When you’re looking to keep the temperature nice and cool inside your home while protecting both your windows and indoor furnishings, solar film is definitely the solution. It’s easy to look at a window covered in this specially designed reflective film and think that you could handle the installation yourself. We know that there are many “do-it-yourselfers” out there who prefer to try a project like this on their own before turning to a professional.
But before you attempt to install solar film yourself, consider the following:
- It’s not as easy as it looks.
Believe it or not, there is some skill and technique involved in the installation of solar film on windows. You could spend hours trying to install the film properly only to find that it’s not turning out the way you had planned. On the other hand, the professionals at Arizona Blinds have hundreds of hours under their belts, both installing and maintaining solar film. Experience has taught us the little tricks and tips that end up making a huge difference. It also helps us be more time-efficient when installing or replacing film.
We’re not suggesting that you aren’t capable of quality work, but there are so many details to consider when installing solar film. Having experience working with the film allows Arizona Blinds to pay close attention to detail, giving you the highest quality installation. You won’t have to worry if the installation was done correctly or if it will be effective. Attempting to install solar film on your own can cause you to overlook these details and result in sub-standard job. The last thing you want is to end up with problems down the road because your film wasn’t installed properly.
We’d also add that it could be difficult to find the same high quality film used at Arizona Blinds when you’re trying to do the project yourself. The top-rated Panorama window film we use is not always simple to attain and use.
- Using the right product for the right window.
It may seem like such a small detail, but in fact, there are certain solar films that tend to work better with certain types of glass. Attempting to install window film on your own could lead to applying film that isn’t the best fit for the type of window glass you have in your home or office. When Arizona Blinds first takes on a new job, we carefully inspect the glass to make sure we use the most effective and safest solar film. This ensures a better overall experience for our customers and the least amount of damage to windows.
Keep in mind that many of the warranties offered by manufacturers of solar film are only valid when the film is handled and installed by an authorized dealer such as Arizona Blinds.
You’ll love the comfort that solar film provides in your home or office. It can make such a huge difference, especially when it’s professionally and properly installed by the experts at Arizona Blinds. To learn more, give us a call at 602-938-2885.
