“I recently asked STB to paint my stucco house with an elastomeric polymer paint. Not only was the service from Kent Nichols very professional, the quality of work and courtesy of their employees exceptional, the elastomeric paint was one of the best investments I made to the house. After the pressure washing, sealing and two coats of this paint, I expect it to be maintenance free except for an occasional washing for at least a decade. Thanks again, STB and Kent.”

"My wife and I searched for a competent contractor to assist us with a major remodel for our home. We replaced all the exterior siding with Certainteed cement fiber siding and a complete remodel in the kitchen and master bath. Working with STB was truly a pleasure. The integrity of STB and interest in detail and quality was just what we were looking for. The delivery of the subs at the times announced throughout the project was especially appreciated and unique for any contractor. We recommend STB for any remodel project no matter how large or small.”

It has been my privilege to work with Kent Nichols at STB numerous times over the last 10 years or so. As a real estate broker, I’ve represented clients who have used STB for stucco specific inspections, wind mitigation inspections and for repair/renovation work on homes they were selling or buying. STB has proved in every instance to be professional, competent, dependable and reasonably priced. Recently performed wind mitigation inspections provided by STB have saved my clients tons of money…thousands in some cases…on their windstorm policies. As a stucco inspection/repair specialist, Kent has proved to be extremely knowledgeable and thorough always making sure the customer is fully informed every step of the way and completely satisfied with the results of the work performed. I will continue to recommend Kent Nichols and STB as an experienced local general contractor.

We heard from Kent that a Windstorm Mitigation Inspection would help us determine ways to ensure the strength of our property and could save us money on our annual wind storm policy. We ended up saving more than $500 on our annual wind policy, and more importantly, Kent identified several ways we could further protect our home. He also detected some significant roof tile damage from a low-hanging tree limb which could have caused considerable problems. All in all, Kent was professional and very helpful – and he helped us save money and protect our biggest investment – our HOME!

Thanks for the really great work you did on our home in Santa Rosa Shores. You transformed the whole look of the house, with the stucco columns and the stucco around the windows. You brought our 1978 ranch style house into the 21st century. We have had several real estate agents and neighbors stop and remark about the curb appeal that we now have. Our house is a corner lot so it has a high profile. We even got yard of the month after your work!!!
You and your crew were great! The work was done on time, and extremely professional. You gave us a true value for the cost! You guys really cared how it turned out. I have, and will continue to recommend you for any home improvement projects. STB is the company you can TRUST! Please feel free to send any of your prospects by to see the work. We live at 1174 Harbor Lane (corner of Harbor Lane and Hillside)

We have used the wind mitigation inspection services of STB on several occasions to inspect houses that we had sprayed hurricane foam adhesive under the roof deck. The adhesive qualifies for an insurance discount for wind uplift and deck reinforcement. Our customers were impressed by STB's professionalism and knowledge. We appreciated the quick service. Insurance discounts were obtained. Thanks Kent for your great work!

My husband and I used STB Stucco on the advice of our builder, John Williams, and we are very glad we took John's advice. Kent, the owner of STB, and his staff were very patient in explaining the stucco process and the costs involved. His wife, Gloria, held my hand as I agonized over the color choices, and the end product was everything I had hoped for. Kent was one of the first people we called after Hurricane Ivan damaged our home. He and his team responded promptly and worked diligently to rebuild and repair walls and match the color and texture of the existing stucco which was no easy process. We can comfortably recommend STB Stucco and would definitely choose them should we ever decide to build again.

I am pleased to recommend STB and Kent Nichols to anyone needing renovation, restoration or repair. Kent and his team have been doing renovation and stucco work on our home for eight years. He and his crews are very professional, courteous and prompt. Their pricing is very fair and I know that their work is done well and on time. It is so nice to deal with someone like Kent who I know will handle my repair needs fairly and honestly. I highly recommend him to you.

"I'd have to say that in all of my dealings with subcontractors, Kent Nichols (STB Stucco) runs his business like a business. You know what to expect when you go to him with a job or question and you know the work will be handled in the most professional manner possible. In an industry where things are very subject to sometimes very loose interpretation, it is refreshing to find someone who is truly dependable and a pleasure to do business with. In my dealings with STB, I've never had to come back and say but I thought we agreed to do 'so and so'. Everything has always been executed as originally agreed to with no exception. That is a welcome and rare quality in the building trades.

We just wanted to thank you for the outstanding job your company did with the repairs on our home. The workmanship was phenomenal and your crews were very friendly. The thing we appreciate most about working with you is the communication and attention to detail that everyone in your company adheres to. From the proposal, to scheduling the work, to completion and follow-up, we knew what to expect throughout the entire process and the end product exceeded our expectations. We have recommended you in the past and will continue to do so. Thanks again and we'll be in touch next time our money pit comes a callin' (which I'm sure won't be very long).

I have had the privilege of knowing Kent Nichols for almost a decade. During that time, Kent and his team at STB Stucco have provided my home with first-class, dependable products and services. After Hurricane Ivan, Kent personally brought his ladder to my home and inspected, patched, and repaired our stucco within days. His knowledge and expertise with stucco is unparalleled. More recently, STB replaced our rusted-out, steel entry door with a beautiful, fiberglass door in a wood-grain finish. Most importantly, Kent Nichols is an honest business owner with integrity to spare. I highly recommend Kent for any and all home renovations.

Dear Kent,
STB was a highly recommended company by word of mouth, by other home owners who had used their services.....and they lived up to their reputation! Living out-of-state and working on the upkeep of property in Gulf Breeze, Florida has its challenges. Kent Nichols reviewed the property restoration requests, inspected the property, and made some additional observations and suggestions. His work was done excellently, within the time frame he promised, and within the budget we had agreed upon. He followed up with requests for customer satisfaction, and acted on those requests. He was courteous as a contractor and knowlegable in his repair work; we found him to be honest and up-front in his dealing with us. In addition, his recommendations for additional on-site pool maintenance...who been used and found to be good recommendations. We appreciate the work done; it made a big difference in the over all appearance of the home.

"We were extremely impressed with how quickly STB responded to our request for a wind mitigation inspection; we had our inspection the next day! The report was provided during the visit and emailed to our insurer. Truly a professional operation from the first call. We were glad we made the call."

Two thumbs up for STB Restoration, Repair & Maintenance, Inc. Our home was nearly destroyed by two sets of renters. On very short notice, STB Restoration came in and installed a new slate tile floor in the kitchen, repaired a water leak inside an interior wall, repaired wall damage above the fireplace, painted the kitchen cabinets, and replaced an exterior door. The work was done in less than two weeks and just in time for the movers to fill up the house with furniture. STB Restoration worked with us to develop a new kitchen floor layout that tied into the front entrance and we are extremely happy with how it turned out. Their employees were very professional and the quality of their work was exceptional. We highly recommend STB Restoration for any project you might have.

I sold my 3 story stucco house in the summer of 2009. STB Restoration came out and did the stucco inspection. Wow. what a great job! Kent Nichols, the owner, saw to the job personally. He was on time, very efficient and knowledgeable. The buyer had been given some miss information about the stucco on the home; Kent quickly set the record straight and eliminated the buyer's concerns. Kent's report was professional and easy to understand. . The repairs Kent suggested were made and the buyer was happy with the results and I was happy to move closer to eventually selling the home.. Thanks for a job well done, Kent

I have been doing business with Kent Nichols and his restoration business for close to ten years. I am a realtor and many times over the years I have needed to have a stucco inspection done on houses I had for sale. Kent and his crew were always my first choice. They presented themselves so well--their dress their equipment-- it was always right, and then it turns out their work was outstanding. In 2004 my home on the water was badly damaged by Hurricane Ivan. It was a devastating time. Kent Nichols and his crew came to my rescue. He not only brought my beautiful house back, he brought it back better than before. It has always been a pleasure to do business with him. He's smart and always has knowledge about the newest and best products. I'm delighted to recommend Kent and his stucco and restoration company.

I do not live in Pensacola but purchased a retirement home in Pensacola. The home inspection indicated there might be a problem with water flow off the roof into the internal structure behind the stucco. Not being familiar with Pensacola, I ask both the inspector and the firm checking for internal structural water damage as to a company to make repairs, both stated Kent Nichols of STB Building.
Kent is a professional, knowledgeable, diligent, and obviously has a great reputation (neither individual knew Kent, but “heard” he produced quality results). The skills and craftsmanship of the STB work crews made quick and beautiful repairs to the home. The workers cleaned up each day, and them selves were tidy in appearance and were not hired off a street corner as I frequently encounter here in Texas.
My wife and I were thoroughly impressed with Kent’s final product and reasonable charges. We plan to have him make modifications to our home when we move to Pensacola in the summer of 2010.
As an aside, I frequently deal with general contractors, and they can be emotionally draining, work progress flows like molasses, and require more supervision than one can imagine. These are reputable businesses in Austin and San Antonio. I often wonder how they maintain a reputation as a reliable business. I felt totally comfortable with Kent’s management of sub contractors. My wife and I were left to be free to do whatever we wanted with no desire to be looking over someone’s shoulder or wondering if someone was going to show up to work. Kent, thank you for your help.

In June 2008, STB Restoration evaluated and provided remedial recommendations for my Ono Island, AL home. The home's EFIS was stregthened with an Elastomeric coating applied by STB Restoration. I live in California and returned January 2010 for the first time since the Elastomeric coating was applied. I was amazed that after eighteen months the house looked as if the Elastomeric coating had just been applied. The quality of work provided by STB is what all home owners expect. Additionally, when I needed to get the color codes of the coating for touching up areas impacted by new tile work on the porch, STB had the records available. My experience with STB Restoration has been positive and I would recommend their services to any home owner.

When we needed to remodel our new administration and sales offices, we engaged STB as our general contractor. Throughout the process STB acted professionally and made sure the work was completed on time and on budget.

Kent had told me about the benefits of having a Wind Mitigation Inspection and how it would lower my insurance cost. I thought I knew all of the things I needed to do to mitigate wind damage and lower my premiums, but I DID NOT. What a great opportunity that we all have to learn AND save substantial amounts of money! I saved about $800 on my wind policy. The inspection was professional and non-intrusive, and very affordable. STB will remain my preferred consultant for wind mitigation and waterproofing. Thanks!
