Addition Project West of the Trail

When we moved to Sarasota with our two young boys, we were lucky to find a perfect little house in a wonderful neighborhood. But as the years passed, and our boys grew, we unfortunately began to outgrow it. We searched for a larger place to move into, but always came back to the fact that we did not want to leave. So, we made the somewhat daunting decision to renovate and enlarge our existing home and stay put.

As anyone knows who has renovated an older home (ours was built in the 50’s!) it is quite a task to take on. Finding the perfect builder to execute the job was one of the most important tasks we faced. Once again, we got lucky – this time to find Tom Shumway and Talon Home Builders. Tom had been recommended to us by a friend, and had just completed a project for another, so we felt confident that he was going to be capable of the job. But what we didn’t expect was just how personally invested Tom would be in making sure that our home renovation was the best experience possible. I honestly felt that the attention he gave us was the same as if he had been building the home for himself and his family.

Renovations of older homes are always full of surprises, and with each turn (and there were a few!), Tom met the obstacle with calm and capable professionalism. He always took the time to explain what was going on, and was accessible and involved with every aspect of the build.. Alternately, Tom was also great at listening to us and really hearing what we wanted in our new home. Throughout the entire experience, Tom truly went above and beyond what I think most builders would have done. His professionalism, attention to detail, accessibility, and the excellent quality of work all combined to make this experience a great one. Needless to say, the end product is beautiful! We could not be happier! I would highly recommend Tom and Talon Home Builders to anyone looking to renovate, or build something new.

New Construction Siesta Key

If you are looking to build your dream home, you cannot do better than Talon Home Builders!  It was a pleasure working with Tom Shumway on our recent home construction. The project was completed in a timely manner and on budget thanks to his hands on approach. When issues arose Tom was there to see that they were resolved to our satisfaction. Thanks to Talon Home Builders we are now living in a beautiful home that is exactly what we had envisioned. We cannot say enough good things about this experience.

New Construction Barn Home

Tom was willing to take on a very different project for me, while other contractors backed away.  He was enthusiastic about learning an entirely new way of construction and “winging it” as needed.  He was always conscious of my tight budget and really tried to give me what I wanted without breaking the bank.  Furthermore, he was quite innovative in coming up with clever ideas and made sure that his subs met his exacting standards.  My house turned out beautifully!

Sanderling Club Master Bathroom Addition

We asked Tom to manage the renovation of our master bathroom and were very pleased with the whole project.  He kept us on schedule and within our budget.  We were very impressed with the quality and attention to detail that he provided throughout the renovation.  Tom was always available and a good communicator whenever we had questions.


Interior Repairs

When we experienced major water damage to our home and had to tear out our kitchen and hardwood floors, Tom Shumway worked closely with our insurance company and coordinated all of the subs to get us back together again. Tom is experienced, conscientious, reliable, and honest. A true pleasure to work with.

Shingle Roof Replacement

I can not recommend Talon Home Builders enough. I had my house on the market and it became obvious that in order to move it, I would need to replace the roof. Owner Tom Shumway was thoughtful to the challenge of having a house on the market while living somewhere else. Not only did he offer the most competitive price, he expedited the permitting process and had the job completed in two days start to finish.  This was my first time dealing with a roof replacement. Tom was responsive and thoughtful to all my questions, concerns and requests for clarification. I am grateful to Talon Home Builders for their guidance through a challenging situation.
