What a difference the skylights have made! Really appreciated Bobs advice and guidance with where the skylights would work most effectively and the sizing options to best suit. Bobs personalised service is awesome, especially when it’s your home. The team are excellent and we are absolutely over the moon with our skylights! They have transformed the rooms! Really, really happy. Highly recommend to others

So incredibly happy with the service. We had consulted other companies about getting our Skylight's seal repaired, only to be fobbed off and then told that it needed to be replaced. We got in touch with Lighten Up, and they were able to come within days to check it out, and then within the hour have someone come and service and repair the seal. A++ for no-nonsense, honest and quick response time.

Not a problem Rebecca, I’m glad you contacted us as it was a very minor and easy repair, being advised and quoted in the high thousands to replace was just wrong and unfortunate there are companies in the industry that give that advice. We have you booked in to our annual maintenance and clean program now, see you Feb 2025 🌞🌞

This is our second time using Lighten Up and we've been very happy with their service both times. They are professional, quick to reply to queries, reasonably priced and do a great job. We would recommend them to anyone.

Bob and his team have done a number of installations at various projects over the years. I've found Bob very good with his communication and promptness to get in touch and arrange quotes. He has also been very good in finding solutions, particularly with the skylight replacement projects. LightenUp's workmanship is of a very good standard, and we've never had issues with the installations. Would recommend Lighten up for all new and replacement skylight installation. They are great to work with

Thank you for your review Marc, it’s been a great working relationship over the last 13+ years and installing Velux products (and there’s been quite a few!!) Our team look forward to continuing further in the future.

Very impressed with Lighten Up and their professional team, they have really transformed our kitchen and lounge. Job was completed on time and within Budget (hard to find these days). We had shopped for different quotes and it was a no brainer to go with this company for many reasons, expert advice, best value for money and overall great communication. Can’t recommend enough!!

My wife and I contacted Bob and the team and LightenUp to help modernise our skylights which had been installed some time ago. Bob was great! He came onsite and had a chat to figure out what we had installed, what our needs were and then provided a few different options for us to consider. Before we knew it we had updated the technology our skylights used and for a very reasonable price. We can now run our skylights off new remotes, and through the phone app which had no ability to do prior. We would highly recommend the LightenUp team

Very happy with the sky tunnels installed by LightenUp. Clear communication, very pleasant team, the tunnels have made such a huge difference to our dark hallway. Would definitely recommended!

Thank you Lauren, What a difference they made! Thank you for choosing LightenUp and always a pleasure for us when connecting the sun tunnels up at the end of installation and seeing the instant daylight beam in. 🌞

I was really impressed with the professionalism and quality of the service we received having our skylight installed. It was tricky positioning in a high pitched roof and the guys managed it perfectly.

Bob and his team were knowledgeable & clear about best options available for living areas, whilst also considering what we wanted to achieve, both functionally & aesthetically. The team worked fast and were professional in their approach. We would absolutely use them again, for when we next look to “lighten up” spaces in our home.

Thanks Tessa, perfect sized solar powered opening for your new ensuite. Can wait to be back!

We hired Lighten Up to replace an existing 3.5 x 3.5 skylight with 2 large skylights and additional roofing. From our first chat with Bob we were confident that he truly understood what we’d like the end product to look and feel like. He and his team did an outstanding job at maximising the amount of light we’re getting while keeping the character of our house. He and his team were also the most on time, tidy and friendly bunch of trades people we’ve ever worked with.

Thank you for your praises Annika. Happy to have helped remove the existing and failing custom made skylights and install 2x Velux Skylights to give you a warmer and dryer living space.

When going to market for the installation of 2 new Skylights at one of our Lower Hutt commercial properties one consideration was price but more importantly than that was quality, service and reliability. We reached out to two Wellington based companies one being Lightenup. Bob came to sight, within a few days, was informative, answered all of our questions on the spot and was friendly. We went with his team and his guys were on site 2 weeks later. They were professional, assisted the office team in moving desks and were done in 1 1/2 days when they moved everything back. When I visited the site a week later to view the workmanship the two office ladies based at the desks below the new skylights said it had literally changed the workspace entirely. From a space with only internal windows (hence we looked for skylights) into a factory to “sun beaming in, a fresh breeze and even the birds singing”. It changed their entire work areas dramatically. Happy employees equal happy directors equal happy tenants. We went with the blind option with automatic rain sensors which we thought would be great if it started raining whilst our tenants were out they would shut automatically minimising the chance of any damage. On the back of the above we them went on to have one installed in our bathroom at our new home, same service, same result being that it changed the entire room. Bob and his team (led by Tom from memory?) were simply outstanding and we have gone on to recommend them to others who now say the same. You simply can’t ask for more than that and I’d happily recommend them to anyone looking for commercial or residential skylights anytime.

Thanks for your great praises Julian, the Solar powered opening with rain & wind sensors to auto close were definitely the best option to cool the office space down and protect the computers and property if it rained - which can happen unpredictably anytime in Wellington!! Thank you for all your referrals, we have noticed as they’ve mentioned your name. Cheers, Bob

My experience with Bob and the team at LightenUp was beyond what I expected. Adding skylights to our home has always been a dream but seemed unrealistic and quite daunting. The process from start to finish with LightenUp was exceptional. The team were considerate, friendly and knowledgeable. We are already considering adding more to our home. Thanks so much again for adding light and warmth back to our home :)
Reply from LightenUp Wellington 2024-01-26
Thank you for your praise Luke and trusting us with making your dream come true and within your $10K budget for multiple skylights - Something we are always proud to do from our first consultation. Rob, Mark and Andy really enjoyed delivering for you on the 2 days they were there. We look forward to carrying on this in the future. Photos look amazing what an amazing difference, and rest assured your art work and furnishings are well protected with the 99.9% UV protection glass. Bob

Lighten Up Wellington installed 2 skylights in our living room. I was unsure at the start on what type of skylights to get, so Bob’s knowledge and expertise was extremely helpful when choosing what to get installed. We went for opening skylights as my main goals were air flow and bring in light. The installation was done in a day and the team were a breeze to work with. Would highly recommend for all your natural lighting needs.

Thanks Derri, and what a big difference it made! Looking forward to a starting the 2nd phase
