Sal's House of Tint is family-owned and operated by Salvador and Michelle Hurtado. Like many
of the locals, we came to San Marcos to attend Texas State University, fell in love with the
community, and never left. We're passionate about sustainable living. In 2010, we decided to
make a life out of teaching others how to save energy and shrink their carbon footprints with
window film. A lot has happened over the past decade, yet quality remains our mantra. We're
so grateful for our community, our industry, and what the future has in store.
Although we are based in San Marcos, we also service Austin, Dripping Springs,Cedar Park,
Buda, Kyle, Wimberley, Driftwood, Luling, Lockhart, New Braunfels, Schertz, and San Antonio.
