Dear Ron,

I have been very remiss in getting back to you on the below items. I apologize. We’ve been extremely busy getting ready for our 50th wedding anniversary and having about 75 people over to our home to celebrate at the end of this month. Seems like I found a whole list of things to fix or change for this event.

The vendor did show up in early March from the thousand oaks office. Took vendor 15 or 20 minutes to install new rollers in the sliding glass door. They did a great job and mentioned they had done others in the LaVerne area that same week. Thank you again for being such a great advocate on my behalf with the vendor. We can now safely exit the house, other than the front and garage doors, without trying to dead left a 300 lb. door with worn out rollers.

I am happy to refer you to people around. In fact, I mentioned a referral to you way back in Feb, regarding our neighbor’s looking into possibilities for new windows for their La Verne home.

Next time I see them I hope to find out what they are thinking of for windows, or anyone else in the neighborhood for that matter.

Thanks again for all your help on my vendor problem.

Headed and managed “hands on” by Mr. Nelson, this firm provided excellent quality in workmanship, materials, and communication. My glass paned wooden French door assembly was destroyed by a vehicle collision and as the repair progressed, I realized how lucky I was to have found California Design Wood Products in an online search to do the job. Mr. Nelson came to my place twice to photograph and get an exact evaluation of the damage, take exact measurements and to discuss the repair approach in person. He promptly delivered a professional estimate to my insurance company which was readily accepted. Once that was settled, he built the new doors in his shop and delivered/installed them on time with no issues. From the first phone call with him to the last touch of the finisher’s brush, I could not have asked for smoother, better quality workmanship, timeliness, or communication with me and my insurance company.

California Design Wood Products returned my destroyed doors to their original condition with personable, efficient, top quality service; they are a company that I am happy to “have on-hand” for any project and I would not hesitate to call them again.

Dear Ron,

This is a note to commend you for your company on the professionalism and workmanship related to our installation of windows and sliding door. Not only were you able to order us high quality materials and an attractive price, but the installer and dry wall specialists were among the most efficient and polite workers we have had the opportunity to observe.

It has been a pleasurable experience working with you and your employees. We will certainly recommend your company to friends and neighbors when the occasion arises.


Dear Association,

We are homeowners in The Springs. In March we had California Design replace all the windows in our home in The Springs. Ron Nelson is president of this company. He did a great job for us (as he has for Ray W. and Roberts S., also homeowners in The Springs.) Ron was able to do our job in a timely manner and gave us good service.

Because of the good service we received from California Design we would like to recommend having California Design placed on the Homeowners Service list for any homeowners who may desire to replace their old single-paned windows.


Hi Ron,

Thank you so much. We will be anxious to meet with the designer you located. We plan to be in the desert by the first week in January. If he would like to make direct contact with us before then you should feel free to give him our e-mail information. We plan to stay in California until the first week in May so we should have plenty of time to plan for work that can be done after we leave just like windows.

Thanks also for sending the warranty material which I have already mailed to you. You made is so easy! Marlene and I have owned a number of houses over the years and have done work with may contractors. Our experience with you from beginning to end has been the best working relationship we have ever had. Don’t hesitate to use us as a reference if that is ever appropriate and we look forward to working on future projects with you.

All our best,

California Design was professional and courteous, completed the job as quoted and in a timely manner. All of its employees were personable, courteous and knew what they were doing. One small problem occurred after the installation and the company promptly resolved the problem.

I highly recommend California Design.

When we hired Ron Nelson and California Design we not only established a working relationship with an excellent contractor but we also made a good friend. California Design put in all new windows and sliders for us and then supervised a full patio remodel in the front and back of our home.

We are now having Ron and his company remodel the interior of our home. I could not have asked for a better contractor and partner than Ron and California Design.

I have already recommended his firm to others and I wouldn’t hesitate to do so in the future.

It is a pleasure to write a review on the above business. This company, owned by Ron Nelson, has actually replaced all the windows in two different condos that we owned. This includes a total of six sliding doors and 15 windows. They also extended and exterior wall and installed a side door in the garage.

The staff are very skilled, knowledgeable and friendly. Ron Nelson was very easy to work with and had good suggestions. He has been in this business for several years and it shows.

I would highly recommend this company for any project that they are able to do.
