After considering other bids, I hired Joel Nelson of Trust Contracting to fix up my mother's house to sell to help pay for her nursing home residency.

Now, this is not my first trip to the rodeo regarding home remodeling.

However, it was the best experience I've had with such work. Joel was straight-forward to work with, and moderately priced.

Also, when prospective buyers came up with a short list of special requests, he dispatched those new tasks efficiently.

He's a great source of advice about what works and what's worthwhile.

I would hire him again without hesitation.

When the time came to remodel our kitchen, I compiled a short list of contractors that I knew and trusted from my time in the construction industry - Joel Nelson was on the list.

What set Joel apart from the rest was his willingness to listen, make suggestions when appropriate and, above all – meet a schedule.

We were a little unfair in that respect, setting a tight window between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Joel was undaunted and on-schedule throughout the project.

In the end he was finished a few days early, what a great Christmas we had – Thanks Joel!

Last fall my husband and I contracted Joel Nelson and Trust Constructors to do a complete remodel of our kitchen. The timetable Joel laid out was short and the predicted cost was agreeable, so he and his crews began work. We wanted walls removed, doors and windows moved and the floorplan altered. The remodel grew from just kitchen and dining to the whole first floor, including a grand new staircase. We wanted radiant heat under the new wood floors, and he studied up on it and found the best company for the job (it has been great). We decided to get new doors and woodwork throughout, and the work was completed beautifully. Even with a week of snow delays and all the add-ons we requested, the work was completed on schedule.

Joel has great crews that work with him, courteous and trustworthy and conscientious. Any request or suggestion by my husband or myself was addressed and taken care of in the best manner.

We would recommend Trust Constructors to family, friends or anyone wanting to improve their best investment - their home.

Thanks so much for coming to my rescue with my various projects! The new tile in the master shower and in the powder room floor look great! The cornucopia of other little things are all great too! Thanks for being fast, efficient, quality-focused and affordable. I’ll be calling you again soon! Next project…dance studio in the basement!

The purpose of this letter is to serve as a high and elated recommendation for Joel Nelson and his company, Trust Constructors. I hired Joel and his company this year to give my kitchen and entryway a much needed facelift, including new door frames, trim, some cabinetry replacement/updating, dry wall (vs. wallpaper), paint, new tile backsplash, new pantry doors, hardwood floors throughout, windows, outside wall repair, and new appliance order assistance, etc.

My friends who have had kitchen remodels have been dealing with the dust and project going on for up to a year, and Joel and his crew had my kitchen remodeled and back in service in under 2 weeks! Needless to say, I was thrilled!

In addition, I really leaned on Joel to offer up ideas because coming up with things I could do to update the kitchen without spending a ton of money was not my best area, or interest. The results of his creativity were impressive, including some custom cabinetry and tile design work.

He is creative, fast, effective, and friendly to work with. I would recommend Joel to any homeowner, or business. I trust him and the quality work he offers.

Our good fortune was finding a truly caring and professional contractor – Mr. Joel Nelson.

Through his company, Trust Constructors, Joel organized a team of specialists to efficiently work on our home.

The remodeling of our kitchen, hallway, and bathroom was done with innovation, efficiency, and excellence beyond our expectations.

Mr. Nelson kept to his printed scheduled date of completion.

We are looking forward to working on a future project with this creative and honest man.

Thanks for asking us to write a letter for you. You know I’m not much for words, but I certainly want to take the opportunity to let others know about the wonderful job you did on our rental house. I hope that it brings you more business.

You really did do an outstanding job on our rental house in Aurora. A rental remodel is always tricky. You want it nice, but don’t want to spend so much money that it takes you forever to get your money back. And then you want it done super-fast so you don’t lose multiple months of rent, but that means you’re probably not going to get the best quality.

That’s why I expected to sacrifice some quality for speed when we asked you to complete the remodel of this rental house. But not only did you finish 2 weeks earlier than expected, the quality was first-rate! That meant we could get it rented before the end of the month and instead of losing 3+ months of rent, we only lost 2.

Thank you for always being clean, professional, and fun to work with. It really was a pleasure working with you, and I’ll be calling when we have more work to do.

Thanks!

I have prepared this letter for the purpose of expressing my recommendation on behalf of Joel S. Nelson. My husband and I were referred to Mr. Nelson by a neighbor who had used him for prior building needs. Our neighbor was more than pleased with his work, his commitment to provide quality work, and his overall performance. Under that recommendation, we placed a call with Mr. Nelson who in turn demonstrated the same qualities as my neighbor had expressed.

We were very impressed by his examination of our needs by providing several floor plans, a formal bid and a formal receipt upon completion, which included a complete and full warranty. We were also pleased with his competitive bid compared to those in the local community.

More importantly we desired a person whom we felt safe around and to allow access to our home if we were not present. Mr. Nelson’s personality is welcoming, friendly and he has demonstrated to us that he commits himself to being an honest and caring person, not only to his work but to his clientele.

We were also pleased that Mr. Nelson was very meticulous with his work, in that he always came prepared and never left a mess behind him. He was accurate with his timing and will be completely open with his needs and timing to perform the work.

We have recommended Mr. Nelson to all of our friends and neighbors, and have no hesitation contacting him with any future needs. Mr. Nelson is truly top notch. If you would like to view his work or have questions, feel free to call us at the information below.

I wanted to write to express my appreciation for the wonderful remodeling job you did on my home. You won’t believe how quickly it sold! My realtor had prepared me for a long wait as well as for the likelihood that I would have to lower the price throughout that wait in order to attract a buyer. Not only did I have a contract within six weeks, but I was delighted to get what I needed out of the sale!

I am convinced, Joel, that the reason it sold so quickly was due to your amazing design and remodeling ideas, your excellent work, your attention to details, and the over-all beautiful result! I was truly fortunate when you agreed to assess my home’s remodeling needs then to work many long hours to ready it for sale.

I loved the tile-work in the bathrooms, (especially the one in the basement with the tile covering the entire room—even the ceiling!) as well as the other bathrooms, the kitchen, and entry-ways. The front and back entry-ways and the tile on the floor in front of the kitchen sink were truly unique! One-of-a-kind!

The wood flooring in the kitchen and dining area was perfect! It was so well-done and placed so naturally! The carpeting, the painting inside and out, the crown molding, wainscot molding, and the incredible boxes on the walls—all was flawless! So attractive!

I loved all the work you did! Thank you for helping me with the design, colors, textures and finishes. So soon after my husband’s death, I just didn’t have the energy to do it on my own. Your instincts and expertise really paid off. My only regret is that I couldn’t continue to live in my beautiful “new” home. It was more lovely and comfortable after your improvements than it had ever been!

Joel, you were so great to have around while you worked. You were pleasant, professional and clean. You worked so hard and seemed to plan so well, that things were done in the right order, and I was never inconvenienced longer than necessary. That meant a lot to me.

I hope that I may continue to call on you when I’m ready to make new improvements to my townhome in Lakewood. If you ever need recommendations, I would be happy for you to share this letter with prospective customers.

Thanks again!

Having not used a contractor in the area before, my husband and I found Trust Constructors through an online search. We met with several contractors and decided Trust Constructors was the best for our bathroom remodel. Joel was very friendly and honest with lots of good ideas when we needed them, and very accommodating when we added little projects elsewhere in the house. The finished project is beautiful and we couldn't be happier. It's wonderful to have a contractor in the area who we can call on for all our future projects!!

I am writing this letter to thank you and your company, Trust Constructors, for the numerous projects you’ve completed on our home over the past year (from April 2009 to April 2010). In preparation for putting our house on the market, and after 30 years of no remodeling, it really needed some updates and tender-loving care.

Throughout all the projects, your company has shown diligence and dedication to finish work on time, and to complete QUALITY work. Specifically, Joel has two primary benefits over any other contractor I’ve met. One, he is fantastic at building and sticking to tight, yet, conceivable project timeframes. Two, he puts the client’s satisfaction first, and with sincere attention to detail.

Even when I made plan changes, your company was able to maintain the efficiency of the project and stay on our timetable. Your attention to the specifics of the construction as well as proper scheduling has been very remarkable, resulting in a job well done.

I would also like to mention that I received two other price quotes for the “new bedrooms” portion of the remodel in the basement, and Joel’s price came in almost 40% less than the next bid. His mark-up is not nearly what some contractors will charge, which I appreciated in a market like this.

Again, I would like to express my gratitude in providing your 110% effort in completing our home remodel projects. We would not hesitate to refer Trust Constructors to other homeowners or organizations that are also in need of quality services from a contractor.

In addition, as a mother of 3 busy children, thank you, for working around their toys, activities, interests in “what the workers are doing now”, etc.

As a point of interest, upon completion of all these remodel projects, we sold the house at top dollar in the first home sale “showing”.

Recommendation: HIGHLY RECOMMEND

We contracted with Trust Constructors to do our basement finish and could not be more pleased with the end result! From the very beginning, we felt we had a partner in our project. Our sincere thanks to Louis for his great design ideas, Todd and Octavio for making it all happen, and finally Joel for following up and making sure we were always happy with the work being done, Trust will be the first contractor we call if we need to have any work done in the future.

Thank you again for all your help!
