The Time is Now

August 6, 2015 Awards, Outdoor Living, Patio Design

 

Texas Custom Patios

We were recently featured in Hearth & Home Magazine for our gorgeous work in outdoor design. We are elated to be noted for our hard work and look forward to doing a dozen more designs in the coming month. If you are thinking about making your backyard beautiful for the holidays, the time to start, is now! Here’s a look at a cozy little corner of one of our award-winning projects.

A dramatic wood burning fireplace is the focal point of this outdoor living space (pictured above). It anchors one end of the gabled pavilion, soaring to the height of the vaulted ceiling. Though beautiful, this massive fireplace did create engineering and masonry challenges on the project.  “The manufactured beam running through the back of the fireplace required many hours of masonry work to make it look just perfect,” says builder Ryan Guikema.

That kind of attention to detail is evident in the entire Outdoor Room. The stone on the fireplace is carried through on the outdoor kitchen island and the seat wall. The seat wall itself is finished with cast-stone caps and low voltage lighting; it surrounds the entire project to define the perimeter of the room.

The ceiling of the pavilion is made of tongue-and-groove pine that has been whitewashed to contrast with the darker cedar beams. There are also curved corbels, rack bracing to match the beams, and columns finished in cedar.

Texas Custom Patios Awarded for Tremendous Growth

December 4, 2013 Awards, Patio Contractor

Fast 100 hi resAs Texas Custom Patios approaches its tenth year in existence, it has cause to celebrate. Not only is the company commemorating the longevity of that decade milestone, it has also been included for the first time in Houston Business Journal‘s Fast 100 list.

The list, ranked by revenue growth from 2010 to 2012, includes innovative businesses that have overcome obstacles and find time to give back to the community, all while growing at whopping rates. ~Houston Business Journal

The company saw a 96% growth rate between 2010 and 2012. In light of an unstable economy over the last decade, to see this kind of growth in a company that offers luxury outdoor living spaces is significant.

Texas Custom Patios was honored to be named among the seven Enterprise Champion finalists, who were selected based on demonstrating outstanding innovation, corporate culture and community service, in addition to thriving in revenue growth.

One initiative that has kept the company ahead is including sales duties in every job description. Increases sales present new challenges. “Our greatest challenge is managing growth. We have a sizable backlog of work, and we don’t want our lead time to increase from our current eight to 10 weeks out,” said Rob Douglass, the company’s president and founder. “That means more qualified crews in every trade and more sales consultants/project managers.”

Quality is a central focus as Texas Custom Patios moves forward. It boasts an A rating with the Better Business Bureau and is committed to maintaining a high quality product and level of service as it expands its services and presence in the greater Houston area.

Our Customers Love Us

Texas Custom Patios did an amazing job on our covered patio, outdoor kitchen, and outdoor living area. Steven listened to the things we were looking for, and was able to come up with original design ideas that included moving our outdoor garage-addition staircase and blending in an unusual roofline with a new gable style roof. The results were exactly what we were looking for. The construction process was professional, on-time, and on-budget. All of the crews were professional and the work they did exceeded our expectations. We are very happy with the results and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to add an outdoor living area to their home.
