What are the advantages to residential window tinting?

Residential window tinting has a number of advantages. For starters, home window tint film can help keep your home cool while still allowing you to bask in the natural light you love. It also guards your family from the dangers of sun exposure and protects your furniture and carpet from sun damage and fading. Residential window film can:

  • Reduce up to 78% of the sun’s heat 
  • Lead to 50% savings on cooling costs 
  • Block up to 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays
  • Significantly reduce glare
  • Increase privacy
  • Increase the durability of glass, making it harder for intruders to get into your home 

How quickly can Superior Window Solutions install my home window tint film?

It takes us about 15 minutes to install residential window tinting on a standard glass door. This means we can complete most homes in one afternoon.  But there are a few steps that take place before the day we show up to install your residential window film. 


The first step in the process is an evaluation of your needs.  We’ll come out to your home to measure the square footage of glass in your home and talk to you about what kind of home window tinting will best suit your lifestyle and budget. If the products you choose are in stock (and the most popular ones likely will be), we should be able to get you on the calendar within a day or two.  If we need to order your materials, it may take a couple of days longer. 


Please let us know of any tight deadlines, or if you plan to install the privacy window film yourself. We’re here to accommodate you and to make this process as easy as possible.  


Do I need to be home during the installation process for window film?

Yes, you do need to be home during the window film installation process. This is important. We want you to see the items and verify that they are what you ordered before we begin installing the window film in your home. Further, we may have minor questions or concerns to discuss with you throughout the process.

Do you charge for a consultation?

No, at Superior Window Solutions, we don’t believe in charging clients just for a consultation. Give us a call, and we will schedule an appointment to come out and evaluate your home. Then, we’ll email a bid to you for the project with no obligation to buy. 

Can I view photos of your finished projects? 

Of course.  You can see photos of our completed San Diego residential and commercial window film installation projects by visiting our website and taking a look at our “Gallery” page. There, you’ll see a variety of “before” and “after” pictures.

Do you only offer residential window tinting services?

No, at Superior Window Solutions in San Diego, we offer privacy window film and UV protection window film installation for commercial properties, residential homes, and automobiles.

Will window film obstruct my view?

No, window film won’t obstruct your view. In fact, quite the opposite. Most of our clients are shocked by how much more they can see out their windows when they use residential window tinting to reduce glare.  Window tinting technology has advanced tremendously in recent years, and it’s now possible to reduce glare, lower energy costs, protect your furnishings, and still enjoy the views outside your windows. Even with our darkest privacy film, you’d be surprised by how much you can see out your windows, even when no one else can see in.
