We had Solar Guys do ours Solar Lights are Better Skylights | The Solar Guys, about ten years ago. I believe they used to be in the squares on Vendor Nights and that is where we first became interested.

I would highly recommend both this company and the Solar Lights. We also invested in a Solar Star Solar Attic Fan which is excellent. I believe they have a sale through Dec 31.

Their website is loaded with Village testimonials.

I did see a commercial once for one called I believe a SolaTube. I think Solar Guys sell them. They were unique and very cool and an improvement on the standard solar tube.

We used Solar Guys and were very pleased. They're professional, work quickly and did a great job. Not the cheapest but when you're dealing with someone cutting holes into your roof you want to be sure to do your homework and we did.

Solar Guys is who you want. Between the two houses we have owned here they put in five solar tubes and two attic fans. We have had no problems to date with any of the installations.

Thanks for all the great recommendations! We only install the Genuine Solatube brand tubular skylights. They offer the highest performance guarantee while blocking out the heat and U.V. Give us a call and we can walk you through the process in just a couple of minutes including pricing. We still have install dates left this year which is great because you can take advantage of the 30% tax credit almost immediately. 1-866-669-5259

You will never believe the difference when they are installed. Great investment. People comment on how light our home is all the time.

Because of all the good reviews of the Solar Guys, we went there today. The are having a special and there will be a 30% tax credit with the night light addition(extremely reasonable). They are coming out tomorrow to install and I cannot wait!

Solar Guys are topnotch! We love our four sun tunnels.

Absolutely! We give a lifetime installation warranty. We are a licensed building contractor, roofing contractor, and solar contractor. We have over 73,000 installs in Central Florida so you would hear if leaks were a problem especially after the recent Hurricane. Most people don't realize but your "perfectly tight roof" already has many holes/openings (ridge vent, plumbing stacks, chimney, & exhaust vents).

If it helps...we just happened to have a home inspection scheduled for a couple of weeks after we had the tubes installed and they were done right according to the inspector.

I appreciate the fact that Solar Guys guarantee their work. And I like what I’ve seen. My issue is that adding one, or more, voids the roof warranty.
