How can we brighten your day?

Thank you for your interest in Houseworks Daylighting Solutions, LLC.


Many of our customers have chosen to take advantage of the 26% solar tax credit by ordering solar-powered shades with their skylights. VELUX has informed us that they cannot produce enough solar shades to satisfy demand because of a worldwide chip shortage. No one knows how long this situation will last.

At this time Houseworks will take orders for skylights (either fixed or venting), with or without shades (manual or solar-powered shades). We will install the skylights as soon as they arrive from VELUX, but we may not be able to have the solar shades installed for some time.

For as long as supplies last VELUX will install WHITE, solar room darkening shades in venting skylights only. Manual skylights will be able to get manual shades but not solar-powered shades until the chip shortage mitigates.

We understand this puts our customers’ tax credit in jeopardy. Please speak with your estimator or contact Houseworks at for more information.

Thank you for your understanding.

“The 18 year old skylight in my master bathroom had become cloudy and streaked. I sought an installer and learned about Houseworks Daylighting Solutions from Angies list. Their salesman/estimator helped

Harvey K. of Lake Forest, IL

I just wanted to drop a Thank You to your team for the excellent service you provide your customers. We ordered and received two solar skylights and the whole process

Houseworks has been working with Weather By Request to help us accurately schedule skylight installations. By employing an experienced, professional meteorologist we can make better decisions regarding weather. Obviously protecting our customer’s property is important, but so is expediting installations on days others don't work because they rely on generic forecasts. Our weatherman tailors his forecasts to areas we are working to increase our efficiency and make our scheduling more reliable.
