    "I wish to add feedback I sent Skylight Specialists when they completed a job for me in Wellington a while ago.

    I wanted to first of all thank Sue, for your very thoughtful offer of dehumidifiers to help with drying out wet wood (this was a result of previous inept workmanship from an unqualified builder). I was amazed at such practical help offered.

    Secondly, I wanted to compliment the team of workers for the professional way they communicated with me and cleaned up after their work. Mo made sure I was fully informed and he spoke with me in a way that showed respect but warmth and friendliness. I was so impressed by your team – the last months have been fraught ones for me with rude and uncommunicative tradesmen who have left rubbish behind for me to clean up and have not turned up when they said they would.



    Finally, you came when you said you would, your documentation was clear and set out responsibilities and expectations and those guys worked on a day when the wind was dire, the rain poured, yet they delivered as promised.



    Impressive business to deal with! Thank you

    Mary

    "Skylight Specialists replaced 11 skylights, and our entire roof in 2018. It was an extremely complicated project involving an internal gutter, very steep pitch of roof, a significant number of angles (architecturally designed home) and 7 dormer windows (requiring the weatherboards to be removed, re-flashing, and then weatherboards put back on). We also got the guys to check and replace any insulation past its prime. The quality of their work is excellent, with great communication and service. We did have issues with the weather not playing ball - several continuous stormy patches - meaning we were very grateful they supply their own scaffolding, and have sufficient work to work elsewhere on high-wind/high-rain days. Right from the start it was clear Dave is very conscientiousness, an expert in terms of roofing and skylights, and matter of fact. We approached 9 companies (2 of whom said the job was too hard for them) re quotes for the roofing, given the size of the job, the level of difficulty and the expense, and Skylight Specialists was competitive on pricing and delivered on quality. We would recommend. Since installation, they have followed up to check all is going well. Great customer service"

    "The guys spent eight hours working hard to install our fabulous new skylight that opens. It looks great and has made working in the kitchen more pleasant as you get a nice breeze and we can hear the sea. Get Brien Electrical to do the wiring."

    "Your two men arrived late morning and completed the work by early afternoon.
    They were pleasant, industrious, obliging and considerate with a pride in their work, and appear to have done an excellent job.

    "Skylight Specialists have contacted myself to add a review on this site as I understand they have only just registered their company with No cowboys so have no history.

    We are very happy with the skylight, it looks great and really brightens up that area of the house.

    The team that installed were very professional throughout the installation and tidied up after they finished.

    "Sue has approached me as a previous client to please add feedback about our works we had done by Skylight Specialists. She said that Skylight Specialists has only just registered with No More Cowboys and they need some reviews on this for potential clients to read.
    Thanks very much to Skylight Specialists and their team. Sue and David were great to deal with, and the team onsite were excellent - I felt very comfortable having them around the house! Would absolutely recommend them any time!

    "Just to say a massive thanks for the team for the install. It looks fantastic and the guys did a great job. Especially given the hot weather yesterday. We are really pleased with the quality of the workmanship and the end result. The team were considerate, were tidy and cleaned up after, and communication was great throughout the process as well. Thanks!

About us
Around 25+yrs ago we were a small building company with David being the head tradesman and operator, we were approached by a company that had been importing skylights for many years. We took on the job of installing their skylights. We quickly discovered that we were spending most of our time repairing/maintaining all ready installed imported skylights of all brands. The main reason for this, is that the imported skylights are in our opinion are not suited to NZ's conditions - especially Wellington's harsh horizontal rain and high winds, not to mention coastal conditions.
We then tried sourcing around NZ and took on installation of NZ made skylights. However they still had their own other issues. This is when David then thought if this is the best NZ has to offer, we can do better. This is when we started to trade as Skylight Specialists "a division of ADS Building Services Ltd" and now this is all we do. We repair, manufacture and install Skylights throughout the greater Wellington Region with our own trade qualified team also having a Supply only service throughout NZ but excluding the Wellington Region.

What we do
Main services are:
Manufacture skylights and roof hatches to any size/shape/tint/colour/electric opening/rain sensors etc to suit your home - Our skylights are New Zealand Made for New Zealand conditions with glass rated to wind zones, external trim rated for coastal conditions if required and full Aluminium welded frames that will not rust, rot or weaken over time, with being welded this guarantees a watertight sealed unit. Currently on the market in NZ, competitors aluminium skylights are glued and screwed together (not welded) creating a weak point on the joins eventually allowing water to ingress. Along with other brands having an external trim of Zincalumne (not aluminium) which is spot welded in the corner joins which in time rust/corrode.

Repairs and maintenance to skylights and roof
Full installation service for skylights, hatches and re-roofing and the like. Re-roofing is only offered to clients requiring skylight works as this is all integrated into obtaining a top quality weather tight solution

Why are we different from others?
We are quite unique with having trade qualified Roofers, Builders and glaziers on our small team. Having this range of trades we can look after the complete project for you.
This also allows us to be LBP "Government approved licensed practitioners" in both BUILDING and ROOFING.
We do not contract out works to other companies to complete, so you know exactly who is completing the contract.
We also do not pay our team by the meter or job as this encourages the attitude of "get in - get it done-get out and get paid" which results in inferior workmanship.
We pay our team by the hour so they are to take their time to obtain a high quality result.
We are owner operated with often seeing David and Sue on site with the team
Other companies offer their teams as "LICENSED INSTALLERS": this generally means they are only licensed by the owner/operator or the like and not an outside entity. In some cases this only involves a quick one day course to be licensed within themselves.
Our small team consists of trade qualified builders, roofers and glaziers which comes under the umbrella of LBP "Government licensed building AND roofing practitioners".
