in harm’s way. By blocking UV rays with Skin Cancer Foundation-approved window film, you can reduce glare and protect your skin at the same time.

While the benefits are clear, without professional help, determining which variety of residential window film to get and having it installed can be a challenge. If you’re ready to reap the benefits residential window film can bring to your family and your home, contact your local Tint World® today to discuss your options.
