Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Col. I live in Perth and I have a passion for construction. I am pretty useless when it comes to construction work so I tend to leave it to the experts. However, I find that there is nothing more pleasing than seeing a team of construction workers complete a job. Over the years, I have hired many different types of construction worker and they have all taken the time to chat with me. During these conversations, I have learnt so pretty interesting things which I will be exploring on this blog. Enjoy!

Window Tinting for Your Home

Ethan Burton

Window tinting is an effective way of solving a number of issues in your home, such as privacy and heat reduction. Spend some time delving further into these two key benefits.

Window tinting for privacy

You can opt for either one-way daytime privacy or two-way privacy that lasts all day. The former uses a reflective film that gives a mirrored effect to the glass' external face. This blocks any view from the outside in. It also enables high levels of light to shine through the glass, so you can enjoy your privacy without having to sacrifice natural light. Frosted film is used for 24-hour, two-way privacy.

You could alternatively opt for a frosted window film that will make your glazing look like sandblasted or acid-etched glass, providing a stylish and contemporary look, as well as blocking the views from both sides of the glazing.

Window tinting for heat reduction

Excessive heat can lead to a major problem, whether in a commercial setting or in the home. If unresolved, solar energy from the sun will continually pass through glazing. This gradually raises the internal temperature until it causes discomfort. This can result in workplaces such as offices being non-conducive to well-being and productivity. 

Solar control window film bounces away some of that solar energy before it enters the property and raises the temperature. That doesn't mean that it will make your home or workplace feel unnecessarily cold, either. It only rejects any excessive heat, preventing a steady build-up. Solar control window film and glass tints are available in various finishes and grades.

Other benefits of window tinting

You can also opt for window tinting for a number of other reasons, such as safety and security, fade protection and glare reduction. Window tinting can be a nice addition, not just for windows, but also for any building with glazing, whether it be for shower screens, partitions or a glass door. There are different options available to you, each providing an immediate result with a stylish appearance.

Yes, you can take the DIY approach to installing window tint in your home. For larger windows, however, you may need a partner to help you. Of course, you can always leave window tinting in the hands of professionals. If you spend some time looking online, you'll find a company in your area just waiting to get started. A team of vastly experienced and fully qualified fitters will install your preferred window tint, providing you with the wonderful benefits that glass tinting provides.
