When residential designer Dan Sater designed Casa de
Huevos II, a 12,200 square-foot home in Greenville,
Ohio, he used lots of windows to enhance the homes
grandeur. (This was the second home that Sater had designed
for the owners, who were in the poultry business
hence the name, which translates into House of Eggs
The homes two large flying gables top a three-story
wall of glass, creating unique rooflines that spark
tremendous visual interest from behind the property.
But while the windows added appeal to the home, they
were also a source of intense heat and glare by allowing
the suns rays to pour in. In addition, UV light
also threatened to damage the furnishings and decor.
The homeowners looked for a solution in the Yellow Pages
and selected RGJ Systems, Inc. of Dayton, Ohio because
they were a 3M-authorized Dealer / Applicator.
"We visited the home, surveyed the situation, and
showed them our window film samples," said RGJ
Systems owner, Richard Jennings. "They liked the
colors we had to offer and we were able to find one
that met all of their needs."
Jennings crew used RE50NEARL Scotchtint
window film, because it blocks up to 43% of the suns
heat without causing a noticeable difference in the
appearance of the windows.
With almost 900 square feet of glass to cover, installers
had to build extensive scaffolding to reach the three-story-high
windows. Jennings two-person crew completed the
project in two days.
Just two months after the installation, the homeowners
said they were pleased with the tremendous glare and
heat reduction and were thankful for the added protection
to their furnishings and decor.
"The owners had heard about 3M products and their
excellent reputation," Jennings said. "I think
they were impressed with the quality and consistency
of the 3M product. And the lifetime warranty shows that
3M is able to stand behind its products. When they checked
our companys references, I think it proved to
them that we were the right choice for the job."
