We had a bad storm go through our area about a week ago.
I have a few scratches in my solar window film and I wanted to have it repaired.
I thought maybe I could do the repair on my own, but I was wrong. Repairing window films is definitely not my forte. I went online and I looked up all the information on how to repair window films. With the scratches, I read that you needed to get a razor blade and cut a square around the scratches. You carefully measured a new piece of window film and cut it out with an excess of one inch overhang. You spray the newly revealed area with water, and carefully put the new window film patch over the area. I had extra film on all sides. Nothing in the tutorial told me if I should remove the excess or press it down and let it overlap. Overlapping left a darker square right in the middle of my window film. I now started looking to see how to remove the patch. Apparently, the only thing I was able to do, is remove the entire window film. I didn’t want to go through all that. I tried to remove the patch so I could patch the area I had already patched. What I was ending up with was a giant mess and a bigger hole. I was ready to put a third patch on the window when my wife came outside. She had called the window film company that had done our installation and they were coming over to try to repair my repair.
