WARRANTY & DURABILITY
One of the most commonly asked questions about window film is how long it will last. Professionally installed window films come with manufacturer backed warranties. The warranties provided varies between manufacturer and, even though two different manufacturers may appear to have the same warranty, it is important to learn about the company's history in honoring those warranties.
Window film warranties depend on the application. Residential Installations come with Lifetime Warranties, as long as the original owner owns the home.
Commercial Installations come with 6-15 Year Warranty depending on what kind of window film is installed. 3M Commercial Sample Warranties.
WINDOW FILM DURABILITY
Window film is extremely durable. After all, it has to with- stand constant abuse from the sun, day in and day out. This is not to say that eventually all window film will not fail, it will eventually corrode and need replacing. The life-span is long and we at ClimatePro have seen residential installations that are approaching 20 years from the original installation date. Only a few windows from these installations needed replacing under warranty. Window film also comes with a scratch resistant clear coating of the top surface, protecting the window film scratches over the years.
