Heat – Glare – Privacy

The three most popular reasons why people consider residential window tinting for their home, are heat, glare, and privacy. Many films address all three. But we want to look at each issue separately, and how they can be dealt with effectively.

In San Antonio, heat is the number one reason people seek out residential window tinting. Air conditioners can have a difficult time keeping up with the heat that the sun dishes out. Window tint can be an effective solution. A very effective residential window film that we install here at Fletch Window Tint is a product called Tru Vue 15.
