Window film is an emerging technology that not only solves many issues with your windows but works as an alternative to curtains and blinds. It is also a workaround for tempered glass in building codes. It is less expensive than window replacement and comes with a host of additional benefits too. For example–any of the window tints we carry provides 99.9% UV protection. But what should make window film a real consideration for your Salt Lake City home is its price.
What is the Average Cost of Window Film?
The average price of window film is relatively low. On average costing only between $5 to $15 per square foot depending on what the film is used for. So, in a typical 1000 sq/ft Salt Lake City home it will cost less than $1000 to have installed. Specialized films are more expensive but overall lower than replacing your windows. See the average cost of some of the most popular window films below.
Cost of the Most Common Window Films
Spectrally Selective Window Film
Pricing: $9- $18
Utility: Spectrally Selective films are more or less transparent giving you nearly full clarity through your windows. However, these films still block heat transfer and UV rays enough to see a handsome ROI.
Solution: Low-E Window Films
Pricing: $20-$24 per square foot
Utility: Low-E window films are excellent at controlling heat transfer from the glass of your windows during the summer and insulation your winters during the winters. This means these films solve problems associated with energy efficiency but also block UV and glare.
Solution: Safety And Security Films
Pricing: $6-12 per square foot
Utility: Basic security films keep glass adhered to them even after blunt force strikes. This means if someone attempts to break into your home will have a difficult time getting through the windows quickly. Also, safety window film is a way to get areas of your home requiring tempered glass up to code for less.
Solution: Decorative and Frosted Films
Pricing: $8-16 per square foot
Utility: Decorative and frosted films work well for visual marketing in commercial spaces. However, what most people don’t realize is– it also works extremely well in homes. Have it applied to bathroom windows for more privacy and to exactly mimic the look of frosted/etched glass or on kitchen cabinets to cover clutter.
