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.

Dear Mr. Arledge,
I want to thank you and your staff for building my family’s dream vacation home in Mt. Vernon, Texas. This project started back in July 2020 when my wife and I acquired 2-acre corner property on the corner of US HWY 67 and CR 2040. At first, we thought securing a general contractor that we can trust was going to be a herculean task until you introduced yourself to me on a Saturday morning in October 2020.
I was impressed by your professionalism and transparency of how you provide service. My neighbor highly recommended ACH Construction as well.
Here are five items I was impressed by during our 6-month building process:
Professionalism: You have always been very professional with me and my family’s request during the building process. This was very important to me. Colten (Superintendent) was very professional as well.
Communication: This by far is your company’s strong suit. I have received routine calls on the construction progress including delays, price issues, adjustments and selection request.
Draw Process: I really enjoyed the draw process so I can keep a close eye on my budget and bank expectations. We completed our project under budget and on time with some minor hiccups.
Sub-Contractors: The sub-contractors did a very good work in craftsmanship and execution. When there were misunderstanding, each sub-contraction called me with clarifying questions.
Clean Up and Follow Up: Your company’s clean up and follow up is second to none. The property was always maintained during and after the construction process.
Once again, thank you for building my family’s dream vacation home.
