Here are some common frequently asked questions regarding window film that Austin property owners often ask.

The Most Common Questions Regarding Window Film for Austin Properties

Can window film damage my windows?

In the past, property owners may have read of rare cases of window film damaging windows. This is due to an incompatible product being installed on certain low-E windows. Certain energy-saving window films can cause excessive trapped heat when combined with energy-saving windows. In order to avoid this, simply work with a reliable window film contractor and avoid DIY installations.

Does window film kill houseplants?

Window film only blocks excessive heat and UV radiation, not the red and blue light needed by houseplants to survive. Window film installation can actually provide benefits for houseplants by stabilizing temperatures, reducing excessive window heat, and blocking overexposure to harmful UV radiation.

How often do you clean window film?

Window film is less porous than glass– you won’t have to clean your windows as much. We recommend using a mild detergent with a non-abrasive cloth for cleaning. Silcone polishes may also be used time to time but this is not required.
