“In summary, Talon gave us a high-quality product, on time and at a fair price. They are honest, friendly, easy to talk with and true to their word as reflected in their “Bill of Rights” and “Code of Conduct” (see website). They say what they will do and do what they say.
As empty-nesters advancing in age, we looked to make our two-story house more readily accessible. This meant bringing the master bedroom downstairs and the food pantry upstairs from the basement in order that all our activity would be on the first floor. Through remodeling and putting an addition on the house, we felt our needs could be met. And looking to the future, the new space should include design elements compatible with an in-law suite, such as exterior access. We presented our general requirements to three local established building contractors. Talon Construction was an easy choice given the initial detail gathered from us and the thorough proposal they presented.
Our first encounter with Talon demonstrated the importance of a “Design-Build” concept. We discussed many of our and their ideas and viewed appropriate examples from their projects. In fact, one photo of his/her vanity with a vertical cabinet on the countertop was incorporated in our bathroom. It was clear that more effort invested upfront increased the likelihood the final product would be what we wanted. It was a refreshing difference in attitude, not the usual “I know what you want, trust me”. The design process went through stages, involving us as little or as much as we wanted; we preferred the latter. Designer Brian communicated well with us throughout the maturation of the design. He included 3D-CAD presentations along the way which was very important for us to “see” exactly what we would get at completion to ensure our satisfaction. Blueprints are sometimes hard to visualize the final product. It worked!
All tradesmen, both Talon employees, and sub-contractors were excellent workers. They were efficient, respectful of our time and property, provided high-quality results and attention to the small details, too. For example, if a piece of lumber wasn’t quite right, it was set aside. Field Supervisor Hutch was an excellent communicator of what to expect each week, important since we were living in the rest of the house during construction. He kept the project moving on schedule, getting the various trades on-site when needed and seeing materials deliveries arrived promptly. When issues arose, he responded quickly and consulted us if there were impacts on the schedule or field adjustments needed in the design.
The new addition blended perfectly with the rest of the house as if it were part of the original construction. Many neighbors commented on how wonderful it looked. Others said they really liked the interior design and quality of the result. Most importantly, the project Talon completed for us achieved our goal and we are thoroughly enjoying the result. We have and will recommend this company to anyone who needs a job done well.”

“Talon just completed remodeling of our kitchen, laundry room and powder room, About 5 years ago they remodeled our master bath. They worked with us from design to completion and ensured we were completely satisfied at every step in the process. The quality of the work by the Talon Team and the Subcontractors was outstanding. The attention to every detail by the Talon craftsman and I sincerely mean craftsman, and their subcontractors was amazing, without compromise and at a fair price. Every member of the Team was a pleasure to work with, truly cared and was proud of the quality of their work. I would not hesitate to work with them again.”

“We loved working with Talon for our kitchen and sunroom renovation. From the start to the end of the project we worked with the same few folks (Val, Eddie, Dave, Ed) who were great and helped us tremendously through our first experience with the renovation. The informal estimate of possible scope, cost, and timing from the very first day were incredibly precise and thoughtful. All sub company’s we’re trusted, high quality. I think it’s their motto, but the results did make us love our house again.”

“We engaged Talon to remodel our kitchen, main floor living space and a portion of upstairs hall/foyer.

From the start, our relationship was great. Paul did a great job setting realistic expectations and ensuring we understood the burden of remodeling. Brian was awesome in design. Paul did a great job scoping and ensuring we understood full contract details.

Our crew… we cannot say enough! Everyone from Talon was professional, courteous and went out of their way to minimize remodeling disruption. Every day wrapped up with job site clean-up, minimizing dust/dirt from ending up in other parts of the house. To say the crew cares about their customers is an understatement. Early in our project, there was lumber in our driveway over the weekend. Saturday looked like rain so I moved the lumber into the garage. On Monday, one crew member asked how it got into the garage because he came by Saturday to move it inside (on his own time). That was a testament to how much Talon crew members care about their clients.

Workmanship pride was extremely prevalent. We had a very open and transparent relationship. Nothing was complete until we were happy with it. Vendors were held to the same standards as Talon employees. Hutch did a great job managing vendors to ensure work was done in the sequence that kept our project moving. Even with some added change orders, the crew finished about a week early.

When the project finished, Ed came out to review work, provided information on warranty, and reassured us that if we found anything after the project, they’d be back to fix it.

Talon will not be your cheapest bid, but we believe in the adage, “you get what you pay for.” The value in crew professionalism, workmanship, and increased value in our home justified the cost. A key indicator of a happy customer is a return customer or one willing to give a recommendation. In our case, it’s both. We’ll use Talon again and without question, we recommend Talon to anyone looking for top-notch workmanship in any remodeling projects.”

“We had Talon Construction build a fireplace surround, mantle, hearth, cabinets and built-in bookshelves in our basement. It was a small job for them but they never treated it that way. All we did was send them some ideas of what we wanted and said, “Do that”. And they delivered. The guys were professional, efficient, clean and prompt. They were also patient with us as we made some last minute changes and alterations. I’d highly recommend Talon for any job you need, big or small.”
