When it comes to your next window film project, it is always important to ask questions. The more you know, the better informed you will be when it comes to making the right decision. One of our more frequently asked questions is if window film can be applied to the outside of your window. The majority of window film installations are completed on the inside of the window for various reasons.

Why Window Film Is Installed On the Inside of Windows

Window film is better protected from UV radiation and all the environmental elements when installed on the inside of your window. If window film is installed on the exterior, the normal backside would be exposed directly to weather and experience significant cracking. This results in numerous aesthetic issues and can affect the effectiveness of your window film. There are some cases where window film can’t be installed on the inside of a window do to access concerns and other preferences. That’s why manufacturers offer specific exterior window film products that are designed to be exposed to the elements. A protective sealant finishes this installation and a certain limited warranty is provided for exterior window films. Working with the right window film contractor should also take all the guesswork out of whether or not you need an exterior film. If you’re applying window film to your exterior, always verify that you’re installing an exterior-specific product.
