We were very hesitant about going forward with the skylight project because the master bedroom has a beautiful cathedral ceiling, and the skylight was the architectural center of the room. Over the course of a year we had an extensive email conversation with Elaine and Bob, and they made two pre-installation trips from Wapwallopen PA to visit our site near Washington DC and research the options fo...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The provider performed two jobs for our house. The first was on November 14 and the second on December 12.  The November 14 job was to install electronic shades that by remote control could open and close a shade across an extra large skylight 13 feet above the floor of the master bedroom; the skylight had been designed by a well known architect. The skylight was a nonstandard size over six feet in length.  After living with the skylight for more than 30 years, we realized it was keeping us from a good night's sleep and intolerably warming up the room in summer. The second job was to replace standard hardware store window shades with more attractive window shades in two other bedrooms.
