Frequently Asked Questions

How are 3M films applied?

Professionally trained Perfection Window Films installers apply 3M films to the inside surface of your windows. The films are applied using a mild liquid that will not hurt your family, pets or even plants.


Why should I choose 3M over other window films?

Sometimes what you can’t see is the most important. 3M films are, quite simply, the clearest window films on the market – offering a view that can’t be matched by other window films. This is why 3M is one of the leading films recommended by Interior Designers and Architects throughout the world.


Do 3M films keep out UV rays? Will it protect my furnishings from fading?

All 3M films stop more than 99% of harmful UV rays from entering your home and doing damage to your furniture, artwork, and flooring. 3M films can add years to the life of your furnishings.


Will 3M window films change the appearance of my home or office?

The degree to which window film changes the appearance of a home or office is entirely up to the owner. Our 3M line includes a wide array of styles, from rich tints to subtle shades – the choice is yours.


Will the products make my home safer?

Yes. If the glass were to break, the film would help bind the dangerous shards together. 3M films are available in specially designed safety versions. These products are specifically designed to mitigate the dangers of broken glass resulting from everything from hurricanes and tornadoes to an errant baseball.


How much money can I expect to save on my energy bill?

3M films dramatically reduce the amount of infrared radiation – or heat – that penetrates your windows, thereby lowering the amount of energy required to cool the home in warm summer months. The precise savings depend on the amount of glass filmed, the direction the home or building faces and, of course, how cool an environment you prefer. Some utility companies offer rebate programs for home or business owners who have solar control films installed. You may wish to contact your energy provider to inquire about rebate programs.


How do I clean and maintain these window films?

You clean a 3M-filmed window in the same way you would clean the original glass. No special cleaning products or techniques are required. A soft cloth and standard household window cleaner are all that’s needed to keep your filmed glass looking and performing flawlessly for years.
