STEP 1: Evaluate Your Needs

Every window film product has it’s own unique benefits so you first need to decide what your most important goals for window film are.  Don’t worry if you have more than one goal– there are many window films that solve more than one issue.  For instance, a security window film easily doubles as a UV protecting one.

STEP 2: Compare Performance Details

When you decide your main problem you’ll need to examine the performance characteristics and qualities of different films.  The best way to do this is to review spec sheets provided by the manufacturers. This will allow you to compare things like–Visible Light Transmission (VLT), efficiency, strength and other important performance characteristics you may be looking for.

STEP 3: Determine Specific Aesthetics

We know the function of window film is the most important feature but how a film looks is also important and it must be noted that certain films only come in some finishes.  If there is a specific finish that would best complement your home: reflective, virtually invisible, or bronzed this is something to consider at the beginning of your research to help refine your search criteria.

STEP 4: Request In-Home Estimate

After doing some research on the film you want for your Ogden home, you are now best equipped to call a professional, like Window Film Salt Lake City, for an in-home estimate.  From here we can answer any questions on films you came across during your research and introduce you to some your may not have discovered.  Once we have completed your window film knowledge and help you refine your goals, we will schedule an install that is convenient to you and is usually completed in one day.
