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 cost of the install. There are generally three main factors that affect the cost of installation, which include the cost to manufacture the film, the size and intensity of the work, and the quality of service provided. Here are some important things you should know about each:
Cost of manufacture: High quality films use more expensive materials such as metal, ceramics, and durable polyester, that allow 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 difficult, it will require more manpower and materials. However, large commercial installs may be able to receive a discount.
Quality of service: The quality of the workmanship 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 Price Estimates
Installation costs aside, it’s also important 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, 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
