It could be a huge family affair or maybe just you, your spouse and the crazy kids, either way, let’s make it memorable.
If you don’t have a Texas Custom Patio just yet to enjoy on Easter, but are thinking about it … check here to be inspired by different projects of many styles!
Just try to remember the day of any celebration that you have done all that you can do, so sit back and enjoy!
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!

“I’ll start my diet on Monday,” “I’ll start exercising after we get back from vacation,” “I’ll slow down and try to enjoy life after my next big promotion.” These are all things that many of us say too often. With 2017 comin’ in hot, you’ll be telling yourself … I’ll just make it my new year’s resolution and start next year, right?
Speaking of resolutions, here are the TOP TEN resolutions made year after year.
10. Read more
9. Travel more
8. Learn something new
7. Won’t make a resolution
6. Get organized
5. Spend more time with family and friends
4. Spend less, save more
3. Enjoy life to the fullest
2. Lose weight
1. Stay fit and healthy (we have all done that one before)
While we agree with staying fit and healthy, we agree with number 3 the most. Everyone should enjoy life to the fullest! So when you’re brushing your teeth, do a little dance. When you’re checking out at the grocery store, stop to smile and say hello to the person behind the counter, and most importantly when you’re in your backyard, have a place you are proud to call home.
Go ahead, fantasize for a moment. Which of these do you like the best?
Now we realize you may have to do a little of number 4 before you can start ripping up grass and laying concrete, picking out grills and paint colors, but you can get there! We have a nifty little timeline to help you, too! If you are set on having a custom patio built by a certain date, the guideline below will help you know when to get started.

We would definitely recommend Texas Custom Patios. Ryan and the crew that works with him were very efficient and immaculate. Ryan let us know each day what steps would be taken during the process building our pergola for our patio. From the construction, staining, and installing the electrical outlets and fans. Valentine is a true visionary with his ideas and construction. Everyone is truly impressed with the job they did.
