We spoke to a number of installers before going with West Coast Skylights for the installation of two fixed and one opening Velux S06 skylight. The decision was driven by the confidence we felt from speaking with Ken. He just doesn’t sell them he is also the installer.
Originally we had planned a different sized Velux but we accepted a different configuration at similar cost as suggested by Ken which really worked out better than we had originally envisaged.
The quality of the installation was first class with attention to detail and the work area kept clean at all times and people showed up when we were told they would.
There was some complexity to the job and the engineering of the beams and added rafters could only be described as bomb proof.
Would definitely recommend and use them again.

Ken has just completed a skylight in our home kitchen area.
It was a lot more involved than I thought but it was no trouble to Ken who meticulously carried on with the job.
He is very concise in what he does and I must say very professional in the way he goes about his work.
It has made a huge difference to our house and in fact I would say it is a feature that only enhances the whole area.
Well done Ken and am only too happy to recommend you for any work .
Been enjoying our skylights and light well for some weeks now.
Makes an awesome differences to what was a dark cave like interior room. Instead of a dark gloomy place to avoid it now attracts with its light and openness to the sky.
Beautiful job, well balanced in size and fitted into confines of space available.
Ken takes great pride in his work and is helpful with design suggestions.
As a sole tradesman Ken is friendly, polite, helpful, and works quietly and cleanly.
I am sure we will be enjoying this room for many years to come. Value for money.

We were after a couple of large sky windows in our kitchen.
Due to our roof line we had been told by a couple of Velux installers that it couldn’t be done.
Ken was recommended to me as ‘if anyone can do it, Ken can’. And he did.
His thorough assessment of our property provided us with a viable solution. It was a tough job which involved changing our roof line.
He was meticulous in his measurements to make sure that the end result was balanced and visually pleasing.
Ken was upfront and transparent about cost and timeframes.
The job was completed quickly and will little or no mess. We love our Velux and cannot recommend Ken enough.
He’s the best in the business hand down!

When I rang Ken to get a quote for a Velux Window, it was professionalism from the start.
We arranged a time, he turned up at that time, and then went about a thorough inspection inside the roof area where the window was to be placed.
After that, Ken advised me of the different window sizes and positioning, automatic or non automatic opening, ceiling finishes and also showed me pictures of his previous jobs for comparison.
From this meet, Ken's knowledge and detail led us to give him my job on the spot.
Ken then organised a detailed quote, advised us how long it would take and started the job at the day and time we arranged.
He communicated with us throughout the entire installation and answered my queries readily.
I discovered that Ken does not cut corners, over engineers his supporting beams and we were always reassured it would be a professional job by his attention to detail and finish.
The job took a bit longer than he stated because the finish had to be "just right", but the price remained the same. I was really surprised that Ken even painted the ceiling afterwards.
The finished job was a real "WOW" for us. It really looked great and brightened the room fantastically.
I was delighted with the automatic blinds and window opening. They are so easy to operate with the modern touch pad controller.
We highly recommend Ken for your Velux Window installation knowing that your install will be given the same attention, detail and finish as ours.
You will not be disappointed. I am sure he will show you pictures of my install.

Ken installed a Velux skylight in our previously dark kitchen and wow, what a difference it has made!
We would definitely recommend him to anyone thinking of getting a skylight.
He is definitely very particular and passionate about the work which is great to see and takes the time to make sure the finished product is perfect.
Also keeps you up to date with progress the whole way through.
Thanks again Ken ...very satisfied customers

Ken was a breath of fresh air when it came to WA tradies.
He took the time talk & walk through options, clearly explaining the pro’s & con’s of the install.
He delivered a 1st class job, quality workmanship and made the extra effort to assure me, the customer, was satisfied.
Without doubt I’d recommend Ken for Velux.

It was great to deal with Ken.
He was reliable, prompt & very passionate about his work.
The quality of work for my 2 Skywindows was also excellent.
I highly recommend him.
West Coast Skylights successfully completed a very difficult and demanding skylight project at our family residence.
We found Ken (the owner) a pleasure to deal with.
Ken's design planning and eye for detail are second to none.
He always made sure that we understood everything about the build (price and design) before executing the works.
He conducted the works neatly, safely and without a glitch.
He coordinated several trades to ensure all associated interfaces (structure, water, electrical, insulation, roofing, timber work, gyprock, painting etc) were managed diligently and to program.
I have no hesitation recommending Ken and his business to perform highly technical skylight projects from start to finish.
Ken was great.

Ken was so happy to help, thank you so much, very happy.”
