I have the best deck in Golden. It’s absolutely beautiful. The quality of work and the materials are top-notch. The work was done efficiently and on-time. And it was easy from the preliminary planning to quote to execution and clean-up. Communication was awesome. I have already recommended Nelson & Son Construction to others and would not hesitate to have them do future work for me. I love the deck and Clay and Luke were very easy to work with. Great job!!! 5 Stars in in quality, customer service, and value.

Before starting our custom home build we had a few concerns; our number one concern was building a dream home at a fair price. NSCS was absolutely the best bang for your buck. NSCS was very cognizant of our budget and built us an absolutely stunning house without breaking the bank. We did not go over budget a single penny! Our second concern of ours was the property we were building on was a very difficult site. NSCS did an excellent job of placing our house perfectly and giving us one of the best views in town. Another concern of ours was the timeframe. We were living at my parents house prior to the home build with 2 large dogs, 1 two year old boy and a pregnant wife that wanted to do a home birth, so getting the house done in a timely manner was crucial!!!!! NSCS finished the house well within an acceptable time frame and our 2 child was born in the comfort of our newly constructed home. Our experience with NSCS was exceptional. They were straight forward, kept the subcontractors on schedule, and were easy to communicate with. NSCS also opened our eyes to some incredible ideas to add into our new build that would amplify the look and feel of our home without costing us additional money. Without any hesitation I would recommend NSCS to anyone, anywhere, anytime. In my opinion there is no one better. Thank you NSCS!

I am enjoying my beautiful new semi-custom home built by Nelson and Son Construction.

Every detail was carefully planned and executed and the ideas and changes that were made to the house plans I chose make the house feel more open and light and made such a huge difference! Other recommendations made by them to add to the beauty of the exterior made my new home even more beautiful than I could have imagined. I was thrilled to be able to choose my flooring, tile, cabinets, lighting and counter tops!  They are truly a great team and strive to do quality work at a fair price. I am very delighted that I had Clay and Luke Nelson build my new home.

During the process of building, there was excellent communication and all of my questions or concerns were addressed quickly. Clay and Luke Nelson are honest, straight forward and the quality of their work is outstanding.

I would recommend Nelson and Son Construction to anyone who wants the job done right. Their knowledge, expertise and loyalty to their customers makes them one of a kind.


NSCS was instrumental in restoring my home after a pipe burst and flooded all three levels and the basement. They responded as soon as I called them to remove the water and wet carpet. The water damage required the entire kitchen to be removed and a new floor put in. The new floor is amazing. They located all water issues and repaired them. They handled the job quickly and professionally. My home looked brand new when they were done. I highly recommend them.

Clay and Luke are absolute life savers! They not only replaced our roof but also fixed all the structural issues or house had, including bringing the house up to code. In doing so, they informed us of other issues that they found, that were outside the scope of the work that they were doing. They fixed several other issues that we have had, free of charge! Their prices were a lot cheaper than any we found. They are honest, extremely knowledgeable in all areas of construction, and left my house cleaner than it was before they started. We will never use anyone other than them!

After a couple of months of interviewing and bidding work to various contractors, My wife and I hired Nelson & Son Construction Service to install extensive improvements in the front and back of our home. I liked the fact that Clay worked with his son and had a history of building custom homes. I also liked that Luke had an education in the construction field from Colorado State University and could bring additional perspective when planning the project. The scope of the project included full demo and haul away, large composite deck, concrete in front and back, gas line, fire pit, bamboo fencing, pergola, seat walls, stone work, and a variety of smaller projects to complement. Clay and Luke were very helpful in meeting with me to define the scope of the project so that we could start formulating a design plan on paper. Clay and Luke did a great job communicating what materials and options were available to best suit our budget. Once a plan was on paper and with my direction, Clay and Luke used their expertise and knowledge to orchestrate the execution of the project with various parties including; my designer, sub-contractors, the city engineers, surveyor, utility and phone companies and the neighbors. Clay and Luke did an excellent job as evidenced by the pictures and continue to stand by their work after the project was complete. The experience was very positive, my family and I are looking forward to enjoying our new yard. I will definitely consider Nelson & Son Construction Services for future home improvement projects.

I hired Nelson and Son Construction Service and they turned around a quote in only 1 day and began work the following day. They not only finished the entire project but also brought it up to code, and made it structurally, much more sound. We love the great work they did and I don’t have to worry about constant upkeep for years to come. I only had to pick out the color and the rest was done just as I wanted. They even re-routed cabling that had been wrongly routed. I appreciate their hard work, honesty and knowledge in a time where great customer service is extremely hard to find. I would certainly recommend them to anyone I know. Oh, and did I mention the price was below what I had expected to pay!

Great job guys!

Homeowner, Golden

I was not the easiest homeowner. I wanted a little red schoolhouse right out of a fairytale, I wanted it done yesterday, I wanted it to be inexpensive but also high in quality, and I wanted to be able to pick out everything myself. Oh, and I wanted to be included in every decision and watch every step of the construction process. I wanted a LOT! The first builder we spoke with wanted more money, twice a s much time, and most importantly was very hard to reach and uncomfortable to communicate with. Then we found Clay and Luke Nelson. They called me right back and came out the same day to discuss my project! They provided us with a quote which gave us all the details about where we could choose options and how much each part of construction would cost and they provided a contract that was fair for both parties. The entire construction process was as wonderful as a stressful and expensive project like this can possibly be. They communicated what was happening every step of the way and I had a lot of freedom to choose the parts that were important to me (doors, windows, sinks, cabinets, flooring, siding, roofing, finished, light fixtures, drywall finish, decking material, and so much more). I felt like I was a part of the project instead of just someone writing checks. Clay and Luke never made me feel like I was a burden, even though I know I was at times! They worked hard, hired good subcontractors, were respectful of my home and my ideas, and built my schoolhouse in record time. It is gorgeous and exceeded my nearly impossible expectations. I would HIGHLY recommend Nelson and Son Construction Service to anyone looking for an honest, hardworking, trustworthy general contractor.” “Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I would be happy to tell you more about how great it was to work with Clay and Luke Nelson!
