There’s more to know about window film than you might think, which is why you want an expert on your side when you’re considering installing window tint on the windows of your Houston-area home or business.

We sat down with Victor Giron — a 22-year veteran at Fine Line Glass Tinting — to learn why your window film installer matters and what he likes best about his job.

Q: What’s your role at Fine Line Glass Tinting?

Victor: As an installer, the first thing I do each morning is to get the paperwork for all the jobs we’re going to do that day. Next, I pull the right window film for all the jobs and make sure we have all the supplies we need. I’m joined on each job by at least two other partners — sometimes we have three or four. They prepare the windows and cut the film, and I install it. But before I install it, I talk with the customer to answer any questions and double-check both the windows and the product.

Q: What do you like most about what you do?

Victor: I love the feeling that every day, I’m doing the best job I can for my customers. I enjoy making them confident in their decision to choose Fine Line Window Tint for their window film. I enjoy answering their questions, but most of all, I just like to make them happy.

Q: How did you join Fine Line Glass Tinting?

Victor: A friend of mine heard from Marty (Johnston, the owner) that he had a job opening. The friend said, “You’d like Marty. He’s a good guy. You’d like to work with him.” But I didn’t know much about tinting windows. I interviewed for the job anyway, and I did like him. So 22 years ago, I joined Fine Line Glass Tinting. I started by just learning how to prepare the windows for film. But after three months, Marty taught me how to apply tint. And I’ve been here ever since.

Q: What do you like about Fine Line Tint’s company culture?

Victor: I like them for their work ethic and their customer relationships. Marty taught me how to respect the customer and their privacy and has shown me the importance of doing the best work I can in their homes. I love talking with the customer about what I’m going to install and about our warranty — and I also make sure they’re happy.

Q: What’s the most important thing you think a customer should know about selecting window film?

Victor: It’s important that they do the research to identify the product that’s going to work best for what they need it to do. They should also make sure the film and the installer offer a good warranty.

Window tint can be expensive, so customers want to make sure they’re getting something that’s going to last, that does what it’s supposed to do, and that’s backed by the installer and the manufacturer.

They should also make sure the film and the installer offer a good warranty.

Q: What’s the most important thing you think a customer should know about selecting window film?

Victor: It’s important that customers do their research and work with a qualified installer to identify the products that will work best for their home to ensure they’re getting something that’ll perform and last.

Window film is an investment, so customers want to make sure they’re getting a quality product that does what it’s supposed to do, is correct for their application, and is backed by a good warranty from the manufacturer and the installer.

Q: What should customers know about selecting a window film installer?

Victor: I recommend finding a good company with solid reviews, a good warranty, and great customer service. A pro installer will explain things and will do the job right the first time. So experience makes a difference. A quality product makes a difference. Years of experience make a difference.

Q: What’s your best advice to a customer who’s looking to install window film at their home or business?

Victor: When you’re looking for the best window tint for your home or business, I recommend researching the name brands. I’ve always had good experiences with 3M products. That’s a very good product – it looks and works great and has a good warranty. Huper-Optik is also a very good brand with a large selection that performs really well. Veloce and Solyx are also quality films. But remember, even with the best film, if you have a bad install, the film won’t last.

Q: What’s something we might not know about you?

Victor: Before I worked with Fine Line Window Tint, I worked in a cafeteria as a cook for 10 years. I liked talking to the people and cooking. I still get to cook at home – my wife says I cook better than she does. But when the opportunity at Fine Line came up, I decided to take the challenge and do something different. And I love it.
