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.

The owner had hired a ceo to help expand the business. They purchased a german company from conn. Which they lost their shirt on. The owner harry jensen made terrible business decisions and then didn't pay his vendors. He ripped off all his suppliers for millions of dollars. He was a real jerk and ruined many peoples lives including his employees.

You're the jerk, and a coward too. You ruined your own life, with heroin. That's why you were fired. But it's water under the bridge. Why are you on a low rent website talking about something from years ago?

I'd be happy to meet up and knock you out, if it will help you get on with your life.

I too have a leaky Insula-Dome Skylight. The new owners of the company refused to honor my warranty. People should have been filing complaints with the BBB about the sub-par skylights a long time ago and maybe a lot of us would not have put them in our homes.
