Window Tint – Then and Now

At Solar Solutions, we love to talk about window tinting and treatment. It’s what we do!  We have been in the business for over twenty years, servicing the Florida coastal region from Vero Beach up to Melbourne. We provide the most current products and applications to make anyone’s windows – home, car, or office – look great!

You may think window tinting is an outdated option for your home or office. Let’s put that idea to rest. Back in the ‘80’s, window tinting was already being utilized on homes.  Before moving in, people were often given the keys so that they could have access to the house to clean it, etc.

We would like to share a quick story about one such house that had a front (“formal”) living room that had two nice-sized windows facing onto the front yard.  The room was paneled in dark, fake wood paneling.  Needless to say, the owners immediately went about removing the dark paneling to lighten up the room.  Additionally, the owners took on the task of removing the bubbled window film from the windows.They used wide Exacto knives and spent hours, lifting and peeling the cheap, ugly window tint to bring light into the room. This was no small task.

Why would we at Solar Solutions share this story if we want you to call us? Quite simply, we want you to understand that window tinting has come a LONG way since the do-it-yourself nightmare that those homeowners had to remove! Fast forward approximately twenty years to another home we know of where the owners’ daughter’s upstairs room had window tint on the two windows which overlooked the backyard.  Did these owners re-enact that same scraping and removal scenario as the owners in the ‘80’s?  No, they did not.  This home was in a northern state which had the extremes of freezing temperatures in the winter and well over 100 degrees in the summer.  That window tint graciously regulated the temperature in their daughter’s room. And, even though it was on the second story, they liked the idea that nobody from the outside could see into her room. It gave them an additional feeling of security.

You see, Solar Solutions offers a variety of excellent window tints – different shades for your different needs.  We even have a clear tint that still offers you the same benefits without changing the look of your windows. This is NOT the tint from the 1980’s. Brian Schauder, the owner of Solar Solutions, makes it a point to keep up to date on his industry.  He takes pride in what he does and brings you the best products available.
