The Teekell family has figured prominently in the Texas home improvement market for almost three decades, founding Allied Siding & Windows in 1988 and opening the doors on Allied Outdoor Solutions in September of 2009. Originally operating exclusively in Houston, we have since expanded Allied Outdoor Solutions across the state and beyond in response to wider demand. Even as some of the faces and locations have changed through the years, we are proud to maintain the same core competencies: providing homeowners with beautiful products and great customer service at a fair market price. We are grateful for the projects homeowners entrust to us, and we go above and beyond so they know their trust was well placed. We look forward to continued growth, one home at a time.
What does it mean to be “Built Different”? It means Allied Outdoor Solutions takes pride in being, well, just a bit different than other construction firms. We make our tough decisions easier—and sometimes, tougher—by putting integrity at the center of our decision-making processes. We surprise clients with the transparency of our operations. We respect our clients’ intelligence by providing them with detailed literature and information on our processes and products. We never get comfortable with the quality of our builds: we think meeting our own high standards just means it’s time to find higher ones. We’re hyper-focused on doing what’s right even when it doesn’t make us popular. We’re okay with being different, in the end, because we want to provide more than just a high quality construction project: we want to make a difference in the lives of our colleagues, our clients, and our community. We hope you decide to entrust us with your project and discover for yourselves what it means to be “Built Different.”
“I really liked the guys who did the stonework. They were really, really nice and very polite. They did good work, too. They did Carvestone around the pool deck in our backyard. They sat and explained everything that they were doing. Because my kids were trying to watch them, they even explained it to my kids, who are three and five. They were really good with them. They were awesome.”
“Allied Outdoor did some work for me. They put in Carvestone on top of an existing cement patio that we had, and they also did the sidewalk around the garage. Everything has held up fine so far. We had them come back and work on some edges, and so far, everything’s OK. I’d give them an A.”
“Allied Outdoor did a great job. They worked on my patio. The workers did good work and had a fast response, so that gets an A.”
“I worked with my pool guy, he contracted Allied Outdoor Solutions to come in and do the patio around the pool. They did a beautiful job. Everything looked good.”
“They were attentive to what I wanted done and did it, and when I needed a little bit of follow-up, they were on it promptly and quickly. They were also good about cleaning up the job site each night. Their customer service was excellent.”
“Allied Outdoor Solutions did patio work for me. They were prompt and professional, and the quality was well done. I’d rate them an A.”
“Allied did foundation work here. Five or six guys showed up to do the work and they did a good job. They were good, fast, hard workers. They arrived on time and completed the work within the time frame that they said they would. And so far, the work has held up great.”
“They’re A+. I liked their professionalism and the way that they handled the project. They poured a slab outside, and then they put the overlay on the slab. They quality of work was very good, and their cleanup was exceptional-they didn’t destroy any of my grass. I’d recommend them highly.”
“We liked what they did with a neighbor’s yard, so we had them expand my back patio. And then they used Carvestone over the new patio and the existing patio. They had two different groups do the work-five guys to put the patio in and three to do the Carvestone. They started the work early, and they completed the work on time. So that deserves an A+.”
“They resurfaced our driveway. I called them, and they came out and did their presentation, which was informative. They gave us a lot of choices, and we felt we had control through the entire process, and we’re more than pleased with the finished product. Their working crew was very courteous, and they communicated well. They did Carvestone on our concrete. They got there on time, and they even went the extra mile and did extra for us that they didn’t need to do; they put a coating on our front porch and our back porch as well. That wasn’t part of the deal, and they did it for us.”
“Allied Outdoor Solutions went above and beyond, to be honest. They had scheduled to have the job start on a Thursday and be finished on a Tuesday, and when they found out it might rain the next week, they worked Saturday and Sunday instead to get it all done. They had an excellent crew-cleaned up everything really well and worked with us on everything. They were very, very good.”
“I highly recommend Allied Outdoor Solutions. My patio is now covered in what looks like slate, but it’s not – the workers did it in the concrete. The quality of their work was perfect.”
Drew received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, and has worked in many different facets of the construction industry: he spent a year building pools, two years pouring concrete, a year building houses, and even a short time in plumbing. All of this experience set him up well for a career managing these lines of work; and unsurprisingly, he is most passionate about our complex projects, the ones where all of the diverse expertise at Allied comes together to create something the homeowner is proud of.
