I liked pretty much everything about Nelson Exteriors. The supervisor was on the job, and they checked with me, listened to me, and did what I asked them to do. They were very nice. They painted the outside of my house and my kitchen cabinets. I think it was pretty excellent. Some of my windows were painted shut, but they've called me and scheduled to come back and get them open for me. I think that's pretty excellent.
Nelson Exteriors did exterior painting for me. They did great work, and I highly recommend them. They get an A+. I have no complaints.
They were good. They worked hard, and they were fast. The job was painting work on the outside. It was excellent.
They were very efficient, on time, and detail oriented. They were doing interior painting and millwork. The job took them about three days—it was in line with their estimate for how long it would take. I chose Nelson Exteriors because of a personal recommendation. They get an excellent grade from me.
With Nelson Exteriors, everything was perfect. They did exterior painting for the whole house.
They did my gutters, and we had a screened-in deck addition built onto our house that they painted to match the house. They were very professional and did a great job, and the gutters are very high quality. I'll give them high marks—I think they deserve an A. I got them out of Best Pick Reports.
They were quick, and I think they did a good job. Their foreman was a good guy, too. They painted the trim on the windows, the gutters, and the downspouts. They also painted the backside of the house. I'd rate them as an A.
Nelson Exteriors did excellent work. My wife was particular, but they met everything she was interested in. They repainted the back deck after bad paint had been recommended by another company. The deck looks great today. We went through Best Pick Reports, and we identified a minimum of three estimates we wanted; Mr. Nelson's presentation was the most understanding from the homeowner's point of view. Both my wife and I would give them an A.
I ended up going with Nelson Exteriors. They're good. I've used them two other times. They've done interior and exterior painting for me. I like that they're consistent, and they have good workmanship. They're usually in Best Pick Reports. I first used them back in 2007. They're an A+.
They did a good job. They painted the inside of my house in a couple of rooms, and they came back quickly when there were a couple of spots they had to touch up. They jumped back on it and got it done, and they were out of here—A+.
