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 - Superior was not a good installer 6 years ago, hopefully they're better now...

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

Very Professional From Beginning to End

We needed to replace a Velux skylight about 20' over our main staircase. I installed it several years ago, when I was younger. I really fussed over the tapered drywall well. Just recently, one of the layers of glass cracked, for no apparent reason. As the skylight was an old model, we could not replace the glass, but instead had to replace the entire skylight. Being older, I did not relish doing the work this time, but I also worried about the drywall well fit of the new unit. Along came Denis and his installers to the rescue. All personable and professional. When the work was done - all from the outside - you would never know that we'd had to replace the skylight. Inside and outside were tidy and neat. One of the easiest positive recommendations I have ever made.

Skylight replacements

Denis and his team were excellent. Denis was able to instantly identify the correct replacement for our 25+ year old Velux skylights that were difficult to access. He provided a clear and comprehensive quote with our options.

The installation team was professional and polite, and the work proceeded with a minimum of fuss for us.

Very Happy with The Experience

Had an old 4 x 4 skylight that was leaking. Denis was fantastic on initial consultation and took the time to show me what the problem was, and gave me options to choose from for a solution. The price was very competitive and when the team arrived, they took the time to do the job right, despite a few unforeseen issues with the setup on my roof. My old leaky skylight that was actually never installed properly was replaced with a perfect skylight and screen, that now has a proper water barrier and even looks better on the roof than the old one did!

Very happy with all aspects of my dealings with Skylights Unlimited

I had a new skylight installed two weeks ago by Skylights Unlimited. I am completely satisfied with all aspects of my dealings with them and would absolutely use them again.

Skylight Replacement

I hired Skylights Unlimited to replace my existing skylight. To my surprise they were able to accommodate an installation a week earlier than quoted time, which was exactly what I had wanted. The work was done very professionally, the installers were polite, clean and professional and they took extra care to take photos of the work and ice and water shield and flashing installation. I would definitely recommend them again in the future!

3 skylights in the living room

We would like to thank the company for an amazing job on our property. They installed three large skylights in the living room.

The owner Denis was very professional and took the time to explain the options.

Ed and Brian did a wonderful job on the skylights installation. They are pleasant and polite guys and were kind enough to provide a detail explanation of the installation process and skylight maintenance. The room looks much brighter now, and the skylights are the staple of the interior.

We will hire them again for another project.

Serge and Natalia

The job was done over just four days. We were waiting for the first rain, and no leaks!

Skylight replacement

We recently had two skylights, original to our 24 year old home, replaced by Skylights Unlimited. We were very impressed. Dennis explained all the options to us and didn't up-sell. The work was done promptly. The installers were on time and couldn't have been more helpful. The work was completed in a day as promised, with everything cleaned up and all the waste removed. They also provided photos of the finished installation, since we were unlikely to venture onto the roof to check, which seemed very thoughtful. The price was very competitive (given other estimates we received), but the service and care taken went to the next level. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Highly recommended.

Bathroom suntunnel

Living in a semi detached and having the bathroom on the adjoining wall meant no natural light for the bathroom. Skylights unlimited provided options (skylight vs suntunnel), cost and timing. Plus they had lots of good reviews. Everyone was timely and very pleasant to deal with. The crew was respectful and tidy. I love the light that the 14 tunnel brings into the room. Great job all around.

Better job done than my photography, but I think you get the idea.
