What our customer says about our work


Carol – Nov (repeat) 

What was it – Extension – Covered deck to make living and kitchen, and deck and patio to the back of house

“ So approached Steve with this crazy idea of closing in a balcony that had stairs, removing a load-bearing wall and building a deck at the back with a roof. Steve liked the idea, through a few of his own ideas in too. Got the plans drawn up, and away we went. Once again Elite has really outdone themselves, with what it looked like to what it is now. Plus this was a 1940’s house, everything had to match to the existing. Job well done.”

 Ryan – Aug 2018

 What was it – Renovation – Gutted completely the house, and redid – bathrooms, bedrooms, living, family, dining, 3 decks, 3 patios

” To be fair, Steve wasn’t the cheapest, but his professionalism at the site visit, a referral from a mate (Ben see below) and he knew what he was talking about made the choice really easy, as I would know as I’m a former chippy myself. And being that a chippy, I was nosey one at that, but Steve and his team didn’t mind, in fact, Steve liaised with me every morning (for 4 months), and told me what he was going to get done each day, and what he plans to get done by the end of each week” extremely happy with the finished detail (which is the most important part) of all the work’s you did mate. Hat’s off to you and your tradesman.

 Vicky – May 2017

What was it – Extension – Master bedroom with ensuite, WIR and massive living area, with a deck and covered area

“Ladies! If you want to save money, pick up a sledgehammer, and start sledgehammering away!! Steve will even tell you what you can and can’t remove, and helps in any way of keeping the costs down for you, whether it’s providing your own trades, he doesn’t mind.

You and your team have made our new extension a great one, providing is with much-needed space at a fair and reasonable price, on a budget and on schedule.  I feel that Steve and his team were by far the most professional builders I’ve had the pleasure to deal with. From the time Steve attended to provide us with a quote, right through to completion.

 Eric – Aug – 2017

 What was it – Extension – 2 bedrooms, family room, and laundry

“” When Steve came to the site visit, he was well presented, had a set of plans in one hand, and a list of questions in the other, now that to me, tells me that I was dealing with a professional, and he was the one that was going to do the works too. He wasn’t just another sales rep that promises you everything, and you never hear on him again when the job starts or goes pear shape. Steve, on the other hand, had promised me a lot of things that I wanted, and he delivered and more. He also educates you in the building and site visit stages, so you know what’s going on, as I had no idea what was involved.

Marc – April 2017

 What was it – Bathroom reno

“” Communicated very well, was never unsure what was going on. Steve and his tradies were all very friendly and helpful with my numerous questions.”

 Geoff – Feb – 2016

What was it – Extension – Another living area

“Really happy with the job that Steve and his team have done. The way he matched in new with old, you can’t tell at all, and now I have a massive living area, with a fantastic view. Job well done”

Anton – Jan 2016

What was it – Extension – Another living area

“Found them on Service seek, and with 5 to choose from it was hard, but with how Elite write’s out your quote, which outlines everything to do with the job, it was a no brainer to go with them. Their price was in the middle range, but there were no hidden costs anyway, unlike other quotes when I only got – labor, materials, and GST cost, it didn’t show me anything. Overall, I’m delighted with the work that is done”

 Carol – Jan 2016

 What was it – Conversion – spare room into an ensuite

“” Was about to go with another tradesman, but at the minute was recommended by a friend of mine that Elite Homes did bathrooms. They came out when a time suited me, took down my information, got back to me within a week. Their price was great, the tradesmen that Elite uses were fantastic. They did a brilliant job with the budget I had. Will use Steve and his team again for sure. “”

Ben from Bardon, VIC – Dec 2016

 What was it – Renovation (build under house) – master with ensuite, Family room, study, 2 deck

“Extremely happy with how the renovations turned out, fast and to the specifications I wanted. I would happily recommend Steve from Elite Homes and Renovations.”

Carly Tobin – Nov 2015

 What was it – Extension on poles – Master with ensuite, WIR and hallway

“”Elite Homes and Renovations have just finished building an extension on our home including main bedroom, ensuite and walk-in-robe and we could not be happier with the entire process and the final product. Steve’s quote was more thorough and his price more competitive than another other quotes received. During the building stage Steve and Peter were very efficient and organised all the trades, making it a stress free process. Both Steve and Peter were very friendly and approachable and happily answered any questions we had. Most importantly the build was finished in the desired time frame and also did not exceed the quoted price. Overall we are so happy we found Elite and will be recommending them to everyone we know. Thanks again, Carly and Danny””

Larisa from Belmont, VIC – Sep 2015 

What was it – Double garage conversion, Double carport and Patio

“We have well and truly been impressed with the quality of workmanship for our renovation this year – 2013. Steve was in-charge of a complete double garage conversion, building an attached double carport including concrete slab extension and a new alfresco roof. Once the council paperwork had been completed Steve moved through all of the various projects with technical expertise and always acted in an efficient and timely manner. I have to also strongly point out that his pricing was very competitive when we were getting quotes for the projects and therefore we were able to get more things done in a short space of time due to his pricing –something that was hugely helpful. He was always accessible by phone and therefore well communicated with his updates – any things that cropped up along the way that were out of schedule – were easily explained. We found him to be very patient and professional and would have no hesitation in recommending him to any potential new client. We really didn’t know Steve prior to contacting Service Seeking.Com and usually would make a decision based on a personal referral, however on this occasion we made the right choice and are very grateful for the work that he has done.” Regards Dean & Larisa at Tingalpa.”

Brent from Riverhills, VIC – Aug 2015 

What was it – Double garage conversion and Patio

“My wife and I are so happy with the extension completed by Steve and Elite Homes and Renovations. We can’t stop raving about how fantastic it looks. From the moment Steve contacted us, he was extremely professional, thorough and understanding of our needs including design, budget and timing. The quote process was easy and efficient, and he was the most competitive by far. The assurances Steve gave us bathed us in confidence that he takes pride in his work and wouldn’t be happy until we were. The design and council approval phase was managed solely by Steve from start to finish and he kept us abreast of all updates so we had a firm estimation of start times. Even dealing with rain delays, Steve always ensured we were provided with updates and he was always contactable. The work itself was completed in the time frame specified to a very high standard. Its refreshing to work with someone who takes so much pride in the work he produces and really has the clients best interest a heart. Not only did Steve build our extension, he project managed the entire build and coordinated the secondary trades. We found all the tradesman very easy to deal with and happy with the work they completed. Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve and Elite Homes and Renovations. In fact, we are so happy with the work completed, we are getting Steve back to do some additional work in the new year. Once again, thanks to Elite Homes and Renovations for providing us with our dream house extension…”

 Tony from Sinnamon Park – Sep 2015

“Steve and his team did an awesome job with the patio. Was very patience with me.”

Petro from Fortitude Valley, VIC – Sep 2015

“Steve and his team did what I thought was impossible and that was to remove a 4X2.4 commercial spa from my shop (which was on a second level) on a busy street. Not only did he orgainse and control 6 trades (14 people) in one day, but it had to be done in 1 hour on a Saturday. He also converted the area where the spa plus the shop into a beautiful massage parlor that he designed. Thanks Steve and his team and the awesome job done.”

 Lee from Tingalpa, VIC – Aug 2015

Wendy from Chapel Hill, VIC – Jun 2014 

“Thank you Steve for building our beautiful deck. It has improved our home dramatically and we absolutely love the new space. We can highly recommend Steve, his price was one of the best, the quality of work was of a very high standard and he delivered on everything. The work started on the promised date and was completed a few days early. We would definitely use his services again without hesitation.”

Sandra from Ashmore City, VIC – May 2014

“Steve did a fantastic job with our deck, reliable, efficient and cost effective, attention to detail. Would recommend him.”

 Chris from Salisbury, VIC – Mar 2014

“I had no idea what I wanted, but when Steve came to the site and gave me a number of ideas and showed previous work of these ideas, we came to a conclusion that I was after an expensive deck/roof, but Steve produced his excellent proposal where it had everything laid out and simplified, I new then that Steve was going to do the job. He wasn’t the most expensive and he wasn’t the cheapest, but his professionalism, when he came to the site (ON TIME mind you) delivered the proposal when he said he would, I new he was going to do an excellent job, and boy did he do that. Thanks Steve!!”

Sarah Edwards –  2014

 Belinda – Dec 2014 

“These guys are amazing!!!! We had some ideas about what we wanted to create with our decks which were a little unusual – Steve and his team took on the challenge and created a spectacular outdoor space for us just like we imagined!! Their workmanship is amazing – a truly skilled team of professionals!! Could not have hoped for more. Price was really good too. Honestly if you are thinking about getting these guys in – do it!! They are sensational!!!!!!”

Vicki from Yeronga, VIC – Nov 2013 

“I was very happy with the new patio roof. I had the old one removed and replaced with an insulated stratco roof. Did the job quickly over 3 days.”

 Melinda and Diane Thompson –  2013 

“This is a letter to express our thanks and gratitude to you both for the wonderful job you did renovating our 8metre deck at the side of our house. Prior to your working on it, our deck had been built by a previous company. Unfortunately our deck was never completed to proper building regulations, it leaked from nearly every point that it was attached to the side of our home. And the stairs, although they came back and redid them – still they remained with unequal rises and treads. It was not until we employed Elite Patio and Renovations that we have finally found a semblance of peace”

 Ann –  2013 

“Would personally like to recommend Elite Patios and Renovations for doing enclosures. The reason being that they were very professional, and delivered a high standard of work. They impressed me with their ability to adapt the planning of the enclosure to my requirement. The cost was very reasonable compared to other companies. Thank you once again”

Elaine Rawlins –  2013

“Thanks to Steve and Peter, who did an excellent job with our extension. They listened to ALL my needs, and were very patient and didn’t push at all”

Joseph Bitar –  2013 

“Elite Homes and Renovations converted my garage into a 2 bedroom self-contained flat. They were patient, with regular updates of the works. There wasn’t a problem they couldn’t solve. Thanks Steve”

Jason and Amber –  2013 

“We all hear stories about builders whose interest is not what is best for the customer, but what is easiest for them to build. We greatly appreciate your constant efforts to help us achieve what was best for us considering design, timing and cost”

 Will –  2013 

“From our first meeting with you through to completion, we felt totally comfortable with your attitude, professionalism and knowledge…We have no hesitation in recommending Elite Patios and Renovations to anyone interested in having a deck or an enclosure done”

 Todd and Linda Gilder –  2013 

“I found Elite Patios and Renovations to be courteous, honest and genuinely interested in my needs, which I found reassuring. We are extremely pleased with the new extension to our house, which includes a bedroom with ensuite and a rumpus room. The finished quality and presentation of the extension exceeded our expectations. The extension blends in very well and looks part of the original house. We therefore have no hesitation in recommending Elite Patios and Renovations to any family considering renovations or extensions to their house”

Kim and Ben –  2012
