Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Thermal Protection Had this film installed on the 1st of July and since then the temperature has climbed to 97 F. I can feel the difference on the stair banister, before the film it would feel warm to the touch, now it remains cool. The product works as 3M claims.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great warranty Not sure what kind of film exactly, but we put it on the front windows of our house about 18+ years ago. A few spots had started to bubble. I sent in pics and they sent someone out to replace. Amazing service. Happy to see a company truly stand behind their product. Oh and it works great too. Big reduction in heat and fading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement window film I had the same product installed some 15 years ago-that film aged perfectly. Had to have the windows replaced( rotten wood), so replaced the window film immediately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just installed, awaiting to feel the difference! Installed, awaiting to feel the difference and see $avings. Salesperson was prompt, informative, polite, as was installer. The small samples makes it hard to get a feel for the "big picture". I was provided 3 product samples to choose from. I would have liked to see more of what is available. The quoting was fast, but a bit back-n-forth in comparing the number of surfaces and the product options that would fit the budget. The installation looks seamless. So far so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product This film was on the windows of our present home when we bought it 20 years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blocks heat nicely. I have a south-facing clear glass storm door that allowed the sun to make its interior brass handle too hot to touch during much of the day, and to fade my wooden front door. The 3M film has reduced the heat passing through the glass to a very low level, keeping the handle cool, and protecting my front door finish, but the tint prevents anyone from seeing the front door now. I am otherwise very pleased with it, and find the tradeoff very worthwhile.
