Travis joined with his father, Gary Horney, in 1992 to create Quality Builders, Inc. Gary had run his own construction company, Gary Horney Construction, since March, 1973. They ran Quality Builders together until August, 2006, when Gary retired from the family business.
Travis Horney has been around the construction business all his life. He has also worked with a local building supply business that taught him another aspect of the construction business. Strong character traits of honesty, integrity and hard work ethics were instilled in him by his father, mother and grandparents. He was born and raised in the Banner Elk area with deep roots, so his company and family are firmly planted in this area. He is also a father of two sons and husband to a wonderful Christian woman.
Quality Builders Inc. is strongly committed to keeping up to date with the latest building laws, materials, and equipment. Travis tries to be on each of his jobs everyday and is involved in the actual physical work in addition to his supervision duties. He feels that this is very important for several reasons. First, he is very particular about the quality of his company's work and second, he thoroughly enjoys the construction business and providing his customer with the best possible quality home.
