According to your avatar you're a solar control film specialist.

Depends on the product (most likely silver 20), size, how easy it is to reach, etc.

Of I know about the film and the job just asking if there is something in particular I should focus on. It is

difficult to reach of course.

But

I don't know know if it is in diagonal roof or just align the sky ( mean vertical) someone who might have got this kind of jobs might remember some tricks

have you even seen the job?

what type of glass?

exterior installation? interior?

why does the customer want to tint them for? heat? glare? privacy?

silver 20 exterior would be best to do with a 5 year warranty and edge sealant :)

Ok good consideration.

Thanks

I use a filmhandler, so I can cut the film exactly the size I need and fit it without trimming because trimming on skylights is a nightmare. If the light is way up there, I'd charge 60 to 90 each. If it's reachable with a 6 to 8 ft stepladder, I'd probably charge less, unless it's bigger than the standard 18 x 42 we see around here a lot.

You may want to check the skylights to be sure they do not have a laminate as you can damage them. Use a UV meter to check and if the reading is really low I would advise against film. The glass is very expensive if you damage them so be cautious.

Lots of questions:

Size? Height?, Accessibility?

Tint for what reason - block heat?, glare, fading?

Tinting is for glare and extreme heat actually

the glass was laminated and we choose the option of exterior film, better I think
