My Expertise
I'm Alex Draeger, and I am the Owner of Therma Shield Solar Control. I started tinting windows in Spokane in 1989 for Tintsulation, Inc. When the Owner retired in early 1994, I struck out on my own--founding Therma Shield in April of that year. It has been a long and rewarding journey, and I am proud to say that I have more flat glass window film installation experience than any other window tinter in the area currently installing film.

My lovely bride, Laura, started working for me in 2009 as a window prepper--working ahead of me getting windows sterile and ready for installation of the film. Apparently, she liked the business enough to marry me in 2011, thereby becoming Co-Owner. Although I sometimes question her taste in men (just kidding honey), I have no doubt about her determination to provide you the best film installation possible.

Questions & Answers
Q: What advice would you give to a customer looking to hire a company like yours?
A: 1. MAKE SURE THE COMPANY UNDER CONSIDERATION IS LICENSED, BONDED, AND INSURED: Visit the company's website and check to see that it's licensing, bonding, and insurance information is prominently displayed. It should be, and if it is not, this is obviously a huge red flag. In case of problems with your installation, lack of licensing and bonding leaves you with little legal recourse. In any case, you should check for yourself as some companies have been known to fake licensing information on their sites. 2. DIG DEEP: Now that you’re ready to talk to a window tinting company, make sure you dig deep into its capabilities. Ask questions such as: How long have they been in business? Do they offer Materials and Workmanship warranties? How much experience do their installers have? What is their Customer Service Policy? What makes them stand out from their competitors? Do they have references from previous customers? These, and any other questions you might have about them, are fair and justified - after all, it is your money. Sadly, it needs to be mentioned that certain local window film companies make performance claims for their films and/or manufacturer warranties that are just not true. The old adage is true - if a claim sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't. If in doubt check with the manufacturer. Lastly, as a general rule, if a window film salesman for a given company spends more time telling you why you shouldn't use their competitors rather than how they are different or better than their competitors, you probably don't want to do business with them...

Q: What is the most common type of project or service your company provides?
A: Our most common project is installing Residential and Commercial Solar Control window films to address excessive heat gain, glare, and UV fading through the windows, closely followed by installation of Daytime or 24 Hour Privacy films to enhance privacy, Interior or Exterior Decorative films to beautify your windows, and Safety or Security window films to prevent "smash and grab" burglaries at your home or business.

A: We are passionate about treating you the way that we like to be treated. To us, that means treating you with honesty and integrity, promptly returning calls or emails, showing up at the time and date agreed upon, and doing the best possible window tint installation for the agreed upon price. I am sure that you will be delighted with your window film, but if you are not--for any reason--I will work with you until you are. I back up my work with a "no questions asked" unlimited transferable lifetime workmanship warranty, and our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.

A: 1. The highest quality window film installations in the Pacific Northwest 2. Outstanding customer service 3. Providing the above items at the most reasonable price in the area-guaranteed!

Q: What separates your company from the competition?
A: Hands-down, the biggest difference is my 28+ years of flat-glass window film installation experience.

Q: Does your company offer a warranty or guarantee?

Solar Gard, Panorama, and AWSF films come with a 5 year Glass Breakage, 3 year Seal Failure Warranty. These warranties are limited only in that they are not transferable. Therma Shield Solar Control offers an Exclusive Unlimited Transferable Lifetime Workmanship Warranty against lifting, peeling, bubbling, or other workmanship defects on any film installed by Therma Shield. WE ALSO OFFER A LOW-PRICE GUARANTEE. Because my overhead is lower, I can usually offer my clients the most reasonable price in the area. If one of my legitimate competitors bids the same work at a lower price, just show me their bid, and I will beat their price by 5%... ...AS WELL AS A 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE. I will give you the benefit of my knowledge and many years of experience to help you select the window film that best meets your needs. I will do the best quality installation possible, utilizing time-tested techniques that result in a truly superior end-product, therefore Therma Shield offers a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.

About Us  
No job too big...or too high!  

Some window film jobs feature beautiful view windows that are high in the air, and we've spent our share of time over the years on top of 14 and 16 foot step ladders. There are some jobs though, like this one, that require the use of a man lift. No problem. These homeowners selected ASWF Horizon 20 Bronze to resolve their heat and glare issues, and were super happy with the result - 80% reduction in radiant heat, 80% reduction in glare, and 99% reduction in UV "fade" Rays.
About Us Image 1

Situation - Case and Jamie's beautiful Lewiston, Idaho home features large upper and lower West facing windows that give gorgeous sunset views, but the blazing afternoon sun turned those windows into a source of discomfort for Case and his family. Blinding glare, oppressive heat and furniture-fading UV rays were a near-constant presence. Jamie related that they tried to address their solar issues by installing expensive wood blinds, but found that they were a less than ideal solution. The blinds hid their view and blocked out the natural light, and in addition, the heat would build up between the windows and blinds and turn them into radiators, so they went in search of a better solution.??

Solution - Therma Shield Solar Control helped transform Case and Jamie’s beautiful Lewiston home into the comfortable retreat it was designed to be. After a phone call and an email estimate, Case and Jamie studied the various samples and selected ASWF Horizon 20 Bronze to solve their issues.

Providence Health in Spokane turned to Therma Shield Solar Control when they needed decorative film for one of their newly remodeled waiting areas.

They browsed the over 500 different films that Solyx offers and selected Solyx "Structure" decorative film for their glass partition and were ecstatic with the results.
How We Charge For Our Services
Building Window Tinting - Install
- $5.00 to $9.00 per square foot (basic solar film)
- $7.00 to $10.00 per square foot (security film)
Each installation price will vary slightly because there are many variables that affect the pricing.

Having said that, because of our low overhead, we can generally offer the most reasonable price in the area (See information on our Low-Price Guarantee, above).

The Sunny Side

The back side of my house is a SW exposure. Two bedrooms, kitchen and large sliding glass door. I had the sliding door film installed by the pros and then did the smaller windows myself since I enjoy DIY projects. They cut the film for me which made the job much easier. Tricks I learned: Windows must be 100% clean, be patient, lots of soapy water, the film does not dry instantly, you have time to work with it. Great service, great products. Looking fwd to saving on A/C costs next summer.

The Best job ever.

We think the house is alot cooler. it is like having a cloudy day now outside. They were VERY Professional in every aspect of the install. They started at 8:30 Am and finished at 3:38pm and did 31 window. cleanup was the best. They were the nicest people and were like having old friends in my home. I would give them 20 stars out of 10. They installed slate 10. very good.

Alex and Laura care about the quality of their work

Alex and Laura are genuine people who care about the quality of work they do. They took every precaution to ensure the interior of our home was protected as they worked, and the film on our windows looks great. The level of communication we received while selecting the type of film for our home, and during the installation, was stellar. We look forward to working with them when we're ready to have the remaining windows done.

I would use them again

They were prompt with return calls and showed up when they said they would. The product they used hasn't been on for too long but it appears to be doing the job very well. I would definitely use them again.

Great product, great people!

My husband and I are very pleased with both the product of Therma Shield and the customer service provided. We had 9 floor to ceiling windows covered plus 2 triangular windows at the top of our sunroom. Although it still gets quite warm in the room, we can at least sit there much more than we could before when it has been in the 90's. The glare is significantly reduced, which is a great improvement, as well. We were extremely pleased with the professionalism and friendliness of the Draeger team. They were so thorough and fastidious and worked with our schedule. We would definitely recommend them!

My overall experience was wonderful

My overall experience was wonderful. I received a large packet of information prior to the install that answered all of my questions. When they came to my house they were extremely friendly and very respectful. They even took the time to explain to my curious children what they were doing. I felt they had a genuine concern to ensure that I was a satisfied customer. The end result of the product is better than I thought and I have already booked them for additional windows. I would absolutely recommend their service.

Thermasheild, professional proprietors & great product!

Alex and Laura were very professional in all our interactions. We had film installed on our lake cabin windows that received hot afternoon sun. The glare created so much heat it would literally melt food left on the kitchen counter! Our first afternoon after the film was installed, we could immediately feel the difference. The countertops weren't even warm. Thank you, Alex and Laura, for an easy process and great product, we are so pleased!

Great company

Great company! From first correspondence to completion of the work, Alex was very professional and accommodating. I'm very pleased with the product and the install. A small family company that understands the value of customer service and quality workmanship.

The Greatest! Would recommend to anyone!

We couldn't be happier with the service that Alex and Laura Draeger provided. Always professional, explained the product in detail and what it would do to help us with our needs to make our home more efficient at heating and cooling year round. We have had the solar shield on our windows, throughout our entire home, for over a year and the difference it makes cannot be beat. I would recommend their service and product to anyone! One of the best investments we have made in our home in the last 20 years.

I would highly recommend Therma Shield …

I would highly recommend Therma Shield for your residential window solar control needs. Alex and Laura were very professional, from first contact through final cleanup. We were especially appreciative of the list of residential references they sent us, as well as business locations where we could actually see the different films installed before making a final decision. They accomplished the work in a timely manner and it looks fantastic! We noticed the difference in room temperature on west facing windows the first afternoon, and the increased daytime privacy is an added benefit. I would not hesitate to hire them again; in fact, will probably have them back soon!
