2 expert’s tips on choosing SunTek window films

Think about visual light transmission

This is very important — the amount of natural light influences your life scenarios. For example, you probably don’t need a lot of light in the TV area, — there is better to avoid annoying glare on the screens. But you might want to have enough sunlight around your dining table.

Keep in mind — the lower the percentage of light transmission, the more you can see from the outside of the house what is happening inside.

So according to your needs, you can choose the percentage of VLT (visual light transmission).

Let the licensed professionals do the tint installation

The film should be cut and glued properly. The qualified installation needs experienced hands and special equipment. In order to look perfect, window tint films should be installed without any air bubbles or accidental dust. Moreover, licensed installers provide a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty against fading and bubbling.
