WHY WINDOW FILM


Benefits of Window Film

Windows are beautiful design elements that allow the natural light into our homes, offices, and buildings. However, windows can also be a source of problems. Windows can create glare; cause fading of your furniture, floors, artwork and curtains; make temperature control difficult and expensive; and reduce your privacy and security while you’re at home. If you are tired of struggling with these problems, there is a simple solution: window film.

Window film allows you to continue to enjoy the view through your windows while protecting you and your family from the sun's excessive heat, glare, and harmful UV rays. Window film provides a host of benefits including enhancing comfort, saving money, increasing security, and providing you with peace of mind - all the while increasing the value of your biggest investment: your home.

These darker shaded films are designed to reject solar heat that is produced from visible light.

Plus, higher exterior reflectivity means you can enjoy enhanced privacy with your windows both day and night.

Ceramic Series


Advanced ceramics allow these films to maintain their color and appearance over time. The ceramic series films reject up to 80% of the sun’s heat-producing infrared light and block 99% of UV rays. Slightly darker than the Prestige Series products, these films allow up to 50% of the light into your home.

Architectural Window Films


Architectural window films with stripes, squares and a variety of patterns. Films that provide semi obscurity with elegant design. Perfect for semi-privacy, decorative or architectural applications. Supplied with a silicone liner, which protects the clear, pressure-sensitive adhesive, and applied using the same tools and techniques for window films.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS


  • General Solar did a fantastic job installing solar film on my family room and living room windows. The crew was prompt, neat, totally professional, and super good with clean up. The product is very effective and will definitely avoid fading of my furniture and rugs due to the sun. I totally recommend General Solar!Joan, Potomac, MD
  • General Solar did a very professional job of installing UV blocking film on my skylights.....what a difference in the comfort of my upstairs! The entire team was prompt, courteous, and conscientious. Highly recommend.Maureen, Arlington, VA
  • My wife and I recently moved into a transitioning neighborhood, and we had some concerns about security and break-ins. Window bars would have been expensive and ugly, so security film was the perfect solution for us. General Solar gave us a timely and fair quote, and was able to arrange installation right away. The installer was polite, professional, and did an extremely good job installing the film. In fact, after he finished up the job and was in the process of leaving, he came back because he noticed a tiny bubble left in one windowpane. I probably never would have seen it, but he went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. You can barely even tell the film is on the windows, but knowing that it is there provides peace of mind. My wife and I can rest easy knowing that our house, our pets, and ourselves are protected from break ins.Andrew, Washington, DC

Thank You!

Everything went smoothly; the two installers did a great job, professional and efficient, and the finished result looks terrific. Many thanks to them.

byDeirdre R. onGeneral Solar Company
Very Happy!

Very happy with the install and product we chose. Make sure to see samples in day and night. The salesman left two with us, and after seeing how much better the 3M night vision looked vs the more interior reflective one, it was worth the extra cost. Installers were efficient and kept a clean workspace.

 

bySusan S. onGeneral Solar Company
These Guys Were Great!

These guys were great! Called me back right away and came out the same day. I've never tinted house windows before and the rep was very helpful walking me through the options and explaining what would work best. I had a quote within the same day and installed the next week. Still waiting on other companies to call me back-just sayin'. Highly recommend!

byYehuda K. onGeneral Solar Company
Right Company For The Job!

I got compliments from the users of our facility about how great this installation looks. I told them it is all because we chose the right company to do the work! I recommend General Solar Company for all your window film work.

 

byMike K. onGeneral Solar Company
100% Satisfied

Now that a week has passed since installation and everything appears to be in great order with the film, I just wanted to provide you with excellent feedback on Melvin's service!  He was meticulous, professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient.  He was also extremely tidy and left virtually no debris or mess in any of the rooms where he worked.  He did a great job on all our windows and I thank you again!

bySunhee H. onGeneral Solar Company
Very Helpful!

Doug Meade was very helpful. The entire process was easy. The installers were also very nice and did a great job. Thank you all!

byLea Ann M. onGeneral Solar Company
Very Pleased!

I was very pleased with the service from General Solar. Although it was a very small project, the staff went the extra mile to help me communicate with the permit office to have the product approved. They stayed with the project even though it was made more complicated by permitting requirements. I really appreciated their efforts.

 

byConnie H. onGeneral Solar Company
Great Experience

My experience was very good.  The technician was on time, professional, and did a nice job removing the vinyl and also cleaning the window.

byDana D. onGeneral Solar Company
Super Attentive & Accommodating

General Solar was a great company to work with. They were super attentive and accommodating to our tight schedule and did an awesome job!

byClarity Eyecare onGeneral Solar Company
Helpful, Responsive, & Knowledgeable

Doug at General Solar was super helpful, responsive, and knowledgeable about my needs. My general contractor installed security film on my windows and doors, but did not seal them to provide the top-notch security I was seeking. Doug came to assess the job promptly, scheduled the work quickly, and the work was completed in a professional and timely manner. I would definitely recommend this company for future work!
