Taylor Concepts, Inc. opened its official doors in 1986, though Scott Taylor, President and Owner, really began fixing up homes as a small boy working alongside his father who taught him essential business and construction skills while buying, fixing and reselling homes in the 1970’s. Scott started working for several area General Contractors in his teens and early twenties, before he decided to go solo and build upon the successful relationships he had established in the DC Metro area.
TCI has grown in their offerings through the years: from decks, basements, kitchen and bath remodels, to new residential homes, high-security condo renovations, several commercial offices, residential renovations and additions. And while these remain a staple under our experienced wings, the last 20 years we have found our niche in high-end renovations and additions that call for “Jewel Box” care and detailed craftsmanship. Many of these homes are in the DC and VA historic areas that require excellent relationships with neighbors, local officials, knowledge of unique building materials and resources, challenging access, and creative and innovative solutions to preserve existing structures while collaborating with Owners, Architects and Designers to bring their ideas to modern life. If you dream it, we’ll build it!
We don’t just build homes,
We build relationships.
Given the trust placed in us to manage these one-of-a-kind projects, we take that responsibility very seriously. We are sensitive to the privacy, security, and coordination efforts required working with discerning Homeowners, Building/Engineer personnel, Architects, Designers, Sub-contractors & Vendors. We dedicate our attention to all the moving pieces required to organize project details that run smoothly into a cohesive whole, while delivering exceptional value within our client’s financial framework goals.
We have established solid working relationships with our Sub-contractors & Vendors over the years, who understand our business model and share our values. We honor relationships with each collaborative project team with integrity, transparency, accountability and open communication.
Our dedicated office staff and construction team shares that commitment. We lead with a small but experienced in-house team which allows us to be both flexible and on the front lines of communication with our clients and project team, lending a more personal level of service experience. Many of our employees have been with TCI for over 10 years, and some of our Vendor and Sub-contractor’s relationships span over 20 years.
Throughout our 30+ years in the home improvement business we have never had the need to advertise our services, as all opportunities come through the fruits of our continued relationships with clients, architects and industry associates with their generous referrals. It has been our delight and honor to continue loyal relationships with many of our clients over the years as we’ve renovated their homes to accommodate growing families, updated these same homes years later as children left the nest, and customized their new spaces in downsized retirement and vacation homes.
Scott’s foundational principles for this business have not changed over the years – to provide extraordinary quality craftsmanship, lead with integrity and honesty, and always push the boundaries of excellence. He learned early on that the success of your business is only as good as your foundation.
