Costs of Sacramento Window Tinting Services
Posted on:Tuesday, February 26, 2013

The process of applying a window tinting film is a time-consuming one. As a result, the costs associated with paying a professional to tint the windows on your car or in your home can be quite expensive. It also requires a keen attention to detail to ensure that all of the bubbles are removed as these will cause problems with the tinting later on.

It is not uncommon to see rates in the range of several hundred dollars to tint the windows of a car. A home can cost even more depending upon the number and dimensions of the windows to be tinted. As a result, many car and home owners over the years have opted to apply the film themselves.

The actual cost of the film varies greatly depending upon who made it and what qualities does it have. A simple 30% tinting film costs very little per foot when purchased by the roll. A 70% film can cost substantially more. However, there are also reflective films, polarized tints and even ceramic options to choose from. Each type of film has its own unique advantages and disadvantages associated with it.

Your basic films block a lot of light from passing through the glass. However, they allow the UV light to pass through. Not only are the UV rays bad for us, they are also the leading cause to heat building up inside the space. As a result, more and more people are opting to spend the extra money to purchase the ceramic films

At the same time, if you are planning on preventing virtually all of the light from passing though one way while still allowing it to pass through on the other direction, you will be needing a reflective or limo tint. This kind of tinting creates the one-way mirror effect in which you can see out, but others cannot see in. While cheaper than the ceramic based films, caution must be taken when choosing to use reflective tinting films on cars as many places have laws against its use.

You will also need to take into account the cost of the tools needed to apply the tint. This includes a hair dryer, a box cutter, replacement blades, a spray bottle as well as a squeegee. A good quality squeegee should be used to ensure that all of the air bubbles are removed as even a single bubble can affect the finished product.
