DIY Window Tinting | Home Improvement Tips



hi this is Daniel X with TLS comm you turn people peeking in on your business will by applying window film to certain windows in your home you can ensure that the visibility into the rooms in your house is properly obstructed well to get started what you'll need first and foremost is window film and you can get a roll of this stuff at your local home hardware store sized closest to to the size of the window that you're working with and this just happens to be 36 by 36 which is what we're going to be covering you will need window cleaning supplies because you don't want to put film over a dirty window measuring tape a sharp knife or a box cutter because windows aren't exact in measurement the kit will include a small squeegee that you'll need to get the air bubbles out whenever you're done and then what I have here is a spray bottle full of water and a little bit of soap that's going to be essential to actually adhering the film to the window and then finally I just have a piece of cardboard here because I you know if you don't have a table or something that's protected at home that you don't want to do cutting on cardboard is great so that you don't mess anything up including your floors in your carpet okay for starters what I've done is I've measured the window from top to bottom and from left to right and I really just just written down my measurements on the sticky notes you might not be able to read that but I can and that's all that matters and that way I don't forget as I go along and I'm cutting to make sure I know exactly what I'm cutting for so feel free to stick that to the window as you go to cut okay so our measurements tell me that we're going to take about one inch off of one side and then from the from the left to right we're going to take about a quarter inch off so that we're fitting in that window perfectly and so what I've done here is I've actually marked some spots with with just a pin just just so I can line up just a straight edge it's just a them straightedge I really don't even know what this is but it has a straight edge on it so I'm going to use it to cut and make sure like I said earlier have something to protect the surface underneath you so you don't go hacking your carpets too bit because and that's a that's another video all in itself so all you need to do is just hold your straight edge and keep your not Schneider right up against it and just cut and we're looking pretty much right on it okay you need a clean window to work with so just make sure you have you know any window cleaner and just make sure that this surface is clean before you work with it so I'm about to clean this window yeah cheeseburger there now we're ready stick it on it's a you started at the top that's one of the best places to start and just started a at a corner that you can run it right along the top chances are it will stretch out a little bit once you take it off of the of the protective sheet of stuff whatever that stuff's called so just be prepared for that but again that's why we have our box cutters that we can cut it down the size even a little bit more once we're applying and so um I'm going to check out of this film for a little bit just so it's not so awkward for you guys but I'm going to do a little bit of editing and when I see you next it should be stuck to this window if it working oh hi me again we're almost done what you will have whenever you get to the end is you notice there's going to be some frustrating air bubbles don't worry there's a way to get those out and it involves this little guy right here the squeegee became with a kid we found that if you actually spray water on the front of it it helps the squeezy glide a little bit smoother just because it's made a rubber and it won't catch and stretch it out so much and then that way whenever it can glide smoother you can force those air bubbles to the edges what we're done as you can see this is much better for obscuring the view inside certain rooms in your home this is a great technique to use for bathrooms some bathrooms have windows right above the showers you don't want people looking at you while you're doing your stuff so keep this in mind it's a very simple technique and remember if I can you can if you can just make sure to contact the experts at WWN list calm

    I've been tinting windows for both commercial and residential since 1998. Your DIY Video is very time consuming. The purpose of window tinting your home is to reduce heat, glare, and prevent UV from damage to floors, furniture and art work. Window film gives a great daytime privacy but if you don't have lighting outside at night then the view from outside in is reversed. Curtains does not work for complete heat protection due to the UV still brings the heat and hits the curtain and ends up ruining your curtain by making it fade and it's the same with woof floors and furniture.

    The best way to install window film is to clean your window thoroughly so that it would be clean and just measure your window and put from the box the size you need. Spray the window and peel off the adhesive off the back of the film and spray the adhesive side of the film and affect the adhesive side onto the window and remove the water. and cut the edges if needed. Then your are done! No need to get on your knees and measure things on the floor. That's too much work. Another trick is if you have the same size window next to the one you are tinting. spray the window with water and flip the film over and put it on the window and remove the adhesive and at the same time spray the film then remove the film and install it to the other window.

    That is incorrect you never cut the film to the exact measurement of the window you want about an inch over then make your final cut on the glass

    Gila window film is so cheap. Less than one year after we applied it to our windows, we are going to have to take it all down on every window. The actual tint color is flaking off the plastic that it was adhered to. The windows now look like crap.
