As more people are awakened to the benefits of Residential Window Tinting, with that knowledge comes some questions. A common question we get at Galen’s Tinting:

Do window films block UV Rays?

In short, the answer is yes!

Our window film blocks 78% of solar heat and 99% of UV rays.

But why is this important? Let’s examine this closer below.

Most people use sunscreen with a high SPF to protect their skin and UV-blocking sunglasses protect their eyes. However, many people don’t realize that windows without protective film let in natural light–that is, the light in your home is the same as outside.

This means that if your windows aren’t tinted, you can experience the same damage inside your home as you would outside!

The good news is Galen’s Tinting can help!

Blocking UV rays protects your furniture, pictures, artwork, rugs, and window treatments against fading and sun damage. This is due to the constant heat from solar rays which accelerates the breakdown and discoloration of fabrics and furniture.

The Archives of Dermatology associate UV rays with 90% of all skin cancers. By installing window tinting, you can enjoy the sun in your house without fear of damaging UV rays.

Window tinting from Galen’s Tinting is a convenient, economical way to protect your family and furnishings. If you’re interested in the protection benefits that come from window film, contact Galen’s Tinting today! Our customer service is friendly and helpful, and our installation is quality guaranteed!

Jesse Decker2019-07-23

Excellent in every way

Charles W.2017-09-05

I hired Galen to install blinds in my large living room window. He also helped me out with hanging my curtains. Very friendly, great service. We will definitely go through Galen's tinting for our future needs! Very pleased.

Tia Steward2019-01-10

Perfect work. The tint was placed so meticulously no one would ever know it’s applied. The product has worked just as described helping to keep heat out but still allowing beautiful sunlight in.

Catherine White2019-10-10

Would highly recommend using this company. Very professional, ontime, as well as good pricing. Pleased with how the windows turned out.

Christin C.2016-11-04

Great work! Reasonable price, very nice guy. Very pleased with his work.

Tricia Steward2019-01-10

We wanted our kitchen skylight to be tinted because the sun shining through it made our whole house heat up like a green house. We thought having it tinted would be a good idea but couldn't find anyone until we lucked upon Thumbtack and Galen. He couldn't tint it because it isn't glass but he came up with the ingenious idea of covering the outside with a tent like cover. He ordered and received it in a couple of days and installed it immediately and you can't even tell it's there and the house is considerably cooler. I would HIGHLY recommend Galen for tinting of any kind!

Sandra R.2016-06-07

We were very pleased with Galen's professionalism and promptness. We recently built our home so we were nervous to have anything applied to our windows that might change the overall curbside appeal. Galen was so helpful with answering every silly question we had, and he even gave us several addresses to see his work up close and personal! After looking at reference houses we were able to choose the perfect tint for our home. Our home looks great! We are extremely pleased and recommend him highly!

Mandy Beach2019-01-10

Came in did the install very professional I am very satisfied

Charles C.2016-07-20

My experience with Galen was awesome! The price was very reasonable, actually cheaper than what I thought it would be! We were getting direct sunlight through our living room windows, creating a huge glare. It also was attributing to the room becoming to hot to even sit in. Galen was very knowledgeable about what product would work best with our situation! He even helped clean our ceiling fan since his ladder could reach it! Very nice man to work with! I will be using him again for future window tints!

Melissa S.2017-06-21

Did a quaility installation. Very pleased with work and performance. Would hire again.

Paul G.2019-05-06

They did an excellent job on our sliding glass door.

Jarrod B.2018-07-12

The work is perfection every time.

Galen and his assistant Adam were very, very professional, patient and kind! Their experience was unparalleled in contrast with any other on-site tinting company! The end result: Amazing! Not a single flaw in the whole job...9 windows and a large sliding glass door! The protection and security is spot on! I would give them a higher review if at all possible! They worked with/around my schedule and were respectful, clean, on task and beyond reproach! Fantastic and Thank You!!

Faith Jarrett2019-07-10

We had an amazing experience with Galen's tinting for an office building located in Fort Worth, TX. Galen responded to my inquiry in a matter of minutes and was at the job site within the day. They were quick and very informative when giving us options and were able to install within 24 hours at a very competitive rate. His team is incredibly professional, kind, easy to communicate with & more than willing to ask any questions that we had. We would highly recommend them to anyone in the DFW area looking for tinting!

Galen was very responsive to my needs. I was on a fast track and he was able to come by, measure, and get me suggestions and prices within a few hours. I gave him the OK to perform the work the that same day. He had the blinds made (cut to fit my windows) and installed within 3 business days. That was just incredible. He kept me informed by phone and by text every step of the way. He was easy to talk to and nice to deal with. I would recommend him with no reservations.

Randy C.2017-10-25

Donna Jean2017-04-27

Amazing job! Responded within an hour of my call and completed the job the same week. Very professional and we are extremely pleased with the results. I contacted another local company and they were rude and never called me back to bid the job.

Galen did an excellent job on my windows. He was very prompt in responding to my project request and even met me me right away to review the different products available. He was very knowledgeable and courteous. He was even able to tint my massive patio doors in no time and they look fantastic! Thank you so much Galen! I will definitely use him for future requests.

Lynette Martin2019-01-10

They did an awesome job! Highly recommend. We had tint installed on our living room windows and a bay window in our kitchen. Makes such a difference with the heat/glare. Very friendly and prompt. The price was significantly cheaper than other quotes I had received. Would use again!

Hannah Finch2018-01-10

Not only one of the most knowledgeable people, but one of the easiest to work with. Galen is willing to work with pretty much any situation/circumstances you may have concerning your home or business. He tinted 24 windows at my place of employment. The finished product looks amazing, the price couldn't be beat. We basically couldn't be happier. Would recommend his work to anyone.

Positive: ValueGalen was great. Product is outstanding, the exact color I wanted. Timely, good value, great product. Happy customer.

Chris Spalding2019-09-10

Galen installed a window film I purchased from a creative artist . This film was unique and was made to match the glass in my front door. Galen did an awesome job with this piece! So happy I found him! He was prompt, professional, and did an excellent job! He worked my job into his already busy schedule. I would not hesitate to call on him again. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone! Thank you for your service!

Linda S.2019-03-07

Excellent customer service and candid advise about which product will work best for your needs

Jim M.2013-06-21

Excellent quality, highly competitive prices and very friendly service we’re just a few of the things I noted about this company. My wife had called around to several window tint companies and received a quote for tinting three windows in our living room. A couple of things that she noticed when she called Galen’s was that he answered the phone right away, unlike most of the other companies. He came out Saturday morning, gave us plenty of options, and let us take our time to decide our best choice. No high pressure sales here! He and his helper did an excellent job and only took about 45 minutes to complete three large windows. These two worked symbiotically and each knew exactly what needed to be done to complete a flawless installation. We were very pleased with the final installation and the outstanding service. I highly recommend this company!

Jim Hytken2019-03-10

Galen tinted the windows in my great room. I was concerned that the tint would be dark and noticeable. He suggested a perfect tint for the room and applied it so perfectly that you can't even tell the windows have tint on them. Not only that, my furnishing had been fading due to the sun, but the tint has protected everything since. I wouldn't dream of calling anyone else to do tint work.

Dana S.2016-03-16

Titi Cruz2019-05-10

Galen provided an excellent quality product at a highly competitive price. He answered the phone right away and was able to schedule a meeting to discuss our options at a convenient time. He provided us with several samples and gave us time to make the best choice for our needs. Once we made a decision, he was able to quickly install the tint. He worked around our schedule to ensure it was completed without impairing the flow of business. It looks flawless. We are very pleased and would recommend this to others!

Tracy Patton2019-03-10

Windows look great! Galen showed lots of options and installation was very clean and professional.

Mrs C.2019-10-02

Tinted 2 large patio/deck doors with side windows plus 2 half round windows. Galen was professional throughout the process. He went thru all my options in detail and then provided a reasonable quote on the spot. He worked with my tough schedule. The windows look fantastic; even better than I expected. Would give him 10 stars if I could

Shari F.2016-04-03

I could not be happier with Galene! They are professional! Timely! Their price point was unmatched! Amazing quality

Jason Harp2019-03-10

The work was completed on time. However, days after the tinting was completed a crack appeared. While there was a warranty on the product, after several months I am still awaiting a new window. Follow-up on the part of Galen has been non-existent.

Paula H.2015-02-02

The best....good work...professionally done..on time

Grace Knopp2016-11-16

Very professional. Love the finished work. Highly recommend.

Galen's price was reasonable and the quality of the work is great. He answered any questions I had about the process and maintenance and even told me how to get an LG&E rebate. I'll not hesitate to call him again in the future.

Bane Kerr2018-01-10

Galen did a great job installing solar film on my west-facing windows where the afternoon sun was beating down on my leather couches. He is very courteous, punctual, and professional.

Ronald W.2016-04-01

We had Galen�s install tint on our sun room windows/sliders. Makes a huge difference with the heat and glare. Very professional, prompt and efficient. They did a great job in a minimum of time. Highly recommend. The price was very reasonable. Would definitely use again.

Joseph W.2018-05-26

Galen and his assistant was very professional and efficient. Our house feels cooler throughout the day, but our energy bill has not decreased. House plants are also still getting used to the lack of direct sunlight. Overall I am glad I did it.

Galen was able to work around my schedule and did the job on a Sunday which is usually their off days. Very professional and affordable.

Anthony D.2017-06-07

This guy knows his stuff. I am a very satisfied customer. I love my tint!

Royce H.2019-12-05

Galen did a phenomenal job from start to finish. Very knowledgeable on his products and great on recommendations. His turn around time from start to finish was just as astonishing. Definitely will recommend him to my friends and family for their window tinting needs.

Jared M.2018-07-30

Galen's work was outstanding. Very smooth transaction from start to finish. Our office windows look fantastic.

Ryan Armbrust2019-04-10

Very professional. Excellent prices and he did an awesome job. My windows look great!

A Lloyd2018-01-10

Galen installed tinting in our living room on a rather large wall of windows. I was skeptical about tinting because I didn't want to lose too much light but really needed to cut down on fading and heat. I can already tell that our room is much cooler during peak sun exposure, and I was relieved to note that the view is not diminished. Galen answered my initial call the same day and answered my questions with great detail. He was incredibly efficient, neat, and polite as well. I highly recommend his services.

Davd R.2019-09-04

Galen's did a wonderful job fast, clean and no mess

A few month ago, I asked to tint ceiling glasses on my sunroom. They did very good job and I love the job they did and especially, the detail was really fantastic. Moreover, the price was very reasonable and they were really kind and gentle. If anyone wants to tint for their business or house, I strongly recommend them.


Prompt response and great job.

Cari Snider2019-02-10

Galen did a great job on my sun room windows. It was pretty quick as well and he cleaned up after himself. He came and brought samples beforehand for me to see. I believe the price was good for the work he did. I could have spent more on the tools myself and not have guaranteed that I would have done it well myself the first time!! Thanks Galen!! Highly recommend.
