I got a call from Galaxy Fireworks on Palm Beach Blvd and the front counter register area was getting blasted by the heat and sun. They needed something done badly, I took a reading on the floor it was 104°! The owner of the store had a few options to choose from but ultimately decided on the one way mirror film that blocks up to 84% of the heat! One the window was done and I was cleaned up I took another testing on the floor, it went down 14°! down to 90° that’s awesome! Hopefully this is the help that they were looking for, I know I felt cooler when I was done working.
Just completed another car for Jordan’s Automotive. And it’s been busy, busy, A mustang for a new driver, and he needs a little protection from the sun and heat in these horrible Florida winters. It’s going to get worse in the summer months and all my customers lately have been feeling the heat, from the Kia Forte, to the Dodge Charger and the Ford pickup, all the cars are now benefiting from more privacy and much better heat rejection. Big thanks to everyone at Jordan’s, they checked out my tires while I was working on the mustang and got me back on the road again! It really feels like family when you walk in there!
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!
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 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

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 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.
Another busy week, a couple houses some vehicles, Dog rescue with a friend, RV Tinting, carpet and runner for a customers coach and more meetings and estimates! It’s feeling good to stay so busy, hopefully it will keep on going. Normally this time of year is slower with kids going back to school, but we have been very steady, and we recently got a nice lead from a local blind company, which we will be installing in the next week. Big thanks to everyone that helped me this week! Couldn’t have done it without you. Stay tuned for the most current pictures, thanks!
It’s been a very busy week, I’m so happy that all of these new customers have been hearing about my company thru word of mouth, off of Google and seeing me driving around to and from jobs, like repeat customers with day old 2017 suburbans that needed their interiors and children saved from harmful heat and UV, or brand new Kias, recommended by the dealership to give me a call! And another repeat customer that got their corvette lights all blacked out, the car looked amazing when it was done. Also got to make another custom RV carpet, and all the new great people I get to talk to and share my knowledge with. I’d like to thank everyone for sharing all of my work, you will never know what it means to me, but it’s alot!
Just did this house over the weekend, and the back room just wasn’t dark enough for my customer. They got in touch with me Sunday and I was able move some things around to be able to get to them first thing. It’s just one window, but that’s no worry to me, keeping my customers happy, coming back and spreading the word about my company is a great help. I was happy to get down to put a darker, higher heat reduction piece of film on their window for them.
