Residential Window Tinting
3M Residential Window Tinting Benefits
Residential window tinting involves fitment of a special film over the windows of your home. This unique process blocks the UV and heat from the sun and can help provide your home with several advantages:
- Blocked ultraviolet rays. Harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun can cause sun burn and even skin damage. While many people apply sunblock when heading outdoors, many homeowners underestimate the amount of UV they are absorbing while indoors. Unless you have special window tinting applied to your windows, you are exposed to harmful and damaging UV rays every time you walk by your windows.
- Reduced glare. Bright sunlight can make it hard for you to enjoy the television and can give you terrible headaches. While blinds and curtains are a solution, they can make your home dark. Window tinting for your home reduces glare and enhances the comfort of your home while still allowing safe levels of natural sunlight in.
- Reduce fading. Just as UV rays can be harmful to your skin, they can also fade and damage furniture, carpets, and other possessions. They can even permanently damage electronics. Residential window tinting can save you money by helping prevent sun damage and fading.
- Improved privacy and safety. Architectural window films for your home can prevent others from looking into your home, which can ensure that no one is invading your privacy or evaluating your home for a theft. Tinting your windows still allows you to see outside clearly, but ensures that only the visitors you trust can see inside your home.
- Better energy efficiency and cost savings. By keeping your home naturally cooler during the summer and by locking in heat during the winter, window film can save you money on energy costs.

Let in the light. Not the heat.
Aesthetics. Comfort. Energy savings. Protection. Take sun control to a whole new level for your building. Sunlight streaming through windows can create excessive heat, uncomfortable hot spots and glare. These issues may impact energy costs, tenant comfort and retention and, ultimately, your bottom line.
Solar heat comes from two primary sources, the visible light you can see and the infrared light you can feel. Prestige Series window films use non metallized, multi layer optical film and nano technology to reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light and reject up to 60% of the heat coming through your windows. These films also reject up to 99.9% of damaging UV rays to reduce fading of your furnishings. These industry leading, spectrally selective films are designed to keep you cool, comfortable and protected.
These spectrally selective films reject up to 97% of the sun’s heat producing infrared light to keep you cool, comfortable and protected.
What sets our films apart is the precision with which light waves are controlled as they pass through or reflect off of hundreds of layers of film. Compared to other films, 3M™ Window Films increase performance at a faster rate as the sun’s angle increases. That means greater protection and comfort when you need it the most.
Glass windows help make your home beautiful and inviting. But sunlight can create excessive heat and expose your family and possessions to damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. Let in the light but keep out the heat and damaging UV rays without impacting your home’s aesthetics or your view.
