Review by in Waterbury, CT
John and his crew were the most professional, honest, and hardworking men we have ever worked with. He works with his customers to accommodate their project and preferences, and will always give his honest opinion. Not only was John a pleasure to work with, but the work itself is extremely high quality. We could not be more satisfied with our new driveway. Highly recommend his services.

Review by Ryan C. in West Haven, CT
Johnny came to my house and we discussed the project that needed to be done and that it was a time sensitive project. He told me if I put a deposit down he would start that following week, so I did. It's been two months and I haven't seen or heard from Johnny since. He might do nice work but he's also a thief. Be careful when dealing with Talos.

Great company ! Could not be happier with thier work. We added on to the original contract and they still were able to accommodate us. As with any good company once they get busy you will have to wait. We waited and it was worth it. Thanks John!

John and his crew were great, from start to finish. They removed an old brick patio, and replaced it with 1.5" Pennsylvania bluestone. In addition to replacing the existing patio, they expanded it to include 3 offshoot walkways (plus my garbage can area & 2 drywalls to bury my gutter lines). At John's suggestion, the entire bluestone work was bordered by granite blocks. He took the time to source from my local granite quarry, so that the borders would match existing stonework around my home (from that same quarry). I thought that doing a granite border would be overdoing it, as I'd never seen this done before. I was wrong. This is how it's done properly. Most importantly, John and his crew were honest, good people, and easy to work with (though at times his crew's English was an impediment - but we worked through it). Regardless, like I said, they were all good people, and very hard workers. At the end of the project (on the last day), there was actually a turn/curve in the main walkway that I thought could be done better. I wasn't happy with this one detail, but you could say it was my fault, as I hadn't previously said anything about it. True to form, and as advertised, John and his crew dug it out and fixed it/re-did it. And he was nice about it to boot. Top notch service. Highly, highly recommended.

Review by in New Haven, CT
This was a massive project and came out fantastic; way beyond my expectations! John & his crew worked hard and the detail is amazing. Completed ahead of schedule and within budget. John was great about changes and special requests. People stop at our home every day to marvel and ask about it. It was the best experience possible for such a large project. I highly recommend Talo's and will use them again!

High quality work - great finished product and very clean. Did exactly what was promised - on time and on budget. We are actually using them for a larger project.

Thanks Talo's Masonry for our beautiful new patio, walkway, and granite steps! We dreamed of doing this for a long time, but it's a big job and we were nervous about who could do it right. Mission accomplished. John & the guys were fast, worked hard, and did a beautiful job! Our patio and steps are stone craftsman works of art, and strong, level, safe and sturdy. John checked with us during the process to make sure they were doing it the way we wanted (the step/platform, paver layout, etc) We'd recommend Talo's highly and use them again any time.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
