How can we brighten your day?

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

During the COVID-19 Pandemic we intend to operate our business in a manner to best protect our customers, their families, and our employees.

During this pandemic we will respond to customer emergencies or other pressing issues as soon as possible. We will schedule regular installations as prudently as our schedule, manpower and weather allow. All our employees are required to self-quarantine in the event of any COVID-19 contact. Our office will remain open with limited hours to monitor phone messages and mail. Drop ship or DC pick up for commercial and custom orders will continue to be placed with VELUX USA. HDS pickups and deliveries will be made with face masks required to mitigate unnecessary transmission of this terrible disease. Manufacturing and delivery delays should be expected during the next few months as VELUX and their suppliers are experiencing COVID-related delays.

Thank you for your understanding.

  • Employees will endeavor to maintain a 6-foot distance between themselves and our customers whenever possible.
  • Employees will utilize clean personal protective equipment (booties, surgical mask, gloves) as necessary when entering a jobsite or home.
  • Employees will sanitize hands before entering and after leaving a customer’s home or jobsite.
  • Employees will wipe down surfaces, before leaving, that they may have come in contact with during our time on the jobsite.
  • Employees will avoid touching any surfaces (counters, doors, etc.) that are not part of their work area.
  • Employees should wash their hands as often as possible during the workday and take whatever precautions necessary to limit the spread of the Corona Virus.
  • Customers will not be required to accept offered installation dates, after mandatory quarantine orders are lifted, if they feel they are at risk of exposing the home/family to COVID-19.
  • Customers will not be asked to physically touch or sign any documents. Remote controls will be sanitized before being handed to a customer.
  • Customers may make reasonable requests to have certain work areas tarped or sealed off to avoid the potential spread of the virus.
  • If our employees feel unsafe for any reason they are authorized to pull-off the job until such threat is mitigated.
  • No employee should report to work if they have any symptom of the COVID-19 illness or if they have reason to believe that they have been exposed to someone that may have the disease. If symptoms occur during the workday, all employees on the job should immediately close-up and leave the job to begin quarantine.

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.
