Your Custom Design/Build Solution

Maile Custom Builders, Inc. (dba Maile, Tekulve & Gray), is a family owned and operated design / build business established in 1960 in Edgewood, Kentucky. Our reputation for exceptional quality, service, accountability and innovation began 55 years ago with Rich Maile’s Grandfather, Ed Maile. “Grandpa Ed” set the standard for accountability and workmanship that drives Maile, Tekulve & Gray to this day. He would be very proud to see how Rich, Mike and Michael have built upon the foundation he laid and how they continue to lead the industry in all aspects of the trade, illustrated most poignantly by their record of 100% repeat and referral business in the past ten years.

Rich grew up in the trades working for Grandpa Ed, and then his Father, Dick Maile, who owned the company from 1975 through 1992, when Rich took over.

Mike Tekulve, (Rich’s first cousin), also grew up learning the trades from Grandpa Ed, as well as his father Joe, until Rich took over in 1992 when Mike became the General Manager of Production.

Michael Gray earned his BS from the University of Kentucky - College of Architecture. In a concerted effort to not only master the architectural aspects of the business, but all of the various ‘hands-on’ field aspects of the business, Michael worked as a carpenter while earning his degree. Upon graduation, Michael joined the Maile team in 1994 as Senior Designer, a position he holds today.

In 2013, Mike and Michael were named partners at the company, and started doing business as Maile, Tekulve & Gray; and the 4th generation of the family tradition began, and continues …
