When they call themselves ELITE, they mean it.

After 10 years of living in our 100+ year old house, and countless stops and starts on the renovation train, we decided to finally pull the trigger and go big. We met Jay a little over a year ago, when we triple bid our renovation. We immediately knew we were going to be in good hands and engaged Elite as our contractor. After helping us with the scoping and permits, we were introduced to Keith, who became our project manager. We wanted to be out of our house for as little time as possible, and we knew that a three floor renovation, where we had to move staircases and deal with structural changes, that we wanted someone who could help us drive the project forward, while ensuring that things were done right. We were lucky to have struck that balance with Keith. He and our site supervisor Jamie worked tirelessly with the sub-trades to stick to a schedule. There was never a day when we came on site that there wasn't someone working. With a project this size, there are bound to be some hiccups, and we weren't unique there, however, what was unique was Elite's ability to work the problem and find a solution. Every. Single. Time. The project ended almost to the day that it was scheduled to finish. Not many people like their contractors at the end of a project this size, in fact many don't have anything nice to say about them....we have however, have nothing but good things to say about Jay, Keith and Jamie. They did right by us, and if given the opportunity I'm sure they will do right by you too.

Full interior renovation (including basement underpin)

Elite renovated our Leslieville semi over a six-month period from August 2017 to January 2018 based on plans we had drawn up by an architect. It was a complete gut including a basement underpin and moving the stairs. The only thing not touched was the kitchen extension on the back of the house.

The Elite team was fantastic to work with and did high-quality work. We are thrilled with the final product. Jay and Jez were highly responsive and patient with us as renovation newbies. The subcontractors they worked with were awesome. Our neighbours commented on how clean, kind and courteous the entire crew was. There were no surprises along the way, and any adjustments in cost or timing were due to requests we made along the way. Highly recommend and would work with them again in a heartbeat.

Full home restoration and renovation

We hired Elite to restore and renovate our century home. We had an amazing working relationship with Elite throughout the entire project. Their crews were always professional, showed up on time, worked every day and the entire project was completed within our expected timelines. Not that the project didn't have surprises and stress, but we were always able to work through a satisfactory solution that worked best for us and within our budget. At any point in the project, I knew what was going on, what crew was working where, what planning I needed to do and what the timelines were going forward. Their online schedule kept everyone, including us, in check to keep the project moving forward. Jay, Keith and their teams cared about our home and the finished product, as much as we did and as much as they do for their own homes. Even though we just built our forever home, I wouldn't hesitate to hire Elite again in the future.

Patio door installation

We hired Elite Construction & Renovations in 2018 to do a house modification that included cutting open a wall and installing a walk out door onto a newly lowered patio. Other than a few issues, we were quite pleased with the final result. BUT after the winter we found that bricks under the door sill were disintegrating. Elite showed no interest or ownership to the problem. Eventually the problem was identified as inferior ‘concrete’ bricks in the newly exposed basement wall that were subjected to freeze/thaw conditions. We had to hire another company to dig up the patio, replace the ‘concrete’ bricks with clay bricks, parge and waterproof the whole basement wall under the patio sliding door. In retrospect Elite should have identified the need for this work during the original construction phase, and this would have saved us the cost and the inconvenience of the extra work. We were disappointed in Elite’s lack of involvement in the issue.

Ian, I'm surprised by this review? The work that you had to do after was not part of our contract nor was it something we ever discussed during construction. I don't think it's fair for you to review us on work that we were not paid to do. I do understand your frustration and that's why we helped you so much in getting the masons to come out and help all of us identify the problems. I believe we went above and beyond what you paid us to do.

Framing

We were very fortunate to work with Elite Construction on the framing of one of their custom homes. Ryan and Jay were very organized and paid always on time and the site was always in great condition. Thank you guys and we hope to work again soon!

Two floor house addition

Elite did a great job building a "shell" for my two floor addition on concrete pillars in the Beaches. The "shell" consisted of the framing, roofing and spray foam in the roof and ground floor. From the beginning to the end their approach was professional, confident and considerate. Their estimate of time and cost was accurate so there were no surprises. I particularly appreciated their attention to detail and making sure I was comfortable with any minor decisions that had to be made.
They were a pleasure to work with.

House Addition

We hired Elite for a two-story house addition in the Beaches. The result was better than we could have expected – our addition ties in seamlessly with the existing house, while having a very unique and modern look on its own. The project was essentially on time and on budget, although it was important for us to outline the scope in great detail during the design stage to minimize potential cost overruns. We were extremely impressed with their diligence and transparency throughout the process.

Keith was an excellent project manager – very detail-oriented, responsive and caring. Stephanie had a fantastic design eye and helped us through the daunting approval process. As the owner, Jay left most of the day-to-day work to his team, but whenever we required his input he was always keen to help and really understood our vision from the start. Finally, Scott / Ken were keen to address any outstanding issues after project completion. There were some small delays and errors made by some of their tradespeople, but that is inevitable on a large and complicated project.

Definitely a 10/10 team.

Bathroom construction and renovation

I used Elite for the construction of 2 new bathrooms in my new home. The company did a fabulous job on this renovation from start to finish.

- the company was very professional during the design phase and made it very clear what was involved in the project
- the project started and ended on time - and more or less on budget (any cost overruns were explained and relatively minor - and could not have really been foreseen at the design stage. I would recommend that anyone has a bit of a contingency budget for these type of things).
- I lived in my house throughout the renovation, and therefore saw first hand a lot of the work taking place. And one of the best things about Elite Construction is the people who work for the company - either directly or as contractors. They were incredibly professional, and very friendly and helpful
- Most importantly, my family and I love the end result. We have 2 new bathrooms that are exactly how we had imagined them on the drawing board.

Overall I would definitely recommend Elite Construction for any medium to large renovation.
