Anthony installed a solar attic Fan. It's fast and professional. I am happy with the product and service. I hope this puppy lasts.

If you are looking for more light in your home, Solatube is the best product, bar none. Don't waste your time with anything else. They have the best technology and the best system.

I have had them in my previous home and now in the home I currently live in. They really work.

Solar Lighting Express is the local installer, and they really know what they are doing. These guys installed 2 solar tube lights (including one in a bath room that included a vent) without even entering the attic.

If you are indecisive, go ahead and do it, you won't regret it.

It's been a month since the installation of our solatubes and we can't rave enough about the amount of natural light in our home!  Since the installation, we've had countless days of rain and I'm happy to report there are ZERO signs of leakage!

I show this in HD network and show these guy at the San Mateo Home Show and decided to give it a try. Wow, that little thing sure give out a lot of light. I put one in my bathroom and hallway, they are so nice. Its funny when my parent came by and tries to turn off the light after going to the bathroom.

We had our skylight installed last August, and it is really great. Brings a lot of light to the living room, and the light feels natural. Installation was quick. The price is great too. If I could I would give 4.5 stars, because the installer didn't speak English very well, which made it a little hard to communicate. Nonetheless I'd buy from them again.

I LOVE my new skylights.  I had Solar Lighting Express come out to give a bid expecting this was the most expensive since I always see their ads.  Anthony came out on time and gave a no pressure in home consultation.  I held the bid and did my own shopping - My roofer quoted $900 per light, a contractor $850 per light (using the home depot or costco products) these guys were just over $500 per light (with coupon).

The workers showed up as scheduled and were done installing the lights and cleaning up in 1.5 hours (we had 3 lights installed).  Wow - it is amazing how much light this gives off.  

My only complaint - I had no idea how dirty the walls of my hallway were until they let the sunshine in - guess I'll have to go clean now.

My living room in my cottage was basically a cave as far as natural light. I got tired of having to have my lamps on in the middle of the day if I wanted to see.  I learned about the Solatube concept from some home improvement websites, and decided to give it a try.

I filled out the web form in late November and was contacted by phone within 24 hours by Anthony the owner came out to evaluate the living room. He recommended a certain fixture (flush to the ceiling) but I didn't think it would fit in with my craftsman type of decor. I chose instead square fixtures that looked very much like craftsman style.  In the catalog Anthony showed me, the fixtures emitted a nice low glow of sunlight and were beautiful.

The day of installation came (the next day), and the installer showed up right on time.  He spoke limited English. I showed him the attic access, and I left the house to run errands as the installation of two Solatubes would take a few hours. When I returned, I was very surprised at how they looked. The light in the interior of the living room was very nice, but the fixtures themselves were problematic. The way the sunlight was shining through, it literally looked like I had two huge fluorescent lights in my small living room!  The sunlight appeared as a bright white with the kind of lightning jig jags that a fluorescent light has. I was pretty upset as I had spent about $1,600 to look like I had fluorescent overhead lighting, and I detest overhead lighting.  Additionally, the fixtures were big and made my fairly low ceiling seem impossibly cramped (something Anthony had cautioned me on).

So you might be wondering why I am giving 5 stars?  Well, the customer service Anthony gave me was exceptional.  While I did give the installer a check for the work, I also called Anthony right away to voice my displeasure at how different the fixtures looked in reality than they did in the catalog.  He was very calm and explained that he would come back with additional options (more filters and the flush fixtures that he had recommended) within a couple of weeks.  

He arrived a couple of weeks later (was waiting on parts) and agreed that the fixtures didn't work at all but that the light in the living room was good.  So he took off the fixtures, added a filter, and then placed the new flush fixtures on. It took about 40 minutes to make the change and he was cheerful about it. I really appreciated his cooperation and cheerfulness, and that he was willing to come back out and make his cranky customer happy.  When he was done, and the new fixtures (which look super, by the way) were in place, I told him that I wasn't going to ask for a refund (the original fixtures were far more expensive than the flush ones he replaced them with) on the difference and that I really appreciated his customer service. He was surprised and (I think) relieved that I wasn't pursuing a refund on the difference.  I explained that if I had gone with the flush fixtures he initially recommended, he wouldn't have had to come back.  So it was a win/win.

Thanks, Anthony, and I am really enjoying the additional light!

Great prices, better products than the local retail stores.
You don't have to get installation, they also sell the parts so you can DIY or have your favorite handyman (husband) install them.

They sell a fantastic light tube or slick skylight for your home or business.  It is efficient and works really well.
Anthony, the owner, came to our house once and then I visited him at his shop 2 years later.  I was being indecisive.  Can I buy a version of their product at Home Depot and install it myself?  Would the product be the same and save me money?  Let me tell you my friends, I did the research for you.  I read articles written by professionals, I went to Home Depot to see what they offer and I had a contractor come over to give me a price to install the Home Depot light tube.  Do yourself a favor and buy a SolaTube from Solar Lighting Express.  They will be there in a few days, install in less than 2 hours (depending on your roof) and they left no mess.  $600 for the 10 inch tube.  It offers a tremendous amount of light in an area of our house where it was always dark and a real, full skylight would have cost $2000 to install. I wish companies would call after the installation or completion of a project and see if everything is fine.
Also, they don't have much of a showroom but what do you want?  They only offer one product with several variations.  
If you need more natural light in your home call Solar Lighting Express.
