Window tinting stop money from going out the window


Put in simpler terms, which area can be improved so that we stop throwing hard earned money  out of the the window?

Heat Reducing Window Tint Great Escape For Tampa

Intense heat in TampaTampa is HOT! Outside, you’ll need to have water handy and shade trees wouldn’t hurt.

When you’re inside, there’s plenty of water but shady trees are hard to come by. So what’s the best survival plan to escape sun-filled heated rooms and energy bills that are spiraling out of control?

You don’t need Houdini to come up with a great escape because there’s no magical formula here folks. All it requires is experience, knowledge, and passion….yes, passion.

The great escape from living with discomfort and ridiculously high electric bills is found with….US!

We offer our 13+ years of window tinting Tampa homes and businesses with cool, solid, “you can count on” solutions. The truth is, any window tinting company can slap film on your windows.

Fortunately, you’ll find our approach quite different:

  • Our initial evaluation of your glass types and non-conspicuous areas for potential loss of interior cool air is a factual analysis. It helps us to deliver the best cost-saving strategy conformed to your particular needs. We don’t use the traditional “one size fits all” plan.
  • Instead of “selling” you window film, we educate you about the benefits of different films so that you can make an informed decision based on what’s best for you….not what’s best for us.
  • We take the time to be detailed, rather than pushy, when demonstrating the performance of the films that offer your glass types the best results.

You can compare the view…. and see what the films do!

You’ll happily see that we treat your home  differently too:

  • Besides wearing booties and laying down protective tarps, we remove window treatments and mark where  pictures, tables, and every piece of furniture belongs with tape.
  • When the installation is complete, all your furnishings are returned to exactly where they were when we first arrived and  window treatments are put back up with precision.
  • Removable metal bars that certain windows have are individually numbered so that the bars are put back in the same fashion that they were constructed.
  • If during the installation we notice something related to your windows that is improperly working or problematic, we’ll bring this to your attention and if within our scope,  we will offer to replace or make the repair.

Protecting Window Dressings During Film Installation
We are experts at protecting the most elegant window treatments.

After the installation:
There’s one stipulation that we’re passionate about when your installation is complete….your total satisfaction, so there’s  no need for any more “bullet points”. It is worth mentioning however, our business mantra never changes. It is solely for our window film applications to improve the comfort in your home or business. Our expectation is to give you more than just satisfaction. We want our work and our time together to leave you inspired.

Window film is window film. We have film for every need, for every budget. The film will absolutely cool down your interior and lower energy bills. BUT our process and “the experience” is not typical.

No one, and I mean no one, can match ours.

A call for our complimentary evaluation is the first step in finding your own great escape.

Dual-Reflective Solar Film Rejects Heat in St. Pete Distillery

13719673_1249620281715706_8493246561282035185_o

Kozuba & Sons Distillery opened its doors recently to bring distinctive spirits to Midtown St. Pete. Being new to the area and not accustomed to our intense weather, much to their surprise, the sun and heat brought distinctive discomfort to their distillery.


Until they called us!

We are “film specialists” window tinting Tampa and St. Petersburg businesses.  Our company has prospered by helping other businesses prosper. Providing increased energy savings for owners and decreasing heat in their workplaces with our window film applications opens the doors, literally, to positive results.

Sun blasting through the distillery’s unprotected windows had adverse effects. For one, the heat created an undesirable environment for the family while working. The discomfort was also a deterrent for patrons to stop in and enjoy the tastings from their array of whiskey, bourbon and vodka…Mmmm, uniquely and specially made by Mr. Kozuba and his sons, all of which by the way, can be purchased from their attached retail store.

Undoubtedly, the distillery was a great addition to the Ware House Arts District in St. Petersburg.

Undoubtedly, our dual-reflective solar control film was a great addition to the distillery.

As the film installation progressed, the distillery became noticeably cooler and beads of sweat turned into sparkling (pardon the pun) smiles. The film’s  highly reflective outside layer provided high solar heat rejection. With a less reflective color layer on the inside, the windows still allowed natural light to flow through and views were not restricted.

Great craft distillery! Great results with our window film!

The Kazuba & Sons Distillery looks and feels as good as their hand-crafted spirits taste! CHEERS!

Less Heat More Cool Comfort Commercial Building Clearwater

The Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa was experiencing  “hot spots and glare” issues.

index

We have over 16 years of window tinting Tampa’s commercial and government building sector. Our initial energy audit is a crucial step in our evaluation to recommend the best film in any given building for comfort, safety, energy savings, tax savings, and insurance incentives.

The management at the Hyatt Regency continues to feel comfortable with our expertise. Likewise, we continue to deliver cost-saving strategies to restrain rising energy costs while keeping their employees and guests safe and comfortable.

This picture of a half tinted window says it all. We applied Panorama Ceramic CX35  film on the left panes. With less heat penetrating through the filmed glass, glare is noticeably reduced, and after windows were totally filmed, comfort was greatly increased.

Thanks to the performance of our ceramic window film,  all  “hot spots” are now located  in the Spa!

 

Our recommendation to apply Panorama Ceramic CX35  proved to be the ideal film choice.  Since only a partial area of the building’s side was being filmed, our goal was two-fold. One, install film with the ability to reject extreme heat and two, the film needed to be invisible for aesthetic appeal. Panorama Ceramic CX35 met both goals perfectly!

As with all of our window tinting installations, performance never disappoints. With solar heat and rays blocked, the Hyatt continues to see reduced cooling costs by up to 30% and temperature consistency from one area to another securing overall comfort. Additionally, our solar films block up to 99% of harmful UV rays. From this benefit, the Hyatt’s furnishings have a longer lifespan with less risk of fading.

Think about the “fade-resistant” performance for a minute.  Every one of us has some amount of furniture and we all walk on some type of flooring. Can you imagine the multitude of furnishings that goes into this beach resort with 250 guest suites, restaurants, conference rooms, spas, etc.? Prolonging the need to replace the furnishings alone dramatically effects their annual expenses.

Add to the sonario their additional energy savings and it becomes apparent why having the best window film on the Hyatt Regency’s glass is an essential strategy for a top-performing environment.

Increasing heat problems and rising costs to energy budgets are common problems shared throughout the commercial sector. Call for our complimentary evaluation and window film recommendation tailored to fit your building’s needs.
