Full name: Michael Rodriguez, Owner of Tile Services
How long with TCP? I’ve been with TCP since their beginning in 2004 . I started with them by handling their tile installations. I now handle building their outdoor kitchens by welding them on site to the stone or brick installations and installing their appliances. I handle most of their stone and brick installations such as fire pits, fireplaces, columns , sitting benches, etc. I continue doing tile and travertine installations for Texas Custom Patios .
How long have you been in this business? I’ve been in business since 1998 doing tile installs for custom home builders .
What’s your “specialty?” I would say I am a tile installation expert, but now after working with Texas Custom Patios I feel I have learned the ins and outs of outdoor kitchens. I’ve built them every way you possibly can … out of wood, cinder block, metal studs and now we weld them together out of galvanized tubing which I find to be a much cleaner look, stronger and safer .
What do you enjoy most about what you do? Making customers happy and pleasing them by making their ideas become reality .
What’s inspiring in the construction/build world to you? Making a simple idea written on scratch paper come true.
Do you have a favorite project from the past? I really don’t have a one favorite project, I believe all the projects have their special unique feature since all of them are so different .
What trends have you seen in outdoor design in the last few years? Transformation of a simple patio to an extraordinary outdoor living area.
What’s the one thing that most clients say they HAVE to have? A flat screen TV to watch sports!
What is your biggest obstacle you face during the design/build process? The rain.
What do you hear most often from clients when everything is completed? How satisfied they are and can’t wait to throw a party.
What do you think outdoor living space does for a home and person? A great added feature that gives the customer more area for guests and entertaining.
What do you hope to build/design in the future? Whatever a customer can dream up!
So you heard it here … get to dreaming and Texas Custom Patios can build it with the help of our very talented, Michael!
