Taking Luxury Outdoors

July 28, 2019 Outdoor Living, Patio Design

Trending more and more each year is outdoor living, homeowners are now investing in a lifestyle that can be enjoyed on the exterior of the home. Life is short, so why not have your home be your own personal paradise. At Texas Custom Patios, we specialize in perfecting that outdoor living dream custom tailored to your home.

There are a few places where you can upgrade and take your outdoor living to the next level!

Outdoor Kitchens

Having a grill is nice, but having a built-in sizzler, sink and drink fridge is even nicer! We will custom build anything you want as long as it makes sense in the area that you would like. Meticulous detail goes into the design process so that you end up with something that is both beautiful and functional.

This kitchen is equipped with both a Big Green Egg and large gas grill, a microwave, a sink, plenty of storage and counter space. There is a full size fridge in the storage closet at the end of the space.

Technology

With the love for outdoor living becoming more popular, so has the enchantment for outdoor technology. We build our projects with sound systems, televisions, security, and safety in mind. Home automation is now taking a walk outside, making it even easier to throw that patio party.

This outdoor living room is installed with motorized drop screens that are embedded in the stone arches to help protect the space from sun and bugs. Not to mention on a super sunny day, the screens can be used so that the TV can be used too.

Seamless Transition

With a wall of sliding glass panels, it’s now hard to tell where the interior of a home ends and the exterior begins. These type of sliding doors makes for a wide-open transition between home and patio. Every home that likes to entertain needs to think about this addition a little more before closing the door on the idea.

Custom 4 leaf folding doors were installed here.

Add the Heat

Although heat is not something Texans yearn for, in the cooler months a fire feature comes highly recommended. It adds an extra flair to your outdoor living area, leaving you with a cozy place to make memories.

This fire pit area was created so 16 people could fit around it comfortably. S’mores, anyone?

There are so many fun things to add to your outdoor living space, take a look at our gallery to get more ideas.

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!

The Best of the Best

January 30, 2017 Awards, Patio Contractor

best of the best

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.

Our Customers Love Us

Texas Custom Patios were a great pleasure to work with on our outdoor addition. They listened intently to what we wanted to create, and gave expert advise on how to make it work. The workers were extremely professional and very clean. The workmanship was superior and the quality of products used was the best. Almost a year after completion they are still in contact and making sure we are still pleased with their work. I could not imagine not using them for a project.
