Kris Anderson writes –

Originally had problem with a water softener, Rick Nelson was able to not only fix in same day, but also took care several other plumbing problems at same visit. Upon his prompt service, education and competitive pricing, I have found both himself and company to be one of, if not the only company I’d call in Waterford/Clarkston area. Thank you very much for all your excellent work”

Doug Stranahan writes –

I have used Nelson Plumbing & Heating for well over fifteen years to service my heating and plumbing needs at various property locations. If Rick is on another job, he sends one of his long time employee’s, who have always been “spot on” with their ability to get the job done. Dan did just that yesterday and was able to quickly analyze the problem, which we were then able to fix on our own…I like that kind of honest approach.”

Having owner operated experts, like Rick providing knowledgeable and expert care is an asset to Waterford and Oakland County, MI.

Rarely acknowledged are business owners like Rick Nelson that employ people and ensure their staff are paid continuously. Sure, people earn their wages through their time, hard work and skills, but let’s take a moment and thank Rick for having and continuing the business ownership game that allows people an opportunity to produce and earn those wages.
