  • Operations

Allied was founded by Ralf Kuehn in 1997. Having already established several successful, client-focused businesses in Texas, Ralf brought his years of experience and entrepreneurial expertise to the Southeast Michigan market. He partnered with local and national home builders by providing them with rough carpentry services.

It didn’t take long for Allied to establish itself as a premier rough carpentry contractor in the area. What started as a one crew operation quickly expanded into a 12-crew machine over the course of only a couple years. One of the most impressive facets of the operation was its capacity to maintain its edge in quality even as it grew at such a rapid pace. Or, another way of saying it, quality was never compromised for quantity.

With our background in carpentry, we decided to try our hand at custom home building. We had to learn on the fly initially, but we always had satisfied customers. We have a reputation for keeping our word and doing exactly what we say we’re going to do. Which, of course, leads to happy customers. Due to our ability to tap into a quality trade base, we always built homes with the highest standards.

After a few lean years, due to the 2008 real estate crash, Allied reemerged as a major player in rough carpentry once again. As the economy welcomed home building back to the state of Michigan home builders were eager to reacquaint themselves with the sterling services that Allied provided; they remembered. Now, however, Allied’s success was no longer being spearheaded by Ralf alone. Ralf invited his three sons to join the ranks and take what he started to the next level. With a passion for home construction and renovation, Andrew, Christian, and Caleb linked arms and brought further diversification, by opening up an exterior renovations division that included Hardie resides, composite deck construction, window replacement/renovations, and more.

We believe that our dedication to an efficient processes is what has led to so many happy customers. There’s a step by step process behind everything we do, and we demand uniformity. For example, we will always clean up the jobsite at the end of every day. Whether we’re building you a new Trex composite deck or installing Hardie shakes, we require that our jobs be left clean and orderly at the end of every day. Our success is found in finding and meeting our customers’ needs and wants. From providing phenomenal warranties, to exceptional job performance, to providing top-of-the-line materials, to the nitty gritty logistical/scheduling details, Allied strives to be detailed in its approach and to ask questions about its clients wants and needs that few others are doing.
