“Talon construction did two projects for me and my wife. First, we were not sure who they were and had not worked with them before so we gave them a small project in the house. It was the removal of an old fireplace and installation of a storage cabinet. They did a very professional, clean and efficient job.

Next, we decided to do a major addition to our house. What started as a screened in sunroom that became an octagon sunroom with a coppola and four-season construction. We worked with an architect to design the building and then put the work out to bid. Talon’s bid was in the middle of the prices we got. Because the project was so complicated we were very concerned. We choose Talon because of the people. Specifically Bob and Dave. Bob tends to work in the sales area (though he can swing a hammer) and Dave tends to do the delivery (I’ve seen him with several hammers).

The project kicked off on time and was an absolute pleasure to see come together. Specifically, the employees they brought to the site were incredibly professional and very good at what they did. Talon also works with subcontractors on various parts of the job and seems to have found very solid people. They all worked as a single team as far as I could tell. Frankly, I don’t think Talon would let monkeys or anyone else, not top notch screw up their reputation.

To cut to the chase – Talon is a top flight firm. I get nothing for this review and have no reason to say anything but the truth. We need to know who the good guys are and keep them in business. I am happy to provide details or comments to anyone who wants to know. Chris Hodges iamchrishodges@yahoo.com

Some facts:

Project finished on time, under budget, to spec. No disruptions, no complaints, no delinquencies. We got what we paid for intangibles and more than we paid for in the intangibles of trust and confidence.”

“I just wanted to tell you both again how thrilled we are with the new addition to our house, your attention to detail, and how easy it has been to work with you. We’ve had three construction projects at the house; this was by far the largest and yet the most painless. I attribute that both to the guidance we had from Will and to Talon’s professionalism.”

“I just wanted to thank you again for the great job you and your crew did with our basement. We’re very pleased with the way it turned out and it’s been a big hit with the boys and their friends. I really appreciate how well-organized and efficient everything was under your guidance, from working with the vendors to knowing about the next steps/processes – it was all much easier than anticipated. Thanks also for the paint suggestions and for painting on your days off.”

“Talon Construction Inc. is one of the greatest construction companies in the area. We are fortunate to have a construction company of their caliber available to us in the Washington DC Metropolitan area. My husband and I came to know Talon at a time of real crisis.  While on vacation approximately 80% of our home was destroyed. A toilet fill-valve broke and many thousands of water ( WSSC estimated approximately 58,000 gallons) flowed through our home over a 10 day period. Talon came to our rescue.

They under-bid another company by $75,000; their expertise in dealing with home owner’s insurance was extensive. An agreement with the insurance company was reached in a reasonable amount of time. Their workers from the top down were top-notch professionals and came highly recommended. They did an excellent job and they took pride in their work. No one could have asked for more of them. They worked for us over an 8 month period and we came to know them as a family.

At our home, the Talon Team remodeled bathrooms, bedrooms, re-did the entire main level that included our kitchen, dining room and living room. We were very pleased with all of the work they did and would not hesitate to hire them again in the future. They possess something in this day and age that rarely exists – INTEGRITY! From the bottom of our hearts, we say “Thank you Talon for all you did for us and for rebuilding our lives!”

“I have been working with Talon for many years on many projects. I truly cannot say enough about Talon as a whole. They just do things right. From initial concepts to estimates and then construction you never have to wonder about quality. Their communication is thorough and consistent throughout the entire process. Additionally, and this is rare, at no time were there any financial surprises or shadiness – just integrity throughout.

Bottom line, I cannot entrust using any other firm for my projects. I am a Talon fan.”
