Great service!

Denis came and quoted the replacement of two old skylights and in the end, recommended that we only needed to change one of them which was welcome news that not every tradesperson would have the honesty to offer. The work was done so professionally -- there was no mess, they even taped together some old trim to make the job look more finished until we could get it property trimmed and finished. I am thrilled with the product, the service, the price. Highly recommend this company!

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.
