No Such Thing as a Dumb Question

May 17, 2016 Patio Contractor, Patio Design

We are answering the most commonly asked question as part of a series we are doing each month.  So many want to know the answer to these questions, so we thought we would share it with all of you!  Last month we talked all about our specialty, and this month we are focusing on the big picture.  So here are some of the most commonly asked questions that all have, surprisingly, the same answer.

Can you put clear plastic over my pergola?

Can you add screens to my existing patio?

Can you just pour concrete?

As much as we would love to help you with all of that, we are a design build contractor who manages the project from start to finish scheduling multiple trades.  If your job requires only one trade, then it’s best to hire that trade directly!

If you are wanting to do more, we have the easiest process around … so easy that you’ll feel like it’s just one trade you are utilizing.

THE TCP DIFFERENCE

At Texas Custom Patios, 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 (that’s the easy part we mentioned), from the preliminary design stage to project completion and clean-up.

We specialize in providing turnkey design solutions for outdoor living, including: patio covers, outdoor kitchens, screened porches, room additions, pergolas, fireplaces and so much more!  See our website for a complete gallery or on Houzz to see finished projects!

NO SURPRISES: OUR EXACT QUOTE PROMISE

But that’s not all. At Texas Custom Patios, every estimate includes a detailed drawing with specifications and dimensions, plus rendered views and elevations – so you can see a preview of your completed project.

Builder Spotlight

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!

 

 

The HOA … “Oh, No Way”

September 30, 2015 Outdoor Living, Patio Contractor

RemodelFor many homeowners just the thought of dealing with a Home Owners Association (HOA) for a remodeling project invokes fear. Homeowners worry that they’ll find difficulty or denials when they work with the associations. Many times it’s easier to just squash the dream than deal with the red tape.

In the majority of areas where we build outdoor living spaces, homeowners live in areas governed by an HOA. The associations serve to set standards in the neighborhood to keep property values high and provide common resources to the neighborhood.

No fear; no headaches.

When you choose Texas Custom Patios to remodel your outdoor living space, our Project Developers handle all the headache of submissions and approvals with your HOA. Our Project Developers work with your HOAs on a regular basis, so we’re familiar with the process, the standards and the wait times. We confidently navigate the process for you, so you can avoid the fear and any headache with your HOA.  So no “oh no” moments to deal with on your part, just a perfect new patio to enjoy!

Project of the Month: January 2015

January 9, 2015 Outdoor Living

Gable roof outdoor patio cover was tied into an existing gable on this Sugar Land home. A massive stone wood-burning fireplace creates a beautiful focal point. We installed tongue and groove spruce for the ceiling, which is accentuated by the lofty exposed cedar-wrapped posts and beams. The wrought iron chandelier sets the mood for this outdoor space. See more here.

Our Customers Love Us

Steven was a true professional to work with. He spent time going over the possibilities for our patio as we have an unusual roof line. He kept his word about when he would be at the house and when his crew would begin working. It was a pleasure to work with someone that was honest and trustworthy. We LOVE our patio, it is a new room in our home. I would use Texas Custom Patios again and I would recommend them to others. Our patio is beautiful!
