3M Residential Warranty

3M Residential Warranty Explained

Tim Traxler3M

Are you interested in purchasing 3M window film for your home? If so, your film is protected by a comprehensive 3M residential warranty. We’re often asked what a 3M residential warranty entails, so before purchasing, we’d like to tell you a bit about what that means.

Coverage Depends on the Type of Film

3M window film is covered by either a lifetime or set-year warranty. Films with a 3M lifetime warranty are protected against bubbling, cracking, peeling, discoloration, glass breakage or seal failure as long as you live in or own the house.

Films covered by a set-year warranty are protected against the same faults but only for 2 or 5 years. Examples include Exterior or Fasara films.

How Long is My Film Covered For?

Each 3M window film series has a specific set of functions and therefore comes with a unique warranty agreement. Below, you’ll find the length of each film’s specific 3M warranty.

  • Sun Control (Residential): Lifetime
  • Sun Control – Night Vision (Residential): Lifetime
  • Sun Control – Prestige (Residential): Lifetime
  • Low-E (Residential & Commercial): 5 Years
  • Exterior (Residential & Commercial): 2 Years
  • Safety/Security (Residential): Lifetime
  • Safety/Security – Ultra Night Vision (Residential): Lifetime
  • Safety/Security – Ultra Prestige (Residential): Lifetime
  • Fasara™ (Residential & Commercial): 5 Years
  • Scotchcal™ (Residential & Commercial): 5 Years

Certain exclusions may apply, but our window film experts will explain warranty details during your free consultation and upon request.

Removal and Reinstallation Are Included

If your 3M film begins to wear under warranty, your window film installer is responsible for replacing the damaged film at no cost to you. Glass failure due to thermal shock fracture is covered under warranty for up to 5 years.  Note that the installer is entitled to inspect the damage before replacing the film and/or glass.

To keep your film in tip-top shape, we suggest regularly cleaning your windows. You can learn how to do that here.
