Sun Damage: Is Sunlight Doing More Harm Than Good?

Natural Lighting in Your Home

It’s no wonder that we notice fading when we lift a corner of carpeting and see the difference in floor color that has been consistently exposed to the sun’s rays and sun damage.

3M Window film applied to the interior of windows is a transparent “solar shield” that can reject up to 80% of the sun’s heat.

In summer, the home is cooler and more comfortable, so you can save on energy bills. In winter, some window films trap room heat in, for added comfort during the coldest months. All quality window films will block up to 99% of UV rays and reduce the impact of sun damage on furnishings by significantly reducing fading.
