The life of stained glass window film ranges from three to 10 years. Durability of the material depends on the type of film used, where it is placed and how it is maintained.
Stained glass window film varies in material components. Venders offer vinyl or polyester material with or without sun-blocking components, and not all films contain adhesives. Films with adhesives tend to be more durable after installation, while non-adhesive films can be reused on different surfaces. Elements such as air moisture and temperature also affect the life of stained glass window film. Film that is exposed to frequent condensation tends to peel or fade over a shorter time period.
