    My experience with Galen was awesome! The price was very reasonable, actually cheaper than what I thought it would be! We were getting direct sunlight through our living room windows, creating a huge glare. It also was attributing to the room becoming to hot to even sit in. Galen was very knowledgeable about what product would work best with our situation! He even helped clean our ceiling fan since his ladder could reach it! Very nice man to work with! I will be using him again for future window tints!

    Great job and great guy
    Galen did a great job on my sun room windows. It was pretty quick as well and he cleaned up after himself. He came and brought samples beforehand for me to see. I believe the price was good for the work he did. I could have spent more on the tools myself and not have guaranteed that I would have done it well myself the first time!! Thanks Galen!! Highly recommend.

    Amazing Customer Service & Fair Price!
    We had an amazing experience with Galen's tinting for an office building located in Fort Worth, TX. Galen responded to my inquiry in a matter of minutes and was at the job site within the day. They were quick and very informative when giving us options and were able to install within 24 hours at a very competitive rate. His team is incredibly professional, kind, easy to communicate with & more than willing to ask any questions that we had. We would highly recommend them to anyone in the DFW area looking for tinting!

    Galen was quick to respond to a window frost film project for a client of mine and made the process very easy for the both of us, he was a pleasant individual and very easy to deal with. The project turned out to be a success and my relationship with my client is that much better because of him. I highly recommend him!

    We wanted our kitchen skylight to be tinted because the sun shining through it made our whole house heat up like a green house. We thought having it tinted would be a good idea but couldn't find anyone until we lucked upon Thumbtack and Galen. He couldn't tint it because it isn't glass but he came up with the ingenious idea of covering the outside with a tent like cover. He ordered and received it in a couple of days and installed it immediately and you can't even tell it's there and the house is considerably cooler. I would HIGHLY recommend Galen for tinting of any kind!

    Tinted 2 large patio/deck doors with side windows plus 2 half round windows. Galen was professional throughout the process. He went thru all my options in detail and then provided a reasonable quote on the spot. He worked with my tough schedule. The windows look fantastic; even better than I expected. Would give him 10 stars if I could

    Galen did a great job installing solar film on my west-facing windows where the afternoon sun was beating down on my leather couches. He is very courteous, punctual, and professional.
  • Catherine S. Mar 18, 2016
    Fabulous work. Always very courteous, professional and punctual. He was a fast worker and very pleasant... Non-smoker, quiet and cleaned up after himself. I highly recommend Galen Mabe.
  • Dana S. Mar 15, 2016
    Galen tinted the windows in my great room. I was concerned that the tint would be dark and noticeable. He suggested a perfect tint for the room and applied it so perfectly that you can't even tell the windows have tint on them. Not only that, my furnishing had been fading due to the sun, but the tint has protected everything since. I wouldn't dream of calling anyone else to do tint work.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
No really, there are so many different kinds of windows, films, and scenarios that it is best to see the job to quote it most accurately.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Generally, I will contact the customer or the customer will contact me. From there, we will usually set up a time to meet so I can show some of the films available and measure the windows for the quote.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have over 20 years experience and have tinted every kind of window know to man.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I got started in my uncle's company when I was in high school. I started tinting vehicles of all kinds for many years and eventually moved into the residential and commercial area. After many more years I started my own company.
What types of customers have you worked with?
All types
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently tinted a large bay window with a lot of french style panes. It took me a couple days, but it turned out awesome.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I feel owner operators offer the highest quality installation, and that is the most important part along with the recommendation.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Main concerns should be: Heat, glare, fading, privacy. Other concern are how light or dark of a film would suite their preference.
