Most everyone knows that window film can be put on vehicles but did you know that it can also be applied to the windows and doors in your home and office? Residential and commercial window film has many pretty amazing benefits which include improving energy efficiency, protecting your interiors from fading and reducing glare from the sun. Below are a few more frequently asked questions about window film:
How Long Does Window Film Last?
Window film is made to last many years, sometimes as long as 20-25 years. A window film professionally installed by Oklahoma City Window Film will last many years with the exact time depending on the type of film, size and the type of glass it is installed on. There are many residential films that come with a lifetime warranty.
Can window film protect my windows from bad weather?
