Dear Mark,

I would like to thank all that worked on my Dad's house on Florence Ave. in Ellington. A special thanks to Jim who did such an outstanding job and took so much pride in his work - it really shows in the final results - a job well done! The house looks wonderful!



Art A.


Dear Mark & Sue,

It has been a pleasure working with you! We've had a wonderful experience from our first meeting with John through Scott's final touches. We've dealt with several contractors over the last few years and, by far, you have been the most professional, honest and dependable, and take pride in your work. We can't thank you enough!



Laurie & Tony B.


We would like to add that we were very pleased with the service we received from Nicholas & Son from the first phone call to the completion of work. We were very impressed with the rapidity the work was done and how clean our property was after. The roof looks great!


Thank you very much and we will definitely not hesitate to recommend you or think of you for future projects.

Thank you for the great work. You can use us for a reference if so desired.





Thanks for the good service and work on my windows and door.




Dear Mark,

From our initial meeting with Jon, we were impressed with his knowledge and especially the fact that there was no pressure!! We were expecting a hard sales pitch and were pleasantly surprised when Jon listened to what we wanted and said ‘okay’. When we said that replacing the windows at this time wasn’t in our budget, he again said ‘okay’ – no pressure!! What a great experience to feel like someone is listening to what you want and can afford.


Jim who did the work was phenomenal – all our questions and concerns were answered and he was wonderful in keeping us up to date with his progress. It was exciting to come home each day and see the progress that had been made. He was even great with our dog – trying to get her to calm down with all the banging!!


Our house now looks brand new and I think every neighbor on the street has commented on how wonderful it looks and what a great job you guys did.


We would highly recommend your company – your customer service alone is worth coming back to.


Thanks again!

Dear Mark,

My wife, Patti, and I just wanted to thank you and your crew for a terrific job. We have received numerous compliments from neighbors and passer-byers. Your entire crew was very professional and courteous and I would be happy to recommend you to others. Best of health and success in 2004!

Vernon, CT


Dear Mark,

We’d like to thank you for the wonderful job you and the crew did. We are very satisfied with the results. It also only confirmed our decision that we hired your company to replace the roof and side the house.

It has only been a few days since the job has been completed and have already received compliments from neighbors.


Thank you again,

Sharon and Paul H.


Dear Mark & Sue,


What can we say? you guys are great! From the beginning to the end, everything was taken care of including the attention of the little "details" completed during the installation! Ron did a fantastic job with the doors. Anyone looking for home improvement should look no further than Nicholas & Son. The products are superior to those "Big Box" stores and the workmanship is second to none! We will definitely call again when we are ready for the other doors to be done. Have a safe and happy holiday!


Bob & Sandra O., Vernon, Ct.


Dear Mark & Sue,


Thank you and your staff for installing the windows. Friends and family who have seen them told us they look very nice. We're looking forward to spring and summer so we can open them up and enjoy them. We'd be happy to recommend your firm to anyone who wants replacement windows.

Dear Mark Nicholas + Son,


Enclosed is a check for the balance of the 2 windows installed in our house last November. We are very pleased with the windows and look forward to replacing more. Please have Bill, who has provided excellent sales and service, call us in April. Happy New Year!




Audra E.



Dear Mr. Nicholas:


We are quite pleased with your recent window replacements. The difference in room temperature is very noticeable and, in this cooler weather, very welcome. Previously, there was a cold draft around each window in the room making it rather uncomfortable. Now we can feel the warmth coming from the radiators in the room. The new windows are living up to your recommendations. Thanks for your prompt response and superb workmanship.




Jim T.



Dear Mark,


I want to let you know how much we love our new replacement windows! They look like the old ones - a plus for an older home like ours - but they function like one would expect 21st century windows to function They're convenient and I look forward to their fuel-saving feature this winter. It's been a pleasure doing business with Nicholas and Son.


Thanks again,


Carolyn B.



Dear Mark,


In July you installed new prime and storm doors in our front entrance. I have had a busy summer, and regret not writing earlier, but you did such an outstanding job that I thought something should be written to compliment you on your work.


The products we purchased from you are of excellent quality, and although we have had them for only a short time, are quite satisfied. More important, though, was the professional job you, your father, and the other workers performed while installing the doors. The tasks were done on time, cleanup was complete, and several additional visits to complete minor adjustments were done promptly and thoroughly.


Thank you for a superior job!

Windows from Nicholas & Son are everything they said they'd be. Aside from being great looking windows that are easy to handle and to care for and really keeping the house warmer in winter and cooler in summer, they have the added bonus of keeping the house quieter from outside noises It was hard to believe windows could make such a difference!


We've been delighted with the product and workmanship. A quality product and quality workmanship In addition, we were able to have new woodwork installed without the additional hassle of having to hire carpenters which we would have to have done with other window companies. That really made the difference to us. A company that will go that one extra step to try to do the best. There aren't too many companies that take pride in their work today like that so we were really impressed. And working with an established team with a good reputation sets your mind at ease.

PS We've had may compliments on our new windows.



Dear Mark,


We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the job your company has done with siding our house and installing new windows.


When searching for a service contractor, we consider both professionalism and promptness at the top of our priorities. We were thoroughly pleased with your level of professionalism and promptness in servicing us from beginning to end. You have exceeded our expectations in both craftsmanship and customer relations. We certainly appreciate the personal contact that you made with us throughout the process. It was quite reassuring to hear from you directly to inquire about our satisfaction and inform us of the crew's progress and remaining tasks. Whenever we had questions or concerns you addressed them right away and made sure we understood your response.


As new homeowners, we have been hiring several contractors for various home improvements. Although we have been satisfied with the overall end products, we have not yet experienced the superior customer service effort that you and your company put forth.


Be assured that if we have further home improvements which your company offers, you will be the first person we will contact. We will also be sure to recommend your services to our friends and associates.


Thank you again for your sincere concern of our complete satisfaction!



Marybeth and Todd M.





I wanted to take some time and formally recognize your company's high level of personal service and workmanship. Good service and excellent workmanship delivered with a good attitude is a rare commodity these days. Many people do not show the attention to detail and follow through that Nicholas & Son have given my job, especially in today's building boom and tight job market.


In addition, my wife and I can only say positive statements regarding your associate Mark Hun. Mark has continually exceeded our expectations with his workmanship, attention to detail and positive work ethic. His time and effort spent ensuring a quality product is more than an average workman would produce. I highly recommend Mark for any siding jobs. He is a major asset to your organization.


Please feel free to use me for any future reference.


Best wishes,

Brad and Nancy H.

Ellington CT



Dear Mark,


Thank you for your note. We are delighted with our new siding! It really looks wonderful, and we appreciate all your efforts to complete this project to our satisfaction. Please extend our thanks to Mike and Mark for a job well done.


Best Regards,

Sandy and Tom S.



To Nicholas & Son,


Thank you for everything you have done for my family. We have gotten a lot of compliments on how well and what an excellent job your men did on my house, doors and windows. I guess when you have a team of great workers, things just come out right. Maybe in the near future you can do our basement windows.


Thank you,

The W. Family


PS - Thank you for not turning our four year old son away. You made him feel like he was part of your team and we appreciate that. Thank you.


To whom it may concern,


Dana and I are extremely pleased with the workmanship your employees have done siding our house and putting in new doors and windows. Next year we will probably get the rest of the new windows and have your employees put them in. Our house is so perfect it looks like the house was just built!


Jon Porter is quite the salesman. He had us hooked almost right away and we are pleased he did. He certainly is the best man for that job! He is also very friendly. Jon told me when the house was completed I would go to the grocery store and, come back and go right by our house. I thought that was a big joke. However, yesterday I came back from church and even though I was going slow, I couldn't find my house! His prediction came true! Thank you Jon.


We have had two different neighbors tell us we now have the nicest looking house on the street and Hilliard Street is a very long street. We want to thank all your employees that came and worked on our house.


Let us first thank Mark Nicholas. Thanks for being there Mark. Thank you for coming over with and dumping the dumpster and for checking things out. You are a very nice fellow and very friendly. Thank you Mark.


Dana and I have both talked to Sue Nicholas on the phone. She knows how to run the office. You are a very nice lady and also very friendly. Thank you Sue.


Bill Michaels - what a guy! We gave you the key to our house when we went away to Aruba. Not only did you put in our new doors and windows (expertly) but you took care of our dog for a few days. Now that is above and beyond the call of duty! You are a great guy, also you are very friendly. Thank you Bill.


Now to the two main guys in this, Jerry Couture and Ronnie Zundell (alphabetically so as not to show any favoritism). You two, Jerry and Ronnie, did a fantastic perfect job. You work so well together. We enjoyed having you here. Without you our house would not look as good as it does. Even if we had two other guys putting on the siding, they would not have done such a perfect job. You two are wonderful guys and friendly too. Thank you Jerry and Ronnie.


Young Travis Downes, what a great and fast worker you are. You stripped the shakes off our house (most of the house) in no time flat. How great it is to be young! You also are very friendly. Thank you Travis.


Last, but certainly not least, is Dan Couture. You came on the last day to help your dad. You were a big help. Your dad would not have gotten done with the job early if you had not helped him. You are a very nice man, truly, and it was a pleasure to meet you. You too are very friendly. Thank you Dan.


You, undoubtedly, have noticed I have used the word "friendly" for each of your people. That is because, besides the great workmanship you do, being friendly with your customers is what makes a company great. And great is Nicholas and Son! On the last day I surprised myself by having tears in my eyes when Jerry and Dan were packing everything up to leave. Mixed emotions, I suspect, sad to see them leave but happy our house is done, except for the gutters, and looks so beautiful. I'm sure the men who will be putting on the gutters are just as good at their work as the rest of your employees.


So to Mark, Sue, Bill, Jon, Jerry, Ronnie, Travis and Dan, Dana and I thank you very much for making our house the nicest looking house on Hilliard Street.


I don't think I've ever said this before to anyone - It has truly been a pleasure doing business with you.


Rest assured when we get our new windows or need a new roof we will be calling Nicholas and Son.


Very Sincerely,

Dana and Shirley C.


Dear Mark, Sue & Company,


It's always nice to write a thank you letter, but this one was especially easy to do. Though we have told you several times over the phone and in person just how much we love the new and improved look of our home, we wanted to be added to your file of satisfied customers.


It's a real pleasure to work with a company of people who have integrity and also enjoy what they are doing. Every person who worked on our house was a real professional in their work and their work ethics. They are all gentlemen and assets to your team.


Jon is truly a great salesman. He helped us make some decisions about things we hadn't even thought about. He was also very patient when I changed my mind about the new doors after looking through the door catalog more closely.


Ron did a great job installing the doors and came back one time to make a minor adjustment. He knew exactly what the problem was and had it fixed in no time at all.


Travis is probably one of the hardest working young guys we have ever met. Talk about someone with integrity....he sure has it. There were some pretty hot, steamy days that he worked nonstop. I got tired just watching him!


Jerry and Dan were great to have here for the duration. Jerry is a real craftsman, whose work is reflected in those little touches on the house. Dan worked right alongside his Dad and was fun to have around.


We have had many compliments on how the house looks and you can be sure that your company will be recommended to any and all who ask 'who did your house?'.


Thanks again for everything.
