Window Tint in an Afternoon

Looking to install your own residential window tinting? Look no further than Gila window films. Since 1978 GILA (pronounced heela) has provided window film products designed for the do it yourself window film consumer. Gila has created a static cling solar window film that is easy to apply, durable and an affordable alternative to professional installation. This window tint film stops excessive heating after installation. Made from vinyl and plastic, Gila Window Film reflects the majority of the sun’s heat coming through your windows. Not only that, it can do the opposite: in winter, it helps your house retain heat. In addition, Gila Window Film will block exterior glare, an especially important factor if you live on a busy street, and it will reduce any fading of carpeting, fabrics or anything else affected by UV rays.
Platinum All-Season Heat Control Film LES 361, for example comes in a package that contains a roll of film that is 3 feet by 15 feet. In its rolled-up state, Gila Window Film looks reflective and silvery. Don’t panic; your house will not look like a skyscraper in an office park. Once on the window, the film has just a slight tint–no mirror effect at all.
Tools you will need to apply your window film are: a squeegee handle, squeegee blade, edging tool, utility knife, lint cloth, and application solution.  This is available in a complete application kit.
Gila Window Film is not difficult to apply. As long as you have a large, clean, flat working surface and a long straightedge (maybe a drywall square), you’re good to go. Cut the film slightly larger than the glass. Remember that the film is slippery and does take some patience (Save the coffee for after you’re done). Guess what – there is no sticky adhesive to worry about. Spray the solution, put down the film, readjust if necessary, cut the excess, and you are ready for that cup of coffee. If you see a mistake even 3-5 days later you can pull it up and reapply it.
