Love and Protect Your Home’s Comfort, Beauty & Value
Homeowners often don’t know where to begin in the process of protecting the investment they’ve made in a home, and enhancing it in a way that will return value year after year. 

Happy 2016! Now, Let's Stick to Our Resolutions....

Happy 2016! I hope you enjoyed ringing in the New Year exactly how you wanted to, and
that 2016 is off to a great start. 

Happy New Year! Now Let’s Stick to Our Resolutions Unpublished

Happy 2016! I hope you enjoyed ringing in the New Year exactly how you wanted to, and that 2016 is off to a great start. This time of year can be great. It offers a lot of inspiration and a chance for us to share our loftiest aspirations for the year ahead, and a chance for a fresh start. That’s what New Year’s Resolutions are all about.


But this can be challenging too – as many of our so-called “Resolutions” require a fair amount of perspiration in one form or another, whether they demand physical effort, financial outlay, or time allocation. Things worth doing usually don’t come easy. So, it is especially exciting for me to share with you one great solution for your home or vehicle that is relatively quick and easy in terms of both the labor, expense and time involved – and it can help keep quite a few New Year’s resolutions (for this year and maybe even new resolutions for years to come)! Yes - professionally installed window film.


If you’ve resolved to be more environmentally conscious, or perhaps consume less energy – window film can help you achieve this by blocking a tremendous amount of solar heat gain that comes through ordinary glass into your home. With professionally installed window film, you won’t miss excessive heat gain, hot rooms where the larger windows are, or hot spots where a skylight pours in both gorgeous

sunlight along with uncomfortable heat. Instead, you may use less air conditioning and your home could consume less energy. When your home is a more consistent temperature throughout – you can potentially save energy and save money. 


If you’ve resolved to take better care of your skin, UV protection is one of the first thoughts that comes to mind. But many people forget that harmful cancer-causing UV rays penetrate regular glass (they can wreak havoc on your décor by fading furnishings and artwork too – but that’s another resolution). If you’re not wearing sunglasses and sunscreen when you spend time near your windows, and you’d like to keep your skin youthful and healthy, then you could benefit by calling your local accredited window film dealer.


Check out the dealer locator on the IWFA website and join our Facebook and Twitter communities to learn more information about window film than you ever knew was possible! It might just be the support you need to stick with the ambitious New Year’s resolutions you’ve made for 2016. Most people are amazed at how quick and easily window film can be installed, and the potential returns on investment are very rewarding!

Hit the Road in Comfort and Style, with Professionally Installed Window Film

Spring is here and it's a great season to plan the family road trips that you’ll remember forever! My family enjoys travelling to see new places and get out of our routine with a great vacation. In addition to that, like many other families, we spend countless hours in our vehicles commuting to and from work, traveling to sports events, competitions, social engagements, family celebrations and more.


With all of this time spent in our vehicles, and a growing understanding of how important it is to reduce UV exposure to our skin and eyes – it amazes me that more families aren’t aware of the important benefits professionally installed window film can deliver. It provides real peace of mind to families while they spend all of these hours in the car.


While we truly enjoy our family road trips, they can also be stressful at times. Professionally installed window film not only creates a more comfortable cabin, it might even reduce the number of times your very uncomfortable younger passengers will ask “are we there yet?”  Here’s how.


Window film can block up to 99% of UV rays to help keep our skin and eyes more protected and healthy. It can also dramatically reduce glare – which can make the driving experience easier on your eyes as well as the sight-seers riding with you, no matter how bright the sun is shining. Window film can also reduce solar heat gain within the cabin of your vehicle. This means the seats might not feel like they’re sizzling when you hop in to hit the road this summer on a sunny day, and because your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard to cool the cabin, you may also use less fuel.


Consumers who want to take advantage of the benefits of professionally installed window film can learn more about it from the International Window Film Association (IWFA). The IWFA provides a dealer locator on our website, where you can find an accredited professional in your area and read our automotive e-booklet.


April is car care month – so now is a perfect time to book an appointment for professional window film installation! And later in the coming month on April 30th, we’ll be celebrating National Window Film Day. Dealers, installers, and manufacturers will hold special events at window film locations across the country, and the IWFA invites you to join their Tweet chat that day using #WindowFilmDay on Twitter.


When you visit the IWFA website, please join our social media community on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube so you can continue to learn more about the benefits of professionally installed window film whether for your car, home, or office.


Happy Driving!

Give Thanks for Window Film This Year, and Make Your Holiday Table the Most Gorgeous and Enjoyable Ever!

We are officially in the midst of the holiday season, and we hope everyone enjoyed a happy Thanksgiving! While there are so many things you could do to help prepare your home for the holidays, the IWFA has one enhancement to help will make this year's gatherings the best yet and give you a few extra reasons to be thankful during every season for years to come. Professionally installed window film, of course! Think about this, if your holiday table is near the windows, guests are often racing for the glare-free seats or vying for less sun-blinding positions as they adjust to the angle of the sun as it hangs lower in the sky this time of year. With professionally installed window film, your guests aren't affected by the sun's angle. Instead, the only thing your guests will notice is the warm hospitality, and of course your great view, thanks to the significant glare reduction.


Your guests will likely not even realize your windows have film when they feel more relaxed than ever at your home this Thanksgiving. Not to mention, their skin and eyes will be protected at your home, too. When they realize that dangerous UV rays penetrate ordinary glass, but not glass with professionally installed window film, they will be thankful for that as well! Many friends of ours are surprised at first, when they see we have the drapes open wide without worrying about uncomfortable glare or fading the vibrant fabrics in our dining room. They stay bright and beautiful year after year!


When our guests lament on how they’re always cautious about opening their shades when sun is streaming into the house, I love sharing what window film has to offer! I never tire of the amazed look on new friends’ faces when I explain all of the protective benefits of window film. They are usually impressed and quite amazed that they never noticed a difference in the look of our windows!  The visible light comes through, and the damaging UV rays are reduced by up to 99%. That gives everyone great peace of mind when it comes to keeping furniture, rugs, artwork, photographs and of course our skin in tip-top shape!
