Saving energy in your home in winter?

Yes we’ll we do live in Florida, so winter comes but maybe two or three days, if we’re lucky! So for the most part it’s hot and sunny, which is great, but not if its making your home hotter, and running up your electric bill. So my friend Todd, who sells life insurance, usually cheaper than most companies out there, needed his home protected. I showed him a few samples but his mind was already made up, he wanted it nice and dark and wanted the whole house done. Sunteks syds 15 was the perfect choice, great privacy and a 79% heat block! The side by sides look very drastic but when the whole window is done it’s much more like a pair of polarized glasses for your home, the details are much clearer, the film takes away all the harsh, bright white light, and lets you see bluer blues, and greener greens. This film also blocks 99% of the UV rays which fades blinds, drapes, furniture and flooring. We’re also working on a custom stained glass film for the front door and transom window, that should be in soon! This should help Todd to save some money on his bills, just like he can help you save on your insurance, if anyone needs a quote for his services, let me know and I’ll put you in touch with him!

I was getting texts from a friend at the dealership, when can you tint my car!

My friend Tami, who is Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork had sold her car and was picking up this beautiful new Lincoln, she was texting me from the dealership wanting to know when her car could get done. We went over the different choices of films that I offer, and what she has had on pervious cars and came up with the right combination of heat block, and privacy. When Tami’s done giving therapeutic massages all day she needs to relax herself, and the drive home should be alot more pleasant now thanks to the film. Not to mention the car is super plush inside, awesome seats beautiful leather stitched interior, all things that need to be protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Thanks very much Tami for letting me work on your car, and if any one needs any of Tami’s therapeutic massages please let me know, and I’ll put you in touch with her, it would be a great gift for a husband, wife, or angry boss this Christmas season!

Another one for Jordan’s automotive!

I had this client referred to me from the owners of Jordan’s Automotive. She had some bad film on the car and needed it removed and reinstalled with a much better quality film. The back window was especially bad it was all bubbled up and very hard to see thru, not very safe either. She told me the company that installed the film would not warranty the work on the back window, which was the worst window on the car. After a few hours all the old film has been removed and the new film installed. The clarity looking out now is much better, plus she’s got all the privacy and heat protection she needs from a great film with a lifetime warranty. Big thank you to Jordan’s Automotive for passing along another referral to me!

Hot little Mazda isn’t anymore, well it still looks good

This customer found me on Google and was looking to cool off his wife’s car, he had film on his truck already and knows how it can benefit from it. We talked about the shades and pricing, and he wanted the most heat protection he could get, so we went with the CXP line which has a 56% heat block. The car looks and will feel alot different for them, he asked me to look at his truck while I was there and had some peeling issues as well as he wanted the back privacy glass a little darker, so hopefully in this next week I will have time to get to that one as well.

Office privacy needed

My customer today was in need of privacy on the main window when you walk into their business, it was like a fishbowl the customer tells me. They were looking for something with a design, beach theme that would go with the rest of the office, so we discussed using a perforated vinyl, they are great for advertising or adding a picture to deter people from seeing into areas they aren’t supposed to. After deciding on a picture to use, I got with my printer and arranged a time to print this perf, after he printed the vinyl it needed time to dry but the next day I’m able to install it! It’s sometimes difficult to give complete privacy when there are lights on both sides of the glass, but it definitely takes away from seeing straight thru, the next step is we are going to add a layer of dark film to  have just a touch more privacy, this has totally changed the view for my customers when they walk into work now, they all loved it!

Plain glass no privacy, I see what they mean fishbowl

Such a difference

Beautiful view, personalized with the company name

Old purple tint on office window

This office was looking out on his work yard, the view thru this nasty old film was horrible, it had what we call fingers that ran from the top to the bottom and was separated from the glass. I showed the customer one of the darkest film on the market, it blocks out 79% of the heat and gives almost complete privacy. The only time this film is viewable from the outside is at night with the lights on inside, as with all film you can see right in at night as if there’s nothing on the glass. When the window was done the room was darker but the view is clear and uninterrupted, the customer had walked out of the office after I removed the old film and didn’t come back in till I had the new film on the window I got a very big “WOW” he was very happy with the end results. It should help him out now with visibility and keeping that front office cooler.

Angry Jeep, looks a bit more aggressive!

When I first came in contact with this customer, he had seen me driving down the street, in my subtle yellow VW, ha. We communicated back and forth about wrapping his Jeep and what could and couldn’t be done, color choices. Wraps aren’t cheap, so while he’s getting his money together for the wrap he decided that it was getting hot in this Florida sun and maybe window film should be on his list of upgrades. So we spoke about what would be best for his concerns, heat and privacy was on the top of that list so Suntek CXP film was chosen to give the highest heat reduction and UV protection. He also was interested in the windshield having protection also so Suntek CXP 70% was picked for its clarity, superior heat block it rejects 44% of the heat! Once the Jeep was done it was instantly more aggressive looking, with the aftermarket grille and all the upgrades, this Jeep is a real head turner. I appreciate everything this customer has done referring friends and co-workers, we’ve also done estimates for his work, and I look forward to working with him in the future!

Cooling off an Airstream

I had a meeting with a local paint and bodywork owner, and we spoke about Tinting his Airstream camper. We disused his concerns about wanting privacy especially when camping and the amount of heat coming into the camper, Sunteks CXP film was chosen for its high heat protection and the privacy it will give while having crystal clear visibility. This Airstream had a considerable amount of hinges and frameless windows to cut around. When this silver bullet was done being tinted the A/C will be able to work easier and not as often to keep the camper cool and comfortable now. The corner windows were extremely difficult to shrink the film to get that curved shape but everything looks great now.

Customer tries to remove own film

These customers were great, they had some platinum film on their Honda Civic that was getting hard to see thru so she tried removing the film herself, and did a pretty good job until she got to the bottom of the rear window, that’s where it got difficult. It’s very tight in this small space, so I was called in to finish the job. After much discussion with my customer about what would be right for his needs he decided he wanted the most heat protection possible. So we spoke about Sunteks CXP film, he could now block 56% of the heat, making it alot easier to cool the vehicle using the a/c. The customer was great, he set up a tent to keep me in the shade, turned on the tunes to keep the tinter happy, a happy tinter is a good tinter. It helped out alot and it was appreciated. First task was the old film needed to be removed this is always the hardest part, all the film needs to be removed then all the remaining glue and residue. I chose to use a steamer to heat the film with moisture to soften the glue and make removing the old film alot safer on the rear defroster lines and get the film off in as close to one piece as possible. Once all the old film was removed and glass cleaned the new CXP film was installed and the heat blocking had begun. While we were there he had a Mazda miata that he also wanted done, so we took care of those windows as well. We have already discussed another vehicle that the window has film that might need to be replaced in the future, my wife and i look forward to working with them again, great people.

Not a cheaper film

On this Toyota Camry, the customer decided that the heat protection and the cost were the most important things to consider when choosing film. So we discussed using Suntek Carbon film, with his film choice he is rejecting 44% of the heat coming into his car. The film also gives a nice smoked look to the glass for privacy and will also protect his interior with 99% UV light being blocked. The Carbon film is a cheaper alternative to Sunteks CXP line, but is in no way a cheap film, the carbon film is still backed by a lifetime warranty.
