Roy has been doing some insurance repair work for my basement after water issues. He has been very helpful with dealing with the insurance adjustor and helping me get everything organized. His work has been great and I asked him to do some extra work while on site and his pricing is excellent. Roy has always available when I had questions about the project.

Amazing! I am so impressed with their professionalism & knowledge with the small repairs needed. They took their time to make sure I was satisfied with the work. I even sprung one more small job at them right before leaving & they were able to accommodate me & repair right on the spot. I will definitely use them again if the need arises.

Fixed our water heater. It took a bit to figure out what was wrong, but once that was sorted out, our repair went very quickly. Everyone was very friendly and nice to work with.

Late in 2006 we purchsed a smaller house and thanks to our realator, we were introduced to Nelson and Sons. The home we purchased was in need of extensive work to make it safe, comfortable and beautified. Before we moved in, all the floors were replaced, carpeting some rooms, congolumn in kitchen and wood in the living room. This was accomplished perfectly for us and we could move in our furniture. There were also areas in the basement that needed repair - this too was done very well. The trim work on the ceilings and wainscoating are beautiful. After we moved in, we had the attached garage converted to a large dining room. It was a massive effort that he accomplished with apparent ease with his skills with woodwork, and all the necessary things to accomplish for a raised floor. After this, we needed a porch for our back door. Cement was poured, columns were added for the elongted roof of our porch. A beautiful place for morning coffee when weather/temperatures permit. We also decided we needed a garage. The 2 car garage is remarkably sturdy with an attic and very well built.. Travis worked the better part of a year for us. He was always punctual at work. His initiative, suggestions and high quality of work was appreciated by us. His special touch for a project were improvements that exceeded our expectations. During his time working here he detected several problem areas. Thanks to him our home is now safer and more comfortable. He also remodeled our bathroom and also cut a small window for this windowless bathroom, which now is very attractive for a bathroom. Another project was remodeling our kitchen - - new sink, fixtures, cubbards and dishwasher were installed. My wife was exceptionally pleased as it was remodeled exactly as she wished. Throughout it was a pleasure to have Travis working on our home. He is honest and trustworthy. We gave him a set of house keys so he could work when we were out of town a few days. A couple years after all this, we decided we needed a front porch. I showed him a photo of a portico on a Louisiana Plantation and told him we wanted one like that. He replicated the photo perfectly and now we have a very attractive portico with 2 large white columns. We have received numerous compliments on the beauty of our portico. My wife and I are tetired and this our retirement home. We now live in comfort, safety and beauty - - - and a special comfort knowing we can call on Nelson and Sons whom we can trust when we need work done or an inspection.

    Hanigan Construction did some general home repair work for us, including repairing some trim, fascia and soffit boards. Ryan did a great job and made some recommendations and adjustments to make sure we didn't continue to have the same problems with moisture getting to the boards. His price was very reasonable and it was nice to find someone willing to work on a smaller project. We would definitely hire Hanigan Construction again for another project.

    I had JWT Construction and Remodel redo the bathroom so I could sell my house. They were very efficient and are willing to listen to the different ideas you have. Also previously they did work on my basement and they were able to get it done in the time allowed.

    I loved working with Todd. And if I ever build again, he would be my go to. This is the second home my husband and I have built (one out of state and now the one we live in). And working with him was perhaps one of my very favorite experiences. I have very particular tastes (both aesthetic and functional), have always been very detail oriented, and I am a very hands on client (probably a bit annoying for him and Gloria). He was always accommodating, very involved, and always able to put things back into perspective (to the functional reason). The contractors that he employs have been top notch; always going above and beyond and informing me what they were doing if I stopped by (which I did do daily). I actually got to know most of his contractors and when you realize that they love what they are building, I think it actually shows in their craftsmanship. As for Todd, his attention to perfection just suited my own anal retentiveness. He absolutely puts himself into building this home and I could talk him up forever. I loved working with Gloria. She gives great advice and makes sure that things are communicated. She's also very detail oriented and will keep things on track. We have been in our home for a year. We have had a handful of things that needed repair after a year that involved Todd, but all minor (lighting, driveway cracks due to foundation settling, grout that has some cracks). Probably one major thing that could not have been predicted and really no one's fault was handled immediately. I absolutely LOVE my home. I loved building it. I have maybe two things that I would change (light switch placement on one light and maybe having added the potential frame-out of a fireplace in the semi-unfinished basement). Todd and Gloria both received hugs when we were done. Hands down, when we complete the basement, I plan to have Todd and his contractors back out. He always seemed to see my vision and listened to me when I was very specific in what I had in my head. And when the materials weren't available (or "not in style for Omaha," as one supplier had the gall to tell me), Gloria made sure to hunt down another option that fit what I was looking for. There's something to be said about the Menards. They are a pretty amazing team. It's one thing to listen, one thing to envision, and the other thing to build. So they are a pretty complete package. And let me add, that when I went through a model and expressed that it was and wasn't entirely what I was looking for, I knew that Todd and I would get along when he asked, "Well what would you want to change?" and he took no offense to it. In fact, it solidified our business relationship when he took me room by room and when I expressed something about a nook not being what I would want, he immediately offered other options... It resulted in a giant closet. When we weren't able to install two shower heads, his suggestion were more body sprayers... BEST idea ever. And when I saw something during building that I thought wasn't going to turn out exactly how I envisioned it, there was always the work towards getting it to the best of the availability. One last thing, my husband and I have expressed that we love our home so much that going on fancy vacations won't ever beat being at our own home, we enjoy it so. :)

    We had a great experience with Travis. Our gardening project grew to include an irrigation system repair and more. His "can do" attitude were a refreshing and welcome approach. We will definitely hire him to help us again!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a general contractor?

    When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

    When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

    How is a mold test done?

    Mold testing can help identify a mold infestation in your home or business. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of test you want done and the number of samples you request. The national average mold inspection cost is $250-$300. The EPA explains that if you have a visible mold problem, in most cases sampling and testing is unnecessary. However, if you have unexplained and potential mold-related illness or can smell mold in your house, mold inspection costs may be a good investment. To avoid unscrupulous testers, the EPA recommends working with a testing agency that adheres to the analytical methods laid out by professional organizations such as the American Industrial Hygiene Association or the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of testing done. Prices can also vary, depending on the size of the home, the number of surface areas to be tested, and the extent of the mold infestation. Here are some examples of mold inspection average costs:

    • Swab testing: $200-$300
      • A professional collects a surface swab from a potentially infested area for testing in a lab. Some professionals have concerns about this being the sole test done because it only gathers a small amount of data from a certain area of the house. That’s why it’s frequently done in conjunction with air cell testing.
    • Air cell testing: $250-$350
      • A professional collects an air sample in the home to measure the amount of mold spores in the air. This test is frequently done in conjunction with swab testing to ensure more complete data. Costs are higher for this test because the equipment required of the contractor is more expensive.
    • Both air cell and swab tests provided by the same company: $400-$600.

    How does mold remediation work?

    Mold remediation can eliminate mold colonies from your home or business. Mold is a normal part of daily life, but in wet or humid settings mold can quickly colonize and spread by making spores. Whether visible or hidden, untreated mold can cause real health problems and cause extensive (and expensive) damage to your property. Mold remediation involves killing the mold, removing the dead mold and preventing future mold growth. Here is an example of the steps involved in professional mold remediation:

    • Contain work area and apply negative air pressure HEPA air purifiers to prevent cross-contamination. If spores spread, the colonies can easily regrow elsewhere in your home.
    • Mist an EPA-registered antimicrobial to suspend and kill mold spores.
    • Remove affected building surfaces.
    • Bag and dispose of contaminated materials properly.
    • Treat cavities/underlayment and dehumidify.
    • Abrasively remove dead loose mold.
    • Apply EPA-registered protective sealer.
    • Perform clearance testing.

    Remove containment materials.

    What is a mold remediation?

    Mold remediation is the process of identifying and removing unhealthy levels of mold that have colonized in a home, office, school or other building. Over time, if untreated, mold can destroy a home by breaking down cellulose-based materials (like wood or ceiling tiles) and causing a slow and messy decay. In the shorter term, a mold infestation can cause severe health problems. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), mold can trigger respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, nose or throat irritation, skin irritations, problems with your nervous system, and aches and pains. Mold inspection and mold remediation are often requested in tandem, although they are two separate services. Nationally, mold inspection costs range from $250 to $300. If mold has been positively identified in your house, either by visual examination or through mold testing, remediation can safely remove it. Properly trained and equipped professionals use specialized equipment (like vacuums and air scrubbers with HEPA filters) to keep mold spores contained while they remove contaminated materials and treat infested areas with antimicrobial spray. A key component to a successful mold remediation after eliminating the mold is ensuring that the water source that caused the mold infestation is also resolved.

    Can mold grow behind drywall?

    Mold can grow behind drywall, in your attic, in the basement, under floors — mold can grow anywhere. The key to controlling mold is controlling moisture and water. If your home has been exposed to excessive water due to flooding or heavy rains, if you have an old home with leaky pipes, or if you live in an area with high humidity, you need to be vigilant about mold. Mold is most easily identified by sight. You may see blooms of mold on furniture, on walls, or along the floor. If you can spot mold, you probably don’t need to test for it and can save on mold inspection costs and direct your energies towards mold remediation. But if you’re not certain, you may need a pro to help you determine whether you have hidden mold. Scent and illness are two potential signs of hidden mold. You may smell anything from a musty earth scent to a foul stench, and you may experience respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, nose or throat irritation, skin irritation, problems with your nervous system, or aches and pains. The national average cost of mold inspection and testing is $250-$300.
