Does Window Tinting Cause Damage?
Home window tinting is a big project. Though it isn’t complicated, it’s important to do it correctly. Improper installation could damage your windows permanently or cause the film to appear cloudy or hazy. Here’s what you need to know about window tinting and glass damage.
Improper Application Can Cause Air Bubbles
Always hire a professional to install window film for your Fort Worth home. If the film is improperly applied, it can result in a bubbly-looking surface instead of a smooth one. These bubbles are caused by air getting trapped between your coating and the glass of the pane.
Even if your film looks smooth though, it can still damage your window. Improper application can also lead to fogging and thermal stress.
Thermal Stress & Glass Breakage
Windows can experience stress when exposed to too much heat or uneven temperatures. Installing a film incorrectly can lead to stress cracks and breaks, permanently damaging your glass.
When your home’s windows heat up, window film that isn’t installed correctly causes temperature differences across the glass. Some parts of the window heat and expand while some don’t. This causes cracks and damage. You’ll end up having to replace your window if this damage happens.
