What is Residential and Commercial Window Tinting?

Residential and Commercial window tinting is the application of plastic film to the windows of homes, offices and large commercial buildings. It is a little-known "niche" market that is relatively easy to learn and can be done out of your home, meaning low start-up costs and low monthly overhead! The two primary reasons for tinting home and business windows is the reduction in heat and interior UV fading, and is very popular in the "sun-belt" region of our country as well as areas that experience hot spring and summer seasons. The learning period is normally one to three months, during which time you tint your own windows (the film can be easily removed unless allowed to "set-up," or dry for more than 10-20 minutes) over and over again until the skills of cleaning, cutting, and splicing are mastered.

An exciting area of growth in residential/commercial window tinting is in security film. Security, or Safety film, is the application of clear or lightly-shaded film that is thicker (4-15 mil) than conventional (1 mil) solar films. Security film is installed where the threat of smash-and-grab theft is high, and to prevent flying shards of glass in natural disasters, such as tornados and hurricanes. "Grafitti Film is really another term for clear Security Film applied to the exterior side of store-fronts to minimize damage to glass from spray paint and razors. The film protects the glass from damage and saves owners from the high costs of glass replacement. It is a continual source of repeat business in the inner city and along high-traffic corridors."
