How Much Does Window Film Cost?

Window film is the best alternative to curtains and blinds and even a substitute for tempered glass. It is also a less expensive and longer-term solution that comes with a host of additional benefits beyond sun control. For instance, all of the window tints we offer provide increased home protection. However, what should really make window film an option to consider for your Kansas City home is how very cost-effective it is.  

What is the Average Cost of Window Film?

The average price of window film is relatively low–about $5 to $15 per square foot depending on the function. This means a typical Kansas City homeowner will spend less than $1000 to have installed (*based on 1000 sq/ft home). Some more specialized films are more expensive but overall the cost will be significantly lower than replacing your windows and more effective than curtains or blinds. Look for the average of some of the most popular films below.

Cost of the Most Common Window Film

Spectrally Selective Window Film

Pricing: $9- $18

Utility: Spectrally Selective films are very light in color, meaning you get almost full clarity from your windows looking out but the film still does an amazing job stopping heat transfer and UV rays. 

Solution: Low-E Window Films 

Pricing: $20-$24 per square foot

Utility: Low-E window films are excellent at stopping heat transfer from the glass of your windows during the hot months and keeping heated air in during the cold. 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 hold glass in place even after hit by blunt force–meaning should someone try to break into your home they will have a very hard time getting through the windows. Safety window film is also 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 are great for commercial spaces but also work extremely well in homes. You can opt to 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 stylishly.
