    "Hi Marek Thank you for the opportunity to be of service again and for your great review. I was pleased to be able to offer the upgrade to the new ceramic film. When the time allows I will be using it in a couple of rooms at our place."

    "Thank you for the opportunity to be of service. It was good to revisit the standard offerings and find a film that better suited your needs. The manufacturers had redesigned the product and it's good to know I have a great match to opal glass now."

    "David may be an experienced applicator of window film but his performance is not recommended when it comes to replacing film and matching. I had a difficult job which required him to match existing film because his price to replace it was so expensive - $155 /sq m + GST.Because of the price I only had film replaced on windows that needed it due to the film breaking down therefore matching was a problem. He also damaged my wooden floor which now needs replacing with cost to me to get adjacent rooms replaced because the flooring cannot be matched.

    I contacted him 3 times over the course of the contract and although he turned up the first time promptly he never sent me the quote he promised. I contacted him a second time and he tried to match the film - and still no quote. When I contacted him the third time (6 months later) he turned up and had the wrong film for the job. He gave me a quote per metre when on the job. There were several hold ups through the job for personal reasons but he was always late although the quote did not appear to be related to the time spent. All in all I would not recommend this owner operator to remove and replace film.
    "
    David McDowell responded:
    "Thank you for your feedback it's all useful good or otherwise. You have highlighted issues around communications which is a constant challenge and can always be improved. In the feedback, there are misrepresentations around the flooring which was already failing and you mentioned you had already spoken to a repairer. I used towels to absorb any overspray and a tarpaulin under my equipment. At the outset when I viewed the existing film I observed that the hard-coat was failing. This is a progressive issue and will affect all the existing film, making it impossible to clean without further damage. And when I asked for any information as to the film type, manufacturer, installer and date installed you advised me none of this was available. We are window film installers but do provide a film removal service at a fixed charge of which you were advised at the beginning. Film removal is a slow task using specialised equipment and has to be meticulous when a new film is being installed afterward. After a lot of research and testing, it turned out the original film had been discontinued by the manufacturer over 15 years ago. This film had Titanium as the filter which is not used anymore making the appearance impossible to match exactly. The film removal was meticulous, the film match was very good and the installation standard high. And the final invoice was heavily discounted and didn't reflect the time and materials used on the job. Please consider all the other reviews posted here"

    "David did a wonderful job of safely removing the old film on our large front window. The old glass looks brand new again. David was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to remove existing window film, or install window film to their exisiting windows.
    Thanks David, we are very happy with the results. Cheers, Sandy (Wellington)

We are very pleased with the result and have no hesitation in recommended his work."

Once we accepted the quote, he was available within 1-2 weeks to install the film. David is friendly and easy going and very professional. The windows look fantastic. Much better than windows we have had done previously from another company."

    Not cheap, but the window insulation appears to have made a difference already to the temperature.

    "We needed some privacy into our living/kitchen area after a change of ownership on the neighbours property and having tinted windows in the house some years back this seemed the best option as we still love the outlook and didn't want to loose it. The company we originally used are no longer about, so I contacted David through a mutual contact, he supplied a price and recommended a product without even seeing it.
    Once given the go head, it was installed promptly and we are all really happy with the final product.
