Product use

I used Gila in my previous home when I moved to Florida to help with the utilities. It actually reduced the noise inside as well. Now that I have moved to a new home in Florida, I just ordered it again and it is amazing. Yes, it is difficult at first to install alone especially with larger windows, but once you figure it out...it goes on easier each time, .it just requires a little patience and endurance and it will repay you with savings!!!

User's recommendation: I highly recommend it and don't scrimp on the solution!!

Length is incorrect - NOT 180in long !

I purchased a roll of 36in x 180in of heat control gray film. I cut 3 pieces of 53.25in/30in & 28in length and I am left wi Wtf th only 48 in = 159.25 ! NOT 180 ! Now I'm short for another piece of 53.25in to complete a window which I had measured three times to make sure one roll of 180in is sufficient. To be short by a few inches in total measurement is ok, but 20 inches in a 180in roll is unacceptable !

Gila Window Film Window Film

This project was a nightmare of epic proportions.

I bought this window film some months ago and put off using it because I hate to do DIY jobs. Yesterday, I decided enough was enough and decided to tackle it myself. Ran into problems immediately because the backing would not come off the film. It just kept crunching up and clinging to the film. When I finally wrenched it off and tried to attach it to the window, it just kept falling off even though I had followed the instructions. Finally when it stuck on I just couldn't get the air bubbles out and especially the lines that formed. After many angry hours I just left it as best as it would be. Now this morning, I look at my three windows and the awful film has just fallen off. How can film stick to a window when you have got all the water out from underneath it? Stands to reason that the film would just slide off because there is nothing there to stick it to the window. Definitely Pissed Off.
