Product Description

Windows eat up energy. Gila Window Films (aka window tints) can help reduce energy loss and lower cooling costs by up to 50 percent. In addition to providing energy savings, window films and tints block annoying glare and reject UV to reduce fading and help protect interior furnishings. EZ Mount adhesive technology allows for easy window film installation and long lasting performance. Or for an easy on/easy off solution, try our Peel & Cling static cling application. Either way, you enjoy the savings year after year.

My wife and I have now installed this film on several windows and two patio doors in our home. In the process, we have messed up a couple of times, but managed to figure out why (see helpful hints below).

I don't know how effective the heat control film is at keeping out the heat. Only time will tell.

But here are three recommendations for "frustration free" installation:

1) ALWAYS have someone helping you. Don't even think about instalilng this without at least two people.

2) Before peeling the film (very sticky) from the liner, spray both sides generously. This helps cut down on the static electricity, which causes the film to curl and stick to itself--often resulting in ruined film and frustrated installers.

3) Gila does not suggest this, but it worked like a charm with us (after we had messed up, unfortunately). Before you peel the liner from the film, have your helper clip two clothespins to the bottom two corners while you hold the top corners (this will prevent the corners from curling and sticking). As your partner begins to peel the liner from the film (slowly!), have him/her spray the sticky side generously. When there is about an inch of liner left to peel, go ahead and apply the film to the window. Before squeegeeing to the window, remove the clothespins and the last inch or two of liner. If you follow this important step, you should not have problems with the film curling. I don't know why Gila does not suggest this. Maybe they have not thought of it yet.

BTW: I just sprayed regular water on the non-sticky side when squeegeeing the film to the window. I also did this when spraying both sides to ward off static electricity. I did use the Gila stuff, however, on the sticky side of the film and on the window.

This is not a project for people who will not read and follow directions exactly and lack patience. If this is you do not buy. You'll waste your money, waste your time, be mad, and write a crummy review about a wonderful product.

First, the installation kit is junk. Fortunately for me I got a good look at one locally before I purchased. Get a spray bottle, add a cap of baby shampoo and fill with water. Get a good quality utility knife with a new blade. Plastic 4" wall knife. Long handled squeegee. Squeegee was 2.50 @ sam waltons house of discounts, wall knife was 98 cents at the hardware store, if you lack a utility knife one up to the job is 3 bucks including a few blades. Enough baby shampoo can be had to make gallons and gallons and gallons and gallons of solution can be had at the dollar store for, you guessed it, a buck. You should also have a few single edged blades for scraping the window. You could use the excess blades in your new utility knife but I would recommend a decent quality scraper handle and the associated blades which is a couple of bucks. If you have to purchase everything on my list the bill will be less than 15 dollars and you will have a MUCH better time with your installation.

One spray bottle
Baby Shampoo
Squeegee
Wall knife
Utility knife
Scraping blade
Windex (optional)
Old cotton diaper
Yard Stick

Read the directions. Go to Gila's website and watch the how to video. It has tricks that you will be very grateful for.

CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN.

I used windex first and then followed up with solution. Your new squeegee will be very handy. Then I sprayed with solution again and meticulously scraped every inch of window with a single edged blade.

Here are my thoughts after having done this in two houses and having paid a pro to do a couple LARGE windows in our old house.

First, there are a few things worth pointing out that make this job a little easier:

1. wear pants with pockets or a loop you can use. I found it easier to keep the bottle of solution with the trigger hanging in my pocket, and therefore always available when I was us in the window vice anything else.
2. keep your fingers moist with solution while handling the film.
3. realize that when the film comes out of the box it is rolled up with the plastic protection TO THE OUTSIDE. Do NOT lay anything heavy on the film side facing up when you unroll it, as the side facing up (i.e. the inside of the curl) is the film and it scratches VERY easily, even with a kink or fingernail (in fact, you should probably remove all jewelry and have short nails for this job, just a thought)
4. you CAN mark on the film with a standard ballpoint pen. No issue to do this if you cut the film larger than the frame as intended (the marks will come off in the refuse).
5. work top to bottom on the windows for both cleaning and applying the film. That way you aren't leaking down on recently applied film if you start on the bottom.
6. don't do this in bright sunlight, it dries the fluid too quickly.
7. don't fight the film. If it's wet and so is the window, it will pretty much stick itself... LET IT.
8. keeping the film wet is tantamount to success. use LOTS of fluid, or when it sticks to itself you'll never get it undone. The fluid is cheap and even cheaper to make.
9. same goes for the squeegee part... keep it wet on the outside, or you'll scratch the film.
10.
