Now sit back, read along and see how many of these common problems apply to you. If there are some you haven't considered before - rejoice - there is your bonus! We'll then reveal the one simple fix.
Your savings, or lack of thereof
With bright sun comes warmth, which can be very welcome during the cold winter months. But in the summer it can wreak havoc on your AC. Do you feel like you want to cry a little (or a lot) every time your energy bill comes? Surely you have better ideas for spending that money. This solution can help you lower those pesky bills and fill that piggy bank.
Unless your house is naturally private, say perched on a hill or with no neighbors for miles; you probably crave some privacy. This mystery improvement can help right away. Similarly, when you want to take in the view, it will quietly and quickly disappear.
Your Sunday football viewing
Who doesn't love big windows that bring in tons of light? This is until sun glare makes you miss the winning touchdown.

If you want to prevent the glare and the damaging UV rays from entering your home, there is one easy answer.
Your spooky shadows
Big, bare windows are wonderful during the day with light streaming in, but what about at night? Bid goodbye to big, black windows in the evening and don't be scared of who or what may be lurking in the darkness.
