    Want to utilize some space that gets sunny in the afternoons, will window tint UV protected be enough to stop fading?

    yes, I did my game room 6 years ago and have zero fade on my Judge Dredd which is known to fade.....

    Yes!

    Yes, it will help but will not stop fading 100%. It will be a great reduction though!

    Cool more open wall space.

    How do you tint the windows in your game room? DIY or hire? How?

    DITO, the real good stuff is great.

    Before I got new double pane windows installed back in 2010, I used the Gila privacy/energy saving film for my old 70's windows and it did a pretty good job reflecting heat and blocking UV rays during the hot summer months.
    (It was super easy to install too...)
    Definitely recommended for older single pane windows; they have a variety of finishes to choose from as well. If you have the newer double or triple pane windows, you already have pretty good UV protection so I'd just add some thermal curtains and call it a day.

    My house was built in 2001 so I would assume I'd be ok then. Thanks

    I have no choice but to put my pins near windows, so I installed window tint. It's real easy to do, FYI.

    On this topic, I just bought some Green Film for a room in the back of the house that has several windows (after moving my pins up from the basement)....

    Got it on Amazon - was easy to install and is removable...says it blocks 99% of UV and 85% of IR...has 73% light transparency.....
