This is an even harder subject than explaining how window film works. The price for a car tint can vary dramatically from the cheapest shop from $35.00 to the luxury tint shop’s $450 or more. For each of these situations, the price can be considered reasonable. What a REASONABLE price is depends on many factors: YOUR CAR TYPE quite simply, some cars are harder to tint than others. When getting a price quote, a Tint Shop always asks you for the make and model of your car. This isn’t to see how much money you have and charge you more. Tint Techs know which cars take more time to tint properly. Some cars with steep and curved rear windows or cars with easily damaged electronics require panels and speakers to be removed manually from your vehicle. Felts may have to be applied to moldings to protect the film from future damage and use. This obviously can drive the cost up. Additionally, each additional square foot of window on your vehicle requires more window film to tint. This makes tinting a SUV or station wagons cost more than sedans.
Just like comparing an Escort to a Bugatti, there are a wide performance and cost difference in window film. The cheapest film can be many times less in price than more expensive film, but you get what you pay for. Cheap film may look good in the beginning, but they can fail to block the summer heat, fade, turn purple, or bubble soon after installation. Higher quality window film such as Ceramic window films offer both advanced performance and a performance warranty. These films are usually worth the higher price.
Not all Warranties are created equal! Most warranties only cover problems such as blistering, bubbling, and peeling. Some films carry a “Color-Safe Warranty” that gives you peace of mind that if the color of your tint ever changes, it will be replaced. Be Careful! Irresponsible tint shops can also offer “Lifetime Warranties”; however, if they go out of business next year, who is there to replace your bubbling tint?
Reputable Tint Shops take great pride in their work. They have high standards in who they hire, the film they use, and overall customer service and experience.
