Sun damage can cause long-term damage to two of our most important investments–our cars and our homes. The good news is, window tint experts can help preserve the value, life, and beauty of both.
On bright, sunny days, most of us protect our eyes when we’re outside by wearing sunglasses. Neither our cars nor our houses, however, have that option, even though they are essentially outside all the time. But there are actions we can take to help protect these valuable investments from the sun’s rays. Professionals offer both automotive window tinting and domestic car tint that can safeguard your car and your home against sun damage.
Car window tinting is perhaps the most familiar product in the window tint and sun protection sector since we’ve all seen cars that have tinted windows. Many people think that tinted windows are an aesthetic choice, which, to some extent, they are. However, the value of window tinting goes far beyond just looks. When cars are outside, they are constantly exposed to UV rays. Over time, prolonged exposure to sunlight will deteriorate your car’s interior–and will do so at a far greater rate than normal age or wear and tear. Window tints protect the interior of your car from this solar radiation, and, at the same time, protect you when you’re in the car. Sun exposure, as anyone who’s stepped into a car on a warm day knows, can cause extreme interior overheating. You’re also still getting bombarded by UV rays when you’re in a car, even though you’re not directly outside. Tinted windows filter out the majority of these rays, allowing you to drive or ride in a cooler, safer, and longer-lasting interior.
Homes with tinted windows may be a little less familiar than tinted windows on cars, but domestic window tints are becoming more and more popular. The value of tinting the windows in your house is the same as tinting the windows on your car, but the scale is vastly larger. Just as your car’s interior will deteriorate and fade when it undergoes prolonged sun exposure, so too will the interior of your home. Most of us pay far more for our home than we do for our car, though, so the investment that is at risk is much greater. Add to that all of the furnishings inside the house, and you can see that there is a great deal to protect. Sun damage doesn’t happen overnight, so it can be easy to ignore its potential impact. But, just look at the quality of your carpet or favorite painting, and imagine what it would be like bleached and faded by years of incremental sun damage. When you do that, the value and importance of home window tinting becomes clear.
Window tinting is an easy, affordable way to safeguard your investment in your car and your home. Sunlight is a wonderful thing, but that does not mean that we have to sit by and let it destroy our most valuable possessions.
