If you are wondering how much does it cost to tint windows for your home, please read this article to for a transparent and deep understanding of what goes into the final cost. As with many custom services, the answer to the question of “how much does window tinting in Colorado Springs cost” is, “it depends”. There are several variables that are considered in determining the final home window tinting cost, but can be broken down by the type of window film selected and the difficulty of installation.
Residential Window Tinting Cost Determined by Square Footage
Residential window tinting price estimates are based on square footage of window glass and averages between $6-$8 per square foot, although it can be as low as $5 per square foot and as high as $20 per square foot. The home window tinting cost differences in solar control residential window film products are fairly small, with neutral and dual-reflective films on the higher end and dyed films on the lower end. However, decorative window tint and security window films can cost considerably more than solar control window films. Window films offered by different manufacturing companies will also vary in price. But beware, not all window films are created equal!
Some of the differences between window film manufacturers are warranty, product clarity, and longevity. We have been in business for over 45 years and choose to offer LLumar and Vista window films because they have proven to be the most durable in the areas of color fading, delamination, clarity and adhesion. As a SelectPro Dealer we don’t accept anything less than the best residential window films for our customers resulting in true color, optimal durability, and optical clarity.
Warranty is also an important factor when choosing a window film brand and in our experience submitted claims to our manufacturer are very responsive and sensitive to our client’s needs.
Other Window Tinting Price Variables to Consider
Some other factors that are considered in determining the final cost per square foot are the level of skill needed for a clean, professional installation as well as the time involved. Some circumstances that may cause the window tint quote to increase are the window frame type (wood frames can cost more than vinyl window frames), condition of the window and surrounding frame, overall size of the window (extremely large windows require larger film sizes and multiple installers), the height of the window and need for a ladder or scaffolding (such as 2nd and 3rd story windows), and the total quantity of window panes relative to size (for example, French pane windows will cost more per square foot). With all of these variables you can see why it is challenging to offer a standard price.
You can use this information as a guide to determine what to anticipate at your in-home product consultation and estimate. On average though, you can expect to pay around $7-$8 per square foot for a typical residential application. Schedule your estimate today here.
