JAG Window Tinting Indianapolis
Have you ever noticed that your furniture and wood floor have faded in color because they have been exposed to direct sunlight? JAG Window Tinting Indianapolis has the solution.
Since 1993, JAG has provided window tinting and decorative solar control films for residential and commercial customers. Owner/Operator Kent Graninger says his products provide 99.9% UV protection for hardwood flooring, furnishings and even people. “Basically, the films protect your home from fading and give fantastic energy savings while actually increasing visibility and making the view crisper by taking out bad light or glare, which can cause eye strain,” says, adding that many homeown are hesitant because they think film or tinting will make their home look dark or distort or darken the view. “It actually helps the view and brin out the true colors by reducing gla says Graninger, who says it allows open your blinds and enjoy your view.
People also worry that it will make the home look different on the outside, which he says is not the case. He says you cannot tell a home with film from one without film and says it provides daytime privacy because people cannot see in.
Another upside is energy savings. Graninger says his products can lower energy bills by as much as 15 percent.
Graninger says all homeowners have windows that need and should be tinted. “If a homeowner lifts a rug or looks around AC vents and can see color difference in their hardwood or, they have damage. It’s a very ll cost and great benefit to tint ver- lacing hardwoods and furnishings,” he says. “When I come to an appointment to give a free estimate, I bring samples of the film, so the homeowner can see how it looks on the inside of the glass as well as outside. The film is blending with the glass and looks very transparent on both sides. Once they see it they understand”
JAG offers a manufacturer’s lifetime warranty that covers product and labor, and Graninger offers FREE ESTIMATES. He can be contacted at 317-877-8468 or by email at [email protected].
