How Does Home Window Tinting Work?

This is why tinting your home windows helps to protect you and your family from the harmful effects of UV rays as well as your flooring & furnishings from fading. Because of the reduction in heat and glare, your home stays more comfortable all year round which also has a positive impact on your power bills (win!).
