Over 1,600 custom patios in the past 15 years can now claim to be the homeowners’ favorite room because of Texas Custom Patios! We specialize in building outdoor living spaces, patio covers, screened porches, outdoor kitchens, room additions, sunrooms, outdoor fireplaces and pergolas.

We have been serving Greater Houston since 2004 and within the last few years have taken our services to the north Dallas area. A TCP project developer who lives and works in your area will meet with you at your home to discuss your project and begin working with you on your outdoor dream space. So you will always have someone close by as your go-to guy!

We create a design drawing so you can see what the project will actually look like on your home, taking away the guessing game. We custom design and build the outdoor living space to look original to the home, matching finishes, colors, existing brick, etc… We handle all HOA approvals and permits, so no stress there!

Taking Luxury Outdoors

July 28, 2019 Outdoor Living, Patio Design

Trending more and more each year is outdoor living, homeowners are now investing in a lifestyle that can be enjoyed on the exterior of the home. Life is short, so why not have your home be your own personal paradise. At Texas Custom Patios, we specialize in perfecting that outdoor living dream custom tailored to your home.

There are a few places where you can upgrade and take your outdoor living to the next level!

Outdoor Kitchens

Having a grill is nice, but having a built-in sizzler, sink and drink fridge is even nicer! We will custom build anything you want as long as it makes sense in the area that you would like. Meticulous detail goes into the design process so that you end up with something that is both beautiful and functional.

This kitchen is equipped with both a Big Green Egg and large gas grill, a microwave, a sink, plenty of storage and counter space. There is a full size fridge in the storage closet at the end of the space.

Technology

With the love for outdoor living becoming more popular, so has the enchantment for outdoor technology. We build our projects with sound systems, televisions, security, and safety in mind. Home automation is now taking a walk outside, making it even easier to throw that patio party.

This outdoor living room is installed with motorized drop screens that are embedded in the stone arches to help protect the space from sun and bugs. Not to mention on a super sunny day, the screens can be used so that the TV can be used too.

Seamless Transition

With a wall of sliding glass panels, it’s now hard to tell where the interior of a home ends and the exterior begins. These type of sliding doors makes for a wide-open transition between home and patio. Every home that likes to entertain needs to think about this addition a little more before closing the door on the idea.

Custom 4 leaf folding doors were installed here.

Add the Heat

Although heat is not something Texans yearn for, in the cooler months a fire feature comes highly recommended. It adds an extra flair to your outdoor living area, leaving you with a cozy place to make memories.

This fire pit area was created so 16 people could fit around it comfortably. S’mores, anyone?

There are so many fun things to add to your outdoor living space, take a look at our gallery to get more ideas.

Our Customers Love Us

We love our new patio cover and would definitely recommend Texas Custom Patios. Our contractor, Mark, and everyone that worked on our project was professional. The patio cover looks like it was built when the house was built. They used top quality materials, the roofline is seamless, and everything matches very well. Great job completed in a timely manner and we are totally satisfied with the whole experience.
