Today I was installing film on my friend Fran’s home, she’s the market manager at PNC Mortgage, she’s the one to call if you need a mortgage or refi. She has a beautiful home with a very open entry way, and an office that was extremely hot, heating the rest of the home. So when I stopped by to give her and her husband an estimate we went over many samples and settled on Suntek syds 15 for its 79% block of the heat from entering the home. The pictures don’t do justice today as it was a little cloudy our but the numbers don’t lie, after installing the film and only a few minutes later, taking the temp on the floor it already went down 4°! That’s pretty substantial! I still need to go back and install a clear film to protect it from the dogs greeting their guests! Big thanks to Fran and it anyone can use her services please let me know!
I had tinted this gentleman’s car a few months ago and he recently purchased a beautiful 06 Corvette and it desperately needed tinted glass. He was worried about getting the car done because the glass is very curved and he wanted the back window done in one piece, I assured him he chose the right place. We went over his film choices and he mentioned that when he was driving the corvette back from after purchasing it, he could tell the difference in the amount of heat coming in the windows compared to his other car, so he knew exactly what he wanted. He chose Suntek CXP line, blocking 53 and 56% of the heat for the legal limits in FL. All done and the car looks very classy, beautiful car with beautiful smoked glass, all with a lifetime warranty, and he never had to leave home! Mobile service for swfl!
Today was full of BNI goodness, a meeting in the morning and then tinted two of my referral partners cars after that. BNI is a group I joined where Members meet every week to discuss business and support each other’s business by sharing referrals in an effort for everyone to grow. I installed Suntek CXP 35 film on the front two doors of my friend Liz’s Hyundai, for a 53% heat block. She has been getting blasted by the sun since she purchased her new car. I had fixed all the old purple, bad film that was on her husbands truck about a month ago, and now it was time for her windows to get done. We originally planned to do the install at her office, at SunTrust Bank in Estero, but that wasn’t feasible so I was able to do it this morning which worked out great for both of us, time wise, she needed to get to work and help everyone with their checking and savings accounts and all their lending needs. BRACE YOURSELF! Next up was my friend Mike from Germain Arena, he’s the man that can get you group tickets and suites at Germain for the Everblades and all upcoming events. He told me that he couldn’t take the heat anymore it was time to tint his car! So today was the day, he also chose the CXP line for its great heat block and clear visibility looking thru the film. Both cars looked great once they were done and now they have the privacy and heat protection that they desperately needed! Let me know if anyone can use any of their services and I will put you in touch with them.
I’ve known the owners of Jordan’s Automotive for quite a few months now. A great family owned and operated automotive repair/maintenance business in Ft Myers and I’ve had the pleasure of working with them for their customers Tinting needs and some of their own familys film needs. But today they needed the film on the front of the business removed and reinstalled, the sun had really beaten it up over the years, and it was time to go. I needed tires on my car as, so while they did the install of them I did the install of the film. The film the owners chose will block 79% of the heat from their waiting room and workshop, even on a gloomy day like today it made a big difference. This is one of the darker films yet the visibility looking out is crystal clear. The drive to the next job was great the new tires are a much needed improvement, big thanks to Jordan’s Automotive for taking care of my car, they are the only mechanic I trust to touch my car!
I installed film on this customers car months ago, and he recently got a different car that was in desperate need of tinted glass. So he got in touch with me and also asked about getting his friends truck done. I was able to do both on the same day and pass along a little savings as he was a repeat customer and I was able to do both cars at the same time. That eclipse back window was very difficult, curved in multiple ways, it took alot of shrinking to get the film to take shape, but the end result looks great. Sunteks carbon film is some of the best film you can get for the money, great visibility and heat block. You’d be bananas not to want your windows tinted in the Florida winters, or our extended summers. Big thanks to my repeat customers, I appreciate you coming back!
I have been super busy, I haven’t had time to sit down and write about anything lately. So I’m taking a minute to write about one of last week’s jobs. This customer contacted me about getting his house tinted, he’s had his previous homes tinted before and already knows the benefits of tinted glass. I had given him an estimate for the whole home, he wanted some rooms darker than the others because of the heat that they were enduring. So I showed him multiple samples and went over pricing with him and gave a quote. He had said he was going to get a few other quotes and I told him to get back with me whenever I could help him. He called a few weeks later ready to proceed with the install. Most of the house Sunteks syds 25 was used and on the hottest areas of the house used syds 15 for its very high heat block. In talking with the customer some of the other estimates he had gotten ranged from a few hundred more, up to twice as much! The customer was very happy with the price and the install and the film made a huge difference!
Syds 15 half done looks drastic but when it’s all done…
Completed window looks beautiful and clear
Mitred window half done with syds 25
Completed window can’t even tell it’s on there!
Syds 15 half done
Completed room like looking thru polarized glasses
I’ve done quite a few cars for this customer and his family and now he’s got a new Kia Optima that is in desperate need of privacy and heat protection. So he made one call and we set up a time that would work with his schedule and Sunday was the best day for him, I had no problem being there early to let him enjoy the rest of his weekend with his family. He wanted the best film like I installed on his last car, so we used the CXP line from Suntek to give him a 56% heat blockage, plus some added privacy. He should be enjoying the difference already!
I have a customer that wants his modified widebody Mazda miata wrapped in blue chrome, he has one of the hardest cars with one of the most difficult vinyls to work with and it’s the most expensive vinyl out right now. If you overheat it, it turns white, if you overstretch it, it turns white, just doing the mirrors on my wife’s car was difficult enough I don’t think it’s gonna stretch the way I need it to. It probably took an hour per mirror to do, and I had to rip it off in the end. Vinyl has its limits as to what it can do as far as stretching, it can only go so far, I’m gonna keep practicing and take more time to work with this material.
I was referred to this customer by a previous customer and friend. Her miata was hot, and not in a good way. The customer was finding it difficult to cool the car off, clear glass and a convertible top, I can imagine. So I spoke to her about the differences in the films and she decided on my CXP Suntek line which keeps out 53 and 56% of the heat, quite a bit better than no protection at all. Her husband was able to bring the car to his work and I met him up in the early morning to take care of them. It should make a big difference in the car.
I installed the film on this car about a couple weeks ago, I think it was the windiest day of the year, perfect for making tint kites. I’m a mobile service business so I’m out in the elements, Tinting glass, fighting mother nature in epic battles, some days, most days I get the point this day she got me. The gust from above came and grabbed my film as I was installing it, I was so focused on getting a pet hair out that the film had caught, that I didn’t see the small crease that had happened. I told the customer the usual, give it a couple days to dry and it should look good. Well a week later she called and said there was a line in the film, I checked her schedule against mine and got out there a couple days later to fix the window, no charge to her, she was happy to get it fixed, I should have spotted it first, but sometimes that’s what happens when your fighting dirty with Mother nature and she was being viscous that day!
