If you’re a home or business owner in sunny Houston, where the big houses have even bigger windows, you’ve no doubt heard of the benefits of installing window film. You probably know about the health benefits, the energy efficiency, how they offer privacy and safety, and how they can save a ton on energy bills. But now that you’re ready to make the jump to window film yourself, do you know how much they’ll actually cost?
There’s A Lot to Consider
Before you determine cost, you’ll need to ask yourself some other questions. What exactly are your needs? How many windows will need film? What direction does your home or business face? Standard tinted film or decorative? Materials, clarity, color, strength, aesthetics, and film thickness also factor into the overall cost of installing tinted window film.
Determine Your Needs
First, ask yourself what you hope to achieve by installing window film. Improved privacy and security? Protect your home from harmful UV rays? Reduce energy consumption and energy bills? Cut down on glare?
Once you narrow that down, you’ll then want to determine which windows and interior spaces would benefit most from tinted window film. All of the windows or just some of them? Tint an entire window space or just part of it? Again, so many questions, but determining your needs first will help you get early estimates on costs that fit in with your budget.
How Much Sun Do You Get?
Depending on your building’s placement and even its geographical location, some windows will get more sun exposure than others. Knowing which will get the most can help determine which windows will benefit most from installing window film. You’ll also want to consider outdoor factors like pools, wood or concrete decks, and landscaping that can radiate and reflect heat that is then absorbed by glass.
A good rule of thumb is to take a good look at your home or business and note the direction of sunlight and where it hits your windows at various times in the day. This will give you a good idea of exactly where to install window film and how much you’ll need, both of which will factor into your overall budget.
Well? How Much Will It Cost?
Because selecting the right window film for your budget depends on many individual variables, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. To get a specific idea of how much installing window film will impact your wallet, you’ll need to take the next step: Contact an expert.
