Exterior Window Refinishing For Better Resale Value

Exterior Window Refinishing For Old Buildings

The fact is–buildings built in the 1970’s and 1980’s have a very specific and dated look to their windows. The brassy hues, the of the startling shiny glass are all telltale signs of a time gone by and the story of an over the top era when more was more. In their hay day, these window finishes were considered beacons of fashion and the epitome of trendiness. However, like all trendy things, they now speak of a bygone era. Overall, these buildings are very functional and as the window film company, Solar Art of LA shows us, they are easily transformed into relevant modern structures, with just a little bit of design sense and up-to-date window film.

Modern Style Windows With Window Film

In Los Angeles, the high-rise formerly known as “The Green Monster” was transformed into a modern masterpiece using a custom window film exterior. It will now be called the “Variety Building”, a name its beautiful new outward appearance certainly supports. As you can see below, the new look is colorful and bright but still appears modern and sleek as the owners requested. Not only has the appearance changed, the building is now more efficient than ever. This is because window film also dramatically increased energy savings and occupant comfort at the same time.



The best part of the transformation is the low-cost of window film compared total window replacement and the increased resale value. Solar Art’s CEO Matthew said it best in their press release:

“Most owners don’t want to spend millions of dollars to replace existing glass but they still need to update their building to attract tenants. Our product is a fraction of the cost of glass replacement and can be replaced to change the look anytime.”
