As experts in the field, we understand that choosing the right window film for your home can be a decision that requires careful consideration. To make the process easier for you, we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions about residential window films.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. What are building window films and how do they work?
    Residential window films are thin, transparent layers that are applied to windows for various purposes. They are designed to control the amount of sunlight entering your home, reduce glare, and improve privacy. These films usually consist of polyester layers coated with special adhesives, UV inhibitors and scratch-resistant coatings. They work by reflecting or absorbing solar energy, providing you with a more comfortable and energy-efficient living space.

  2. What are the benefits of installing building window membranes?

    Window films offer a multitude of advantages, including:
  • Reduce heat and glare: By blocking a significant amount of solar heat and reducing reflection, window films create a more comfortable indoor environment.
  • UV protection: Window films block up to 99% of harmful UV rays, protecting your furniture, flooring and valuables from fading and sun damage.

  • Energy efficiency: By reducing the need for air conditioning, window membranes contribute to lower energy consumption and, consequently, lower utility bills.

  • Enhanced privacy: Some movies can enhance privacy during the day without sacrificing natural light, offering a perfect balance between openness and isolation.

  1. Can I install residential window films myself?
    While DIY installation is possible for some window films, we highly recommend professional installation for optimal results. Our skilled technicians at DUO-BOND are trained to ensure a flawless fit, minimizing the risk of bubbles, wrinkles or uneven adhesion. Professional installation also often comes with a warranty, providing you with a quiet spirit.

  2. Do window films block the view from inside or outside?
    No, quality building window membranes are designed to be virtually invisible, allowing unobstructed views from both the inside and outside, depending on what you choose. Our advanced technology ensures that you can enjoy the benefits of window membranes without compromising the aesthetics of your home.
  1. How do I clean and maintain window films? The maintenance of window membranes is simple. Use a mild, non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth or sponge for cleaning. Avoid using harsh chemicals, as they can damage the film. Regular cleaning helps maintain the clarity and longevity of the window film.

  2. Can window films be removed?
    Yes, window films can be removed if necessary. Professional removal is recommended to avoid damage to the glass or frame. Our technicians use specialized tools and techniques to ensure a clean and efficient removal process.
