If there is a concern, special arrangements can be made for evening and weekend installations. We do ask that three to five feet of space be cleared in front of the window so that our crew can thoroughly clean the windows and apply the tinting.

  • Clearer and more durable adhesives, exclusive to 3M
  • Laminating and thin-film technologies that prevent premature aging
  • Use of specialized metals that maintain their transparency and effectiveness throughout the life of the tint.
