About Us, Biography of a General Contractor
A little about me and us.....
Hello, my name is Allan Barbe Jr. I'm proud to say I'm the owner, sole proprietor, and operator of A2 Quality Home Improvement. It keeps me very busy working in the field daily with my crew while running business while I can. I find I spend most my time in the evenings doing paperwork in front of the television. LOL.
A2 Quality Home Improvement in 2011 with the intent to provide clients not only with skilled craftsman for their project needs, but also to bring back that blatant, "good 'ol handshake" type of honesty that has long been amiss in this modern era we share.
Since then that ideal has proven to be the cement which binds us and makes us grow.
Our Mission is to offer: "Quality Craftsmanship for an honest price"
It can be a daunting process to find an honest, competent, and reliable contractor these days. It seems like there are so many persons out there now who just through a tool box in the back of their truck and call themselves a contractor. Many a project has focused on repairing their mistakes.
I am confident, given the opportunity you will find that your search is over with A2 Quality Home Improvement. We will service your project needs like no other has for years to come.
Are mission stands even more true today as it did with our first client. We will do everything we can to meet and hopefully exceed your expectations. With a variety of services to choose from, we can handle just about any project you have in mind.
The person you speak to on the phone or meets you to gather the information needed to provide you with a Free* consultation is also the person doing the work. No salesmen, No worries about being sold something and hoping the crew that shows up can actually do the job. I will always be there myself, with trained professionals, and deliver what we promised. On time and within budget.

Keen eye for detail, problems solving, and good communication skills are what I believe to be my greatest strengths. We always go the extra mile with our clients. If its something small that we see needs done that is within our means to take care of while doing a project.... we typically just take care of it no charge (assuming we have the extra materials and it won't take long). I want every client to like us, tell their friends an co-workers about us, and be happy with the service we provide, more-over proud of it. Then refer us to their friends and post great reviews about our company, the work we do and the manner in which it's conducted. That being said, the point is I'm bluntly honest, we are transparent in what we do. We are very good at it, and we really enjo it. The most important thing I think I can say to any prospective client is the I will say what I do, and do what I say. I'll do everything I can to make sure every client is completely satisfied with the work we provide. Anything less is simply not acceptable in my book.
