All American Horror Story

     As they walked into their home, the sight shocked them to their inner being.  It did not happen over night, but over time.  Let’s start from the beginning, shall we?  The everyday family moved into their home not too long ago and decided window film was “not for them.”  Blinds and curtains seemed more sensible to their budget and any other option was thrown out the window.  Anytime that it was sunny outside, which was often since Denver has close to 300 sunny days a year, the family would lift the curtains and open the blinds to let natural light into their home.  What they didn’t realize was that the sun’s harmful UV rays were allowed into their home as well.  Gradually, with each sunny day, the family’s hardwood floors, furniture and beautiful paintings were fading right before their eyes.  It was not until Halloween, when they walked through the door and noticed how summer’s scorching days harmed their most prized possessions.  “How in the world can we keep our view, allow sunlight into our home AND block out the harmful UV rays?” thought the everyday family. 

     After some investigating and thorough research, the family realized that window film might just be the option for them after all.  With this newly found information, their next step was to do an internet search of what companies offered window tinting in the Denver Metro area. Since they had already suffered in their home from constant heat and glare, they wanted to make the right choice. All American Window Tinting popped up on their internet search and they seemed reputable and knowledgeable.  They visited their website and saw all their incredible work.  When they called the office, the staff worked with the family and scheduled a free estimate.  Nothing spooky or creepy about this company, rather the opposite.

Window Film vs. Blinds/Curtains

It is common to believe that purchasing curtains, blinds or shades for residential or commercial windows is the most effective way of cutting down costs.  While this can be true, there are other aspects that are neglected in order to achieve a low budget.  When interior shades are lowered to control glare and heat from the sun, the transmittance of daylight is inhibited.  This can in turn increase your monthly energy bill if you have to supplement artificial lighting when sunlight can be utilized.  Although blinds and/or curtains can offer privacy there are films that can offer privacy during the day; however it is important to note that anytime light can enter through a window film during the daytime it will allow light to pass the opposite direction at night.  If nighttime privacy is a concern, there are decorative films such as rain glass film or white frost that will allow minimal light to pass through the day while giving privacy at night.  Blinds and curtains tend to trap heat between the window and blinds/curtains.  The sun's heat is still entering the home, heating rooms.  Window film acts in two ways; it will increase the amount of energy that can be reflected away from the glass and will absorb more of solar energy that could not be reflected.  With these two factors presents, the amount of solar energy entering your home or business is decreased. In addition, window film is designed to filter the harmful UV rays that will enter your home, whereas blinds and curtains can not do so.  These harmful UV rays are a contributing factor to sun fading and are damaging to the skin.  The products that we carry at All American Window Tinting, Inc., are very affordable and the products we carry vary to meet different needs.  The window film we offer can address issues of daytime privacy, heat reduction, glare reduction, sun-fading reduction or some of these issues combined.
