Often times when folks prepare to apply window film, residential property owners face challenges not often faced by other types of tinting. Whether it is the type of product purchased, the installation process, or addressing the Home Owners Association, structural tinting takes some forethought and planning. However, adding any type of tinting offers numerous advantages that are unique to the product.
When it comes to window film, residential property owners need to consider all local guidelines in place by the Home Owners Association (HOA). While most HOA’s do not directly address the addition of tinting, there are generally one or two provisions addressing a change in appearance to the property. If there are questions concerning making any changes to a property, one of the best rules of thumb is to contact the HOA leaders and ask.
One of the safest ways to add film to a property is to purchase clear window film. Residential properties still get most of the same wonderful benefits associated with security or one-way tints, but insure all HOA regulations are maintained because there is not a visible change to the premises.
What are some of the benefits afforded by clear or see-through tints?
All tints have the capabilities to reduce fading, control glare, block solar heat, help with heat retention, and add security. However, there are times when the homeowner may want to add decorative value, privacy, or one-way tints to a residence. With so many options available for the consumers, it is easy to find the perfect selection to fit the need for each of the windows to the property.
Another reason so many owners are turning to tinting is that it adds value to the property without a lot of effort or cost. In fact, tinting is more affordable today than in years past due to better software technologies, product development, and cost-effective machinery. Many property owners are choosing to purchase this product online and simply apply it themselves once it arrives. Window film companies are now offering pre-cut tints along the rolled window film.
Residential properties definitely benefit from applying a high-quality tint to any surface. Some of the benefits that often go overlooked are that the value of the property will actually increase. There are tax credits and refunds available helping to offset the purchasing price. Lastly, the decorative tints can add a sophistication or simple elegance to any room’s décor.
Of course, there are other advantages to investing in a high-quality tint. Combining electronics and sunlight often mean having a nasty glare on the television, but adding tint can help significantly reduce or completely remove that unsightly glare. There are areas where hurricanes and other weather conditions can cause serious damage to property, but a high-quality residential film can keep shattered glass in place which will reduce the damage caused by debris.
The possibilities of a high-quality window film, whether residential, commercial, governmental, or vehicle affords the owner with numerous benefits not easily replicated by other products. In addition, most tinting can be applied by first timers with a bit of direction.
