“Cool Cabana”

July 28, 2017 Patio Design

 

 

Named “Cool Cabana” by Hearth & Home for August, this project in Houston is simply stunning.   This covered patio project was completed earlier this year and is not only attracting new neighbor friends for this homeowner, but it’s catching the eye of many.  This was also our featured Project of the Month for May of this year, to explore all the details, visit here.

August 18, 2016 Interview

Each month we like to put a spotlight on someone or something that helps make Texas Custom Patios the best in the business.  This month we are taking spotlight to a whole new level by turning on the lights and  setting off some major sparks with our electrician extraordinaire!   Let’s flip the switch and meet Milan!

Milan
Full Name:  Milan Tadic

 

How long have you worked with TCP? Four great years!

 

How long in this business? Fifteen years.

 

What’s your “specialty?” Anything that has to do with electrical!

 

What do you enjoy most about what you do?  I’m always in a different place, meeting new people, and overcoming new electrical challenges, it’s so fun to do something different each day.

 

What’s inspiring in the construction/build world to you?  I love to see all of the new styles of projects being built and more than anything I love to see people happy.  When a homeowner sees the progress made and they light up because they are so thrilled, that’s worth it to me!

 

Do you have a favorite project from the past? I have so many that I love, but one that really shines brightly to me is this one …

 

Texas Custom Patios
I love it because it’s just so different !

 

What trends have you seen in outdoor design in the last few years? I’ve seen a lot of “cozy” projects … smaller, but very customized!

 

What do you see to be popular in the future? I imagine everything becoming more digital and lots of LED lighting!

 

What’s the one thing that most clients say they HAVE to have? Lighting, of course!  And fans … Texas needs fans!

 

What is your biggest obstacle you face during the design/build process?  Figuring out the perfect spacing between lights.  You have to be very careful or you will end up with a strobe effect … and that’s not what you want!

 

What do you hear most often from clients when everything is completed? They always say the completed project exceeded their expectations and they love it!

 

What do you think outdoor living space does for a home and person?  It builds value to the home and a place where memories can be made!

 

What do you hope to build/design in the future?   I just want to keep being creative!

April 15, 2016 Interview, Patio Design
We take so much pride in not only what we build, but who builds it!  Often times homeowners fear who will be the one at their home while they are not there (or present), trust is a very important part of our process. We are a general contractor that have trusted Project Developers and subcontractors that we consider to be our partners in creating your outdoor living space.  Many times, our TCP family member becomes a member of your family … enjoying backyard bbqs in the dream space they built together!

Mike - Texas Custom Patios
Full name: Michael Rodriguez,  Owner of Tile Services

 

How long with TCP? I’ve been with TCP since their beginning in 2004 . I started with them by handling their tile installations. I now handle building their outdoor kitchens by welding them on site to the stone or brick installations and installing their appliances.  I handle most of their stone and brick installations such as fire pits, fireplaces, columns , sitting benches, etc.  I continue doing tile and travertine installations for Texas Custom Patios .

 

How long have you been in this business?  I’ve been in business since 1998 doing tile installs for custom home builders .

 

What’s your “specialty?”  I would say I am a tile installation expert, but now after working with Texas Custom Patios I feel I have learned the ins and outs of outdoor kitchens.  I’ve built them every way you possibly can … out of wood, cinder block,  metal studs and now we weld them together out of galvanized tubing which I find to be a much cleaner look, stronger and safer .

 

What do you enjoy most about what you do?  Making customers happy and pleasing them by making their ideas become reality .

 

What’s inspiring in the construction/build world to you?  Making a simple idea written on scratch paper come true.

 

Do you have a favorite project from the past?  I really don’t have a one favorite project, I believe all the projects have their special unique feature since all of them are so different .

 

What trends have you seen in outdoor design in the last few years?  Transformation of a simple patio to an extraordinary outdoor living area.

 

What’s the one thing that most clients say they HAVE to have?  A flat screen TV to watch sports!

 

What is your biggest obstacle you face during the design/build process?  The rain.

 

What do you hear most often from clients when everything is completed?  How satisfied they are and can’t wait to throw a party.

 

What do you think outdoor living space does for a home and person?  A great added feature that gives the customer more area for guests and entertaining.

 

What do you hope to build/design in the future? Whatever a customer can dream up!

 

So you heard it here … get to dreaming and Texas Custom Patios can build it with the help of our very talented, Michael!

 

 

Have a project in mind? We work throughout the Houston and Dallas - Fort Worth areas.

Our Customers Love Us

Texas Custom Patios was a pleasure to work with from first call to final detail on our patio cover and flooring. Everyone we worked with — office personnel on scheduling, crews on fast and quality work, and Steven helping with design ideas and scheduling and issue resolution — were all what contracting should be. We had been looking at our odd roofline, chimney location and numerous angles for over 10 years and received numerous quotes and estimates that just didn’t work or the contractors flatly said they couldn’t do what we were looking for . . . until Steven and TCP arrived and did exactly what we wanted (and more) on time, on budget, no hassle. We love our new space and receive many compliments on the look and functionality of the space and design. We would love to have TCP and Steven do another project for us and we recommend them to anyone.
