Home Window Tint : What Does It Cost?

One of the most common questions we often get is how much does window tinting cost, and while we can offer a range, the best way to get an exact cost is to measure the windows and have us do a complimentary cost analysis. But here is the most straightforward answer: Window tinting, depending on the project size, scope, access and application will run anywhere from about $10/ Square foot for lower end films to $25/ Square foot for the flagship window films. This is the price range to have a professional and reputable company offer the turn-key solution of installation and warranty afterwards. Anything less than that and you are running the risk of installing something that may break your windows, turn purple or bubble up in a short time. And trust us, removal of window film is not easy or fun.

Window film is not something that we recommend installing yourself if you have never tinted a window, and we recommend doing a glass checklist to check the thermal load on the glass before you install a dark tint.

On the lower end of that price spectrum are the silver films for large commercial projects at a high volume. On the higher end of that spectrum are films like 3M Prestige for residential projects where customers do not want their windows to be blacked out with tint but they want the highest performing window film on the market.

What does the top of the line film do? Well 3M™ Prestige Series employs a precision light wave control system where visible light rays are able to pass while Infrared and UV rays are rejected through its layers. These layers work in such a way that heat rejection increases as the sun's angle increases at hotter times of the day. In our experience, it is pound for pound the highest-performing heat rejection window film in the residential or commercial window film sector when compared directly to other films of the same VLT (Visible Light Transmission) and it does this with no metals in its construction. Most of the competitors 3M™ Prestige is compared to are metallic films that have lower performance with all of the downsides of metalized window films. In modern offices, you need a window film that won't block the 5G signal of everyone working in the building.
