Protect Your Home or Business From Harmful U.V. Rays
-Edward P. Clapp
Ever wonder why your sofa in the living room has faded more so on one side than the other, or why the stain of your wood floors seem to become lighter and lighter each year? Well, before blaming your fabrics, furniture and floor stain, it may help to consider applying a protective coating to your windows.
Steve Pesce heads up New York Window Film Co., Inc., an exciting Long Island based business that specializes in solar and safety films.
"What we do is apply a clear U.V. absorbing, heat rejection film to existing windows and skylights," comments Pesce. "We stock over 30 different kinds of film to prevent such things as fading, glare and solar heat gain." Applying protective films to existing windows is a cost efficient alternative to replacing furniture, fabrics, carpets and area rugs even refinishing floors and painting walls year after year.
The safety films, which New York Window Film applies, are retrofit by certified professionals and are guaranteed not to peel. Window films are absolutely clear and wont discolor, distort or obscure over time. The films are conveniently applied directly to existing windows, so there is no expensive cost to remodel or replace extant windows and skylights.
In addition to reducing sun-fading to furniture, flooring and fabrics, window films also reduce heating and cooling costs by preventing interiors from becoming too hot during summer months and by helping contain heat in the winter. A room with windows coated with protective U.V. film proves to be much more comfortable and more climate controllable.
While the majority of the transparent window films are designed to prevent damaging U.V. rays from entering the home or workplace, there are other specialty films which may be used to turn regular glass into safety glass, which will remain contained if broken; frosting films, which give clear glass the illusion of frosted glass; and Scratchfiti films, which protect windows against vandals who scratch graffiti into glass using keys, knives and other sharp objects. With Scratchfiti films, when a vandal defaces a window, only the film needs to be replaced in lieu of the full pane of glass.
New York Window Film Co., Inc. is the largest Vista film dealer in the Northeast. Vista, the most recommended window film by leading interior designers and interior architects, is quickly becoming a popular addition to the windows and skylights of many homes and business throughout Long Island.
Mr. Pesce explains that New York Window Film originally started out as an automotive window tinting company. Since they began installing Vista window films in 1990, they have installed protective films on over 2,000 residential houses and assorted businesses. Coating windows and skylights with U.V. protective film is now New York Window Films primary business.
Protective window films are an excellent alternative to replacing precious furniture, carpets and flooring while at the same time protecting a family from the suns harmful U.V. rays.
