Default Question re Window Tint

We recently purchased a manufactured home (which we love), but find we need to have our large wall of windows tinted. There's 6 double windows. Any recommendations for companies?

Default Window Tinting

We bought a 3 year old home that had windows tinted. It had 3 sets of sliding door and stationary window units all of which opened onto a pool deck and all facing West subject to hot afternoon sun. Over the next 4 1/2 years 4 of the 6 windows "blew" and fogged up. Warranty was useless against the Villages Warranty Dept and the orginal manufacturer. Reason given by both was that use of the tint made the windows reflect heat back through the window system, thus overheating the "system". Their position was the aftermarket tinting voided any warranty claims. We had no problems with any other windows/doors. We replaced with pretinted units and over the past 5 years we and the subsequent owners have had no problems.

Just be forewarned that your tinting may void any possible claims for seal or window failure.

All-Pro Window Tinting in The Villages is another good possibility and reasonably priced.
