Once, glass manufacturers believed that adding film to the windows would cause early seal failure. Of course, when installing a heat absorbing film such as “automotive film”, it increases the temperature of the glass, creating early seal failure (condensation in between panes). Nowadays, only appropriate films are applied on residential windows and these films reflect or redirect the ultra violet rays and infrared back outside, the high temperature is never stuck in the glass, and the seal is not compromised.
That’s why in most cases window film application would void window warranties. However, Solar Shield’s window film manufacturers are assured they will not only warrant the film (limited lifetime) from cracking, bubbling, discoloring, delaminating, but they will also warrant the windows from glass breakage – 5 years and seal failure – 3 years. You’ll not only purchase window film, but an insurance plan for your windows as well.
