This is a common question, and rightfully so. Its natural for us to be interested in the costs associated with any home improvements or business expenses. We all have budgets and financial needs; therefore, it is important to know the associated costs with having your home or business windows tinted.
Knowing the exact cost of how much it costs for window tinting, is not always black and white. There are many factors that go into how much it will cost to have your windows tinted.
Window Tinting Costs Factors
One factor is, window tinting in the San Francisco Bay Area requires a California state contractor license. Therefore, it is important to make sure you are getting estimates from legitimate and properly licensed companies for your protection.
Another set of factors is most companies will examine the job-site and look at the type of windows to have the window tint installed on, check if there is ladder work required, check for removal of any old window tinting, and the surroundings such as existing window coverings that will need to be worked around. All these items increase the amount of labor required, which increase the installation costs.
Also, the most important factor is, the type of window tint to be used. There are many options in choosing the right window tinting product. A solar control window tint versus a safety window film price will vary, and each product has different costs associated with it.
Rule of Thumb: Window Tinting Costs
The best way to get an accurate window tint costs estimate is to have a window film contractor visit your home or business and provide you with a written estimates. As a general rule of thumb, window tinting costs can range from $7 – $14 per square foot.
Remember the cheapest price is not always the best price. Just like every business, window film contractors need to pay for materials, pay for their business expenses and make a profit to stay in business. Sometimes the right questions to ask is not, “Why are you so expensive?” but rather, “Why are you so cheap?” A “Fair Price” is the best price.
