    "too high too low...?"

    best formula is

    materials+
    what you wanna eat+
    where you wanna sleep+
    and who you wanna...

    150% markup, sounds like what most stores make reselling a product; a product that they don't have to go out to site, prep surfaces, install, eat their mistakes, use years of experience to apply, deal with the rest of the roll that they now own, eat any application errors, warranty, bill. Just thoughts.

    Too low. you should double you material costs, add the trip time, extra prep time to clean the windows (they need to be spotless) and the time and knife blades to trim on the windows.

    I usually charge at least 3x to 4x my materials on odd jobs like this. And if that still sounds too low, I add more. If you say it is $20 in vinyl for each window, that'd be at least $60-80 per window. More if you use transfer tape, application fluid, etc.

    I woul be sitting in the neighborhood of $75 - $95 per window sepending on complexity of install.
