JWF, How Long Does It Take?

How Long It Takes

How long will it take to remove old window film? That all depends on a number of factors including the type of film you are removing, the age of the film, and the location of the window(s). Also keep in mind you could be on a ladder 12 feet off the floor.

Here is a break down of the average time involved in removing standard pressure sensitive, security pressure sensitive, and dry adhesive films from three average size flat glass windows. Note: When using the "sweat" method, add 45-90 minutes.

Fifteen minutes
