Consider Window Film Before Spending Big Bucks on New Windows

Energy from the sun sustains all life on earth. But in much of Florida, too much sun can cause critical problems.

Solar heat gain and radiant heat loss thru windows account for 1/3 of Florida’s home energy costs. 

To combat suffering caused by inefficient windows and glass doors, many Florida homeowners shovel out huge amounts of money to replace them.

As an authorized Vista window film dealer, High Impact Glass Solutions offers technically advanced window films that will match the energy savings of those high-dollar replacement windows AND for much less cost! 

Film stops UV harm and glaring heat!   

Vista window films reflect 99.9% of UV rays, reduce nearly 85% of the dreaded heat, and can lower your monthly cooling bills by 30%!

Choosing Vista makes a lot of “cents” already!

When comparing costs, our customers have found that their Vista window film installation costs a fraction of what replacement windows would and easily found a tint shade to fall in love with. 

We are window tinting Tampa homes with films that  are all independently tested and NFRC certified, and governed by the same rules as new windows for performance.

Keep your crystal clear views, gain all the benefits you would expect from replacement windows and receive a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty instead of 15-20 years.

Partially installed with Vista sun control window film and the difference was nothing short of amazing.

The owners of this beautiful home with a sweeping view of the golf course achieved all their needs without having to spend BIG BUCKS on buying replacement windows!

High Impact Glass Solutions #1 Referred Window Tinting Company Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota

Consumers expect peak performance from window film installations. Whether it’s to eliminate heat, glare, UV rays or add safety and security, customers deserve nothing less than optimum results. 

But what about the performance of the company you just hired?

Do they want to just “get the job done” and limit your impression to an acceptable film installation? Or will they go beyond the boundaries of simply tinting your windows?

How about an experience that starts from the time your window tinting contractor meets you and ends with much more than merely a job well done. This is just a glimpse of what you can expect from High Impact Glass Solutions. 

We began window tinting Tampa Bay area homes and businesses over a decade ago. Our growth never relied on marketing ourselves as the best thing since buttered bread but rather how we treat YOU, our customers, your property, and all the many extra considerations we offer. The High Impact Glass Solutions experience is what truly sets us apart and has earned us such an outstanding reputation.  

Whether installing window film in homes, businesses, or yachts, strict guidelines are always followed. I personally train my installers to be the “Navy Seals” of window tinting.

The extra ingredient of pride is in every installation!

  • Energy audits and evaluations are extensive and precise.
  • Film recommendations are made from calculations based on your type of glass and manufacturer data.
  • Window dressings are meticulously protected during the process.
  • Tape marks the location where we’ve moved furniture so that it is replaced exactly to its original spot.
  • Booties are put on every time we enter and taken off every time we leave. New booties will be put on for each and every entrance.
  • Our own specialty designed tools and equipment facilitate how effortlessly we can bring all needed items in one trip.  This alone serves as a huge advantage with less door openings that mitigates loss of interior cool air.

To save time many so called “we are the best” window tinting companies simply cattle-drive through installations. Due to lack of skill they will often choose to skip tedious procedures altogether, leaving customers with sub-par work. Time and time again, we are called to remove film from windows because it was not compatible with the glass… or simply haphazardly applied.

Fact is, we’re perfectionists. Compared to other companies that take the fast food approach, we’re considered fine dining where every detail of both the windows AND our customers is supremely important.

We do share one common aspect with our competition: our evaluations are just as free as theirs. But rest assured, we include much more helpful advise, invest more listening to your objectives,  and we include free demonstrations of how our signature films will look and perform on your glass.

Ulele is a one-of-a-kind restaurant presented in an exquisite renovated historic building at Tampa’s Riverwalk. With a menu replete with culinary selections and an outrageous atmosphere, Ulele was deliciously picture perfect….with one exception.

The performance of old outdated film on the windows and doors had begun to fail badly. Heat and glare were pouring inside the restaurant.

It was not unusual to see customers wearing sunglasses! 


To restore the luster and inviting ambiance that was so reticent of the Ulele dining experience, we replaced the old film with our newest solar control film.

The newer technology film made a profound difference:

  • Low exterior reflectivity made zero impact on the exterior glass
  • Natural light passed through windows with remarkable glare reduction
  • Sun -generated hot spots were eliminated enabling patrons and staff to enjoy comfortable consistent temperatures throughout the restaurant
  • Ulele’s building became more energy-efficient with lower electric bills


Mission accomplished!

We added today’s window film technology to Ulele’s glass and improved the look and comfort without compromising it’s historic appearance.

Whether it’s new construction or vintage built, architectural differences never effect the successful outcome of our window tinting Tampa buildings.

If it’s glass, we can film it!
