ACH Construction began in February 2005. Owner James Arledge began his career in construction while working his way through Paris Junior College. He began working in commercial and residential construction in 1992, working his way up to Superintendent and then as Project Manager, for various construction companies, in and around the Dallas Metroplex area.
In 2005 James went out on a limb to establish his own business, in Mount Pleasant, Texas, bringing with him the expertise and knowledge of all aspects of the construction business. James has created a niche, competitive business of building custom homes, townhome complexes, as well as small commercial constructions for major food chains, doctor's offices, and even hotels. He believes the reason for his success is primarily due to his motto of business - "Happy customers make a happy community". James believes his customer's satisfaction is a top priority, before, during, and even after the building experience.
I would like to take the time to thank everyone involved with ACH for the job done through the purchase of our new house. My wife and I were looking for a place to retire eventually in the country and were fortunate to find our beautiful house built by James and his team. The entire process of working with James before and after closing has been great. He does his job with integrity and professionalism and was and still is a pleasure to work with. It's very rare with a "builder" to be as personable and we are very blessed to have purchased our house with him. If you are looking for a quality home built with attention to detail and want to work with someone who really enjoys what he does then I highly recommend James and his team at ACH. Thank you again James for everything you have done and I am glad that Karen and I made the choice we made. Thank you more than anything for being our "friend".

Michael and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved at ACH Construction for helping us build our dream home. As first-time builders, we had reservations going into this process. James and his staff made us feel comfortable and guided us through the while construction project. Michael and I could not have been happier with the quality and workmanship that James put into our home. He made specific additions that we felt made our home truly feel special and one of a kind. We really appreciate his ability to guide us with suggestions based on our preferences. James also made the process of building easy and fun. We were always kept informed of progress and he kept us ahead of the game. There were no requests that were too small and no questions that were unanswered. James was always available to answer questions and was quick to resolve issues. There is no job to big or too small for James Arledge. He is truly a gifted builder, and we would recommend ACH Construction for your next building project.

When we decided to build a home, people warned us that it was going to be "one of the toughest tests in our marriage." James Arledge proved them all wrong and made it such an enjoyable experience. He has years of experience building luxury homes, and we found him to be very dependable. He understood that fact that we wanted to have a "hands on approach," and was very attentive and respectful of our wishes. James has pride in his work and you see it in the finished product. We are enjoying the beautiful home that James built for us and we have recommended him to several of our friends.

We have built a number of homes over the years with other contractors and working with James Arledge has been by far the most pleasant experience of all. James was very professional, easy to work with, always readily available and brought a wealth of new ideas and suppliers. The quality of materials, laborers and craftsmanship he brought to our home was above our expectations, which were high! James consistently kept us informed of costs and work schedules. There were no unpleasant surprises, additional costs, delays or disappointments at any time. If we weren't so happy with our home now, we would have James build us another!

We recently completed construction on our new home and I couldn't have been more pleased with the result. Not only were we pleased with the finished product but the building experience as well. James operates in an upfront and open manner. I always appreciate and enjoy working with honest people. Having a contractor you can trust is the most important aspect of a building project. James is experienced, knowledgeable, responsive and fun to work with. I would encourage anyone considering a building project to meet with James and his team.
In the last few years ACH Construction has helped me with several different projects. My first experience was with my residence, at which I was very happy with the way the details were handled, it made my home building a pleasant experience. ACH helped me make important decisions I couldn't have made on my own.
Since ACH was such a great help on my home, I turned to ACH for a second project that involved a Convenience store, again surprising me with vast knowledge and expertise, I was pleased with their performance.
My most recent project with ACH was a Mobile gas station and Arby's restaurant, which proved to be a big challenge for me, but I knew ACH could meet the challenge with expertise, knowledge and excellent craftsmanship, as well as finding the right people to do the job. I would recommend and turn to ACH for any future building needs I have. From start to finish of each building experience, regardless of the task, ACH met and exceeded my expectations.
