Elite made our home dreams come true!

Background:
We purchased our home in 2019 knowing it needed a big reno. The home had not been updated since 1986 and desperately needed a complete overhaul.
Selecting a contractor was scary for us it was a big project therefore it was a big financial investment. We were terrified to become a news statistic of another couple who had been taken advantage of by a dishonest contractor.
We interviewed contractors for a year before we found Elite.

Elite - initial impression:
Elite immediately stood out from the rest. The owner Jay was incredibly responsive to our request to meet and discuss our potential project. This seems like a given of course but it was 2021 and COVID meant everyone was renovating and lots of contractors either didnt respond or dropped off during the discussion process.
Our quote from Elite was incredibly detailed and based on our discussions with Elite we could tell their project management and processes were also detailed. We had some contractors basically quote us on a napkin for the same project with little written details on how we would get from A to B.

The project:
Our project consisted of gutting the main floor and second floor. The home was previously a three-bedroom but had been converted by another owner to a two bedroom. We were converting it back to a three bedroom while also adding a powder room and closet on the main floor. We were also taking walls out to make it open concept on the main floor. We also wanted a linen closet added upstairs with a redesign of the bedroom closets and bathroom size.

Timeline:
Elite gave us a timeline of four months to complete the project.

The team:
The Elite team were fabulous to work with. Our site supervisor Michael did a great job and was even in communication with our neighbours so if they had any questions or concerns they knew how to reach him. Our project manager Keith was amazing at keeping us posted on all of the details we needed to know.
In addition to the resources we had assigned to our project we were also given access to Elites project management software that allowed us to see on any given day where their project was, upcoming selections we needed to make for the house or when different milestone payments were due.

The result:
We finished on time and on budget with our project. How many times do you hear people say that?! We are completely delighted with how the project turned out and are so happy to have a home we finally love the look and function of.

Our neighbours had wonderful things to say about how kind and respectful Elite was to them and to the neighborhood.

Check out some of our before and after pictures attached.

Thank you team Elite for making our house dreams come true!

Thanks so much for your review Karen. We're very grateful that you picked us to complete your project. It's amazing to see the before and after pictures and the transformation from the '80's to today. The best part of our job is knowing that people just want to stay home after their reno is complete and that we've made house dreams come true!

Home Renovation

This was my third renovation and this was by far the most positive experience I have had. The entire team made me feel that they cared about this project and my happiness throughout the entire process. Often times contractors are challenging to get in touch with, this was not the case here! Keith (project manager) and Michael (site manager) immediately responded to my concerns and questions and always provided me with detailed answers and solutions. I could not be happier with the very high standard of their work, all the people that they contracted to implement the work and the way I was treated. I felt valued and my home looks fabulous.

Returning clients and happy again!

We engaged Elite for the second major reno of our east end brick house (the remaining floors) after a good experience with the gut reno of our main and second floor in 2015. The scope of this renovation involved some tricky roof and structural work for a third floor addition, and finished as a principal suite. Once again, Elite was on time and on budget. And importantly, incredibly professional and collaborative to work with. The project manager, Keith, was exceptionally well organized. We moved in on our original target contract date, on a pandemic construction project!

Additionally we had a baby during the course of the renovation and they were understanding and accommodating for us to work around some of our dates, all while maintaining schedule.

The overall quality of the work is high. Any areas we wanted addressed or deficiencies have been resolved without issue.

We would happily recommend them and will work with them again for any future renovations.

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.
