I would like to start by saying, without hesitation, that I highly recommend Elite Construction and Renovations for ANY project in your home.
The task: Gut and reconfigure the basement (including a new bathroom) and complete gut and reno of existing 2nd floor bathroom – all in a fairly old upper Beach home. Two stages of the job were required in order to allow for at least one working bathroom during renovation.
After interviewing a few contractors I was very comfortable with my decision to hire Elite. They set a very specific schedule, protected my floors and walls and got to work. Their work came to an abrupt halt when they discovered a rather serious foundation problem during the initial days of gutting the basement. The foundation repair was immediately necessary and was going to put the job back 3 weeks. Even knowing it would set the job back so far Elite never hesitated to advise me of the issue. (Please realize, if they go three weeks over in my job, it potentially means 3 weeks they don’t have generating business elsewhere. It is a known fact that some contractors won’t ‘notice’ the issue and ‘pave right over it’ for this reason.) Elite’s concern over my home and their obvious determination, dedication and care in the process of making it safe again was so impressive. Incredibly, the whole ordeal proved to be minor stress for us. Elite did ALL of the leg-work interviewing and bringing in the necessary experts to rectify the problem and then they oversaw it through those weeks to a successful completion. Very comforting!
Once back on ‘the job’, everything went ahead full steam. Being an old house there proved to be many more obstacles that continually set the job back a day or two. Never mind - Elite were always so pleasant and accommodating and PROFESSIONAL! They just plowed through the problems and fixed them. Yes, minor mistakes happened along the way as well. No worries there either as Elite always corrected anything to 110%! Again, so comforting and stress-relieving.
The original price quoted was adhered to - the only additional costs were through changes made to the original scope. These ‘change orders’ were offered at a very reasonable price to us and were executed with Elite’s consistent attention to detail. You get what you pay for (and more!) when you work with Elite!
We are now at the end of the renovation and absolutely delighted with each and every detail. The efforts put forth by Jay and his extraordinary team were exceptional. I am so thrilled with my new home! My thanks go out to each and every one of the Elite team. It was my absolute pleasure to welcome any of the crew into my home each day. Such polite and friendly people! Thank you Jay, Adam, Paul, Jeff, Jennifer, Jill, Chris, Keith, Rico, Graham, Lloyd, Decklin, Chris and crew, Dave and Peter and Harley!, Jack and crew, Ben and crew, John and crew, Jason, all the foundation teams…the list may go on. I am so grateful to each and every one of you for your contribution to this project.
It is in anyone's best interest to consider Elite for their renovation projects. Elite is the best of the best! Congratulations Jay McDonald and your Elite team on a job superbly done!
