This is completely normal and temporary. The moisture that remains between the film and the glass after installation can cause a hazy, streaky and blotchy appearance. It takes several days for the adhesive/film to completely cure. The remaining moisture will evaporate through the film. Depending on the type of film, this process may take a couple of days, or even a couple of months. When the water evaporates completely, your windows should have excellent clarity.
We recommend keeping your windows up for at least 2 days to prevent the tint from peeling off before it has enough time to cure. Should this happen we can redo your window at a low cost, as it is not covered under the warranty.
Your windows have been lightly wiped down after being tinted. We recommend any cleaning, if necessary to the inside surface of the glasses being carried out after at least 2 days to give it time to cure. Cleaning should be done with a soft paper towel or microfibre cloth and any ammonia-free cleaner. There are cleaners made specifically for tinted windows sold in auto section of supermarket or specialised auto shops. You can also use a mixture of water and vinegar, or water and methylated spirit or really anything without ammonia or abrasives.
Dust is a fact of life. The atmosphere we are living in is full of dust. You can see this by looking through a sun beam. It is impossible to eliminate dust completely. Our job is to minimise the amount of dust that can get between the film and the glass. A few speck of dust under the film can cause some tiny white spots. However, they don’t affect the longevity of the film and they don’t get any bigger over time.
Damaged window film cannot be repaired, but the damaged piece of film can be removed and the glass can be re-tinted.
Our tint is installed on the inside of the glass and is coated with a high quality scratch resistant layer. However, the key word is resistant. Take care when loading and unloading objects with sharp or hard edges, boxes, sporting equipment, etc. It is possible to tear even the best tint with a sharp or hard object hitting against it. Untinted glass can also be damaged in the same fashion. If this happened, the cost of re-tinting the window is generally inexpensive and not covered under the warranty.
Window tint can block out 99% of the harmful UV rays, up to 50% of heat and glare, of which privacy glass doesn’t even come close. Adding to that, window tint increases the strength as well as the safety of the glass. In case of an accident the tint prevents the glass from being shattered thus reduces the risk of injury to the occupants.
The same sun that brightens a room’s interior can be detrimental to fabrics, furnishings, artwork, and rugs. UV rays are the main cause of both fade and deterioration. Window tint can block 99% of the damaging UV rays and help make your room interior as well as your furniture last and retained their original colour much longer.
No. Window films are designed to be installed onto smooth glass surface therefore we won’t be able to give any guarantee when it is used otherwise.
In summer, window film reflects the hot sun, reducing heat gain and lowering air conditioning costs. In winter, window film retains heat — up to 15% — to reduce heating costs. This year-after-year reduction in energy costs can yield an impressive return on investment.
Window film creates a more comfortable environment through consistent climate control by eliminating “cold wall” and “hot wall” problems. Rooms stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, no matter where the sun is shining.
