In his more than 25 years of experience, Window Tints So Cal’s owners have tinted auto, residential, and commercial windows for local movie studios, celebrities, and Ferrari and Maserati dealerships in Beverly Hills. Wielding film from brands such as 3M, Suntek, and Llumar, the crew does much more than simply enhance aesthetics—window tinting films can help reduce glare from the sun, block out unwanted heat and solar rays, and provide added privacy. Residential security film can help safeguard against burglary and vandalism, and protect people from stray shards of broken glass. Their commercial anti-graffiti films also guard glass and polycarbonates from the emblazoned insignia of spray-toting ne’er-do-wells or representatives from feuding retirement homes.

Sunlight has many essential benefits, from helping plants to grow big and strong to helping ants cook their meals at the magnifying-glass factory. But for all of the good the sun has to offer, it also has a darker side. In cars, sunlight causes upholstery to fade and dashboards to crack. In homes, its resultant radiant heat builds up and drives up energy costs. In response to such issues, Window Tints Glendale offers professional-grade solar films that protect interiors without shutting out the light altogether. The films, which come in a variety of shading levels, block out 99% of ultraviolet light. They also reflect radiant heat, which means that interior surfaces can maintain color while home electricity costs drop as quickly and dramatically as a tear-shaped stone from the eye of a statue.

For over 30 years, 3 Day Blinds' technicians have sift through samples and unreel measuring tapes during in-home consultations, custom-fitting abodes with blinds, shutters, and shades. They handcraft and cut treatments such as faux wood blinds, vertical blinds, and flexcell honeycomb blinds that reduce light and are energy efficient. As they tailor-make each order, the staffers dress windows of all shapes and sizes, from an arch above a doorway to a misshapen wormhole in the attic. All of 3 Day Blinds’ products come with a limited lifetime warranty. After clients have made a selection, the team shows up just two days later to install the new window dressings or let customers do it themselves.
