Every window film manufacturer has a standard film line similar to their competition, and each varies in dealer price. You can see from the logos below that there are many manufacturers. Today, standard film retail prices typically cost between $4.00 and $6.00 per square foot, depending upon the type of film and the total amount of square footage on the job. Most of the time a standard film will best suit your requirements and is chosen and installed.
There are also higher quality films that cost more to manufacture: some, like the ceramic and silver medal films, cost considerably more. Most of the better films are light in shade and color, and all have a better heat reduction at the same light transmission as the standard films. These higher quality films range in retail price between $6.00 and $12.00 per square foot, once again depending on the type of film and amount of square footage on the job.
There are three window film percentages that are most important to understand. These three percentages are the basis for selection of the proper film. The first percentage is the ultra-violet protection, which is 99 percent in almost all window films. The second percentage is the amount of heat rejected, up to 85 percent. The third percentage is the light transmission, which depends on the darkness of the window film, from clear to black out.
Residential window tinting will help protect your home from the harmful rays of the sun. Solar Stop Glass Tinting installations will also help you save money. With energy costs constantly on the rise, homeowners are constantly looking for ways to cut back on energy expenses. Residential window tinting is an effective way to save money on fading of materials, energy usage, and air conditioning cost.
The sun’s harmful rays attack your home, furniture, carpets, floors, and walls. Never fear, as window tinting will protect you from these harmful sun rays. Window films also can cut the glare, giving you a crystal clear view out your windows without having to put on sunglasses. With no or less glare, the eyes are relieved of visual stress. The films also strengthen the glass, and the thicker films (four- to eight-mil) can make the glass safer, even shatterproof. Our clear four-mil safety-security film can be used to pass safety glass inspections and are also used to help close escrow by coating non-tempered sliding glass doors.
Almost all residential window film installations come with a lifetime warranty against peeling, bubbling, cracking, delaminating, and discoloring. Many films also come with a glass breakage warranty.
Residential window tinting does not make your windows appear dark, but many films give daytime privacy from the outside looking in. The natural light will not be altered unless requested, but the harmful U.V., too much light and infrared (heat), will be eliminated. We also have many decorative and design films to choose from for your design needs.
All films today have a scratch-resistant exterior coating and are very easy to clean. For best results, purchase and use a glass polish, which can be found at a glass shop or hardware store. You can also use a spray bottle full of water with a drop of liquid soap to spray and wipe with a soft cloth or paper towel. A Squeegee can also be used. Do NOT use any common glass cleaners, such as Windex, or anything with ammonia as these are harmful to the scratch-resistant coating.
