How Much Does Window Tinting Cost?

Naturally, there are several factors that determine how much it will cost to install window tinting on your home. Before we calculate the costs we first need to consider the following factors:

  • The type and size of windows and doors to be tinted
  • The window tinting film (a wide range is available)

The Benefits of Window Tinting – How It Can Increase the Value of Your Property

Tinting your windows may help to increase the value of your property and make it a more appealing investment to homebuyers. The most notable benefits associated with window tinting include:

Increased Energy Efficiency

By blocking the sun’s rays from the interior of your home, your home will be cooler which means you’ll use less energy to keep it at a comfortable temperature.

Energy efficiency is an important investment in your home and can help to increase its fiscal value. Additionally, it’s one of the factors homebuyers focus on most, especially with rising energy prices.

More Privacy and Better Home Security

Tinted windows are a great way for increasing privacy, but did you know that they help to improve security at home as well? By making the interior of your home less visible from outside, you’re not only increasing privacy, you’re also making your home less of a target to thieves.

As many break-and-enters involve the criminal smashing a window and grabbing something they can see, when they can’t see your valuables inside, there’s less chance of them attempting to break in.

Blocking Harmful UV Rays from the Interior

When you block harmful UV rays from the interior of your home, you benefit in many ways, such as:

  • Reduced risk of skin cancer and accelerated ageing
  • Decreased risk of eye damage due to excessive glare
  • Reduced risk of damage to carpets, furniture and art

Window tinting is a one-time investment which delivers a wealth of potential benefits that can increase the value of your home and make it a more enjoyable place to reside, as well as represent a better investment to homebuyers if you decide to sell.
