    Our experience with Talos Masonry was outstanding !!! We had our front and back steps rebuilt, a 30 ft retaining done, and other draining issues resolved. John, is very professional, and we relied on his experience to help us make the best decisions for our needs. Additionally, Talos Masonry has a strong team of hard working individuals that provide quality work while getting the job done quickly. A big thumbs up to John and his team !!

    John responded to my inquiry immediately. He was extremely knowledgeable and willing to work with me on repairing the 18 year-old paver patio around our pool. We discussed several options and decided on the one that was best to suit my needs. The project was started within days and finished in a week in 90 degrees+ heat and humidity. The result was a newly constructed patio. The work was neat and complete and professionally hand crafted. We would recommend John and his crew highly.

    John and his team were fantastic from start to finish! We hired Talo's in May to complete a roughly 20' x 20' bluestone paver patio in our backyard. The estimate process was straightforwardâ John came in person and helped us imagine the design we were hoping for, and then followed-up two days later with another in-person visit to bring multiple stone options for us to choose from. He walked us through every aspect of how to work would be completed, what steps they would need to take in order to ensure the patio was level, drained properly, and achieved the design we hoped for. Our property is on a steep hill and backyard access was difficult, but John and his team made it work! We were anticipating a week to complete the patio but John and his team of six (!) all mobilized to our job and completed it in only three and a half days. And they did it in such great time WITHOUT cutting corners! Every step of the process was done meticulouslyâ the patio is level, it drains properly because John recognized the need to tie it into our existence drainage system around the back of the house to accommodate the slope of our yard. There are no loose stones, and they achieved a beautiful winding curve shape to the patio that we were looking for. The stones are set beautifully, the concrete and sand feel so secure, and the look of the stonework on the single step down from our back door onto the patio is absolutely stunning. We couldn't be happier with how the work turned out, and would recommend Talo's Masonry to anyone looking for a patio or stonework project in the area! In terms of pricing, we shopped around A LOT and ended up with 9 estimates from different companies. Talo's was right in the middle of those estimates for this project, and the materials he used for this are clearly of the quality we would expect for the price pointâ and as stated above the work itself was immaculate!

    John and his team came out to quote our job the same day we inquired, came back quickly to meet with my wife and I with design ideas, and started the project 2 days later. He and his team worked hard and finished the large patio we had built in 3 days. Could not have turned out better and they built the exact patio my wife and I were looking for in our back yard

    They did a beautiful job on my pool retaining wall. It was a huge project but they got it done quickly and the guys all worked so hard. I get so many compliments on the wall now. Talo is very nice and easy to work with.

    5.0 Michael B. West Haven, CT

    Talo's Masonry was superb. The wall came out geogous and the team was outstanding. Workmanship was superior. Would highly recommend

    5.0 Tim M. Barkhamsted, CT

    I have been A do-it-yourself guy forever but with the aging process in effect I have decided to seek some help in home repairs. My on-line research for some masonry work resulted in a few calls in which Talo's Masonry (John) was the only one that left a message. Communication, punctuality, thoroughness, friendliness and quality are a few things that stand out. John and his crew have increased the curb appeal of my residence and I couldn't be happier.

    5.0 Dan Y. Branford, CT

    John gave us an estimate and some design thoughts on replacing a retaining wall and walkway. We liked his point of view. Took a few weeks before they could start, but crew arrived on time and did an excellent job. We replaced rotting timber’s with masonry wall and a bluestone slab walkway with a connected granite one. Neat, professional and excellent job.

    5.0 Thibauld F. West Hartford, CT

    Very happy with the results. John built a beautiful retaining wall for our house. It was done quickly and with attention to details. Our wall looks great. John has been very helpful with his advises and made sure the job was done in a timely manner.
