Increasing Your Home’s Value with Window Film
Posted in Blog, on December 09, 2016
Window safety film is a great improvement to your home’s security. It helps bring peace of mind to you and your family, as it’s a proactive way to prevent home invasions and other security risks. In terms of security, the benefits of window film are obvious. But did you know that window safety film is a good financial investment as well?
Installing window film can significantly increase the value of your home and save you money at the same time. First and foremost, having professionally-installed window security film can reduce your home insurance premiums, much in the same way installing a home security system will. Most insurance companies view the installation of security film as a way to better secure your home – they want to incentivize that, so they’ll offer bonuses and specials to homeowners who take that security step.
If your insurance company offers a deal like that, window security film will literally pay for itself. When you choose window security film with UV protection – such as our Saint-Gobain products – you also will end up lowering your utility bill. In the colder months, the tint will hold in some of the heat generated inside the home. In the summer months, it serves as a sort of solar shield, blocking significant amounts of the sun’s heat from entering. Either way, it makes your home more energy efficient. Window film will also protect glass from breaking, either from intentional break-ins or accidental damage.
Replacing a window can be quite expensive, so having a level of security against unexpected harsh weather can pay dividends. Of course, your home’s re-sale value will also increase with window film. Potential buyers are big fans of home security, and window safety film is a nearly invisible safety feature – much more aesthetically appealing than window bars. It’s a way to make your home safer without negatively effecting its physical appearance – your curb appeal won’t go down one iota. It’s a great, cost-effective way to add value to your home – much less expensive than a traditional home security system, while providing a better level of proactive protection. Window security film is a great long-term investment, both in your security and your finances. Contact us today to learn more!
