Reduce Fading with Window Film

Save Your Furnishings From Fading With UV Blocking Window Film.

Have you ever moved a piece of furniture, only to be shocked by how much the surrounding
carpet or flooring has faded around it? Have you ever wished there was a way to keep your
upholstery and rugs from fading in the strong Colorado sun?

As every Coloradan knows, the sun is one of the best attributes of our fair state. But the sun’s
UV rays are dangerous, not just to our skin and eyes, but to our home furnishings as well.

Residential window tinting is a fantastic option to consider.

If you’ve ever done any type of art, you probably know that paints such as watercolors and oils, as well as pastels, are rated by their light-fastness. That rating refers to just how resistant they are to fading over time. And many homeowners do have their valuable artwork protected under special glass which can protect it from fading. But, there are many types of artwork that do not go under glass, like oils. How can you protect them?

Perhaps you don’t have the Mona Lisa or a Van Gogh hanging in your home. Perhaps your only artwork consists of the pieces your kids did in grade school. However, it would still be terrific to ensure that those pieces last without fading.

So whether you have costly furnishings or artwork in your home, or if you simply don’t like the idea of having to replace your things because they’ve become ruined by the sun—residential window tinting is the best possible solution.

Here’s why.

It’s green, it’s cost effective, it’s virtually imperceptible on your windows—and it had many other benefits other than just protection from UV rays.

Our energy saving window films will block up to 99% of the sun’s ultra violet rays from entering your home via your windows and glass doors. Of course, there are other aspects in the sun’s rays which contribute to fading as well, but the UV rays account for approximately 40 percent.

So along with saving you money, residential window films can at least slow down the deterioration of your furnishings and artworks. Not to mention that they can also keep your skin from absorbing UV rays in a place you might never have considered needing protection—your
home.
