The Problem-Solving Power of Window Film


Headquartered in New York City, Layr solves problems at the source with window film solution design and installation for commercial buildings and homes throughout the Northeast.



When Glass Creates
More Problems Than It Solves

Glass is a prominent feature in New York City buildings, inside and out. While glass adds to the beauty of a building and the dazzle of the city skyline, a building with lots of glass surfaces often has issues with visibility, excessive heat, glare, and energy costs. Not to mention, unfiltered sunlight can lead to rapid fading of furniture, flooring, artwork, textiles, and other valuables. Window film solves problems like these for both commercial buildings and residential properties.

Running a profitable building means attracting new tenants, keeping existing tenants comfortable, and managing energy costs. Making a beautiful, comfortable home that is also energy efficient is the goal of all homeowners. Layr aims to be the solution for all of these challenges.

I used Layr to install 3M window film in one room of my apartment. They were extremely professional and courteous throughout the whole experience. They returned calls and emails very fast, and even the guys who came for the actual install were really nice and professional. We are also extremely happy with the final product. The room is definitely cooler, and we haven’t lost any visibility out the window. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.
