  1. FWIW, tint depot is marketing 80 + 88" rolls for architectural applications. I believe it's Korean made.
  2. I would agree and also disagree with some of this. Particularly the network of Elite dealers within each brand. By and large the dealers that are allowed to offer a manufacturers top tier line of films, are more often than not vetted by a mfr rep and that rep will determine weather that company is financially stable, qualified to represent and install said material and not a fly by night trunk monkey. Some mfrs make great efforts to ensure the dealers maintain a very high level of professionalism in order to be in their program.
  3. I know the pic you are talking about..and the guy holding it. It's a spoof, he taped two boxes together.
  4. I would have just cut them individually and hung them 1 by 1.. probably 3 hours of work.
  5. How many lineal feet of that design was there ? ..
  6. Any way you can trim it down past where it has lifted ?
  7. Yes they are
  8. Nice way to introduce yourself to the group here.
  9. Glad to hear you are doing well Stan. We briefly met at the WFM show last year. ( don't know if you remember) ... just a story I wanted to share with you. .. I as well spent decades working 10-15 hours a day 6-7 days a week building my business....Never had a off switch. I was out one night at about 2:30 am plowing snow in a blizzard when I met up with a friend of mine who was also out plowing for coffee at a 24hr Dunkin Donuts.. he knew I had worked all day tinting and knew our typical work week... he asked me if I wanted to be "the richest guy in the graveyard" ... I will never forget that.. it was about 3 weeks to the day that he died from a massive heart attack. .. That encounter has significantly changed my perspective on how I balance work with living. .. I wish you the best of luck.
  10. FWIW, we have installed frost to reduce glare. IMO it worked well where we used it. Although it does not block much light.. it defuses it very well so there is a noticeable difference in direct sunlight.
  11. Someone long ago said deco is where it was at..... ..wonder who that guy was.
  12. We would rather bid on commercial projects that WILL get done. It's just a matter of being able to perform and being the right number. With resi, we do charge more but homeowners always have the option to wait or not do anything at all. With commercial, it IS going to get done. I feel our time is best spent bidding on projects that will get done instead of dealing with homeowners who may do something.
  13. Commercial... I hate dealing with the homeowner
  14. I gave up auto several years ago and basically walked away from 250-275k a year. At that point in time I had a decent commercial / Residential base that I could rely on to keep a stable cash flow going. Looking back, I wish I had done it 10 years sooner.
