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!

We would like to spotlight someone who has been working with us for 12 years, he knows a lot about building your dream patio, outdoor kitchen, and adding style to your outdoor life!  Take a moment to get to know one of our most talented partners …
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!

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.

Texas Custom Patios Expands to Dallas

January 9, 2015 Patio Contractor

we're expanding!Texas Custom Patios has been exceeding expectations by leading the way in design-build outdoor living in the Houston area since 2004. After building more than 1000 projects in Houston, we have decided to share our love for outdoor living with our I-45 neighbors to the north by opening a Dallas branch of Texas Custom Patios in January of 2015. Now Dallas area residents who have admired our work on Houzz or in magazines can finally have their own Texas Custom Patios outdoor living space. This is also a great opportunity for our customers who have left behind a beloved patio when they moved to the Dallas area to enjoy a new Texas Custom Patios project in their new home. If you live in or around Dallas and you would like to learn more about how we can design and build a great outdoor space for you, call our new office at 214-460-5934.

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

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!!
