Frosted privacy films are translucent and allow light to pass through while providing 24-hour privacy. Some privacy films provide daytime privacy because they allow occupants to see outside, but prevents others from seeing in. This type of window tinting can also provide a home with a uniform look from the outside without the unappealing look of shades and curtains haphazardly open or closed.

Americans spend billions on anti-aging prevention and remedies that claim to reverse aging. The wise expression, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” may prompt people to rethink how they are living in their homes. Why expose skin and furnishings to unnecessary UV rays that could lead to premature wrinkles, fading or worse? Window tinting can significantly reduce the negative effects of the sun and allow occupants to safely enjoy more natural sunlight in their homes.
