HOW IS WINDOW FILM INSTALLED?

First off, we will remove all the dust, dirt, grime, paint and whatever else is attached to the glass before we start the process.  There is nothing worse than window film being applied to a dirty window.United Home Solutions  Window film has an adhesive layer on the back side which allows it to adhere to the clean flat glass surface.  Using a simple soap water solution, we wet the window and the adhesive layer of the film, and carefully lay the film into place on the window.  Once the film is in position, we squeegee the water out from behind the window film and trim excess film for a unique custom fit.
