From the beginning to the end, this was a great experience. Vincent Jr come by the house and explained very clearly what was needed for the whole house tinting. The work was done in record time and the installers were very efficient. They left the place very clean and I don't have to do any cleaning after. The owner Vince all along the way kept in contact with me and was great in communication. After the job the windows looks great. I would highly recommend this company. If it is possible to give more stars, I would do so. Look no further for your whole house tinting needs.

We have large windows and sliding glass doors in our home. The guys came in and moved all the furniture, did a fantastic clean up and completed the entire house in record time. Everyone is very friendly and professional. I moved here last year and I feel like we have made the right choice selecting this family owned business...

I am not surprised to see that the overall rating for this company is a 5 ! I was shown the installation done recently in a neighbor’s home and was very impressed. As a prior reviewer stated, like his, my experience was terrific from start to finish ! Vince the estimator as well as Vincent and David the installers were professional in appearance, courteous, polite, neat, tidy and efficient ( they all 3 had immediately removed their shoes upon entering my home … hello ? Impressive and respectful ! ) I was ultra comfortable having them in my home which is key for many people ! Vince the estimator was honest in my home’s needs never indicating that I needed more than deemed necessary by my home’s sun exposure. That won my confidence ! Pricing was right on target and scheduling was efficient as well as the immediate satisfaction follow-up when the job was completed by Vincent the owner. ( Yes no typos here… 3 Vincents in total ! ) 👍🏻 Stellar experience and great to support a family owned and customer focused business !

Vince is probably the most knowledgeable person I have ever spoken to about window tinting for our home, and his team are among the most professional I have ever worked with. I am an engineer (by training) so I always want to understand the technical side of things. When it came time to have our new windows tinted, I did some networking and research, and quickly decided I wanted to use Vista films, which is what we had installed on our windows 15 years earlier. I met with one vendor at our house, but something did not seem quite right, so I found Vince's company on the Vista web site, and after speaking to him, I knew my gut had guided me to the right guy. His exclusive focus on "architectural" tinting (for residential and commercial buildings) really comes across, and he made sure to guide us to the best tinting option for our home. Most importantly, he took the time to explain the details of the various tinting options rather than any type of high pressure sales tactics. From initial engagement to installation to post install follow up, I was impressed with Vince and his company throughout. Do yourself a favor, and call Vince for your residential tinting project!

Had the best experience working with Southern Glass Protection! The owner and his son were a pleasure to work with when it came to scheduling our quote and the actual quoting process, the install team was able to come a week later to install our window film, they were respectful, on time, and did amazing work! We are so happy with how our window tint turned out and will keep them in mind for all future projects!

I am SO HAPPY that I “bumped into” this company! Both Vince and Vincent were highly professional and both a pleasure to communicate with. Everything was explained thoroughly and they were excellent with responding and communication…not easy to find these days! The workers who did the install worked so neatly/efficiently and my windows look SO NICE! I am OVERLY HAPPY about my purchase and would DEFINITELY recommend them 🙂 THANK YOU again!

From beginning to end this was a very pleasurable & professional experience & everyone involved inspired confidence. The presentation of the product & work to be done was explained clearly & competently by an affable young man, Vince. The installers, Vinny & David were skillful, efficient, & genial. If I could, I'd give Southern Glass Protection 10 stars.
This is one of those rare family-owned business with people who have years of experience and enjoy helping their customers. From the first phone call to the installation, everyone knew their stuff. They were professional, on-time, and texted before arrival. They know a lot about residential windows and take the time to explain it in layman’s terms. They are so good, we are scheduling more work with them.

Home Security Film

Home Security film in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea has become very popular for a few reasons.

Security film makes glass harder to break. Intruders have to use a lot more force and the resulting noise can give you more time to react.

Security film can reduce the speed at which an object enters your home or business.

Security film can also help with minor hurricanes and save lives by keeping the glass from windows and doors from becoming sharp projectiles when subjected to major forces.

Year-Round Window Film Energy Saving Window Film

No matter if your interest is lowering cooling and heating costs by reducing solar heat coming through windows, eliminating hot and cold spots, or preventing heat from escaping during the winter, Southern Glass Protection has an energy saving window film made especially for you.

Window film is applied to existing glass in your windows and doors in order to reduce peak demand during hot months, reducing the need for your air conditioner to run excessively to keep a comfortable temperature. Even just a few degrees in temperature reduction can have a dramatic reduction in energy costs. And low-e window films can help to retain heat in cooler months, lessening the need for heating.

Reduce Unwanted Heat and Glare with Window Tint in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea

Make Your Home Comfortable with Heat and Glare Reduction

Vista Heat Control Home Window Tinting can evenly distribute heat, reduce hot and cold spots, and improve overall comfort of your home all year long.

Did you know?

Most heat control window films feature ultra-thin layers of metal, which act as infrared (solar heat) reflectors or absorbers and visible light filters.  Don’t worry—these layers are so thin that they are transparent, so they block the heat but not your view. 


For Energy Savings & Heat and Glare Reduction in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, Look No Further than Southern Glass Protection

Window film not only provides heat control to create a comfortable home, it reduces glare caused by the sun’s rays. Daylight casts a harsh glare on your TV or computer, causing eye strain and interfering with viewing enjoyment. But there’s no need to draw the curtains to get rid of the glare.

Vista Heat Control Home Window Tinting provides a quick and affordable solution to get rid of distracting glare. Window film is more than just a tint; it’s an advanced technology which lets in natural light while reducing glare up to 87%, all while improving windows’ insulating properties.

Enjoy both views with window film for heat and glare reduction by Southern Glass Protection.

UV Window Protection Film

Blocks up to 99.9% Ultraviolet Rays

Did you know that the sun’s harmful rays are not stopped by untreated glass? Deep-penetrating Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays pass straight through glass into your home or office.
UVA rays account for 90% of the sun’s most damaging rays. These rays not only fade your flooring and furnishings, they damage your skin and contribute to wrinkles, photosensitivity, and even skin cancer.

You don’t hesitate to put on sunscreen when spending hours outside, but do you protect you and your family while indoors?

With one out of five Americans diagnosed with skin cancer, who wants to take a chance? You don’t have to live in fear anymore. Vista™ window film for sun protection with UV Shield™ technology was made specifically for indoor sun protection. And don’t worry—the film is microthin and distortion free, so you can enjoy your view without the UV.


UV Window Film Protection Received the Skin Cancer Seal of Recommendation

Vista window film for sun protection is recommended nationwide by physicians as a safe, preventative measure for patients with sun sensitivity, skin-related diseases, and skin cancer. And you can rest assured, because Vista carries the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation.

In fact, many pediatricians, cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and general practitioners nationwide have installed Vista UV Window Film protection in their homes and offices to protect themselves, their families, and their employees.

Don’t take unnecessary risks when it comes to your family’s health. Protect yourselves against harmful UV rays in your home by making Vista Window Film a part of your sun protection routine.

Residential Safety & Security Window Film

Protection for Your Home and Family

You always lock your doors and windows, but your windows’ glass is still the most vulnerable entry point in your home. Window breakage during severe storms and high winds can cause your family and your property significant damage. Protect your home with Vista™ Window Film from flying shards of glass—a major cause of injury and damage during and after storms and natural disasters like hurricanes.

Not only does Vista Safety and Security Film provide protection in severe weather, it can protect your family from accidental glass breakage or an intruder. Safety film holds glass securely in place if an impact should occur.

What Safety and Security Window Film Can do for Your Building

Help Deter Theft

Improve Shatter Resistance

Project Against Accidents

Reduce Blast Hazards

Reflect Heat

Block Uv Rays

Keeping people and property safe is the priority of LLumar® safety window films.

Window film creates an added impediment to illegal access by making a window more difficult to shatter and by holding glass firmly in the frame after impact. Southern Glass Protection can provide your home with an invisible barrier in your home against theft and intruders. And because Vista Safety and Security Window Film is micro-thin and invisible, you won’t even know it’s there—until it’s needed most.

Choose a cost-effective alternative to other, more intrusive protective measures. Southern Glass Protection will gladly educate you on the different levels of window safety which will best suit your home.

Energy Efficient Window Replacement Alternative

Energy Efficient Replacement Window Alternative

Rising energy costs may have you considering purchasing energy-efficient replacement windows. You may already know that most of a home’s energy is lost through windows, and as much as half of a home’s heating and cooling costs can be lost through non-energy efficient windows.

If your windows are damaged or deteriorating, they will still have to be replaced. Do your windows have any of the following?

  • Air or moisture leakage
  • Failed seals
  • Damaged Frames
  • Structural Damage

If so, window film installation won’t be a viable option. However, if you have windows still in good condition and your main goal is to increase energy efficiency, window film can be a cost effective replacement window alternative. Rather than spend thousands of dollars on replacement windows, you can enjoy reduced solar heat, lowered cooling costs, and increased energy savings at a fraction of the cost.

Professionally installed Vista™ Window Film can lower cooling costs as much as 50% at as little as one-tenth the cost of window replacement. You may also qualify for energy-saving tax credits.

Avoid Window Replacement with a Cost Effective Replacement Window Alternative

You can reduce your home’s wasted energy with energy-efficient window film. Not only that, you can lower your carbon footprint and help the environment: replacement low-e windows have a carbon footprint 128 to 267 times that of window film. Reduce your energy bill and avoid increasing landfill waste by choosing window film over replacement windows.

Low-e (or low-emissivity) films are best suited for cooler climates to conserve energy.


Neutral window films work to provide moderate heat rejection while keeping a soft, neutral appearance. Lighter versions are recommended for showrooms or high-visibility display windows.

Spectrally Selective

While remaining virtually invisible, Spectrally Selective Films work to let in desirable daylight while still blocking harmful UV rays and unwanted heat. Ideal for storefronts, commercial buildings, offices, and homes that require minimal light control with maximum heat rejection.


Dual-reflective films conserve energy, greatly reduce glare, and reject harmful UV light while still maintaining outside views. These films are shiny (reflective) on the outside in order to provide maximum heat rejection. The inside surface is less reflective in order to reduce interior reflection of artificial lighting after dark.


Maximum performance window film with very low interior and exterior reflectivity (shininess).


A clear window film designed to hold broken glass together in the frame if/when an impact occurs. It also helps slow an intruder’s entry through glass, giving your family or building occupants valuable time to get to safety.

Window Film and Window Tinting Benefits in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea

Cut Your Home Cooling Costs Up to 50%

The EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual in the US states that approximately half of a home’s utility bills are wasted because of loss of heat in the winter and heat gain in the summer through untreated windows. By choosing to tint your windows, you can significantly improve energy efficiency. A thin and virtually invisible layer of Vista window film can help you save up to 50% on cooling costs. Learn more about window film benefits.

Reduce Heat and Glare

How often do you have to close your blinds, shades, or draperies in order to be able to see your TV or computer screen the way it was meant to be seen? Not only does Vista home window tint block heat, it can reduce glare by up to 87%—just one of many window film benefits. Reduce eye strain and enjoy natural light while comfortably watching television or work on a computer. Southern Glass Protection uses Vista™ Window Film because it is ultra clear and distortion free, so you won’t even know it’s there.

Reduce the Effects of Harmful UV Rays

Have you ever seen faded patio furniture? The sun does the same thing to your interior furnishings if your windows are untreated. Flooring, furniture, and artwork fade due to the sun’s UVA and UVB rays passing through your windows. Vista™ Window Films block up to 99.9% of harmful UV rays, helping to protect your family from the cause of skin cancer and your furnishings from fading.

Protect Your Home and Family

Southern Glass Protection also offers Vista™ Safety Films to help you protect your home and family. When glass is broken in a natural disaster, accident, or by an intruder, shattered glass can pose an extra danger. But with transparent Vista™ Security Film, the glass is held in place should an impact occur, giving your family extra protection when it’s needed most.

Affordable Alternative to Replacement Windows

If your goal is to improve your home’s energy efficiency and your windows are still intact, window tinting provides an affordable alternative to window replacement. At just one-tenth the cost of replacement windows, professional window film installation is a viable energy solution.
