Get a Cool View With Home Window Tinting Services
Big windows are fantastic for letting in light and the beauty of the outdoors. Unfortunately they also let in unwanted heat, glare, and damaging UV rays. Residential window films let you keep your views while staying comfortable indoors.
The Advantages of Window Films are Easy to See
- No more sweating, no more squinting – residential window films block the heat and glare
- High-transparency – window films can be basically invisible, the only difference is your comfort!
- Your upholstery and artwork will last longer – our tints block out harmful UV rays which cause fabric and paint to fade over time
- Low-E window films save you money all year – reduce your cooling needs in the summer and your heating in the winter!
Effortless Selection and Installation + Comfort and Privacy = The Smart Choice
Our Showroom Comes To You
We understand it’s hard to visualize how something might look without seeing it at your house and so we bring our showroom to you! No need to imagine, you’ll be able to see for yourself!
Decades of Experience
We opened shop way back in 1980 and know a thing or two about residential window tinting. Our installers have 75 years of combined experience and are pros at fitting and installing tints.
The sun can make parts of your house feel unusable, between glare, heat, and UV light damaging fine fabrics and art. But it doesn’t have to be that way – window films can make even the sunniest of rooms more comfortable.
Lower Utility Bills
Adding a low-E coating to your windows saves you money. Low-E window films keep your house cool in the summer by preventing heat from traveling inside, and in the winter the same feature prevents the heat from your furnace from escaping outdoors!
42 Years Of Honing Our Craft
Sun Shades has been in business for more than four decades now, helping people take back their living spaces from the tyranny of the sun and really start enjoying their homes. Over the years we’ve mastered our craft and you can expect our in-house installers to demonstrate time-won expertise when they measure, fit, and install your window tints.
Comfort Without Compromise
Windows don’t have to be a compromise – you can have large windows with great views and not have to deal with glare, uncomfortable heat, or UV bleaching. Tinted window films make for a cooler, more pleasant environment without blocking your view.
Low-E Coatings Save Money Year Round
As lovely as big sunny windows are, it’s undeniable that they aren’t easy on your HVAC and power bills! Tinted window films with low-E coatings block infrared light, preventing it from heating up your house in the summer. In the winter this same coating traps heat inside your house, making it easier for your heater to keep your house warm.

Pleasant & Professional
“I have had great service from this company since having a retractable awning installed a couple of years ago. Jeff is easy to work with and Joshua and Josiah did a great job with replacing window tint on my French doors. They were pleasant and professional!”
– Elizabeth C.
“We are very happy with the service from Jeff and the installation teams. They were all friendly and helpful. We are amazed at how much heat the tinting is blocking from the residence. We have a lot of windows and anticipate that this will make a nice difference in our power bill.”
– Julie J.
“Very quick process. Received a quote Monday afternoon & by Tuesday morning the tint was installed. Very helpful, knowledgeable guys that were able to install exactly what I was wanting for heat control.”
– Maddie S.
“We were remodeling our house and new codes required tempered glass windows in the bathroom. After researching and looking at several companies we went with them for their prompt and honest response to our needs. The owner even offered advice on how to properly prepare for tempering our windows. On the day of the service they were friendly, fast and cleaned up afterwards. They even gave us a certificate to verify the windows had been tempered. Excellent company to work with!”
