renovation

Will try to overcharge you. TERRIBLE customer service. Look elsewhere for your renovation needs. Rating speaks for itself. Pick a contractor with 90% rating. Try to find a contractor that is willing to work with you.

Parging Work

Had this company do some parging work on my house in 2010. Was told the work would last at least 10 years. The very next summer the parging was cracking and dropping off the house in pieces. Called the company to report it. Was told he would come by to review and repair. Never did hear back. An unfortunate and costly experience.

Fix Deck

Our deck posts completely lifted over the winter with interlock paving underneath. Jim and his crew supported the deck, dug new holes, fix and leveled the deck, replace and refitted all the interlock, clean up completely. Jim is reliable, courteous, and knows what he is doing. I can always count on Jim and his crew to give the best job and quick results. Thank you Jim.

Roof Cocking & Downspout Install

In 2010, We had Jim install a second downspout from our upper roof to lower roof and down away from house! The build of our house didn’t put adequate drainage on our home, so I hired Jim to add a second downspout from both roofs of my home. Thankfully Jim notice there was cocking needed on the flashing of the roof and we had him repair that as well. We have referred him numerous times to our friends and family. So if you have any type of renovation or repair give him a call…he’s a professional!!

Painting, ceiling repair, Flooring

Jim Nelson is a real professional. His work is excellent, his communication with us was outstanding and he knew how to do anything contractor related. The paint was perfect, Jim is skilled with painting. Jim replaced some floors in 2 rooms and the rooms looked great. He also fixed a damaged popcorn ceiling and the ceiling looked brand new when he was done. Jim provided us with suggestions that were well received and the work was second to none. I would highly recommend Jim for any general contract work or painting.

Sunroom Renovation

After a general contractor walked off a job before Christmas 2009, leaving his tools behind and my sunroom with just the framing, windows, insulation and drafts, I was under a great deal of stress! The house was supposed to have been put up for sale in January, 2010. I was referred to Jim Nelson by a contact who knew of Jim's work. Even though Jim was extremely busy, he found the time to fit my project in. Jim took over the job and also put in his own personal time to complete the project. Jim kept in contact to ensure I was satisfied with the job and to put me at ease knowing the job was getting done. The house went up for sale, and the sunroom was a big hit with all of the real estate agents and clients. Needless to say, I was impressed and have recommended Jim for my real estate agent to refer and I would highly recommend Jim to work on any of your projects.

Company Response

My business specializes in managing situations like KLP describes above. It makes it a greater personal achievement to see stressful emotions dissolve after taking ownership of the problem and providing immediate results. We prefer to start the projects at step one to avoid the stresses KLP went through. Quality workmanship, fair pricing and, customer satisfaction is what we deliver. Thanks again KLP!
