How Much Does Window Film Cost?
Window film is a fantastic alternative to curtains and blinds and is also a workaround for tempered glass. It is almost always less expensive and comes with a host of additional benefits beyond the problems you are trying to solve. For instance, any of the window tints we offer provide 99.9% UV protection. However, what really makes window film a strong consideration for your Fort Collins home is the price.
What is the Average Cost of Window Film?
The average price of window film is fairly low–costing only between $5 to $15 per square foot depending on the function. This means a typical Fort Collins homeowner will cost less than $1000 to have installed. Some specialized films will be more expensive but overall lower than replacing your windows. Look for the average of some of the most popular films below.

Spectrally Selective Window Film
