As a college student in College Station i cannot begin to wrap my "all -knowing" pompous college kid head around how earthshattering the damage from Ike is.
3m is a fortune 500 company that INVENTED window film 100 yrs ago. They have a product now that can withstand !!HURRICANE!! force winds. This stuff passed the Military small missile test and also acts as a UV protectant and security film.
My father, Eddy Russell, sells enough of the stuff to keep me in school and is THE LARGEST 3M DEALER IN TEXAS let alone the USA. Has been awarded 3M dealer of the year awards (That's national folks). flawless BBB record and has installed film on something like 50-60k homes in the houston area.
I HIGHLY suggest some of you who are already replacing glass take a look at
Sunset Glass Tinting: Hurricane Security Window Film
Sunset is my father's Houston based company and they've been in business since I've been born.
I do not plug this because I'm greedy or need money ... i do because this stuff is absolutely insane. It keeps glass from turning into shrapnel and destroying your home and has and will continue to save lives.
small missile test W/ film
If you are remotely interested please PM me and i'll get you information. If you aren't in texas and wondering about it PM me and I'll get the info for a Authorized 3m dealer in your area.
Mods > if this post breaks rules about product placement just tear it down. I'm not trying to step on toes but i could see how you dont want window products on your Powerstroke forum
