About Allied Millwork of Pgh.
Allied Millwork of Pittsburgh has been a family owned and operated business since its establishment in 1950. Located in Lawrenceville, at 3206 Penn Ave; we are a part of Pittsburgh’s acclaimed 16:62 Design Zone.
This industrious millwork establishment is a small custom sash and door shop, very similar to what existed in most major cities a century ago. We fabricate architectural and historic doors and windows. Dedicated to creating the highest quality product, we employ only the most knowledgeable and skilled craftsmen from an array of woodworking backgrounds. Remaining a small team of four enables us to have a great amount of flexibility and offer a beautifully handcrafted final product at a competitive price.
Where we've been
As the recipient of several historic preservation awards we have been recognized for our exceptional restoration skills, from colonial 1800’s farmhouses in Ohio to government buildings in Maryland. And, of course, Allied Millwork is highly acclaimed for its historical replication skills in and around the city of Pittsburgh.
Our studio has provided goods destined for historic projects in Ohio, Kentucky, Georgia, Maryland, New York and throughout Pennsylvania. We have been involved in new structures as far away as Westport, Connecticut and Nantucket Island, Massachusetts.
Our focus is here in western Pennsylvania, and we have participated in the restoration of such Pittsburgh landmarks as the Heinz History Center, Penn Pilsner Brewery, the South Side Market House, and several buildings in the Penn Liberty Cultural District, amongst others. Many historic buildings in neighborhoods such as Lawrenceville, South Side, and North Side/Manchester – along with beautiful homes in areas such as Shadyside, Squirrel Hill, Highland Park, Sewickley, Fox Chapel, and Oakmont have been keeping us busy!
Allied Millwork has supplied windows and doors for buildings for many of our esteemed colleges and universities, including: Carnegie Mellon, Chatham, Washington and Jefferson, Waynesburg, University of Pittsburgh, and Duquesne. As you can see in our picture galleries (click here to view) we have – and continue to – provide windows and doors for many of the area’s historic churches.
The Pittsburgh Post Gazette as well as Pittsburgh magazine, have featured numerous projects that we have been involved in.
We manufacture a very diverse range of products and work with a wide variety of professionals including architects, contractors, and even the homeowners themselves. In contrast to the modern window and door industry which constructs it’s windows using limited lifespan materials and engineering, Allied Millwork prides itself on excellence and the superior craftsmanship exhibited through solid wood windows and doors
Locally owned and operated, Allied Millwork supports other local small businesses whenever possible; we even recycle our saw dust with a regional farmer, which, later as compost is utilized by a neighboring landscape company.
Wood, in and of itself is a green product: it is renewable and inherently insulating. Wood windows and doors require 1/3 the energy of vinyl windows to produce, and 1/4 that of aluminum products!
Our materials are harvested in areas under sustained yield management programs. We only deal with well established, reputable suppliers that comply with all of the ITTO, TFF, and CITE standards.
Our products are designed so that given proper maintenance, they will have a lifetime far exceeding those produced by mass manufacturers.
We will work closely with you to ensure that exacting designs are executed to your complete satisfaction, and offer a level of service that only a small company such as Allied Millwork can provide.
