Just to follow up on the installation of the 2 fantastic 14" Solatubes. I am so pleased with the results! Ken worked efficiently and I felt confident that work was being done well. Family and friends are amazed with the light I have now.

First,I wish to compliment your installation consultant Mr. Marty Miller. He recently installed two Solatube skylights in our home. In spite of encountering several structural problems with the house, he was able to complete the installation much to our satisfaction. His workmanship and concern for the cleanliness of his work area and our home and furnishings was very satisfying to us--the customer. Second, I wish to express our complete satisfaction with the product and the installation. The amount of light coming into what were formerly quite dark is amazing. I have found myself instinctively reaching for the light switch upon leaving the rooms with the new skylights. When I realize my mistake, a broad smile crosses my face. You should be proud to represent such a great product.

We had 30 of the 21” Solatubes with OptiView Diffusers installed in five of our classrooms. Each one of the grant recipients is thrilled with the quality of the natural light. It’s unbelievable. Even on a cloudy day we still have enough light in the classroom. By 9:30 a.m, I turn all the electric lights off. The students have become very energy conscious. They don’t want the electric lights on and are adamant about turning them off. It’s a complete success story. I wish every classroom could have Solatubes.

Just a note to thank you for the job done on our new Solatube. Marty, the person that installed the unit did a great job, he showed up on time, got right to work, and took time to place tarps to avoid making a mess. The most important thing was he time to work safely which was important to us. We are very happy with your product and would not hesitate to recommend your company to our friends.

John was very responsive, informative and professional. The installer was equally as professional. They did a great job and the new skylight looks beautiful. I would highly recommend Solabrite.

Had a large Skylight Replacement completed by Solabrite. Skylight was over 40 years old and started to get cracks in it. The process from calling, having service techs come out to measure, getting a quote, ordering the replacement product and completion of new installation was a little longer than anticipated but partially because of us wanting to compare prices and do our do diligence. The Solabrite techs were very efficient and professional and we are very happy so far with our new Skylight.

I wanted to share my amazing recent experience with the professionals at Solabrite as they helped with the installation of Solatube daylighting systems in my home as my Christmas gift to my wife. Yasmeen was extremely knowledgeable and patient as she helped guide me on the phone on the best solution for my home and was kind enough to schedule (and reschedule) the installation around my availability. On the day on installation, Mufid led a 2-person team for the install and provided some consultation on fine-tuning the solution. Ultimately, I decided to switch most of the Solatubes from 10" to 14" and add a 6th tube (when I had originally planned for only 5). Not only did Mufid have the necessary equipment on-hand, but he accommodated the extra unit and was able to complete the full installation in a single morning. An amazingly professional and knowledgeable team--I would not hesitate to call them again if want more Solatubes or desire upgrades (i.e. dimmers, filters) in the future. Thank you, Yasmeen, Mufid, and the whole team at Solabrite!

So. I've had 3 different experience with Solabrite. 2 new Skylights, 1 SolaTube, 2 solar attic fans. And guess what?. All works. Job's where all done in time. Everything cleaned. Payment over the phone. Respected COVID-19 mask and distance. So we are more than happy. House stable temperature. Tons of light inside the bathrooms. And after many rain and windstorms I'm happy to say there no leaks. We are happy and returning customers.

We recently had a Solar Tube installed in a bathroom, along with a solar powered attic fan. The instolation went very smoothly and only took half a day. We are very pleased with the results.

I am happy that I found them through the paper ad that I normally threw away :) We wanted to have skylight installed in our bathroom but we couldn't find anyone after calling all possible vendors on yelp. When I called them, the guy I spoke with was very helpful and was able to tailor a plan that fits perfectly with our needs! Their schedule is extremely flexible and they were able to send someone to work on the project within 1 day. The installation went smoothly and the guy they sent was able to give us helpful advice (we wanted to install the skylight right above the bathtub but he said the moisture would destroy it). Not only that, he was able to install our existing switch light within the skylight, where we can have brighter light at night and natural sunlight during daytime! Their pricing is extremely fair and we will go back to them if we ever need a new skylight installed (trust me, I have contacted over 10 vendors on yelp and their pricing goes from $2k to 3k).

Technician Ken is very knowledgeable and his installation was remarkable, clean and the job was done right. My husband and I were very pleased indeed with his work. John, the owner was very kind and considerate with our present situation of financial crisis and worked with our budget. Overall, I will give this business 5 stars.

This is the second Solabrite that I have had installed. I am very happy with the product and also with the installation. They do a great job and it has added a nice amount of daylight to a dark area. We are even thinking of adding two more in the near future. I will definitely call them again!
