About our Founder

At 14 years old, Kelley Nichols began painting with his father.  By the time he finished high school, he was determined to learn about all the different aspects of construction, so he enrolled in California’s Fullerton College where he studied Construction Technology.

Kelley NicholsMoving to Texas in 1983, Kelley began framing residential homes.  By 1984, he had founded his first company, Nichols Construction & Remodeling.  He truly fell in love with building and remodeling.  His knowledge expanded as he went to work in all phases of residential remodeling:  plumbing, electrical, HVAC, drywall, tile, flooring, and more.  In 1993, he returned to California and built his construction and remodeling company in San Jose.

After 30 years in the industry, Kelley has not lost his love for remodeling homes.  If you ask him he will tell you that his most important lessons came from working with his father:  treat every homeowner with respect, do every job with integrity, and build every home as if your own family might someday live in it.
