Our Customers Love Us

LOVE our new outdoor kitchen and LOVE working with Ryan at Texas Custom Patios. This is our second round with this company…they designed and installed our beautiful covered patio last year, and this year we put in the outdoor kitchen. From design through implementation, every aspect of the project went beautifully. Ryan is a pro, and no detail or question is too small or seen as a hassle. He wants to make the client happy…that is his number one objective and it’s totally obvious every step of the way. And the contractors they bring in are the same way..they will get you exactly what you want, and will help you make great decisions along the way. We love entertaining and being in our outdoor space…more than we ever thought we would. Thanks Ryan and TCP!!
