Compare Home Window Tinting Price Quotes

We all want our homes to be light and bright, but sometimes the sunlight pouring through our windows is too intense. Home window tinting reduces that intensity, usually without changing the look of your home.

Home window tinting saves energy, prevents hot spots, and protects furniture and floors from fading. It increases privacy and reduces glare on TVs and computer screens. You might not have guessed that it also makes your home safer and more secure.

About Home Window Tinting

Home window tinting doesn’t block light from entering your home; it blocks the sun’s infrared heat and harmful UV rays. Window tinting keeps your home cooler and more comfortable on hot and sunny days, and it can reduce cooling costs by as much as 30 percent. It protects your skin from added exposure to UV rays, and it extends the life of your fabrics, carpets and hardwood finishings.

Tinting also adds and extra layer of strength to your windows, helping to hold panes together if the glass breaks due to extreme weather or the neighbor’s baseball. Tinting makes it more difficult for burglars to enter the house by smashing a window.

Tinting film is always installed on the inside of your windows, never the outside. It comes in a variety of shades, from almost invisible to fairly dark. With lighter versions, a casual observer would have no idea the film is there.

Most film lasts about 15 years.

Average Window Tinting Prices

Cost of Home Window Tinting

Quality film usually costs $2-$4 per square foot. You don’t want to skimp here: Poor-quality film might not last five years, let alone 15. Professional installation usually brings the price to $5-$10 per square foot. Most professionals will give you a choice of film brands, explaining the cost and pros/cons of each.

Some people choose to save money by tackling the installation themselves, but this is risky if you don’t have experience. Improperly applied, window tint can bubble. We’ve all seen bad tinting jobs like that on cars – they’re an eyesore.

Eventually, most people will recoup the cost of home window tinting in energy savings. The federal government also offers a tax credit to people who tint their home windows under the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, which extended tax credits put into place in 2009. Homeowners can recoup 10 percent of the project’s total cost, up to $500.

A lawyer never retires. So I would just say that I am not as active as I used to be. Now I simply dedicate myself to fishing, my hobby, and my grandchildren. For Business Finance News I write about legal aspects of mortgage policies, mostly regarding the rights of policyholders. I also have articles about personal injuries.

DISCLAIMER

A personal loan is a medium term loan with a fixed interest rate that is repaid in equal monthly payments and it's usually limited to 24 months. Loan offers and eligibility depend on your individual credit profile. Our lenders can help you obtain as much as $3,000 depending on the lender, your state and your financial situation.

The owner and operator of businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and is not involved into making credit decisions associated with lending or making loan offers. Instead, the website is designed only for a matching service, which enables the users contact with the lenders and third parties. The website does not charge any fees for its service, nor does it oblige any user to initiate contact with any of the lenders or third parties or accept any loan product or service offered by the lenders. All the data concerning personal loan products and the industry is presented on the website for information purposes only.

Businessfinancenews.com does not endorse any particular lender, nor does it represent or is responsible for the actions or inactions of the lenders. Businessfinancenews.com does not collect, store or has access to the information regarding the fees and charges associated with the contacting lenders and/or any loan products. Online personal loans are not available in all the states. Not all the lenders in the network can provide the loans up to $3,000. Businessfinancenews.com cannot guarantee that the user of the website will be approved by any lender or for any loan product, will be matched with a lender, or if matched, will receive a personal loan offer on the terms requested in the online form. The lenders may need to perform credit check via one or more credit bureaus, including but not limited to major credit bureaus in order to determine credit reliability and the scopes of credit products to offer. The lenders in the network may need to perform additional verifications, including but not limited to social security number, driver license number, national ID or other identification documents. The terms and scopes of loan products vary from lender to lender and can depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the state of residence and credit standing of the applicant, as well as the terms determined by each lender individually. 

APR REPRESENTATIVE

APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is the loan rate calculated for the annual term. Since businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and has no information regarding the terms and other details of personal loan products offered by lenders individually, businessfinancenews.com cannot provide the exact APR charged for any loan product offered by the lenders. The APRs greatly vary from lender to lender, state to state and depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the credit standing of an applicant. Additional charges associated with the loan offer, including but not limited to origination fees, late payment, non-payment charges and penalties, as well as non-financial actions, such as late payment reporting and debt collection actions, may be applied by the lenders. These financial and non-financial actions have nothing to do with businessfinancenews.com, and businessfinancenews.com has no information regaining whatsoever actions may be taken by the lenders. All the financial and non-financial charges and actions are to be disclosed in any particular loan agreement in a clear and transparent manner. The APR is calculated as the annual charge and is not a financial charge for a personal loan product. 

Late Payment Implications

It is highly recommended to contact the lender if late payment is expected or considered possible. In this case, late payment fees and charges may be implied. Federal and state regulations are determined for the cases of late payment and may vary from case to case. All the details concerning the procedures and costs associated with late payment are disclosed in loan agreement and should be reviewed prior to signing any related document. 

Non-payment Implications

Financial and non-financial penalties may be implied in cases of non-payment or missed payment. Fees and other financial charges for late payment are to be disclosed in loan agreement. Additional actions related to non-payment, such as renewals, may be implied upon given consent. The terms of renewal are to be disclosed in each loan agreement individually. Additional charges and fees associated with renewal may be applied. 

Debt collection practices and other related procedures may be performed. All the actions related to these practices are adjusted to Fair Debt Collection Practices Act regulations and other applicable federal and state laws in order to protect consumers from unfair lending and negative borrowing experience. The majority of lenders do not refer to outside collection agencies and attempt to collect the debt via in-house means. 

Non-payment and late payment may have negative impact on the borrowers’ credit standing and downgrade their credit scores, as the lenders may report delinquency to credit bureaus, including but not limited to Equifax, Transunion, and Experian. In this case the results of non-payment and late payment may be recorded and remain in credit reports for the determined amount of time.
