Time to Grow

January 22, 2020 Outdoor Living, Patio Contractor

Thanks to a robust demand in 2019, the outdoor living builder will double the size of its shade in 2020!

Texas Custom Patios, the premier builder and leader in outdoor-living designs for Houston since 2004, and in DFW since January 2015, will expand well past its immediate Mid-Cities roots in 2020.  While Dallas and surrounding areas have been dominating the business for the past few years, the demand for excellence in outdoor living style is growing exponentially in and around Fort Worth.  It is of the upmost importance to listen and serve the demand for the trailblazing owners of Texas Custom Patios. 

While they will continue their powerful presence in the existing neighborhoods of Dallas and a small area of Fort Worth, they are excited to now embrace the entire metroplex area.  This includes the communities of Aledo, Benbrook, Southwest Fort Worth, Crowley, Burleson, Mansfield, Grand Prairie, Cedar Hill and all of Arlington on the south side of the DFW area.  The custom builders will also focus their time in Denton, Argyle, Keller, Trophy Club, Southlake, Westlake, Northlake, Colleyville, Lewisville, Grapevine, Hurst, Euless, and Bedford.

Texas Custom Patios has been exceeding expectations by leading the way in design and build quality for outdoor-living projects.  The builder, a pioneer in custom design, is family-owned and operated, standing behind every bid with honesty and integrity.   After building more than 1,700 projects in Houston and DFW, it was only a matter of time before they decided to share their love for outdoor luxurious living by expanding. 

“DFW is a perfect market for outdoor living – the climate, spacious backyards and the lifestyle.  This area had explosive growth during the last five years that we have been here and we feel as though we are always playing catch up. With the massive demand for builds, we recruited and trained more great designers and project managers so that this year, we’re ready to meet the needs of this expanded area,” says Texas Custom Patios President Rob Douglass.  Complimentary quotes can be scheduled by calling 972-915-2727.  For more information visit texascustompatios.com  Follow @TexasCustom Patios on Facebook, @txcustompatios on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

From Inspiration to Reality

October 30, 2018 Patio Design
Often times we show you featured projects and give you the finished details, but omit all the hard work details between the before and after pics.  So here’s a look back at last month’s featured project and some of the grittier details of what it takes to do a project like this.
This home needed an updated look in the backyard. They had a small pergola over a small patio that just didn’t give them the outdoor living space they needed or wanted. The homeowner wanted a Tuscan/Old World look similar to the photo below.

 

Added Space

Texas Custom Patios added 705 Square Feet of covered space with this outdoor living space.  This is in line with one of our medium scale design/build outdoor living projects.

 

Cost

The cost for something similar to this will range between 50-70k depending on final selections.  We completely changed the look from an early 2000’s style to a Tuscan, classic vibe.

 

Time Range

On average this sized space will take 2-3 months of build time and take a few months of planning.  From the day the contract is finalized, we are roughly 4-5 months to completion!

Turnkey Design Solutions

August 31, 2018 Patio Design

What does that mean? Well, turnkey design solutions plays a huge part in what we do here at Texas Custom Patios,  we are not architects… we are builders, creators, designers!  We specialize in the art of unifying aesthetics and function to create a beautiful outdoor living area that is not only visually appealing, but also uniquely purposeful.    Our services include: patio covers; outdoor kitchens; screened porches and patios; room additions; pergolas and decks; outdoor fireplaces; and more. View our portfolio.

Every square inch of each project is meticulously  thought out and custom to each home.  There are no two projects alike with every single one appearing to be built when the home was built.  Everything from roofing material to siding and brick, you won’t be able to tell where your house stops and your outdoor living space begins.  Part of the fun is being able to sit down with you and create your dream space.  As you come up with ideas our project managers talk you through the process to tell you what would be best both as a build out and for your budget.

When you schedule a consultation with one of our experienced project developers, you will be walked through our process, we will hear your ideas and discuss options.  From there the developer will leave and develop a proposal that is more than just a ballpark figure of the cost!  At Texas Custom Patios, every estimate includes a detailed drawing with specifications and dimensions, plus rendered views and elevations – so you can see a preview of your completed project.  So like we said before, we create, we design, we build and you enjoy, and all for one cost and one crew.  You will have one person as an advocate for you and your project, making it easy to keep things on track and know what’s going on with your new space from start to finish!

 

 

How Long Does it Take to Build a Porch?

July 30, 2018 Patio Contractor

Great question!

Actual construction of a porch can take anywhere from three to 16 weeks, depending on project complexity and the availability of the construction crews your porch pro works with. But the entire process, from design to permitting to final construction, can take up to six months, says Douglass of Texas Custom Patios.

Our very own Rob Douglass was recently interviewed in a wonderful article by Houzz.  So many great questions were answered, like:  What to consider before building a porch, what’s the upkeep like, the difference between materials and how much does it cost?

Our Customers Love Us

Steven was a true professional to work with. He spent time going over the possibilities for our patio as we have an unusual roof line. He kept his word about when he would be at the house and when his crew would begin working. It was a pleasure to work with someone that was honest and trustworthy. We LOVE our patio, it is a new room in our home. I would use Texas Custom Patios again and I would recommend them to others. Our patio is beautiful!
