If you are looking for the easiest and most economical ways to boost the aesthetic appeal of your home, then home window tinting is one of the options you can take. Modern homes today have many glass windows and doors, which makes home tinting a remarkable ascent. However, many hold that thought due to concerns regarding the cost.
The average cost of home window tinting
Since window sizes vary, you won’t find tinting priced by window. A standard cost of home window tinting in Australia would be $50 or $60 per square metre. An added $15 per square metre for labour is reasonable. The fee could be lower for homes with standard numbers of glass windows and doors, which is about $47.50/m2. As for bigger houses with multiple glass windows and doors, expect a higher rate of about $67.60/m2.
The cost of tint installation will vary on the size and number of glass windows and doors to cover. The more windows to cover, the more it will cost for a professional installer service.
Different variables will come into play when the installer provides you with a quote. Factors that can influence the cost include the materials to use, the size and number of glass doors and windows, and the complexity of the installation.
Should you go with DIY tinting?
While it may seem an easy task to do and consider the window tinting job yourself, the work is much more specialised than you may think. It may seem easy, but without prior experience, a poor tinting job will result in bubbles in your tint. Even worse, you may need to do the job again by hiring a professional to scrape and reapply tint.
