A Brush Above is an Aggie owned & operated sub-contracting company that provides commercial drywall services, painting, and other specialty services, such as pressure-washing and carpet/tile removal. Located in the BCS area, we also service surrounding regions. We are committed to doing whatever it takes to recognize and deliver each client’s unique dream.
Thomas Rodgers started A Brush Above while attending Texas A&M to pay college expenses; working out of the back of his truck. His customers were quickly impressed by his high-quality work and his excellent reputation spread like wildfire. Soon ABAS grew from a small, humble business into a widely praised company that was acquiring more and more high-profile jobs. In 2011, Thomas partnered with Daniel Krueger, who leads the drywall division, and A Brush Above grew a whopping 499.25% growth between 2014 and 2016. The company still grows rapidly.
Perhaps A Brush Above's most impressive feat is the sheer number of jobs the company has successfully completed. It's impossible to navigate in the BCS area without passing hundreds of projects that ABAS has completed. From small residential homes to large-scale projects like Baylor Scott & White hospital, ABAS has successfully done it all. Whether it be refining the delicate beauty of fine-dining restaurants like The Republic 1836, renovating a cherished dorm at Texas A&M University, or installing beautiful ornate ceilings in Reed Arena locker rooms.
Despite its growth, ABAS has remained true to the same foundation it was built on: customer service. We are known for delivering exceptional quality, innovative solutions, and timely completions. We are firmly committed to helping both clients and partners achieve successful results with every project we do. "You're only as good as the last job you completed," Thomas once said, and we strive to embody that concept on a daily basis.
