The Chicken … Or The Egg?

March 7, 2016 Patio Contractor, Patio Design

So often you hear, which came first … The chicken?  Or the egg?   We are continuing our series of most popularly asked questions and today we are diving into a big one!  Which should we have done first? … The patio or the pool?

Here are some notes from our experts …

1)      Go after it with a “big picture” mentality

2)      Having a design/build contractor is necessary for this – make sure plumbing is only done once … have a total vision and then work backwards

3)      Pool first – have them pour all of the concrete – we will set our footing details while they are there – save the decorative finish of the concrete for after we have come in and done our part … we can do all of the decorative finish around the pool and to your patio (that way it’s cohesive and as simple as possible)

4)      Make sure the size and location of pool does not interfere with the space planning of the patio cover … or vice versa .. is the pool built far enough away from the home to create a covered area – or would you be good with a detached patio cover or something off the garage?

 

Think about your whole vision for the backyard, and unlike our chicken friends, we have an answer for you … pool first, patio second!

Our Customers Love Us

Rob came by our house and looked at what we wanted. We wanted our patio to cover a width of 50 feet between our bedroom and garage. Our garage was not parallel to our house and posed a building problem, but Rob solved that problem and blended our patio with our house and the garage. The crews were very professional and did a fantastic job. They cleaned up after themselves every day, and the backyard was immaculate when they finished. Rob did a fantastic job designing our patio the way we wanted it to be. Texas Custom Patios was the only company that also properly designed the patio for us. We love the results and would only recommend them to anyone else looking to add an outdoor living area to their home. They are a first rate company.
