How to choose the right window tint installer
- Make sure they are licensed in your state.
- Reviews tell a story. Check BBB, Google, and Yelp.
- Experience makes a difference.
- Knowledgeable and patient estimators.
Tip #1: Make sure your contractor is licensed and insured. For the state of California, there is an easy way to find a contractor’s license and insurance information. Just click here to enter the name of the company or here to confirm their license number. You can see our license information here. Like many companies, we put our license number on our website in the footer or bottom of the homepage. The state of California has a special designation for window film or tint contractors.
Tip #2: Reviews are important when choosing a window film installation company. A diligent potential customer should check Google, Yelp, and the Better Business Bureau. We provide a page on our website where you can read most of our customer reviews in one place.
When reading reviews, look for customer feedback that showcases the company’s work ethic, communication skills, and installation. Here are some examples from real reviews:
- “The installers were on time and got the job done quickly.”
- “They were amazing, from the salesman to the installers and the front office. They showed up when they said they would and did the work in no time. Very flexible…”
- “Friendly, professional, timely, clean, reasonable, and 100% effective.”
Tip #3: Window tint is an investment and should be installed by a company with experience. Experience is important for a number of reasons. One, an experienced window tint installer will know how to work with different kinds of windows and doors. This knowledge is handy, as each home and office have different windows in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Second, the more experience a window tint installer has, the better they can find the right window tint for your project. Additionally, pay attention to the product catalog. For example, we use 3M Window Film and have a multitude of films to offer our customers.
Tip #4: Choose a company with knowledgeable and patient installers. You’ve made the call, and you’ve set up an appointment for a free estimate. It’s good to remember that the estimator is the first in-person contact you’ll have with the window tint installation company. That first contact tells you a lot. What should you listen for from the estimator? Your estimator should have a comprehensive knowledge of the window films available. They should ask questions to understand what you want window tint to do for you. A good estimator should also be patient and friendly.
