Factors that affect the cost of a job

Installers will take into account a variety of factors when providing quotes for jobs. If you want to properly budget your expenses, it’s best to know what these variables are beforehand.

Location

Prices differ for home tinting and car tinting installations. Car tinting is usually cheaper since car windows are a lot smaller than home or office windows. On the other hand, commercial or office installations are usually the most expensive tinting jobs. These typically cover multiple windows and multiple floors.

Type

Windscreen, glass, and tinting products vary in price, so some products are definitely more affordable than others. Decorative film is the thinnest and cheapest kind of window tint. It provides privacy but don’t offer much when it comes to sunlight protection. If you want more protection, you might want to opt for window security film instead. This kind of tint prevents shards of glass from flying everywhere in the event that the window gets broken. It also helps in preventing intruders from breaking and penetrating the glass.

Size

A lot of businesses charge rates based on the size of the area. Naturally, the larger the area to be covered, the more it’s going to cost. Having a single window in your vehicle might not cost a lot, but installing window tinting for an entire multi-level office is an entirely different story.

Rates are different from state to state

At approximately $45/m2, Queensland has the lowest rate for windscreen, glass, and tinting installation. Rates are slightly higher in New South Wales where the same type of service costs about $50/m2. Meanwhile, windscreen, glass, and tinting installers in Western Australia charge around $60/m2. The highest cost for this kind of service is in Victoria where the average rate is $70/m2.
