There are approximately 500 Eichler homes in the San Jose area. Built between 1951-1962, these architectural gems are characterized by floor-to-ceiling windows. With all those lovely windows, you need a lot of help keeping the sun at bay. If you want to enjoy the sun and minimize the damage, window film is a good investment.
Window film (or window tint) reduces UV rays, which will fade all of your Mid Century Modern furnishings and floors. Oh, and you’ll be protecting yourself as well since UV rays are terrible for your skin.
Another issue with having so much glass is breakage. No one wants it to happen, but accidents and inclement weather can’t be avoided. If you own an Eichler, how can you protect yourself and your home?
For this lovely Eichler home in San Jose, ClimatePro installed 3M Safety S70 window film. It is a great solution for both sun control and safety. This tough film is designed to act as a layer of protection on your windows. In the case of breakage, 3M Safety film holds the glass in place. That means that you can reduce the risk of injury from broken glass. Additionally, you can get this film in clear or get a version that gives you sun control. If you are looking for even more protection, you could have 3M Ultra Safety Window Film installed.
