One of the best alternatives to curtains and blinds and even a substitute for tempered glass–is window film. A less expensive and long term solution, it comes with a host of additional benefits beyond sun control. All of the window tints we offer, for instance, provide increased home security. However, why you should consider window film for your Denver home is because it is incredibly cost-effective.
What is the Average Cost of Window Film?
The average price of window film is fairly low–only about $5 to $15 per square foot. The price of films depends on the function and materials they are made of. For a typical Denver home of 1000 sq/ft, a homeowner will spend about $1000 to have it installed. Specialized films are more expensive but overall the cost will be significantly lower than replacing your windows and more effective than curtains or blinds.
