Response by Houseworks Daylighting Solutions: Of course we appreciate good reviews but our records show that we didn't do any work for this customer. To be fair, we were out to see her in 2014 and left a proposal, but under this name we cannot find that we did any work here. We've made several calls to the number we have on file but have been unable to get this straightened out.

Review by in Bloomingdale, IL
Response by Houseworks Daylighting Solutions: We were able to install two VELUX Sun Tunnels for this customer. Sun Tunnels (or tubular skylights) are really a "feel good" product. Our customers love how much light they add to a home...and at a very affordable cost. Thanks to this customer for giving us a good review.

Review by in Naperville, IL
Quick turna round on replacing a leaking skylight
Response by Houseworks Daylighting Solutions: Another Five-Star review...we work hard to be a company that deserves the highest reviews and appreciate this customer confirming our efforts. There are lots of companies (contractors, handymen, roofers) who claim to be "skylight experts"...our reviews confirm that we really are the experts we say we are.

Great employees. Excellent work.
Response by Houseworks Daylighting Solutions: ANOTHER FIVE-STAR...We appreciate this customer's recognition of the quality of our employees and our workmanship. Houseworks employees are all VELUX trained and certified. Our average installer tenure is over five years so they know what they are doing. Hiring and training top-quality people results in customers who are pleased with the job we do and give us high reviews.

Salesman did'nt do his homework
Response by Houseworks Daylighting Solutions: NOT EXACTLY TRUE but we understand how the customer might feel this way. In truth, when our installers removed the old skylights, the new ones were the wrong size. This was due to errors in the previous installation years earlier. Our salesman could not have known the situation until the roof was opened up. The job was completed at no additional cost to the customer using the correct skylights. We stand behind our work and assume the customer is pleased. We're sorry for the confusion but we made good on our price and the job looks great.

Review by in Northbrook, IL
Anxious because I had a leaky skylight and was about to leave 1/1 for AZ for 2 months, I chose Houseworks because Buff gave his word he would get it done before I left. SInce he is involved in Scouting, I trusted he would honor his promise. He did. Ron Luth came out on a blustery, drizzly cold Sunday after Xmas and performed an excellent job of installation and thorough clean-up. I am extremely satisfied with his work and would heartily recommend Houseworks Daylighting Solutions. P.S. The Velux skylight is so clear it looks like there isn't any glass! Guy G. Northbrook, IL

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
