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.

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

Flawless Job

I really enjoyed working with General Solar and will certainly use their services again if there is a need. They did some initial work for us a while back when we were using contractor services - it was a flawless job then. Recently I decided to apply film to additional windows; thought there was a misunderstanding and the film was not applied exactly as I'd expect, General Solar returned to address all the concerns and was very flexible - this was much appreciated and shows the high level of professionalism! Highly recommend.

Absolutely Will Use Again

Needed 2 entry glass doors frosted for privacy. They were excellent. I am a custom builder and will absolutely use them on our next project!

Very Pleased With Eveything!

I wanted to let you know how pleased my wife and I are with the work that your team did at our home this week. Mauricio, Alex, and Jose worked very hard and did a great job for us! They are extremely professional and customer-focused. We couldn’t have asked for a better team. As a business owner myself, I know how difficult it is to hire good people, particularly in a booming economy (and even one slowed down a bit by COVID-19). So you are very fortunate to have them. Thanks again for the great work. And please let them know how happy we are with their work.

The BEST!

More than happy!!  General Solar is the BEST!!!

by Ursula and Gene A. on General Solar Company
Thank You Very Much For All Your Help

We are very satisfied with the performance of the personnel we dealt with from General Solar Co. from the beginning of the job to its completion. We had two crews working on our window film replacement. Both came at the scheduled time and wore face masks which was a prerequisite by our building HOA for all contractors working here. The film installers were professional, very meticulous, and took all discarded materials.


All the above could not be accomplished without the assistance of Ms. Laura. She patiently changed the schedule a few times due to our medical problems. She coordinated the whole project, courteously and customer-oriented.


Thank you very much for all your help.

A Job Well Done

Alex and Marvicio were here today to finish up our job and they were extremely professional and polite. A real credit to your company.

Would Definitely Use General Solar Again

I had tinting put on the glass on the side of my home where there is the afternoon sun. General Solar was easy to work with. Everyone from the office staff to the installers were very professional and easy to work with. Installers cleaned up after finishing the job. I highly recommend them and would use them again.

Extremely Satisfied!

Dave Brown and his company General Solar installed Solar and Safety Film on our church and school for security purposes. I am extremely satisfied with their work and the product they installed. Dave personally worked with me and educated me on the various tinting, safety film and associated attachment systems they proposed to use. He and his installation crew were always courteous and professional and were very flexible in respecting and accommodating our school‘s scheduling requirements. Their cost was very reasonable and more than competitive to the other contract bids we received. They really wanted to win the job. Myself, the church pastor and school administrator are more than pleased with the completed work. I would definitely use General Solar again should we need additional window tinting and safety film work in the future and would recommend General Solar to any church or school seeking to enhance their security.
