Got Hot Spots in Your Home?

Home Window tinting denver

Make your home more comfortable with window tint.

Do you find that one room in your home or office is too cold or too hot and another room is just the opposite? If you’re struggling with this problem, then you have what are called hot spots in your home. This can be caused by different things and there can be different solutions to this problem. Sometimes it can take multiple solutions to solve the problem, depending on what’s causing these hot spots.

Today let’s focus on the hot spots that are caused by direct sunlight coming into your home and making one area or room too hot while the rest of your house is either too cold because of the A/C running or pretty comfortable. What is a solution for this situation?

Home Window Tint

Having window tint installed on your home’s windows can greatly reduce these hot spots. Window tint will prevent a percentage of the heat coming from the sun, from entering through your windows and causing the problem area of your home to get too hot.

There are several different window films to choose from, depending on what you would like to accomplish. If you have a severe problem we have window tint that can block up 75% of the heat. If your problem is not so severe, we have window films that will block only about 35% of the heat. Our window tints range from totally see through all the way to being completely mirrored.

Not only will window tint help reduce hot spots but it will help you save money because your A/C won’t be running as much.

If you live in the Denver area and would like a free in-home consultation, please give us a call at 303-278-3456. We look forward to hearing from you!

Spruce Up Your Patio For Spring

With our patio shades you can still keep your view!

With the weather we’ve been having here in Colorado you might mistaken it for being spring. It’s hard to believe it’s only the end of February. That being said I think all of us have spring on our minds. There’s just something about spring that makes you want to roll up your sleeves and get cleaning! Well at least that’s what it does to me. So here are some great ways to get your patio ready for spring.

One of the most inviting things you can do to your patio is clean it. I mean who wants to sit on a chair full of cobwebs, or put your drink on a dusty coffee table? That doesn’t sound very cozy.

Another thing you can do is get some flowers, now it might be a little early to do that now, but start thinking about what type of flowers you want and where you will put them. Having flowers on your patio will give it a more relaxing feel. You can also add a fire pit to your patio or deck, then you can use it on evening that are cooler. If you don’t have one of these, you can pick them up pretty cheap and many different home retailers.

Another great idea for your patio is to add solar shades. These shades have many advantages, including cutting down on glare, blocking the sun and not the view. They can even keep the bugs out with Insolroll’s exclusive track system that zips you into your patio.

With all these idea’s you can make your patio into an outdoors living space this year!

Adding Home Window Tint To Your Remodeling Project

Reduce glare with home window tinting Denver.According to one mortgage loan company, U.S. homeowners took out an estimated $13.3 billion in cash-out loan refinancing during the second quarter of last year, the most in nearly seven years. A lot of that money is going towards remodeling projects.

The average remodel project ranges from $150,000 to $300,000 and a complete tear down and rebuild ranges from $850,000 to $1.2 million. More and more people are opting to do extensive remodeling on their existing house rather than move into a newer home. This is because they save money on moving expenses, they’re usually keeping their property taxes lower, their kids stay in the same school district, etc.

One of the more expensive part of remodeling quite often is getting new windows. However, did you know that adding window film to existing windows is one of the best, cheapest and easiest ways to improve your windows and lower your energy bills?

Vista Window Films Superior Scratch-Resistant Coatings

Help stop fading with home window tinting Denver.In our last posting we discussed the Clear Distortion Free adhesive mounting system that Vista uses and why it’s the best on the market. Today we’ll talk about the superior scratch-resistant coating Vista window films uses.

The proprietary scratch-resistant coating that Solutia, the parent company of Vista, developed back in 1984 is still considered a superior in the window film industry.

The hard surface coating is formed using acrylics and an ultraviolet curing system. This provides a long lasting durable surface that stands up to abrasions and cleaning.

Testing the Scratch-Resistant Coating

Typically scratch-resistant coatings are commonly tested in two ways. The first way is with steel wool (0000 grade), this is a quick way to test how scratch-resistant it is. Solutia’s scratch-resistant coating can be vigorously wiped with steel wool without leaving any visible scratches.

The second test, ASTM D 1044 utilizes a Tabor Abrader. To read more about what this test looks for you can go to www.astm.org. The industry standard uses a fairly soft CS 10F wheel, 500 gm weights on the wheel, and 100 cycles. This test does not impact Solutia’s coating enough to give us the measurement definition we desire. Solutia has found it necessary to use a much harder CS TS wheel with 1000 gm weights for 100 cycles in our process control to measure any slight variation. Even with this more stringent test there is little change in Solutia’s product.
