Q:Can this window film be applied to the outside of the window
by|Jan 30, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi John and thank you for your inquiry. This product is to be installed on the interior of the window. Application on the exterior will void the warranty as it is not suited for outdoor weather elements.

    Q:What is the best product to reflect heat? My room is in direct sun most of the day here in Fla.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello John and thank you for your interest in Gila Window Films. If you are looking for our best performing Heat Control film, we would recommend the Gila Heat Control Titanium.

    by|Nov 4, 2022

      A:  I would not go for the highest reflection since the room will darken a bit too much. The 91-95% range is more than sufficient. I would try the highest level one on a small window to see if it is OK with you to have the darker one before doing a lot of windows. Whatever you decide, it is worth it since you also stop the UV effect on painting and other color sensitive items.

          Q:I like how sunlight brightens a room, so I'm looking for the most transparent film. Which film would let the most light in?
          by|Aug 3, 2022
          2 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  Thank you for your inquiry. In the Gila Heat Control lineup, this product, the Heat Control Light will transmit the most light. This is measured in Visible Light Transmitted (VLT). This is how much light is transmitted through your windows. The lower the number, the darker the film, and less light that is transmitted. The VLT on this product is 42%.

          by|Aug 8, 2022

            A:  The Gila film does not darken the room that much, you barely notice it. However, it does cut down in heat coming in (good for summer months, bad for winter months!) The best benefit is the UV protection for your paintings, pictures, and possibly for your skin. There are different levels of UV protection. I would stay away from the 99% UV protection since it darkens much more (better UV protection at the cost of losing the brightness.) I would try one window to see if you like it. We used the mid-range (somewhere around 92-95%) throughout the house and are very pleased with it. Good luck.

              Defective product
              We've ordered it twice from Home Depot and both of the rolls are defective with ugly scratches running all the way from top to bottom. They insulate heat well but are really ugly and visible.

              TERRIBLE PRODUCT
              This was a complete waste of money! We spent hours cleaning and prepping our windows but as soon as we applied the film it did nothing but bubble up and stick to itself! My eyes crossed just looking through the mess it made! We squeegeed and squeegeed, and reapplied and reapplied again and again with no luck. Terrible to work with, no matter the technique.

              Great product
              I am using this product on my garage door windows. I just insulated the garage doors and needed to cut down on the heat coming through the windows. works great and looks good.

              Looks like a mirror inside your home - bye bye view
              The tint was darker than I thought it would be for a "light" colored window film but that was ok. We have 5 sliding doors and windows that was the sun all day so we wanted to reduce the heat coming into our home but wanted to keep our view of the lake we live on. So I spent all afternoon installing the product and it was not that hard just takes time and patience. Then night feel and the problem reveled itself. Around sunset as it grew dim we started to notice we could not see outside of the windows. When it got dark you cannot see anything outside! The tint at night has a mirrored surface that faces inward. Bye bye view. So we tore it all down that night. If you are ok with the inside of your mirror turning into a mirror and not being able to see outside in the evenings then the product is fine but if you have any view at all at night it will be gone.

              Very good value
              I just installed this product on my glass storm door and am very satisfied with the results thus far. The written instructions were a little lacking in details, so I recommend going to YouTube for Gila's thorough instructions. Also strongly recommend getting their installation kit which includes the spray and tools you'll need. You won't have any issues if you do as they say. Be patient in rubbing out the bubbles and getting a good seal. This product is a very good value.

                Product is fine, but it didn't meet my needs. It looks to much like a mirror on the outside. I took back two rolls. Will try the 3-in-1 next.

                Did exactly what I wanted!
                I was really worried about applying this film as I read down through the reviews. I have 6 30”x30” windows on the west facing side of my house that get full sun all afternoon. I found a video on YouTube by the company. It was so easy!!! It took me 15-20 minutes per window. There is not a wrinkle on any of the windows. The temperature in the house is 5-10 degrees less than before. We don’t have air conditioning and 5-10 degrees is a significant decrease. I would highly recommend this product.

                  Gila 36 in. x 180 in. Heat Control Light Window Film
                  worked great. Daughter and Son in Law installed on two windows which had no shading. immediately you could see the bright sun light was being shaded. Excellent tools sold to install the project. Will certain use to cover two storm doors of all glass. Highly recommend this Film if you have a room that has to much brightness as it tones down the brightness but still gives you a clear view of what is going on outside.

                  Good product in my experience, AMATEURS BEWARE.
                  Having tinted the windows in my cars, I had a reasonable idea of what to expect upon attempting to apply this product. Negative reviews = mostly customers with little to no experience with tint. Reducing the heat transfer from sunlight was primary & it (titanium) does an amazing job at that, as well as privacy. Read instructions, get help, cut to size needed, plan positioning method, wet as needed (not too much), apply & squeegee quickly (wet back side), trim edges carefully back from seal area.
