Window Film FAQs: Removal, Replacement, Reapplication

If you’re installing window film for your home for the very first time, you likely have some questions. Don’t worry, we’re here to guide you through the process! Below, we’ve answered some common questions related to window film replacement, replacement, and reapplication.

Can Window Film Be Removed?

Yes, window film can be removed. It is not permanent. But we don’t recommend attempting to remove the film on your own. You could leave behind pieces of film or damage your windows. Instead, let our experts take care of it for you. We’ll make sure that the film and adhesive is removed completely, without damaging your windows.

Can You Replace My Window Film with a Matching Film?

Yes, if you need old window film replaced with a matching film, this is a service we can provide. Or if you’ve recently had new doors or windows installed on your home, we can help you find a film for these new additions that matches the rest of your existing film.

Can Window Films Be Reapplied?

No. Once a window film has been fully installed, it has cured and bonded to the glass. It can be removed, but it cannot be reused.
