Top 7 Tips on Hiring the Best Residential Window Tinting Company


Window tinting offers many more benefits to your property than you might realise. The privacy it gives you allows you to relax in total comfort, but it can also protect your furnishings from sun damage as well as increasing the property’s value. Installing home window tinting that look professional and last a long time requires experience and expertise and the tips below will allow you to find the best for you.

1. Ask many companies.
As with anything, there are several companies that can offer professional, good value services. Identifying the best for you can be very difficult and you should always get multiple quotes and compare them. Remember, though, that cheapest doesn’t always mean best value and you should clarify any qualms and fears before finalising your choice.

2. Ensure the company you choose is only a window tinting specialist!
A company that offers window tinting alongside plumbing, roofing and other services will never be as experienced and skilled in window tinting as a specialist. Companies that only specialised in the particular work improves the speed and quality of their work and allows them to afford the best equipment.

3. Choose a company that uses the most advanced equipment.
It is absolutely worth researching the equipment and materials used in window tinting, so you know a company uses proprietary tools. Companies that use traditional chemical dye methods and pressure-sensitive methods should be avoided like the plague. These outdated techniques provide films that expand when heated and put pressure on the glass, causing it to crack. Metallised films are the safest films to ensure the long-term survival of your windows.

4. Check reviews and previous feedback.
The best way to ensure that a company’s services are reliable, effective and top quality is to listen to previous clients. A long history of satisfied customers is the best indication of a great company, and if a company’s feedback is great, they will be happy to show you.

5. Generous warranties are indicative of reliability!
If a company is confident in the quality and reliability of its services, it will be more than happy to offer generous warranties as they feel safe in the knowledge it will rarely be recalled. In general, the reputation and trustworthiness of a company goes hand in hand with the length and generosity of its warranties.

6. Select a company which offers free home consultations.
The level of tint that is best for each of your windows depends on the room’s use. A study, for example, would require less tint so more natural light can get in. Companies can only offer ballpark figures over the phone, and you don’t want to pay for their consultation.

7. Select a company that has been in business for a long time.
Experience is something that comes with time. A company that is new to the area will have nowhere near the experience and knowledge that one which has remained in business for decades would be able to offer.
