Basement renovation

I can't say enough good things about Chris and the work he does. From the start he demonstrated a willingness to go above and beyond to ensure we were happy. He was friendly and kept us informed throughout the entire project. He was always available to answer questions and he did it all at an affordable price!

On top of that, all of Chris' work was flawless. You can tell he takes pride in what he does. He always kept things as clean as possible while the reno was taking place.

We're very happy with the end result and would recommend Aephli Contracting to anyone!

Basement Renovation

From flooring, to framing, to wiring, to plumbing, and wallboard, Aephli did a wonderful job in a challenging space.

I always felt Chris was ready and eager to do quality work. He guided me through the process and worked with me to customize the finished product to my specifications.

All work was certified, especially electrical, and I had the sense that Chris and the team were ready to go above and beyond. Tasks like arranging my garage for optimal use and returning it to normal afterward, hanging a TV, and such were done out of love for the finished product. Product allocations were top notch and met the budget we set at the beginning of the project - variances were clearly articulated and in a timely manner, so I could choose from various options.

Thanks to Chris and the team - you have created a paradise for me to enjoy in the cold winter months, and indeed all year round.

Ceiling Repair and Paint

Chris was fantastic from start to finish. After we decided to install pot lights, we brought him in to quote the ceiling repairs and paint. Chris was on time for each and every visit and extremely knowledgeable - we even followed his advice on pot light placements. The repair work turned out perfect, you would never know that we had a 13' hole in our celling with several other spot holes! Very professional and friendly, on time and on budget, I would both recommend and use his service again. Thank you Chris.

Staircase and basement

Aephli contracting did an amazing job refinishing my stairs and framing/drywalling/flooring a portion of the basement.

Chris offered fantastic suggestions and in the end it came in at a reasonable price.

Highly recommend

Ceiling and wall repairs

Chris @ Aephli Contracting came to the rescue when we had a roof leak. He replaced the whole bedroom ceiling and also another area in the kitchen that required the drywall to be replaced. It was done to perfection in minimal time and disruption.
Thank you!

Basement renovation for legal rental apartment

I'm going to keep the 10/10 party going for AEPHLI and their job transforming our unfinished walkout basement into a great legal apartment, which we're currently renting out to a happy tenant! All the 10s may seem weird and I was skeptical too but these guys deserve it. There are a lot of bad contractors out there, and many satisfactory ones who do the bare minimum, so relatively speaking Chris and Brad are exceptional!

I'll get some of the minor hiccups out of the way: The project was completed later than promised and it did go slightly over budget. But when you're building and designing a completely unfinished basement apartment that's to-code, it can take longer than expected with the city and involve unexpected costs, so it's forgivable considering how great the apartment turned out.

Major points scored for:
Communication - For me and my wife, communication was very important going in. And Chris was constantly in touch and filled us in on everything. He was also accessible and responded to questions/concerns right away by text. There was also no confusion on progress or timelines.
Focus - Chris and his brother only focus on one project at a time, which was an important factor for us, because they're devoted to your needs and not distracted by other priorities.
Thorough - Chris was great at explaining everything. Very detailed and did not cut any corners. Took the time needed to get the job done.
Finished product - It was exactly what we wanted. It was completed as promised. Clean, modern-looking apartment. Many compliments from everyone that came through.
Cost - We interviewed many contractors. AELPHI's quote was fair and on the lower end of the spectrum. Great value, in my opinion.

So would I recommend them... absolutely, yes. If you're not sure, do your homework and interview as many contractors as it takes until you're comfortable.

Basement

We recently completed a major design and build project in our 1460 sq.ft basement using Aephli contracting and we must say we are extremely satisfied with the results. We had pretty good idea about what we wanted but had no idea how much better it would turn out due to efforts of team at Aephli contracting. We were looking at one stop design and build solution. After our first meeting with Chris, the owner at Aephli contracting, we knew we found the right person for the job. Now I can say confidently that Chris has executed our vision of the basement to the T. His attention to detail is spectacular, not a single corner missed out on. With a 15 months old at home, he ensured that noise levels would not bother us and always informed in advance if there was going to be extreme noise. The job site was kept crystal clean every single day.
Lastly Chris is not only a great contractor but also a very good human being.
Thanks Chris, you did amazing work for us!!!
Chris, please thank the team at AEPHLI CONTRACTING on our behalf.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!!!
