Looking into getting some solar window films installed in your home or office? I’m sure you have done some research online. Lots of people get excited when they see solar window films are sold online and in stores. They think they can do it for less without using a professional company like us. Sure you can find solar window films in do-it-yourself stores like Lowes or Home Depot, but that doesn’t mean you should go out and buy it. Here’s why…

Quality. Solar films sold in DIY stores like Lowes or Home Depot are not made of the same quality as the products offered through professional grade film suppliers and companies like AZ Glass Tinting. We hand select our products based upon quality and performance. We use brands like SolarGard and SunTek that offer exceptional product quality at great prices for consumers like you! Cheaper doesn’t mean better. Cheaper more often than anything means lower quality.

Durability. Lower quality products bought at big box stores aren’t made as well and therefore don’t last as long. The films are predisposed to wrinkling, peeling, bubbling, and discoloration. Films purchased through companies like AZ Glass Tinting are made to last a “lifetime”. Most films we supply to our consumers last 15-20 years. When you’re buying a product that is designed to be exposed to high levels of sun and UV rays, don’t you want a product that is made for it and proven to be durable and long lasting? Of course you do. Don’t cut corners by buying a product online or at your local DIY store. Your money will not go as far as you might think.

Aesthetics. When you’re doing updates to your home or office, you want it to look good and be aesthetically pleasing. The cheaper and lower quality products just don’t look very good. During installation there are a lot of things that can go wrong if you don’t know what you’re doing. Film can be easily wrinkled, creased or damaged if you’re not knowledgeable about how to handle it. Unfortunately once those blemishes occur, they cannot be fixed. Additionally, the film needs to be fitted perfectly to you windows to avoid any unsightly gaps and areas where water or dust can get behind the film causing peeling and bubbling. Knowing how to properly install window films takes years to perfect. Using professionals like the expert installers we have at AZ Glass Tinting ensures an attractive and proper installation. We have been doing this for decades!

Warranties. Buying products online or in DIY stores may seem like a great choice because you’re saving a few dollars here or there, but what happens if that product gets damaged? Unfortunately you’re completely out the money you invested and you will have to do it all again. Using companies like AZ Glass Tinting means you’re working with a company that has the proper knowledge and quality products you want when you’re getting window films installed. The best part is our products come with lifetime warranties that cover a number of defects including those from regular wear and tear such as bubbling, peeling and discoloration due to sun exposure. Our products even provide warranty protection for your glass. Now your investment is protected. Instead of losing that money you invested, just give us a call if a problem arises and we will take care of it for you.

Time. Unless you’re a professional installer, you have absolutely no idea how to install solar window film. You will have to not only invest in the product and tools to do the installation yourself, you also will have to invest a great deal of time researching how to install them. Once you’re done researching, you will have to actually go through the installation process. This could take you days to finish on your own (possibly longer). We have been doing this a long long time and know how to do it right. Let us save you the time and hassle. Our team can get the films professionally installed quickly so you don’t have to take away from your day to day tasks and plans.

As you can see there are a lot of benefits to going with a professional company to install your solar window film. These are just some of the many advantages. Sometimes spending a little bit more is well worth the investment.
