Toby is the original founder, senior partner, and all around chief fireman for Nelson Contracting LLC. He handles our human resources, accounting and job production needs with general aplomb and the occasional miracle.

Besides his well-developed office talents, he also holds the official Nelson Contracting record for shingling speed at 7.6 squares of three tabs in one hour (without a helper). If you have no idea what that means, know these two things: 7.6 squares of three tabs weighs 1,672 pounds, and laying that many in an hour is really, really, fast. 

Last but not least, if you need a clever limerick, haiku, free verse, the answer to a crossword puzzle, or a nonsense song written in five minutes or less, Toby’s the man for that job too.

Aaron joined Toby as a partner in Nelson Contracting at the ripe old age of 17 and has been trying to figure out what happened ever since. Today, he’s the guy in charge  of our marketing and sales.

When he’s not glued to his phone, he enjoys listening to classical music, drinking obscene quantities of coffee, fishing, and reading almost anything except the directions.

Art is our project superintendent, home-repair problem-solver, and catfishing expert. We’ve only figured out how to pay him for the first two, much to his disappointment.

Art has been a valued member of our team at Nelson Contracting since 2008, and is experienced in all phases of roofing, siding and gutter repair or replacement.

His mother might call him Arthur and you might call him Art, but we just call him when we need something done right the first time, on time.

Matt is our senior roof technician. He’s been with us almost since the very beginning, coming onboard in 2003.

In that time, he has been an invaluable part of our growth and success. He has years of experience in all phases of roofing and siding, and we feel greatly blessed to have his diligent contributions on our projects.

In addition to his home repair talents, he is also our staff naturalist. If any of us have a question as to what a particular rock, bird, flower or tree is called, Matt almost always has the answer off the top of his head.
