How To Remove Window Tint in Tampa, Florida
In theory, as DIY articles will tell you, it’s easy to strip off the window tint. You spray some ammonia on the film as you take it off. If the entire sheet of tint doesn't peel off perfectly at once, simply grab a razor blade to scrape off the remaining tint or residue. If only it were that easy...

The process is a bit more difficult than what you may read. Here are the steps involved in Tampa film removal from windows. Be sure you are wearing a mask and glove for this project.
1. Spray ammonia onto the tinted side of the window or sliding door and let it sit.
2. Be careful to protect your furniture and flooring.
3. Work at the edges with a razor to gently peel at where you can. Be careful not to nick the glass or cut yourself!
4. Ultra Fine steel wool can be used to scrub the remaining residue and eliminate the adhesive on the window. This will take quite some time and elbow grease.
5. Timing is crucial because you need to wipe off the window before it dries up, and keep the window as wet as possible.
6. Finally, rub the glass with a window cleaner and non-abrasive cleaning cloth.
7. Or save time and aggravation and call (813) 435-3445.

★★★★★ - "Dear Chris, You truly are a man of your word. You were not only on-time, moved all my furniture, draped my floors, thoroughly cleaned the inside and outside of my windows, with precision applied tint to each of my 7 Sunroom Windows and removed all trash after cleaning the work area.
I immediately felt the heat in the room decrease from what has always felt like a sauna, and watched the blinding sun reduce to a pleasant hued glow. My view is not obstructed, yet clearer, now that I am not forced to squint through harsh rays of blinding sun.
I have recommended Affordable Glass Protection Services to my parents and will continue to speak highly of your customer service, honesty, pricing and excellence in workmanship to everyone I meet.
Thank you again for transforming a room I could not use into a gathering place for my family."

The price I thought was very affordable. 16 windows, 3 circle heads and double doors, Garage doors, and garage entrance door. A+++"

I had no qualms leaving Chris here while I ran errands most of the time. What a great experience and great company. Definitely worth every penny and more. Hello summer and let the blazing sun NOT shine in. Thank you, Chris!!"
★★★★★ - "Chris was very courteous, respectful, and professional. He protected his surroundings while working. Arrived on time and got to work immediately. When finished he cleaned the outside of my sliding glass doors as well so they are perfect and spotless. Now we are thinking about what other windows he can do for us. Would 100% recommend him?"
Brittany S., Home Window Tinting in Clearwater, FL2021-03-31
★★★★★ - "We had 8 of our windows tinted - Chris also cleaned every outside window in our home. Wow! First of all, he was on time and began work immediately. He was meticulous with his work and the final product was exactly what we wanted. One of our set of windows faces due West - thus we get an incredible amount of hot sunshine through these windows during our warm summers. What a difference the tint made in the amount of heat generated through our windows! I would highly recommend this company to tint any or all of your windows!!!"
