The pros of residential window tinting

Usually when you think of window tinting, you think of car window tinting. Did you know that you can also add value to your home, as well as increasing your safety, comfort, and style, by tinting your residential windows? A seemingly simple process of applying a transparent sheet of film to glass can have tremendous benefits and impact on the curb appeal, privacy, and security of your home, as well as help you save money in the long run on heating/cooling costs and protect your furnishings from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.

Benefits of residential window tinting

  • Enhances home safety and security: Applying a thin film on your windows adds a layer of protection that can help prevent your glass from shattering if an unfortunate or harmful impact occurs, either due to an accident, a natural occurrence such as a tree falling, or an attempted home invasion. 


  • Prevents heat loss and gain: Residential window tinting can help your home’s glass surfaces reject infrared heat, which can cut down on your cooling costs during the summer. The added insulation provided by an applied layer of window tinting film also helps keep heat from escaping your home during the winter. 


  • Protects interior furnishings from fading: Your home’s upholstery, carpeting, curtains, and any other fabric surfaces will fade if exposed to UV light. Residential window tinting can drastically reduce this exposure, thus reducing the severity and rapidity of fading.

Things to know about car window tinting

Thinking about tinting your car windows? Maybe your friend recently got theirs done, so now you’re curious. Perhaps you just purchased a new vehicle and want to make it your own. If you don’t know much about car window tinting, we’ve got you covered. Everything from the benefits of car window tinting to the types of car window tinting available is reviewed in this blog post.

Benefits of car window tinting

Car window tinting does more than just make your vehicle look snazzy and customized. It can help you increase your comfort and safety in the vehicle, as well as preserve the life and condition of your vehicle’s interior. When you are driving, your skin is exposed to the sun, whose ultraviolet (UV) light can cause skin damage. Car window tinting can block UV exposure. Car window tinting can also block heat from entering your vehicle. This is especially important during an Arkansas summer! Car window tinting can help your vehicle’s glass stay intact in the event of an impact. Windows that have been tinted are less likely to shatter. Car window tinting also offers privacy benefits. As long as you stay within the legal limit allowed in your particular state, you can darken your windows to a significant degree that will help prevent other people from seeing what’s inside your vehicle. This can help deter any unwanted interest or potential break-in activity or attempts.
