Decorative Film Frequently Asked Questions
What is window film?
Window Film is a low-cost, high-return energy conservation measure made of micro-thin layers of film combined with high performance coatings that bond to the glass surface.
Is window film disruptive to install?
Most windows can be filmed in 15 minutes with minimal or no disruption to building occupants.
Does the film go on the outside or the inside?
Inside, to protect it from the weather.
Will window film darken the interior of my home?
No. Vista Window Film will maintain the natural colors of your interior spaces. With less need for draperies, curtains, blinds, and shades, rooms may actually brighten significantly.
How do you clean the windows?
You may clean them as usual, though we recommend against using any abrasive cleaners or sharp tools that might scratch the film. Due to the polyester coating, a soft, clean damp cloth will often wipe off most things, but for anything else, adding a capful of vinegar and a few drops of dish soap to some water should take care of it.
Will the film scratch?
All of our films have the highest quality scratch-resistant coatings, but sharp metal objects could scratch the film.
Will the film change my view?
Yes, the film can actually enhance your view by reducing the glare, or cover up an unwanted view.
Can the film be removed?
Yes! If you change your mind or are in a rental space, decorative film is a perfect temporary solution.
