Denise R.

Moving to a new home, we soon encountered the afternoon heat and glare of western and southern exposure skylights in our family room and master bath. The results have been dramatic, still plenty of light but no glare and no heat. We had Glare Control do the same thing to skylights in our previous home twelve years ago. It really does make a difference!

They are not the least expensive by any stretch, but they have the franchise for the 3M foil that is far superior to any other foil; and you can be sure that it will be installed perfectly, by professionals that do this everyday.. We have a dozen skylights which in the summer result in a huge heat gain in our house. This foil should reduce some 78% of the heat gain. We were concerned about how this PR-40 foil would affect our view through the skylight. But it actually makes it look better, and a little less glarey. We are really pleased with the result. It will be next summer before we can compare the before and after. But it should work fine, and it certainly looks great. On the round window, it was not tempered glass and was on a staircase landing. The clear security film was installed. You can not tell that there is anything there, but it fuses with the glass and will make it as safe as if it were tempered glass - at least according to the Building Inspection department. They made their estimate quickly,, and did the work almost immediately. And of course it was perfectly installed.

Description of Work
Installed external window foil on a dozen skylights, and a clear security film on the inside of a circular window.

They did a great job. I love their product, how it has prevented the sun from coming into my house, affecting the temperature and their customer services.
