Residential Window Films


Protect Your Home – It’s Your Largest Investment! DTE Window Tinting can help you protect your home by giving you control over the things that matter most. Professionally installed window film will greatly enhance the energy efficiency, look and functionality of your windows. This translates into lower utility bills, improved comfort, added privacy and greater protection against the unexpected.

Save Energy Costs Windows play an important role in regulating heat and energy in your home, and according to the EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual in the United States, approximately 50% of an average home’s utility bills are wasted by loss of heat and heat gain through untreated windows. While damaged or deteriorating windows simply have to be replaced, thermal window film provides an affordable alternative to replacement when your goal is to improve energy efficiency. In fact, the cost for quick, professional installation is typically about one-tenth the cost of replacement windows! Residential window tinting can lower heating and cooling expenses by rejecting solar heat from the outside, eliminating hot and cold spots inside, and helping to prevent heat from escaping.  

Increase Comfort With window films on your home, you don’t have to sacrifice the view. Open your blinds, shades, or draperies and let the sunlight in. Residential window tinting reduces glare by up to 87%, making it easier for you to watch television or work on a computer. And because window film is available in a variety of light and subtle shades, you’ll be able to enjoy your view without even knowing it’s there.

Deter Theft The protective barrier of safety and security window film not only helps protect against the damaging effects of flying shattered glass due to accidents or storms, but it also makes it much more difficult for an intruder to smash through your windows. Top quality safety and security window film is optically clear – you won’t even know it’s there – until you need it.

Glass Protection When accidents or storms shatter your windows, flying glass can cause significant harm to your home and your family. This risk can be dramatically reduced – and its effects prevented – with safety and security film. Safety and security film provides a clear – yet powerful – barrier that helps hold glass in place in the event of an impact or earthquake.

Enhance Privacy Privacy window film gives you added seclusion to private and personal spaces while making a bold design statement. You can replicate the premium look of sandblasted glass, create unique patterns, add color, or intricate designs – all without sacrificing natural light or aesthetics. Privacy window film is the perfect balance between function and style, making it ideal for almost any application in your home.

Improve Aesthetics While the effect is rich and striking, etched glass is difficult and costly to install and maintain. Altering etched glass is virtually impossible. And cleaning it can be problematic. By contrast, decorative window film can replicate the look and feel of etched glass at a fraction of the price, and can be wiped clean with conventional glass cleaners. It is also easy to change, allowing you to update your look without replacing your windows. Window films are available in a range of patterns and colors – offering stylish, effective privacy without sacrificing natural light – or your budget

Fade Control Not only do you block heat and glare with window tints, by blocking more than 99% of all UV rays, many window tints offer UV protection for your home. They will help preserve the color of your furnishings, fabrics and carpets, and help protect fine antiques, woods and works of art from discoloration and fading. UV rays streaming through your home windows not only adversely affect your furnishings, but can be damaging to your skin and may contribute to wrinkles, photo damage, or worse… lead to cancers of the skin. Select window films are designed specifically to provide enhanced UV protection for your family.

Window Replacement Alternative Installing window film is an affordable alternative to purchasing replacement windows when the goal is to improve energy efficiency. At a fraction of the cost of replacement windows, window film is an attractive option for homeowners interested in upgrading their current windows.
