‘Tis the season for costumes, haunted houses, trick or treating, and unfortunately, some wickedness and deviancy. But you don’t have to accept the fact that your property is simply going to be defaced, especially if you have street-level windows on your home or business. Here are some tips to keep your windows graffiti-free for this coming Halloween:
Hands down, the best way to keep your windows paint, scratch, and egg-free is to apply a layer of window film. At Brower Tint and Graphics, we can assess your window film needs and professionally apply a protective layer of metallic window film that can be removed and replaced in the event of vandalism. We use 6 mil thick film – above the standard 4 mil – because they offer better protection. So far, no one has been able to vandalize the glass underneath our films with paint or scratching.

Create a Barrier
Adding a layer of separation between your home or business and easy access from the street can head off potential vandals. If possible, installing a fence or vegetation may create a psychological (and actual) barrier to keep them away from your property. If that’s simply not possible, you may want to consider window film and a layer of clear paint for your exterior walls.
Keep it Lit
Keeping your property well lit and lively is a great deterrent against possible vandalism. The higher the chances of getting caught by either the owner or a neighbor, the less likely a vandal will attempt to deface your home or business. If you plan to be gone during Halloween weekend, it’s a good idea to invest in a timer for your lights or even some motion-sensor lighting.
