Graffiti is a huge problem in the Bay Area. Especially when people tag storefront windows, mirrors and other glass features. It is very expensive to replace glass. Due to the inappropriate nature of most graffiti business owners and property owners are left with no choice but to replace this damaged glass. However there is a solution, anti-graffiti window films.
Graffiti taggers are becoming even more brazen in their vandalism. They tag property in the middle of the day right in the public’s view. The City of San Jose can attest to this with the recent graffiti problems at city hall. The City is having to hire private security to protect the cities properties to lower the costly damage being done.
It’s a sad fact that nobody’s property is safe from the expensive damage done by graffiti taggers. The time and cost to remove graffiti is staggering. As of 2013 it is reported that the City of San Jose spends 1.2 million dollars per year in graffiti removal costs.
Most graffiti on walls, bricks and sidewalks can be removed at minimal costs. Some fresh paint or pressure washing can remove the graffiti. However some things such as glass and metals are much more difficult to remove if not impossible, depending on the severity of damage. When this happens costs increase dramatically for replacement and for some property owners making it impossible to cover the replacement costs.
Anti-Graffiti Window Film is the solution.
We offer solutions for protecting glass surfaces from all forms of graffiti such as scratches, acid-etching and gouges in retail, public facilities and any street-level glass applications. Also anti-graffiti coatings give a protective barrier in elevators, escalators, bathroom mirrors and glass countertops.

These films can be applied over the damaged surface, restoring them to their original state at a fraction of the cost to replace them.
