(Case Study | Window Tinting New Orleans ) Before they contacted us, Saint Andrew the Apostle School in New Orleans was using blue-patterned glass from the 1960’s in their classrooms and cafeteria. The old, blue glass had been installed before window film was readily available, and now they were ready to upgrade to a modern window tinting solution.
The New Orleans school, founded in 1953, had just brought on a new principal and pastor, and wanted to make some renovations to their facility before the students returned for the fall semester. So, we had a very strict 2-week time frame to complete what turned out to be a challenging, complex project.
This wasn’t a simple window tint removal and installation project, as we had to actually remove and replace the windows themselves. The old, patterned blue glass made it impossible to install exterior window film because of the texture on the outside surface. Furthermore, the only way to truly replace the blue appearance was to remove and replace the glass.
Some of the windows had a very old purple/blue window tint that had been faded and delaminated for many years. We removed all of the old tint, and pulled all of the blue glass panes. Then, we installed clear glass to the classroom and cafeteria windows, applying modern window products with much better glare and heat reduction properties, improving the energy efficiency of the building.
We also greatly improved the aesthetic appearance of the windows, updating them from a 1960’s style purple/blue textured glass. Despite the challenge of having to remove and replace all of the windows in addition to applying window tint, we were able to complete the project before the end of the summer break, within the school’s budget.
