Thank you for the solatube installation! Love my natural daylighting!

Last week we had two Solatubes installed by Todd at Green Home Ohio. Todd did an excellent job installing the Solatubes and we are extremely happy with the result. We are delighted with the extra light in our kitchen and hallway! It is a bright daylight that varies with cloud cover and time of day--exactly what you would expect from natural light. We also had the nightlights installed, which Todd told us would look like a soft moonlight at night. He was exactly right--the nightlights provide a soft moonlight effect that is just enough to see the cabinets and counter so we don't run into them at night. We highly recommend Todd and Green Home Ohio for Solatube installation.

Solatube installation in my bathroom!

We had Todd put a solar tube lighting in each bathroom. It is so nice to no longer have dark bathrooms that always needed lights on. We believe this will save on our electric bill quite a bit. We were able to take our plug in night lights out also. There is plenty of light from the night light that was installed in this system. Best part, all solar. This company is great. He arrived on time and cleaned up after he was done. You would not have known that he had to cut a hole in the ceiling, no dust left at all. ( I am a clean nut) We saw him installing one in our neighbors hall and immediately had him schedule us for the bathrooms. Our daughter is going to have him do her bathrooms also. Another neighbor came to look at mine today and said she wants to do the same for her mother across the street. I checked BBB and they have an A+ rating there. Totally felt comfortable with him and the whole process. We highly recommend Todd.

I love my new solatubes in my previously dark family room. Always had to have a light on for my dogs. Todd was great. Very professional. My room is light today even though it is cloudy!

Not all solartubes are created equal

In our old home we had updated our dark kitchen and had asked the builder to install a solartube.. While he did, the model installed was from a local supplier, not a solatube. The end result was a tube that had a poor difuser and was poorly sealed allowing bugs to enter.

After doing some further research, we selected a local solatube company to replace that unit and add another in our master bath. The difference was outstanding. Consequently, when we moved to our new house we knew we wanted the solatube product. We were happy to find Todd at the home show and immediately set about lining him up to install a tube in both baths. We were additionally impressed in that the tubes have been updated to include a night light.

The amount of light did not disappoint. In addition, Todd was easy to work with, answering our questions and providing the information which our HOA kept requesting. We couldn"t be more satisfied and are looking forward to many years of enjoying our solatubes.

2 Solatubes installed. Satisfied with work.

Just this week we had 2 solar tubes installed in our living room. We knew what to expect since we'd had them installed in a former home in the far western part of the state. This time our experience, as it was in the past, brought, daylight is steaming into our home. Words cannot explain the impact - you've got to see it. Additionally, we cannot speak highly enough of Todd and his Green Home Ohio. They are professional and personable.

Thanks for the Solatube installation! We love the product!

My husband and I enlisted the help of Todd Tamburino because we were noticing large insects in our original Solatube, installed by our kitchen remodeler's sub 8 years ago. We were hoping that the problem was a matter of retaping/tightening screws. However, upon his inspection of the Solatube via our attic, we learned that not only had it been installed incorrectly (leaving large gaps and untaped areas), but the original installer had caused damage to our attic by cutting into joists, etc. Our chosen solution was for Todd to completely reconstruct the Solatube, using as much of our original parts as possible to save money. Mr. Tamburino arrived promptly (called to indicate he'd be a few minutes late), was professional, and very knowledgeable about all Solatube products. He showed us our options and costs, wasn't pushy, and came prepared to fix our issue on the spot. Todd creatively customized our 'new' Solatube, fixed the 'cut beam problem', protected our furnishings, and cleaned up after completion of the project. Not only are we completely satisfied with and highly recommend his work, but enjoyed having him in our home! We felt his extended price was fair, and are considering other Solatube products in the future. We LOVE our Solatube - it brightens our kitchen immensely!

Thanks for the solatube daylight systems installation!

The Solatubes changed the way I feel about my house. We had one installed in an upstairs enclosed hallway and another in a windowless bathroom. We haven't had to turn the light on in either area at all because of the tremendous light during the day, even when cloudy, and at night with the solar powered nightlights that emit the perfect amount of nighttime light to get around. I'm already seeing results with our electric bill and our kids have two less lights to leave on because they don't need to turn them on at all. Considering a whole house fan next. Green Home Ohio provided quality service with a great product. Highly recommend.

Great work on my solatubes!

Todd did a fabulous job installing our solar tube and attic fan. We're so happy with both products. And I have NEVER had a service person do such an amazing job of cleanup. It's like he was never there!

Solatube Daylighting

I am so thrilled with my new solatube. I had a very dark kitchen with one small window. Even in the daytime we had to have a light on in the kitchen to do almost any chore and reading without a light was not possible. Now we very seldom turn the light on during the day and I can even read my newspaper. sitting at my kitchen table. Our solatube also came with a solar night light so that we have a small light in the kitchen even at night. This solar light also qualifies us to receive a tax credit on our 2018 taxes.

Todd came and we discussed where to put the light and he told me that he could probably combine our existing ceiling light with the solatube. He measured everything in the kitchen and then went onto the roof. He even took a picture of the roof with his phone so that he could show me why my roof shape would not allow us to put it exactly where we discussed and then showed me how we could adjust it to make it work.
We are so thrilled with the product that we immediately decided that we want another one in our Family room.

Thank you for the solatube installation! A+

We're remodeling our master bathroom and had Todd put in a Solatube with a nightlight. What a difference it makes. The bathroom is bright during the day then provides a great nightlight for us. The dome cover on the tube blends perfectly with my rain shower head. He also installed an exhaust fan which is very quiet. Todd was very professional and made sure the areas were cleaned when he was finished. He followed up a couple of days later to make sure we were pleased with everything. We highly recommend having a Solatube installed by Green Home Ohio.

I recommend solatube installation by Green Home Ohio

The two solatubes are brighter than what I had expected and the solar powered night glow is actually on for the whole night. The installer was friendly and prompt. We should have had the solatubes installed long time ago.

by Rebecca J of Hilliard, OH via Google Reviews on Solatube Daylighting
The nightlight is going to be very helpful!

Todd installed a Solatube with nightlight in my master bathroom. Unbelievable difference with the natural light, very dark space before. The nightlight is going to be very helpful. Todd was extremely professional and took time to go over the instructions with me.
