Our Commitment

We stress clear communication through being accessible by phone, text, and email for you. Our main focus is to thoroughly meet your requirements and to complete the construction project with great care while keeping conscious of your budget. We strive to provide you with fine service on which each project is addressed with attention to detail and proficient workmanship.

Construction Management

Our team can execute all phases of construction efficiently, this includes overall planning and control of a home remodel, new addition, or vertical lift from beginning to completion. Construction management requires both project scope and budget as well as project management.

Based on the type of project you require and your budget considerations, we give you an idea of what the project will involve, such as choosing specialized sub-contractors, tools, supplies and permit applications. We will also work with you to help define and refine your design or project ideas.
  • Project management gives you peace of mind. From the project scope, we establish a timeline and goal on which we communicate and administer specific jobs to personnel and/or sub-contractors to ensure to meet your project needs.

[Nelson Contracting] unveiled issues with our sub-flooring which he fixed and raised some additional joists underneath the house. If [they] did not identify this, we would have seen our floor cracking in about 1-2 years timeframe. That displayed integrity and good workmanship for me especially since I heard horror stories from a friend where this happened and she had to re-marble the whole area.

[They are] always available on cell phone (including weekends). If [they do] not pick up, [they] generally respond within an hour or so. Plus, [they] use email which is convenient for me to communicate with [them]. If a design issue araises, [they] readily identify it and review it with you.
