I recently heard that Insula Dome Skylights on Horse Block Rd. is going out of business? Has anyone heard any news of this? Sad to see another local business buckle under the worsening economy.

Yes, it's true..they are currently looking for a buyer and it looks like they will shut their doors next week if they don't find one.

The bad economy doesn't help Insula Dome and other businesses in NYS, but at the heart of their troubles, is the fact that New York State residents are the MOST regulated by Laws...especially businesses !

"New York was ranked dead last in part because it has the highest taxes in the country, including those on property, selective sales, individual income and corporate-income, according to the report. They cited New York's spending on "other and unallocable" expenses, including public welfare, hospitals, electric power, transit, and employee retirement, as another reason for its ranking."

Insuladome's problems have nothing to do with taxes or regulations. They sold a line of skylights that were defective and had to replace nearly every one. They developed a reputation for horrible service and treated their distributors and customers poorly. They apparently also over-expanded by buying a skylight motor company.

I installed Insuladome skylights on mine and client's homes. I found them to be well-made and reliable products. I liked them better than Velux, which I saw leaking everywhere I found installations of them; I had good customer service from them. I'm sorry that they are out of business. One or two miserable, vindictive on-line kvetches do not a bad product make.

I used Supreme Skylights to replace my Insladome skylights a few years ago. The staff was helpful and the skylights work great. My contractor purchased them from ABC Supply but I'm sure there is a distributor by you also.
