Window Tinting - Cost and Type

Window Tinting - Cost and Type

I just called a shop that has excellent reviews here in the North Texas area (Tritek Window Tinting.)

I asked them how much it would be for ceramic window tinting for the sunroof, back window, and 4 doors.
They told me that it would be $1,000 and take about 4-5 hours. I about dropped the phone, is this a normal price for ceramic tint? Seems a bit excessive although it is a lot of glass to cover. When I did a Google search, $100-$800 dollars was the expected range.
It gets pretty hot

I'm going to call a few more places but I wanted to know what ya'll paid for your window tinting and what type of film you used.
Is the Ceramic worth it? Should I go with something else? Thanks in advance.

Thats definitely pretty high in my opinion, there are places in Austin that'll do it all for 649 if you want the back glass roof done too. Consider not doing the roof and it should be around 299? (For ceramic)

SRod, that sounds pretty good and their ratings are really good too. Glad to hear they do one piece because I've heard some places trying to split it in half, yuck! Did you do the sunroof area? I've never done the windshield either but I've always been curious to see what it looks like, you have any pictures you could share?

Just paid $400 for ceramic 20% rear windshield (up to top defrost line) and 4 side windows in Rochester, NY. If I did it again, I'd probably go with 35% but it does look great and toddlers in back seat will be much happier!

I went with the legal limits in FL, ceramic tint, rear is to the top defrost line, and 4 doors cost $220

I paid $650 for Formula 1 Pinnacle Ceramic tint on all four windows and a onepiece on the back glass. Did not do the moonroof or windshield. I did 20% all the way around which isn't legal, but every other car in Los Angeles has illegal tint.

Pardon my stupidity, but what are ceramic tints? Isn't tinting just a thin film of sticky celophane-like material?

tswalace | 2019年4月21日

Just got a quote, gonna go Ceramic but thinking of not doing the rear this time. Field of rear view visibility is very narrow already and top half of rear is already heavily tinted...
