The cost of our services varies greatly depending on the specifics of your home and your needs. On average, for a home valued at around $500,000, you might expect to spend between $350 to $3,000. For a million-dollar home, the cost could range from as little as $350 (for a bathroom window, for instance) to upwards of $6,000 to $7,000. If you’re dealing with a multi-million-dollar home, your costs might climb to around $20,000. It’s important to note that these prices can be influenced by various factors. For example, services may be more expensive if scaffolding is needed or if there are uniquely shaped windows that are high off the ground. Also, we have a minimum fee of $350, which may be subject to change, and a $15 fuel fee.

The time it takes to complete our services can vary widely, ranging from just a couple of hours to several days. This is dependent on the size of your home, the number of windows, and the complexity of the job. On average, for a full window tint service on a standard-sized home, you can expect the process to take between 1 to 2 days. Please note that these timelines are estimates and actual times can vary based on specific project circumstances.

It’s common to see small bubbles under freshly installed tint. Normally, these bubbles should go away within a couple of weeks and should be very small. They may take longer to go away in cold weather and vanish faster in heat. If you have larger bubbles or bubbles that have formed in older tint, then they will not go away. You can get rid of bubbles that are causing problems by carefully pricking them with a pin or sewing needle and then smoothing a credit card over the bubble to make it disappear.

For cleaning your windows, we recommend using any non-abrasive window cleaning solution or any ammonia-based product like Windex™ or Glass Plus™. Avoid using abrasive cleaners, baking soda, or any solution that contains scrubbing agents, as these can damage the film. Apply the cleaning solution with a soft, lint-free cloth, sponge, or squeegee, and be sure to rub gently, never scrub, to avoid damaging the film, especially if there is dirt or smudges on it. Once clean, dry the window with a soft, lint-free towel. Please refrain from using paper towels as many of them are too abrasive for the window film.

The regulations for window tinting in Utah are specific and differ between sedan cars and SUV cars or vans. The amount of visible light allowed through your car windows is termed as VLT (Visible Light Transmission). Here are the guidelines for sedans:
Windshield: Non-reflective tint is allowed above the manufacturer’s AS-1 line or top 4 inches.
Front Side windows: Must allow more than 35% of light in.
Back Side windows and Rear Window: Any level of darkness can be used.
Please note that complying with these regulations is crucial to ensure your vehicle meets the legal standards for safety and visibility.

The tint is installed on the inside of your windows. This not only ensures a clean and professional application but also protects the film from external elements such as weather or debris. Our skilled technicians use high-quality materials and precise techniques to install the tint on the interior side of your windows, providing maximum protection and longevity for your investment.

Yes, like any other surface, the tint can be scratched. However, with proper care and maintenance, scratching should not occur. We recommend avoiding using sharp or abrasive objects near the windows and being cautious while entering or exiting your vehicle. If scratches do occur, they can often be repaired without having to replace the entire film. Our team is always available to assist with any maintenance or repairs needed for your tint.

Yes, installing window films can indeed contribute to lower energy costs. Window films serve as insulators, regulating the temperature within your home. During summer, they reflect heat, helping to keep the interior cool and reducing the need for air conditioning. In the winter, they help retain heat within the room, lowering heating expenses. Plus, they block harmful UV rays, protecting your furnishings from fading over time. While the actual savings will depend on factors like the size of your windows and the climate in your area, you can expect to save up to 30% on your energy bills. It’s a one-time investment that continues to pay off in the long run. Not only are you saving money, but you’re also doing your bit to reduce energy consumption and contribute towards a greener environment.

Yes, window film can significantly enhance the privacy of your home or business. Due to its reflective properties, the film can create a mirror-like effect when the light source is stronger on one side than the other. For instance, during daylight hours, this means that anyone attempting to look into your home or business from the outside won’t be able to see through, providing you with a sense of privacy and security. However, do note that the effect may not be as pronounced when it’s darker outside and the lights are on inside the building. It’s a subtle yet effective way to increase your privacy without compromising on natural light.

The lifespan of your window film largely depends on various factors including the type of film, the orientation of your windows, and the climate of your area. However, most high-quality window films typically last between 10 to 20 years. Some films can even last longer if they are well-cared for and not exposed to harsh conditions. Bear in mind, that it’s important to get your window films installed by a professional for optimum life expectancy. At Simply Cool, we proudly stand behind our products and assure their longevity.
