Customer Reviews from Angie's List
"We had the front door to our office tinted, WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE!! It is everything we were looking for and more! It looks great and has made a dramatic change in the sun coming in the door. It went great, I had to keep calling Bob back with more and more questions, but he was extremely patient and helpful. He came out the next day and showed us our options and we scheduled the installation right then. The installer came right on time and had the job completed in no time. It looks great, no bubbles or lines! I would absolutely use Arctic Window Tinting again!"
Colleen L., Germantown, Maryland
(Tinting for 24 commercial windows)
"Bob is a pleasure with whom to work. I went back and forth with him on a few options, and he was knowledgeable and willing to work with my budget. The tinting was quick (all in one day, though he estimated it likely could take longer) and worked like a charm. Our office is far more comfortable, and we are pleased with the work."
Kamni A., Rockville, Maryland
"This is the 2nd time we have used Arctic Window Tinting once at our home in Virginia and once in Maryland. Both times we have been very happy with the service."
Thomas T., Ellicott City, Maryland
"He did a great job. We actually used him again to do some more windows in our home. He has pride in his work and it shows. Would use again in a heartbeat."
Steve S., Vienna, Virginia
"Bob was great to deal with. Young installer Mike was punctual and neat and installation was top notch. I did extensive price shopping and they were lowest by far. Everyone spoke English and was a U.S. Citizen."
John N., Clifton, Virginia
"Great! Robert (company owner/operator) was very easy to deal with. I saw the company ad in the Angie's List monthly mailed brochure and gave him a call. He returned my call just a few minutes later, gave me a good overview of the work his company does and answered all my questions. We scheduled an estimate visit; he was able to work me in to his schedule promptly. He came to my home and reviewed the most suitable options for my situation. He didn't try selling me museum-grade-antique-protecting film; he asked me about my concerns (which were furniture and books fading, glare) and suggested a couple of alternatives. He brought samples of his products, so I was able to compare the suggestions and the different color tints (I chose a very pale gray, which you cannot really even notice)."
"We scheduled the installation, and Mike, one of his installers, applied the film. Mike was professional, very courteous, and really meticulous about his work. You could tell he was an artisan —he wasn't just slapping the film on; he took pride in doing his job well. And it looks great! And after only a couple of days, I can tell the difference —it's been warm outside, which previously caused my north-and-west-facing home to become very warm inside. But, now that the tinting has been installed, my home isn't startlingly bright with glare inside my living room now and it's not turn-on-the-air-conditioner-immediately time, either (it usually was, when the sun hit)."
"Robert provided a lifetime warranty, so though I won't likely be using his services again for this home, I WILL be employing his firm if I purchase another home in the area in the future."
Patricia U., Arlington, Virginia
"We're repeat customers. That should say it all. They're a first class company. I recommend them highly."
Maria G., Arlington, Virginia
"Robert came and measured the windows and explained the product that met my needs. No pressure and was very professional with the explanations.
Day of installation was easy again the installer explained all about the windows and what to expect with them for the next 60 days. He left no mess and was done in less that 1 hour. The price was the best and someone came out in person to talk to you."
Fran D., Crownsville, Maryland
"Great service. No complaints!"
Jeffrey S., Lincoln, NE
"All is well. Still in the "drying off" period but no problems and expect no problems. Staff were courteous and responsive."
Michael C., Washington, DC
"There were two sessions. First, to measure my windows and second to install the window film. Both went smoothly."
Carol N., Olney, MD
"Excellent! The installer was on time. He worked quickly and explained what he was doing. He was very pleasant and very neat. He cleaned up after the job."
Patrice J., Alexandria, Virginia
"The whole process was done very quickly and professionally. They showed
up at the expected time, put on the tinting, cleaned up and completed the work in a timely manner."
Michaele S., Burke, Virginia
"Added protective and light filtering film to my kitchen windows, which lowered the temperature in summer, saved on my electric bill, and improved my home."
"Provider was prompt and responsive, sent out an estimator/sales rep who was prompt, clean, courteous, and not pushy. Informed me about the tinting product and process, provided samples and helped me to select the right tint for my situation (I wanted maximum reduction in heat transfer with maximum ability to see my kids out my kitchen windows). Installer came out, was prompt, clean, courteous, did a great job on the 3 double hung windows as ordered, and then offered to also tint the glass on my French doors to the deck as he had time and material remaining under the offer, at no extra charge! What a great service! Highly recommend."
Michael Q., Fairfax, Virginia
"They did a good job. They showed up on time and were very flexible with meeting my needs with the Big Deal. They customized the package for me to make sure it worked for what I need to have done."
Susan F., Fairfax, Virginia
"My previous home had tinted windows to reduce heat and fabric fading. I was happy with the product I used at that time (10 years ago) and just wanted the same film again in my DC house. Arctic Tinting recommended a new generation product that has ceramic heat/cold shielding properties. It's a great product. The old window glass itself is exponentially better insulated. It is neither hot to the touch in summer nor freezing cold to the touch in the depths of winter. Arctic even recommended a less expensive product for my east-facing windows and a much stronger one for my direct west-facing windows and the advice was spot-on. The view out my windows is hardly affected, but my heating and cooling bills are lower. It's a great product and I'm very happy with the recommendation and the great service."
"On time, fast installation, good quality workmanship."
Linda L., Washington, DC
"The installation went quickly, the man seemed very knowledgeable and there have been no problems since. I did not give a rating about price. I had not had this process done before and chose this company primarily because of the recommendations on Angie's list. It was a price I was willing to pay and one that seemed fair."
Marilyn S., Rockville, Maryland
"I am extremely pleased. I searched Angie's List for a provider of window tinting and came across Arctic Window Tinting. I called and made an appointment for the following week. The installer arrived on time and explained what he would be doing. It took no time whatsoever for the installation. What a difference this film makes. My mail carrier was constantly burning his hands when attempting to put the mail in the mail slot. Bob followed up with a phone call to make sure everything went well. I would definitely use Arctic Window again and highly recommend them."
Barbara C., Silver Spring, Maryland
"I used Arctic Window Tinting for window tinting. I had sun damage on my hardwood floors and so they tinted the windows to reduce some of the UV rays. They also did the privacy tinting for my side panel windows on my front door, so that sunlight can pass through and anybody at the window or at the door won't be able to see into the house. So they put the frosted tint on my windows."
Stanford P., Columbia, Maryland
"When I called the vendor I got a very prompt response. I was a little passed the installation deadline that was in the offer when I called but the vendor didn't mention it. He came out the next day to measure and discuss the product options. He explained everything well and to the point. I chose the darkest tint, requiring a small additional fee, maybe $30. The installer came the following day. He was prompt and courteous. I love the dark tint because I wanted no glare and no noticeable sunlight in the morning. If you want to know the sun is shining go with a lighter tint. I did not do a price comparison with other vendors, just trusted Angie."
Gynell M., Alexandria, Virginia
"The owner/estimator replied quickly to my inquiry and came out to give a quote on a Saturday morning. The estimate was fair and comparable to estimate from other a competitor. He acted interested in the work and in solving our problem."
"The installation scheduling was easy, and the installer arrived on time, completed the work in the allotted time and cleaned up after himself."
"We are very happy with the finished product."
Jayne C., Mclean, Virginia
"I think it took longer than normal but that was because my french doors contain these slats there were hard to remove. They took care in removing them and not doing any damage to the windows. I would use them again as the product and installation was excellent."
Espie L., Alexandria, Virginia
"Perfect. No complaints. Quick and efficient and most importantly punctual."
Thang D., Olney, Maryland
"Went very well. They came out, did the job and windows look good!"
Ernest L., Bowie, Maryland
"They tinted our family room windows, which was 8 windows, and the bedroom patio doors. We had our dining room done to protect the painted wall murals from UV damage."
"It's great. It worked out just as we expected it to and it's working very nicely. There was an additional charge because there were additional windows that had to be done. I would highly recommend them, they did an excellent job. I've had no issues at all. We wanted to cut down on the heat coming through. So the tinted windows cut down dramatically on the heat and the air conditioner does not come on as often."
Susan H., Eldersburg, Maryland
"Very positive experience from when they first came out to measure through the install. We are very happy with the results as it has cut down the heat from the sun shining in that window in the afternoon considerably. Would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone needing this type of work done."
Carol P., Laurel, MD
"Owner came in to take measurements and schedule a time for service. Service was delayed a couple of days due to injury to installer but I was in the loop the entire time. Installation took 30 minutes, very professional, nice installer. Excellent service. If I were to do additional windows, I would certainly contact them."
Carol T., Bethesda, Maryland
"This job went great – bought the deal to get our two upstairs bedroom windows done but ended up adding another upstairs window and two skylights in the family room. They responded quickly to my call and then came out quickly to check what needed to be done and give me estimate on the additional work. Set up an appointment that was convenient to my schedule and the installer was there right on time. He did a great job, was very professional and cleaned up any mess thoroughly. We plan to use them again for two more front windows."
Janette W., Laurel, Maryland
"Arctic Window Tinting was very punctual. They seemed to be a very good company and they kept the schedule for the appointment. We have not been able to compare really how efficient their film is because this is the first summer after the installation. But we hope so far our floor seemed that they've had the same color and it reduced some glare definitely in the kitchen area. So far, so good."
Steven R., Gainesville, Virginia
"The company did a good job, they came in and fixed some other repairs a previous business left as well"
Derevia G., Germantown, Maryland
"The customer service experience was great. From scheduling to when the person showed up to install the film."
James W., Ashburn, Virginia
"We found Arctic on Angie's List, as they were offering a special promotion. They provided us with a quote for multiple windows which reflected the promotion and an additional discount due to the size of the job. We felt that their pricing was extremely competitive, their service provider professional and knowledgeable. We would use them again in the future, and we were happy with their overall service."
Brian H., Leesburg, Virginia
"I had four double hung windows tinted in living and dining rooms to protect wood floors. Easy to set appointment, quick service, friendly, affordable, knowledgeable. Will def use again!"
Joanne H., Ashburn, Virginia
"My westward facing windows and front door were tinted with film. I wish I had done this years before to keep my upholstery from fading and cut the glare."
Marylee K., Gaithersburg, Maryland
"The windows and doors were washed thoroughly and the film applied on the inside in about an hour. Results were better than expected. Now furniture and rugs inside will be protected from ultraviolet rays and there will be less heat loss in the winter."
George F., Potomac, Maryland
"They were just great! They were courteous and professional and did a great job for a reasonable price!"
Alexandra B., Ashburn, Virginia
"I was told someone would arrive at the house at 7:30, and at 7:30, my doorbell rang. The work was completed in a timely manner and everything looks great!"
Jennifer T., Bristow, Virginia
"They did a fantastic job. I highly recommend them."
Monica M., South Riding, Virginia
"The technician arrived on time, completed the work in a reasonable amount of time and left the work areas clean."
Brandon W., Ashburn, Virginia
"My first phone call was returned promptly. Questions were answered and follow-up calls were made as promised. I requested samples, which were received via mail in 2 days. Installer arrived on the date promised, at the time promised. Installation was quick, efficient and professional. I am very pleased with results and would use Arctic again. I have recommended them to others."
Jo O., Washington, DC
"The salesperson (Bob) was friendly and helpful when he came out to measure the windows and helped me decide which products were right for the respective windows. The installers was on time, and likewise friendly and professional. I was very satisfied with the result."
Robert S., Centreville, Virginia
"They cleaned the inside of the windows and applied the film.
They arrived on time, carefully applied the film, instructed me on care, and cleaned up before they left."
Anne G., Great Falls, Virginia
"We had window tinting installed on the front of our house and the back of our house. We wanted to address sun fading on our furniture, carpet and draperies, and also deal with sun glare and warming in summer time. We bought an Angie's List voucher which covered the front of our house, and we also purchased additional tinting for the back of our house."
"The gentleman came to our house to give us an estimate and gave us our different options. He showed up on time and was pleasant and easy to work with. Though we ended up buying additional services, we did not feel pressured at all. The installers showed up on time and completed the work within the estimated time. I would definitely recommend their service to friends."
Jennifer T., Clarksburg, Maryland
"We have large double height windows in our living room which allow a lot of sun in. Arctic Tinting was recommended to us by another company that did an energy audit. The project was done quickly and well. The crew was very friendly. We have noticed a significant difference in our room temperature after having the windows tinted. It should also help minimize furniture fade from sun exposure."
"We highly recommend this company."
Alison P., Chevy Chase, Maryland
"I bought an Angie's List Big Coupon for services from Arctic Window Tinting. They were professional and pleasant from the start. Got an estimate for work that exceeded the coupon. It was reasonable, so we added that work on."
"Just a delight to work with from start to finish."
Bonnie B., Takoma Park, Maryland
"Arctic window tint treated two windows in our family room area as we have a lot of direct sun and wanted to help protect that area and the furnishings there."
"Pretty easy process and straight forward. We purchased an Angie's List "Big Deal". We had a pretty small job but they came out as promised, quick to schedule, took measurements and within a week or so were back out to install everything."
"We were a pretty small job for them and appreciate their service. If we need tinting in the future we would call them again as we are considering tinting many more windows in our home."
Peter D., Springfield, Virginia
"A salesman came first and had all the information for me that we had discussed on the phone. He called me within 24 hrs of buying the deal! He arrived on time and we talked about all the areas to be covered. We made and appointment for the installer for about a week later."
"This gentleman was an expert! He explained what he was doing and what to expect and explicit directions for care. I was only charged $25 above the Deal because I had them do a storm door and that was listed in the deal as being an extra charge. I was surprised it was so little. Now that they are in place, I have to say all was as I was told. The only surprise was with the darker tint my rooms are significantly darker, but the glare and heat have dramatically reduced. I only have one small bubble and the tech said to give the windows two months to work that sort of thing out. I love the way these windows look from the outside! In the daylight, you absolutely can not see through the door unless have your face up against the glass! It also gives a sort of mirror like shine and makes the windows look very clean!"
"Overall, I was so happy with the expertise of the salesperson and the technician. I was very comfortable having them in my home and would have them back if needed."
Dawn T., Bethesda, Maryland
"Good overall service. Work was completed as promised. I was very pleased with the finished product."
Raphael O., Gainesville, Virginia
"Arctic Window team delivered on all commitments, were on time, on budget and product delivered as promised. Satisfied with results. Dramatically reduced glare and noticed a temperature benefit. Would use again."
Steven B., Mclean, Virginia
"Arctic Windows was prompt, professional, and informative."
"Thus far I have been really pleased with the product. It has been particularly effective in the summer —my window-wall was usually blinding in the afternoon sun. This summer was pleasant and much cooler as well."
Lita M., Burke, Virginia
"Efficient and professional. There was what appeared to be a small hairline cut in one of the films, but they told us to wait a week or two and call back if it didn't "heal" itself. No idea how that worked, but I can't see the cut anymore so we're happy."
Charles C., Arlington, Virginia
"Estimator was courteous and professional. Workers were friendly and on time. Cleaned up after themselves. Good experience."
Jeff C., Leesburg, Virginia
"Provided window tinting for sunroom and living room. From the initial call to Bob at Arctic to the completed job we were extremely pleased with the work performed. If all contractors conducted their business as Bob does it would make life much easier when getting work done. Bob was prompt, professional, and provided the estimate at the time of initial visit. The installer also did a great job."
Larry M., Mt. Airy, Maryland
"I chose the medium % light-blocking tint, not the highest blocking tint. I also decided to tint only the windows on the hot side of the house (southwest facing). I can tell the glare and heat on the tinted side is less than it was before I got the tinting done, and I'm very happy about that. So far the tint material is holding up to occasional cleaning."
"The procedure was painless and the product seems to be good quality. I can tell a difference in the temperature and glare in the room where the sun is strongest. The salesman/estimator was in touch very quickly, was clear with the options, and professional."
Christy M., Gaithersburg, Maryland
"We chose this firm based upon a combination of a Special deal offer and their excellent ratings on Angie's List. We had been considering this for a while and the coupon prompted us to move ahead. The owner responded very quickly to my call, scheduled a day/time to consult with us as to our needs and costs, and was very professional in his recommendations. We really enjoyed learning about the products and processes from him. Once we made the purchasing decision the install date was quickly scheduled, and the installer was prompt, courteous, efficient and very professional."
"We discovered a seal failure on a double pane window that I was previously unaware of due to its being covered by window treatments. They had no problem rescheduling the tinting of that one window after we got it replaced. I was very impressed at how they handled this little, follow-up job. We have noticed a difference especially in our kitchen which faces directly East, both in reduced glare and reduced heat in the morning. We are very happy with the products and would definitely recommend this company."
Janet R., Silver Spring, Maryland
"They did a lot of windows in our house where the sun comes in and affects the hardwood floors and furniture. It was very professional, he did an excellent job, you can't even tell they are there. We dealt with him and the owner who came out to do the estimate. The owner even called to make sure everything was good and that we were happy."
Barb M., Arlington, Virginia
"Window tinting was applied to two large skylights, two doors, two odd shaped windows above windows with blinds, and a large semi-circular window above the doors."
"The owner came on the 12th to measure and provide an estimate (with an Angie's discount) and the tinting expert came on the 16th to complete the job. They were both courteous and professional and didn't waste time. Two different tints were applied (darker for the skylights) and all the windows look great. We are very pleased with the result."
Raymond B., Herndon, Virginia
"We had the windows on our first floor tinted to prevent fading and glare. Bob explained the different types of tint. We close an anti-glare tint for the back of our house where the floors had just been replaced, and a heat reducing tint on our storm door which often gets too hot to touch."
"Bob was the most responsive home service professional I have ever worked with! He returned my request for an estimate before I had even shut down my computer. He came the next day to give us an estimate, and the work was completed within 3 days. The worker who came to install the tint was respectful of our home and did a great job with the tint. We have received many comments and compliments from friends and family about what a big difference the tint has made in our house. We are very pleased."
Jamie W., Lansdowne, Virginia
"Very professional. Did not see the installer as I was in the hospital. Arranged for a friend to allow him into condo. Did a beautiful job. Excellent."
Joan R., Arlington, Virginia
"The installation went quickly and efficiently. Arctic Tinting was also great and knowledgeable with assisting in choosing the strength of tint to use based on the location of windows and the orientation. The product has really helped cut the heat and glare from our west facing windows and keeping the A/C from having to work so hard. Would recommend without reservation."
Jackie D., Washington, DC
"Window film was put on my two west-facing sliding glass doors. Very well done. Cannot see the film at all -- no bubbles, no visible edges. Very nice!"
"Very smooth. Estimator came to measure and show me the choices of darkness of the dim, then the installer came and did the installation. Very quick, efficient, and professional."
Rhonda B., Gaithersburg, Maryland
"From our perspective the job could not have gone better. The owner Bob showed up on time, only a couple of days after my call. He gave excellent advice and recommendations for our situation. Which was our desire to reduce glare and potential damage to my wife's eyes as well as sun fading/damage to our furnishings while at the same time preserving our water view in all light levels. Our home faces almost due east resulting in very strong morning sun combined with strong reflective glare off the river, a sort of double whammy. However we wanted to maintain good visibility in lower light situations in the late afternoon and evening. Bob narrowed the choices to about 4 and it was relatively easy to reach consensus on the appropriate film darkness to suite our needs. Bob's level of product knowledge and experience was both impressive and extremely valuable, leaving us very comfortable with our decision."
"The product was installed perfectly the following week in a half day by two employees my wife described as very polite and experienced. Just as Bob said, when I first saw the work the next day I couldn't tell the film had been applied, and I am very picky. We could not be happier with the result, the film performs exactly as Bob described and is guaranteed for the life of the home. Our only regret is not covering a couple of bedroom windows, which we omitted because we have blinds and shades on those windows. However after you've been in rooms with the tinting, it is a little painful to walk in the bedroom without it since we keep the shades up all day once we're up. For the most part you never notice the film is there, except that your eyes don't hurt in high glare situations!"
Christa D., Woodbridge, Virginia
"We couldn't have been happier with all aspects of the job."
Bev L., Gainesville, Virginia
"The gentleman was punctual. He came right in and started working. He was quick and efficient. It took him no time at all to install the tint on the windows and door. I am pleased with the results. I plan to contact them again regarding more windows being tinted in the near future."
Cathryn J., Washington, DC
"We called Arctic Window Tinting, and made an appointment for someone to come by and give us an estimate on tinting our windows in our 2 story open family room. They arrived a few days later and gave us detailed information on installing window tint. They showed us different samples of color tint and answered all our questions. We then set up an appointment for the following week. Our installer arrived exactly on time and walked us through what he would be doing. We have approximately 18 windows in our family room that we had tint applied to. It took about 1-2 hours for the entire process, including prep, work, cleanup, and directions to follow about treating our new windows post install. Our installer was very professional and did a great job. We plan to tint more of our windows throughout the house, and will definitely be using Arctic Window tinting for any future window treatments."
Nancy S., Leesburg, Virginia
My wife and I were very pleased with the level and quality of service provided by Arctic Window Tinting. Bob, the company owner was very prompt, responsive, and helpful to my emails and eventual phone calls. The work was done exactly on time and exactly on the estimated cost. Ken, the installer, did an outstanding job. He was on time (actually 4 minutes early), very neat, very nice, and did excellent work. He moved all of our furniture himself to make room for his ladder; laid down a drop cloth on our carpet; did not drip a drop of soap solution; quickly but properly installed the tinting (two skylights in about an hour); carefully inspected his work; clean up, and put all of our furniture back the way he found it. All I did was write the check, and engage in a nice conversation with Ken while he worked. Job well done!"
"On a side note, Arctic Window Tinting is located in Rockville, Maryland. Our home is in Crofton, Maryland, near Annapolis. I had contacted 2 local Annapolis window tinting companies first; both companies promised me that their sales person would call; neither did. When I emailed Arctic Window Tinting via Angie's List, Bob got back to me within an hour or so. It was worth it to Arctic Window Tinting in Rockville to come all of the way out to Crofton for a small $450 job, where as two Annapolis companies could not be bothered to make a quick $450 in their own backyard."
"Kudos and thanks again to Arctic Window Tinting!"
Darren F., Crofton, Maryland
"Experience was very positive and deserves a solid A rating across all categories of quality and service. The initial call back occurred within 24 hours and an estimate was promptly provided which outlined a range of quality and pricing options. Our house has a large number of over sized windows and we selected the premium product option and decided to do the entire house. The installation was scheduled within a week of our decision date and was completed in a single day. The two installers were courteous and professional and we are very satisfied with the end result. We haven't received our next electric bill yet to verify energy savings although the AC unit appears to not be kicking in as frequently as it had been, in spite of the warmer temperatures. I highly recommend Arctic Window Tinting to anyone considering this type of service."
Stacey R., Woodbine, Maryland
"I had my home windows tinted (street and upstairs level windows) to reduce heat and glare."
"A person from the company came to my house and measured the windows that I wanted tinted. I was slightly over the footage advertised on Angie's List and had to pay an extra $100.00 (well worth it.). The person was very helpful in helping me decide which shade of tinting that was right for me. Basically I wanted tinting to reduce the sun heat and glare (from morning and evening sun) and still have a nice window view. He showed various samples that he held against the window to help me choose which shade of tinting was best for me. He also explained how sun rays are filtered out with each tint sample. He also asked probing questions so he could get an idea as to what I wanted so he could make the best recommendation for me."
Ronnie W., Washington, DC
"I could not be more pleased with our window tint. We had a tremendous glare coming through our windows and the tint helped significantly. The Huper Optik product seemed to be superior to the other tint products out there. The install went great, they showed up on time and finished quickly."
Chris S., Leesburg, Virginia
"The installation was perfect the first time and we are totally satisfied. They even called the next week to make sure we were happy."
In view of the excellent advice I think we received on the product, and the prompt installation, and the follow up courtesy call, I am happy to have selected Arctic Windows for this installation."
Warren C., Fairfax Station, Virginia
"I am very pleased with the service your company rendered in early August. Your prompt visit for the quote and then the prompt installation (which was exceptionally professional) helped me a great deal. I can't tell you how happy I am to get rid of the heat and UV rays in our rooms. It is now so comfortable to be in the kitchen and sunroom, and I no longer need to close the blinds! Thank you so much!"
Dawn P., Potomac, Maryland
"They knew their product extremely well, they were able to differentiate the grades of film to find the right one for our needs. They had a good sense of humor, walked us through the process and were very friendly. We are thinking about using their services for the rest of the house and my car. The owner even called us for a follow up to make sure that we were pleased with the service."
Gregory S., Ellicott City, Maryland
"The experience was very positive and deserves a solid A rating across all categories of quality and service. The initial call back occurred within 24 hours and an estimate was promptly provided which outlined a range of quality and pricing options. Our house has a large number of over sized windows and we selected the premium product option and decided to do the entire house."
"The installation was scheduled within a week of our decision date and was completed in a single day. The two installers were courteous and professional and we are very satisfied with the end result. We haven't received our next electric bill yet to verify energy savings although the AC unit appears to not be kicking in as frequently as it had been, in spite of the warmer temperatures. I highly recommend Arctic Window Tinting to anyone considering this type of service."
Rob K., Alexandria, Virginia
"Arctic made recommendations from its product line based on my particular concerns, e.g., fading. Before closing on the deal, I consulted with the owner, Bob Seidner, who actually made another suggestion which was less expensive —the C-60— but still addressed the fading issue, so I used that product. On Friday of that week, the installer came over and applied the film in about an hour. You cannot even see the film on the windows yet right away, I could feel a difference in the amount of glare. I am looking forward to another benefit - a/c cost reduction —as the film keeps much heat out. The cost savings was not my objective but I appreciate the added benefit. If I were staying here in this house for many years to come, I would have this film based on Huper Optik technology applied to every window in my house."
Marion J., Great Falls, Virginia
"Our first experience with Arctic Windows was January 2012, then again in June 2012. They are a super company to deal with - as far as their product and their customer service. We have an end-unit townhouse with the back facing toward the afternoon and evening sun. The first time, Bob came and provided an estimate for all the back windows (6 large + 2 medium) on our 2d and 3d levels plus a sliding glass door with transom. He was extremely knowledgeable of the product and helped me pick the right film. Jay came a couple of days later and very effectively/efficiently completed the installation, to include complete clean-up. He even kindly dealt with a newly rescued and very scared cat we had living in our upper bedroom."
"Though the Huper Optik film is a bit pricey, I can tell you now that the quality, appearance, and effectiveness is worth the price. We were so happy with the initial installation and effectiveness of the product that I called Bob in June to arrange to have the front windows done (4 large + 2 transom + 4 medium). Jay once again completed the installation in a superb manner."
Danelle S., Alexandria, Virginia
"Ken, the installer, was on time, very courteous and very efficient. The job did not take as much time as I had thought it would and Ken cleaned up afterwards. There are no defects and you can not tell anything was done. I am very happy with the whole experience and would recommend Arctic Window Tinting to anyone who wants to reduce their energy bill."
Anne R., Columbia, Maryland
"We had not moved in yet so now was the perfect time to get the windows tinted. We have 20 plus windows in the house. Did my research here and determined that Arctic Window Tinting was the company we needed."
"Called Bob and we set up an appointment at the house. Made it simple, we wanted the darkest, most heat reflective film they had. Bob did the measurements and gave us an estimate on the spot. We set up the appointment for the installation which was for the following week."
"Jay and Ken arrived on time at 8:30 A.M. Very punctual, professional and friendly. They did an outstanding installation job. Moved the drapes out of the way, very clean, very professional. They finished up around 2:30 p.m. The window film is some of the best on the market.
Outstanding job and I'd recommend this company to anyone."
Rob K., Alexandria, Virginia
"The whole process was easy from start to finish. They came out to give us a free estimate. They were friendly, helpful, and informative. The work was scheduled for about a week later. The 2 men showed up on time and were extremely efficient, it only took them about 45 minutes total to do the installation. We are happy with the results, because now we can actually eat dinner at our kitchen table without feeling like we are in a sauna. They did a professional job and installed the film properly without any blemishes, bubbles, etc. My husband and I had previously bought window film at a home improvement store, tried to install it ourselves, found out how tedious it was, and realized it was a job for professionals!! Overall, we were very happy with this company."
K., Germantown, Maryland
"I have used Arctic twice. They tinted all of our first floor windows on our house.
They were prompt, professional and clean."
C. P., Lorton, Virginia
"The films changed the feel of the living room for us and has made it more inviting for us during the day, even with the giant windows. We even bought a new couch and would never have spent that much money without knowing we'd have protection for it, especially after seeing what happened to our old leather couch! The minute they left, it was noticeably different and much better. And those skylights in the bathroom were like magnifying glasses! Now it's much more comfortable for my wife to put on her makeup in there. Seriously, it's made a big difference for us."
David B., North Potomac, Maryland
"I was very impressed with them. It was an excellent job. I didn't compare pricing but the price seemed very reasonable."
Pat A., Arlington, Virginia
"They were very good and gave an appropriate estimate. They explained everything in detail and made some recommendations. They were punctual and followed up efficiently. They installer was very careful and personable. They did a great job and I will continue to use them in future."
Paul S., Severn, Maryland
"I called for a quote and the sales person came the same day. The sales person seemed knowledgeable and was not pushy. Because of the good reviews on Angie's List, I didn't got any other quotes. The sales person got the install scheduled before she left. The install was two days later. The technicians were professional and did a good job. I'm happy with the whole experience and would use them again if I needed more windows tinted."
Ann S., Glenwood, Maryland
"They did a great job from start to finish. When I initially called them and left a message, the machine said they would return my call in an hour, and they did. The owner made an appointment to meet with meet with me in 1-2 days (I forget how quickly). Because an earlier time worked best for us, he called the morning of the appointment, saying that he had rearranged his schedule to come a little earlier and asked if that would be ok - and then arrived 5 minutes early. He asked us about our needs (glare reduction, furniture protection, etc.) and then recommended specific tints, showing us samples which he taped to a window. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions, with details about each film. We made an appointment that day to get the tinting completed 2 weeks later. The installer arrived 5 minutes early, was professional and clean, and answered my questions. ...Overall, a very good experience!"
Ruth W., Ellicott City, Maryland
"Wonderful from start to finish."
Peter M., Herndon, Virginia
"The workers were very nice. I really liked them. I have already recommended them to my next-door neighbor. They were great."
William T., Leesburg, Virginia
"The estimate was right on track. They worked quickly to get the job done properly. They were on time and cleaned up after the job was done. They answered any questions I had about the windows and the installation process."
Sanjoy S., Burtonsville, Maryland
"I called three different companies to discuss residential window tinting and possible installation. The first company never returned my call; the second suggested scheduling an in-home visit 2 weeks down the road. Then there was Arctic Window Tinting. I spoke to Bob Seidner, who answered the phone himself and who happens to be the President of the company. He said he could stop by the very next day and he did. Right on time. We discussed various options, the differences in film and the specific windows around the house that I wanted tinted. He gave me an estimate, which was very reasonable, and we set a date for the following week for installation. Jay, Bob's installer, showed up right on schedule. He was personable, thoroughly professional and efficient and extremely meticulous as he went about his work. He’s very good at his job."
"It's not very often one finds this quality of service nowadays. I would definitely recommend Arctic Window Tinting to anyone interested in reducing glare, decreasing unwanted energy transfer or saving on energy costs."
Maria G., Arlington, Virginia
"I was amazed that the Huper Optik film eliminated all of the excessive heat. I can hardly see it on my windows"
Ted K., Potomac, Maryland
"They came out and explained the film options to cut glare and reduce heat in our family room and bedrooms. The work was scheduled for one week later, the installers arrived on time, finished quicker than expected, and did an excellent job."
Patricia F., Clarksville, Maryland
"Bob, the owner, called us back soon after emailing him. He came over a few days later and patiently went over our options, trying to find the best option in tinting our large windows in a double height living room. He discouraged us from spending too much money. He started the project the next week and finished it in a day. Room is much cooler now."
"It was great to interact with an owner directly and find him engaged, honest and professional. Highly recommend him!"
Alison P., Chevy Chase, Maryland
"He arrived when schedule & estimated his finish time and was exactly right. It was an experience you seldom have - first visit immediately happened after call. The scheduled date for work was kept and the person installing was knowledgeable and nice. Overall - I would rate these folks A+"
Thomas H., Washington, DC
"Found the company on Angie's List. We were looking for window film because our family room gets so much sun in the summer that the AC has a hard time keeping up. Bob, the owner, was very responsive and flexible in meeting our schedule. He sold us on the Huper Optik product. We struggled to find our personal balance between blocking heat but not darkening the room. At the time, Bob had a great deal on the Ceramic 50, so we opted for that since it was lighter looking (with the trade-off that it doesn't block as much heat as the other product we were considering)."
"We've been very pleased with how professional, prompt, and courteous Bob and Jay, our installer, have been. The film looks great – you'd never know it's there except the outside world looks crisper than before (because of the glare reduction)."
Rachel P., Clarksville, Maryland
"Bob the owner was very punctual on his appointments. Honored a 10% Angie's discount on the order. The installers were also punctual and professional. They worked hard to get the job done and cleaned up well. No problems or hassles."
Drew L., Potomac, Maryland
"...the end product is perfect. I recommend this merchant to anyone."
Gregory S., Fulton, Maryland
"I was referred to Arctic by a friend, and am very happy that I used them. Not only were they professional, and gave me all sides of the equation information-wise, they performed the services I purchased and followed up after to make sure that I was satisfied. I am so happy with the tinting and the quality of service I received from Arctic and would recommend them again."
Lynn H., Arlington, Virginia
"I had Vista film on my windows previously. It was so dark and distorted that my beautiful view was ruined. At first I was skeptical about the Huper Optik product, however, once it was installed I couldn't even see it on my windows! I was able to keep my view and protect my antiques at the same time."
Connie G., Dickerson, Maryland
"Got company name from Angie's List. Called and made appointment for rep to come to my home to show product samples and provide info. Liked what we saw and heard. Made appointment for installation 2 days later. Installers arrived on time, did the job with total professionalism, cleaned up from the installation work and left 3 hours later."
Harold S., Olney, Maryland
"I contacted the company via phone and spoke with the President, Bob Seidner, who provided me with detailed information regarding the different products his company installs and specifically asked my needs, i.e. glare, insulation, fading etc. Bob made an appointment to come to our home when my husband was available. Bob is focused on good customer service and provided that service from beginning to end. Phone calls to confirm appointments, installation etc. We felt very confident that the products presented to us would be the answer to our concerns (our choice, which made the price higher than anticipated)."
"The company installed the products in a new sunroom addition with many windows and also three of our living room windows. The installers arrived on time and finished earlier than predicted. They were courteous and very respectful of our home and made certain I fully understood the care and maintenance of the product. We were provided with an extensive folder of information at the estimation appointment. Clean-up was meticulous. We could not have asked for a more professional company from beginning to end. Thanks, Bob, for your commitment to excellence!"
Glenn B., Oak Hill, Virginia
"It was a great experience. I actually called them because of their reviews... and I wasn't disappointed. They came out and did the estimate and were straight-forward and helpful. It wasn't a "sales job," but more of them listening and then matching their services to what I wanted. The saleswoman was very pleasant and thorough. The guy, and I didn't catch his name, did a terrific job installing the film, it's done on the inside after they clean the windows. He was personable and informative as well as professional and efficient, and he cleaned up and made sure everything was OK before he left. I am thinking about doing more windows in our house and I would give them an A+ rating."
Sarah M., Montgomery Village, Maryland
"The saleswoman came and provided an estimate within hours of my call. She explained the product alternatives and how it would be installed in detail. She also explained in detail how the cost estimate was done. We contracted on the spot and she set an installation date and time. The installer came on time and completed the work quickly, professionally, and carefully. I cannot imagine a better experience."
Albert T., Rockville, Maryland
"I was very pleased with every step of the process. The estimator and installation crew were extremely professional. They all arrived exactly on time and did an excellent job."
Bruce M., Potomac, Virginia
"It went very well. Their representative showed up on time, for the estimate. She was very polite and knowledgeable about her product. The frosted glass on the front door is an excellent privacy solution for us."
Lori C., Chevy Chase, Maryland
"This was a great experience. They were quick, efficient and on time! Bob was delightful to work with, and the guys who did the work were great, too. The difference in my sun room was amazing, especially in the winter with all the leaves off the trees that provide shade."
Ellen P., Washington Grove, Maryland
"Everything from when they answered my call to their follow- up after the installation— far exceeded my expectations. It's very rare to find this quality of service today! I would definitely recommend Arctic Window Tinting to anyone interested in window tinting"
Ed G., Sterling, Virginia
"They did an excellent job. They helped us decide what type of tinting would be best for our house. They did a quick job and I would definitely recommend them."
Monisha P., Rockville, Maryland
"The workmen arrived on time, and were kind, responsive, and were flexible as to appointment time. The work was well done, and the price was O. K. We are happy with the tinting placed on our windows, and appreciate their effect even though it is a year later. Overall, the company we dealt with was very responsive and professional."
Pamela O., Bethesda, Maryland
"Now I can sit comfortably in my kitchen and family room without having to close the blinds. I'm really looking forward to saving money on my energy bills and protecting my furnishings from sun damage. It looks great on the windows and my friends and family can't even tell it's there."
Lauren P., New Market, Maryland
