The Process of Choosing Your 3M WindowFilm

Understanding the process of choosing your window film, from start to finish may be important, so read through this article so that you have everything you need to know.


Step 1 - Understand Your Requirement

It is important that you get the right 3M window film on the right windows.

When you contact WindowTreat we will ask some key questions about your requirement.

For example, if you have identified that glare is your primary issue then we will ask whether the glare is from the direct disc of the sun or caused by high levels of ambient light. The solutions are different.

We aligned with 3M’s portfolio of beautiful window film products because they contain unique technologies that solve problems better than traditional films.

Unfortunately, this level of due diligence and understanding is the exception rather than the rule.

We care.

Step 2 - Understanding Your Glazing System, Constraints & Preferences

The performance of window films varies considerably on different types of windows. Some films perform well on single glazing but perform badly on modern double glazing. They can even cause thermal stress resulting in a cracked glass.

At WindowTreat we analyze which 3M window film will work best on your windows. Expect a question or two about your glazing or even a visit from one of our glazing experts.

Our considerable experience with 3M Window Film means that we can model the impact of window films on your specific type of glazing.

We listen to your preferences in order to propose a solution that works for you.

Step 3 - Preparing A Proposal & Pricing

We are very proud of our proposals and regularly receive enthusiastic feedback from clients.

We will always be honest with you

Our company mantra, our DNA, which is quite simply:

“Delight our Residential Customers and Make Our Commercial Clients Successful”.

Step 4 - Installation

We typically install within 5 to 15 working days from the order. The result will be an installation of 3M Window Film that exceeds the Glass and Glazing Federation’s quality guidelines for Visual Quality.

If the project is large or complex then we may prepare a Project Initiation Document which includes the key stakeholders, scope, what is not in scope, dependencies, constraints, assumptions, and potential risks. What this means to you is that you can be confident of a smooth and pain-free installation.

We hope that our client will become an ambassador for the professional work we do. It is always very satisfying when you have been referred to us by a happy customer.
