From Our Home to YoursDecember 22, 2017 Interview, Patio Contractor
Chances are if you are reading this blog right now, you are doing some patio pondering. So will it be a covered patio or pergola? Outdoor kitchen or dining (or both)? Maybe a fireplace or perhaps a beautifully lit fire pit? Stone, granite, paint color … so many things to think about, but your first question should be … why Texas Custom Patios?
Let us help you answer that first! We are a family-owned and operated business with offices located in Houston and Irving, Texas. We proudly serve the greater Houston area and parts of Dallas/Fort Worth. We have completed thousands of outdoor living projects since we opened our patio doors in 2004.
The TCP Difference
We offer personalized service and flexible payment terms, and when you choose to work with us, you’ll work with the same project developer every step of the way. Start to finish, preliminary design stage all the way to project completion and clean-up. It’s nice to have one main person that you can really count on each day.
We specialize in providing turnkey design solutions for outdoor living, including patio covers; outdoor kitchens; screened porches; room additions; pergolas and decks; outdoor fire features and so much more! View our portfolio here to get a better idea of what you would like.
We Stand Behind Our Work
At Texas Custom Patios, we’re confident in our work, and we want you to feel confident, too! That’s why we offer a two-year warranty for materials and workmanship, and a five-year warranty for structural components of your home improvement project. We also have one million dollars in liability insurance to protect against accidents and injury.
Exact Quote Promise
When you schedule a consultation with one of our experienced project developers, you’ll receive more than just a ballpark figure. We’ll tell you exactly how much your outdoor living project will cost – down to the penny! So many times if you get a bid from multiple builders, they will give you a soft bid to entice you, but the costs add up as the project gets built, leaving you with something much higher than you were promised. Every estimate of ours includes a detailed drawing with specifications and dimensions, plus rendered views and elevations -so you can see a preview of your completed project! It’s like your day dreams come to life on paper, making it that much more fun to start building!
The Best of the Best (we always come full circle)
Year after year we are awarded and recognized for being the best in the business. We constantly receive an A+ from the BBB (read our reviews here), and we are noticed by everyone from the National Association of Home Builders to fans on Houzz. We love hearing from our customers and sharing the stories of how what we build for them has changed their lives.
We hope you will give us the chance to build a dream for you, but before we do that, let’s get to know us.
Meet our Houston team!
I was a YMCA Director before starting Texas Custom Patios in 2004. The thing I enjoy most about TCP is seeing our talented Project Developers take our business in new directions with creative design ideas and problem-solving techniques. Fun fact… I’m preparing to be a first-time grandfather in 2018!
Katherine Douglass – Managing Partner and Office Manager
Katherine is energetic and loves to laugh!
I love being a part of a company that works with homeowners to create a new and exciting outdoor space at their homes. Fun fact… I have taught dance for more years than I want to admit and have been the Grandmother and Rat King in BalletForte’s Nutcracker for 16 years.
I love designing unique/functional outdoor spaces and teaching others to do the same! Fun fact… I once broke both arms at the same time. Ouch!
My background is in Commercial Project Management and Contractor/Retail Sales. I love the ability we bring to make someone’s backyard dreams a reality. Fun fact… I’m a musician and am pretty handy in the kitchen… outdoor kitchen that is.
It is great working for TCP because we get to help homeowners bring their backyards from a dream/wish to reality. Fun fact… I am a huge fan of sports and music.
I love being able to create a space that families will enjoy and use to come together. Fun fact… I love to travel and have been able to visit almost 20 countries and have lived in 6 countries for 6 months or more.
My prior careers were in bridge construction and account management for a construction supply company. I love seeing a project grow from a drawing to the actual finished product, also I love the people we work with. Fun fact… I’m a big baseball fan and love hanging by the ocean!
I come from a project managing background for a low voltage electric company. I love working with Texas Custom Patios because it gives me the ability to provide people with a quality project, plus I love seeing our projects featured online and in magazines! Fun fact… I have broken over 10 bones before the age of 30.
Kendall Adams – Office assistant
I am so thankful for my people, the ones I get to do life with. I love the great people I get to work with at TCP! Fun fact… I like to climb mountains, jump hurdles, and enjoy roller coaster rides.
Before working for Texas Custom Patios I was a System Consultant, but joined the TCP family 5 years ago. It’s fun to be able to talk to clients on the phone to find out their wants and needs of a project and get them set up with a Project Manager. It’s great to be able to help them get started with that dream project. Fun fact… My family and I love Disney World. We generally vacation there once or twice a year.
