About Us


A.R.A. Home Remodeling began in April of 1989 owned and operated by Albert R Alexander as a highly skilled Builder-Remodeler, performing jobs like roofing, small additions, porches, decks and bathroom remodeling.

It wasn't until June of 1992 the company did strictly interior bathroom remodeling. Since that period of time the company grew to nine employees and three skilled crews and showroom. It wasn't until January of 1996 as a major request from all his previous customers requesting kitchen remodeling, Albert decided to honor their requests.

Since then the company is best known for, quality kitchen, bathroom and basement remodeling projects done by his professionally trained employees. What customers liked most about us, we don't use sub-contractors, all the work was done in house from start to finish and done in a timely fashion.
In 1998 the company joined the HBA ­Remodelers Assoc. of the valley and Albert became a Board of Director in 1990, where he held that position until he semi-retired in 2015. He was also the Chairman of the Remodelers council as well for over ten years.

A.R.A. Home Remodeling has become highly recognized through-out the valley as your # 1 rated Remodeler and a title it still holds strong today. Let's not forget it's A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Albert has also sits on the advisory board for New Castle School of Trades for several years, and is the major sponsor of the Building Construction department.

During all his years, his company as earned four Remodeler Of The Year Awards, which has never been achieved before in the state of Ohio, as the Vern Ostovich Remodeler Of The Year award in 2004, 2007, 2008 and again in 2011.

We also have won two HBA Community Service Awards in 2013 and 2015.

In October of 2015 Albert decided to semi-retire and scaled back to just one crew headed by his son Anthony and longtime employee Dennis doing the majority of work. Albert clearly admits all the awards the company has achieved throughout the years would not have happened nor been possible without the major help of his son and highly skilled employees.

What sets A.R.A. apart from its competitors, is we take total pride in our work, we're honest with our customers, we don't play games, we maintain a clean work area and we complete the work to our customers 100% satisfaction. But most importantly they "trust us" in their homes. Albert's full intentions is to turn the company over to his son Anthony when he totally retires someday, or as Al's wife Wendy says, he'll never stop. Al's very much appreciative for his lovely wife's support and sacrifices all these years.
