Solatube Tubular Daylighting Systems Installation

We carry out free onsite surveys, without obligation, where we can look at the possibilities of a sun tunnel installation and quantify the amount of material required.

We can also give you a demonstration on the product, its performance and expectations of light output. This usually takes about half an hour, at a time convenient to you.

We would then give you an indication of cost and either email or post a quotation to you. Should you wish to proceed, then no deposit is required and we can usually carry out an installation within two weeks. We use our own experienced, fully trained installers and do not subcontract. So we know who exactly is on your roof!!

Installation, in most cases, would be completed in just one day, with minimal disruption to you and your home. We always leave the property nice & tidy as found.

Payment in full will be due on the day of installation and a five year guarantee will be issued.

What’s involved with installing your sun pipe

On this job the customer wanted to brighten up the landing at the top of their stairs, which as you can see from this picture is pretty dark.

Sun Pipe Installation Dark Landing Stairs

1)  First, the safety aspect is checked by the installers and ladders secured.  Once the position of the diffuser and dome exit points have been established, a hole is then cut in the ceiling.

2) The tube angles are set up ready for the break out through the roof.

3) Tiles are removed carefully and the process of installing the flashing and weathering the roof from the elements can begin.
