Window Film Columbus helps protect your residential interior furnishings, including furniture, carpeting, and fabrics by blocking solar heat and intense UV light. Direct sunlight causes severe fading and hot spots on carpet, rugs, curtains and blinds. Drying, cracking and peeling of paint, wood furniture, leather, plastics, artwork, photographs and books are also due to sunlight exposure. Any company that provides and installs window film will work with clients to strike that balance between enjoying the sunlight and keeping it from damaging belongings. Many tints are virtually clear, but there are choices that have texture and decorative designs to add privacy without distorting your views of the outside during the day or at night time.
There are some practical things to know about window film before getting it installed. Home improvement stores do carry window films and related products that may seem cheaper at first glance. The thing to consider is they can be difficult to install and it is possible to end up with bubbles and cracks in the film that compromise the look and the benefits of the film. Professional installers usually give you a guarantee against bubbles, cracks, peeling and discoloring over time. If the company you are considering does not offer a guarantee, consider another company.
You also need to know that most window manufacturers view filming or tinting of the windows as a modification to their original product, and may not honor their warranty. This is not really an important issue, however, because the manufacturers of window films offer a comparable warranty that matches that of most window manufacturers. You will still have a warranty on your windows, you just need to make sure that coverage is the same and that you are satisfied.
