Do I get to choose my own finishing materials?

One of the benefits of Skylight is our full-service package to save time and money. We will recommend finishing materials based on your style preferences from our curated material catalog, but ultimately the final choice is yours. We take care of material ordering, deliveries and all logistics.

Do I need to have design ideas before I start the process?

Share with Skylight your look and feel you want to achieve and we will give you a variety of recommendations. If you’re not sure, look at magazines, websites, or on Pinterest to get some design ideas and Skylight will guide your ideal renovation style and look.

How and when will I make payments?

Once construction starts, we invoice based on the work completion of pre-determined milestones on your project. You’ll have a detailed payment schedule before construction starts and you’ll only pay for work that has been completed.  You’ll pay via bank transfer through Skylight’s online system.
