The Chicken … Or The Egg?

March 7, 2016 Patio Contractor, Patio Design

So often you hear, which came first … The chicken?  Or the egg?   We are continuing our series of most popularly asked questions and today we are diving into a big one!  Which should we have done first? … The patio or the pool?

Here are some notes from our experts …

1)      Go after it with a “big picture” mentality

2)      Having a design/build contractor is necessary for this – make sure plumbing is only done once … have a total vision and then work backwards

3)      Pool first – have them pour all of the concrete – we will set our footing details while they are there – save the decorative finish of the concrete for after we have come in and done our part … we can do all of the decorative finish around the pool and to your patio (that way it’s cohesive and as simple as possible)

4)      Make sure the size and location of pool does not interfere with the space planning of the patio cover … or vice versa .. is the pool built far enough away from the home to create a covered area – or would you be good with a detached patio cover or something off the garage?

 

Think about your whole vision for the backyard, and unlike our chicken friends, we have an answer for you … pool first, patio second!

Our Customers Love Us

Texas Custom Patios were a great pleasure to work with on our outdoor addition. They listened intently to what we wanted to create, and gave expert advise on how to make it work. The workers were extremely professional and very clean. The workmanship was superior and the quality of products used was the best. Almost a year after completion they are still in contact and making sure we are still pleased with their work. I could not imagine not using them for a project.
