A selection of 121 homeowner reviews:
“Spectrum was great, and we would use them again. They tinted some dormer windows in our new house so that it would keep the rays from damaging our furniture and rugs. They did it on three very high dormer windows. I would give them an A.”
“It was very good—outstanding. They showed up on time. They were neat and clean. They did a great job. They get an A.”
“We had a very positive experience with them. They did some window tinting. The people that came were competent, and they did the work well. The material that was installed was exactly as we ordered it, and it's working. I'd rate them as an A.”
“It was a very positive experience. They were great, and they knew what they were doing. I would give them an A+ rating.”
“I would give them an A+, and I would recommend them.”
“Originally, they put on pane sun-reflective material, but the homeowner's dogs scratched it. So, they came out and replaced the coating on a few panes. They seemed to do a really good job—A+. I have recommended them.”
“It was pretty good. They did home window tinting. I would give them an A.”
“I think they did a great job. They had to come back and redo something, but they were very prompt and took care of the issue. It was very wet when they put it on, so that caused some issues with the installation. But the guy that they had was very professional. He was a very qualified, hard worker. I can't say enough about the quality of the people, and I think the product is a good product. They took care of everything, and we're just very satisfied with how quickly they responded when it didn't work quite the way it should have, initially. I would give them an A.”
“They did a good job.”
“They did a good job.”
“They did a fine job, in general. I would use them again.”
“It was good—no issues. I have no complaints.”
“There was a single person. He did the job quietly and efficiently. I would give them an A.”
“We did a semi-translucent film. Bottom line, I was satisfied with the results.”
“They tinted multiple windows. I'd give them an A.”
“The end product is good. The installer was wonderful. Jim did just what he said he was going to do. They did it twice. The first time, we liked what they did so much we had them come back the second. They did several windows, and we did it on a trial. They replaced a couple windows, and we were so pleased with them we had them come back and do more, and we plan to do more with them again next year. They get an A.”
“Spectrum did great. I'd say they were great with everything. It works fine, and the guy did a tremendous job.”
“They do a great job. I'd give them an A+.”
“They did a good job for us. They stay on course when they give you a time frame. They are very prompt in keeping their appointments, and that's really helpful to the individual on this end. Sitting around waiting for contractors is very, very upsetting at times. We've used them several times, and they've always been great. We're real happy, and the product has been good too. They did window tinting. They were recommended by some other people. I'd definitely give them an A.”
“They did the windows. I enjoyed working with them. They show up on time. I would give them an A.”
“They did it a while ago. I would give them an A.”
“I think it's great. I did have an issue when I first put it on. One of my windows had cracked, and the guy was right on top of it. He came out and serviced it. I haven't had any problems since, and it has reduced my energy bill. I would grade them as an A.”
“They were very professional and got the job done, and it looks great. I'm really happy with it. He got it done in a hurry, got out of here, and it was great. They did window tinting—like a Low-E kind of tint—on one door on the back, and all the rest of the windows were on the front. I'd give them an A. They were great.”
“They did the tinted windows. He was really good. I liked the product. The installer was really polite, nice, and cleaned up everything. Excellent job. I had them do a sunroom and then doors. I had eight large windows. It took a while, but he got it done in half a day. I'd give them an A.”
“They did a good job. They did what I asked them to do. They tinted the living room windows and one of the hallway windows. They're very nice and on time. I'd give them an A.”
“They did window tinting for us. I haven't had any issues.”
“Spectrum Glass is good. We didn't have any trouble with them. He came on time, and he came when he said he was coming. We've had a problem a few times with people not showing up when they said they were going to be here, but he's not one of them. He came when he said he would be here. There were several rooms, not all over the house. The customer service was OK. No complaints, in other words. Our expectations were met. A neighbor recommended them. I'd give them an A.”
“I liked Spectrum's owner. He was very personable, and he answered all my questions and showed me the differences between low-E glass and the film. He really did an outstanding job. The product does what he said, so it's very good. I don't have anything negative to say about the experience; it was all extremely positive. They get an A for their excellent work.”
“I liked everything about Spectrum. They did exactly what we wanted, they were timely and friendly, and the product is great. They put tinting on all the windows and replaced a couple of them. It was a big job, and the customer service definitely stood out. They did a perfect job. We were well pleased, and we're picky. We've recommended them, and we would give them an A.”
“Spectrum did a great job. They tinted my windows. They were fast and got me what I wanted—I love it. I'd rate them as an A.”
“Spectrum Glass was quick, efficient, and very neat. We have two stories of floor-to-ceiling windows, and they did all the windows that face west and north. We like the windows—A+.”
“The installer was very friendly and informative, and he did a great job. I would recommend them, and I'd give them an A+ grade.”
“I would say it was a little job—about five windows. They did a good job; it's been fine. I chose Spectrum Glass because they were recommended. I would rate them as an A+ company.”
“I had a positive experience with Spectrum Glass Coatings. They should get an A.”
“I thought Spectrum Glass was good. I'd give them an A grade.”
“He tinted all of my windows, so it was a big job. I helped the guy out. He said that they had to move things away, so I moved everything away. When he walked in, most of the furniture was moved away from the glass, and he said, 'This was so much faster than I expected.' It was really quick and easy, but he said that my having moved a lot of stuff helped. I looked in Best Pick Reports, and I picked them. They earned an A.”
“The service has provided a lot less glare in the house, and I think it's provided better light and savings on energy. They were very efficient in everything they did. I chose them because they just seemed to be better than the other places I was considering. I would give them an A.”
“I liked that they were quick, and the work looks nice. I heard no complaints. I chose Spectrum Glass because they came recommended. They should get an A.”
“I wanted to keep the sun from ruining some curtains and stuff, so I had tinting put on four or five windows, and the film has done a great job. It's done what it's supposed to do. I chose them because somebody I knew had used them. They were good—an A-grade business.”
“They did the tinting on 19 windows, and they were in and out. The salesperson was very responsive—his name was Jim. It would be hard to say that the bills have changed, but they seem to be much improved, and I think Spectrum Glass was a part of it. I'd give them an A.”
“They did window tinting, and they installed some glass. They did a good job, they were on time, and they were very professional. I called them back because one of the glass parts got broken, and they came back and repaired it for me. They deserve an A+.”
“Spectrum Glass tinted four windows in my kitchen. I had considered replacing the windows, but I didn't need to because the tinting decreased our energy consumption during the summer. They get an A+.”
“Spectrum Glass applied a tinted film to all the windows on my house. They were professional and super efficient, and I got exactly what I wanted. It was a great experience. I'd give them an A+.”
“Spectrum Glass applied tint to our windows, and we're quite happy with it. We have no complaints at all. They're A+.”
“Spectrum tinted four whole windows and a half window. The quality of the work that they did was excellent. I would use the company again. In fact, we'll buy their windows from them if our window ever gets broken because it'll come with the film on it. I would give them an A+.”
“I would say they're very professional. They did window tinting, and the quality of work was excellent. They were very good and also very knowledgeable. I would grade them as A+, and I would tell others they are a good company.”
“Spectrum Glass just did a good job on the tinting. It took place probably close to one to two years ago, and I haven't had to call them back for any reason since then. I would give them an A+.”
“They put tinting on glass installations. They were clean, quick, and accurate. They didn't mess up. We had four windows tinted—nothing too elaborate. They came out and gave us a couple of options and recommendations, and we went with what they recommended. We didn't put anything on our windows that would really impact our heating; it was more privacy related. There was one window that we did for heat stuff, and there has been a noticeable difference in that, but the others were privacy related. I think I found them through Best Pick Reports. I would give them an A+.”
“I felt like they delivered on what was promised. They were very thorough, they cleaned up after themselves, there wasn't a mess, and it took about the time that they said it would. It's one of those where I don't really remember everything because it went so well. I would recommend them to anybody. I've now had a summer of the sun beating down on the windows, and it's been much better. I did it primarily for the heat coming in because our house faces the west, and I feel like I've gotten what I paid for. I called them from the Best Pick Reports, and I liked their whole process in getting the quote and getting information back in a timely manner as opposed to other companies. I'd give them an A+.”
“They showed up when they were supposed to. There was one minor problem in the coating, and they came back right away and fixed it. It was just window tinting. I think I found them in the Best Picks magazine. They even called me a couple of days ago to make sure that everything was still going good. I would give them an A+.”
“I thought Spectrum Glass Coatings was very professional, and they did a great job. They put tint on five whole windows, and no light showed through after they were done. The windows were better with the tint on them. I would use Spectrum again. I thought they did a good job, and they're dependable. I'd give them an A.”
“Spectrum did window tinting for us throughout our entire home, and we were happy with their work. They did a good job. They seemed like they came with a good reputation, and they had the product we wanted. The guy was responsive when we called him to come out and take a look, so that was probably why we used them. I would give them an A.”
“They did window tinting for me, and they were prompt. They came out and gave us a bid, and then they were able to come do the work relatively soon afterward. They were clean and efficient, and the windows have stayed good. The guy that came and did our estimate and all was really good. I'd give them an A+.”
“They did window tinting. It was a good product with on-time delivery. I haven't had to call them back about anything. They installed it, and the people were professional and friendly. Customer service was good. They deserve an A.”
“Primarily, Spectrum did the window tinting, and then they replaced some glass. I'd give them an A.”
“They have good products, and the salesperson was very friendly and professional. I'm pretty sure I got them from Best Pick Reports. They were an A.”
“They had good customer service, and they did a good-quality job. I heard of them through my designer, and I haven't had to call them back since then. I would give them an A.”
“Spectrum did window tinting for me. They came out when they said they would and got the job done. I chose them because of the quoted product and all that stuff. They did fine. I would use them again if I needed additional work, but the work has held up so far. I'd say they get an A.”
“They were on time and efficient and did the job really well the first time. They did window tinting, and they were referred to me by our friends and real estate agent. I'd give them an A.”
“I had some window tinting done by Spectrum Glass Coatings. They did a great job. I liked the individualized service. They did, essentially, the entire house in early 2013, and I haven't had to call them back since. They're an A.”
“Everything went fine, and it was a very easy call. They came out, did what they needed to do, and that was it. I'd give them an A.”
“They did some of our windows for us. I liked that it was efficient. They came in, and it was simple for them to put up. We haven't been able to compare our bills yet to see if we're saving money from them, but other than that, it was no problem. They deserve an A.”
“The gentleman who owns the company was out here personally. He seems like he is a real fine gentleman and does a real good job following up on all his customer service. I had an issue with one of the windows, and he took care of it right away. It was just, overall, a good experience. I would give them an A+.”

Spectrum is excellent. I like everything about them. It was a big, window-tinting project. It looks perfect and blocks out the sun incredibly well—just like they promised. It's wonderful, so we're very happy. They're an A+.

They did a good job. To this day, I'm very happy about the work they did. There are no problems whatsoever. My house used to get very hot in the afternoon, but I've noticed a difference since they tinted the windows. I would give them an A+.

Spectrum was outstanding. They tinted our windows so the sun wouldn't come in and fade the carpets, and they were in and out in a heartbeat. It works as well as they said it would. They're A+.

They were awesome. They tinted four or five windows, and they were very professional, efficient, friendly, courteous, and clean.

They did an excellent job. I give them high marks. The quality of the product is very good, and the guys did it quick. They were very attentive, they just came in and got the job done, and the work was quality. That's pretty much it. Spectrum did good work and the product was right where we needed it to be, and because of that, we've referred several of our friends to have work done by them as well. The best thing I can do is refer them and help them out.

Spectrum worked out fine. It was not a problem at all. When we bought our house we had them do it. Then we replaced a door and wanted them to re-tint the door. They did it the first time, so when we needed to re-tint the door, we didn't look anywhere else. We just went back to the same people that did it originally, and we were satisfied with it. They came in and did what they said they were going to do, and there just weren't any issues. They were timely, prompt—I can't think of any issues at all. We were very satisfied. They've been good.

It was really, really good. I'm glad I got the service. I got a quote right there, and the job was done on time, so I have no complaints. As far as I can remember, everything was very swift. It was just one side of the house, which was facing west. On the east side we had some trees. After the installation I was there for like half a year, and it really worked well for me. I have no complaints. If I get a new house and the sun is on the way, I'll have the same service. They did very good.

Good, good. They just put up some UV tinting on one or two of my windows, and they did a good job. I had a couple windows that broke, so I was replacing those and I just needed to match them to my other windows. They were able to match it with their product. It's been a while, almost a year.

It worked out really good. I'm enjoying the product. They did a good job putting it on, and I'm still very happy with it. I couldn't really tell you if it actually helped reduce my bill or not. They came in and did the work real quick. The guy that quoted me was good, and the installers did a great job and were in and out of there really quickly.

Spectrum did the coverings, and everything went real well. I was looking at the windows yesterday thinking, 'I sure like those.' I don't know that I've noticed any change in utility bills yet. But, being in Dallas—last year we had many days over 100 degrees, and I'm interested to see what the difference will be this year. I have no complaints about the work or the product. The original guy I spoke to about getting the estimate was completely professional. The two guys that installed it were friendly and efficient. They made a mess, but they cleaned up the mess. It was just first class all the way around. It was a pleasure to deal with this company, because they're not all like that. So, it was a pleasant surprised.

I think they did a very good job. We're happy with the tint. We were considering calling them back for additional work. The installer that came out was very friendly and made sure that everything was taken care of and done correctly. He inspected the work after it was done. He suggested, 'Hey, you know, we can do this. We can do that,' and he gave us ideas. That's why we are considering calling him back. Overall, he was a super nice guy.

It was great. The coating that we had put on the window really changed the dynamic of the room that the windows are in. And the installers—you go down the list of characteristics of professionals, and they were there. It was good. They came in, put the stuff on the windows, and cleaned up. The only way you could tell they had been there was because it was cooler in the room. Compared to the whole house, we really didn't recognize any difference in bills. But then we only had them do three windows in the kitchen—they were the only windows that had exposure to the western sun. It has helped in the kitchen. So, it's a good product, and I think the guys did a good job.

Spectrum did a really small job for me—just one bedroom. I was happy.

They worked out good. I'm very happy with the quality of work and the personnel—they were very professional. Overall, I'm very happy with the work they did. I've recommended them to other people for similar work.

They tinted our windows back in the fall, and they were great. That was it—they did a great job for us.

They worked out fine; we have no trouble at all. The people that we dealt with were fine. We're just now getting into the summer season, so we don't know how much help the tint is going to be for certain windows, but we're certainly pleased with what we have.

They did a job for me last fall, and they worked out fine. They did a fine job.

They have a satisfied customer in me. They put a film on the door, and it's been working—so far, so good, and no problems. Actually, they were very nice also. I gave them a call, they came and gave me a quote, and we talked about different options that they offer. When they came back, I think they were done in about 30 minutes.

They did a good job with the window tinting. Everything was fine.

So far, so good. It just hasn't gotten hot enough yet for the windows really to be put to the test. We did it after summer and it obviously hasn't hit now, but when it's 100 degrees outside, that will be the telltale sign. The service was great, good—just as advertised. They came out quickly and did a good job.

They did fine. They did some repair work on some glass that was broken. They just had to do about four of them—they were small panes. They did the initial work about eight years ago, and they did a nice job. They did what they said they would, so I was pleased. I was satisfied with them and the product.

They worked out great. I would say our project was two thirds of an 11,000 square-foot job. They completed it to my satisfaction, and they also came back like a year later. I had to get a window replaced a couple times, and they let me wait on making payment. They were very good about just letting me get that window fixed and then coming back and tinting it. They were excellent. I'd use them again.

They worked out great. They did seven windows, and they did them excellently. It's definitely worked. They were really, really nice, and they were really easy to deal with. Everybody was super nice did a very professional job. Everything was great. They just did an excellent job.

They worked out great. They did the whole front side and part of the back. I don't know if my bills are reduced, I mean—we don't know our before-and-after because we were new in this house. So, I can't confirm that, but it does reduce the glare; I have the privacy that I wanted. You can't really see in. The owner is a great guy. He followed up. I did have one issue with the tinting, but they offered to come back and fix it like the next day. I actually have another job for them coming up here in the next couple months. I can't say enough good things about them. I looked at a lot of companies, and the reason I chose them was just because I thought the owner was head and shoulders above his competitors as far as customer service and thoroughness and that type of thing. They did a great job.

They were awesome. Since we face east, we called Spectrum so we wouldn't get so much sunlight in. They did pretty much the whole house. We have noticed a difference. The personnel were awesome.

So far I'm very pleased. Everyone from Spectrum was very kind; I didn't have any problems whatsoever. They were there, they had the job done in record time, and they did not have to come back. Just very pleased. They told me that they couldn't promise me that the temperature would lower in my sunroom, but I think it has. It seems to be working. It was just on the sunroom, but it faces southwest and has a glass top, so it was 20 degrees hotter in that sunroom, which made it 20 degrees hotter in my home. They knew it would reduce the glare and didn't know that it would cut the temperature any—but it did. I've waited a long time to do it and I'm glad I did. I am happy with it.

Spectrum worked out well. I liked everything. We just did the western windows, mostly for the temperature. It feels a little different; I'm not sure about the bills. We kind of did it a little bit later in the summer, so we couldn't have seen what the true impact was for like June and July. One of the installers might have been, I want to say, the owner's son, who might have been learning the business, and then there was another individual too. They were very professional, both of them. All very professional. A grade.

I'm actually moving, and the windows are one of the featured listings on the house, with all my upgrades and everything else. That's actually a line item with the phone number and company name, and I have a folder with the all the company information. It's a really, really good product. The owner of the company that I work for had gotten it done at our office, so I had Spectrum come over and do our house too. I have about 35 windows on one side of my house. I live on a golf course and it's due west, so it gets beat up with sunlight at the end of the day. The workers were excellent. The temperature has reduced, so I've actually recommended them to everybody that comes to my house and sees it—they should earn some business from me. They did wonderful.

They worked out terrifically. We wanted to reduce temperature and glare. We haven't had a whole lot of sun yet—it was just one window. They were very nice. Very nice to deal with. They came quickly, and they were very good. I have used them before—they've earned business. They were good. I'd give their name to people who asked me.

They did just fine. The guy was very professional, very friendly, and very helpful. He explained what he was doing and really took care with getting up there. It was some windows in kind of a very large living area, and it had windows on top of windows. He had to get up there to the window, so he took his time and did it right. That was real good. It was a little bit high up, but he did fine. We had to get up and do the top windows where the sun was coming in, so it was mainly trying to get it in there to keep the sun from coming in and fading out our furniture walls and stuff.

They're great. They were good. They've been doing work for the past ten years. Last time, it was a replacement. It was fine. They did what they were supposed to.

They did well, and I was happy with them.

They worked out very well—good service. They explained what was going on, and whatever they said, that's pretty much that's what they did. They probably did about three quarters of the house, and it came out to what I expected and what they advertised. Very good job.

They worked out really good. We love it. It had UV and the glare tinting. We get the sun in the afternoon on the windows, and now I can actually keep my blinds open—it doesn't cook up here. My parents came last year, and the big windows would glare into them, and they were like, 'God, you got to get that fixed'. They were very nice. I mean, they were quick and efficient, and they did it quickly.

Spectrum did very well. They put it on a sliding glass door on the sixth floor. We had to have it changed once because it bubbled up, but that was no problem; they came back and fixed it correctly, and it's done fine so far. They just did a good job, in and out, and it didn't take that long.

I used a tinting company that I got out of the Best Pick Reports called Spectrum. They were really good; that was a good experience. They did pretty much the entire house, probably like 15 to 20 windows. The product's been working for me. I would use them again if I needed to.

They're great. They were professional, and we have no complaints. So far I haven't had any issues. I haven't really seen a reduction in my bills, but I can tell I don't feel as much heat from the afternoon sun coming through those windows. I mean, I was hoping it was going to mean a reduction in my overall usage, but I really haven't seen that.
