The Cost of Window Tint Installation
Window tint installation is a necessity in most homes. Homes with a lot of glass windows, houses with windows facing sunlight, homes in need of privacy, etc. Having tinted windows installed allows one to view his compound surroundings with no one knowing I am doing exactly that, which is really great for privacy but that’s not the only benefit. I also get to spend far less on the electricity bill, especially during summer with less heat entering the house which also means less use of energy-consuming air conditioners.
How does one go about window tint installation?
One does not need to be a handyman or a professional to install window tint, it is very easy to, but it is also advisable to give a professional to handle the installation if one cannot do it himself. It involves proper cleaning and drying of the window and covering the window with the film after applying adhesive, quite simple!
What kind of window films should be installed?
This depends on one one’s taste and want. If I want to prevent too much direct exposure to sunlight which can lead to skin cancer, I use a darker film. Darker films also help to prevent fading of home furniture from too much exposure to direct sunlight.
How much does window tint installation cost?
The tinting windows cost in Las Vegas is dependent on some factors, they are listed below
The size of the window: the size of the window will determine the size of the film to be installed on it, hence the cost also. If the window is small, less film and less cost but if the window is big, one will be needing larger film, and the cost will be on the high side in comparison to a smaller window.
The kind of film to be installed: for standard solar films, one is expected to pay between 5-6 dollars for a square foot. One gets to pay higher if an expert installer is contracted but there is assurance of warranty.
The quality of the film to be installed: it is generally known that more is paid for quality materials; this is also the same for window tint installation. Films made with higher quality materials tend to be costlier and the reason is quite apparent.
Location and positioning of the window: this is often not the issue for small homes but in a case where window tint is being installed in tall buildings, we often get the challenge of having some windows placed very high or positioned in a manner where it will not be easy to install. An expert installer will charge more in cases like this, and it is understandable. Ladders might be needed, and the job is even riskier.
The four points above are not the only factors affecting the tinting windows cost in Las Vegas, but they are significant factors to be considered before contracting an expert installer to install window tint.
In general, the average cost of installing window tint per square foot ranges from $5 to $12, and this value is measured by the size of the window, the location of the window, type and quality of the film to be used on the window.
