In 2008, Martin Faith founded Scottish Window Tinting. Earlier that year, he had experimented with installing window film for his own home and soon after became extremely impressed by its amazing energy saving and UV protection benefits. After realizing that this one simple fix was able to drastically cut down his heating and cooling costs and at the same time protect his hardwood floors, he was sold. He then decided to offer the same products to fellow homeowners throughout Texas and established offices in Dallas and Fort Worth. Due to a vast amount of company expansion that occurred later on, Window Film Austin was born.
