Professional Window Film Installation vs DIY

While we understand the need for protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays (UVR) outdoors, many people don’t realize indoor exposure can be just as damaging. Temperature does not affect UVR strength, in fact, UVR levels are stronger in the higher elevations of Northern Utah and reflect off the snow. Window film installation is a great way to reduce sun glare, increase insulation and protect you and your family from UVR exposure.

Residents and business owners along the Wasatch Front and in Southern Utah enjoy many benefits from window film installation, including the reduction of sun glare, UVR protection, privacy, improved curb appeal and increased security from strong storms and intrusion. With so many DIY window film options available at your local home store, why choose professional window film installation? Window film is a cost-effective solution for many homeowners, but in an attempt to save even further, DIY installation so often ends in disaster. Below is a comparison of choosing to receive the benefits of professional window film installation vs doing it yourself.

Professional Window Film Installation

The window film installation process requires an experienced professional with the knowledge and training to maximize efficiency. A professional window film installer understands how to handle delicate window film and requires access to several specialized tools like a breakaway utility knife, film aid application concentrate, the proper single-edged razor blade, and soft lint-free cloth. The professional window film installation process includes:

  • Precise Measurements – windows need to be precisely measured to ensure maximum insulation, privacy, protection, and efficiency.
  • Thorough Cleaning window must be thoroughly cleaned of all debris, grime, dust, and film. A special liquid solution is applied just before the film to act as a lubricant.
  • Film Liner Removal – The clear film backing is removed prior to application. The film liner removal technique is important to ensure that the application is smooth without bubbling or wrinkling for correct alignment.
  • Final Adjustments – Lastly, your professional window film installer will ensure moisture and air trapped between the film and window is removed with a squeegee. The edges will be trimmed to perfectly fit the window.
