Excellent Service

We visited the Skylights Unlimited booth at the Toronto Home Show last spring. We decided to install three sun tunnels in our somewhat dark bungalow. The Skylights Unlimited crew did an excellent job in positioning and installing the sun tunnels to maximize the lighting in our kitchen and bathroom. We are very pleased with the work.

Thank you so much for the feedback.
The 3 Velux Sun Tunnels were enough to light up the whole kitchen, eating area and bathroom.
It was a pleasure working in your home.
Enjoy the sunshine.

replacement of old skylight with Velux

We had an old skylight that needed to be replaced, and Denis came quickly to give us a quote, explain the product choices and gave us recommendations, and explain why the skylight was leaking. The quote was very reasonable, and Denis also offered to look at my other skylight for me to make sure that it was okay.

The install team consisting of Ed and Brian came out later during the month to make the installation. Very polite and professional. They took the time and care to make sure that the Velux skylight was installed correctly, explained to me what was done, and also gave me useful comments/recommendations on my other skylight and overall my roof.

Very good skylight experts and I will definitely use them again.

Thank you so much for writing about this scary incident.
I was so dismayed when you called and said that a man approached you on your lawn to tell you that your skylight looked like it had a serious problem.
We had just installed it for you last year, so this seemed rather strange. especially since this well dressed fellow seemed to be able to make such a dire assessment just by looking at the skylight from the street!
The story you told about what followed is something that should be in a crime novel.
Since you felt worried about a possible problem, you let the man go inside your house to have a closer look at the skylight. He got up to the room with the skylight before you, and then you heard what sounded like a gunshot!!!
As you arrived in the room you saw a big puddle of water on the floor, but nothing on the skylight or tunnel or on the man.
This must have been frightening and strange.
But, you are not a fool, and you immediately asked "where did the water come from?". That's when the man tried to baffle you with BS. His "backed up water" answer didn't make any sense since there were no other water marks on the skylight or tunnel.
Then came the attempt at the big rip-off.
The man said that the skylight needed to be completely redone at a cost of $9000.00 ( much more than it cost to do all 3 skylights by our company) and it needed to be done immediately!
When you refused (good for you!), he threatened to report you to the city officials to try to frighten you.

It amazes me how someone could try to scam you so badly in your own home.
My guess is that he had some water in some sort of container, maybe a balloon, smashed it on the floor, and that made the loud bang noise.

When you called and told me about this, I was 99.9% certain it was a scam, but you were so upset by the whole situation that I wanted to come over and reassure you.
So, when I came over to see the skylight, it was easy to see that everything was fine and this man was trying to scam you.
He saw a senior person and tried to take advantage of you....but, you were smarter.

Please remember, any good contractor would have a card, documentation and proof of WSIB, insurance and license. Always ask for it.

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.
