Tampa Window Tinting Removal & Replacement

Unfortunately the window film that was installed in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s may have come to its unfortunate demise on your glass.

You’ll notice the result of adhesive and film failure as cloudy, blurry or bubbling film.

Frequently the cloudiness will get worse as time goes on.

You can live with windows that look like crap or do something about it and re-energize your glass while improving your vision!!

Advanced Film Solutions is Tampa’s leading window film installation company.

We offer more brands, more choices and a team of installers who can remove the old and replace with new coatings that come with a lifetime warranty.

Obviously we can attempt to match specific panes of glass where the film has died or better yet remove and replace the entire mess. Quite frankly if the film right next to the bubbly window hasn’t already gone to heck; it will only be a matter of time!

Florida Deed Restrictions, Gated Community Approved Window Film Comparisons

Tampa Bay, Orlando and Sarasota boast some of the more exclusive gated communities in the country.

Homeowners appreciate the deed restrictions that prohibit activities that can lower property values.

While homes in gated communities suffer from heat, glare and rising cooling costs their deed restrictions prohibit the use of reflective window film.

Advanced Film Solutions offers the best heat rejecting non-reflective window films that meet all deed restrictions.

Huper Optik ceramic films provide the best heat to light ratio performance of any non reflective films.

These non dyed and non-corrosive films out-perform all competitive offerings including the 3M Prestige series (dyed, multi-layered films.)

When we discuss anticipated performance on various glass types (single-pane, tempered, IG, etc.) we refer to documented characteristics as outlined by the NFRC.

col

Huper Optik, Eastman Chemicals has a wider range of choices than the dyed prestige films.

Huper Optik clarity is superior compared to the multi-layered 3M choices.

Huper Optik offers a lifetime warranty and of course our choices eliminate 99.9% of the UV.

There are many gated communities that have allowed reflective films in their communities.

If the HOA approves than you might consider the Eastman Vista Series or our LLumar Dual Reflective films.

These films are available in a wide range of light transmissions in either the Vista or LLumar lines and these choices out-perform our 3M Night Vision competition.

11886661475_5711a96c7d_z

Once again check our documented results on the NFRC website. You’ll note that our Eastman choices are available in a 5%, 14%, 15%, 18%, 25%, 28%, 35%, 38%. 45% while 3M is limited to a scant 3 choices.

Our Eastman coatings have a transferable lifetime warranty as compared to 3M ‘s non transferable warranty.

Museum Quality Window Film, Advanced Film Solutions

When a local St. Petersburg museum began considering what type of damage unfiltered sunlight, heat and UV could do to their exhibits they wisely researched all window film solutions.

There are scores of window film installation companies in the Tampa, St. Pete Clearwater region but after doing their due diligence they chose Advanced Film Solutions.

Our team of installers completed the project in 2.5 days.

We applied Eastman Chemical’s LLumar Select Ceramic Coatings that factor out 99.9% of the harmful UV ray without taking away their views or light.

We installed a darker LLumar coating in the central lobby area so that visitors and employees would have maximum glare and comfort improvement.

Advanced Film Solutions has completed more than 13,000 commercial and residential projects since we launched our company in 2007.

Our clients receive the very best installations and our ceramic coatings easily out-performed our local 3M competition’s prestige film.

Updated Critical Consumer Window Film Comparison: Eastman Vs. 3M Window Tinting

Today’s consumers are particularly well prepared to make their own comparisons between window film choices. They research via the internet and social networking.

They check independent resources like the NFRC.

People don’t want to be “sold” they want to be informed and educated.

This is a vast improvement and a powerful tool for our clients.

Advanced Film Solutions based in Tampa Bay with offices in Sarasota and Orlando has a somewhat unique perspective on the critical comparisons between 3M Window Film and the Eastman Window Film portfolio.

20520052761_2c16890382_z

As the former 3M employee (33 years) and as the former National Sales Manager of 3M Window Film and for the last ten years as the founder and President of Advanced Film Solutions Advanced Film Solutions is thoroughly versed in all aspects of the window film business.

We appreciate that our bias is toward Eastman Films. We are their Vista Dealer of the Year for the Southeast USA and the Dealer of the year for Eastman’s Huper Optik Films in Florida.

Nevertheless leaving that aside I’d like to assist consumers in a factual analysis of the differences and superiority of the LLumar, Vista and Huper Optik Film:

NFRC:

The NFRC rates all lab tested and independently documented applied films.  This is a completely objective fact based resource.

You will note that the Eastman film portfolio offers a quantum advantage in choices for residential and commercial clients.

From solar films in reflective, dual reflective and nano-ceramic films the Eastman suite of films dwarfs the limited 3M offering.

Non reflective choices that meet all deed restrictions like our Huper Optik ceramic films.  These patented films have no dyes and a durable hard coat. This compares to the 3M Prestige films that have dyes that will degrade through the course of time.

20513703315_71db2860ae_z

These choices out-perform the 3M films in glare rejection, heat rejection and optical clarity.

Eastman LLumar and Vista solar and clear security films are available in dozens of shade choices and thickness.  These LLumar and Vista Films meet the objective Federal GSA testing requirements and UL Testing that meet and exceed.

There is no 3M Safety Security film that out-performs the Eastman choices in terms of life safety. This is a fact.

We understand that consumers may be more familiar with the 3M Brand name compared to Eastman. We fully acknowledge that perception.

The fact that Eastman Chemicals is easily the world leader in window film sales and market share may not be as well know.

Advanced Film Solutions encourages these comparisons.

Window Tinting Comparisons Eastman Vs. 3M Window Film

Perception Vs. Reality.

Many consumers are familiar with the 3M Brand.

Small wonder because 3M makes thousands of products that consumers use every day; from Post-It Notes to Scotch Tape.

Home and business owners may be less familiar with Eastman Chemicals although they certainly know Eastman Kodak.

Eastman Chemicals separated from Eastman Kodak more than 22 years ago.

Eastman Chemicals is the world leader in window film technology, manufacturing and sales.

Advanced Film Solutions provides superior installations of Eastman window film sold under the LLumar, Vista, Huper Optik, EnerLogic and SunTek trademarks.

1240439_576686155721409_1934916025_n

Flat Glass- residential and Commercial window film:

Eastman Chemicals has a broad array of light transmissions and films of varied aesthetics.

Reflective films, dual reflective films and non reflective coatings in a wide range.

All of the residential and commercial choices have been NFRC certified for veracity in anticipated performance.

compare

The 3M portfolio is extremely limited in terms of light transmissions and appearance.

For example our LLumar dual reflectives which out-perform the 3M Night Vision series is available in darker and lighter versions. The Vista films are also dual reflective and are also available in more choices of light filtering.

In terms of security film there is simply no comparison.

10419441_1025647904135347_5566499258369958043_n

Our LLumar and Vista films are available in stronger 8 ML versions in dozens of light transmissions compared to 3M’s thinner limited security films.

Our Eastman Huper Optik series has several critical advantages over the 3M Prestige series.

Huper Optik has no dyes in the composition of the film. This ensures durability and colar stability. The 3M Prestige films employ dyes and these light filtering chemicals can be scratched off of the film quite easily.

The adhesive superiority of Huper Optik’s clarity easily out performs the 3M Prestige film.

Our Huper Optik films are available in darker versions (20%-30%) where glare rejection and maximum heat rejection is crucial. Our Huper Drei is the best heat rejecting 35% film in the industry and easily out-performs the 3M Prestige 40.

Eastman Advanced Film Solutions Comparison 3M Window Film

Advanced Film Solutions represents Eastman Chemicals Vista, EnerLogic, LLumar, Huper Optik and SunTek Window Film throughout West and Central Florida.

22971784075_26eb1cecb4_z

We compete against 3M window film agents sold at Home Depot kiosks, window cleaning franchises  and 3M dealers.

Many consumers are familiar with 3M thanks to their Scotch Tape and Post-It Notes. We also assume many consumers are familiar with Eastman given their history and prior connection to Eastman Kodak.

What may be less known is the Eastman superiority in product depth and innovation is the window film, window tinting marketplace.

It is this distinct advantage in product choices and performance that provide Advanced Film Solutions with our competitive advantage over the limited 3M window film portfolio.

Window Film designed for commercial and residential clients covers a wide array of requirements. Both 3M and Eastman have documented performance expectations through the NFRC.

Solar films:

Window films designed to factor out heat, glare and UV are available in multiple light transmissions and appearance.

Eastman has a wide assortment of reflective films including silver and bronze in a wide range.

4way

3M is limited to one darker silver choice.

Eastman has dozens of dual reflective films also available in a wide range of light transmissions.

3M is limited to a scant number of 3 choices in their Night Vision mix. Vista and LLumar have 6 X  the number of choices and apples to apples the Eastman films stop more heat.

Eastman has a huge advantage in non-metallic IR heat blocking choices including Vista ceramic and Huper Optik patented ceramic and spectrally selective films. These are coatings that won’t alter the appearance of your windows.

enerlogic

The Eastman adhesives offer superior clarity and performance.

Low E: Eastman EnerLogic has been solving winter and summer energy savings for several years. Our EnerLogic 35 and EnerLogic 70 work as a heat mirror and have been installed on homes and offices on scores of home and businesses throughout the USA.

Vista-Specs

3M recently launched their version of a light Low e film that doesn’t quite measure up to our EnerLogic 70 and they have no alternative to the higher heat rejecting EnerLogic 35.

Comparing 3M Window Film Vs. Eastman For Tampa Bay Homes

Advanced Film Solutions recently exhibited at the Tampa Bay Home Show and we were able to demonstrate the superior performance and alternatives in direct comparison to 3M window film.

ho-624x555

Eastman Chemical is the world leader in window film sales and technology. The Eastman portfolio covers the LLumar, Vista, Huper Optik and Sun Tek lines that offer consumers 6 times the number of choices; all documented with NFRC ratings.

Our Huper Optik ceramic non reflective films are ideal for deed restricted communities. These coatings are less reflective than glass and are available in darker light transmissions that lower glare and block more heat than the 3M dyed prestige films.

Huper Optik has no dyes whatsoever so there won’t be any haze or color change.

Eastman Vista and LLumar offer a wider array of dual reflective coatings in dozens of choices while 3M is limited to just a handful.

12992_618168704883271_1326451465_n

Our Security solar films are the standard for commercial, residential and government projects. All of our choices in blast rated films are 8 ML thick and we have silver, neutral, dual reflective and non reflective coatings.

Our EnerLogic Low E film has been lowering cooling and heating costs for 6 years. 3M has recently introduced their version of our EnerLogic 70 and our EnerLogic 35 blocks nearly 76% of the summer heat while their coating can only filter 49%!
