The Life of Your Window Film Depends on These Three Factors

A lot of people in the Denver area reach out to us with questions about whether or not window films are durable.  As it were they are!  Even more to the point, we use C-bond 2 for our applications which makes it adhere even better.  Applied correctly, window film will last 10-20 years.  However, there are factors that influence how long it will stay adhered and effective.

 Three Things That Could Make Your Window Film Peel Off

 Window films are a fantastic and low-maintenance way to improve your home. But there are different factors that influence how long your decorative window film will last. Let’s take a closer look at some of these key considerations:


  1. Decorative Window Film That Is Installed Incorrectly: Window film is a lot more complicated than it seems. Even the best installers can make mistakes during installation and causing the lifespan of the film to decrease.  This is why choosing an experienced contractor who offers a workmanship warranty on their installations is a must.
  1. A Poor Quality Window Film: Do you know what makes a window film look good and last long? Quality. If a film is of poor quality, it will not be able to function as long or as well as a cheap film.  Trusted brands might cost more but are worth every penny in aesthetics and lifespan! A great way to ensure your window film is of good quality is to talk to a Denver professional like us to learn more about the brand, warranties, and reviews of the film from past clients.
  1. The Orientation Of The Decorative Window Film: On average, window tinting will last about 10-20 years before it needs to be replaced due to the sun’s exposure.  The orientation of windows is something that will dictate where in that range your home’s film will fall.  Southern-facing or western-facing windows are exposed to the sun more than films on other sides of a structure.  This means they will wear down faster.  Happily, reputable window film brands offer lifetime warranties on home films and 10-year on commercial.
