Window Tint

  • Added Security
  • Improved Privacy
  • UV Protection for Furniture
  • Decrease Interior Temprature
  • Save on Energy Costs

Yes – we do tinting too! In the past we might have poo-pooed tinting, but not now – now we embrace it! Why? Because tinting materials have come a long way in the last few years and now offer greater variety, performance and style than ever before. We’re not talking about plain old dark limo tint here, but about excellent options to eliminate glare, reduce heat gain, or provide added protection for furnishings, all while keeping your view crystal clear. In addition, we also offer architectural tints (really cool patterns and designs), tints to improve security (reinforce windows without adding bars), or materials that increase privacy (frosted tint can help prevent some embarrassing moments). You can do some really cool things with window tint! Stop by or give us a call – we’d be glad to introduce you to the brave new world of window tinting!
