What are our favorite products and trends this year?

Reclaimed Wood

Reclaimed hardwood ceiling in Royal OaksOur first pick isn’t exactly new, rather it’s better described as new again. Using reclaimed wood in ceilings and beams is a huge trend. It’s environmentally sound to put old beams to new uses. Vintage timbers offer a beautiful look that our customers love. Each piece has a unique charm seen in the character of its imperfections and known in the history of the piece, as if it had a story. Reclaimed wood with a tight, dense grain that comes from slow growth is superior in quality and durability. We’re currently working with a lumber company that mills to order.

Manufactured Stone Veneer

Manufactured stone veneer gives the beautiful look and feel of real stone, but it is surprisingly affordable and easier to install. The lightweight stone veneer is molded in forms made from hand-selected natural stone. Manufactured stone veneer is a believable faux option great for patios and facades. Maybe one of its best qualities is that manufactured stone is a sustainable product!

Dramatic Patio Doors

There really is something relaxing about an open air space. Multi-door sliding doors, pocket doors and even french doors leading to the patio can provide that seamless transition between indoors and out. They’re perfect to throw open for family gatherings or parties and are energy-efficient in between. This is an expensive option, but it adds a dramatic impact between indoor and outdoor living.

Our Customers Love Us

Rob came by our house and looked at what we wanted. We wanted our patio to cover a width of 50 feet between our bedroom and garage. Our garage was not parallel to our house and posed a building problem, but Rob solved that problem and blended our patio with our house and the garage. The crews were very professional and did a fantastic job. They cleaned up after themselves every day, and the backyard was immaculate when they finished. Rob did a fantastic job designing our patio the way we wanted it to be. Texas Custom Patios was the only company that also properly designed the patio for us. We love the results and would only recommend them to anyone else looking to add an outdoor living area to their home. They are a first rate company.
