Top 10 Reasons to Choose Donnelly Skylights on Vancouver Island

It was difficult for us to reduce our list to only 10 top reasons why you should choose us to let the light in to your life, but we did our best!

1. We have the experience! Donnelly Skylights is a branch of Donnelly Home Repairs which has been in business for more than 40 years. In 1995 we introduced the tubular skylight to British Columbia. It is quite the story to hear but the short version is that we are proud pioneers in this business!

2. We are family owned and operated – Larry Donnelly is Mr. Skylight and Joseph Donnelly is Skylight Man! Together these two have been the driving force for happy customers all throughout Vancouver Island from Victoria to Port Hardy and Nanaimo to Tofino. Of course, we also have a number of other wonderful folks working together within the Donnelly Skylights team to ensure we shine each day!

3. We are BBB Vancouver Island Accredited with an A+ rating. The BBB works hard to create and maintain an ethical marketplace which helps people find businesses they can trust. Donnelly Skylights is proud to show our integrity and excellence in customer service in all that we do.

4. Islanders serving Islanders! Some companies start out small and then get gobbled up by some massive national or international organization, losing touch with the community and the people that make this our home. We are the Donnelly Family here on Vancouver Island, working hard to serve our neighbors with a personal touch that makes family-owned companies so special.

5. We answer the phone! It’s true. You can call us at 250-924-8828 and we answer the phone. It seems strange that this would even be in the Top 10 but how many companies have you called where it immediately goes to voicemail? If you get a message at Donnelly Skylights, it means our day has ended and we are out enjoying Vancouver Island or we are resting to get ready for another day of work tomorrow. But rest assured, we will get back to you asap. Call us and see for yourself.

6. Send us an email and we answer them too! I know, I know, it is almost as if we would really love to earn your business. We really would! We aren’t too busy to contact you or answer your questions, we want you to see that we are working hard to gain your trust and hopefully earn your business. Refreshing hey?

7. We are Velux VIP Elite Skylight Specialists! This is a pretty big deal because Velux designs and manufactures Skylight and Sun Tunnel products for any solution and Donnelly Skylights is the trusted team to recommend the right solution and get them installed properly. Did you know Velux is the world leader in skylights and roof windows! A company we can all trust!

8. We don’t operate an expensive showroom on the top floor of a fancy building. Our office is attached to the Donnelly family home and our warehouse is on the same property. We are a service business. We come to you at your home or business and serve you there, with Skylights, Sun Tunnels, installations, repairs and more. This means that we can provide the best product at a great price, installed right and supported by a team of people with pride for what we do!

9. We have the pictures to prove it! On our projects page you will see some of our installations and we’ll be adding a lot more in the coming months. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and while we are proud of the work we do, nothing beats the feeling of having the warmth of the sun lighting up your interior space like no lightbulb can do. Skylights and Sun Tunnels put excellent use to our most abundant natural resource – light from above!

10. We would love to meet you! Sure the internet allows everyone a chance to tell a story but we also take the time to connect with our customers at home shows throughout Vancouver Island every year. We work during the week and then often work the weekends too, during the Spring and Fall at Evergreen Exhibition Home Shows. Drop in and see us at the next one but don’t wait to contact us about getting the light in your home or business – you will enjoy the difference natural light makes to the places you spend your day!

11. We work harder! Like we said, It was difficult for us to reduce our list to only 10 top reasons why you should choose us to let the light in to your life, but we did our best! So our Top 10 is actually a Top 11 because we are a proud team, a proud family and we would really love the opportunity to earn your business. Please, reach out and connect with us today and allow us to be your choice on Vancouver Island for Skylights, Sun Tunnels and custom canopies.
