House Window Tinting
Protect your investment and enhance your home
Your home is probably your biggest investment. When professionally installed on the inside of your windows, our home window tint films can dramatically improve the performance of the window (and door) glass in your home. This means lower power bills, more comfort for your family, improved privacy, a better look, and greater protection. This can be achieved at a fraction of the cost and inconvenience of reglazing.
We offer a high-performing range of house window tinting films from our suppliers, MEP Films and 3M™, for application to new and existing glass in residential properties. Most of our clients are looking to upgrade the performance of their existing windows, and are seeking cost-effective alternatives to a complete window replacement.
Get in touch with us to discuss what you need and we’ll tailor a solution for you, or ask us for a free quote. Our installers are all accredited, and we work to very high standards. You’ll be covered by our limited lifetime warranty.
What can our residential window tinting achieve for you?
Enjoy your views in private
You might have a panoramic view through your windows - many New Zealand homes do - yet perhaps you can’t enjoy it to the full because just as you can see out, others can see in! We have the solution in the form of specialised house window tinting films with high external and low internal reflectivity. This means you get both enhanced window privacy and a better view through the glass, day and night.
Better glass insulation
About 30 percent of the energy used to heat and cool homes is lost through poorly insulated windows. We install window films for homes that improve the performance of a single-pane to that of a double-pane window, keeping you and your family comfortable all year round, and helping to reduce your household energy costs.
We offer a range of clear or tinted films specially designed to improve the security and safety of your windows, and act as a deterrent to burglars. These films comprise layers of very strong polyester and a powerful adhesive that help prevent window breakage. If the window does smash, the broken pieces are held together by the film to stop glass shattering everywhere.
Reduced heat, glare and sun damage
The heat and glare over summer in New Zealand can be really strong, making life uncomfortable in your home as the sun blasts through the windows during the day. Our solar window films take the strength out of the sun’s rays, decreasing heat and glare, while letting visible light through.
UV light from the sun coming in through your windows is the number one cause of fading affecting furniture, curtains, wooden floors, carpets, rugs, artwork, etc, not to mention the potential for damaging human skin. All our window films block harmful ultraviolet radiation, to as much as 99.9%. The result of installing our sun-blocking window film will be a dramatic extension to the life of your furnishings and reduced harm to your skin and eyes.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
"We had Glasshield window film applied to the south-facing rooms of our single-glazed house in June 2012. We moved into the house in September 2011 from a double glazed house of similar age, and were really affected by the drop in warmth of the house. After the installation of the film we noticed a definite improvement. The rooms with the film retained their heat and in general went from unpleasantly cold to only slightly cooler than the main rooms of the house. We are very impressed with the installation and the level of customer care we have received. Brent knows his product and is very thorough with the quality of his installation work.”

How to care for your window film
Cleaning window film on the inside of the glass requires a bit of care, but nothing special. Our films are almost as hard as glass itself and resist scratching. We recommend cleaning the film with a micropore cloth and mild soap. Avoid using household cleaners, and especially ammonia-based cleaning products, abrasive cloths, or scouring pads.
