Our Customers Love Us

We couldn’t be more pleased with Texas Custom Patios and Steven. We have completed two projects with them. We are enjoying our extended patio and our fireplace that they rebuilt. The service and quality of their work was the best we have seen. We could always count on Steven to answer all our questions, return our phone calls, and show up on time. The finished results are more than we expected. We would recommend Texas Custom Patios and we will use them again for our next project.
