Many people from the Dallas area reach out to us with questions about how long their window film installation will last. This is probably because they know that it’s easy to remove and confuse this with low durability. However, all of our window films are applied using C-bond 2 adhesive which means they will have the longest life possible 10-20 years before needing replacement!

 Three Things That Could Make Your Window Film Peel Off

 Window film is an affordable, durable way to improve your Dallas home. But there are factors that can cause it to break down prematurely.  We’ve listed a few major ones below:

  1. Window Film That Is Installed Incorrectly: Window film is a wonderful investment for any home, but it’s important that you hire someone who knows how to install the product. You don’t want your window film installation peeling off or bubbling after a few months! A seasoned professional will have experience with installing various types of films and know how to apply them properly.  Before hiring anyone else, ask them about their workmanship warranty; if they offer one (like us) your know the service provider does indeed stand behind their work quality
  1. A Poor Quality Window Film: Any type of window film that is of poor quality will not last long or look good. Trusted brands are more expensive but worth their cost in aesthetics and lifespan. This is another reason to use a proven professional for the installation of your decorative window film. Not only will they have the best selection of window films–but a manufacturer will back the films they install.
  1. The Orientation Of The Decorative Window Film: The window film you have installed and who installs it are 100% in your control. One thing that affects how long your window film lasts that you do not have control over is the orientation of your window.  Window films exposed to the sun all day long will break down faster than those that are not.  So, southern or western facing windows will not last as long as windows facing north or east.   However, the warrant period on commercial films is ten years and residential window films often come with a lifetime warranty.
