Below is a step-by-step guide on how to apply window film like a pro:

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Before you start, make sure you have all the necessary materials ready. You’ll need the window film of your choice, a spray bottle filled with a solution of water and a few drops of dish soap, a squeegee or a soft cloth, a utility knife, and a tape measure.

Step 2: Clean the Window Surface

Thoroughly clean the window surface to ensure there are no dust, dirt, or grease residues. Use a glass cleaner or the water and soap solution mentioned earlier to clean the window. Wipe it dry with a lint-free cloth.

Step 3: Measure and Cut the Film

Measure the window’s dimensions carefully and add an extra inch to each side. Roll out the window film on a clean surface and use the measurements to cut the film with a utility knife. For large windows, you might need a helping hand to hold the film in place while cutting.

Step 4: Prepare the Film for Application

Spray the window film’s adhesive side with the water and soap solution to prevent it from sticking too soon. Be generous with the spray, but not to the point of excessive dripping.

Step 5: Position the Film on the Window

Carefully place the adhesive side of the window film onto the window surface. Make sure the film aligns with the window edges and slightly overlaps the frame. The soapy water solution will allow you to slide the film into the right position if needed.

Step 6: Smooth Out the Film

Using a squeegee or a soft cloth, start from the center and gently smooth out the film towards the edges. This step helps to eliminate air bubbles and ensures proper adhesion to the glass.

Step 7: Trim Excess Film

Once the film is applied and smoothed out, use the utility knife to trim off the excess film along the window’s edges. Be careful not to damage the window frame while cutting.

Step 8: Final Squeegee Pass

Give the entire window surface one final pass with the squeegee to remove any remaining water and air bubbles. Work from the center towards the edges once again.

Step 9: Let it Dry

Allow the window film to dry for at least 24 hours before touching or cleaning it. This ensures that the film adheres properly to the glass.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully applied window film to your window like a pro. Enjoy the benefits of enhanced privacy, reduced glare, and improved energy efficiency in your space!

Window Tint Film FAQ

Window tint film is a thin, multi-layered polyester material that incorporates the many different layers to control different properties, including Ultra-Violet (UV) light, heat, glare, and privacy. Window film comes in a variety of performance levels and shades.

Window tint film actually has several benefits. Firstly, it can help to reduce the amount of heat that enters your car or home, which can make it more comfortable and reduce your energy bills. Additionally, it can protect your skin and eyes from harmful UV rays, which can cause sunburn and other damage. Another benefit is increased privacy, as tinted windows can make it harder for people to see inside. Finally, window tint film can also help to reduce glare on sunny days, which can be especially helpful when driving or working.

Film percentages stand for light transmission, or the amount of light that is allowed through the film. The lower the percentage, the darker the film.

No. In most cases, window film is installed on the inside of the glass. This allows for maximum durability. On vehicles, the window tint is hand-cut on the outside of the glass, then installed on the interior of the glass.

Yes, window film adds a degree of shatter resistance to the glass areas of your home, building, or vehicle. These films bond to glass and help hold dangerous glass fragments in place, should breakage occur due to accident, natural disaster, or illegal entry.

Yes. The same sun that brightens a room’s interior can be detrimental to fabrics, furnishings, artwork, and rugs. Ultraviolet rays are the main cause of both fade and deterioration. Window films can screen out 99% of the damaging UV rays that can fade richly colored furniture, tapestries, and artwork. Heat and light also play a part in fading, but using window film to block nearly 100% of UV rays will increase the life of your personal property for years.

Yes. Window films give a clear view to the outside. Depending on the degree of privacy desired, you can select films that prevent others from looking in during the daytime.

No. The adhesive is meant to adhere to glass only. Window film should only be applied to glass surfaces that have a smooth finish. Plastics, Plexiglas, or Lexan contain too much oil for the film to adhere properly for a long period of time.

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.

  1. Window film creates a more comfortable environment through consistent climate control by eliminating “cold wall” and “hot wall” problems. Rooms stay more comfortable in the summer and winter, be reducing “hot spots”, no matter where the sun is shining.

Yes. Glare not only can cause eye fatigue, but it can also be dangerous when driving. It reduces the amount of light allowed through the film, therefore allowing you to see better and not stress your eyes.
