Sky Light Replacement

The company SkyLights Unlimited were a pleasure to deal with. The assessment and quote was provided professionally and efficiently. They kept us up to date as to delays due to weather conditions.
The job was done efficiently, with everything well explained, the job site was clean. The staff were professional. Following the job, photos were provided of the completed project. I would highly recommend this company

Skylight Replacement

Amazing experience with Skylights Unlimited from initial contact to completion of the skylight installation. We were very impressed with the crew who replaced the skylight at height of over 20 feet, and on a pitched roof. We are happy with our new skylight and would highly recommend Skylights Unlimited.

Architectural Masterpiece

Its 30 months since Denis and his incredible team installed an absolute masterpiece of a skylight above our stairwell. The shaft is 13ft high, flared and extremely complex with structural issues and curved plaster where my walls met the ceiling as well as the fact that it was above the stairwell meant the staging area itself was quite complicated. The guys knocked it out of the park. The job was well planned, well communicated, flawlessly executed and the results were breath-taking. 30 months later we have had zero issues. The skylight has transformed our home which had a dark central stairwell. Our 2nd floor and the stairs have been transformed into bright and airy spaces. The Velux skylight itself is excellent. The solar powered remote control is amazing and closes automatically with a rain sensor.

If you are considering a new-install skylight I highly recommend Skylights Unlimited . Denis and his team were absolutely terrific and worth every penny.

skylight replacement

Totally professional in all respects. Sleek new window fitted seamlessly in an awkward location. Workmen were friendly, repaired some sloppy work left by others and cleaned up every speck both inside and out. And they sent us photos of their work, which otherwise is not visible from ground level. A nice touch. Michael B.

Sun Tunnel Install x3

We recently had 3 sun tunnels installed in our roof (2 hallway, 1 washroom). We originally wanted a skylight but Denis informed us it simply didn't make sense with the height of the roof from the attic. We went with Denis' suggestion for the sun tunnels and are very pleased with the end result! The installation went very well - everyone on the team was professional, courteous, and went out of their way to explain everything to us in detail. Would definitely work with them again and recommend them to anyone. Thanks!

Replaced Plastic Domed Skylights

The Company is FANTASTIC and very professional. We got quotes from 3 companies. The other two gave us a quote over the phone. Dennis, the owner of the company, came in person and inspected the whole roof and recommended only 4 out of 6 skylights that would need replacing. Was quoted 3-4 weeks for delivery of skylights and 2 days for installation. The installers, Ed and Brian, showed up on time and make an excellent team. Both men are very knowledgeable, they answered all of my questions. They were very efficient and cleaned up inside and outside after each day and completed the work in 2 days. Price was reasonable and the quality excellent. VERY SATISFIED !!!!

6-Year Old Skylight Leaking

We had Skylights Unlimited install a Velux Solar Powered Opening in our new home in 2014. In general the actual Velux skylight has been excellent - I like the solar-powered opening ability, and the auto-close when any rain is detected. We have had Velux come in to repair the unit - steam from a shower below rusted the battery connections in the skylight itself, but this is likely more of an issue with the bathroom fan installation rather than the skylight itself.

The real issue is with the join between the roof and the skylight. We're re-insulating the attic now (2020) and have noticed extensive water damage at this join - i.e. years of slow leakage at this join. Clearly this was not installed/sealed properly in an area where most customers would not see the issue for years.

Velux is a good product, but its also critical to get a good installer - Skylights Unlimited was not a good installer 6 years ago, hopefully they're better now...

-------

Dec 10 Update:

I've been talking with Skylights Unlimited about this issue and they shared the attached photo that was taken after the installation in 2014. Given that there is light getting into the attic along the join between the skylight curb and the roof, they strongly believe that the problem was with the original curb installation, and not their curb extension that they installed. Once I have a roofer get up there to fix the issue and take more photos, I'll provide a further update on this.

Regardless, Skylights Unlimited has been very professional about communicating with us on this issue.

Rating bumped due to how they are handling this....

We have just read your review and are very confused. You mention Skylights Unlimited at the beginning and then at the end mention Superior (another company). Which company did you deal with? Secondly, we have never been contacted by you and are not aware of this issue. We would appreciate receiving a call from you to discuss your problem. We look forward to hearing from you. Our number is 416 540 4232. Thank you.

Replaced Skylight

Dennis, is a super nice guy and you can tell from his demeanour he is an honest person. Something you need when you are replacing a skylight. Last thing you want is water in your roof. Came over, spoke about the work, provide a quote and got the job done. Also, add two vents for my bathroom exhaust fans.

His guys came and were super nice and professional. I would certainly recommend them and very happy with the work. Don't waste your time with others hire Skylight's Unlimited

- BTW, I'm not related or know anyone from this company. Found them through HomeStars
