Architectural window film can solve an array of issues for homeowners. From excessive heat gain and glare to energy savings and added security. However, how long will window film last and continue to maintain its performance?

Manufacturer’s Warranty

If you select a quality, professionally installed window film from a reputable manufacturer like Madico it will often come with a lifetime warranty for as long as you own your home. The warranty covers issues from peeling and bubbling to cracking and demetallization. This means that you can experience the benefits of your home’s window film for decades!

New Home but Old Film?

However, if you are buying a home that already has film on its windows it can be beneficial to consult with a professional film installer to evaluate the integrity of the film. As a new owner of the home, it’s important to learn if the film used on the windows is a quality, professionally installed product or an inferior DIY product. In addition, film installed on windows that receive direct sunlight, such as skylights, may need to be replaced more frequently than other windows in a home.

Consult a Professional Installer

Madico’s professional film installers can provide you with valuable information on your window and film performance. Before investing in costly window treatments that obscure your view, locate a film dealer near you to see if your film may need to be replaced in order to achieve the performance you desire.
