    Hugh Gallagher installed 2 Skylights in our house. We purchased Solar sun screen with it. He was very cooperative and friendly until the sale went through. Within a year the sun screen started making a lot of noise while opening and closing. We knew that it would break and stop working after that. I called him and he came to examine it and said he would return to fix it. He NEVER did and would NOT return my numerous calls and emails. So we have no choice but to live with it. He cheated us and I would strongly recommend against doing business with him and his company.

    Hugh Gallagher did an excellent job installing our 3 skylights. The work was very professional and completed in a timely manner. They really lighten up the room and they are leak proof!

    My wife and I are very happy Hugh Gallagher of "Solar Illuminations" did an outstanding job with the removal of our 26 years old leaking skylights and installed two new VELUX Solar Powered with internal shades "Fresh Air" Skylight systems in one day. Hugh and his installation team's workmanship is Excellent, they didn't stop until the job was done. The installation process was well planned and executed excellently. Their price quote fit our budget and was pleased a large amount of work was done for the amount we paid. Hugh cleaned up after the installation was completed and removed the old leaking skylights, he fully tested both new skylights and show me how to operate and program the remote control and smart mobile controller. Hugh even called us back a couple of weeks later to make sure there was no leeks and the operation of the windows were working with no issues(this is a person who really care about his work and wants to make sure his customers are very happy). We highly recommend "Solar Illuminations", thank you Hugh Gallagher !!! Work Completed Date: June 6th 2019 Services Performed: Yes Hire Again: Yes

    Hugh Gallagher and the Solar Illuminations team install four skylights on our home in June 2018 after evaluating the condition of all 13 units on our roof. Hugh was great to work with throughout the process. He was responsive to all our questions, made a detailed analysis of the condition of all the units and provided us options for repair / replacement. Solar Illuminations is a pleasure to work with and provides a frank assessment of cost based upon your budget. Hugh was on the roof despite the rain to make certain everything would fit according to Velux specifications. Hugh kept me informed of everything during the process and installed the units on a timely basis as promised. Hugh even went beyond normal expectations as we had a unit that required a unique shape not available from Velux. He worked with us to order the correct unit which had to be manufactured to fit the skylight opening. Hugh had the unit shipped to his location, transported to our home and install it without us even being in town during the process. He is truly a dedicated and thoughtful businessman who I highly recommend to anyone seeking to purchase or replace their skylights. My units were 29 years old and Hugh replaced them like magic. His prices are fair and his quality is tremendous - don't use a roofer for your skylights as Hugh is knowledgeable on all aspects of installation and specifications. I have no hesitation to recommend Solar Illuminations and Hugh services and would use his services again. Great Guy.

    Solar Illuminations replaced three old skylights in our kitchen and hallway. Velux's five-star rating for this company is well-deserved. The work was completed in no time at all by Hugh and his professional team. And, as others have said, Hugh is a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend Solar Illuminations.

    I learned of Hugh Gallagher from Velux's website as he is listed as a 5-star installer. He replaced my 30 year old leaky skylight professionally and promptly. He and his crew came on time and did job with ease. Hugh was a pleasure doing business with.

    Hugh Gallagher replaced a Skylight for me and the roof area around the skylight started leaking recently. I called Hugh and he claimed he came and checked it out and resealed it. It continued leaking and I placed multiple calls and emails to Hugh and he never returned my calls or emails. I had a roofer come over to check it and he found the plywood under the shingles totally rotted out right above the Skylight. The entire roof area that Hugh had replaced during the installation had to be redone. I would definitely not recommend this company for your work.
