Had a heap of these come back with tint scratched off neqr mirror cover.
Done 4 this week.
Door striker just clears glass when new.
If wind pulls the door it bends striker just enough to hit the glass when door is closed and window rolled down.
Just a heads up incase you cop warranty to have a look at this befor retinting.
I've been looking at tinting my second floor windows/sliding doors (9 floor to ceiling low-e dual pane glass totaling ~400sqft) to combat heat and reduce a little glare. The space is an open loft concept so the stairs lead directly to the space. And from the first floor, leading up to the stairs is a very long hallway that I've discovered to act like a wind tunnel so I think a good portion of the heat is coming from the first floor raising up. The glass panels are situated as such:
6 of these panels are south facing with overhangs about 1/2 the glass' height.
2 panels are east facing without overhang
1 panel is west facing without overhang.
I've been considering Vista's VS50 or Solar Gard's Hilite 55/70 (space is used as my wife's office and she is against going below 50% tint and anything reflective) but beginning to wonder with the overhang, will I benefit much from tint as the majority of the glass is in indirect sun? During the summer heat, I'm seeing direct sunlight through the glass as such:
2 east panels get direct full sun during the morning
6 south panels get no direct sun as it is covered by the overhang. 1-2 panel start to get partial direct sun starting mid afternoon
1 west panel gets direct full sun starting mid afternoon
With the HVAC running, we're seeing about 80-85 degree temperatures inside. Trying to gauge if I'll see any improvements and if there'll be any ROI from tinting.
