Called Richard this week as my bathroom was leaking onto my kitchen ceiling once again. He indicated the company was out of business (not surprised) and my so called lifetime warranty was void. Steer clear of this guy and whatever new company manifests!
We hired the Tfin Company last summer to build a large addition to our home, with a custom kitchen and two new bathrooms. We were very happy with the final results. They provided excellent design services to us as well as taking care of all of the drawings and permits we needed for the city's building office.
The job took about four months to finish which was about two weeks earlier than originally scheduled. They were very respectful of our home and we quickly learned that they were all gentlemen that could be trusted. Our house and the yard were kept organized and neat and when they finished they left everything spotless.
Our budget was $300,000 which we told them at the start. They finished our job with everything we wanted for less than $275,000. We found that particularly surprising as our thoughts were that they would charge us up to what we told them our budget was, even more we feared. They are very honest people.
They had all of their work inspected by inspectors from the city and we received written notice that everything passed. They also fixed our porch steps and garden gate free of charge, and we did not even ask them to do so. They are very good people and we are very happy.
We hired TFIN to build our dream home: a 2,800sf four bedroom custom home in Caledon. Not only did they do a terrific job building the place, their work won an architectural competition!
Would we recommend them? Without hesitation, yes. In fact, we have recommended them often to our friends with similar results achieved.
Were we satisfied with the work done? Very professional and very concerned about us and our home. Workmanship is very good, as we had a large amount of custom carpentry and non-standard lighting requirements which all turned out perfectly. They also kept things spotless throughout both projects (I think they hire one young guy as an apprentice and his only job is to keep the worksite clean it seems) and I knew I could trust my belongings to them without any worry. (We weren't around much when they were working.) Kept us posted on progress, and when they encountered challenges, they recommended solutions. A great bunch of guys through and through. I have no complaints there.
Was the project on time? They went beyond adequate. Compared with the other bids we received, this company provided a very detailed written quote. All I could get from the other bids was an estimate, which I know is NOT the same as a quote. (Got burned on that one before!) They were dead on with respect to what they would do for us, how much it would cost, when the project would begin and when it would be completed. On that last point, since our projects were both pretty big, I didn't expect a guaranteed completion date. Nevertheless, they provided me upfront with a production schedule and they stuck to it like glue. They finished our custom home in about four months. We were somewhat surprised that they could finish as quickly as they did, but they did deliver what they said they would. When things slipped, it was because of factors out of their control (i.e. weather, delays in receiving shipped materials we ordered from the US, our dithering, etc.) and somehow they still found a way to make up for some of this lost time.
Did the job come in on budget? Yes. They gave us quotes and stuck to them. We had made several changes along the way and they priced those changes using a written Change Order system. I was walked through the changes each time and asked to sign off on them before the changes would be implemented, so I always felt in charge. The only increases in the budget were due to my requests (well, my wife's requests, but don't tell her I said that!) They were very conscious of our money and I never once felt a money issue with them. They aren't cheap, I can say that. But they are good. And, in the end, we didn't want the cheapest job. I was more concerned with quality, professionalism and honesty, and that's exactly what they delivered, across the board. We wanted something we'd love for years to come because, if something was done cheap but wasn't done right, it would bother us long after we forgot what we paid for it. They executed everything with utmost quality in mind and, in retrospect, at a very fair price.
We would hire TFIN again. I feel like an insider that way, knowing I've found a peach among the lemons in the construction business. I've recommended TFIN to others and each time, I was thanked for sharing them. You won't go wrong with this company, I assure you.
The TFIN Group in a nutshell were great.
We were flooded like a large part of Toronto was and our insurance company suggested getting our own contractor to give us a quote.
The TFIN Group quoted us and informed us of the current OBC Standards and that with the removal of the current basement by code it has to be brought up to standards.
With this information in hand and the quote supplied to us by the TFIN Group we were able to get the value of the quote from the insurance company.
Without TFIN's help, I don't think that we would have received a fraction of the amount as the original adjuster told us that the insurance company was only going to pay for the current content and not bring it up to speed.
Once the money was in place the TFIN crew were assembled and at it within a week of our receiving payment.
After 4 weeks, the paint is drying the kids are playing and were tickled pink with the service and the workmanship.
TFIN helped us to value engineer the space so that we could get more for our money with suggestions and recommendations.
