One of the key challenges of remodeling an older property is bringing it up to code. Often, building codes today require tempered safety glass for windows located near pools, stairs, and other high-risk areas. Tempered glass, however, can be costly, especially if you have to purchase a lot of it. Safety window film offers Dallas property owners a low-cost alternative that’s ideal for glass strengthening.


Using Safety Window Film to Bring Your Home Up to Code

Remodeling a home can be a challenging, yet rewarding experience. You get the opportunity to personalize your home while also increasing its value and building equity, which ultimately benefits your future. If you’re remodeling an older home, however, one of the issues that you may encounter is that the parts and systems of your home are no longer up to code.

For example, if you have windows located near a staircase, swimming pool, or bathtub, these should technically be made of tempered safety glass. Tempered safety glass is stronger than ordinary glass, so if someone slips and falls, they’re less likely to break the window and get hurt. It is, however, more expensive than normal window glass.

That’s why we recommend using safety window film in your Dallas home as a tempered glass alternative. Safety film is great for glass-strengthening applications like those mentioned above. It increases the shatter resistance of glass and is available at an affordable price.


A Great Option for Retrofitting Existing Windows

Another benefit of using safety window film for updating your home is that it doesn’t involve any construction. You can simply retrofit your existing windows instead of replacing them. That means you don’t have to get a building permit or deal with any of the hassle and mess involved with making structural changes to your home. It’s simple and cost-effective.
