Rated 5 out of 5Â by GeeBee Definitely brightened the room!
We had the tubular skylight installed in our den; it only has one window and we needed lights on in there even on a sunny day--no more! The amount of light coming in now is perfect for reading during the day without any lights on in the room. We were not comfortable cutting a hole in the roof/ceiling and had it installed; the guys said it was really easy to install. The dome on the roof is not obtrusive. We love it! We also had the light fixture installed and that is what we use after dark -- great prices for both and we will recover the costs in electric bills.

In a cramped attic space, this can be an interesting project. However, by following some simple concepts for proper alignment almost anyone with some handyman experience can install a couple of these in a day. Professional installers might be a better option if you are on a tight schedule. The box it comes in does not do a whole lot to protect the contents, so you may spend some time having to straighten out the metal tubing from bends and dents. Rotating the sections to achieve the needed alignment for the light path from the roof dome straight down to the ceiling lens opening will be much easier if you completely remove the protective film from the grooves where they join. When we peeled back the film, it didn't come out of the grooves so we had to separate the pieces completely and rejoin them after all of the film was cleared away. We also used a long paint roller extension pole for a quick reference to see how much to rotate the tube sections to get the alignment we needed - much quicker than eyeballing it and following repeated attempts with guidance from the person on the roof. The amount of light that these added to our inside corridor is amazing. It completely transformed the look of our house and I no longer trip over the cats as I walk down the hall in the morning. I can see them in the clearly lit hallway now. Another benefit that was unexpected is how it extends the daylight period in the house -- when it is getting dark outside and very little light comes in through the windows from the sun going down over the horizon we still have about an extra half hour of light coming inside through the light tubes from the diffused light high in the sky. I haven't seen that feature mentioned in any of the product literature.
