Top 10 Reasons to Invest in Window Film for Your Home or Business

Homeowners and business owners are constantly looking for ways to improve their properties. One of the best investments that will improve comfort, lower costs, and enhance property value is to consider adding 3M window films to your windows. Here are ten reasons to get window film installed for your home or business:

Decrease Heat

3M window films lead the way in advanced technology and are constantly improving to provide better products year after year. Our films can provide as much as 85% heat reduction compared to untreated glass and competitors.

Cut Glare

3M window films target spectrally select rays from the sun and reduce glare while also improving the view through your windows. Here in Sarasota, Florida, and surrounding areas such as Tampa, Naples, and others, we get very bright sunny days that increase glare. 3M window films drastically cut down glare and improve comfort in your space.

3M™ Sun Control Window Films are designed to reduce the amount of heat transmitted through window glass by reflecting some of the heat back outside.

Reduce Fading

Our window films reduce up to 99% of harmful UV rays that are the cause of sun damage that leads to fading furniture, artwork, hardwood flooring, and other assets in your home or business.

Increased Privacy

We have a wide selection of window films, one being 3M Fasara, which comes in over 100+ patterns, designs, opacity ranges, and more to increase privacy for your home while also adding a personal touch that compliments your style.

Our 3M Safety And Security Films for residential and commercial buildings helps keep glass intact to prevent shattering and also slows down breaches to provide extra time for people to escape, take shelter, and notify authorities.

It is extremely difficult to prevent a determined intruder from breaking in and attacking children and adults, however our films are an additional layer of protection when you need it most. Add a level of safety and security with 3MTM Security Window Films & Attachment Systems.
