A Guide to Window Film Pricing in Long Island

At Long Island Window Film, we understand that installing window film in your home or business is a big investment. We want our customers to feel comfortable about their decisions and understand all aspects of their projects, including pricing. That’s why we’ve put together the following information as a guide to help our customers understand window film pricing in Long Island.

How to Select the Right Window Film

There are hundreds of different types and styles of window film. For this reason, many people feel overwhelmed when deciding between all the different options. However, finding the right film is actually much easier than you may think. It all comes down to your goals and the problem you need to be solved. When you work with us, you’ll be assisted by one of our experienced staff members, who will help you find the perfect film based on your needs and aesthetic preferences.

Calculating the Cost of Installation

Once you’ve discovered what type of film you need, the next step to calculating the total cost of your project is to determine the price of the installation. Generally, three main factors affect the installation price: the cost to manufacture the film, the size and intensity of the work, and the quality of service provided. Here are some essential things you should know about each:

Cost of manufacture: High-quality films use more expensive materials, such as metal, ceramics, and durable polyester, which allows them to perform better, whereas cheap, low-quality films are typically made of nothing more than dyed sheets of thin material.

Project size & intensity: The size and difficulty of the installation also affect the overall price. If a project is particularly large or complex, it will require more workforce and materials. However, large commercial installs may be able to receive a discount.

Quality of service: The quality of the artistry also has to be calculated into the cost. A smaller, less experienced company may have lower prices but may not provide the same level of service as a larger company. Many larger companies also include a warranty on their service.

General Window Film Price Estimates

Installation costs aside, it’s also essential to know the price of the film itself. Different types of films are made with different materials and, therefore, vary in price. Here are some general estimates of price averages for different types of film:

Spectrally selective: ranges from $9-18 per sq ft; used for rejecting heat and UV rays and saving money on energy costs

Low-e film: costs around $20 per sq ft; used for indoor climate control in dual climate regions

Safety/security: ranges from $8-16 per sq ft; used for theft prevention and accident protection

Bullet resistant: costs around $125 per sq ft; used for ballistic protection

Security attachment systems: costs $2-5 per linear ft; used to hold security window film in place

Decorative/frosted: cost $6-12 per sq ft; used for adding privacy and decorative purposes

*Prices vary and should only be used as a guideline for calculating estimates
