Project: Build or Replace a Deck or Non-Masonry Porch
Nelson and Sons Builders replaced our wood deck with composite decking. They were professional, listened to our plans and made appropriate suggestions to improve the outcome of the project. We were very pleased with the work they performed, and the new deck looks great. We would definitely recommend!

Review by in Radnor, PA
So happy with our new deck! John Nelson worked with us to replace our old deck, saving what was still good and saving us money! We got exactly what we wanted built in just 2 days! John and his sons are easy to work with and know what they re doing. An A+ experience!

Review by in West Chester, PA
They installed a new exterior door with a dog door inserted in it today. What a beautiful job! They kept me informed as to when these doors came in as they were special orders. They are very pleasant people and highly recommend them. Marge M

Everyone said the deck looks beautiful. John and sons went above and beyond what was expected. I think it looks absolutely perfect. It snowed and it was so easy shoveling over a completely flat surface. I couldn t be any happpier. John helped me out so much & responded quickly when I needed it done. I am very pleased. They are very nice and professional. It was like having family in the business. THANKS AGAIN!!!

Excellent job and good value for the money. They were very responsive, the job was completed quickly, and the new deck is amazing. John was very good about explaining the different options and offering some suggestions we had not considered. Very pleased with the work.

We have nothing but good things to say about John and his sons. They are a class act. The deck they built for us was done fast and is very well built. The craftsmanship in their work is top shelf. We strongly recommend these guys if you want a great job, fair price and no nonsense in the time it takes to do the job. When they left nothing was left behind but a beautiful deck we had to do nothing but enjoy. Thanks Nelson and Sons Dean and Dolores W.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
