IN THE NEW YEAR RYAN MONTGOMERY JOINS ME NOW, THE OWNER OF FIREHOUSE WINDOW TINT

HE'S ALSO, BY THE WAY, A FIREMAN AND THIS IS THE ACTUAL BUSINESS HE STARTED WITH HIS FAMILY AND HE'S HERE TO TELL US MORE ABOUT IT WE'RE THANKFUL YOU CAME IN TODAY >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME >> WE'RE GLAD YOU'RE A FIREFIGHTER, TODAY YOU FEEL GREAT TODAY? >> I FEEL GREAT

>> YOU CAN PUT OUT FIRES AND TINT WINDOWS, RIGHT? >> I TRY >> TELL US ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS WHAT DO YOU DO? >> IT'S REALLY PLENTY I WOULD START YEARS AGO, ABOUT 16 YEARS AGO, I WANTED TO HAVE A LITTLE SHOP, REALLY JUST SOMETHING FOR THE GUYS TO GET TOGETHER AND JUST HANG OUT AND PLAY CARDS AND MY FAMILY, THEY JUST SAW THE PASSION I HAD WITH IT SO THEY DECIDED, YOU KNOW WHAT? LET'S HELP HIM

LET'S DO SOMETHING THE BUSINESS STARTED AND JUST OVER THE LAST 16 YEARS, JUST THROUGH THE SUPPORT OF MY FAMILY AND REALLY JUST THE WAY GOD HAS JUST BEEN BLESSING ME, THE BUSINESS HAS JUST GROWN LEAPS AND BOUNDS >>Karen: THAT'S AWESOME THAT'S A WONDERFUL STORY LET'S SHOW SOME PICTURES OF THE CARS YOU DO

LET'S DO THAT FIRST AND THEN OTHER THINGS AS WELL TELL US WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT HERE THIS IS A BEFORE PICTURE? >> YES THIS IS A BEFORE PICTURE WE HAVE A NEW BMW THAT CAME IN

THE CUSTOMER, THEY WERE REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT KEEPING A LOT — EVERYBODY KNOWS, FLORIDA IS JUST CRAZY HOT HE WANTED SOMETHING THAT WAS ALSO GOING TO PROTECT THE INTERIOR LUXURY CARS, THEY HAVE A VERY EXPENSIVE LEATHER INTERIOR TO THEM SO THE PRODUCT WE USE, IT'S JUS GOING TO GIVE JUST THE BEST PROTECTION PERIOD >>Karen: WOW

>> NOW AN AFTER PICTURE WHAT WE INSTALLED WAS T CERAMIC FILM THE GREAT THING IS THAT IT'S MADE SPECIFICALLY TO BE ELECTRONIC WITH ALL YOUR NEW VEHICLES THESE DAYS, THEY'RE COVERED WITH ELECTRONICS AND SENSORS IF YOU PUT YOUR METALLIZED FILMS ON THEM, YOU RUN THE RISK OF HAVING INTERFERENCE

IT'S LIKE TAKING A CELL PHONE IN A GROCERY STORE IT MAY WORK, IT MAY NOT CERAMIC FILMS, YOU'RE GUARANTEED NOT TO HAVE ELECTRONIC PROBLEMS >>Karen: THAT'S INTERESTING LIKE YOU'RE SAYING, IT COULD CAUSE INTERFERENCE WITH THE SIGNAL OF SO MANY THINGS THAT ARE INCORPORATED NOW INTO THE CARS

WOW NOW, THAT'S REALLY DARK AND THAT'S A POPULAR LOOK AROUND HERE >> IT REALLY IS NOW, EVERY STATE, THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE THEIR OWN LAWS AS FAR AS HOW DARK THEY WANT YOU TO GO ALWAYS RECOMMEND DOING THE DARKEST LEGAL BECAUSE I DON'T WANT YOU TO COME BACK AND BEAT ME UP BECAUSE YOU GOT A TICKET

SO YEAH, JUST TRY TO STICK WITH A NICE, LEGAL TINT IF YOU GO TOO DARK, THE OTHER ISSUE AT NIGHTTIME, YOU'LL HAVE VISIBILITY PROBLEMS AND I DON'T WANT ANYBODY TO HAVE ANY ACCIDENT >>Karen: FLORIDA IS PRETTY LAX IN SOME STATES, THEY ARE MORE STRICT IN SOME CASES, THEY WANT TO SEE THE PEOPLE INSIDE OF THE CAR

>> ABSOLUTELY >>Karen: LET'S LOOK AT THE PROP THAT YOU BROUGHT ALONG I THINK THIS IS INTERESTING IT TURNS ON AND THEN IT'S GOT KIND OF A — A HEAT LAMP OF SORTS >> THIS IS ACTUALLY REALLY COOL

SO IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF CUSTOMERS THAT KNOW THAT THEY WANT A WINDOW FILM BUT THEY REALLY DON'T KNOW A LOT ABOUT THE FILM ITSELF, A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK THE WINDOW FILM IS WINDOW FILM YOU HAVE LOW QUALITY FILMS AND THEN A HIGHER QUALITY FILM WHAT WE ACTUALLY DO WITH THIS, WE HAVE THREE SAMPLES OF FILM AND YOU CAN ACTUALLY FEEL HOW MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE IT MAKES FROM AN UNTREATED GLASS AND YOU JUST ROTATE THROUGH TO DIFFERENT TYPES OF FILM SO THEY CAN PHYSICALLY FEEL FOR THEMSELVES — >> >>Karen: THE HEAT CUTS DOWN >> EXACTLY THE ONE THAT IS MOST POPULAR, THIS IS THE AIR 80 ZONE

THIS IS THE CLEAR FILM IF SOMEONE WANTS TO PROTECT THE DASH ITSELF AND THEY WANT A FILM THAT YOU CANNOT SEE, THIS IS WHAT WE DO ON THE WHOLE WINDSHIELD YOU'RE BIG THE BIGGEST WINDOW YOU HAVE ALL THE HEAT, ALL THE UV

COMING IN YOU CAN PUT THIS ON THE GLASS AND YOU'RE COMPLETELY COVERED THEN THERE'S OTHER CERAMIC FILMS, JUST THE BASIC GUIDE FILMS SO YOU CAN SEE THERE'S A SIGNIFICANT HEAT DIFFERENCE AS YOU GO UP IN THIS AREA >>Karen: OKAY ANOTHER THING INTERESTINGLY IS THAT BESIDES CAR WINDOWS, PEOPLE CAN ALSO TINT THE WINDOWS INSIDE OF THEIR HOME

AND WE HAVE A PICTURE OF A HOUSE THAT RECENTLY HAD THIS DONE TO IT BUT THIS IS GREAT BECAUSE IT KEEPS LIKE THE INTERIOR FROM A LOT OF HEAT AND FROM YOUR CARPETS TO FURNITURE, UPHOLSTERY FADING SO WE'RE LOOKING AT YOUR HOUSE? >> YES THIS IS MINE TYPICALLY WHEN SOMEBODY IS WANT TO GO DO A FILM ON THEIR HOUSE, THEY WANT TO PROTECT THE INTERIOR PLUS IT'S GOING TO REALLY CUT DOWN ON THE ELECTRIC BILL ITSELF SO YOU HAVE FILMS THAT ARE MADE SPECIFICALLY FOR A HOUSE SO IT'S NOT THE SAME TYPE OF FILM THAT GOES ON A CAR

SO YOU CAN HAVE A FIL THAT'S JUST VIRTUALLY CLEAR OR GO TO A DU REFLECTIVE FILM THAT WILL KEEP A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF HEAT OUT MINE, I WEN WITH A NEUTRAL FILM I DIDN'T WANT TO HAVE THAT LOOK OF A SILVER WINDOW I DIDN'T WANT IT TO LOOK LIKE IT'S TOO MUCH OF A COMMERCIAL BUILDING IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S VERY PLEASING TO THE EYE

>>Karen: SOMETIMES PEOPLE LIKE THAT FOR PRIVACY IT DEPENDS ON WHAT DOOR, WHAT WINDOW MAYBE >> EXACTLY >>Karen: THAT WOULD ALSO PLAY A PART AS WELL YOU GUYS ARE LOCATED — WHERE IS YOUR OFFICE? >> CORNER OF BEACH AND HODGES
