A Professional Touch: Preparation and Window Film Installation

Our experienced team ensures a smooth installation process. First, we prepare the windows by cleaning them.  Before the film is applied, the windows need to be thoroughly cleaned. This step is vital as any dirt or debris on the window surface can interfere with the film’s adhesion, resulting in a less than perfect finish. Specialized cleaning solutions may be used to make sure the windows are as clean as possible. 

From there, installers cut the film to the exact measurements of the window. Once cut, the film is applied to the window surface using a specific technique to prevent air bubbles. This usually involves removing the backing of the film to expose the adhesive side, carefully applying it to the glass, and using a squeegee or similar tool to smooth out the film and remove any bubbles.

After the film is applied, any excess is trimmed off, and the edges are sealed. The installer will go over the film one more time to ensure it is smooth and adhered properly without any bubbles or creases.

PA Window Tint’s installers are meticulous and dedicated, and we ensure that every step of the process is handled with utmost care and precision.

After Installation: Long-lasting Security and Peace of Mind

After the film is installed, it needs time to dry and cure. This process can take a few days to a few weeks, depending on the type of film and the climate conditions. During this time, tiny bubbles or a cloudy appearance may be visible; however, this is normal. You can expect the bubbles to disappear once the film is fully cured.

Once the installation is finished, and the drying and curing process is complete, the benefits of security window films begin to shine through. They add a protective layer to your windows, making them resistant to break-ins, natural disasters, and accidents. This article by the International Window Film Association gives a detailed account of how security films enhance the safety of your property.
