Selecting a Film
The cost of your installation will partially depend on the type of film your building needs. Some important things to consider when deciding on a film are listed here.
Glare: Do you ever find it difficult to watch your tv or work on your computer due to too much glare on the screen?
Fading: Does your home, office, or commercial building contain furnishings or flooring that needs fade protection?
Safety: How do you feel about the safety of your home or business? Do you have any unique security needs?
Indoor comfort: How would you rate your indoor comfort year round on a scale of 1-10?
Energy cost: Do you experience fluctuation in your energy bills? Are you looking for a way to reduce expenditures?
Aesthetics: Are you satisfied with the appearance of your building? Do you have any decorational, promotional, or privacy needs?
Several different factors affect the total cost of window film installation. Some of these variables include but are not limited to:
Cost of manufacture: High quality film costs more to manufacture. These films incorporate metal, dye, and ceramics into their makeup and are typically more effective. Less expensive films are cheaper to manufacture, but they usually don’t perform as well or last as long.
Project size and complexity: The bigger or more complex a project is, the more that it will cost. If an installation is particularly difficult, it could require extra labor or special products. However, large commercial projects may be able to receive a discount.
Quality of service and warranty: How much your installation costs also depends on the quality of the services being performed and what warranty is included. A more experienced, larger company may charge more but will stand by their work and can deliver results in a quicker period of time.
General Cost Estimate
Check out the information below to find out more about the prices of specific types of film.*
Spectrally selective: Spectrally selective films typically cost $9-18/sq foot and are used to block heat, glare, and uv rays while creating a bright, well lit interior.
Low-E: Low-E films usually start at $20/sq ft. Low-E window film improves occupant comfort and reduces energy costs year round.
Safety & security: Safety and security films range from $8-16/sq ft. with attachment systems costing an extra $2-5/LFT. Security films offer defense against flying debris, theft, accidental damage, weather, and more.
Bullet resistant: Bullet resistant window systems average around $125/sq ft. These films increase glass flexibility and offer defense against explosives, gunfire, and other serious dangers.
Decorative/frosted: Decorative and frosted film ranges between $6-12/sq ft. These films are used for aesthetic, promotional, and privacy purposes.

The “Real” Cost of Window Film
Martin Faith, the owner of Dallas Window Film, provides some insight about the “real” cost of window film. Read below to find out about a conversation he had with one of our return clients on this topic.
I got a call from an existing client asking us to come out and install some more of our “Free window film” I was confused but he insisted that we did the west side of the house and he got it for free and he sounded really happy. After an awkward silence on my end he eventually he said. “When Mike came to my home in 2012 I asked him how much I could save on my energy bills. He told me most people pay the film back in 3-5 years. So I got out my old bills for the previous 12 months and wrote down how much I spent each month. Then for the past 3 years or so I’ve been keeping track of how much I save each month and as of last month I have now saved the same amount as I paid you guys for the film. So there you have it. The next time someone asks me how much does window film cost all I have to say is “It’s Free!”
