Home Window Tinting FAQs

One of the most effective ways of making your home windows private is by having them tinted. Window tinting is most commonly done on car windows to achieve the same effect. Yet, you can make use of the same resource in place of blinds in your home. Common as this concept may be, many aspects of it remain unclear to homeowners.

Here are answers to a few of the most asked questions on window tinting.

Is It Legal to Tint My Home Windows?

The laws vary depending on the state, but generally, the law permits car tinting along the top 5 inches of the vehicle's windshield; for side and rear windows, tinting should typically let in at least 35% of the light. Additionally, reflective material is not allowed on vehicle windows.

One important thing you need to know about tinting your home windows is that state laws don't restrict it. Unlike with car window tinting, where, depending on your state, you're required to have front windows let in at least a certain percentage of light, there are no legal regulations around how tinted your home windows should be. You can have the windows tinted to your desired level according to the look you want to achieve.

Are There Benefits to Tinting My Home Windows?

There are several benefits to tinting your home windows. The first and most obvious is privacy. Tinting your windows makes it hard for people outside to see into your home. This keeps people with bad motives away as they don't know if your home holds anything of value.

Tinting your home windows also works to add curb appeal. Your home is an investment that will eventually bring you revenue. You need to renovate and update it frequently to keep it appealing to potential buyers. While repainting and repairs need to be done often, tinting your windows is an improvement that will last years and requires little maintenance.

Another potential benefit to tinting your home windows is saving on electricity bills. The dark film on the windows helps keep heat inside the house, thus, reducing your electricity bill during cold seasons. It also refracts heat from outside, keeping the house at a balanced level during hot seasons. This also works to protect your furniture from fading due to the sun's rays.

How Much Does Tinting Home Windows Cost?

The cost for home window tinting can differ according to the kind of tinting you want and the size of the windows. Pricing is also different in each state. For more information or a quote, contact a business that offers home window tinting in your area.
