“We're very happy with the work they did. We had some rotting wood that needed to be replaced on the exterior, and they also did siding work and painting. They were thorough.

I'd recommend them, and I've already recommended them.”

I would give them the best rating possible.”

“I used Nelson Exteriors, and they did excellent work. They did siding and exterior painting. I would rate them as an A.”

“They did some soffits and fascia, and they just did a really nice job. They were out here on time, and they cleaned up nicely. They actually put up this HardiePlank so that the bees and stuff won't get into it—those carpenter bees. They were replacing the old soffits, fascia, and trim on the house. It's an older house, so it needed to be painted—instead of painting it, we just went ahead and replaced it with this HardiePlank, which was painted already. I'd rate them as an A because they were good.”

“Nelson has done a very good job for us. We've used them several times, and they've done a really good job. It was exterior work. Our siding was kind of a brown color—it was like a cedar siding—and they actually covered that with a yellow paint. They did a great job. I heard about them through the Best Pick Reports book, I think, and I would give them a very good rating—an A.”

“They did some siding work for us, and they ran the job well and finished on time. They were responsible. They cleaned, and they did a good job. A friend of a friend referred us to Nelson. They are an A.”

“We were selling a house, and they came out and did what I needed to have done. They were professional. They came over and caulked my outside siding joints so that we could do the final walk-through. The buyers were happy, so Nelson Exteriors deserves an A.”

“I liked everything about Nelson Exteriors. They replaced the siding, and it's beautiful. They did a wonderful job—I have no complaints at all. Everything was great, and my experience with them was just wonderful. The man who was in charge of my home went out of his way to do everything that I had asked. They get an A+ all the way around.”

“They did siding and painting for us. We liked their speed, that they finished on time, the quality of the job, and the people they have working for them. I'd say Nelson Exteriors earned an A+.”

“They were very professional. They were on time, they were efficient with their time, and their quality of work was really good. The guy who installed everything was really good about cleaning everything, and the guy who did the woodwork was super, super nice.”

“Nelson Exteriors did a good job. They did the work on time as agreed upon. They did painting and siding replacement. It was an acceptable time frame. The quality of work was good, and their cleanup was good. I'd give them an A+.”

“I think the work Nelson Exteriors did for me was OK, as far as I know. It was OK. They did a good job, and I'd use them again.”

“I had them replace all of my windows. They also repaired and replaced some siding, and they painted the entire exterior of the house. They were fabulous—an A+. Part of the reason I went with Nelson is that they had to replace all of the siding on my fireplace box, and it was one of those funky angles. They had to repair some siding and replace it in order to paint because when the builder built the house, he did the angle with siding. The people at Nelson and some of the other companies said that it really should have been shingles, not siding. After they had done the work, I just happened to look up and see that one of the shingles had slipped down. I called Chris—the guy who oversaw the whole project—and the next day when I came home, it was fixed. That's why they get the plus.”

“Nelson did a great job. Everything looks great, and they did it on time. They replaced siding on one side of the house and painted the whole exterior and the trim. Their customer service is great. I'd grade them an A+.”

“Nelson redid the siding on my house with HardiePlank, and they put in new windows and a new door. The installer did a lot of little things to make it all work better. The guy that was the supervisor made things happen, and they respected my property. I would give them an A+. They did a great job.”

“They were excellent. The quality of the work and everything about them were good. I would definitely recommend them. They're punctual; I could call them, and they would be here right away. It's prompt service. I'd definitely give them an A.”

“They totally remodeled the outside of our home. It was a huge, huge project. They were great to work with. This was for an entire condo complex. Nobody had anything bad to say about them. They did everything. You never know what you are going to see when you pull off the siding. We really thought very highly of them. I was very pleased—very, very pleased. They were very responsive and cordial. I don't have anything negative to say; it was very good.”

“Nelson Exteriors changed the siding from aluminum to HardiePlank, and then they also painted. They’re excellent. They did a super job. They were very conscientious and were a pleasure to work with. Impressive all the way through the job.”

“Nelson did the siding, and they did a great job. They were very courteous and professional and managed a large project very well. I would definitely recommend them.”

“They did a terrific job—a fabulous job.”

“They were excellent. I couldn’t be more pleased. They were meticulous, polite, and respectful.”

“They did painting and siding repair, and they did the gutter work. They do a lot of things, and that's pretty much why we work with them. Everything went well, and everything looked good. They finished quickly and on budget and on time. All the contractors they had on-site were great. They answered every question we had. They were definitely good. Nelson did pressure washing as well.”

“They did a good job. They did the siding and some other things. They followed up, and they kept us on schedule. They let us know when they were going to be working on our unit. They did a good job. They were very reliable, and they got the job finished, and we're very happy with the result.”

“They did work at my aunt's house, and I think they did good work. They did very good. Everything's fine, and I think my aunt is happy with what they did.”

“I had them do some gutter work for me. Everything went very smoothly. It was exactly as the guy who came out and gave me the quote described it. I would give them an A. They cleaned everything up after themselves. I would use this company again.”

“They did work for us. They painted the community I was in, actually. They did new siding and painting. They're excellent. They finished in a reasonable amount of time. It was a big job. They cleaned up after themselves, and all the men that work for them were just the best—very polite and very efficient. No problems. We had excellent service and work, so they get an A.”

“They worked out fine. They did siding, and they were very courteous. They were very respectful, and if anything was wrong or damaged, they just fixed it. It was very good. I was very pleased with their reaction to things, and they were very good to deal with.”

“My experience was very good. They were timely, they were professional, and they did what they said they would. They did wall repair and painting inside and then the gutters on the outside. They also replaced siding on the outside and painted it. I would rate them an A. I had to have the person who did the inside come back and do some corrections, but he did it with no questions asked.”

“They worked out wonderfully for us. They did the siding and painting of the trim, but we did not get windows because we got new windows a couple of years ago. They were all very nice, very helpful. They went through the drywall at one place in our house, and they fixed that very promptly. They were very communicative of what had happened and when they were going to fix it. Everyone was super nice that was involved and that we interacted with.”

“It's good. They cleaned the gutters for me. They were good. They were very quick, and they finished it very fast. They did it in half an hour. They initially said it was going to take an hour. My neighbors got a lot more work done from the same place. I saw them and asked them to clean the gutters too, so that's what they did.”

“They were real attentive, and it was a big project for us and a lot of the other units. When we found things that needed attention, they were right on it. So, we were very pleased. There were several occasions where the project was in full swing and we had something that was probably relatively minor in the broad scheme of things, but they got somebody on it right away. There were just several little things that had to be taken care of. With us, we were demolishing the old siding, and the crew that was doing it blew out the outside air conditioning unit. Nelson stepped right up and took care of replacing that with a brand-new unit, and that was done within a day or two. That was just an example of their service and ownership of the project and making sure that other people were happy.”

“They were fabulous. They did amazing, amazing work. They did siding, painting, gutter installation, and also some repair work.”
