3M Window Film saves art studio located on an Iowa historical farm. When straight line winds hit the farm house, the windows in the art studio located in the southeast corner of the home cracked. The windows, however, held together because of the window film. If the rain had gotten in the house, precious art work which could not be replaced and expensive art supplies would have been lost. The window also stayed in place for a period of time until the window could be replaced. Injury and damage due to flying shards of glass was eliminated. The owner is an artist and interior decorator. She knew that her antiques, furnishings and artwork was being protected everyday from the harmful effects of UV Rays by the window film applied to all windows of the house. The film also reduced glare and provided privacy. The windows did not have to be covered with drapes. The beautiful landscape of this home was not diminished by blinds or other window coverings. She was also able to use less energy in cooling her home. The window film provides extra insulation to the windows. For example, if you have single-paned window, the film would make the window perform like a double-paned window.
The owner is so thankful she had the window film applied to her windows. The loss due the weather event would have been great. Insurance can't replace property with sentimental value or creative property.
