  1. We had our Solarspot tubes installed yesterday and are already delighted with the results (despite it being very overcast). Andy and Heidi were very professional and polite. They completed the job incredibly quickly and to a high standard, ensuring that everything was tidy afterwards. I would definitely recommend Norflo if you are thinking of getting a daylight system installed. Thanks Andy and Heidi.

  2. I am really pleased with the work carried out by Norflo, very professional and helpful, completing in super quick time and going above and beyond in offering to assist me at a later date when my ceiling is re-plastered.
    The results are amazing turning my dark and dingy dining area into a much lighter space.

  3. Great installation from Andy and Heidi. Turned up on time and got to work straight away. Very neat job both inside and out, even the roof tiles have been very neatly cut to accommodate the external dome. The spot is on what was a very large dark landing area and whilst I thought there would be an improvement I really had underestimated how much! Even on the dullest of days we have had this week the area is bright and welcoming and the light quality is so much better than that given off by a light bulb. Thank you both for an efficient and quality installation.

  4. A big thank you to Andy who very professionally installed our new light / sun tube which looks abseloutely fantastic! Not only did he do the installation, but also repaired the lighting in a bathroom that was desperately starved of light. Highly recommended and once again thank you for a speedy and efficient work.

  5. Thank you Andrew and Heidi for an excellent job. Prompt, efficient service from start to finish. Delighted with the product and the outcome.

  6. We can’t recommend Andy (and Heidi) highly enough. They initially fitted two sun tunnels in our kitchen two weeks ago. We were so impressed with the light transformation that we immediately asked Andy to fit two in our dark hallway. Needless to say we weren’t disappointed. On top of that Andy and Heidi are two of the friendliest, most professional and tidiest people we’ve had the pleasure of dealing with.

  7. I could not be happier with my newly installed solar spot in my bathroom. Not only does it now give me light in the bathroom, but has brightened up the whole landing area. Andy left the bathroom clean and tidy, as I had to work on the installation day. Would definitely recommend having one of these if you don’t have a window.

  8. Andy (and Heidi) arrived on time (5 minutes early in fact!) and started work immediately. They worked quickly and effectively and 5 hours later, I had a landing (and hallway) which was flooded with bright, natural sunlight. What a difference it makes. I cannot recommend them or their product to you highly enough.

    1. Thanks Dev – even we were impressed with the amount of light this let in ! Hope your wife is pleased with the outcome

  9. Punctual, friendly and professional. Looks like a very good product, transforming our corridor from a light starved, tormenting abyss, to a paradise were darkness is commanded to leave (except at night)

  10. So pleased with our new Solaspot; it has made such a difference to have light flooding onto our dark landing. I would definitely recommend.

  11. Not knowing anything about sun tunnels and having a bathroom with no window I contacted norflo for advice. Andrew visited property and in great detail explained what was required. Andrew and Heidi turned up on time and did an excellent job very professional . The end result is we now have light brilliant. I have no problem recommending these people excellent first class..

  12. Punctual, courteous, professional. Again a job well done.
    This sunpipe turned a black hole into a light and airy en-suite .
    Thank you.

  13. Thank you so much Andy and Heidi. The change on my landing is awesome. The difference is like night and day!!
    You were prompt and very quick and tidy, always checking if I was happy with the work. I’ve already shared the before and after pics with everyone and passed your details on. Fabulous job.

  14. Brilliant service all the way through the process. Everything was carried out as stated, Andrew carried out the work to a very high standard.
    I can’t believe the difference the sun pipe has made to my hall stairs and landing, it’s gone from being very dark and dreary to lovely, bright and cheerful.
    I can not recommend Andrew enough for the excellent work he has done.
    Defiantly a five star service.

  15. Brilliant service, the Solarspot’s have made an huge difference to the living room. The room is so bright and light I can’t believe what a difference it has made. We are so impressed with them and the professional service that we are having another one installed. Andrew and his team were very professional and polite and cleaned up after themselves and left no mess. I would highly recommend Andy and his team ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  16. Once again Andrew and his daughter were a pleasure to have working for you! They arrived on time and did a great job which has now made my hall a pleasure to be in – why did I wait so long to have this second one after such a magical difference the one I had fitted in the kitchen! They were so quick, clean and tidy you would not have known I had had any work done. I now keep thinking of other places that could do with more light! I would definitely recommend Andrew if you need somewhere dark transformed!

  17. I was delighted with the service I received, from the initial contact to the fitting, it was very professional.
    On the day of fitting they arrived when they said they would, they were polite and kept me informed through out the fitting. They cleaned up after themselves and there was no mess.
    The difference it has made in a very dark living room is amazing, I have tried to turn the light off a couple of times thinking I have left them on. My husband was amazed by the amount of light flooding our lounge.
    Thank you

  18. Great can not believe the difference like switching a light on. Tidy quick and efficient worker, would recommend.

  19. Excellent product, professional and tidy installation. Can’t believe the light they let in, even on a north facing roof. Thanks Andy.

  20. It’s a wonderful job; the difference it has made has been amazing.
    I live in a mid-terraced house and very little light could get into my stairwell. Now I keep thinking I’ve left the landing light on!
    Andy who fitted it was excellent. He was thoughtful enough to Email me, with details of his arrival time; rather than phone, as I am deaf. He arrived exactly on time and fitted the sun tunnel quickly and cleanly, even managing to work around a pair of delicate mirrors that I couldn’t remove.
    Sally from Chester

  21. Just had a SolarSpot installed for a stairwell and landing that had been a bit cut off from natural light due to an extension. Everything from quotation to final install went smoothly, and without fuss. Andy bent over backard to fit us in, and we really appreciated it! After some of the below-par trades we have had working on our extension, it was such a breath of fresh air to have a job done well, first time!! Thankyou!

    1. Thanks Neil, it made a real difference to your landing. I’m glad you are pleased with our product and service.

  22. This is the second time Andy has been to our home. The first time was to install a solarspot which we were really pleased with. The second time (2 years later) was to re-site it due to renovation. Andy was able keep the external work in situ and instead reroute the tunnel to an en-suite that was windowless. Both jobs were extremely well carried out, communication is always great. Andy is a professional who is trustworthy and honest. The final bill was actually slightly less than quoted as he didn’t need to use quite as much tubing as he thought! A rare find these days. Thank you Andy

  23. We are very pleased with the excellent fitting of our Solarpipe.
    Andrew visited our property and gave us an immediate quote.
    This was followed up with the fitting exactly as scheduled. There was no interior or exterior mess as Andrew and his team left everything in very clean condition.
    I highly recommend Andrew for his professional and friendly workmanship

    1. Thanks Ross
      It has made a big difference to your bathroom that didn’t have any natural light.

  24. Very pleased with the sun tunnel installation. Andrew turned up on time and just got on with it. He is very personable and efficient and did a great job.

  25. Andrew provided a great service, he was punctual and did the job efficiently explaining as he went along.

  26. Arrived on time at 8.30 in Warrington. So a fairly long journey before starting.
    All went well and we now have light.
    Many thanks

  27. Andrew installed a solarspot to my dark landing. I was most surprised at the amount of light it has given me. Andrew was on time,polite and the little mess he made cleaned up, he did a grand job and i would recommend him to anyone.

  28. Andrew Booton did an amazing job on the installation of our Solarspot tunnel. He was punctual and organised the time of his visit far enough in advance that we were able to arrange our day appropriately.

    The quality of his work was fantastic. The light tunnel collects plenty of light and has already survived a couple of heavy Manchester rainfalls without problems.

    We would recommend him and your services to others

  29. The weather was looking good for the day of installation and Andy took advantage of that and turned up early. I had a solarspot D38 system fitted in the upstairs hallway and Andy provided good advice and delivered a professional installation job, and was a pleasure to work with; I would recommend Andy to anyone considering using his services.

    The D38 Solarspot was fitted with a 3m length pipe and the amount of light now coming in is, surprisingly for 1 unit, more than enough to light up the landing. I noticed though that the spectrum of light is not as soft as what I was expecting, perhaps thats due to it being direct light without the softening effect of bounce from the surrounding environment. Apart from that its great!

  30. Andrew installed a Solarspot sunpipe to a small dark landing in our 200 year old cottage. What an amazing difference, the light output is fantastic and we would never have believed the difference that the sunpipe would make. We are now looking at installing two more in another landing area and a bathroom.

    A brilliant service from Andrew throughout and I would have absolutely no hesitation in thoroughly recommending.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation, great to hear you love it. Hope the building work goes well and look forward to seeing you when it’s finished!

  31. Excellent service. Very clean mess. Very pleasant installer. Could not be more pleased. Highly recommended.


  33. We had our solarspot D38 system fitted yesterday in our bungalow kitchen area which has lost light due to the extension, Andrew turned up on time done an excellent job removed all mess and placed by bin, and now its made a world of difference you keep thinking someone left a light on, I would recommend to anyone who has similar problems and Andrew who installed did a grand job.

  34. I had one Solarspot fitted to our landing which has no natural light and the difference is amazing. It is now brighter than all the surrounding bedrooms. Andrew did a great job with the installation, no mess at all and is a thoroughly nice chap. Highly recommended!

  35. I have just had two solarspot D38 systems installed by Andrew in my Bungalow.
    He arrived spot on time and made sure everything was protected with dust covers before starting work. Andrew worked in a very methodical and meticulous way and
    before long the solarspots were fitted to perfection.
    One solarspot was fitted in my lounge at the far end this tended to be a little dark
    having had an orangery extension, before one side was bright and vibrant the other
    dark and dingy needing lights at 4pm now the whole room is bright no lights needed until night time.
    The second solarspot was fitted in the bathroom I had always suffered with shadows
    when sitting in front of the mirror while shaving.
    The whole room is bright with natural day light which spreads every were its so amazing to see and no lights till dark.
    I am very pleased with the product and fitting which was flawless, Money well spent
    and would highly Recommend Norflo and Solarspot 10/10

  36. I have had two solar spots fitted in my bungalow. These were fitted to a bathroom and a study, both of which were permanently dark due to adjoin extension which meant no natural light entering property Andrew fitted the two solarspots in one day, no mess and left rooms clean and tidy. The difference is truly amazing, we now have to make sure that the lights are not on AS IT IS SO BRIGHT NOW!!. Even on duller days the light factor has improved dramatically. I could recommend Andrew to anyone.

    1. Im glad the Solarspots have given you the Natural daylight in the rooms you were looking for.

  37. I have become severely sight impaired and my daytime windowless bathroom was a problem not only for me but my visitors too.
    We asked Andy for an initial survey and from that time through to the Sun Tunnel installation he was most professional which was completed without any mess whatsoever.
    Following his advice we opted for the LED Sun Tunnel light fitting which offers a great light and replaced our former 4 bulb ceiling light.
    Overall superb works, many thanks Andy, we recommend you to all.

    1. Thanks Margart,Im pleased that it has helped and the addition of the LED bulb in the tube makes the room bright even at night.

  38. Excellent job. Really pleased with the light it has created in our windowless hall. Thank you Andrew

  39. Both service and product absolutely great .I have no hesitation in recommending Andy. Dark hall transformed and now looking to brighten up Kitchen.

    1. Thanks Rod, It has made a big difference to your hall. Hope to see you in the new year to look at your Kitchen.

  40. Andrew arrived as scheduled bright and early at prepared the hall area for the installation in order that he would not make a mess. Once the light position was established he progressed into the loft area to establish the dome position and then onto the roof to fit. With both dome and the Solarspot outlet position established in the hallway these elements were then connected with the tube approx. 3m including two bends.The overall installation caused little disruption to us, even the dogs got on ok with him. With the job finished a bright hallway and happy wife he left us at 2.30 pm, job done customer satisfied expectations surpassed thank you.

    1. Thanks Frank,I’m happy you’re pleased with the result.Now you have a bright hallway full of natural daylight light.

  41. Andrew contacted us before he came to carry out the installation and from the info he asked for, and I was able to provide, he was able to give us an accurate quote.
    He contacted us to make sure everything was ok the day before installation and suggested if it was likely to rain he would rearrange the date.
    Andrew arrived about 8:45 and fitted two sunpipes into our living room. This room was very dark as we had built a 4 metre extension leaving the room with no window.
    It took Andrew about 6 hours for the two pipes and there was no mess at all – he covered the carpets and furniture before he started and made a very neat job of cutting into the ceiling.
    The transformation in the room has been amazing. It has basically allowed us to use the room during the day without needing any artificial light.
    Why our builder and his architect didn’t suggest this before the extension was built I don’t know but the sunpipes are a great solution to giving natural light back into a windowless room.

    1. Thank John,I can see from the photos you sent me when the sun was out its made a big difference.

  42. Andrew installed our sun tube and was just fabulous! From initial contact with him on the 6th September to the installation date (19th September 2018) the customer service was excellent and communications were constant – he replied to my e-mails and/or texts immediately. He was extremely professional and on the day of the installation he arrived at 8am and had everything completed by 11am. His work was extremely neat both inside the kitchen and on the roof. I can’t wait to see the benefits now – he has helped to transform our kitchen from dark to light! I would definitely recommend Andrew and Norflo if you every wish to install a sun tube! 5*

    1. Thanks Nicky, Its brightened the dark end of the kitchen up and i managed to get it finished before the rain came in.

  43. Very pleased with Andy and his professional manner in giving us information at his own house . He carried out the survey and organised the installation of our sun tunnel, he took care of ordering materials and rang night before to confirm time of installation . Arrived spot on time and installation took approx 4 hours there was no mess to clean up or decorating.first class job. I would recommend to any one wanting more light in a dark room

  44. Andy did a fantastic job. Arrived on time and completed the Sun tunnel well within the estimated time. Our landing and hall have been transformed as a result. Thank you for a great job.

  45. Had 2 sunspots putin the lounge as tends to be dark, due to extension on the back of our bungalow, what a difference. Installed by Andy no mess, arrived on time, such a nice man, would highly recommend him and sunspots Thanks Andy. Mark & Christine.

  46. I would recommend Andy he was very professional did a brilliant job. The difference in the living room was amazing. Thanks Andy. Chris & Mark.

  47. Thank you to Andy for his excellent professional work. The Solarspot has transformed a dark hallway and stair well.

    1. Thanks for the comments, The Solarspot D38 was the right one to go for to get the light down in to the hall.

  48. Arrived before nine, finished by three! No mess no fuss, just a first class job with which we are delighted. Changed our lounge from a dark and forboding environment into a sunny room, great. Would recommend this company to anyone and in fact have already done so. For once a man that does a good job at a keen price with no disappointments.
    We really enjoyed having Andrew in our house.
    Thank you.

  49. Wow wow wow! The Solarspot has change our living room into a lovely light place. It faces North and was very dark especially in the winter. It’s made such a difference and Andrew did the job quickly and cleanly. So pleased

    1. Thanks Trish, It has made a big improvement but i think the Solarspot will come into its own when the winter gets here.

  50. Andrew was great! He arrived on time, was careful not to make a mess, did a great job and left everywhere tidy. The Solarspot is everything I was hoping for and I am sorry I took so long deciding to have it done. I thought I might have to have the kitchen ceiling decorated but it looks as if it has always been there.I would , and will definitely recommend Andrew if you need a Solarspot fitted.

    1. Thanks for the kind words, and yes the Solarspot has made a massive difference to the kitchen

  51. This is the second time we have had Andrew to fit a Solarspot and again we are very pleased with the results .
    A genuine guy and very hardworking ,nothing is too much trouble .
    Would highly recommend .
    Thank you .

  52. Two 380mm Solarspot tubes onto our landing were installed competently and efficiently with very little disturbance. We are also pleased with the lighting effect which also spreads into the hall below.

  53. Andrew is an exceptional installer with great attention to detail. We could not recommend Andrew’s work more highly.

  54. Just had a Solarspot D25 sun tube fitted in our bathroom by Andrew at Norflo. Had been pondering for well over 12 months on what to do to brighten up our dark bathroom and after hearing mixed reviews on different types of tubes we were really unsure which way to go. Following the solar spot install recommended by Andrew I must say I couldn’t believe how much light it lets in and the difference it has now made to our bathroom. We finally have natural light, wish I did it earlier!!! Thanks!

  55. Our problem was a dark north facing kitchen dining area, having researched the various sun tunnel products available i was keen to get good advice. Andrew was terrific at both the initial phone call and ongoing installation. No hard sell just good advice and professional installation. Delighted with the end result, can’t recommend both Andrew and Solarspot products highly enough.

  56. Fantastic results with three Solarspots installed in our bungalow this has made a huge difference to our home. Andy was a very efficient and clean worker and very profesional . We would highly recommend Andy and Solarspot. Thank You.

  57. Very pleased with the installation of our Solarspot. Andy was very organised. He arrived early and had obviously planned his work with a view to the weather. He worked swiftly and efficiently running any issues past us before proceeding. He left the place clean and tidy and was quick to send the receipt. We would recommend both Andy and Solarspot. Thank you.

  58. The installation of two sun tubes to our lounge area has made a massive daytime improvement to our home.
    We entrusted the supply and installation to Norflo and were most impressed with their professional and efficient handling of the whole procedure.

  59. Wow what a difference ! Andrew did a great job no mess no fuss Highly recommended

  60. Andrew came round to replace my existing ceiling light system x 2 for Solarspots. I was very pleased as the light they give off is much better than my old ones. Andrew was very helpful and polite and very clean and tidy around my house (a bonus!) . I ended up having an additional one put in my kitchen. I would definitely recommend and use again. thank you Andrew 🙂

  61. We purchased a Solarspot system with Norflo Services carrying out the installation. Solarspot completely transformed a dining room with only a north facing window. Andrew who carried out the installation did a fantastic job under trying circumstances in our roof space. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Norflo

  62. I had a Solarspot and Solar-Air installed. The results are amazing, the amount of light even on a dull day is outstanding. Andrew the installer did a fantastic job, clean and efficient and completed in a morning. Would highly recomend.

    1. This is the second time Andy has been to our home. The first time was to install a solarspot which we were really pleased with. The second time (2 years later) was to re-site it due to renovation. Andy was able keep the external work in situ and instead reroute the tunnel to an en-suite that was windowless. Both jobs were extremely well carried out, communication is always great. Andy is a professional who is trustworthy and honest. The final bill was actually slightly less than quoted as he didn’t need to use quite as much tubing as he thought! A rare find these days. Thank you Andy

      1. Thanks Tracy
        It was nice to be able to reroute the systems so it could still be put to good use.

  63. Andy arrived promptly as arranged. Nice friendly man, confident about the job, suggested slight variation based on his experience and completed the job without a hitch. Excellent result and all finished in the morning. Good result! Thanks Andy

  64. We are absolutely delighted with the solar lighting system installed in our dining room. The difference it has made is amazing and this was for the smaller tube as the larger one couldn’t be fitted through the roof beams. As an extended bungalow, window light from the lounge just doesn’t reach the dining room, which has no window. The solar lighting system brings sunlight down via a high reflective tube from a receptor on the roof. The installation was quickly, efficiently and professionally installed by Andrew in half a day with no mess and for a very reasonable price. We are so impressed that we are having a second system installed in the hallway, also short of natural light. The only ‘problem’ is that we keep thinking we have left a light on!

  65. I had Norflo install 2 no D25 Solarspots into my kitchen to help increase light levels following construction of an orangery in front of the kitchen window. We did look at another system which was cheaper but the Solarspot reflector was what made us go with the system. It was convenient that Norflo was locally based and quick to provide a price.

    We found Andy at Norflo to be extremely professional and responsive to queries. He turned up on time, kept the area tidy and provided a nice neat installation. We had issues with the weather and Andy suggested doing a part install to set out the system internally and then await better weather to complete the external elements. This interfaced well with my orangery build programme and Andy was very accommodating, swapping jobs to suit weather conditions. The job is now complete and though the difference in light levels is not as drastic as say in a room with no windows, we have noticed increased light levels.
    We highly recommend Norflo and are now considering a D38 unit to help brighten up our hallway. *****

  66. Had Sun pipe installation in my bathroom and it’s great! No more depressing darkness.Andrew was quick,clean and efficient giving helpful advice along the way.Information on delivery time was spot on,no between 8.0am and 5.0pm business!Would recommend Solar spot (and Andrew)to anyone.Shame I haven’t got room for any more!

  67. We used Norflo Services Ltd to install a Solarspot in our kitchen. Norflo were recommended to us by a friend. We found Norflo to be professional, competitive and responsive. They turned up on time, tidied up after themselves and have provided an excellent installation. In terms of performance, we went for the 375mm diameter version, we are delighted with the performance of this unit which has significantly outperformed our expectations. we would have no hesitation in recommending Norflo.

  68. Irene (Nottingham)
    Having bought a Bungalow we did not like, just to live next to our Son. Mainly because of two gloomy rooms at the back because of extensions. I searched high and low for a solution.
    When I hit on the Sun Tunnel option I then did loads of research to find the best (mainly to give the most light) and came up with the Solarspot.
    Then mission two was to find a good installer. Not easy I have to say as I found dedicated fitters thin on the ground.
    When I hit on Andy by some links on you tube and subsequently rang him up I thought all my Christmas’s had come at once, a genuine nice guy!
    A follow up visit to discuss what we wanted confirmed this. He was professional and knew his stuff.
    We had two DS38 tubes fitted. Andy and his Son Ross did an amazing professional job without hitch even though it was not straight forward.
    I had covered everywhere down expecting a mess but in actual fact there was very little which was also a bonus.
    THE OUTCOME Well simply ‘ILLUMINATING’. It’s awesome makes soooo much difference it has nicely equalized the light over three connecting areas. We like the bungalow now!
    In my opinion it’s a ‘no brainer’ if you need more light get one and get these guys to fit it. You won’t be disappointed!
    I am an inherent worrier with a general mistrust of tradesmen in general and even I felt reassured enough to let them get on with the job whilst I removed the kindly left weeds from the previous owner.
    I have left a lengthy review so that you will appreciate it’s not fake and the comments are genuinely felt. Well done Andy and Ross you fitted an ‘Awesome’ product superbly. Highly Recommend. !!!
    PS, I’m currently considering having another one in the hall after seeing the difference it makes.

    1. Thank you so much for your review, your kind words and comments are appreciated. The systems can make such a difference to living spaces and at a reasonable price too, we just need people to spread the word and talk about the impact having natural light can have.


  69. Andrew is lovely and the Solarspot system is amazing! Our dark landing with no windows is now light and bright beyond our expectations. We are so pleased and would highly recommend.

  70. I would like to thank you formally for the Solar light you fitted at my home. You were a first rate professional gentleman. It was a delight to have you in my home. It was a dark cloudy day when you left. The next morning, what a difference the whole room was a blaze of sunlight; it was almost celestial.

    I would not have any reservation regarding recommending you for whatever job you undertook. Professional in all aspects.

  71. Literally brilliant! We have a bungalow which is partly an old farm building but has some latter extension. We HAD a gloomy dining room after the addition of a conservatory and a long hallway with only daylight from front door windows. After the installation of Solarspots these areas have been transformed. Andrew worked in a very precise and careful manner leaving no mess. We would have no hesitation in recommending the product and the installer.
    Thank you again.

  72. Hi Andrew
    Can’t stop smiling.Gone from pitch black bathroom to putting make-up on in daylight.
    Excellent service, again, thank you.

  73. An almost instant transformation to a dark area in our kitchen. No more putting on the lights in the middle of the day! Andrew was extremely reliable, knowledgeable and did a really neat, mess free job. We’re really pleased. Thank you!

  74. We had a really dark hallway with no natural light and researched sun tunnels in general for weeks before making a decision. We are so pleased that we used Andrew to source advise and fit the 2 units. He was incredibly efficient, clean, tidy and has done a super job. The finished result has exceeded all expectations and I would personally recommend him to which I already have to colleagues and friends.

  75. Absolutely amazed at how bright and light our once dull and dreary kitchen now looks. We have only just had the solarspot fitted today and cannot believe the difference it has made on reasonably dull day can’t wait to see what it looks like when the sun comes out. Would highly recommend the product and company and would also like to thank Andrew for fitting the solarspot and making it so easy and mess free, hes done a great job.

  76. It was a pleasure to have Andrew doing the installation,and the end result was excellent, we do not need a light on in the kitchen in the daytime.
    The installation was carried out in a very porofessional manner,and I will recommend your company to anyone.
    Once again thank you for coming to Porthcawl to install the system for me.

  77. Andrew was very prompt and worked very quickly and efficiently and left everything very tidy, I can’t praise him enough. I am delighted with my Solarspot, my new ensuite bathroom will be very light once finished.
    Many thanks

  78. We’ve been pleasantly surprised by the Solarspot – we had expected that it would be good, but thought that the ‘after’ pictures on the advertising material might look so bright because of the contrast when taking the photo.
    As it happens it simply is that bright – it provides more light for the hallway than if we were to have a window in there I think. It turned out to be a wise decision to go for the larger pipe as it provides good lighting even when it’s gloomy or twilight outside.
    What really proves how effective it is at pulling the light in though is night time, when you see a glow coming from it just from the streetlights (which are not directly visible from that part of the
    roof) and the starlight!
    It really has made the world of difference to our hallway, transforming it from a dark hole into a far more welcoming space.
    As for Andrew, he was really very good – he contacted us the day before to confirm we were still good to go, as well as advising us of his arrival time. He then turned up exactly when he said he would, got the job done very quickly and tidily and was very amiable and professional.

  79. Firstly, workmen like Andrew are difficult to come across! He is totally organised, efficient and his workmanship is excellent. We have just installed our 3rd sun tube, this time in a new windowless shower room. The difference solarspots make is incredible, they have transformed our dark victorian semi into light bright spaces. Andrew managed to get a solarspot from the roof all the way down to a dark corner in our kitchen 2 years ago and is as bright now as it was the day it was fitted. Fantastic product and service, I can’t recommend highly enough, look no further!

  80. Andrew provided a first class service. The job was completed quickly with absolutely no mess and the result is amazing. Our previously gloomy kitchen is now so full of light I keep thinking I have left the light on.
    I would certainly recommend Andrew to anyone considering this sort of work.

  81. The two Solarspot units we have had fitted, one in the dark end of the lounge and one in a dark hallway are brilliant, keep going to turn the light off ! The two installations completed without any mess by Andrew have just been subjected to a very heavy downpour – no problems, all very watertight. Can recommend the system to anyone wanting additional daylight into a room.

  82. We are delighted with the results of this installation in our (previously) dark hallway – wow what a difference !
    But equally we were delighted with the care and attention offered by Andy in regard to the whole process – what a nice guy !

  83. You don’t often get the chap on the website coming to do the installation for you himself!! The whole job was done in a morning, when I thought it would take all day. Andrew tidied up around him, leaving no mess. The solarspot is really great! I can now see the cobwebs, eek.

  84. We had 2- d38s fitted two days ago in our kitchen, and previously looking at the your company’s leaflet I naively though that the pictures had been “touched up” but you can imagine my response when fully installed, first I was shocked, surprised and highly delighted by the result, your product has exceeded all our expectations, the kitchen is now the brightest room in the house, I will finish now by telling you that the fitter “Andrew” did an excellent job completing the work , he was courteous, efficient and very tidy, his performance compliment you excellent product, I wish you both continued success Leonard and Agnes P. Bolton

  85. The D38 solar spot has made a real difference to the light on our landing. Having read previous posts I asked Andrew to install it. I originally was going for the D25 but following Andrew’s recommendation I went for the larger diameter one, and we are delighted with the result.
    The work was completed most professionally and I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew, Norflo and the product.

  86. Delighted with the result of our purchase. Fitted around my schedule (Thanks for that, a surprise for my wife ) Job completed with competence and courtesy. Result exceeded expectation, transformed our dark kitchen.
    Good job done, would recommend to anyone .

  87. Installation was efficient, pleasant and mess free. Andrew is pleasant and helpful. The fittings have made a big difference to the light levels in the bungalow.Recommended.

  88. Andrew has just fitted a solarspot in our small windowless sitting room. What a difference it has made. We are absolutely delighted. Andrew talked us through each process involved in the fitment and was very efficient.
    Many thanks

  89. WoW,Wow, Wow

    Andrew recently installed my Solarspot system, I have to say the service and installation I got from Chris, Elaine from my initial inquiry to Andrew contacting me prior to installation was second to none ! Really impressive results better than I ever envisage. Andrew is a lovely guy the fitting was no fuss mess or bother and was finished within 5 hours even with the odd cup of coffee and chat. I would highly recommend Andrew and the team. The Solarspot system is definitely the most superior system on the market and worth paying a little extra as the product really does out perform I believe others on the market from my own research.

    Many thanks Andrew

  90. Andrew recently fitted a solar tube above our dark stair well. The results are fantastic and we are very happy with both the equipment and the fitting service. I highly recommend Andrew’s services and the results have been well worth the cost.

  91. Excellent service. Fuss and mess free installation. Would not hesitate
    to recommend.

  92. The back of the hall in our bungalow has always been dark. We have been contemplating a solarspot for a long time, but were never really sure of their efficiency. We met Andrew at the Building Show and were impressed with the product and with Andrew. We paid a deposit and Andrew did the rest. He is courteous and competent, taking on board my views on where to fit it etc. All I can say is that the product far exceeds our expectations. The Solarspot is a quality product that is well fitted with no mess and no inconvenience. I would recommend Solarspot and Andrew to family and friends, superb service.

  93. The ordering and fitting of our D25 Solarspot could not have been
    easier. Of all the home improvements that we have had this has been
    the most pleasant experience. Andrew fitted the system really quickly
    and with the minimum of mess and was a pleasure to have in our house.
    The result was excellent, only one regret – we should have gone for
    the D38. The system is excellent and comes highly recommended as does

  94. After a lot of research we found SolarSpot light tubes and chose them as the most effective design. Andrew was recommended as an installer, and we have been genuinely delighted, not only with the tubes (which absolutely transformed a very dark corridor in a bungalow) but also with Andrew. He was helpfulness itself, and did the work very efficiently and with no mess. After the job, if it wasn’t for the amazing effects of the tubes, we wouldn’t have known that the installer had been working in the house. We anticipate having further tubes installed, and will have no hesitation selecting SolarSpot and Andrew to do the work.

  95. Very pleased indeed, both with the product and the installation. I have no hesitation in recommending this team.

  96. I am loving my new solar spot that you put up for me Andrew.You were so good and you made no mess.
    Thank you so much Andrew Michelle

  97. We looked at a number of light tube alternatives -Chris at Solarspot was very helpful and they came out best on service, price, and the light transmission efficiency of the tube (see the Building Research Establishment report).

    Andrew’s fitting was fast, efficient, clean, and friendly – highly recommended.

    The whole thing has been a pleasure and we can’t believe the difference the tube has made to our prevously underlit dining area.

  98. Had a Solarpot D38 installed by Andy yesterday…. very good service, arrived on time, very tidy work and job completed to perfection and in just 4 hours!

  99. Andrew installed a D38 system on our dark, windowless landing
    yesterday. He was prompt, efficient and friendly, and the landing and
    stairs are transformed! We would definitely recommend the Solarspot
    system (and that you try to make sure Andrew installs it for you).

  100. Our once dark shower room is now bright and inviting thanks to Andrew fitting a sun tube, complete with bulb unit for night time use, which is a really useful addition. He also fitted one in our hallway and we were really impressed with the care Andrew took with the installation and thoroughly recommend him.

  101. While we were having scaffolding up for another renovation job, we decided to have a light tube installed to brighten the long, dark upstairs hall in our terrace house. I researched the products and decided Solarspot sounded good. The team at Solarspot recommended Andrew Booton as the local installer, and he installed the tube for us last Thursday. He was so quick , efficient and friendly, even while having to install the tube in a very cramped roof space and move our light fitting to accommodate it. He told me that the size tube I thought I needed wouldn’t fit, so we went with a smaller diameter but this has proved perfectly adequate to light the space. I’m absolutley delighted with the results. Even though the weather has been cloudy ever since the installation, I keep thinking I’ve left the light on in the hall!

  102. Andrew fitted a D38 Solarspot light tube into our lounge this week with amazing results.
    This unit is cleverly hidden in a built-in wardrobe passing through the first floor unseen.
    His service is prompt, courteous and very efficient.

  103. We were very pleased with the result of our solarspot installed by Andrew in the hallway of out bungalow. what a difference it has made, certainly gives you the feel good factor with all the extra light.
    Andrew is a great chap and knows his stuff , and we wouldnt hesitate to recommend him.

  104. We have recently had a D38 Solarspot system installed in our home-office. One side of our office has no windows so natural light was limited. After discussing the situation with Andrew who came out to advise the best approach which was greatly appreciated. Andrew worked in a tidy manner and was very considerate of our busy office whilst he went about the installation. I would not hesitate to recommend Andrew from Norflo or the Solarspot system – a very professional service.

  105. Had a D38 Solarspot fitted in our lounge in September 2014. Andrew Booton carried out all the work and I couldn’t fault him. He was polite and tidy and explained everything as he was working. The Solarspot has added so much more light into our living room. Will definitely be recommending both Andrew and the solarspot to my friends and family.

  106. We have recently had a D38 solarspot fitted into our landing ceiling as with all the doors closed there was no natural light. We were amazed by how much light it let through especially on overcast days, even the hallway below is much brighter. All work was carried out by Andrew Booton who was polite very tidy and efficient. It is refreshing to have work carried out by somebody who not only knows the product and what you can do but also listens to the customers needs creating the best possible solution. Thanks Andrew.

  107. After suffering the too hot/too cold sinario with our conservatory, we decided to go for one of the new lightweight conservatory roofs,it made a huge difference, but the downside was, that it left my kitchen very dark and gloomy,I was devastated, I love lots of light,and can’t cope with dark and gloomy,it was just like the proverbial ‘ black hole of Calcutta’.
    So I went on the internet to look for a solution,and I came across these daylighting systems, there were Various ones but chose Solarspot who came out top in the reviews.
    I spoke to Chris who organized it all for me and also got me someone to fit it,which was Andrew,and I think I got the best.
    Andrew was a very hard worker,and did the job cleanly and efficiently.
    I am so pleased I chose this company,as everything was done smoothly and efficiently from start to finish.
    The product is amazing,and it has returned my kitchen to its former degree of light if not even brighter.
    I still cannot believe the huge difference it has made to my kitchen.
    I would like to say a big thank to Andrew,and also to Chris for organizing everything for me.
    I will have no hesitation in recommending this product to anyone who is going through the dark room syndrome.
    Sheila (from Barnsley)

  108. Thanks for coming so far to install, only problem so far is I keep stopping to turn off the “light” as I walk past!

  109. We are delighted with our Solarspot which has made a significant difference in our Kitchen/Diner. Andrews service was of the highest quality and we would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone. My wife has even put a picture on her Facebook page something never done before.

  110. Our kitchen was very dark . On July 29th Andrew came and fitted a Solarspot . What a difference it has made – we keep thinking we have left the light on ! Many thanks Andrew and it was a pleasure to meet you .

  111. We had a Solarspot D25 light tube fitted in our inner Hallway by Norflo on 23rd July, Andrew the fitter said he would be on site at 8.00am and at 7.58am he duly arrived at our door. The work was carried out very efficiently and with the use of dust sheets as required and was completed by 12.30pm.
    Excellent job and the result was super! would recommend without hesitation.
    We also keep thinking we have left a light on!
    We are now looking at installing one in our en-suite also!

  112. We had a Solarspot D25 light tube fitted by Norflo today. It was all
    done very efficiently & tidely in a matter of hours.
    Excellent job and the result was super! would recommend without
    We keep thinking we have left a light on!

  113. Andrew did a fantastic job installing our solarspot. He is polite, friendly, efficient and super tidy.
    We are delighted with the result. Thank you!

  114. Fitting the Solarspot has made a HUGE difference to our dark hall – we keep feeling we need to switch the light off! Just what we had hoped for.
    Andrew did a first class job. He is a pleasant, efficient and tidy worker – leaving no mess or redecoration needed. Highly recommended.

    Many thanks,


  115. In our bungalow kitchen it had become customary during the day for my wife and I to switch on lights prior to preparing or cooking food, however, since the installation of our Solarspot tube, the kitchen has been transformed. Electric lighting is no longer needed during the day, and the introduction of diffused light has given a gloomy kitchen an amazing face-lift. A great product!
    Thanks to Elaine Bailey at Solarspot for her help, and also for recommending Andrew Booton for the installation.
    Andrew carried out the installation with minimal disruption. It was a quick, neat, tidy job, and a pleasant experience to deal with such a competent installer.

  116. We downsized to a bungalow a couple of years ago and built a dining room extension off the kitchen. However, this made the East facing kitchen quite dark. After minimal research I fitted a flexible light tube and, although there was some improvement, my wife wanted more light. I carried out more detailed research on this occasion and found Solarspot; I discussed my requirement with Chris, who was most helpful, and he recommended the D-38 with Andrew Booton to carry out the installation. The system was installed by Andrew in a morning and we are very pleased with the result, especially my wife; it is much, much brighter than the flexible system and has lit up our dining area in the kitchen. Andrew was very efficient and tidy during the installation, and is a very competent installer. He is easy to get on with and is a very agreeable and pleasant man. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Solarspot system, and, in particular, Andrew Booton as the installer.

  117. I have had a Solarspot tube fitted to provide light to a particularly dark landing. The results are truly spectacular and like others before me I am more than happy to endorse the product. The installation was carried out by Andrew quickly and efficiently in 4 hours. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew for his skill and proffessionalism. Thank you Andrew.

  118. We are delighted with the Solarspot unit recently fitted into a dark passage in our Bungalow. The light it gives is truly amazing . Andrew the fitter did a superb job ,in fact the complete process from ordering to completion was excellent. A great Company and great service all round, would highly recommend to anyone.

  119. We had a Solarspot put in our dinning room yesterday by Andrew from Norflo. We had a kitchen extension and a conservatory
    about 22 years ago so it made the dinning room quite dark. The difference is unbelievable, Many thanks we wish we had done this yeas ago. Delighted with the result. No mess to clean up and light in the room. Brilliant.Jean and Colin

  120. I have just had a Solarspot fitted in my windowless bathroom and the results are amazing! I keep checking I haven’t left the light on by mistake. The light from the tube is very bright and it also adds extra light to the landing. Andrew was very friendly and professional and the tube was fitted in half a day. I’m absolutely delighted and wish I’d had one fitted sooner.

    1. Couldn’t agree more with all these comments. Finding it difficult to adjust to so much light in a dining area that always needed the light on – until now. Been talking about it for years and at last have had it fitted – amazing results.

  121. Chris and Chris Jones ( Somerset )
    One of the best decisions we have ever made, was to have two Solarspot Tubes installed in our property. one in our stairwell and landing area which has always been extremely dark , also one in our en-suite bathroom, where there was no natural light.
    Andrew of Norflo has done a first class job installing the Solarspot Tubes , we find it quite refreshing having these areas flooded with natural daylight now.
    Many, many ,many thanks to Andrew for a neat and tidy job and also to Chris Taffs of Solarspot for recommending Andrew Booton to carry out the work.

  122. Andy has done a brilliant job. After a bad experience with a competitor I have had the absolute opposite experience with Andy. Our roof has a particularly steep pitch and he took the trouble to travel to do a full survey and reassure us that the job could be done easily. This was fulfilled and I am delighted with the result.
    The product has made a huge difference to hall, stairway and landing.

  123. Just a brief note to express our delight with the Solarspot install. The results are truly “night and day”, the system and the quality of the workmanship are “top drawer”.Indeed it is breath of fresh air to experience the sort of true customer care and real value for money provided on this occassion.
    We have no hesitation in recommending your systems and services to anyone seeking a good job well done

  124. I had previously installed ‘sun pipes’ at my last home and found that they were amazing. The landing in our new house is dark and so I wanted to install such a lighting system. Hence, I contacted Andy. I have found him to be professional and knowledgeable. He fitted a Solarspot light last week and the increased light flow in to our hall and landing is fantastic. Andy, arrived on time, carried out a quality installation and left the place clean and tidy. Thank you

  125. We had two light tubes fitted last week and can thoroughly recommend both Andrew and his Solarspots to anyone. Not only was he punctual, hard working and very tidy but friendly and helpful – a real pleasure to have around.

  126. We had a solarspot fitted last week in our dining room and the transformation is great! We now have natural day light in what was a very dark room. Andrew was very professional, poilte and courteous. We can certainly reccommend solarspot fitted by Andrew.

  127. I already appear in these testimonials in relation to the installation of two light tubes a year ago. They have proved so effective, I felt that the time had come to have two more installed. I knew from his first visit that Andrew is a true craftsman – and a gentleman. I heartily recommend him.

  128. Had a solarspot fitted in our hall and it has transformed it from a dark dingy room into a lovely light space the only down side is we keep thinking we’ve left the light on! Andrew provides a fast and professional fitting service and I would thoroughly recommend him and the product.

  129. We had two internal rooms in our offices. The rooms were dark and required electric lighting whenever they were in use. Having now had a solarspot fitted into each of the rooms they have been transformed. Like many others the natural instinct is to turn off the light before in our case realising that the light was never as bright or effective as the solarspots are. We now have two rooms which are desirable to work in. The installation was painless and quick with both solarspots installed within the day. Hugely impressive.

  130. Excellent product producing amazing results. Andrew Booton fitted 2 solarspots, 1 into a dark landing and 1 into windowless bathroom. Both these rooms have been transformed and we keep checking to see if we have left a light on. The tubes were carefully and professionally fitted by Andrew in one day with no mess at all. We would recommend both Andrew and this product to everybody. If you have a dark part of the house this could be your answer.

  131. We had no natural lighting to the bathroom in our 1st floor flat. Installing a Solarspot has given us a brightly lit bathroom during daylight hours, we no longer have need of artificial lighting during the day. The work was carried out quickly and efficiently with the minimum of disruption and no mess to clear up afterwards.

  132. We had a light pipe fitted in our dark upstairs hallway. Now we keep thinking we have left the light on – its brilliant. Installation was neat and quick in our Edwardian terraced house.

  133. We were really surprised how much light we got from this solarspot. Andrew was a very helpful and friendly man. I would recommend this product to anybody with a dark area or a room without a window. Thank you Andrew.

  134. I had a light tube fitted in a dark hall last week and have now ordered another for the back of an extended lounge. The transformation in the hall is amazing. Lots of light now. I wish we had done this years ago. Andrew carried out the work so well and was so nice. Many thanks.

  135. Two sunpipes D38 fitted one in hallway the other in the bathroom my family and I were absolutely blown away with the amout of light that comes through, amazing product.
    The fitter Andrew was very professional and helpful would recomend to everyone, excellent service.
    P.S Believe Andy when he says they are gonna be bright.

  136. It is amazing. We really can’t believe the difference that it has made. Every time I went in there I thought that the light had been left on, and when I mentioned this to David he said the same.

    The whole process of obtaining the sun tunnel from my first ‘phone call to you, to having it fitted by Andy, was a dream. I wish everything that we have had done in the house was as easy as that. Andy was super – he was such a pleasant person to have working in the house. We will contact him ourselves to thank him but we’d like you to pass on our thanks as well, if you would, please.

    We asked him about the possibility of fitting one at the top of our very dark stairs so we’ll be in touch shortly about this.

    Thank you so much for your brilliant service. I shall recommend you to anyone who is thinking of having one.

  137. If you are looking for an installer for your Solarspot system, you will not find a more professional fitter than Andrew at Norflo Daylight. Andrews expertise is second to none and you are guaranteed an installation of the highest standards.

    Thanks Andrew – keep up the great work!

  138. We are thrilled with our new Solarspot in the living room, although we too keep thinking we have left the lights on! It brightens the whole room and I can only add to other comments that Andrew was very friendly and helpful throughout.

  139. 10 years ago I moved into my present house and the previous owner had suggested that I have a sun pipe installed in the bathroom. The inside bathroom was the only downside to the house, but I went ahead and made the purchase. Over the last 10 years I had thought about and read up on various sun pipes and finally this year I took the plunge. The Solarspot has totally transformed the bathroom upstairs, making it far more welcome and the added effect is that the landing is also benefiting from the extra light in the bathroom. My advice to everyone is that waiting ten years is such a waste of time when Solarspot is affordable and Andrew Booton did such a professional installation.

    Thank you to Chris of Solarspot and Andrew.


  140. We are very impressed with them especially the one in the bathroom which bathes the whole area in a soft, natural light now. The result is really good and the light which is now getting to the darker end of the kitchen and bathroom is a vast improvement on what we had before. Thank you both for a very speedy and professional job

  141. This is just a short note to say thanks for putting me in touch with Andrew Booton. I called Andrew after receiving your e-mail and he was able to offer me a cancellation; he arrived yesterday, on time and worked non-stop to finish the job. The man is a perfectionist and a pleasure to have around. As for the product; I can’t tell you how pleased we are, the tube has transformed a dark bathroom into something we can’t quite believe, it’s such a dramatic change. I’d be happy to recommend your Company and product to anyone. So, thanks for a great product and a first class service.

  142. Just to say that I’m absolutely delighted with the Solarspot unit installed by Andrew from Norflo last week. The system has completely changed the look of my bungalow hallway. I used to have to keep the doors open all day, otherwise it was always dark. The transformation is incredible, even on a cloudy day.

    Many thanks

    PS. It even works with moonlight!

  143. We had a solarspot fitted recently as our lounge was just too dark, even on a light day, due to the fact our south wall has no windows (it overlooks next door garden).
    Chris from SolarSpot and Andrew from Norflo Services (our fitter) have transformed it between them.
    I am typing this quite happily in the light from the tunnel whereas before fitting it I would have been putting the electric light on. At last we have a normal lounge.
    For info, our tube is around 6m long and comes from the roof, through the loft and through a wardrobe in an upstairs bedroom to give light in the lounge.
    We are having a single storey extension built this summer and will get a couple of the roof kits with electric dimmers fitted.
    Brilliant (excuse the pun) product.

  144. We were amazed at what a difference the solarspot tube makes. At first I kept thinking I needed to turn the hall light off. The fitting only took a couple of hours and the fitter was very friendly and helpful. We wondered why we hadn’t done it before.It surpassed our expectations.

  145. We recently moved into this house – the old milking parlour. As pleased as we were to be adjacent to our daughter, our big misgiving was the darkness of the sitting room and kitchen – I think the milkmaids of yore must have been using night vision goggles! Our eldest son had installed light tubes in the past and was amazed at their effectiveness. Although we had not seen them we took his word and investigated purchase and installation. The winner of our research by a long way was Solarspot and the enthusiastic help of Chris. He recommended installer Andrew Booton and we went ahead. Like previous commentators, we were astonished at the difference the light tubes made – and Andrew made the fitting seem trouble and mess free. Many thanks to a good team – Chris and Andrew.
