new installation

There's many positive reviews here and Skylights Unlimited did not disappoint. Our installation was a bit tricky, with a steep roof, a long tunnel and uneven rafters and joists. The installation crew was on-time, efficient (2 days) and very neat. They did not leave a mess inside or outside the house. The final work looks great and adds much-needed light to a formerly dim room. All around a job well done!

Hi Gisele, thanks for providing some helpful feedback. With your new Velux Energy Star Rated Glass Skylights you will feel and see the difference. You'll find a lot less heat loss in the winter and a lot less heat gain in the summer…and no more leaks! Happy Holidays from all of us here at Skylights Unlimited Inc.

Skylight replacemenf

I needed my 2 acrylic domed skylights replaced and after reviewing several skylight installers on homestars and getting quotes, I decided to go with Skylights Unlimited and I was glad I did. Their quote was comparable to others and they actually matched a lower quote. Denis the owner came by assessed and described the work to be done which was nothing out of the ordinary. Their installers (Gerik and Goran) came on time and were providing me information throughout the whole installation. The only issue was the shingles that they brought did not match the existing shingles on the roof. Since it was the holiday weekend, many roofing suppliers were closed and Denis and Santo assured me that they will find a vendor who sells these shingles. After a couple of follow up calls with Skylights Unlimited, they found the shingles and their installers finished up the job and right on time as well..a day before the a huge rainstorm! They put enough ice and water shield so that no their would be no leaks and sure enough there wasn't. My wife and I are happy with the new skylights and they make a huge difference in terms of looks, noise and energy efficiency. I definitely woule recommend them to anyone who wants to use their services.

Hi Gerry,
We're glad you're happy. I must admit it was difficult finding your match for shingles. I recall even your roofer had the wrong colour on his quote. Thanks for your patience during our hunt for shingles. There is a huge difference going from Dome (acrylic/plastic) to Velux LoE3 Energy Star Rated glass skylights. You not only see the difference but also feel the difference. Enjoy your skylights.
Regards,
Santo

Skylight

I wanted to have my skylight replaced since last year just didn't know which company to go for. I was also confused by the type of skylight to pick, plastic or glass!

I was glad that I found Skylights Unlimited which provided excellent customer service and professional installation. Santo was very nice and he gave me good advise on the type to pick. The quote was clearly documented and price was good. My daughter was impressed by Denis' professionalism. The installation was done earlier than I expected. The installers were nice. The job was well done and site was left clean.

I am very happy with the new skylight and would highly recommend Skylights Unlimited to anyone !!!

Installation of an opening skylight

I had skylights unlimited install a remote opening skylight with a flared tunnel above our stair case. The crew showed up on time every day and did and outstanding job. They had to build a scaffold to get to the ceiling, and they took the care to pad everything out so our floors weren't damaged. They also built a plastic tent around the opening in the ceiling so none of the blown insulation would get into our house. The final result looks fantastic. It's been one year and we've had no issues of any kind.

Would definitely recommend them for your skylight project.

Replaced three skylignts in open kitchen area

We are very pleased with the new skylights. They give our open kitchen area a much better look than the original doom style ones. The installation team was efficient and courteous, and when the job is done the place was thoroughly cleaned up. Nice work!

The difference from acrylic, Dome skylights, to Velux Energy Star Rated Glass Skylights is huge. You will feel and see the difference. You'll find a lot less heat loss in the winter and a lot less heat gain in the summer. Your kitchen area will be a lot more comfortable.
Thank you for this great review.

Denis Charron or should I call you the Mike Holmes of skylights that just “does it right” in the GTA.
Thank you for your prompt, courteous and professional service in replacing a couple of skylights and repairing our roof leak.
Your install team detected the leak within minutes of arrival and provided assurances of a difficult shingle match.
From timely communication to a spotless work sight (not one roofing nail found) we now have condensation free skylights.
Top marks go to Skylights Unlimited and your entire team for a job well done at a competitive price.

Hello Peter. It was a bit of a challenge matching your shingles but we did it. Our guys are experts. There's nothing about skylights and the whole roof structure they don't know. It was a pleasure working on your home and thanks for taking the time to write this review. Take care,
Denis.

Dear Santo
We were thrilled with the work done by your crew, Gorran and Andrei, when they replaced our skylight. We had to replace a poor quality acrylic skylight due to poor installation by the builder. Your crew were most helpful. They took photos on my camera at my request and then came inside and while we looked at the before and after photos on the computer they explained the work they had done. It was most helpful.
In addition they were clean, courteous and cheerful. But most importantly, our new glass skylight looks beautiful and we have no more leaks.
We were pleased we chose to go with Skylights Unlimited.
Sincerely, Gillian

Cathedral Ceiling w/3 Skylights

Skylights Unlimited did a great job for us, from the beginning to the end. The design they came up with for our space was excellent. Their installers were courteous, careful and very good at their work, leaving the job site in “move in” shape. Importantly, Skylights Unlimited did the installation on time and on budget. We’re very pleased with all aspects of their service and would recommend them without reservation.

Thanks Marcie for this great review. It's exciting for us to build catherdal (vaulted) ceilings because the customer always loves it more than they ever expected. The increased height of the ceiling makes any space feel much larger. Also, adding a few skylights as you did brings in loads of natural light. Thanks again for this great review. It was a pleasure working with you. Santo
