Window Film Myths: Separating Fact from Fiction

There are a lot of myths about window film floating around on the internet these days. One customer has a bad experience or receives inaccurate information, posts about it online, and boom! – the whole thing explodes and a myth is born. But in reality, a lot of these stories are just misconceptions. They’re the result of a lack of knowledge and understanding, or lies spread by window manufacturing companies that are trying to get out of a warranty.

Top Three Misconceptions

Here are the three most common misconceptions that we hear about window tinting.

#1: Window Film Ruins Your Windows

False. There is no scientific data that supports this claim. So long as the right kind of film is used, and installed correctly, it will not ruin your windows.

#2: It Doesn’t Work

False. An abundance of evidence shows that window film is highly effective. This includes numerous case studies by real customers. It’s even recommended by the Department of Energy.

#3: It Blocks the Sun

False. A lot of people think that window film will make their windows dark or block out the sun. Neither is true. The window film used on buildings is a lot different than the type that’s used on cars. There are plenty of clear window films, as well as options that provide high levels of Visible Light Transmission.
