Do It Yourself \ Installing Residential Window Tint

Okay, I've seen all of the Do It Yourself Window Tint avaliable on eBay but... Can I REALLY do it myself?

YOU BET!... You will not only save money by doing it yourself but, you will reduce your power consumption costs, and keep your house cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, while affording yourself some much needed privacy!

So... How do I install Residential Window film?
Lets get started...

Recommended Tools:

No-tears baby shampoo
Bottled or Distilled water (no tap water)
12 to 16 oz. Spray bottle
6 or 8 inch Rubber Squeegee
Break-away utility knife (for cutting film)
Single-edged razor blades (for cleaning glass)
Ruler or tape measure
Soft, lint-free cloth or paper coffee filters (for cleaning the glass and film)

Before You Begin:
Residential window films are applied directly to the inside glass surface you can touch inside your home. If you have a removable storm pane, you may remove it and apply the film to the inside surface of the outermost window, then remount the storm pane.

Applying window film is a simple process, with only a few basic steps. However, patience and preparation are very important. Before beginning this project, please read the instructions completely and carefully, perhaps using a small piece of film to practice the steps before you actually tint a window. Many first-time users feel more confident after tinting a few, small windows. Start with smaller windows before applying film to larger windows, such as patio doors, which may require two people.

      It isn't the tint that creates the mirror effect it's the metals in the glass coating or inter-layer or the film that reflect light and heat. In the daylight hours thyere would be privacy . At night the opposite unless you shine lighting diirectly at the glass from the exterior.
