About Kuhl’s Contracting
At the risk of sounding snooty, the best way to figure out who we are is to talk to your friends, family and neighbors. Having been around this long there’s a very good chance we have worked with someone you know. That’s why the vast majority of our work is done through personal referral. (Ever noticed the inverse relationship between company quality and advertising budgets in the construction world?). We frequently become friends with our clients and consequently have a long list of smiling people you can speak to.
But let’s say that you are a random prospective client who just stumbled across us. One purpose of this site is to give you a sense of who we are, of our character as people and how you might benefit from our diverse range of passions and talents. So dig in. Kick the tires. Explore.
Kuhl’s Contracting History
In 1987, Steve Kuhl founded Kuhl’s Contracting from the basement of his parents home in Minnetonka. He set out to create a little something different in the roofing industry. Now, almost 30 years later, his company has grown up to include many aspects of residential roofing with an emphasis on cedar roofing. Steve Kuhl is a nationally recognized leader in the field of cedar roofing and teaches home inspectors and insurance adjusters how to inspect cedar roofs. He is what you would call a certified cedar roof geek.
Around 1997, Steve expanded his expertise beyond roofing. He partnered with Dan Murphy and started Kuhl Design + Build, a full service residential design/build remodeling company. Although much larger than Kuhl’s Contracting, Kuhl Design + Build has maintained a spirit of intimacy in how it approaches remodeling projects. It employs two architects, one interior designer, four project managers, five carpenters and a hand full of administrative staff, all dedicated to the idea of providing the most enjoyable design and remodeling experience possible.
Kuhl Design+Build Showroom
Please stop by for a visit. You will see that we are in love with everything house, as evidenced by the collection of material and product samples and hundreds of photos of our work mounted on the walls. We decided to purchase our own building in 2002 because renting didn’t feel like something a stable company does. We have dedicated blood, sweat and tears and more sweat to improving our space over the years but we may never be done. That’s okay. We encourage everyone we work with to stop by and kick the tires. Introduce yourself to the people of Kuhl, get a sense for who we are and what we do. Look at roofing, siding or window samples and more.
