Solar Control Glass Tinting Co. eliminates the effects of sun over-exposure for residential and commercial properties throughout Northern California, from single-family homes to high-rise multiplexes. In addition to window tinting, it provides solutions for graffiti, eavesdropping security and safety issues. Other services include decorative interior and exterior glass applications.
Owner Rocky Burcham has seen the industry evolve from the days when tinting was done with liquids to the modern process of applying film. Solar film lets glare-controlled sunlight pass through windows while screening out heat and dangerous UV rays, he says. Bonding the film to the glass creates a barrier that protects against flying glass shards if the window is shattered. It also makes glass more difficult to break, which adds the element of security. Films with anti-graffiti surfaces protect against vandalism, while decorative films can mimic the appearance of expensive etched glass.
Solar Control Glass Tinting Co. provides free in-home estimates and samples of film. The company’s website offers case studies from previous jobs and extensive information about its licensing and qualifications.
“Like our products, our personnel are top-quality. Many have been with us for 20 years or longer. All our employees take pride in a job well done. Excellent products and excellent service are the reasons so many Bay Area clients choose us again and again.”

Reduce Fade, Heat & Glare
Most consumers, designers and business owners have little experience with solar glass tinting, so do your homework before you buy.
When looking for a contractor for specialized services such as window tinting, it’s important to educate yourself and find a company you trust. The only real way to accomplish that, says Rocky Burcham of Solar Control Glass Tinting Company, is...

"I would recommend them. I think it will make a significant difference on your PG&E bill. We had a huge job where they did the whole house, and we have a huge amount of windows. We were very happy with them.""They came out most recently because our house had been robbed and a couple of windows had been broken. We needed to replace them. I was very happy that they still had our information from 10 years ago and were able to match the window to the replacement. They were very responsive. They got out here and got the work done. Over the years, I've been very happy to have it done, because it has really saved us money on our PG&E bill. "
"We have recommended them to our next door neighbor. We were prefectly satisfied with everything about the product.""The product itself but also the salesperson was knowledgeable and gave us a very candid assessment of the product."
"I would show them before and after pictures of what the windows look like on my shop and they look as good as new. All of the tinting did the trick to remove any scratches.""It is so easy to clean and to maintain. I was pleased with the price quote."

"I'd recommend them. They do good work.""They know what they're doing and they're punctual."

"They are very reliable and I am happy with them.""They are very reliable."
"The tinting cuts down on the heat and the fading of the leather and fabric. And it's nice that it doesn't have that mirrored look. You can hardly see any difference looking at it from the outside.""It was so easy to work with them and they did such a nice job. I was very happy."

"I have recommended them to my sister. It was very simple to use them.""They were good at explaining my options, they were professional, and there were no surprises."
