Can Window Film Damage My Windows?

Customers often wonder if installing window film for their Colorado Springs home or building will damage their windows. If you too find yourself with this question, you’ve come to the right place! Below, we’ve provided a detailed answer and discussed the matter in detail.

Will Window Tinting Damage Windows?

Window tinting itself does not damage windows. Damage occurs only when the installation is performed incorrectly. That’s why it’s important to hire a pro to install your window tint.

The Importance of Professional Window Film Installation

Here’s how professional window film installation can help you avoid damage to your windows:

Avoids Thermal Breakage

Different windows have different strengths and tolerances. That’s why it’s important to install window tint that is compatible with the type of windows you have. Otherwise, you run the risk of thermal stress breaks

This damage happens when parts of your glass heat up, but other parts don’t, resulting in a crack or breakage. Low-E and tinted window films are the ones usually most affected by this kind of damage. That’s why we always double-check window compatibility before applying your film!

Air Bubbles or Foggy Windows

If the window film in your Colorado Springs building is applied incorrectly, a couple of different problems can happen. For starters, the glass of your window will be disrupted by bubbling due to air trapped between the glass and the coating. Additionally, your window tint isn’t properly applied it can also damage the seals of the window. This can lead to window fogging. That means you might have difficulty seeing out your windows!
