Elite Select a Division 509-545-3975

Thank you to the entire team at Elite Construction & Development for a job very well done!
Our project manager David and his crew were there with us every step of the way during our remodel of
two adjacent small bedrooms into one large master bedroom suite with a new wheelchair-accessible
bathroom. Even though we had a solid plan at the beginning, there were several instances during this
project where we had to re-think a few things to allow for improved wheelchair access. We learned that
while a design may look great on paper, when you actually have the opportunity to be in the physical space,
things might not always work out exactly as planned. Throughout everything, David and the crew were
patient with us and understanding of the situation and the specials needs of a wheelchair user.
Each and every one of Elite’s workers was courteous, respectful, helpful, and thoroughly knowledgeable
and skilled. They were always quick to offer up advice, suggestions, or alternate solutions that we probably
would not have thought of otherwise. At the end of each day, the work area was always cleaned up and
tools were put away.

Just to give an extra “Thank You” to the workers who spent the most time in our home:

Eddie was our main guy during the initial stages of tearing down the old and framing in the new
space. He was cheerful, outgoing, hard-working, and never too busy to answer any questions we
had. He always made sure to ask us exactly what we wanted, and if we weren’t sure, his
suggestions were always helpful and appreciated.

Betto did a fantastic job with the drywall and per our request, his custom texture application for the
walls and ceilings provided the exact look we had in mind!

For all the tile work and finishing installation, Bernardo was our guy. All the extra time and extra
effort he spent on the tile work for our shower, with strict attention to the tiniest detail, resulted in
a true work of art! It was such a pleasure having Bernardo work in our home and we are so
appreciative of all his hard work and exceptional craftsmanship!

Every day, sometimes several times a day, “Little” Trini would stop by to deliver necessary tools,
parts, or equipment, and every day, his wonderful personality and eagerness to help out were
always appreciated – especially when we were really stressed out!

David did a fantastic job for us from beginning to end. We were always kept informed of timelines for each
stage of the process and of what to expect for the upcoming week. Always professional, always dependable,
and always easy to communicate with, he kept the work schedule and the budget right on track.
When all the hard work was done, we ended up with a bedroom and bathroom suite that was significantly
nicer than what we thought our budget would allow for. We are so very pleased with the end result!
Without reservation, we highly recommend Elite Construction & Development for any home remodel or any
other type of construction project! Trini and David have created a great company based on honesty, integrity,
dependability and hard work, and it truly shows in everything they do. Keep up the wonderful work!

Once again we are extremely pleased with the result. Beck & I were just saying it looks better than new and without a doubt is superior to what we would have done – the guys did an OUTSTANDING Job in all respects. Once again we are impressed with the attention detail in the finished project.

As company owners, Trini and David are very professional and customer oriented. Their bid was timely, thorough, and realistic. All contractual obligations were fulfilled to the letter. Without question, their number one priority is customer satisfaction down to the smallest detail. They listen as well as offer creative ideas and solutions. Either one or both of them were on the jobsite daily. If you have the opportunity to work with Fidel, he is the epitome of an “old world” craftsman.

Their crew was efficient, polite and trustworthy to have around and in our home for several months. The job site was clean at the end of each work day, as promised. Construction debris was hauled away on a daily basis.

Without reservation, we highly recommend them for your building or remodeling needs.

David and Linda Berg

You have been a WONDERFUL group of guys to work with. We can’t even imagine having another contractor help us with the remodeling of our home. Your quality of work and honesty is superb!!

Your being on time was greatly appreciated. We will have you again and again until our re-model is completed. Thanks a bunch and hope to see you soon!

I just wanted you to know what a wonderful job your carpenters and roofers have done repairing our garage. It looks wonderful. And Luis has been an outstanding project manager. Everything has gone so quickly.

The electrician was out Monday afternoon, and said he would have to wait for Benton PUD to come out and mark where the existing electrical lines are under the driveway. The Benton PUD guy came out this morning and has everything marked. So we just need the excavation for the lines and his work in the garage.

Thank you and your crew for the great work.

Andrea Weber

Not to repeat myself, but I do want you to know that Luis did an outstanding job as the project manager. He had all the workers on time, and on task. And he always showed up every day to check things out and make sure all was going well. I believe he now only came in on budget, but he beat his original schedule.

We are totally satisfied with all the work, and the biggest part was Luis getting everything in place so there were no delays.

We will definitely keep you in mind for any future work we may need. Congratulations on an outstanding Team Elite!!

If you are considering a major roofing project, I can highly recommend the services of Elite Construction & Development. When I volunteered to be in charge of the re-roofing and repairs for our apartment complex, I had trepidation and was concerned that this would be my worst nightmare revisited, but then I met Trini Garibay through a chance referral! I was very impressed with Elite. The contractor came immediately and addressed the situation. Our complex suffered severe damage to a high wind storm and left us in a difficult situation. His presentation, attention to detail, and his roofing knowledge made my job with the insurance companies go smoothly, leaving me very prepared. It was these traits, along with his impeccable references, that made us decide to award the contract to him and we have not been sorry. My roofs were completed not only on time but early!

Under the direction of Trini Garibay and David Magana, the roofing project of 28 buildings: Eight (8) complete reroofs and Twenty (20) building roof repairs went smoothly, expertly, with total attention to detail. As well, his crew operated in a DEPENDABLE and PROFESSIONAL manner in all regards, which included ongoing clean-up and communication to my complete satisfaction.

After several bids prior to Elite, it was refreshing to connect with dependable and professional organization that kept all commitments, and stood by their workmanship with attentive follow-up. Elite Construction & Development came highly recommended to me and I could not be more pleased. I would like to further pass on that wonderful recommendation to you.

You will be satisfied with your decision to contract with Elite Construction & Development.

WOW!!!

That is the best way I can describe my experience with Elite Construction & Development. Trini, David and their crew were punctual, efficient, tidy and a pleasure to deal with.

Trini was exceptionally flexible with this project. The bank branch had not had a major update in over 40 years and it showed. This was a major renovation and during which, we needed to be able to serve our customers. Trini quickly suggested that to save time and money, he would have his contractors and crew work on weekends, thus saving set up and clean up time and allowing for more work time.

We updated everything, the 30 year old carpet, added ceramic tile to the lobby, painted everything, installed new offices, removed over 55 aging light fixtures and replaced with only 32 higher efficient units, and completely removed and replaced the ceiling grid.

Four days before my open house showing off the finished project, we discovered there was a leak in the ceiling, destroying the wall board, paint and ceiling tiles. Within hours, Trini had his crew here to assess the situation, provide solutions and make repairs. If I didn’t know where the damage was, I wouldn’t be able to tell.

I highly recommend Trinidad Garibay, David Magana and Elite Construction & Development to anyone that’s looking for a dependable and honest contractor.

Elite Construction & Development recently completed a large commercial project for us on a vacant acre city lot in Richland, WA boarded by a medical facility on one side and a residential neighborhood on the other. The project consisted of 6 rental homes on a court yard with the entire corresponding infrastructure required.

Without the slightest reservations my wife and I can say that working with Elite Construction & Development was absolutely wonderful. Trini’s ability to negotiate and accurately estimate the project, Jaime’s understanding of the paperwork and then David’s careful assessment on how to best tackle the project with minimum disruption to the surrounding neighborhood and then have it all executed with total professionalism was beyond anything we could have imagined.

Their sense of ethics and fairness was just as impressive as their expertise. The project came in on time and budget.

I have been in the construction business for 37 years becoming, some what callous and hard to impress until I met Trini and David. Their honesty and sincerity in dealing with us, along with good value for the money philosophy was impressive.

Thank You Elite Construction & Development for a breath of fresh air!
