“The on-site manager was very thorough, and the crew did a perfect job. They cleaned up, and they were all very courteous. They also have a great maintenance program. Overall, they did a really fantastic job. I'd give them an A+. I have already recommended them.”
“We had an excellent experience. Nelson did a great job. They did exterior painting, and there was some lead paint removal involved. I thought Scott Nelson was great and really up-front about what he was going to do. The workers were really nice, very communicative, and efficient. I would grade them as an A.”
“The exterior, including the deck and gutters, was pressure washed and painted. They were very easy to get in touch with. They did what they said they were going to do in a timely fashion. The job that they did was phenomenal—A.”
“They did some painting and some odd repairs, and they changed the siding for the window. I liked them very much. They did very neat work, and they cleaned everything. If the paint dropped on the floor, they cleaned it very well. I would say they would be an A+. They do a good job. I'd highly recommend them to my friends.”
“I'd say Nelson Exteriors is five stars. They did some interior work. They painted my breakroom, and they painted my bedroom and bathroom—basically the whole main level of the house. They were on time. They made sure everything was done right. They had a supervisor that came in and inspected everything before the crew left, and I liked that. I'd give them an A+. I've already recommended them.”
“The person in charge was on-site most of the time, instead of disappearing. I've had them several years before, and the person who was in charge was never there, and the work was a lot sloppier without him. And this guy was totally different this time, and he was also hands-on. He showed people how to do it, and he was very good at doing the work, and not just supervising. They came out, and they pressure washed and painted my house, including my deck. And they repaired a balustrade railing that was crumbling. And they actually came back and took care of spots that they had missed the first time, without any questions—just immediately came and did that. I was very happy about it, because it was hard to get all of the loose parts. You had to see what would happen when it rained and after they painted. So they were good to their word, and they would come back and fix anything that they missed. I would give them an A-. The only thing they haven't done is, they were giving out a warranty, in case I sold my house, but I never got it from them. They did come back and fix it, and they did do what they said they would do. I just never got it in writing, but they might have just forgotten.”
“They did painting, they put a ceiling on our carport, and they replaced a screen. They were friendly and easy to get along with. They do what they say they're going to do, and if you don't like it, they'll come back and fix it. I would say I'd give them an A+.”
“They painted my house. They did what they said they'd do. They came out here and did a good job. I'd give them an A+. It's very likely that I'll recommend them. Actually, I've already recommended them.”
“They pretty much painted the interior of the whole house. They were pretty professional, and they did a great job with the work. I would rate them an A+.”
“They did exterior painting work on the whole house. They're a good service with friendly people. I'd give them an A+ in all areas.”
“They painted our house. They were fast, and they got it all done in three days—by contrast, our neighbor's house must have taken a week or more to get painted. I'd rate them an A+. We have already recommended them.”
“I had a great experience. They did exterior repairs and painting. I'd give them an A+. I already recommended them.”
“I worked with them some time ago. They did some painting, and it was good work. They were excellent, across the board, and with no complaints. I'm likely to recommend them.”
“They did painting work. They did a really good job.”
“They were prompt, they were professional, and they accommodated all the details I'd requested; and they did a great job. They painted the exterior of my home. I'd give them an A.”

“The painting they did is good; my mom says it's good.”
“They did some work in a small powder room and bathroom for us—some painting and replacing of the floor and vanity, things like that. It went smoothly. I'd give them an A.”

“They did painting work. Their customer service was very good. They were prompt. They did everything they said they were going to do. I'd give them an A.”
“They did a good job. They did exterior painting, and then they did some interior painting. They did a good job. They were professional, they got it done, and they did good work. I'd give them an A.”
“I've used them twice. They painted the interior of my upstairs, except for one bedroom. And then I called them back to do a new screened-in porch. They're very professional, and they knew exactly what paint they needed. And time-wise, they told me pretty close to the time of when they would be there and be done. And the estimate was spot-on; it didn't go over or under. I'd give them an A. I didn't have any problems at all. Whenever I get a chance, I tell people if they ever ask about paint, that Nelson Exteriors is who I'd go to.”
“They did painting work. I'd give them an A.”
“They painted the fence. I'll grade it A.”
“I had a very good experience. They did some painting, they re-stained the deck, and they did some pressure washing. They're very professional, and they gave us a price and stuck to it. They showed up on time and did a quality job. I'd give them an A.”
“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+.”
“They were professional, easy to work with, and responsive. They painted the exterior of our home, and they had to do some repair work on the outside of the house, too. There were no time overages. I would say that they're an A.”
“I like the quality of the work that they did in a timely manner. They were painting the exterior of the whole house. I had a few repairs that they did on the exterior also, and everything was fine. I was pleased with their work. I would give Nelson Exteriors an A.”
“They were very thorough, very detailed, and quick. It was exterior painting. They went above and beyond the call of duty. They painted my mailbox, too, which they didn't have to do. They did little things that weren't part of the contract, which was a nice gesture. A couple of my neighbors had used them. I'd give them an A.”
“Nelson Exteriors did a fine job. They did exterior painting.”
“They did some painting on my garage doors. I thought they did a good job, and they came on time and did it in a reasonable amount of time. They painted the garage doors, and they also had to replace some of the wood at the bottom of the doors where the rain began to damage them. Plus, they had to paint it. I would say that they get an A.”
“They were good. My wife said they did a very good job. I wasn't home when they were here, but I believe they painted our entire house. Based on what my wife said, it'd be an A for them.”
“I thought Nelson Exteriors did a great job. They did an exterior trim painting job. They were fine. They showed up on time and cleaned up after themselves. They're an A to me.”
“Nelson Exteriors has done work for me on several different occasions. In fact, I get called for recommendations, and I always recommend them to people when they're calling. I definitely trust them to do a good job, and if there's anything that isn't quite right, I know they'll come right back. That actually happened in my kitchen. I noticed they failed to paint one little section after they left for the day, and then the next morning, they were here first thing to fix it. I feel they're very reliable and very trustworthy. I don't have any problem with the folks they send to my house. They seem to do a good job, and I feel comfortable having them here. They always assign a project manager to me. I've had different ones on different projects over the years, but they always send me somebody, and that's very, very helpful because you know who you can talk to. You feel like you have somebody who will explain exactly what you want done, and if something isn't quite right, that's who you go to, and they take care of it. They painted my kitchen. They painted out front, on the upper and lower halls. They also painted the exterior of my house—that was the first job that they did. They also replaced the gutters and painted the outside. They cleaned them and everything, and then they painted them and did a lot of repairs. When they took down the gutters, there was a number of carpentry-type issues that had to be dealt with, and they did a good job with all of that. I'd give them an A.”
“I used Nelson Exteriors. They did the interior of the whole house, and they were on time and on budget. I'd give them an A.”
“Nelson Exteriors has done work for us. It went very well, and they will be doing more work for us. They did a good job, and I thought they were conscientious. I feel like they knew what they were doing. They did painting for the exterior. I would definitely recommend them to family and friends. They're an A-grade company.”
“We did use Nelson Exteriors, and they did a very nice job. We had a lot of problems, and one was with the weather delays, but that had nothing to do with them. When we finally did get a break in the weather, they were right here. They were very efficient and got things done quickly. They cleaned up well, so we were happy about that. The job was outdoor painting, and then they had to do some repair work on some rotten boards, so they had their carpentry crew in here as well. They did a great job. We were pleased, and we would use them again. I'd give them an A.”
“Nelson Exteriors did good, quality work, and they were professional throughout the process. They did some siding repairs and then painted the whole exterior.”
“Nelson Exteriors was exceptional. This is a rare thing to say, but they did everything they said they would do. They did a very nice, high-quality job, and all the detail work and cleanup was done on time. They made positive recommendations on paint colors and choices. It was a full exterior paint job, and we had quite a bit of wood that was rotted. It was excellent.”
“They were phenomenal. They were quick and thorough, and they did a great job. They painted a door and some shutters. Nelson Exteriors is an A-grade company, for sure.”
“I think they did the best job that could have been done given the situation, and I was just overall impressed with all aspects. They did painting on the interior of the home, and we're looking to have them do other work in the coming months. It was a tough job, but they did a good job with it. They get an A.”
