Solar tint nate. Not very dark but it is reflective. Worth every cent. You couldn't sit in my lounge room in the afternoon during summer. Its nice and cool now.

Its not too hard to do yourself. Ive done it in my old house and doesnt require any special tools. I was surprised how easy it is. A roll on ebay is about $100-300 depending on quality. The trick to butting up the film is to overlap it then cut straight down the overlap and pull out the excess. Perfect joins everytime. Oh and a super sharp razor.

I wasn't the one that installed it on our house, but it does have it and I think I'd certainly do it on any future house. Keeps it cool and in an estate, the one way tint adds a lot of privacy

Nah, we just have a few of those tree things sprouting up all around the place.
They seem to work. Kinda.

Yep..had it done when the house was built. Used film on the windows but not on the doors as it would scratch and look shyt. Much cooler, private and stops furniture from getting hammered by the sun.

If you decide to do it yourself the main thing is to give windows and seals a really good clean so do t get dirt caught up. Can get safety film too which can take bit longer to dry.
It's easier to do than the new pathfinder as need to break the inside door handles to get door trims off.

A year or two after moving into this place I did the window tint and 2 whirly birds, together they made 5c difference in my place up here on the Sunny Coast, I have floor to ceiling windows around the living room facing East and North,

Get the chit that reduces the sound as well as the heat. :idea:

Double glazing might be what you're thinking of Foo.
Meant to be great for stopping heat transfer (Heater has to work less in Winter, aircon works better in Summer) as well as the sound thing. Prolly what Mic would want to get, since the tinting would stop the Winter sun having any benefit at all.

Not quite what your looking for, but will add in case anyone else searches the subject -

We have Veridian ComfortPlus Grey 40 glass on all N, E & W facing windows. Can't say it's made a difference because it was a new build and have no 'before' (except standard 20yo glass, which is really poor in terms of heat retention/reflection) to compare to, but the heat reflection is significant and easily helps meet the required energy efficiency rating for new buildings. It's double laminated (not double glazed), 6.4mm thick and is tinted enough that you can't quite see in during the day. http://www.viridianglass.com/Products/comfortplus/default.aspx?ProductType=GlassTrade

Hope that helps!
