A ‘no mess, no fuss’ approach to window frosting installation | WindowArt

You may be tempted to take a DIY approach to your window frosting installation at work or home. After all, how hard can it be, right? While we’re not suggesting that applying self-adhesive vinyl to a window is rocket science, we do advise your inner DIY enthusiast to consider the following pointers before leaping straight in:

  • There are different grades of window film on the market and the cheaper versions do tend to bubble easily.
  • Even good quality vinyl bubbles if not applied correctly.
  • If you don’t prepare your windows well enough, you could land up trapping dust, hair or dirt behind your window frosting installation.
  • You’ll need to have certain tools at hand to properly install your window frosting, such as a cleaning and wetting solution, mounting solution, utility knife, scraper and squeegee.
  • You’ll also need to enlist the help of a partner or friend so that they can hold the vinyl up for you while you apply it – all the while being careful not to let it roll and stick to itself or to you.

Alternatively, you can contact WindowArt for our fast and professional window frosting installation services.

If you opt to go this route, the process will look something like this:

  1. Identify the surfaces you want to apply window film to. This can be any flat, smooth and non-porous surface. Our window frosting and vinyl decals go on mirrors, doors, windows, skylights, glass panels in kitchen cupboards, sliding doors, Perspex and partitions.
  2. Visit our website or download our catalogue. Put your feet up and spend some time browsing through our design gallery for some creative inspiration. You might lean towards an existing design or you may wish to customise your vinyl decals or window frosting installation.
  3. Use our pricing calculator to get a price estimate, which will include your selected decal design, materials and the entire installation process.
  4. Make an appointment with one of our design specialists who’ll then pop around to your business or home to take measurements. These will then be plugged into our state-of-the-art software solution to provide you with a quote.
  5. Wait for the mock-up, which will give you a good idea of what the applied window vinyl will look like.
  6. Give us the thumbs up to proceed (this includes paying your deposit).We’ll then cut your window film design and prepare it for installation, which normally takes up to seven working days to complete. Simply let us know when you’re available and we’ll come by to professionally install your new window features.

A few more benefits of using window vinyl

One of the biggest pluses about using a window film is that you can give your home or business a facelift without any major renovation disruptions or mess. Your window frosting installation peels easily off surfaces, without leaving any residue, which makes office or home moves that much easier. And it’s really easy to clean – just use window cleaner and water like on normal windows and glass doors.

Use frosted vinyl to tastefully display your business’ branding and signage, or to add some flair or privacy to your windows at home.
