So many beautiful homes in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas in the mountains and on the plain have terrific views. You either are watching a phenomenal sunrise casting long golden, peach, and pink beams, or a breathtaking sunset of purples, blues, whites, coppers and rose. And in between we get to enjoy a lot of blue skies and strong, intense sun at our high altitude.
Sunlight is an interesting phenomenon. It is the source of life for all things, and is also the taker of life and structure for others. All you have to do is set something outside that is not fade-proof and you will shortly have bleached out colors, if not a brittle, crunchy item. Wood, plastic, fabrics, natural materials, all are affected by the UV-A and UV-B rays coming through the atmosphere. And at our height above sea level, it is more intense with less atmosphere filtering some of those rays, out.
Those views we have often enjoyed through big picture or panoramic windows in our homes, many times filled with natural wood and stone, are filled with glass. Glass tends to intensify the sunlight, or concentrate it, on carpet, drapes, and wood surfaces, causing fading and deterioration. All you have to do is move a large piece of furniture to see that where it has sat a while is darker than the surrounding area. If you are experiencing that, you really need to consider an economical means of dealing with it while not shutting out the beauty with heavy drapes.

Many people are used to seeing tint on car windows, and it is very helpful in the bright Colorado sun to cut glare. We tend not to think about window tinting as much. Window tinting in Colorado Springs is a big thing for both vehicles and buildings, not just to protect the materials and cut glare, but to reduce people trying to look in, block views to traffic going by, and most of all, help with power bills.
Conserving energy is a big deal in Colorado. We are one of the most attentive states to energy, thinking green, and trying to maintain our environment. We know taking care of the natural beauty we have not only saves it for posterity, but is also good for our local economy. Window tint helps cut heat buildup and acts as a reflective barrier, especially in homes, to help cooling bills in the summer. It even helps some in the winter due to the additional layer of protection on the windows.
When you look for a home window tinting company in Colorado Springs or the surrounding area, make sure to check out reviews and find out if they use a top quality product. Good film, vinyl, plastic, or coating might be a little more expensive on the front end, but will provide better protection over the long haul and look better longer. If you have a large job, or high-end home, ask for references and take a few minutes to talk to the homeowner. The last thing you want is a bubbly or spotty job with variable shading on your beautiful view of our ranges.
