Classy bathroom reno

Elysha, Nelson and Colin did a great job on our bathroom. The renovations we well done and true to our specifications and needs. They were open to design ideas and didn't shy away from requests or changes that improved our bathroom but resulted in more work. They found ways to solve problems - didn't give up - and made improvements upon our original design that make our bathroom nicer. Elysha hunted for chair rail tile and got what we wanted. What's really unique is their ability to communicate - which is not the norm for most renovators. Easy in-person convos. They responded quickly to emails and requests, no fuss and no rigamarole. We will definitely use them again.

Kitchen Renovation

We are so grateful to Elysha and her amazing team for helping us bring our kitchen renovation project to life! We completed a full kitchen reno plus a number of other smaller house projects including painting, new pot lights, floor varnish, basement floor repair, drywall, etc. What was most amazing about Elysha was her ability to listen to our ideas and help us make them happen. We had a particular style we were looking for and she nailed it. We loved the contractors she had working in our home. Like any major project, there are always bumps along the way. Elysha and her contractors explained things clearly and helped us solve any problem. Elysha continues to be responsive as small questions as things have popped up. Thank you Trifektah!!

Walkout basement

After having a terrible experience by a previous company (lawyers and all) finding Elysha was like finding the holy grail. She was creative, honest, and very clear when it came to timelines and prices. The project went on as expected (with a few surprises that were speculated previously and handled properly). She stayed within the budget we had talked about and even though there were some delays, it was mostly due to weather and they made up for the lost time by working extra hours. I have only good things to say about Elysha and her crew. If you’re looking to do any renovations, look no further. It was such a relief to have someone I trusted dig a walkout in my property. She’s also got the best attitude and great vibe.

A non stop battle

Basically They gutted kitchen-floor-popcorn ceiling-built a drop ceiling and rebuild a half wall- painted a little- had a plumber and an electrician set up according to the plans I provided designed by another designer. Consulted on colour choices- Set tiles and floor prior my new appliances were installed by another team and custom made cabinets arrived and were installed by the cabinet maker.
The job took 7 weeks!

Hi Linda,

Thank you for writing your review.

Its on not only in my company's best interest but also in the interest of my trades to truthfully disclose the reality of this situation.

Just to clarify, the project took just over 6 weeks as per our agreed upon timeline. As you were well informed in the beginning, the project would take approximately 6 weeks from the day we started demolition as per your original contract that you signed. The review was made to sound very nonchalant, but as we both know, there is more to this than what has been stated.

Yes, we did remove the kitchen, removed a wall, removed your flooring, rebuilt a drop ceiling, rebuilt a half wall that you originally asked us to remove, we smoothed out the popcorn ceiling in your entire condo, ran new lines of electrical for your new potlights and dimmer switches you requested mid-project, ran all new electrical lines for your appliances, relocated your thermostat, add new electrical outlets, relocated switches, we scratch coated the kitchen floor and installed new tile, we had to install cork underlay and engineered wood flooring throughout your condo, installed new baseboards and shoe moldling, we had doors to cut down and reinstall due to height changes from your original floor, and paint the kitchen area and installed the backsplash and did all the plumbing connections once the counters were installed. Once the cabinetry was installed (which was delivered a day early) we faced a couple challenges with the cabinetry that were quickly remedied (within a couple days) and still completed on time. The countertop templating and installation was expedited, again, within our schedule and we completed the project 10 days earlier than what was stipulated in the original contract. Aside from the work stated above we did several items for you at no charge. These items included: Dismantling your built in closet and relocating it for you to the opposite side of your room, painting the wall in preparation for the closet, remedying electrical issues you were faced with due the outdated electrical panel we were dealing with, building out the kitchen wall to accommodate an unanticipated plumbing challenge we had to contend with, installing a light fixture you purchased last minute and installing tile at your peninsula, and we also returned your extra wood flooring at no charge to you for our services. On top of all that, I even negotiated a much larger amount that you received via your insurance claim for the flooring replacement as you were originally ill-informed by the insurance adjuster. You were EXTREMELY grateful for that and we even spent lunch together (it happened to be Valentines day) after that meeting! You had also praised our crew for the clean and efficient way they were working. Our crew was courteous, clean and professional the entire project. The entire project was going very well and in a timely manner up until the last two weeks, where you took it upon yourself to contact my trades behind my back and try and arrange to have work done outside of my arranged schedule. You were rude, condescending, aggressive and vulgar, not only to myself, but also to Luis and his crew and even my flooring company. I understand you were also anxious to get back into your home, but your level of inappropriate behaviour both in person and via emails was unnecessary for a mature 60+ year old woman.

The final product turned out beautifully and one of my trades doing work in your home told me how you told him how happy you were. We are not deserving of a 2 out of 10. This is not reflective of the quality of work that was done , the timeline or the pricing, it's clearly a reflection of something else that is out of my control. However, you are entitled to your own opinion, even though its clearly falsified.

If anyone reading this wants further information, please feel free to contact me. I have no qualms about discussing this or disclosing the disrespectful emails received from this client.

I also have the final photos for this project, since Linda had only posted a couple photos from the first few days of demolition.

Kitchen Renovation

Bought my condo a little over 10 years ago and the work in the "brand new" kitchen was done very shoddy and cheap. It has all fallen apart over the last couple of years where even the cabinets started peeling. I had no room to put anything more than I already had--every inch of counter space was taken! I was at my wit's end. I thought about doing an Ikea kitchen but a good friend referred me to Elysha at Trifektah instead. She designed a warm and bright kitchen for me that has been built to last and has added so much value to my place. It's functional in a way that I didn't think was possible for such a small space. I have much, much more storage now! I love my new kitchen. I could not be any happier with their work. Thank you to Elysha and her team for a job well done!

Thank you for your kind words Vince. It was a pleasure collaborating with you both on your project. Your home turned out beautifully and all the personal touches you and your wife incorporated into the space made it all that much more cozy and functional. We look forward to your next renovation soon!

Home renovation

We were looking for a company that was able to provide end to end service. After our initial meeting with Elysha, she designed and priced out two different plans within a week. Her design for our main floor was so different and bold from what we had, we needed a few days to wrap our heads around it but realized that it was the best use of the available space. We decided to have the overall renovation completed in 2 phases: first the main floor and the second floor the following year. Elysha gave us an approximate start date for the first part of the project but a few days before commencing the work, due to complications at their previous project she moved it back by 2 months. This would have impacted us in significant ways, so she offered to start with the second part of the project instead that required different manpower. Looking back, it turned out to be better because we are done with renovations now.
The work provided by Team Trifektah is of high quality, the decision-making process was not overwhelming under Elysha's guidance and they were there for every step of the way. Elysha was very quick to respond to any request. She coordinated times for installations, deliveries etc. She was very clear to communicate what to expect and when.
Our project took months to finish, but we are very pleased with the result. We would highly recommend Elysha and Team Trifektah to anybody.

Condo renovation

We bought a rough looking condo.

Elysha and the team transformed it into a luxury home (ahead of time and on budget) providing a turn-key product, with high quality design, workmanship, attention to detail, etc.
Made finishing choices easy, Elysha was with us every step of the wqy!

Couldn't have asked for more, the real deal ! I'm using them again shortly to update a bathroom.

Queens Quay Renovation Project

We were looking to modernize our condo. However, we do not know where and how to start. Elysha and her team at Trifektah conceived a very beautiful design for the whole place. During the project, Trifektah responded promptly to our further inputs and took great care to ensure that all goes according to plan. We are very satisfied in the way Trifektah handled the project from beginning to the end. Highly recommended.

Kitchen renovation

Hampton Kitchens and the Trifektah team renovated our kitchen including removing the livingroom/diningroom wall and widening the other doorway. We are completely satisfied with the finished work. Elysha is very hands on and readily available for discussion and recommendations and she was invaluable at the tile store helping us decide on floor tile, backsplash and paint colour. She and her team were patient with our queries and open to making minor adjustments as the project proceeded. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Trifektah to our friends/family.

Kitchen Reno, pantry addition, and exterior house painting

The Trifektah team renovated our kitchen (including adding a 'bumpout' for a pantry) and coordinated exterior house painting while we were away on our summer vacation. People thought I was a bit crazy for doing this (renovating while away), but I trusted Elysha intrinsically, and I was right to do so. She and the team took care of everything while we were gone! And her response to questions and requests afterward were so refreshing - she truly wants her clients to be happy!!! I can't wait to use them again!!!
