The people I was with and I had a bad storm go through our part about a month ago.
- I have a few scratches in our solar window movie & I wanted to have it repaired.
I thought maybe I could do the repair on our own, although I was wrong. Repairing window movies is genuinely not our forte. I went online & I looked up all the information on how to repair window movies. With the scratches, I read that you needed to get a razor blade & split a square around the scratches. You carefully measured a modern piece of window movie & split it out with an excess of 1 inch overhang. You spray the newly revealed part with water, & carefully put the modern window movie patch over the area! I had extra movie on all sides. Nothing in the tutorial told me if I should remove the excess or press it down & let it overlap. Overlapping left a darker square right in the middle of our window movie. 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 movie. I didn’t want to go through all that. I tried to remove the patch so I could patch the part I had already patched. What I was ending up with was a giant mess & a greater hole. I was ready to put a second patch on the window when our wife came outside. She had called the window movie company that had done our replacement & they were coming over to try to repair our repair.
