FAQs About Home Window Tinting


How Much Does It Cost to Install Window Film?

Price can vary depending upon the number, size and location of your window panes as well as the complexity of the project. A job can run from as little as $250 to $2,500. We are happy to provide an estimate over the phone, however, we always remeasure when onsite to ensure a proper application.

Why Window Film?

How badly do you love your flooring, window coverings and furniture? If you don’t want to replace these items any time soon, you should consider window film. It's estimated that window tinting can block as much as 80% of the sun's heat. During winter, the same window film will retain interior heat, resulting in lower heating costs. An added bonus is that every film (no matter the tint) acts as a security film if the window were to shatter--it holds all the glass in place rather than have it fall all over the floor.

Will Window Film Void My Window Warranty?

This is a common myth and often the pitch of new home builders. Professional window film installers are confident enough that they will not only warranty the film from failure but will also warranty the glass from breakage from installation, matching the existing glass manufacturer's warranty. Any good installer will first examine the windows for any imperfections and advise the homeowner accordingly. Note: The film is NOT covered for damage done by animal claws so you’ll want to keep an eye on your critters!

Why Not Automatic Roller Shades?

They are expensive, do not help much with heat and worse yet, they obstruct your view.

What Is The Process?

What To Expect the Day We Install

We may ask you to close the vents in the room if air is blowing too much to keep dust and fur at a minimum.

After inspecting the window panes, a mild soapy solution (think baby shampoo and purified water) is used to clean the inside of your windows—yes, you heard right—we’ll clean the inside of your windows! 

We use a razor-knife to remove any dried paint and debris to get a clean application. After the film is installed, a special squeegee specifically designed for this process is used to remove the excess water and voila!

We will leave you with care instructions at completion. Just be sure to use a soft cloth (microfiber) and an ammonia free spray. NO PAPER TOWEL!
