Julius B. Nelson & Son is your commercial painting and decorating contractor that has been doing business in the Twin Cities and upper Midwest since 1942.

In our 70 plus years’ history, we have performed taping, painting, wood finishing, wall covering and special coating work on thousands of projects, including schools, churches, office buildings, warehouse facilities, retail locations, medical facilities and hotels. For our entire history, we have employed only union tradespeople with a total crew size of 40-65 journeymen and apprentices. The office consists of seven people divided into administration, field superintendents, and project managers.

Some of the major projects we have been involved with include Breck School, Methodist Birth Center, Carleton College Evans Hall, U of M Nano Technology, Children’s Hospital Expansion, Phoenix-on-the-River, Methodist Emergency Center, St. Joseph’s Hospital Expansion, Wal-Mart, Rogers Ice Arena, and countless tenant remodel projects.

We are most proud of our loyal customer base, our longevity, and the fact that many of our employees retire from our firm with over 30 years of service to our company and the painting and decorating industry.
