Guard against vandals with commercial window tinting.

Anyone who has ever had the unfortunate experience of cleaning up or repairing acts of vandalism on their property knows how frustrating and expensive it can be.  Sadly, fragile glass is often a prime target for a graffiti "artist" or vandal looking to make a point or spread a message.  This can be especially true for your commercial windows, which are often located in high-traffic areas. Luckily  Pacific Window Tinting installs graffiti-resistant window tints, making commercial window tinting an important and cost-effective way to return your windows to their pre-vandalized state should it ever be necessary. Protective window films are barely noticeable, extremely durable membranes that we can apply directly to your commercial and residential buildings, automobiles and more.  If you have a window at home, work, or on a car that ever becomes the victim of vandalism, the film itself is simply (and easily) removed and replaced.  This tough barrier not only protects your windows from paint but can also reduce or entirely avoid costly repairs from scratches, etching, and even acid-etching!  You can apply it to your other non-porous surfaces making it an ideal protector for mirrors, stainless steel, Plexiglas, marble, and others. It can also be applied to interior and exterior surfaces. Protective commercial window tinting not only saves you money as a business owner, but it can save you valuable time and headaches as well. In the event that your windows were scratched Read more [...] Continue Reading

Security Window Films keep your Home and Business safe.

We consider ourselves very lucky when we see the Sun here in Portland, Oregon. In order to take full advantage of this rare event (and get valuable Vitamin D!) we like to make sure that we have plenty of large windows to soak it up while we can.  Whether at school, work, or home, our windows allow us to enjoy the beautiful Portland weather when it is at its best. Window tinting allows you to choose the exact amount of sunlight that you prefer, but did you know that Security Window Films can also keep your family and valuables safe? There are many places in a house or office  that can allow in determined, unwanted visitors and unfortunately windows are among them.  Luckily for those of us that cherish the Portland Sun, Security Window Films allow us to enjoy it with total peace-of-mind.  Ground level windows are especially convenient for a would-be burglar.  It is always a good idea to close and lock all of your windows before leaving your property or heading to bed, but it won't always stop an intruder. After all, glass can easily be broken and screens cut and removed. With Security Window Films like Armorcoat, the potential thief's job is made much more difficult, often deterring them altogether. While the glass can still be broken, Security Window Films hold it together, maintaining a strong and effective barrier against intruders.  This makes it more difficult for them to gain access to your property and also makes "smash-and-grab" thefts almost impossible as they rely Read more [...] Continue Reading

Window tints will keep your Portland Summer cool!

We may not see the most extreme temperatures here in Portland, Oregon but that doesn't mean it doesn't get HOT when summer rolls in.  Many home and business owners are forced to make the difficult decision between the comfort of air conditioning and its high cost, or fanning the sweat off of their foreheads with a folded piece of paper to save a little cash.  What these folks may not realize is that  by having residential or commercial window tints installed on their windows, a large portion of that summer heat could be kept outside where it belongs! Most Portland homeowners spend a large portion of their monthly energy bills on heating and cooling (around 60%), turning any increases in energy efficiency into huge reductions in cost. Pacific Window Tinting can apply specialized window tints throughout your building that shield out 70% of the summer heat.  This benefit extends well into winter as the applied film actually helps retain heat when desired, making your investment in window tints even more valuable.  As a bonus, these films will block almost all of the harmful UV rays from the sun, protecting your couches, carpets, drapes, and other furniture from fading.  This also means that your window tint will provide you with a reduction in those pesky glares that plague you throughout the day.  Also, window tints are just as easy to clean as windows without tints, so you won't have to worry about any additional maintenance. Adding window tints to your home or business Read more [...] Continue Reading
