You Need Window Tinting Now How Do You Pick The Right Installation Company?
You know your home will benefit immensely with an installation of solar or solar security window film.
Glare control, UV eliminated, Lower electric costs and all-around comfort and safety are the benefits you’ll experience throughout the year.
Here in the Tampa Bay region the heat and sunshine last longer and stays hotter than nearly any region in the USA.
There are many installation companies to choose from. Different brands of window film and seemingly every one of these companies claims to have the best solutions and the best installers.
How to you make an educated choice?
Obviously Advanced Film Solutions is biased concerning our capabilities, experience and the brands we represent.
Factually we have more experience than any competitor given 33 years at 3M and subsequently 15 years as a family-owned business based in the Tampa area.
We represent every major window film brand other than 3M (we do install the 3M Fasara Decorative films) but we compete against 3M Window Film in every other solutions category.
From a consumer perspective the decision will largely focus on the following points:
- Efficacy of the window film short and long term.
- Clarity of the installed window film. How clear is the view and will there be any observable haze or distortion?
- Warranty concerns and demonstrated track record.
- Pricing for your specific project compared to any competitive quote.
- Third party recommendations, word of mouth reputation and stability of the installation company selected.
Let’s state at the onset that there are critical differences between window film alternatives in the US marketplace.
Advanced Film Solutions has direct experience with all window film manufacturers, re-boxed films, foreign and domestic widely available.
We have determined based on thousands of successful installations that the Eastman Chemical’s solutions are the clear winner for meeting our customer’s requirements.
They are the largest maker of window film right here in the USA.
They meet the ISO requirements and have the most tested and documented NFRC performance ratings compared to any other film producer.
Their financial strength is the impetus for huge investments in coating technologies and capacity coupled with innovation.
This becomes the foundation for meeting our customers key concern questions.
Efficacy and durability of the window film selected:
Advanced Film Solutions has performed nearly 23,000 flat glass installations with the overwhelming majority of them using an Eastman window film.
The films are designed to perform now and for decades. The clarity of the adhesives utilized are simply unmatched.
Adhesive clarity coupled with the grade of polyesters are the determining factors for transparent coatings.
Their distortion free adhesives and top-quality polyesters easily out=perform pressure sensitive adhesives used by competitive manufacturers.
This advantage presents itself when the sunlight hits the glass at various angles during the day and at different altitudes as the seasons change.
In particular we have a huge clarity advantage over 3M PSA films like their Night Vision and Prestige Film.
Low angle haze and distortion are an unfortunate reality with their installations. Furthermore, the Eastman coatings are dye free (unlike Prestige) and the Eastman films have a tough scratch resistant coating compared to the 3M alternatives.
Advanced Film Solutions provides a written lifetime warranty for our residential installations and a glass breakage warranty. More importantly the number of warranty claims is exceedingly low and more a testimony to the installation technique then a film failure.
Obviously as a company that bases its reputation on delighted clients, we can ill afford to have any post installation issues or unhappy customers. It’s vital that we only install a solution that does exactly what it is intended to do without any hassles or disappointment.
We are dedicated to providing the best solutions for your specific requirements.
Our pricing is based on the scope of work and the specific thin film that meets your objectives.
Our bottom line is to win the project based on our trusted solutions and track record.
We never use hard sell techniques or pressure tactics. Our quotes have no time limit and we always treat our prospective clients with respect, and we recognize that winning is the result of answering any and all questions and potential objections.
