About Nickelson Painting

There may be a lot of brushes, paint and scaffolds around us, but Nickelson Painting is actually in the people & problem-solving business.

Nickelson Painting had a humble beginning. It was Bob Nickelson, a hatchback car, a few step ladders, and a storage unit as a “shop.” (There was a lot of coffee around, too. And there still is!)

Bob learned about people and problem-solving at a young age. His father always went the extra mile and put customer needs first at his TV-repair shop.

We’ve come a long way since Bob’s early days at Dad’s store. But our 1990 goal is nearly the same today: work with people and take care of them as we produce quality work through top-notch service.
