I hired Skylight Tools last fall for a complete bathroom remodel. A brief summary of everything: A+ Work! Highly recommended. My initial contact was with Josh, who provided me with the overview of the business and it’s goals. If you’re unaware, Skylight Provides a full turn key solution, with the design, construction and various project management tools to keep you informed along the way. That said, here’s a quick summary of the steps along the way. Design The design phase couldn’t have been easier. We provided them with requirements and a general idea of how we wanted the bathroom to look and feel. After a few days, they provided us with renders that were very close to what we wanted. After a few back and forth sessions, we were quickly able to lock in the design. Budget They worked closely with what budget I had available to find something we could agree upon. They were marginally more expensive than other quotes I received. However, a selling point for me personally was that they would stick to their quote. If they saw something after demo that would add to the initial quote, they would eat that cost. My home was a little older and having done a few home improvement projects myself, I know what kind of surprised and expenses could pop up. I was excited to know that’s all I would be paying. Construction Construction was FAST. The team is highly organized and makes great progress from week to week. Our quoted time of completion was about a month, and they hit it on the nose. The bathroom was technically functional earlier, and I did tinker with things, and thankfully I wasn’t reprimanded for it. Handling Issues There were a few issues after construction. Minor details that I noticed and bothered me. They were able to address these quickly and to a level that I was satisfied with. It was difficult to spot these as they have a separate team that looks over the construction team’s work with a fine tooth comb. Their own inspection team noticed things that I wouldn’t have noticed myself and they ensured these would be fixed. Communication Nothing but praises for the team. They have a dedicated text number to reach out to when I had any comments or concerns. I never once felt like I had any stupid questions. I felt comfortable and confident in all of their work. Other Their online portal provided a clean and organized place to find payments, design, permitting, and communication history. In addition to this, they also provide a punch list with a progress tracker so that everything they have on their TODO list is completed. Conclusion I have nothing but glowing praises for Skylight Tools and would highly recommend them for any bathroom remodel.Mar 5, 2020Verified
I met with Skylight to discuss renovating my bathroom. The process was well organized and I thought their use of technology was awesome. Their price was competitive compared to other general contractors' bids. We decided to hire a local handyman instead since the project is relatively small. But I'll be considering them for future remodeling projects!Jul 12, 2019
We remodeled our master bathroom with Skylight this spring. We wanted to improve the layout, get a more open and spacious shower, and improve the flow of hot water to the bathroom while reducing overall water usage in the bathroom. Skylight's designers helped us arrive at the right layout by creating 3D visualizations of various options and walking us through the pros and cons of each. They selected materials to match the aesthetic in the rest of our house. The work was well done. There were no major issues. All the minor issues that came up were dealt with quickly without any hassle. Skylight lived up to their fixed price guarantee - we paid exactly the amount they said we would when we started the job. They also finished the job within the timeframe that they originally estimated. We would recommend the Skylight team for any bathroom or kitchen renovation.Jul 11, 2019

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We offer fully fixed pricing, which means you know the final price of your renovation before work begins. We guarantee that your price won't increase during construction. This absolute budget certainty is unique in residential construction. Most contractors do not offer fixed price contracts.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Our process is organized into three steps: design, construction planning, and construction. During the design phase, our team works with the customer to design new layouts, view tradeoffs between budget and scope, and begin material selection. Once the customer is thrilled with the design, we enter into construction planning. In this step, details of the plan are finalized which includes material selection, permits, budget, and schedule. From there, construction of the renovation begins with constant tracking and monitoring to ensure the project goes on plan and on budget. Our team guides the customer through every step of the process!
- What types of customers have you worked with?We have worked with all types of customers and home renovation demands - from single room renovations of bathrooms and kitchen to larger scale full-home renovations. Customer satisfaction is a key priority for us! We have a personal concierge to guide customers through the renovation process and address any questions or concerns.
