Good skylight replacement

I had an old skylight which was failing. Denis came and outlined the process and options.
Due to the option I selected (auto blind with remote) he was clear that it would be a little while to be ready due to supply chain chip shortest. Ok, no problem.
When it was ready installation went well. All the work (other than laying drop clothes) was done from the outside. They did more than I expected as I thought I'd need to do a bit of drywall work afterward, however they sealed it and I'm happy with the final outcome.
I'll call them when my other skylight needs to be replaced.

I've had now had the new skylight ~5 months, I got it done just before winter.

Thanks for your kind words Adam.
The only item that we were delayed on last year were the solar powered blinds. Chip shortage.
So, thank you for your patience. Glad everything could come together this spring.
Enjoy the sunshine.

Skylight replacement

We needed 25 year old skylights replaced on our home. From our initial contact with Denis and his team they were professional thorough and extremely courteous in explaining the work that was required and the various alternatives. During the installation the team went out of their way to explain the work that was being done and were very respectful of our property and ensured that the work areas were clean after the work was completed. I would highly recommend them for this service and they are way ahead of their competitors in service delivery.

Great service, fast and friendly

After an initial phone call on Tuesday, Denis visited our house on Friday to inspect a skylight that was possibly leaking. His diagnosis was condensation instead. So he provided lots of advice and explanation for maintenance and monitoring. He also gave friendly explanation for what was happening with the hardware and the environment, which helped. If any future work is needed, my wife and I will definitely call Skylights Unlimited.

Replaced 2 Old, Leaking Skylights

Denis showed up right on time to assess and price the replacement of two 20 year old skylights. He capably described the process, innovative components from the manufacture and his own company that would be used to guarantee no leaks, superior insulation, and noise reduction from the exterior. If you’re interested, Denis also has a number of videos on YouTube.
I wanted to get our old and leaking skylights replaced before winter and, despite having numerous projects on the go, Denis was able to schedule the work three weeks after I received the quote.
On the day of the replacement, a capable and professional crew of three showed up on time, got all the work done, installed two beautiful new skylights, completed any kind of clean up and touch up work that was required inside, showed me the photos of the work that was done outside, and walked me through all the work completed and provided me a clear invoice that matched the original estimate.
The results? We no longer hear any exterior noise, there is no moisture penetration to inside the house (despite very heavy rain fall in November and early December), we have much improved insulation that has resulted in a noticeable difference during the winter so far, amounting to an approximately 10% reduction in heating cost.
Thank you to Dennis and his team!!!

New skylights in loft bedroom

I am extremely happy with the work done by Skylights Unlimited. Denis advised me on the type, location, and number of skylights to install in my loft bedroom. I went with two, each with solar powered room darkening blinds, and one with solar powered opener. I asked if I should replace an old dome skylight in my bathroom, and he said 'no, it's fine, you should leave it as is'. Ed and Brian did a fabulous job on the installation. They put down tarps and runners where needed, and did a thorough cleanup after. I also asked Denis if he could recommend a roofing company to replace my roof. He did, and suggested that the roof work could be done during the skylight installation. He coordinated with that company (J. Stewart Roofing), and I am very happy with the results.

Thanks for your detailed review Jonathan.
We've been working with J Stewart for over 23 years and always end up with good results.
Doing the roofing and skylight jobs together guarantees that everything is 100% right from the start.
Enjoy the sunshine.

I have confidence in this company

My skylight started leaking, and I needed to have that addressed. Denis from Skylights Unlimited provided personal service, was very clear, did not try to oversell me, and he comes from experience. While I would have liked to have had the work done a little sooner, that reflects how popular the company is, as well as the ever-present concern for good weather conditions. They were able to accommodate me and get the job done. I am glad that I have a new quality skylight that will likely last and protect my home.

Thanks for your kind feedback and your patience on getting the work done.
It's been challenging in 2021 with all the Covid slow downs for products and delivery.
Your new Velux skylight will give you very long life and a much more comfortable inside space due to the high energy efficiency.
Enjoy the sunshine.

Replaced 2 Acrylic Skylights

The entire experience with the Skylights Unlimited team was excellent! It began the moment I got in touch for a quote. Denis was professional, very knowlegeable and a great communicator. Once the skylights were ready the installation was scheduled quickly. The install team, Jimmy and Alex, were efficient and skilled. The house was left spotless and the new skylights are a huge improvement over the old energy inefficient ones that were replaced. Highly Recommended!

Excellent service. Real pros.

Denis and his team replaced two old skylights in our home. The skylights in question were 30yr old Velux. Denis walked us through our options for replacement because our model was no longer in production. He gave us different options for pricing, and added more guys to the job to get it done in a day instead of two.

His team arrived promptly, were very good with communication and were done ahead of schedule. It was a great experience all around and worth every penny.

Thank you for your Kind feedback. Making new standard sized skylights fit into existing openings sometimes requires some interior modifications. Doing this kind of detail work is what separates us from the "average Joe" installers....we put a lot of effort into making everything match up well, and look good.
That way we can offer our client a completed job without any extra sub-trades costs.
