There are many reasons your office or retail shop’s windows might need tinting, but the basic questions remain the same.
According to the experts at Sun Masters, here are the five questions that need answering by every window tint company you’re evaluating. Collect the same information from each of your potential vendors will give you a well-rounded picture of the field, and help you decide exactly who you trust for your office, hotel and retail windows.
1. What Type of Window Film Do I Need?
Many types of window films are available, and each has its unique properties and benefits. Ask your prospective window tinter to explain the differences between window films and which film is best for your particular needs. For example, if you want to reduce energy costs they may recommend a low-E film, or perhaps you’ll want security film for protection against break-ins.
At Sun Masters we use state-of-the-art film products manufactured by Xpel that beautify and protect your windows and glass doors. Our window film can protect your property from the sun’s heat and strengthen the glass against accidents and natural disasters.

2. How Long Have You Been in Business?
Experience matters when it comes to window tinting. It’s a skilled job. So, ask your tinter how long they’ve been in business and what type of experience they have. A reputable and experienced window tinter will be able to provide references, examples of their work, and answers to any questions you may have.
Sun Masters has been around for over 40 years, for example, and they trade on their integrity and word of mouth. A North Texas establishment since 1978, Sun Masters is one of the most established window treatment companies.
3. What is Your Process and How Long Will It Take?
The techniques for installing commercial tinting vary with the size and complexity of the job. Ask your tinter to explain the installation process and how long it will take. You can plan around that, and minimize the disruptions to your own business.
4. Is Your Work Guaranteed?
A quality window tinting company will stand behind their work and offer warranties on both film and installation. Ask your tinter what warranties they offer and what’s covered under each warranty. You’ll have the peace of mind of knowing you’re protected in the case of any issues with the install or defects in the product. With lifetime warranties available on window film and 43 years of dedicated service, Sun Masters is the window tinting company to call for commercial glass tinting, window frosting, window shades or safety glass.
5. Can You Give Me a Written Estimate?
Before committing to one commercial window tinter, get a written estimate outlining all costs associated with the project. You want a detailed quote that includes the cost of the film, the installation, and any other associated fees. This helps you compare different companies equally and fairly and make sure there are no surprises or hidden fees later on.
