Do you love your home, but your backyard needs a facelift? There’s a lot you can do no matter the space. Below is an older home… the owners wanted a makeover for their existing patio, so that’s exactly what we did, and now it’s perfect for entertaining. They now have something they are proud to call home.
Let’s take a closer look, below is the before image.
The lack of a patio cover didn’t keep this family from using their backyard, but they were desperate for some shade.
This new space gives the family a great area to entertain or to just hang out and enjoy the day with much needed shade and fans. For the cooler months a gas fire pit was added to keep things cozy.
The home had a wall of windows with French doors, so by adding the covered area this helped extend the living room into an indoor-outdoor living style.
The flooring is a herringbone pattern brick floor. It is the perfect accent for this 558 square foot patio cover. We needed to address a drainage issue, so installed a French drain system with black gravel. This not only serves the purpose of the drainage, but helps define the patio space.
We added an outdoor kitchen along the side wall. We had to build out a brick wall to go behind the grill. This kitchen has just enough space for prepping and serving meals and is equipped with plenty of doors and drawers for storage. The vent hood is covered with the same granite as the counter.
The stained beams on the ceiling really pop against the light paint of the tongue and groove. The hardie wrapped columns keep the style of the new space in line with the home. What was once an average patio is now a floor-to-ceiling stunner!

At Texas Custom Patios, we really get to know our customers. When you choose to build with us, you get your own project developer who will get to know you, your goals, and your style, and will oversee your entire outdoor living project, from start to finish.
Schedule your free consultation today by calling our office or filling out our contact form. We will send one of our experienced project developers to your home to gather information about your project. If we can provide an outdoor living project that meets your budget, then we will create a proposal for you.
Not sure how to budget for your outdoor living project? Look at our dream patio budgeting guide for some ideas.
After your project developer visits your home, we will provide you with a proposal that includes an exact quote proposal for your project. On average, the proposal will be completed in about a week. This proposal will include a design drawing with specifications and dimensions and rendered views and elevations so you can see what the project will look like after completion.
Your project developer will schedule an in-person meeting with you to go over your proposal and answer any questions. Once we have signed a contract, You can visit our office showroom to view samples and make final selections for your project.
When we say “exact quote,” we mean it. This quote is not an estimate, and there will be no surprise expenses during the course of your project. If changes or additions are made during the construction process, we will address those changes as they occur.
Some areas require a permit or HOA approval for outdoor living projects. The only thing your project developer needs in order to get approval for you is a copy of your lot survey. We will provide all of the additional required information.
If you live in a municipality that requires a building permit, we will handle every submission, inspection, and approval required. Depending on the location, this process can take between four and six weeks.
Scheduling of your project will depend on several factors — how many jobs we are currently working on, the weather, or if you have a particular deadline for an event at your home.
Materials are ordered in a timely fashion so they will be available when we begin construction on your project. Some materials are readily available while others require a special order. We will get you to make selections on stone and other materials quickly after the signing of a contract in case there are time constraints on having the material ready when needed.
Our crews work on several projects at a time. Many times throughout your project, you will see one crew work, have another trade come in to do their part and then the first crew come back to finish up their part of the project. We try to keep production of your project continuous once we begin working, but there may be times when we have some lag time between trades.
Your project will be managed and supervised by your Project Developer — the one that first met with you, created your project specifications, and signed off on your dream outdoor living space. Your Project Developer will communicate the construction schedule to you. They will be available at all times via email or phone before, during and after construction of your project. If you ever have any questions or concerns about your project, they are the one to contact.
Upon completion of your project, your Project Developer will walk through the outdoor living space with you to ensure you are completely satisfied with the completed project. We take pride in our work and want you to be delighted with your new space.
We provide you with a strong written warranty for both material and workmanship. We stand behind what we build and want you to know we will come and make repairs if necessary.
We have two goals when we are building outdoor living spaces — one is to satisfy you by exceeding your expectations and building you your dream outdoor living space. The other goal is to have you refer us to your friends and neighbors.
We want you to feel confident enough in us to share your experience with others. We do have a referral program in place and will send you a special thank you if one of your friends or family gives us a chance to build their outdoor living space.
We work throughout the Houston and Dallas – Fort Worth areas.

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.
Texas Custom Patios did an outstanding job. Justin came to my house and I explained to him what I wished to do, then came back and visited with me for the estimate. He presented to me a folder with a rendered photos of what the new patio cover would look like. I was amazed that he drew exactly what I was thinking about. He was very keen to accommodate all my requests, even taking over the pool coping job, which they usually don’t do, but did an awesome job. I contacted another company to get a different quote, but fortunately they were more expensive and far less professional. TCP was very diligent to make sure that my back yard still looked good through the job. The cover was done fast and professionally, and Justin always went that extra yard. I was really lucky that I contacted Texas Custom Patios. Highly recommended!
