From the first meeting with Larry – we had a long chat over the world we live in today – and the two meetings we had with Joseph, I knew that our skylights ( 2) and our sun tunnel would be what we wanted.
The work done was on time – a rarity these days – and was done with care and attention.
We are very pleased with the results- particularly the light tunnel in the den , which provides us with clear light, and is like a Ray Of Hope for the future.
Thanks to the Donnelly Team – you have done what we asked for, and we enjoyed your company.
Cheers Phil & Shelley in Qualicum Beach.
Our house has a great kitchen, but it was dark, almost like a cave and with a recently installed patio cover it was now even darker. We needed to brighten up the kitchen and dining area without adding additional electrical lighting.
We had done our homework; been to the home show, talked with the exhibitors and doing the follow-up research.
Enter Donnelly Skylights, Larry dropped by the house to do an assessment and give us a quote. His amicable personality coupled with decades of experience using an internationally proven product enabled him to clearly explain the products and offer the best solution to meet our needs and budget.
Normally we do 3 quotes on any house renovations, but in this case it was obvious that hiring Larry and his team to do the job was the way to go. The 10 year warranty and fair price sealed the deal and as a result of this we made an exception to our rule and did not bother getting further quotes.
Less than a week after agreeing to move forward his son and assistant dropped by and professionally installed 2 sun tunnels in a morning. Friendly and efficient there were no problems and they cleaned up their work area nicely.
The end result was that the installation of the 2 sun tunnels by Donnelly Skylights exceeded expectations. The kitchen and dining area are now filled with light and we couldn’t be happier.
Thank you Donnelly Skylights
Karl and Simone in Courtenay
Thank you for the wonderful job done by Donnelly Skylights.
The estimate was done promptly and at the time arranged, the installation was handled perfectly, no mess, courteous service, a fabulous company to deal with.
We will pass your name on to friends and relatives with no hesitation, it was a pleasure to deal with you.
Stephen and Rosemarie in Nanaimo
Thank you for such quick service.
Cheers, Colleen in Campbell River
We are thrilled with the sun tunnels—the light is amazing, and we are sure that our friends will want some when they see ours. We were impressed with Joe’s work and clean up, and will happily recommend Donnelly Skylights.
Best wishes, Suzan & Ron in Deep Bay
We are indeed enjoying the additional brightness in our hallway.
Keith & Judy in Courtenay
It was a pleasure doing business with you.
Kevin & Lana in Duncan
We are very happy with our sun tunnels – they have really brightened up the living room and entrance way – they are worth every penny. Also I would like to thank Joseph and you for your excellent service. Even after a marathon day installing the five tunnels yesterday Joseph still insisted on cleaning up thoroughly after himself, which I really appreciated. Overall it has been a pleasure dealing with Donnelly – you did a good job, on time, and fairly priced – which is something other contractors could learn from. I’d be happy to give a referral.
Cheers, Neil in Victoria
Joe was great when he was here. He was friendly, calm, confident, steady and thorough – exactly the kind of professional everyone likes to deal with. We can’t wait for a sunny day! (This March has set records for dark days- as you likely know so well).
Shane & Stephanie in Courtenay
Joseph arrived a couple of days later with all the material and supplies to install the sun tunnels and within a few hours they were completely installed. He even vacuumed the area where there had been some debris from the ceiling cut!! Communication with the staff at the company has been excellent. Greg & Marlyn in Duncan
We just recently had two sun tunnels installed in our new house. When we called Donnelly Skylights the owner, Larry, listened to our concerns, addressed them and advised us how to proceed. His son, Joseph, came down to take a look at the job requirements, gave us a clear idea of how the job would be done and within a few days we had a firm quote in our inbox. We were very impressed with Joseph’s level of experience and his confident manner in tackling the job.
We just love the way the sun tunnels light up the entrance and the kitchen. Even though it’s been overcast and rather dark skies we haven’t had a need to turn lights on during the day in either area since the installation.
We feel confident in the durability of the product and have been provided with a 10 year warranty.
Thank you Donnelly Skylights!!!

Absolutely pleased with the sun tunnels and amazed at how they brighten up my living room!
Mabel in Cobble Hill
We just want to thank you for the great job that you did in installing our two sun tunnels.
The amount of light is surprising, more than we expected, and actually there seems to be more light than what we get from our skylights.
Thanks to Joseph and Larry for the great service.
Michael & Michelle in Nanaimo
Thanks for putting in our new sun tunnel and replacing an existing one, we are very happy with both. Your installer did a great job on everything.
Jan & Keith in Nanaimo
Larry & Joseph, thank you for your quick response in regards to our interest in the Sun Tunnels. I appreciate your willingness to deal in the interest of good business ethics. We will have these sun tunnels installed by your business as soon as possible.

Really liking the skylights, made a huge difference to the room.
Allen & Carol in Ladysmith
Thank you, Larry and Joe. We are amazed at the light coming through the tunnel and have attempted to ‘turn off’ the light a couple of times already. I am sure we are going to enjoy having the tunnel in the bathroom, especially when that lovely window goes!
Jean in Victoria
Thanks so much!
We appreciate how super efficient you are and we are looking forward to installing the next 2 sun tunnels.
Regards, Dafina in Qualicum Beach
We had 2 sun tunnels installed last yr-and now another one today, in living room – we are really happy with all the light they bring in, Joseph did an excellent job, and never leaves any mess! We would recommend the Donnelly’s — Thanks Larry & Joseph
Carol in Nanaimo
Thank you Larry and Joseph for a job well done.
We are delighted with the Sun Tunnel installed in the bathroom, how
lovely to see daylight coming in. The new skylights are a wonderful
source of light while blocking the sun and heat.
The installation was completed quickly and efficiently and it has been a pleasure to do business with your company.
Bill & Hazel – Qualicum Beach
We love the sun tunnels, and your son was great to work with.
Angela in Nanaimo

Enjoyed your son’s business practices today; Business like with the Personal edge. Great job from start to finish !! World of difference in our home . Thanks again
Ken & Deanna in Courtenay
A couple of years ago Donnelly Skylights installed two 14″ sun tunnels in our very dark living room, which made quite a difference.
When we recently decided to look into having sun tunnels installed in our bathrooms (otherwise known as The Black Holes because
of no natural light), we started by contacting another well-known local company advertising 20% off. That company missed the first
estimate appointment entirely, came out a week later, took photos, gave us a rough verbal estimate after the sale which had suddenly
shrunk to 15%, and were told the ‘official’ estimate would come from Victoria, but we have yet to hear from them. That was over 2 weeks ago.
Meanwhile, we went back to Donnelly. Joe came out the same day because he was installing just around the corner, he gave us a written estimate on the spot, which was lower than the one provided by the other company.
To make a long story short, the sun tunnels were installed today and we’re delighted. Showed up on time with fast, efficient,friendly,
professional service, left the job site tidy and got along great with our boisterous pack of dogs. Joe provided a computerized receipt for payment before he left, and within an hour we received the warranty information and a nice ‘thank you’ by e-mail.
Our only ‘problem’ (ha ha) is that the light provided by these tunnels is so excellent that every time my husband and I walk past a bathroom, we reach for the switch to turn off the light! It’s totally transformed both rooms.
Thank you, Donnelly Skylights. Not only will we recommend you to anyone who asks, I’ll e-mail our neighbourhood list tonight and tell them about you.
Pat & Stew in Nanaimo
In the middle of June we had a skylight replaced with a new 4′ x 4′ Velux non opening skylight. They said the new one would block out most of the sun and heat. It has been amazing as it does just what they said it would. THANKS DONNELLY SKYLIGHTS, great job. Will think about a second one now.
Patrick & Carol in Courtenay
Thank you for your prompt and efficient installation of two Sun Tunnels for our kitchen. Much appreciated.

Jacquie in Nanaimo
Just wanted to say thank you for the great installation of my two Sun Tunnels. The resulting light far exceeded my expectations and I have to remind myself that I don’t have to switch the light off! I have neighbours lining up to come and see them and won’t hesitate to recommend your company to them. Thanks for your patience and quick, clean installation.
Jacquie in Nanaimo
We are VERY happy with the two sun tunnels that were installed yesterday. The installation was done very professionally and quickly. The two sun tunnels are so much better than the existing solo tubes that were installed by another company. We would recommend your company to anybody who wants a quality installation.
Jo-Ann and Doug in Nanaimo
This is just a quick note to say how happy we are with our new sun tunnel, and the work done by Larry and Joe, they came in gave us a quote and it was right on the nose, even after Joe had to do a little extra to get it to work. We will be getting Donnelly Skylights back for the next one we want installed.

The service was great and the work was excellent. They cleaned up which was amazing and the fact that they work year round is super. Would not hesitate to call Donnelly Skylights again.

My experience could not have been better – Donnelly Skylights completely exceeded my expectations — I had forgotten what great service could be like!
With great appreciation,
Cheryl in Duncan
Thanks for your great service.
Roy & Gwen in Courtenay
Thanks for this. I’m really enjoying them already. And I shall recommend you as people ask. The installation was done very neatly as was the condition the two sites were left in.
Shirley in Nanaimo
Good morning Larry,
We have enjoyed working with you!
Your service is outstanding and we will have no hesitation recommending you and your product to our friends.
Gordon and Marg in Comox
We are delighted with our new Sun Tunnel and it has changed our kitchen completely – it is much brighter than before and that is just on a normal day. We do not need to put the lights on to see any more! We do not get the sun shining on the roof of the house in the winter so we are looking forward to seeing the effect in the summer! The installation was very professional and we are very happy to recommend this to anyone who has the same problem that we had. We are extremely impressed with the sun tunnel, it makes such a difference to our whole kitchen. Great product!
Nigel and Anne in Nanoose Bay, B.C.
Nothing but great comments!
Sheldon and Cheryl in Chemainus, B.C.
Bravo! Horray! Well Done! Thanks again for great service and the great work
Don and Joanne in Campbell River, B.C.
I want to thank you for your very quick response to my inquiry re a Velux skylight. I can’t believe the job is already done, and done well. I was very impressed with your employee Joe. He was very professional in every way, and unfazed by the steep pitch or the many wasps! (a brave man).
I will definitely recommend your company to any one I know who needs a skylight.
Alex and Betty in Lake Cowichan, B.C.
Donnelly Skylights can use me at any time as a reference. Harold in Ladysmith, B.C.
Honest, reliable and efficient. Howard in Campbell River, B.C.
I found Donnelly Skylights at the Home Show and asked them to come for a quote on a sun Tunnel. The quote was very agreeable to me but I was not quite ready to have it installed at that time. When I was ready they were very prompt to respond to my request to have it installed. The installer was really good at his job and had it installed within 2 hours including all the cleanup. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Walt & Diane in Campbell River, B.C.
We were really happy with the service. I’m pretty sure that Joe swept the floor up after being in the attic and I was so appreciative of this. The customer service was great. Thank you!
Niels & Wendy in Black Creek, B.C.
I readily provide a recommendation for prospective customers to consider Donnelly Skylights when purchasing and installing sky tunnels. Joseph arrived at the time scheduled and completed the job in two hours, and did a thorough clean up after. I find that the sky tunnel provides even more natural light into the bathroom and the adjoining hallway than expected. Very pleased with the results.
Robert and Lorraine in Victoria, B.C.
I had a sun tunnel fitted today and just want to say how efficient and pleasant the whole project was. Apart from the actual difference that the tunnel has made to the brightness in my room, I also appreciate how easy everything was, from ordering to installation. I would recommend Donnelly Skylights to anyone. Thanks so much. Pat in Sidney, B.C.
It has been two weeks since Joe came by and installed the new skylights. Just wanted to send this note to let you know how happy we are with the new skylights and the difference they have made as far as the climate in the house. No more moisture on the inside and they also seem to provide noise reduction from the rain. With the old skylights, you could definitely here the pitter patter of the raindrops. Joe was friendly, professional, informative, and did the job quickly without any interference in our daily routine. It was a pleasure and will contact you again, when we will be replacing the skylight in our outbuildings. Thank you once again. Pina on Gabriola Island.
I would definitely recommend your services to others. I found Larry to be prompt in his quotes as well as understanding what we wanted. The installation was done quickly, with all debris cleaned up afterward. Your company has shown that it cares about its customers and giving good service. Gayle in Victoria
Thanks Larry, your son did a great job and is very pleasant. Karen

Thankyou SSSOOOO much for your prompt service of installing the skylight. It has made a tremendous difference to my kitchen. I was pleased with the installation and especially with the installer. A neat job done very quickly. Thankyou!!!! Alison
“We recently had a skylight installed by Donnelly Skylights and can honestly say we are very pleased with the product, the workmanship, and the excellent service we received. The installer arrived on time, worked very professionally and completed the project in record time. No mess, no fuss, just a great job.
The skylight provides way more light to the interior of our home than we expected and we are extremely pleased with the way it has enhanced our living area.
We would wholeheartedly recommend Donnelly Skylights for anyone wishing to have a skylight installed. It has enhanced our home tremendously and has given us given us the opportunity to have reduced electrical lighting in the area which I suspect will have a positive impact on our electricity bill through reduced usage.
We love the skylight so much we are contemplating having one installed in a hallway.
Thanks Larry for a great job and for giving us a great asset to our home.” – Bill and Wendy Rose

Further to your enquiry about the installation of a sun tube on one of our completed roofs at Parkwood Village…
We have no issue with Donnelly Skylights installing the necessary flashings and such will have no negative effect on our warranty.
FYI. We work with Donnelly Skylights on a regular basis. If anyone else were doing the work we would want to be brought in to install the through-roof flashings. However in this case we are confident in their work knowing they would contact us if they needed any assistance.
