They did a phenomenal job on my car along with helping to fit my car in on short notice. They have a great facility with a nice sitting room in case you need to stay and wait. My car turned out perfect and I would highly recommend them.- BRANDON K.
It was about $300 - $400. They do a really good job. They're upfront and honest. They're fast and they know what they're doing. The other thing was $2000. They were great. They were fast and efficient. They really knew their product and they knew how to install it.- David B.
Bottom Line -- This company skipped an essential part of the installation of the security film. If you're going to choose this company, be sure that the invoices itemizes all aspects of the installation.
I have to distinguish between the installer and the company. I think the installer was fine. He arrived on time and seemed to do a good job installing the film (e.g., no bubbles, followed 3M protocol). I think the difficulty stems from the company's salesman not knowing the product well enough to understand what is required in the installation.
On the positive side, Tint Guy provided a quote very quickly. That's always nice. After that, things didn't go so well. First, the salesman was supposed to confirm inventory and then contact me again to confirm my requested installation date. Instead, I had to reach out to him after a week of no response. Second, I don't think the salesman knew the product that well, and that almost caused them to miss my requested installation date. (The date was a hard deadline for me.) The salesman told me that they may not be able to make my installation date. The installer later told me that the salesman wasn't familiar with dimensions with the product and didn't order enough to complete the order. They then had to rush a second order to meet the installation date.
But these are small potatoes compared to the rest. The film that I wanted is normally installed with a bead of structural sealant around it to keep the whole sheet of glass from falling out if it's broken. The sealant also improves the strength/resistance of the glass with the film. (Without the sealant, the film still resists shattering, but it can be easily punched out around the sides. Basically installing the film without the sealant just ensures the robber doesn't cut himself....) 3M literature advertises the sealant as being part of the overall product. Because this is part of the normal installation, I did not look for this to be specifically called out in the quote. Once the technician was on site and was putting up the film, I noticed that he was not installing the sealant. He said that it wasn't on his work order, that most homeowners don't ask for it to be installed, and that it would be several dollars per foot to have it installed. (That price for the sealant would have rivaled the price of the entire product!) He went on to tell me that the material would be smelly, would make my windows look ugly (because the sealant has to go 1/2 inch into the glass and frame and the installer said the sealant would be black, whereas my windows were white), and wasn't worth it because my windows were poor quality.
After this, I was so desparate to get the sealant installed, that I contacted the other companies whose bids I had turned down. Their quotes for installation included the structural sealant, although it was not itemized on the invoice. When I asked them about that, they responded that this was part of the normal installation process.
I felt a little like the situation with Tint Guy was a bait and switch. While I understand that most homeowners may not choose to have the sealant installed, I think that's due to a lack of knowledge. On specialized products like security film, you assume the company will install it according to manufacturer's specifications. I think Provider name locked. should have explained that the quote did not include this normal part of the installation. They could have let me know up front, and I could have paid extra to have it installed or could have gone with another quote.
To make matters worse, installing the sealant is not something I was able to pay another company to do. It is a pain, so the other companies won't do it unless it comes with the installation of the film. I ended up having to do it myself, which was a huge hassle factor. If I'd known this up front, I would not have chosen this company.
P.S. The sealant was not smelly, comes in a white to match my windows, and the inch on the frame and glass isn't really noticeable!
